Don't judge a book by its cover. e.g my $15,000 15 yr old 300zx will spank yr brand new corvette anyday. wait for the release then say $hit
nokia pls pls change the N8 screen resolution! motorola MILESTONE 3.7" Screen with hight resolution is much more better than nokia N8 3.5" SCREEN0only 0.2" different but screen resolution dammn BIG different
Samsung OMNIA HD2 M8920 is coming with 4 inches super amoled display, 12mp camera with xenon flash, 1280 x 720 pixels video recording and symbiun^3 processor.
Deep space bar, 19 May 2010They can easily boost the clockspeed like what they did on the 5800 since it'still the ARM 11 ... moreyeap.. Nokia should by now standardised ARM 11 to 600mhz for 5800,C6,N97 and N97 mini. although i think its bad for the battery life.
Deep space bar, 19 May 2010Maybe you can with a qt application or an add on since they both use microUSB portI dont understand what is use of ROM in this phone..? Is it a indication that this phone will be upgraded to symbian^4..?

Nokia come on RELEASE IT ALREADY!!! I can't stop coming back and forth just to look at the pictures OF THE N8!!
I think it will be available before August. Possibly July..
And as a smartphone, few smartphones out there can actually do more in terms of functionality. It is a very capable device!!!

Just another "nice to have", in addition to the other blown up specs.
I look forward to connect my 500gig WD Passport to the future Meego flagship and watch HD .MKV movies on it! I hope for the tweens that N8 can do this too, but i doubt it will be a divine joy and glory haleluja to do so, and anyway the display is not that high resolution to really enjoy HD on it.
kkkabirkkk, 19 May 2010and one more thing guys how far can usb-otg go? may be it can use keyboards, mouse, joysticks... moreSome one will fore sure add or make a hack or app that will allow bluetooth keyboard and mouse or wireless since OTG connector port is there
celladik, 19 May 2010I agreed with you mate the lighter the OS the lower power consumption at the same time, n0 nee... moreThey can easily boost the clockspeed like what they did on the 5800 since it'still the ARM 11 achitect they can boost the clockspeed to where it needs to be if 680mhz is not fast enough but it should be done to all touchscreens as a massive firmare update up to 580mhz or 600mhz cause look how smooth the e72 runs on 600mhz
But stil lacks the 256ram it needs
But the have added pure ROM to this since the added GPU it should be alittle heavier then s60 5th but still perform nicely since gpu and cpu will be working together
and one more thing guys how far can usb-otg go? may be it can use keyboards, mouse, joysticks.....gaming would be great
the hardware specification is great especially the usb-OTG (it's been years since i wanted this to be on a phone), and with 12mp cam and hd recording, it's truly now more than just a mobile computer, it's a still cam, hd recorder and a netbook(thanks to usb-otg)...but still it's better to wait for meego i guess, nokia is certainly gonna bring everything on it's meego device as well and this has much more potential than symbian..
and one more thing i disliked about this is the low resoultion of the screen, com'on you're giving 12mp cam and 720p hd recording and just 640 by 360 screen..that's way too low, it's should have been at least 800 by 480 or rather 960 by 640 (as rumored for iphone 4g) would justify the needs...
