Tom-Helge, 21 May 2010LOL, saying ARM Cortex A8 is as fast and maybe faster than the 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU is not rig... morewell, I have check my fact before, but if maybe I got it wrong, then I'm sorry, but some of the review I've read says that an ARM Cortex A8 @600Mhz run on par with the Snapdragon @1Ghz, so I'm saying that if those A8 got overclocked to maybe 800-900Mhz, then doesnt it make them faster??
And besides, let me tell you guys something about mobile device industry, a little bit different from a desktop CPU, in mobile industry, less is more!! The more efficient you can get a phone to run at a lower clock speed, the better!! Cause like I said before, mobile device industry always struggling with a power management on their device, how to make a device have a longer battery life, but with a great performance?? Less is more.
that's why N8 is not using a 1Ghz CPU to run, cause it doesnt need it. Instead, I believe that it would run heavily on the GPU, and that way, it'll have a batter and more efficient power consumption, but with a good result.
And if there's another complain or whining about the hardware, then remember, this is a 370 Euros phone, not a 600 usd or another expensive phone. If you want to compare it with another phone, compare it in the same price range, and tell me if you can come up with a better one!!
My friend in the stone age is stil using his 3310. &seems happy. He says it can send & receive sms & it vibrates. & u ar complaining
Man, I can't wait for the N8 to be released. Hopefully it will be somewhere in between June and July. Can't wait to replace my trustworthy N82.
KID, 21 May 2010have you tried N900???
it's blazingly fast, and easily overclocked to 800-900Mhz to, with an ... moreLOL, saying ARM Cortex A8 is as fast and maybe faster than the 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU is not right.
Take a look here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/3633/apples-a4-soc-faster-than-snapdragon
Check your facts before you post.
Why do people have loyalty to a corporation producing handsets. I buy the best one I don't care who makes it. The N8 looks good and has the chops. Still if there is something better and cheaper around when it arrives I will buy that.
Zero, 21 May 2010Because it's nokia, so no matter if it's 10ghz, it will still be slow.have you tried N900???
it's blazingly fast, and easily overclocked to 800-900Mhz to, with an ARM Cortex A8.
It's default clock is at 600, and believe me, 600Mhz of ARM Cortex is at least the same if it's not faster than 1Ghz Snapdragon.
So anyway, what did you say again??
if it has minimum 3months call records,1ghz processor,512RAM,camera cover and the TV Receiver it would be the most selling mobile phone ever in this world.
Oh good news to everyone
nokia will annouce n8 with 1ghz cpu with euro 100 more , but the phone is not faster than old n8 and battery drain fast
must hav problem with their battery..hope nokia use more powerful battery
Shadow, 21 May 2010Pure copy of IPhoneIphone use nokia tech, what is yopur point?
Let me tell you who are going to buy this phone when it is released
those old nokia users
those cant afford the featureless iphone but they are smart
those cell phone users need to taste the perfect smartphone
those in developing countries, most of the nations
those who are smart
Hey, guy, I have HTC HD2 with 1GHz processor and also I have N97... The difference is incomparable, believe me.
From Symbian^3 the processor Speed (1Ghz) doesn't matter much since everything from now on will "RUN" on GPU ..
What matters most is the "GPU speed".. this thing has broadcom GPU which has 3-4 times the power of Cortex A8 used in milestone or Droid or 2 times the GPU power of 1Ghz SnapDragon.
It just shows how ignorant you are.
i dont know why some other guys here complains about processor speed about battery life about new os and bla bla bla things,all i can say is let us wait for this and try it i owned a nokia 6120 classic before with its 369mhz processor but i dont face any problems at all,you know guys we are the users so we must knew how much we can go with our devices.there is no perfect phone to match our own needs with such price tag
Looks like most of you don't know what you are saying??Symbian 3 doesn't need much Processor speed and Ram to run fast....N8 is much more than what you think it is...Dolby Digital Plus via HDMI ...bluetooth 3.0...comeon guyz...u shodnt jz hate i fone cz u hate d company....This phone is good...and all those Iphone lovers...Do you have a missed call notification or ur fone???messqage notifications??u lack all these yet u try to complete with your one-way stuffs...Please tell the truth sometimes....
