Hi all, I will either get this phone or the Samsung Beam around the October period. I am currently using the Nokia E72 which I acquired in January 2010. The E72 has a strong battery and a fast processor. I am not to bothered about how the phone looks. That is a shallow mentality. The N8 and the Samsung Beam are not that pretty but have tremendous specs. I know the Beam has an excellent battery and I await the battery specs on that of the N8. I want to stay with Nokia but could switch camps to Samsung. HTC, Ericsson and others don't interest me. As for new iphones which will appear in summer, I am not interested in Apple. By Autumn (aka Fall to those in the US and Canada), I will have clearer pictures of things as new models will be out, release dates confirmed and estimated prices known.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2010like that not good nokia fan people vote to 9.7 9.7 9.7 and now drop bk to 8.6 8.8 8.8 omg do... moreshould you even be rating "performance" when you haven't tried the device yet? generally speaking...
it is going to be war with sony ericsson satio , pixon 12 and n98 which is a kids toy man i love satio and it is better than mr.cheapskate (nokia n98) and satio beats samsung because it is a smartphone blah blah blah.
What everyone wants then is a 4.5" HD version of the n900 but with four rows of keys, maemo 6, 18mp camera, 1tb memory and a fruit icon embellished on the thing.
Anyone got any bits and a screwdriver?
expected by 4th quarter 2010? no nokia buys for me in the meantime then! SE and Samsung...bring em on!
Facts obviously aren't strait yet. 12.1 MP does seem kinda obsurd, trying to compare to what Sony's throwing. Difference is, Sony is now totally run by China. Brand means very little, they do the research, and China makes the phone. If american countries made it, the phone would be alot better quality. No issues at all, and by the way, price would x2.
Dan, 12 Apr 2010Sabotage? How come you think about it? Are you in favor of another handset? WT...Well...if u consider a mobile that has a rating of 9.7 9.7 9.7 for a long long time and suddenly it stoops down to 8.6 8.8 8.7, i think u might fairly call it a sabotage!
And yes, I am in favour of an other mobile, namely the C6, n I hope to buy it soon...wt......

Wow NOKIA,,,, 12 Mega Pixel camera with carl Zeiss lense. 32GB buildin memory,,, FM with FM transmitter. Great phone. live time free navigation worldwide. and much more....
Absolutely agreed... to me the survey is not reliable.
It looks like only figures ..not facts.
it wud b the best if it hs a qwerty keyboard & 4.3" screen :-(
bt it still looks cool..dnt hv ne idea about sym^3..
Have anyone check out the Sharp Aquos 941SH mobile as it have an awesomes 4" HD screen of 480 x 1024 res with an 8 Megapixel camera compared to what on the market now which varies between 480 x 800 or 854 res.
What would be ideal for this new Nokia N8 or N98 would be for the screen to have at least 480 x 854 res and will defiently buy this phone as so far Nokia camera optics are still the best incomparison to Sony Ericsson which are rubbish.
Hey GSMARENA when will you have a full review on the Sharp Aquos 941SH mobile phone. Also check out the imobile TV658 touchscreen mobile as it is an awesomes dual sim with dual standby mobile and the 8 megapixel camera are on par if not better than all in the market 8 megapixel cam phones available today.
Hopefully the Nokia N8 will have 480 x 800 screen res at the very least.
