do you happen to have an n900 by any chance? im debating if i should overclock mine, but i notice they say you have to flash it and manually run the firmware updates. does that mean no updates notifications will come to your phone if you overclock it? do you know of anyways that it can be overclocked and continue to recieve the updates?
I am not gonna judje this phone only by itz specs,i am waiting to release it and for itz actual performance . Love N8.

1. The the most important fact here is that the N97 used Symbian^1 which was basically the old Series 60 OS running with a touch UI layer. I don't think I have to explain what a bad idea that turned out to be. N8 on the other hand runs a completely reworked OS with an UI that is designed for not only for touch screens but also hard keys. This new UI introduces single touch interface and pinch zoom that was lacking in the previous version.
2. The CPU in N97 was a disappointing ARM 11 434 MHz processor. In comparison, the N8 uses an ARM 11 680 MHz processor. This incidentally is the fastest CPU Nokia has ever stuffed into any of their phones. I point to your statement that "Nokia is still sticking with 600Mhz" which is not true.
3. Not only has the N97 had a slower CPU, it also lacked a GPU. As a matter of act the Symbian^1 would not even have taken advantage on a GPU even if there was one. Symbian^3 on the other hand was designed to optimize the usage of a GPU whereby its UI runs on this allowing for very smooth operation. And importantly, it runs a powerful Broadcom GPU.
I hope I do justice in explaining what an amazing user experience the N8 promises with the these upgrades even with a 'slower' but no less adequate CPU.

Sk , 07 Jun 2010800Mhz would hv been enough and 1Ghz would hv been betterDont worry. The default clockrate of Cpu is 750 mhz but Nokia has underclocked it to 680 mhz (dont know why). It can be safely overclocked to 850 mhz.

im currently using an n900 (and i love itt), but i wanna get this too now. im stunned by the things they've put into this phone. its like the only thing they left out is a qwerty keyboard. so sexy....

this phone isn't even a flagship yet it makes other phones look like a joke. Alumin body with anodized paint? SOOOO ballin.. thats some serious build quality!!!
