John, 01 May 2010Ok nokia's problem they have no good phone picked up by a carrier. Only like 1 out of 10 ameri... moreThat's because in the us the cellular networks trick it's customers in thinking their are getting a great deal by buying a phone on contract instead of buying one that's completely unlocked, which will be cheaper in the long run.
after a lonngggg wait..now i have the phone that can replace my n82..The N8 without the 2 of course..heheh
ARM 680 - perceived low spec negated by 3D accelerator, besides Symbian 3 is not as power hungry as the other OSs)
RAM 256 - perceived insufficiency negated but the Writable Paging Request of the (read up for more info) Symbian 3
Fixed Aperture Size - perceived a step back after N86 negated by better sensor
Fixed Battery - perceived as not replaceable, not true as you can replace it once it fails albeit removing a couple of screws
1200 mAh - perceived small capacity negated but improving power efficiency of the CPU, right sized RAM, AMOLED display.
Lacks Optical Zoom - negated by improvements to digital zoom that ensures no pixelation when zoomed
Symbian 3 - perceived as dated negated by perceivers lack of knowledge. Please do yourselfs a favor by reading up on the improvements of the OS under the hood and its overall superiority compared to the others.
Why one puts up with such negations and not have it all - it will be too bulky (optical zoom, bigger battery, camera cover, keyboard) too power hungry (RAM, bigger screen) and not forgetting too expensive (big storage, big RAM, big screen...etc)
N8 is a device that has everything and more, delivered in the most balanced package for the most appealing price. Have fun future N8 comrades.
Ok nokia's problem they have no good phone picked up by a carrier. Only like 1 out of 10 americans would go to store with nokia unlocked phones. They usually go to the offical stores to get the phones they have.
For those who doesnot like capacitive screen
nokia has already made so many resistive phone and nontouch phones, go and select the right one, it is time for nokia to care about capacitive lovers
If a lot of people think a 1Ghz processor and a 1500mAh battery is what the N8 needs, then they're dead wrong.
Symbian^3 doesn't need a 1Ghz processor because it's a simple and user friendly UI. None of those flashy android stuff. And since it has a lower processor it doesn't need a 1500mAh battery. 'Cause lower processors aren't power hungry unlike Samsung phones.
PLUS the screen's AMOLED. Better power consumption.
Just because the numbers are bigger doesn't mean they're better.
Anonymous, 01 May 2010all those features into one single device? blah blah blah oh wake up! do you have this phone ... moreDo you actually think Symbian needs a 1Ghz Snapdragon to function well? Are you mad?
yes indeed. symbian is down.
even Symbian 5th edition doesn't have the coreplayer app. no support even from the most popular media player.
This is just nokia camera flagship phone, but it is already beat all the others
looking forward to nokia world in september 2010
unfortunately i wont upgrade to new phone this year because i have bought n97 mini which i am loving it especially its comfortable keyboard
LOL anyone that will use a glove to usse their touchscreen phone doesnt deserve to have a touch screenphone.. you should try a blackberry with actual keys.
Nokia share holders are mad that they always starring at the back of the Iphone. Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo will have to beg for his job while his counterpart Steve Jobs basks in glory. Quote "Last week Nokia delayed Symbian 3, its software platform revamp seen as a first step to make its smartphones competitive again, triggering a sell-off in its shares". End Quote Reuters
LOL welcome back to the game Nokia it's tough old world out there.
i hope there will be pink available color in nokia n8, i will definitely buy 1..
In Q3 slick looking Android phones with flashy and modern user interfaces would've been announced. Windows Mobile 7 Series phones would also be announced and WinMo has now upgraded to a slick interface. While symbian is left with an old outdated ui. For gods sake we're in 2010!

oh wake up! do you have this phone ... moreCPU is part of the speed, RAM & ROM is what made the processor complete.
I bet your iphone don't have all of these superb specification.
Nokia Rocks !!!
No one can beat nokia in comparison to hardware,features,user friendly os and popularity. I am just wandering is this phone using same os like N97? i guess nokia should have introduced linux like n900 on n8 instead of symbian.
Anonymous, 01 May 2010So lets look at this statement...
For all those people who think that Nokia is a follower o... moreall those features into one single device? blah blah blah
oh wake up! do you have this phone in your hands?
i bet this would be a slow mobile
680 MHz processor is not enough for this phone and 1200mah battery. haha
