Anonymous, 01 May 2010I agree with you Nokia isn't half bothered about making a phone for geeks all Nokia cares is t... moreProper Os...?
Symbian is more proper and Simple than Android..
What the current s^3 lacks is the eye-candyness.. I can bet s^3 is more simple to use and since it is a simple Os so it will work great.. Dont forget n8 also has a 3d h/w accelerator , with 680 mhz processer, so it will run smoothly.. Android phones have 1 ghz processer but no h/w accelerator.. Plus android phones also lacks secondry camera, I dont know people in Europe and US use it or not but in India it is a very demanding feature.. This phone also features web tv and usb on go, dont say these features are useless because every body know how cool features are they.. Fm transmitter- its a cool way to share music among friends..
12mp camera- well no words, every one know this phone has revolutionary camera on any mobile. No need to keep digital cameras in pocket. And the glass used to cover camera is scratch resistant, so why are you crying for a camera cover, no need to put over-weight in this phone..
Design- design is new and fresh well I admit this design is not new Lg optimus and SE Aino have similar design, but all manufacture makes similar phones, see design of Samsung Galaxy S is similar to Iphone..
Jean, 01 May 2010That's the point. Nokia isn't bothering to make phones for us, geeks.

NOKIA is the name of pure business. NOKIA doesn't care what the geeks want, what the tech experts want. they just fulfill the necessities of normal people like calling, listening audio, browsing internet, taking pictures, etc. dont expect much from Nokia in terms of technology. they go according to market. there all strategies & future plans are based on just one thing & thats "Earning Money"

Anonymous, 01 May 2010I don't think it's CAMERA PHONE. It lacks LENS COVER, that's why it already failed.so you think the cover makes the phone a camera-phone..or the camera ?!?!? you are a super-1d10t ! :)))
Anonymous, 01 May 2010Samsung galaxy s (i9000) is better than N8 in everything (expect 12mpix camera). Moreover gala... more1. No way android is better than symbian...chill out with thins non sense ! i9000 is below the n8 !
2. glass is scratch resistant...so no scratches on the lens !
hey dude...the one who spoke about i9000 galaxy...well wat makes you think that no scratches will ever get to fall on i9000's camera??
I am always following the symbian tech blog like allaboutsymbian and thenokiablog, i am not going to say i am phone expert.
I have been using n97 mini for five months now, it is good enough for everage people out there, feature rich and capable, a bit slow butt not painfully slow, n8 is much better spec than mini n97; do you really think n8 will not sell well worldwide?
N8 is a superphone, ovi make symbian and nokia even greater .
N900 is a geek phone, meego make nokia and intel even greater
waiting for microsoft office for symbian to come out, any news on this partnership?
Next thing nokia need to take care is to revitalize the ovi store, the quality of ovi store is good, have almost all the essential apps i want for my nokia phone, just lack some funny good games
thanks. Hope nokia listen to me
Cheap according to its performance....12MP...CPU:680....3.5 inch touchscreen...

not everyone is expert l;ike you. ok. more than 80% of your friends (& mine too) dont know whts the importance of processor in the phones they are holding. they just use it. nokia earned the fame & trust thats not easy to break. so people always prefer nokia. only some freaks like you want a gadget within the body of mobile having 2ghz processor, 1gb ram, 320 gb internal memory, latest android, amoled screen, etc. but normal people going to buy this n8 like crazy. god bless you

We want a snapdragon, android(meego is ok), good ram. Not a phone for teens.
N900 sold much less than N97. Does that mean N97 is better? N900 is a 1000 times better. come one, n97 doesn't have kinetik scrolling, the least thing a phone could have our days. And why? because of symbian.
This phone is gonna sell, I can assure you that. But not because it's a great phone. It's same for n97.
[deleted post]as i said criticizing not going to help.
please open your brain. nokia going to earn trillions from this "shaver".

But no they just go on making what view want to make, squeezing our necks in the process, lol. Don't fool yourself, this is all about making money. You see the millions the make per quarter, don't you think they can manage to sell their phones cheaper???
