Anonymous, 03 Jun 2010SB: When you were talking about Nokia N8 on Monday, everyone thought that it will be a flagshi... more"It means that Nokia is trying to change the rules of the game. They produce very cheap phones. E.g. – low end phones for India for $10, very cheap phones from 16-30 Euro, and for these phones they have huge sales. If you check the average selling price for Nokia devices, it’s getting lower and lower each quarter. Nowadays it’s 62 Euro. It means, that high end phones from Nokia are not selling very well. Nokia sees that, and they are trying to play another game. They are trying to sell more cheaper high end devices. They are trying to push more smartphones into the market. And this strategy is very clear in N8"
Whoever posted this should go and study marketing bcos its not useful in this forum.
i was very glad after seeing nokia n8 specifications....but again a have to say...nokia sucks sometime....symbian again...i'm bored with symbian...and one of the slow mobile...while there is 720p video and 12 mp camera they have given 688mghz proccessor..lol...

Bobby, 03 Jun 2010Voting is not result from Nokia haters... it's result from last N8 videos... it's really sucks... moreTrust me, the vids you have seen are all running older sw. Take a look at the speed with which the homescreen changes in this video, compared to the ones in the demo's we have seen. It is instant:
Media player loads in less than a second, with media on a connected USB. That is fast as well.
All of these proto's are running debug sw alongside the sw, and the video's of Nokia themselves were so old it still said C0 iso N8.
So try before you buy, but dont worry.
Pengait, 03 Jun 2010C1 have 3 variants C1-00 , C1-01 , C1-02 launch at the same time.
Why nokia dont launch N8-... moreDont worry, N8 with keyboard will come, lesser camera, better specs in other areas. Do realize the ARM11 can be sped up to 1 Ghz if need be via a simple firmware update.
@ Nokia fans, 03 Jun 2010All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia ... moreVoting is not result from Nokia haters... it's result from last N8 videos... it's really sucks!
slow, laggy and poor :(
i love Nokia.. but.. this is ENOUGH!
After n97 it's next "utopia" from Nokia...
Exactly like n97, N8 have slow processor and this is for me, big mistake from Nokia :(
noit, 03 Jun 2010Please give credits where it's due, THE ONLY thing i can find the x10 bettering the n8 in comp... moreYeah I am agree with u! N8 has 16gb onboard & x10 has only 1gb+8gb(provided memory card) then I think x10fans have to waste more money to buy a 16gb memory card & x10 is already overpriced :D
N8 has full flash support to web and edge class 33, x10 lacks flash support n edge class 10 :D
N8 has 12mp,x10 8mp(camera on x10 seems like just a hole created on itz backside :D
x10 is ahead only in cpu deprtment but Nokia ll overclock itz speed if it ll b slow ;)
N8 has better features than x10,x10 lacks many features n behind NOKIA :D
But the funny thing is that x10 has double price than N8 !
I ll buy 2 Nokia N8(orange n black) instead of buying x10 :D:D:D
Nokia is going in the right direction ..
C1 C2, Dual Sim phones :D way to go nokia way to go
@ Nokia fans, 03 Jun 2010All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia ... moreWhat’s gold will shine.. Gold is not bought by voting and will be owned by all.. so Nokia fans... need not to worry abt both capturing... N8 IS!! Going to be neighbor’s envy and owner’s pride...
All the Nokia haters, Samsung fanboy, isheeps, SE fanboys are voting negatively against Nokia N8. Please vote N8 10/10
and each time you vote it also vote 1/10 to Wave, Galaxy S, beam and others phone who are not superior than N8 but still due to fanboyism they are getting higher vote.
( To Nokia haters: dont need to delete my comment, if you do so I will post this comment regulary to All Nokia phone sections)
john smith, 03 Jun 2010true the N8 is not a device to last, but is any device really designed to last? Do you think a... moreagree with u. In few years time each company marketing plan also going to change. We cant predict the future.
The rule of thumb is to get a device that suite your needs. Dont entice user to buy a particular smartphone just because you think the phone is the best. It might be the best for you but for other people that phone is not suitable for them.
Life is full of choices. You can give user advise but can cant choose for them.
[deleted post]Please give credits where it's due, THE ONLY thing i can find the x10 bettering the n8 in comparing the specs between the two is the CPU and screen res while everything else the n8 trumps the x10. also i do wish the cpu of n8 was a little faster, but whos to say the n8 isn't fast? PLs wait til release to truly c how fast it really is. EVEN if it is a little slower than your x10, i'd still take the n8 over the x10 anyday for its advantages in feature. :) 1500 mAh batt on ur x10 is need to support the dated tft screen with "2x the res"
[deleted post]true the N8 is not a device to last, but is any device really designed to last? Do you think any manufacturers would design a handset with enough HW and spec for future upgrades lasting more than several yrs? They are in Business to make money...plus technology is advancing so fast that no consumer would even use a set for more than 2 or 3 yrs at most.
when is bluetooth 4.0 going to be in the market??
i think 2011 devices going to use bluetooth 4.0.
C1 have 3 variants C1-00 , C1-01 , C1-02 launch at the same time.
Why nokia dont launch N8-00, N8-01, N8-02
N8-01 should have qwerty keyboard and 512bm ram.
N8-02 should run symbian^4, 512mb Ram, ARM11 880mhz
this is sure a very good phone to buy and i confirm tat this phone can talk up to 4 hours more and the phone more stable than any phone i already see the real model and tested it
[deleted post]just because bluetooth 3.0 isn't supported on many devices right now doesn't mean nokia shouldn't implement it. if only every manufacture think like you, technology would probly regress back to the stone age. You have to walk before you can run--nokia --->leader not follower. While sometime nokia maybe slower to implement a feature than other manufacturers, what they do, they do it right. No use having a feature that full of bug and don't work correctly...
Some people must have stayed up all night arguing. I just went through the X10 specs and it still has tft 65k colours. In fact this is a waste of time.
The X10 looses in every department except with the cpu.
Yet you have someone here arguing its case.
That's like me getting a laptop with 1998 features but just upgrading the cpu to core i7. (mind you this is not possible in real life due to the sockets but you get what i mean.) and saying its better than a laptop someone bought today with a core i5 which has all luxury features. This is dumb dumb dumb. Its as simple as.
