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 While symbian is left with an old outdated ui.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!
Anonymous, 01 May 2010all those features into one single device? blah blah blah
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.

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
with a ARM 11 680 MHz processor...
what will be the speed of this phone browsing 12mpx pictures from a gallery??
hahahaha...just curuios... :D
[deleted post]So lets look at this statement...
For all those people who think that Nokia is a follower or copier..
Nokia N8 is the 1st phone with :-
1)WiFi n - Wrong others have had it the Wi-Fi n specification has only just been signed off, so it was in draft, there are other phones which had the draft variant built in, it will just need a firmware update to bring it to full spec.
2)HDMI output - Whoopee doo, it's a bloody phone, not a DVD/Video recorder.
3)USB port support. you can connect your memory stick or hard drive directly into the phone - OK, so it'll drain your phones battery in a minute or two & you'll have no phone or HDD/usable memory stick! Whoo Hoo!
4)Dolby Digital surround sound technology. Utterly useless as it's an offence to play music in public without a Public Performance Licence, it's an offence to play it on a train, bus or any other location where it's likely to cause a nuisance or offence to others.
)12MP and 720p both into one phone - Been & done long ago by others and how long is the lens going to last without a cover on it? Answer - Not long. HD video pointless unless you have serious amounts of expensive memory.
6)5 band 3.5G support - Maybe unique, so what?
7)Aluminium Uni body - Seriously easy to damage & seriously expensive to replace, it's also a good conductor of electricity, so it could get charged statically & zap the electronics inside. Result one dead phone...
Nokia aren't smart, in fact they're rather dumb because they've not listened one jot to their customers who are not in the least bit satisfied with their bug ridden & puerile previous efforts.
Well doh, how many phone producer has put all those features into one single device (and speaking of android phone)? None. And it's apparently gonna be nokia, who will take the chance 1st. I'm no nokia fanboy, infact i used to get along with samsung, but ur manner is quite ridiculous and yes, i think it's u who are dumb. For the sake of your dumbness, no one is required nor forced to play his/her gadget in public just because he/she has dolby surround enabled device. Ever heard place called home or something like indoor? But if you're shelterless bummer, my condolences to you.
Niraj, 01 May 2010Friend, I think this is also the first phone comes with capacitive stylus..X6 Chinese version also have it already
Mobil1, 01 May 2010Most of the users here just regurgitate info they read somewhere else. The fact is that Symbi... moreTheoretically symbian OS does not need too much RAM nor a powerful CPU but in reality it's worth cranking it up a little bit just ask any N97 user.
Symbian 3 is the first symbian OS that has been coded from ground up specifically for touch screen devises and believe me you never know how strong the OS is until the public get involved.
So we can shout and dance, curse and praise throw our hands up in the air in despair or excitement truth is new OS is never perfect when released and more RAM is kinda like insurance just in case things don't got to plan like N97.
Mobil1, 01 May 2010Most of the users here just regurgitate info they read somewhere else. The fact is that Symbi... moreYea I agree with you the iphone 4g start with 94% & now it's down to 62%.
This device will kill the iphone if nokia market it good.
[deleted post]Ok let me know when you get a iphone officially unlock for $500.
[deleted post]The 4-th is a good one , hahaha ... I own a nokia e90 with stereo spekers and I listen music in my home with this gadget.Yeah, you red well... I listen music at my nokia e90 in my home almost every day.And this is just because my home cinema Logitech Z-5500 is driving me crazy even at low volume...
Most of the users here just regurgitate info they read somewhere else. The fact is that Symbian does not need a ton of RAM & an extremely fast processor to run its devices.
There is nothing wrong with the N8 whatsoever, it is hands down the best imaging device on the market, & the comparisons to the iPhone are getting so old. Let me know when you can get the new iPhone 4G for $500.00.
Apple has ONE device to focus on, & being a previous 3Gs owner, it is not that great of a device. I won't go into what it lacks, because if you have ever owned one, then you know its short-comings.
If anyone thinks that Nokia is doomed, you are truly misguided. They may be late to the party, but you can guarantee that when Nokia announces its S^4 & MeeGo devices, Apple will be a mere memory.
Oh....& a 96% "Daily Interest" just shows how popular this device will be.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2010ARM 11!?! Really Nokia, way to cripple an otherwise amazing phone.It's still ok to us the ARM 11 CPU chip since it has better hardware plus it's using the new symbian OS is very light
Satan, 30 Apr 2010COME ON NOKIA...keep a lens cover..i can never live myself if the lens are scratched...what ar... moreAll the new hardware uses 25 - 50 power
Means it's lighter
Amoledscreen cuts power usage by 75%
The new UI that uses more frames and less cPU and ram
The clockspeed is set higher so the standby last longer
