You people compare apples with pears :-) Android is Android and Symbian is Symbian ! At the moment Symbian outsell Android by 3:1 if not more. Actually Symbian is for the cellphones what windows is for pc's. And the N8 is Symbians BOSS ! I love Symbian too and honestly, I don't care which phone is better if is not Symbian ! ! ! The people are voting with their wallets and not their mouths like some of you do :-)

Ha ha ha ha all this arguing is pointless until you get ur hands on the n8. Its specs on paper might be good to some an bad to others(Tom H)This reminds me of Top Gear. A car can have all the specs but unless the stig tests it u never really know how good it is.
wow.. very nice phone.. if i have this phone, i'll stop being a jejemon.. jejeje

But so can Windows 7 do to.
So you point is?.
N8 rules :-) When can I buy this phone? I have heard it is going to cost below 400 Euro. Why is so cheap? Will Nokia bring a better spec phone? Usually top end phones cost 600+ and not 400-
Scorpion, 02 Jun 2010The latest known hardware requirements for Android are:
• 32MB RAM
• 200MHz Online Processor... moreI've been going through some of the previous posts and stumbled on a coupe that I feel like rebutting. First of all, this little nugget from Scorpion, the one where you pointed out the minimum requirements for Android machines. What, did you like googled "Android minimum requirements" and just posted from which ever site you stumbled on.
Please read what you post mate otherwise its going to be quite useless. Did you notice the date of that post (03-01-2008) and the comment that this was the requirement in November the year before.
I too googled and found this site, also from 2008.
So tell me, still think 2.2 will run on your "latest" spec?
Firmware Updates, 03 Jun 2010I am Software developer myself and I will tell you how bug fixing works. We introduce new bugs... moreThat was the problem with low c-disk space on nokia n97,,all the patches they kepy applying could only go on the c-disk not the rom..The c space was limited and when they thru out n-gage and other big MB downloads as updates they went on c as well leaving less space..This hyper x person whos been chucking out new firmwares for the samsung i8910 hd found an extra 60MB of free c-dick space by getting rid of bulk that samsung had built in ..What i cant understand is that these devices are expensive so why not chuck in more RAM for starters and increase the ROM leaving more c-disk space it cant cost that much more on top of whar is already an expensive device??
First i will say that i agre to most of what you said Tom.
Yup, like i said, Nokia N8 will be a good device for what that phone is and for that that device can do.
But the CPU will still be the bottleneck for future OS updates, like getting a totally new OS for example.
The Nokia N8 users should really hope that the hardware specs that's needed for Symbian ^4 will be so low that Nokia N8 can run it.
And the link someone posted here earlier that is: http://www.unwiredview.com/2010/05/03/interview-with-eldar-murtazin-part-1-nokia-n8-leak-market-prospects-and-symbian3/
That pretty much sums it up pretty well.

One of the best site for MOBILE REVIEW.
If review is available on Mobile review as well as GSMARENA, I would trust Mobile Review site.

the guy is knowledgeable, but his assessment of the n8 was based on a proto and false expectations.
why do you not reason yourself, instead of copying someone elses opinions?
Dev, 03 Jun 2010SHALL run absolutely smooth without a doubt! Unofficial videos out till now are in agreement t... moreI am Software developer myself and I will tell you how bug fixing works. We introduce new bugs. Not necessarily though.
Now every bug that we need to fix, we need to put some more IF conditions (sometimes remove but that’s very rare), which ultimately is a load on processing because for normal operation, it needs to go through multiple checks.
Now I have never believed on firmware updates or for that matter service packs for OS.
They may be fixing bugs but just check out all the JUNK they leave on your PC.
Fresh OS installation is much better than all these updates. I always believe that the device released from Company should be able to handle all the issues and firmware updates should be only there to introduce new functionalities and not bug fixing.
SB: When you were talking about Nokia N8 on Monday, everyone thought that it will be a flagship device. With a flagship like pricetag of 500-550 Euro. But now as N8 was announced, we see that Nokia is not positioning it as a top of the line flagship. It’s a mid-market/mid-tier device, for a price of 370 Euros.
1. No, it’s top of the their line, actually. Because Nokia missed this market and nowadays they are trying to change price segments. For example, yesterday, Nokia cut a price of almost all of it’s product line. And it was a very good proposition for the market. For one reason – nowadays Nokia has to compete with a lot of Android devices – and stay competitive. And Nokia brand is not as strong as it was just a few years ago.
2. For Nokia N8, as far as I know, they’ve dropped it’s price at the last moment. It’s my assumption, because the price had to be between X6 and between what N97 price was at launch. There will be very few models with higher price this year from Nokia. And if we are talking about N8 – it totally is Nokia flagship, because no other product (except for one – the same device version, with keyboard), will have higher price.
3. 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.
4. Later this year Nokia will start adding the service “Comes with Music” for free, with some handsets. It means that nowadays this service is not working. People are not buying this service, people are not buying X6, X3 and other phones with CWM. So yes, Nokia is trying to push the prices lower, and N8 is one of the first examples of that, for this year.
