Too bad the altek showed up to spoil the party. But the N8 is the real deal.
Awesome it has an FM Transmitter, the only reason I would by one over an iPhone :)
peace keeper, 28 May 2010symbian world.. What you posting links on the new ovi maps for? Everyone knows about it alread... morein most cases b4 a phone is launch ppl will complain after its launched ppl will still complain. then they complained about their favourite phone even after they bought it.even if their favourite phone is fantastic they still complained about other phone. of course a better word for complain is COMMENT. pitty these complainers their life is never in peace. just choose,compare,read, patiently b4 deciding to buy. dont simply jump into conclusion to COMMENT/buy.

peace keeper, 28 May 2010symbian world.. What you posting links on the new ovi maps for? Everyone knows about it alread... moreGood man i like the way you think
And that's why i'm still a loyal nokia user
They look after their users/customers
I've always came back to nokia since 2005
And i've always enjoyed every device and s60
And now maemo and soon to be symbi3n
This or the Samsung i8920 Omnia HD2? I have the i8910 Omnia HD because it's better than the N97... Fact.
But the N8 vs The Omnia HD2 could be very very close. We'll have to wait to see what hardware the Omnia HD2 will be packing. The N8 is supposidly 244% faster than the N97 but only 90% faster than the Omnia HD. So does that mean like the N97 vs Omnia HD the Omnia HD2 will beat the N8. Both will be on Symbian^3...
symbian world.. What you posting links on the new ovi maps for? Everyone knows about it already and most have it, i got it the morning it was released thanks to my software updater, which nokia are so kind to have on every new smartphone for a while now, no links are needed since nokia keep there users up to speed with the latest, free software updates are a norm from them and all over the air, unlike most companies out there, nokia have the greatest mobile software in the world and there success is proof. I just updated my 6710 navigators firmware today (released yesterday) and all the upgrades are just what i needed, performance is improved drastically , accelerometer senser sharper than ever , gps improved , bug fix in one of the standby views , ovi sync application added , ovi contacts update and so much more. And its all for free, out of the goodness of their heart, why? Coz they care about customer opinion. All you people dissing nokia ask yourselves this..what does your manufacturer give you thats free? Free apps? Free maps? Free voice guidance? Free updater over the air? Awesome content in box? Massive range of styles of phones? Come on people most samsung and blackberry phones look the same, same software on most , same interface over and over again, and apple? Apple who? While they sleep nokia is taking back whats rightfully theirs? Competition? I'd rather there be no competition coz these other people are just fooling customers with gimiks and false marketing.. Lg chatter box springs to mind.. Now that phone is being sold second hand everywhere coz people didn't like it after they bought it.. Just get a nokia. Problem solved, i hope gsm don't block this message coz of my dissing of other brands but this is freedom of speech and i have a point here, take time to read and think twice before you eye out the next samsung touch
sshhh... people please chill! The phone hasn't even been released yet!!
You are correct but not as big a build up as n95 that was a big breakthru but as N8 gets nearer the tension is building..This will sell as good as 5800 i think due to nokia software update promises, bug fixes ,price and sheer raw specification..
i have 160 GBP up to now so i am half way there ..the N8 reminds me of the exciting build the n95 had with truly ultra spec,
Tom-Helge, 27 May 2010320 dollar?, what dream world are you in?.
I would rather say it cost 320 dollar before all... moreTom,
I believe u don't understand the difference between dollar and pounds.
Its 370 EURO on official Nokia N series Blog which equals roughly 320 pounds.
Please get away from N8 page and stick on to X10. This is N8 page and don't advertise your X10 here. We had enough of that CRAP.
its only about 460$ the nokia N8 will be a big hit on the nokia technology mobilephone to me i like it more the iPhone
Anonymous, 27 May 2010Can any1 tell me where is the official information about N8 CPU and GPU? All I have seen is ar... moreSorry no official info about N8 Gpu is available. But it is rumored as Broadcom bcm2727 gpu. Some reasons for this:
1) Broadcom bcm2727 gpu is specially made to take pictures from 12 mp camera and shoot 720p videos - Yes N8 can do this
2) Bcm2727 gpu supports (or allow) h.264 codec video to shoot from device - Yes N8 also record videos in this format
3) Broadcom is also member of Symbian Organization. If you search some pages of Symbian.org you will find that s^3 is specially built to support broadcom's gpu.
4) Only broadcom's gpu is able to provide such specs sheets on N8.
So its seems clear that this phone probably have bcm2727 gpu on it.
expencive my ass.i payed 430e on my N86 and the price when it apeared was480e.the N8 is 370 without taxes.iven with taxes it should be cheaper than my N86:(now if it would be cheaper that will be very painfull
