NOKLA, 12 May 2010N8 is third grade mobile. may be great for others who are still using a S40 based mobile or ol... moreWow.. they're releasing HD4 before HD3!! You seem to know too much, even more than HTC themselves know!
Yes, HTC have said they're going to 1080p .. but who said it would be this July, or even this year?! In the news link you put HTC themselves said 1080p would be available 2nd quarter next year .. that's 2011!
And I don't think Snapdragon can do 1080p decoding!!
And and 2400mAh battery? Tell me what would that phone measure, if it would then be fit with the term 'phone'!
I would have bought this phone, but after the N97, Symbian leaves me cold. Symbian feels tired, and dated, and there is a distinct lack of apps available, like Last.fm, Layar, Shazam, Sports Tracker has only just been released for the N97, widgets that are fixed height.
Their phones don't even support DivX playback natively.
There is one thing Nokia how to do, hardware. Apart from the screen with its low resolution, 16 Gig onboard, 12 MP Camera, Xenon Flash, FM Transmitter, FM Radio, Wireless b/g/n, HDMI Out. It has features which most Android phones can only dream of.
Sadly I don't see enough changes in Symbian^3 for me to get excited about. The biggest thing they have, is being able to move icons around the screen and multiple home pages. There is no pictures of the messaging interface which on the N97 was just S60 with a touch interface tagged on.
I've therefore ordered the Samsung Galaxy S, which doesn't have a flash and only 5MP but can do DivX and HD recording.
I think if Nokia could release this as an Android device, take up of this would be even higher.
It's about time Nokia let go of Symbian.
Anonymous, 12 May 2010truth be told, if u havnt researched enough to know S^3 is an under the hood job more than fac... morei cant follow your replies anymore! . Thats if you are the same anom ..! We will have to agree to dissagree ( if u can understand that )
Oh.. and before you think I am a Nokia basher.. I am not. I love Nokia and all of my phones are Nokia's (but I have tried phones from other brands). Higher screen resolution means less scrolling when browsing the internet and what is one of the main points of getting a touchscreen?
Looking at the specifications, this seems like technically a perfect mobile, but then I wonder why it only will have a screen resolution of 360x640... maybe if I would buy a new touch screen right now, it would still be acceptable, but even now 640x800 is a resolution that you would expect from a high end phone. I don't like Apple, but when I read that the upcoming Iphone will have an even higher resolution, I can't imagine buying a phone with such a 'low' resolution as the N8 by the time it comes to the market in Q3 :-(
Good news from Nokia they have realised at last that there sales are falling an getting outshined in the mobile market in 2010 so there is going to a Big Shake Up at Nokia an change the strategy towards releasing more High-Tech mobiles instead of commiting themselves to Services to Much,Hope now Nokia do start what they used to do ,bring more advanced mobiles than the others,because after the N95 boom they seem to more bothered gaining the lead in the Mid-Range mobiles market,as SAmsung an Sony Ericsson releasing the high tech camera mobiles,so hope Nokia do change there ideas an shock the others again like they use to
3D games look very good! The second one runs on QT
i just bought the n8 from europe because im a techee and there is no other in comparison hands down period dot com........
N8 is third grade mobile. may be great for others who are still using a S40 based mobile or old age Symbian mobile.
HTC HD2 is way ahead of this crap. HTC's new rockstar going to rock the world within few weeks. HTC HD4 going to be launched in july. many people may have read the news in GSMArena itself.
its the new HTC with 12 MP variable aperture camera with Xenon flash, LED video light, full HD(1080p) recording with active lens cover, HDMI port, 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor, 512 MB RAM, 32 GB internal, latest windows operating system, Li-PO 2400 mAh battery, etc. are some noteworthy features. may be Nokia manages to launch there flagship phone N98 in july. lets wait & watch....
