Sk, 07 Jun 2010It is just a thought that it would have been better if N8 came up with the latest processors a... moreSk, I understand your apprehension about the possibility the N8 coming short in terms of power under the hood. Let me help you allay some of your fears and possible misconception.
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.
Lol, 07 Jun 2010Dont worry. The default clockrate of Cpu is 750 mhz but Nokia has underclocked it to 680 mhz (... moreThanks....where did u gt this info from ?...i tried searching in the ARM site but could no find one.....and by the way is this processor a Single or dual core?

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.

Nokia N8 vs Motorola Milestone XT720
n8 is the king. it just shows how lame moto is!
