I was hoping to buy this phone.. but until I this phone is using the same N97 CPU, it only increase from 433 to 680mhz. In addition, this phone does not have duo core process like N900 (cpu + gpu). It run ok in 3D process b/c of OPENGL 2.0, no Dedicate Video Graphic.
That explain why it is cheap, also confirm with Nokia people that they want to keep this phone cheap..
Cheap= Low CPU + No Dedicate 3D graphic.
I was hoping to have the 12 mpx hd phone camera. This is already dissappoint me. Suck Big Time

Can i ask if n8 has a built in equaliser to its music player? And a visualisation like album art and animated spectrum bars?
Thanks a lot bro... And keep it up...

T... moreI really like Nokia and I appreciate the effort put to make N97 (I have one), but I feel the battery on the N98 is quite small. I would prefer the same battery capacity that is on the N97.
It is very silly of nokia not to put gpu in n97! N97 users can have discount to upgradeto n8?

Anonymous, 14 May 2010Hello , is the audio quality of Nokia N8 better than that of Nokia 5800??? Please reply.... :DNo. I think 5800 is a bit better than N8 with music...at least the bass provided by 5800 is much realistic. And mind u 5800 has stereo loud speaker while this has mono.
Waiting for nokia phone which will be a combination of N97/C6(design) and N8(features)!
Bong, 14 May 2010Hi, thank you for the post. So it seems the N8 will experience some lag when opening 4-6 apps... more@Bong...actually the unit I used is quite close to the retail unit in hardware respect but only with a incomplete OS. Anyways, the video watching is cool...pretty much what you'll expect from an AMOLED screen but I guess the response time is a bit better in Samsung's screens. The fast motion movies look a bit blurry in N8 (Not much though). And the contrast could've been better. It'll take Nokia a while to perfect their AMOLED screen to 2nd gen (Samsung Omnia hd, jet, pixon12 use 2nd gen and google nexus one, Nokia N85,N86 use 1st gen like N8 and Samsung wave,beam,galaxy S use 3rd gen Super AMOLED which even beats my omnia HD and other 2nd gen by miles).
It will be so problematic while typing on this phone,especially while using nimbuzz :D,I guess this phone is not for me,C6 have great design but poor features while N8 is with great specs and poor design
Anonymous, 14 May 2010is this better than the N900?no.
N900 (a.k.a N9-00) will only be supersede by N9-01.
nokia will reserve the N9 for Meego/Maemo.
hopefully it will have a E9 twins for Meego.
so we will have 1 with QWERTY and the other device with no QWERTY.
please note that nokia won't produce device with 0 (such as N0) and 4 (such as C4).
So for each series there would only be 8 device.
AMANITA, 14 May 2010let's hope that n98 will be capacitive touchscreen with qwerty and rich in specs like n8there won't be n98
the only phone that higher than n8 will be N9, E9, C9, X9
let's hope that n98 will be capacitive touchscreen with qwerty and rich in specs like n8

So it seems the N8 will experience some lag when opening 4-6 apps. I am curious about the performance of N8's video capturing under low light condition. And how is the experience when viewing video through the phone's screen. Anyway, since this is a prototype, then we can expect the actual retail unit to be much better right, since there is still 1 months time before the release. =D
