Cell phone fanboys are the worst kind of fanboys!
I think this phone is excellent, just like every other company has excellent phones.
to OKP and annony....
We, in Bangladesh have our Official Nokia Shops in several places and they bring the units from China (with specific manufacturing factory, date etc) with warrenty. My point is we do not give a damn about whether it is made in Finland or Hungary or USA. We know we buy sets from Nokia Themselves and they take care of the 'em if the sets fall under warrenty cover- THAT'S IT.
Im glad to see nokia named this N8...and not X8 or C8
N series still the best in my opinion...love all n series...and keeps getting better...cant wait for this one to come out...

The problem with Samsung/LG is not that they are made in korea, but that they were constructed there! And, Samsung use factories in China as well. Dont know abt LG, i dont care, LG cant make anything good, not even aiconditioners from LG are useable (and Samsung Airconditioners get noisy and bad after short time, just like their electronics the durability and service seem to be problematic). Thank god Nokia does not make refrigerators and stoves, but they do however make excellent tires (was re-branded to Nokian long long time ago now, to avoid name confusion) =)
I'm nokia user, and I'm using 5800 right now, in my personal opinion, it's true that looks like nokia's build not as good as it used to be...
too bad, even I think about going to the other brand a few times, but everytime I look, I dont know and confused myself, so I guess I'll just stick with nokia right now, see if this N8 is going to save nokia's a*s, cause I already have a high expectation about this phone

But when you pay top dollar you should expect top product.
I hope the S3 will stray away from the basic touch UI experience of Sv60, it will be much disappointment if it does.
considering the symbian platform 680mhz is enough to keep the phone fast and usable no more is needed so nokia didnt waste

Anonymous, 10 May 2010iphone is also made in china... your such a fanboy... lol... apple takes baby steps on iphone.... moresorry to dissapoint you , but i am not a fanboy like yourself....if the n8 turns out to be a winner, i will change my mind on that particular fone . But as it stands at the moment, the n8 is just an image on a screen..plus a couple of utube videos..its not real yet..only in nokia fans mind.,.my i8910 hd is real..im useing it to write this, and it is a great fone so far...as for your i phone comment,,i got the omnia over the apple cause omnia not made in cheapo china..
to the uninitiated:
more powerful processor = more battery drain
less complex OS = less processor power requirement
nokia n8 is the best balance between battery, OS, and processor.
hurray Nokia! you earned my bucks again (after the N97 shenanigan). now i'll wait for this instead of waiting for the android 2.1-powered SE x10!
if iphone and nokia is made in korea im sure its price will be higher then now. If iphone made in usa and nokia made in finland its even higher. cheap labour = low quality. they should make made in USA and made in china. so ppl can choose to buy a standard made in china or premium made in usa.
[deleted post]iphone is also made in china... your such a fanboy... lol... apple takes baby steps on iphone... the features and the specs they have are not great...
[deleted post]Very true. Nokia build quality is getting really bad (except for the very cheap phones, because this is where Nokia makes money).
Always high excitement then disappointment as usual. But I have never been disappointed since switching to Samsung.
Nokia should drop Symbian and use Android. But as for not reacting to touchphones demand by customers, they think they know better than everyone else. RIP Nokia
