Symbianfan, 04 May 2010Probably the biggest fool on earth is one who expects symbian^3 to be a hit and lots of applic... moreThere's also a second fact.. This phone integrated with qt support means applications of s^4 and meego will support this phone..
Bingo, 04 May 2010Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortuna... moreI think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, then dont you think it's just ridiculous?? they sell a nice phone like this and kill it just after half a year??
Probably the biggest fool on earth is one who expects symbian^3 to be a hit and lots of applications.
because. Nokia knows that they are not going to support symbian^3 because symbian^4 is on its way and symbian^3 will not exist for more than half a year. Please correct me if I am wrong
Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortunately Nokia speakers are usually very small and have very low sound volume.
Still a nice phone, but android would have been soooo much better than the prehistoric S60.
Although not mentioned and some unconfirmed opinion says it does not have stereo speakers but I think it will have stereo speakers as its quite high on audio specs with Dolby Digital and SRS surround etc. This is entirely my guess though. May be the speakers are hidden somewhere (like 5800) and is not visible in pics. Lets hope for the best.
Kcd, 04 May 2010Wow! Nokia really pulled a rabbit out of the hat this time. But as with any magic trick yo... moreNokia N8 just as any other Nokia phone from now on is capable of running applications written for Qt framework. This means that any applications that will be written for future Meego or Symbain^4 devices will run on N8 as well.
isn't this Symbian^3 gonna be open source just like android? does that mean that there's gonna be a lot of apps pouring down for the nokia phone from this point??
You need screw driver to replace battery
Someone ask Nokia why they left out stereo speakers for this high end phone please.
Wow! Nokia really pulled a rabbit out of the hat this time.
But as with any magic trick you might want to step back and look at the big picture. The Symbian^3 OS on this phone is going to be the shortest lived OS Symbian has made - to be replaced in a matter of months by Symbian^4. In other words releasing this phone with Symbian^3 is a stop gap measure by Nokia to mesmerize their audience. And if Nokia had any business sense they will release the same phone again next year with the new OS - maybe call it N8^4. Now that's going to piss off all the early adopters especially when they realize that no one is interested to write applications for an OS with barely any supported handsets. Still the show has to go on...
chris, 04 May 2010no infrared port! how lame! how lame nokia! how lame!infrared is a backdated technology.No one will miss it
the nokia online store should have the real price of the device once it is out. local stores and other online stores will overcharge for sure
