i'm just dismayed by the so called improvements of symbian.. the device it self is being put to waste..
putting maemo 6 on this might do the magic..

Dev, 05 Jun 2010If you think S^3 is just a new theme, you never used and tried to undertood what S^1 is! Come ... moreduh! of course im not talking about the s^1..
its pretty obvious that its not meant for touch screens.
im talking about the s60v.. which is on the n97..
same old but OS but different theme..
if they want change.. then overhaul it..
People thanks for trying to help, however that we know long ago. Most modern Nokia,Samsung,LG,SE Symbian devices use the ARM1176. What I wanted to know is which version exactly ! Is like saying is using a Ford engine. What I want to know is which Ford engine? Ford builds engines from 1litre to 10litres. From tractor to f1 engines. Nokia admits openly the ARM11 part plus the security features (that's the 76 part). I have found out with difficulty, is one of the OMAP versions. I even have a good idea which one and who the manufacturer is (TI). What I want to know is, will they stick with the A8 or have taken the plunge to the a9? For example the Snapdragon is still using the old cortex8 core. Eitherway, tx for trying to help. I am aware this info is still a bit clouded yet. More rumors then fact. Can't wait for the N8 :-)
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010You sure is USD350 and not euro 350? Wow that's amazingly cheap in price!! I think i will ge... moreApprox USD 350. Euro price is for Euro region but it will change as the operators in Europe will be including their packages and contracts to work around this price. But in Asian region it is predicted to be available at around USD 350
It has been a practice, when you use your mobile extensively and if your battery included is a low capacity battery than a spare battery would come in handy. So its not a big deal and as I said earlier, N10 ( expected name ) would be available with 1500 mAh battery and easily replacable as any other cell on market...So we do not have a big issue and N8 will make upto the masses unless if it has any other issue which we will be able to know only when you start using it yourself...

Wow that's amazingly cheap in price!!
I think i will get one and get another for my younger sister if what u said is true.
Thanks for the info anyway :)
Manfred, 06 Jun 2010Don't worry about the ratings now. The cell is not out yet. What the cell manufacturers want t... moreYea! Totally agree with you!
I will focus on voting now too to break the record of 50k votes by Monday.
Of course my vote will be 10 10 and 10 :)
Yes you are right, the tests have shown that it was scheduled for June, but due to some software glitches and ultimately compelling Nokia to redefine the S3 and as said mid July to early August at the price of USD 350 in East Asian region. But in India the launch will be around mid to end August. In India the price is always higher by about USD 50 to USD 75 ( maybe be due to higher taxes )
Don't worry about the ratings now. The cell is not out yet. What the cell manufacturers want to see is popularity. After its release you can ask the forum for the actual ratings. Let's see if it will get 50000votes before Monday. It has already became clear, the N8 will break popularity records on this site :-) For example, the Xperia x10 only has half the votes and its has dropped at 45% site relevance. The N8 hovers around 95% ! ! !
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010Mario, it's an ARM 1176 processor, as mentioned here:
http://www.betanews.com/article/Introdu... moreYes, its a ARM 1176 processor with default clockrate of 750 Mhz.
Tom-Helge, 06 Jun 2010I see that the Nokia N8 have got a price here in Norway now. Ofc this price is not final price... moreIsn't this prove that X10 got threaten by the coming of N8?
Else it should not lower its price so early rite?
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010how long can you shot 720p video on N8??Anon,
# Video playback time (H.264 720p, 30 fps, maximum): 6 h (via HDMI to TV)
# Video recording time (H.264 720p, 25 fps, maximum): 3 h 20 mins
from Nokia's N8 specs here:
3 hours and 20 minutes of 720p recording time is very impressive!
George, 06 Jun 2010It looks like the N8 may get 50.000 votes before the end of this month! Usually a device gets ... moreYea, thanks to those haters who keep voting down on this awesome device.
However, people who likes this phone will still buy it regardless what the rating is in the end.
The total number of votes mean the popularity of the phone. The higher the more popular. Not base on the voting result itself.
Mario, it's an ARM 1176 processor, as mentioned here:
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010how long can you shot 720p video on N8??5-10 minutes of video recording, then it will reboot/autorecover 10x afterwards till the OS will be stable again, just jokin'. I hope the ARM11 CPU is top of its class, ARM11 MPCore used in Nvidia APX 2500.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010Nokia rules! Recording popularity and hits, highest votes even before the launch!"...recording highest votes even before the launch.."
it doesn't mean anything, let see what happen then if it starts its debut like N97 did
[deleted post]Mini n97 has screen brightness issue, it is very bright even i set it to minimum
Does anyone know what processor is the N8 using? (nokia only mention the arm11) After lots of phone calls and email I came to the conclusion is a OMAP 3630 ARM11 (cortex8 45nm), a 720Mhz processor down cloaked to 680Mhz. However, there is still a small chance for the brand new OMAP 4430 dualcore (cortex9), at the same clock rate.
