This is just another challenge to the excellent Iphone.
Wait until June/July when Iphone 4 is due to be formally announced & I think you'll find that it will make these specifications look rather sick.
I love Nokia.
Finally Nokia on track..........good work nokia.
I like this mobile.......soon i will own it.

I don't know if the Nokia N8's main selling feature based on what we currently know so far is the camera#. Sorry to be a moaning minnie again but... a few questions i ask myself really? WHY! They say it includes 6 channel HD Dolby Digital. How good are the built-in loudspeakers, are they loud enough, do they equal the 5800. I'm a bit upset that the screen is not higher resolution though either. Like 640x360 is relic in TFT screens utilising it. 800X480 at least but I guesse Nokia were late in the development over any rival mobile brands? AMOLED? just how good is the sunlight legibility. Will be interested to hear how it fares in bright sunlight, as my Nokia 5800 is so poor , I don't know what i'm doing outdoors. It needs to be as good as the samsung. Nice to inclue WiFI 802.11/b/g/n standards. Web Flash lite 4.0, flash 10, Nokia 5800 was again poor here. blutooth 2.1 standard, nothing flashy there. HSDPA 10.2MBPS better for anywhere utilising a faster than 3.5G network, probably virtually everywhere with the exception of the UK slow plan roll out. Nice to have an FM transmitter. Web TV is nice to have & background downloading although overlooked is a nice little thing to have on the quiet. The ARM 11 at least a faster 680Mhz CPU, again with 256MB RAM, you can expect it to be pretty nippy & responsive with memory & application performance., especially when Symbian3 has improved memory effiency & multi tasking capabilities. Nice to see a 3D hardware accelerator, Nokia 5800 did not have that. But I hope the sound chip is equal to or better than 5800 & loudspeakers again!! I must admit it's nice to have 16GB of memory anyway & a expandable memory storage up to 48GB. Capacitive is awesome, & WOW multi touuch input method with it too. Multi gesture control, Symbian 3 really improves on the old Symbian 1 Web Browser which was aweful to naviagate. I think Nokia are coaxing us up for something pretty special in their next phone after this. When you consider it has almost perfect with the almost perfect spec. All the next phone needs is bigger battery, SAMOLED, 800x480, 1GHz cpu.
Just think. Nokia had nearly almost done it. They are nye on close to making history with hte most advanced technological smart phone ever
nokia always do good cameras but i bet they were fed up having to bring out a stupid 12MP camfone when they still want to concentrate at the 5MP mark..About battery,, symbian was highly optimised when third edition employed feature pack 2 and looks like they have done even better..600MHz is enuf for this type of device but i suppose people want the 1GHz mark which would not increase the speed but hammer the battery...Glad symbian 3 spec quoted graphics accelelaration this should fly judging by battery its very good coding..
Nokia N8 has an odd shape, but its nice...it will be interesting to see how the new and improved symbian os looks and runs compared to android, specs of the phone are ok nothing to brag about here(the camera maybe) i think a snapdragon chip would have spiced things up a little. waiting for the review.
icedre, 27 Apr 2010the phone looks ugly to me , even if it have 1080p hd 50fps & 20 mp camera , nokia got the... moreThis is a different camera, It will be the best in the market. Sexy little phone. It will do well. I want one.
well ive seen that its going to have angry birds...
seems like a good enough reason to buy this phone :)
i think that it should have a better proccessor, no 680mhz, nokia n97 is really really but really slow, i hope that the n8 would be quicker than n97, everything is really nice, but the main thing is a quick-task smartphone.
almost perfect! i guess you really can't get everything you wanted in just one phone. no doubt the n8's specs will make you wish September will be the next month specially the 12mp/carl zeis optics/xenon flash all together and oh, 720p hd video recording are all in. almost everthing is perfect and totally desirable but i just can't think why.. why nokia.. why did you forget the camera cover???? maybe this will be acceptable if this is a music phone but this isn't just a smartphone, this is obviously a CAMERA PHONE for Christ sake so why the cam cover? its a 500usd phone, why not add 50usd more and put a damn cover on the lens? Would you be sooo proud of your 12mp carl zeis optics xenon flash cam if it's dusty or scratched? but that's just it. good thing is even without that cam cover, n8 is still a kickass. my 3mp iphone 3g is long gone and once n8 is out, im gonna say goodbye to my omniaII.. i cant get all i wanted but n8 is still the thing to beat. (damn why the cover?! ^_^)
Why does nokia insist in symbian software?? They will have to work harder if they want to kill Iphone.....
There's no way that inside this phone could be ARM11 SoC! ARM11 SoC's can't handle 12mp sensors, and playback 720p H.264 packed videos!
@680MHz there's most probably Texas Instruments OMAP3600 series, opposed to N900's OMAP 3400 series.
htc desire is way better.Android OS is even better than Simbian.
Only the camera is good on this phone, but RAM and cpu are 1-2 year specs old.Also the screen res.
[deleted post]look se get satio(12mp) annonce from 2/2009 and nokia now remember that there is another device had 12mp camera nokia get the thing after all company's get's it nokia poor phone and ugly looks
Shame in u nokia
I wrote this comment from the rock (SE SATIO)
Nokia losses all her client's
Wow, the device looks ok, but S^3 just kills it. I wonder how many of you will buy this phone to later realize that you won't be able to upgrade to S^4?
Also, don't say that the iPhone was a mere toy. If Apple didn't release the iPhone do you think that Nokia would be making this (N8) device at all?! LMAO. Q3? By then you'll see what the real competition will offer, and I mean releasing not announcing ;)
cpu 600? and front design like aino but it s great phone nokia u well come back
but sony like no other
CPU Count Single CPU
CPU Type ARM 11
CPU Clock Rate 680 MHz
Graphics Processor 3D Graphics HW Accelerator with OpenGL-ES 2.0 support
its arm according to nokia forums .
