Sunil, 13 May 2010I just got my hands on one of the pre-release prototype of the phone through my brother who's ... moreCan you tell when N8 will be released in India.....
And the second thing i want to ask is that , is it true that nokia phones that come to Indian market are made in china and have in general low quality of materials being used...
Since you are using i8910 would you recommend to buy this phone considering the features and overall package....
One thing I've noticed here in this forum regarding the N8 is this: there is a very vast misunderstanding of its OS. Symbian^3 is certainly not the same as Symbian^1 (S60v3). I am appalled at the number of individuals who either think or worse still, insist that this device is using the Symbian^1 OS.
I am also appalled at the amount of blind consumerism amongst this community - I believe that as intelligent, mature consumers, we should be objective rather than subjective and look at the technology and specifications of any one device, and then examine the implementation of the said technology. A device with an 800mhz CPU could have a poorly-coded OS, and a device with a supposedly slower CPU could have exceptional coding in its OS.
It is only with this mindset can we effect change in any consumer market, by making (or forcing) mega corporations like Apple, Nokia, Microsoft, etc to be more competitive in their pricing and quality and functionality of their products.
It is only unintelligent to say that the technology for Apple to make an iPhone with a decent camera and flash, with multitasking has not existed till now, with its latest iPhone OS and the upcoming iPhone 4G. Such tech has existed for so many years, and yet the iPhone is one of the most successful mobile devices simply because of blind consumerism and loyalty. Some food for thought, no? I wish you all the best in shopping for your next mobile device. :)
Sunil, 13 May 2010I just got my hands on one of the pre-release prototype of the phone through my brother who's ... moreYou're not lying arent you?
hmmm, then what about the UI?
and ofcourse, how's the Symbian^3? how's the multitasking? is the OS stable?
how's the camera performance in a low light condition?
How's the threaded sms feature? is it nice?
how's the contact? I hear it's could be synced to Facebook etc?
hmmm, I guess that's it for now
Judging by all the coments in this fourum, this will be a make or break fone for nokia...i used to buy nokias all the time..until i got the dreadful 5800...i now have an i8910 omnia hd and its fantastic..the n8 specs are top shelf,, but i dont think nokia can deliver...nokia have made many gems in the past..i still regard the 6300 as one of the greatest..the e series are great...e71, the best fone ever made..e63 is also very good..BUT nokia has let other makers take the lead in tech and perfomance....samsung.htc..ect are now so much better..nokia may have an app store( ovi ) but most of the apps are pointless rubbish...will the n8 be the saving grace?? Its gonna have to be good,,real good , or its its going to sink faster than the titanic..and if the post about it not having stereo speakers is accurate.its not off to a good start..
Does anyone know whether this handset comes with FM transmitter as I have an N900 and use this and TV output constantly. Thanks
I ccan see the significant rise in market share for 2010 for nokia
n8 looks very promising, the chaepest yet best multimedia phone
Sunil, 13 May 2010I just got my hands on one of the pre-release prototype of the phone through my brother who's ... moreHello Sunil i was wondering about the screen of the N8...is it scratch rezistent?(i mean the 3.5 " screen)..and another thing....does it feel good in your hand,i mean the build quality if it is that awsome!thanks
celladik, 13 May 2010You people are asking too much from nokia why dont you guyZ buy an iphoNe, samsung, htc with t... moreApart from a slow looking processor and a decidedly average screen, it really does have the best hardware and features of any phone available.
It's just the OS, Im not sure I can live with the OS after having the N97. I want more than tiny fixed height widgets and the boring clock in the corner. I would hope they've done something with the messaging interface.
Good phone, shame about the OS.

Many more disadvantage
I just got my hands on one of the pre-release prototype of the phone through my brother who's a technical co-ordinator of Nokia finnland. Here's what I saw:
The OS is still not completed but the phone is resonably fast but quite slow in the gallery with 12GB of memory filled up. My bro says 6-8GB won't be a problem. The screen looks really good but I guess the brightness and contrast could be better because my current samsung omnia HD's screen looks a little bit better (not much that u'll notice indoors) and the viewing angle could be better. All in all, the screen is better than at least ALL other nokia phones but I think sunlight legibility can be improved.
2. I couldn't use all the camera features due to this early unit but the photos I took in auto looked pretty good...unfortunately I couldn't find any panoroma, blink detection or anti-shake option. The video quality is the real game here. Even the video with the pre-release unit looked quite good but I think the frame-rate is still a issue in this one which my brother said is getting fixed still.
3. To my great disappointment, I saw just one speaker in N8. No stereo. The single speaker is quite loud still.
4. The responsive ness of the touch screen managed to to keep its promise as a capacitive unit. It responses at slightest touch and response is better than Nokia X6. But certain lags especially in app menu still persists.
Finally the phone gave me pretty good intentions as a ex-user of N95 and now samsung omnia HD. If u guys have any question about this phone I'm here to answer.
It will be substitute for my Nokia E63. Can anyone tell me something about Nokia N98 and Nokia N8 mini.
hey ne idea wen the phone mit release in da UAE..nd how expensive is it gna be..???
all androied systemvery bad and very complecated
ok iphone very very very good but almost clibs and system media player not supported

i have all these mobile it looooooose nothing
if u look for call ans unswerd and sms u have to chose simple mobile ,,, but if u look for full mobile its nokia symbion , then iphone
Anonymous, 13 May 2010there is no limit. Screen res has nothing to do with the OS...absolutely nothingOfcourse OS has everything to do with screen resolution limit!!
Change that battery to 1500 mAH and it will be the best phone ever, at least at this price point.
Camera is awesome, talktime and playback time are surprisingly good considering the 1200 mAH battery and the OLED multitouch screen will be great.
I am almost ok with the UI of 5800 XM so i guess i wont have much problem with N8.
Certainly my next phone.
rick, 13 May 2010i think nokia should launch the phone as soon as possible to shut down the comments of the peo... moreI think u r absolutely correct on the releasing of this master piece N8... nothing to do with the comments... these all are just like the thunder showers before a huge raining... after raining everything will be clear.
