So it seems nokia is still fine-tuning their S^3 platform is it? Hmm....if it outperforms my expectation, then I will definitely get it since I need a second handset soon. ^^ If it is around 350 USD, then it will definitely be a hit seeing how good the camera is =D

plz devlop email option like blackberryHello.
Nokia already has a very useful Email service that is available for free(1). Please check it out here email.nokia.com.
I must explain though that this is not same as the Blackberry service where you pay to have email pushed to your device (like SMS) while with Nokia email, you use data service to download the email from Nokia server(2).
The good thing about it is that (apart from being free) you get a very good email client plus multiple choice of supported emails (unlike an Iphone). I personally have configured the client in my N95 for 2 Gmails, 1 Yahoo mail, 2 pop mails and 1 Hotmail that I sync at the same time.
(1) Nokia does not charge you but you might incur data charge is you don't use wifi.
(2) Since you need to sync the emails, you will be using a lot of battery juice is you use Always On settings. I use manual update and check my emails every hour or so.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010Does this phone have a qwerty optionIt has an onscreen qwerty keyboard, but not a physical one.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2010ok thanks for the correction..
i'm just dismayed by the so called improvements of symbian..... moreHave you used S3 already? honest question because the people that have used all agree it is vastly better tha S1, both in speed and intuitiveness....
If Nokia thinks the N8 will succede they should release the N8 the same time an the New iPhone 4g,then we will see if the new Symbian^3 is going to really be able to compete with Apple,but we have to wait until late August-Early September before we do see the N8,Nokia hope because of the camera an flash they have put on the N8 it will sell better i wrong idea for such a succesful company, its the easy of the software an speed,as Symbian sometimes drags alittle an needs a change so hope the Symbian^3 is faster
I have just a gal using her n8 prototype in nokia c5 road show, just the phone physical looks is a great success

plz devlop email option like blackberryNokia does have its own email service. Check out email.nokia.com. It can be setup to be as effective as Blackberry (instant receiving) for no extra charge to Nokia but it means you will be taxing your battery. I use this service and receive my Gmail x2, Yahoo mail, Hotmail, company popmail and an Ovimail on my phone with manual updates every hour.
* No extra charge to Nokia means you don't pay for your emails like with Blackberry but do still get charged for data if you use that instead of wifi.

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...

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% ! ! !
