Read and study enough hardware and firmware issue from Nokia Products. I am Nokia supporters since many years ago, but I lost my faith in this brand name. Especially all these touch screen phone release by Nokia 5800,n97,n97mini..x6 etc.. did anyone here have start up failure,hang on start up screen b4? Keylock not working sometime?...lost all your contents cause of their firmware bug? So, what can Nokia promise on this N8? I don't want to be a BETA tester for their products anymore... I need a stable phone.

12 mp is great, but not necessary. 5-8mp should be sufficient. I think Nokia should increase the RAM to 512MB or at least 384MB. And processor should be 1 Ghz or at least 800 Mhz. Nokia should try to improve on the RAM and processor rather than just the camera.
[deleted post]yes, i play UT3 with my "plastic" phone on BADA and you enjoy in aluminum with solitaire on N8 !
my last 4 phones have been nokias. 5800. 5730. E63(good fone e63).and 1 other ..apart from the e63 ,they have all been below average in terms of performance and bad build quality...i now have hd omnia and it is far better than any nokia i have ever used..its o/s may be symbian 60s v 5 ,but samsung do touch better than nokia ever will......having the 5800 for 2 months (i ended up giving it away for 0) has turned me off nokia touch screens..the n8 will probably continue this tradition..the e63 was good because it was made in korea not china..this is were nokias problems for their highend fones started..'MADE IN CHINA' .i dont care what comments come back from this because it is true...china is cheap labour.cheap products.and poor workmanship...omnia made in korea..e63 made in korea(both good)..5800..5730..ect.ect.ect all MADE IN CHINA ......sorry to the chinese readers
Another of a plastic boomarang, slow processor and still 5cm width smaller than Iphone, why can they make equally width gives its balance then too thinn. Must bet first batch will be hell to use, nokia policy to get testing from clients.
Release Date coming in May?
I hope so :)
Guys, the N8 is the upgrade to N86, thus the N8 usage. The upgrade to N97 will be N9. Remember that the N9x series were "high-end", while the N8x series were photogenic "high-end". The N9 will probably the flagship people have been waiting for.
Great phone, Symbian ^3 looks promising! People, can you even read?!?! What's plastic? Anodised aluminium? Far too many imbeciles write comments here (some can't even write in proper English). Furthermore - has any of you TOUCHED the device? NO?? Drooling poor people, go slander somewhere else, please!
hriju, 08 May 2010wow....its really awesome....i m dreaming of having one......its multi touch with 256 ram,680... moreCorrection: its not "680MHz processor", its "680MHz ARM 11 processor". Its seriously much weaker than the 600MHz Arm Cortex A8 of N900.
Not impressive. I hope we soon see a serious Nokia capacitive AMOLED model, and by serious i mean Maemo/Meego. Symbian smartfones belong to the past for me, a month with N900 has shown me my way into the mobile future, mobile computers is the thing, not smartfones with "camera on steriods" and other flashy specs.
Niraj, 08 May 2010Can you please give us the link..Bro, actually i gotta a XML file (no doubt, a hacked one) through email from my friend whos a software engineer in Vancuwar, canada.
Oops! what's wrong with Nokia they still don't have a 1Gh processor and no micro USB port. Ofcourse, the camera is brilliant.
I knew something is wrong when people called this the 2010 Flagship of Nokia when I clearly saw a 16GB storage. Why on earth Nokia downgraded to a 16GB when they're current Flagship is a 32GB?
Just found out that this is just an upgrade to the Nokia N86 8MP which is an 8GB phone. Im glad this is not the Flagship.
I'll wait for the next Flagship. This is still a great phone as it uses the wide lens.
Good job Nokia. Now bring this to Canada so I will be happy
wow....its really awesome....i m dreaming of having one......its multi touch with 256 ram,680mhz processor,12mp camera with smile and face dtection.....amazing.....nokia rocks...
This phone is the best phone I've ever seen. No other phone could beat this one until the end of this year... yeah.. I'm sure...
