i hope there is n8 mini with 3.2 " screen, 5 mp xenon, 8g storage, price to be euro 270
I think Nokia should introduce this mobile with inbuilt 32 GB memory so it will have massive storage of 64 GB.
truth be told, if u havnt researched enough to know S^3 is an under the hood job more than facia i.e. UI, ur comments here become moot. secondly, okp, what was ur point if not to compare to non-released phones and dog pro-hardware users as opposed to the dogma over at Apple (and urs) with its Form over Function paradigm. And for those comparing this to the N95...jus dont..that was a top-tier phone, this, if u cant tell by its price point, isnt...its meant for people who want VALUE FOR MONEY...arguments to the contrary are opinions, and urs to keep, not to dictate on others and call them ignorant because of it...we know the iphone's good..we jus want more

If you have a mobile company, you don't add a 1GHz processor for the sake of adding one. We yet to see the performance of the OS on them.
Yes, the screen resolution should have been pumped up.
The glass over the lens is said by Nokia to be scratch resistant to protect the lens, they said they could have put a protecting cover but that would make it about 3mm thicker, and they also are saying applications would need to use camera faster, so you don't need every time to open the lens cover. And actually it does have LED flash for video recording. It doesn't have variable aperture but it performs almost equally to say N86 in low-light conditions thanks to the more sensitive sensor and in bright light, it uses Neutral Density filter that slides into the optics automatically when the light exceeds a certain threshold.

Good review from * Anonymous..
we need comparison comments like this. not cursing @ bashing @ trolling. tq.
This phone is not putting anything new on the table.Symbian^3 is just a polished version of Symbian^1(aka S60 rel.5).These features should have been present in first place in Symbian^1.
The muli-touch,Kinetic scrolling that has been added recently is nothing of an innonvation.Its present in the Iphone since 2007 and more recently on features phones and Android.
The screen resolution is just nHD(640*360),where its competitors are using Super Amoled screens with atleast WVGA(800*480) or better resolutions;"Iphone HD"(960*640).
The amout of RAM is insufficient at 256MB for a smart phone.Also it is using an already outdated ARM processor clocked at 680MHz where competitors are using Snapdragon(1Ghz or better) powered handsets.
This is supposed to be a camera phone,but it does not have type of lens protection,nor any LED for serving as video light.Yhe camera of Samsung Pixon 12 and Nokia N86 8MP are more advanced as they uses variable aperture along with 28mm wide angled lens although it does have wide angled lens.
So in conclusion,I can say that this phone may not have the same hype that the N95 0r Iphone generated when they launched in the market.Several features of the phone is already outdated even before its release...
Better match this:
