[deleted post]If you watch the history of Nokia, they have a tendency to introduce their line up of future gadgets sometimes even 6 months before it is actually launched. Whereas other companies like HTC, SE, Samsung, Blackberry do introduce their future plans with specs about 2 months before the launch...So N8 is on the net...you can see it...its scheduled for a 3rd Quarter launch. I assume before N8 is launched you will be able to witness various other gadgets from other companies and that will definitely assist you in making a final decession. So as I said Nokia has always followed its competitors since last 3 years time. By the time N8 will hit the shelves you will see others already in market or on the edge to be available. Last year Nokia has lost a major market share and it seems this year they will still keep the trend...I feel sorry for them but they themselves are to be blamed...

they are trying to make a balance! im sure they will figure it out but i hope they make it support that :P it gonna be awsome
Niraj, 02 Jun 2010This forum is going ridiculous, dont you think. By the way I dont know about xvid but as usual... moreyehaa! i totaly agree lool it really hot here :P Mobile World War 1 is going to start rofl!
well Divx and Xvid for me means support Avi format!
just cant wait for the release date .. ugh when it will be announced i want Nokia to confirm it :P

First both Vivaz+Satio cant compete N8 on specs. First see both specs and then see.
Second N900 also had divx xvid player but Nokia symbian handsets dont have them. Maybe due to absence of dedicated graphics chip.. By the way Core player and julyPlayer can play divx/xvid videos properly but since Nokia symbian^1 dont have gpu so they cant run properly. Hope you get my answer.
Niraj, 02 Jun 2010This forum is going ridiculous, dont you think. By the way I dont know about xvid but as usual... moreBlackberry, Samsung has enabled their handsets to play Divx and Xvid videos out of box since last 18 months, here Nokia after 18 months still not being able to support these formats and people who use symbian gadgets has to download 3rd party software to be able to play these formats and that too with choppy video output in frozen frames sometimes. Nokia is the world leader after all
Anis, 02 Jun 2010mmm anyone know if it will support DivX / XviD ??This forum is going ridiculous, dont you think. By the way I dont know about xvid but as usual you know many people in the globle had N8 for testing. According to them N8 can play divx with the pre release firmware. I have also asked this question to Nokia Camera guru Damian Dinning and he said " we cant say in this stage".
Anis, 02 Jun 2010mmm anyone know if it will support DivX / XviD ??It can support it. Some pre-production models come with it but Nokia have stated they have not decided if they would include it in the final release. Perhaps its not a question of whether it can or not for them but rather should or otherwise as they consider cost of licensing.
[deleted post]Dude, since you had to compare the specs of one Nokia N8 with so many different devices, does that not tell you why N8 has so many followers. Now I ask you, tell me one device from any other maker that comes close to the full feature list of the N8. And while you are at it, please do add what mobile you think is the best at the moment if one does decide to buy a mobile device now instead of waiting for future and its marvels.
[deleted post]Now I think I should come up, and lets talk with real facts..
My first answer will be for Mr. Tom-Helge..
Mr Tom Helge, the answer of your arguement "will N8 is able to get symbian^4 or not" is actually hidden in your own posts.
You said that Android dont need fast processer.. It can even run on your Xperia X2 right.. Then for your kind information symbian is always light compare to Android.. I have searched the minimum requirement of both symbian^3 and symbian^4 and the answer is both have same hardware requirement.. Symbian^4 will also run heavily on 3d Graphics accelerator. Which N8 have. Second real fact: the core of snapdragon is also 'weak' Arm 11 cpu which is safely overclocked to 1ghz.
And now lets see some other facts. Mr. Tom, cpu wise Satio and Vivaz can also be upgraded to symbian^3.. right. Then why dont SE promise to upgrade them with symbian^3. Since I think they also got 'life time support'.?
Answer is simple, to install or boot new OS on phone, Capacity of ROM is more important than cpu. Nokia is officially mention that the ROM of N8 is 512 which is more than enough to install any OS on it. Due to this capacity you can even install Android, Web OS etc on N8. So ROM wise N8 also qualify to Symbian^4.
So it is not impossible to upgrade N8 with symbian^4. But still its depend on Nokia if they will upgrade it or not. But since N8 is Nokia's camera flagship so probably they will upgrade it with symbian^4. Not upgrading N8 with symbian^4 means loosing the faith from customers. If Nokia will not upgrade N8 with symbian^4 means they will loose more and more market share. Nokia is not so stupid to let their value able customers to go to other brands since they already losts many customers.
So Mr. Tom-Helge dont post any stupid post about it without answering me.
In my second post I will give Answer to Mr. Rajesh. But currently I'm busy I will back soon.
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010Nokia has always been slow in acheiving what others have achieved ages ago. 12 mpx camera was ... moreDon't bother about the crappy(in your own eyes) n8.Its not so important if you don't buy it.
Tom-Helge, 02 Jun 2010And the other reason games on the Nokia N8 will runs so much better than XPERIA X10, is becaus... morelet say that ur x10 screen require 2x the cpu because the screen res is double...exactly the reason y it needs 1gz cpu as oppose to the n8, n by the way does game really look crappy to u on iphone running at 320x480? i think u need to have ur eyes checked if u say yes.
Great phone and miles better than the old N97 that i dumped into the bin yesterday. at least now I have a phone that can be operated without fear of it freezing up or running applications half-way...
[deleted post]Nokia has always been slow in acheiving what others have achieved ages ago. 12 mpx camera was introduced 9 months ago in SE Satio and Samsung PIXON 12. Now we are looking at 12 mpx camera in Nokia N8. ( We dont even know exact date of launch of N8 ) Late by ages already. SE Vivaz has been launched 3 months ago with high speed 720 mhz processor with SGX graphic and HD recording...And mind you all both these handsets are using Symbian OS...Nokia is still sleeping. Now we talk about OTG...to many this is a new concept...but open eyes...this gimmick was introduced by O2 flame in the year 2007 ( i.e 3 years ago ) but failed because transfer of data via USB consumes enormous CPU speed and it munches the battery and the gadget tends to drain the battery power in minutes. Mind you N8 comes with only 1200 mAH battery ( a big drawback ). Now you Nokia fans, tell me which Nokia handset at the moment is able to beat SATIO and VIVAZ in specifications...Again, N8 is not even launched yet...do you people think other companies are now closed and not even working on new things...by the time you will have N8 in your hand, you will see a dozen of new gadgets with higher specs and better features...WAKE UP AND THINK...or if you cant do that than N8 is for you guys and made specially for you guys...the term is PEOPLE
[deleted post]Nevermind X10 eventually will get all the features support in the future os. But X10 dont have the hardware to support it LOL.
Generally speaking there isn't a decent phone out there at the moment that can do everything people want. The ideal handset in my opinion is one that comes with a decent processor with enough memory to back it up, enough space for all your pics/music/movies etc... a decent OS (i.e. Android) and a decent camera (i.e. 8MP-12MP) with a good lens but will we ever get such a thing? Probably at some point but for right now I reckon its too expensive for phone manufacturers to do that and make a decent amount of money on it at the same time!
A new snap-dragon processor at 1.2ghz and android 2.2 at the helm, decent graphics and a 12MP camera should do the trick, at least for now!
Bottom line is, the gadget hungry will never be satisfied as they will always want something bigger and better!
people that are not so happy and hunt and struggle to get more than what was thrown in their way will never be satisfied*. They think they are wise but they are not wise.
They keep complaining about every damn thing. They think that their idea is the best. When the idea is wrong what they do is just stick their tongue out cant hear any words from their mouth.
If nokia cant satisfied your needs there are many brands out there u can choose.
We have freedom to choose.
Nokia is full of choice. From crap to good phone.
** correction again LOL
[deleted post]simply , well said my friend :).

se's good nokias good htc good samsung etc apple the only one thats crap!
