5800xm_user, 01 Jun 2010There is actually a large possibility of Symbian^4 not being available for N8. http://devel... moreHere said that symbian^3 is also made to support multicore cpu. And mind it there is also a version of Arm11 which is multicore. I think N8 is using that version.
There is actually a large possibility of Symbian^4 not being available for N8.
That link has the requirements for Symbian Operating Systems. The Low tier category basing on the info, refers to s60v2, while Mid Tier refers to s60v3 and v5. High Tier devices are divided into two, with the one requiring A8 Cortex exactly corresponding to the Symbian^3. Nokia just used an ARM 11 with 680Mhz since it has better power management features than A8.
However note that Nokia made a deal with Qualcomm to provide them with Snapdragons, and we see that the highest tier Symbian OS requires SnapDragon hardware at a minimum 720Mhz. This likely refers to Symbian^4.
Note however that Nokia has said it wants to bring smartphones to the masses, and they currently have the cheapest smartphones. From this, I would expect the low end to lower midrange (currently held by 5800, 5530 and 5230 variants) to be populated by Symbian^3 devices since it has cheaper hardware. The high midrange to high end would be populated by Symbian^4 (currently held by X6 and N97 duo) since Snapdragons are expensive, MeeGo holding the flagship, and sharing high end with Symbian^4.

Tom-Helge, 01 Jun 2010Ladies and gentlemen. Here is a good example on someone that don't know what good hardware spe... moreZOMG Tom-Heldge the N8 DOES NOT need these things!!! See, this phone's not trying to be something else! The Broadcom GPU is used and specialized for 720p vids and the N8's camera!
And besides, you want 1Ghz CPU's coupled with powerful GPU's wait for Symbian^4 to come out. Now that's where Nokia SHOULD NOT mess up.

Come on.. Get a Android device. Symbian is out. Android is the future. If n8 runs Android 2.2, with snapdragon, I will most definitely get it. I am tired of symbian because i am currently using n97 and i plan on getting an Andriod device. 12mp is useless. A phone camera would just be used when u dont have a camera with u. 5mp will be more than enough. U wan a good quality photos, get a slr. Phone cameras r dust compared to a real, good slr. Good luck;)
Anonymous, 31 May 2010And Wave have some SPECIAL options ... Wireless AP ROUTER! For me is VEEERY IMPORTANT options!... moreuhm, you can have a "Wireless AP ROUTER!" ... in Symbian^1, use Joikuspot..
there is a free version too, which is enough..
not sure if its compatible with Symbain^3 , but u get the point, no biggie..
also, wireless AP router is a very good idea, but , still, the majority of people would be using FM transmitters more often :)
Hello, I am deciding on a phone, I like the specs of the Nokia n8, but I live in Toronto, so it will never be released here that fast. I am not biased towards cellphone brands. I have used se x10, iphone 3gs, and bold 9700. I liked iphone for the apps and games. I liked x10 because of the style and bold for its full keypad. I find the dimensions on the x10 too big, so I dont like that and I dont like bold for web browsing. I find apple iphone to be the most user friendly device out of all these phones, but I dont like the specs of the iphone as compared to nokia n8. I looked at the youtube vids posted and like multi tasking from n8 and love the camera specs. Honestly, this nokia n8 has awesome specs, it can be used on all bands that is good for travelling. I just wish nokia has better eye candy(user inteface looks ugly). Some of the colours of nokia n8 look ugly, but I am still waiting to get this phone because of hw specs, but if a a better phone will come out soon then I will get that instead of n8.
kevinaux, 01 Jun 2010Did anyone notice that Meego is now available for download for netbooks and N900. Niraj, thats... moreNot just 3 OS almost every OS can be installed on N900. WebOS, OSx, Android, Meego all has been successfully ported on N900. Its a true mobile Computer..

Check this out. They are talking about N8 XpressMusic that looks like a N81.
If SE produce another android phone, X10 will be forgotten even if it have life time support.
X10 user may sell X10 to but SE New Android Phone.
Thats the way of life, ppl will buy new ver and forget the old version.
Unless you want to keep you X10(android 1.6) for future value(antic items).
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2010**correction LOL. if i want maemo 5 i get N900. if i want Symbian^1 i get 5800,X6,N97mini. ... moreur right my friend....i hope our friend tommy also understands it as well....or sony gonna launch life time support for him too....hehehehe
if i want maemo 5 i get N900.
if i want Symbian^1 i get 5800,X6,N97mini.
If i want symbian^3 i get N8.
if i want 800X480 screen resolution i get N900.
if i want 12mp with 720p video rec. i get N8.
if i want 5mp good camera phone i get N82 or N95.
if i want capacitive touch screen i get X6 or N8.
if i want business phone i get n72.
if i want low budget XM with touch i get 5800 or 5235.
if i want multi feat. phone at lowest price i get C5.
if i want ovi maps i need nokia phones.
My point is nokia is full of choice and value for money.
U can easily change your phone if nokia produce a new better phone. Who needs a phone that have lifetime support when the phone can die before you did. If the phone have lifetime warranty it's a different story.
