Thanks for your advice Tom-Helge. I've thought about it, and looked at the specs and features for both devices. You made a good argument, but I've decided to get Nokia N8 instead.
[deleted post]I might not know much about Nokia N8, but this guy here knows pretty well what he's talking about: http://www.unwiredview.com/2010/05/03/interview-with-eldar-murtazin-part-1-nokia-n8-leak-market-prospects-and-symbian3/
And this is what i have been doing for a long time here now, giving you links with some explanations / facts and so on FROM GUYS THAT KNOWS WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.
Now, how are you gonna explain that what the main guy for Mobile-Review web page are saying are lies?.
That guy have tried that phone out now, and i believe his words 605758946792 times more than anyone else in here.
Believing in Nokia 100% is something that i would never do when you see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJpEuMidcSU&feature=player_embedded
How do you explain that.
Nokia told us all that the UI effects and everything there would be super smooth and fast.
But what did happen?. Yup, they lied to us.
N8 is a threat, or Tom would not be here. He would say who cares about that phone, and not be posting here day in and day out.
A huge number of people are interested in this phone, and it will out sell ANY Sony Ericsson device by a wide margin, simply because Nokia has a much greater mindshare in this world then them.
I personally cannot wait for the N8, simply because of it's nice well rounded set of great features for the price.
I do not care that it's CPU is not the most powerful. In short time, the X10's CPU will not be the most powerful, as another phone will come out beating that. Does that make that phone crap all of a sudden. Of course not.
Rebel, 03 Jun 2010Now yours is one hella funny post.
Symbian doesn't need a very fast processor to run smoot... moreWhen they use hardware in the Nokia N8 that was already outdated in Q2 2009, yep, they don't know what they are doing when it's about making a high-end phone.
They can't call the phone for high-end then.
Anyways, enjoy this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJpEuMidcSU&feature=player_embedded
Lets see how smooth the Nokia N8 is really getting in the real world after it's released.

You can't say that because of the GPU the CPU in the Nokia N8 will be like a 900 MHz CPU ROFL." y the number 900? of course nokia can't ever reach ur x10 magical 1ghz right? (sarcastically)
[deleted post]i would buy a ferrari with fiat engine if it cost 50k with every other feature on board (like the n8) ~_^
[deleted post]snap dragon 1ghz has to take care of the UI smoothness and process programs IN THE SAME time
the 680mhz in the N8 only has to process programs... not to mention that the Symbain is already a lighter OS... 680mhz isnt slow either... ontop of all of that, you can overclock it to 840mhz easy.. using patches or maybe new firmwares by Nokia..
N8= more flexibility
think of it guys, n8 rules now with all this features, but think more, what will nokia even have a year to go??
Mark, 04 Jun 2010You are right, but the fact remains this phone is getting a lot of attention, from all sides, ... moretotally agree with u... i mean i, myself, would like to get my hand on this nokia n8...
saving my money for it... :D

Its the most buzz around an Nokia device in a long time. In itself, a feat.
at which resolution does the nokia n8 videos are? i mean the one shot with the cam...
and one more thing the usb otg it's not the first phone, one of my friends used to have some cheap Chinese made phone wich u can directly stick the usb in it.. he might still have it somewhere i'll try to at least...

I think the interest and the public perception is higher for the N8.
android is not the best yet.u can look into every android phone in gsmarena and u will find it the fact that android mobile phone doesnt support TV-OUT.
and it is very rare to find one with radio,or FM transm
TV-out is HW not OS.u cant fix it with update or later future OS.
so android phone is not the best yet.
the X10 tom very adore comes with no TV-OUT and radio.
if u want to make it work with tv u will have to buy another device like the bluetooth media sharing and it will cost u around $100.
N8 is not a highend phone from nokia its target for the people who willing to spend $350 - $450 for a phone.and if u can see the posibility for using this device as an all around device than it will be gud 4 u.
X10 or samsung GS is highend device,N8 is not.until now nokia still dont have any highend device for touchphone arena.
N8 will battle with samsung wave.
so it is not fair to compare X10 with N8.
the 1200 battery is enough,bcause N8 using amoled screen so it will save u some juice than the X10 TFT screen.dont forget that N8 have GPU so the CPU will not stress out to run the phone.
tom X10 may be have a better GPU but it will be useless if u can't plug it into TV or projector for presentation.
or u tom prefere to have a presentation using ur 4inch screen?
so until today im still thinking that N8 will be the best buy,dont worry bout speed u can be sure it is fast cause N8 capable to handle 15apps open.
sym 3 have swapfile system like windows virtual memory.
after many research im not really interesting with other phone this year.but N8 sure to pack alot of stuff and when nokia decided the N8 will sell for 370+tax it is feel fair enough for my wallet.
-tvout will make ur phone a walking home teater
-dolby sound?just plugin to ur homesound system
-a ready device for presentation at office anytime
-yes u still have that old radio so u can update news on the street around u.
-1200mh battery its oke u have amoled screen not the TFT hungry of battery juice.
-its a capasitive touchscreen but it has support for handwriting recognition,so it has a cap stylus,i think we can still be able to draw just like in resitive handset.
-dont forget u will have USB OTG with N8.
i think with so many new features and some features that u will not found in other phone,and dont forget the price is oke for common people wallet,yes nokia N8 will sell like peanuts.
dont listen to android user they dont have TV-out or HDMI.all they can boast is bout snapdragon things.yes a fast CPU but only for 4inch screen only?
with N8 low clock CPU and 3,5inch screen u can transfer picture to big TV screen.
so compare the capability carefully before u choose ur next future phone.
dont listen to the haters club.im not really like nokia,im not SE enemy,or motorola,samsung,HTC,apple hater.
im just a common phone user.
i dont take side,because i love all gadget specially for the one that resemble MacGyver swiss knife.N8 and samsung wave is the answer.
Correction on something i said longer down here.
I said this: Have you ever heard about that the programs and games you are going to run requires a fast CPU to load?.
It should be this: Have you ever heard about that the programs and games you are going to run requires a fast CPU to load very fast?.
This is no Match against Samsung l9000 Galaxy S when it comes to spec and the functionality., SYmbian?? So Jurassic period..
And one more thing., looks like Samsung have Tablet too.,^^ read this blog.,^^

You can't say that because of the GPU the CPU in the Nokia N8 will be like a 900 MHz CPU ROFL.
Because, how in the name of jesus are the GPU gonna make your programs to start / load faster?.
That's impossible. Simple as that.
Explain that to me mister smartypants.
