Different from the latest generation symbian available now (Symbian^1) that's used in a few nokia's touch model, from the first 5800, untill, the latest C6. That merely a Symbian S60v3 that's changed to used on a touch screen device.
Symbian^3, from what I read (few people has tried it, although it's still in a developing stage) is more stable and more intuitive with more customization option available.
So, you cant say a thing until you experienced the Symbian^3 for yourself arent you??
Some powerful hardware on this phone, but I am sorry but Symbian is the poorest of all the touch screen OS's. Until Symbian improves or is replaced (by something better than maemo) then I will not purchase another Nokia phone. Shame, because I have always thought their camera's were the best of any mobile device.
Anonymous, 17 May 2010agree with u, N8 is like 5800, for mid range user and also for testing purpose. hopefully they... moreAgree too. And, it feels like Nokia in entering a popularity contest with N8, competing with nonsense phones from Samsung. A real Tween handset, where the focus is on POPULAR specs, the things that tweens think is a must-have, not coz they need it, but coz others have it. Things that are nice to have, but not really important or even very useful, like multitouch, its a gimmick that experienced cellfone know isnt all that useful, if at all. And a super-megapix where 99% of us cant tell the difference from a 3 year old N82 photo. All these high specs in narrow areas, and still it cant do what N900 can.
I do however agree that its a 12mpix multitouch done right, it shows Samsung and other jalla-manufacturers how to make good overblown specs in non-important areas, its just that there are more important things a next-gen smartphone should do, N900 can do them but not this one?
ANd... If nokia want popularity test with tasteless manufacturers then why didnt they make a display that matches them? Because high res display is one of the areas where high spec is more than a tween factor.
android_king, 17 May 2010u should know that symbian^3 is not what u will be anticipating, infact symbian^3 is nothing b... moreagree with u, N8 is like 5800, for mid range user and also for testing purpose. hopefully they will release symbian^4 by 4Q 2010 and N8 can be upgrade to symbian^4 or else its just a waste.
its a bonus if meego device launch by 3Q and store start selling by 4Q,
still can't wait for C6,N8 to be release. Nokia will dominate the mid range market once again. For high end device lets wait for 4Q or next year LOL.

Great functionality from S60 v3 and v5 combined with eye cand... moreu should know that symbian^3 is not what u will be anticipating, infact symbian^3 is nothing but symbian^1 only with multitouch and extended homescreens, Nokias future will be the symbian^4 and maemo 6 and Meego, infact symbian^3 is what symbian^1 should be..
i hope the mono speaker can be like their first xpress music device the nokia3250(king of nokia sound ever)
[deleted post]its not launched anywhere, will be launched in 3rd quarter this year
I had nokia n73 and it still alive! i had used it more than THREE YEARS! my next phone always be NOKIA!
Yes s3 combine the best of good things of its competitors. Well done nokia.
S^3 will be best of both worlds. Great functionality from S60 v3 and v5 combined with eye candy UI like the iphone, and touch friendly like Android and iPhone and WinMo with sense
