Anonymous, 15 Jan 2011Dude? Check the n9 page post. Media told that it will be announced at MWC in 14th february.The media say a lot of things. A lot of things are not even true. You would be rather naive to believe that statement. If nokia made an official statement then bank on this being released at the event. I truly hope that they release it then. I want to get one soon. This is going to be the turning point for nokia. Make or break. I believe that they have the right people and strategy to win. The phone is pure linux. Not a kerrnel like android. Android is good though but the n9 is going to be a gamechanger. This is not a nokia statement but purely my thoughts on their strategy. If all that they have done too the maemo platform is replicated into this os, then there is no sting nokia from here on. Delaying the phone any further is bound to have an detrimental effect on company itself. The n8 has already shown positives in the sense that they were to initially retrench 800 workers and now it has been slashed to just 500. Well done to the n8. May it be known to many people for years to come that it was the phone that steadied the nokia ship until it had bought enough time to bring out the heavy artillery...n9!! I wait with much abated breath for the release of this phone and hope that for once you're right. I'm not banking on the media input but rather would watch the market and anticipate the outcome based on my thoughts rather. I Will not publish what the media states but rather my experiences and maybe wishes and the odd question or two. Fingers are crossed for April.
And i dont own Iphone 4, i just compared different things with different phones.
tanx guys for your much needed advice,still enjoying the pleasure of a masterpiece from nokia..another slight problem, i cant download ovi store, it says opening secure .... then it fails to download,i cant acess games or anything any help please
Is it really that hard to Nokia to leave these outdated cpu and ram memory.
I watched many videos from youtube and noticed every big games loading times was three times longer than iPhone 4. For example need for speed took 25 second and iPhone took 9 second, same difference with avatar, asphalt, etc. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Also web browser is very laggy worst in mobile business.
N8 had opportunity to be best mobile phone on the planet, but they ruined it with very old cpu and slow memory.
Why i want to buy this compared two or three times faster devices?
Most of the time when i use my phone i surf on web
bullzeye, 15 Jan 2011oh that is awesome, i am also on pay as you go. i do the same. i didnt know of the 24hour t... moreMy friend at nashua mobile just offered me another n8 for R4500! A black one brand new with the 24 month gaurentee. I'll save the cash for now. Cant wait for the n9. Its going to be an awesome phone. Will have 2 awesome phones!! One for work, one me for play!lol.
Can someone tell me the price of the blue nokia n8 here in the Philippines? the store location and the price... please tell me.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2011Thanks for responding Trinidad Guy. Did you say the new version of Ovi Maps has a compatible d... moreHey Jamaica Guy. Prior to the Ovi Maps update there was a map of Trinidad showing major highways only. It was not detailed. After the update there was just a large blank space on the map where Trinidad was so I allowed Maps to connect to the internet and the previous map that was present was downloaded automatically.
I believe Martinique and Guadaloupe have detailed maps and that presently Jamaica seems to have the same map format as Trinidad. I do not know if Ovi Maps had a detailed map of Jamaica prior to the update.
Google however does offer reasonably detailed maps of Trinidad and Jamaica. These are only available online however.
deep space bar, 15 Jan 2011it's better then all those half @ssed android updates XD Good to see you here. I also own and love the N8. Why I like Nokia is that everything works and the fantastic warranty/support and great build quality.
I know Android is more flashy and looks better, but it just sucks the battery flat so fast.
BTW, its good fun harrassing the blind SE f@gboys....really they are so pathetic.
can some one tell me how to know the difference between the new batch of n8 and the faulty ones i love the n8 but i will wait till the new firmware comes with better web browser and more faster the phone should be i think i will to c what new phones nokia is going to bring out i am looking at the n9 i wonder if there will have the n8 big brother that would be good like 16 or 20 mega pixels go nokia
yes I can, 15 Jan 2011This is your reply really? Nokia will release information via its website or if a person relea... moreThank you. you have put in words what so many of us loyal N8 genuine fans have been thinking.It was a joy to read. Thanks
Dipto, 15 Jan 2011never knew u were a debate winner... wouldnt have wasted my time on u... coz debaters like u c... moreThis is your reply really? Nokia will release information via its website or if a person release info 4 elemnts. Named person @ Location Date and Info. nokia do not hint at anything , it just creates more work for them fielding question. Again my post to ZEE fiction, had a release date between now & 5 weeks. you any time soon. soon now and ..or where is soon on my watch or calendar I CAN'T FIND IT?
So nokia can & will reply to questions if you have a source. The reason why they control the information is to make sure its all co-ordinated and what is released is what they intended. People are posting this made up junk in other forums, and then others are picking this up and posting. So a lie started in this forum goes around the world. So say a person is intending to buy an N8 and the firmware is NOT released, then they will buy another model. I've read it posted that due to delay in the N8 release a person wnet for the IP4 not you fault this time. people act on information and none of yours is accurate. every thing so far is wrong wrong wrong. why well one question what is your source. do you even know or understand the havoc you ADKANE, ZEE are creating, so anyone reading you reply again the attack not to the content because that does'nt matter but to the person. either its the N8 or we hate you.
I and others are making decisions based on this info which you know is false fabriacted.
I have more than my fair share of post deleted so just in case this is cut & paste
Me i get paid money for providing information , if they were as accuarte as your i'd be out of a job
SO IF I MAKE A STATEMENT I AM THE MOST ATTRACTIVE MALE IN THE WORLD, or THEY ARE NO MIRRORS IN MY HOUSE
which of those stataemsnt is more likely to be correct,
The very notion that Nokia will release to you 1st is laughable,(PRESS OFFICE, WEBSITE) so this is your life why get the N8 now when there is still 3 months on my contract.
stick to what you know and that so far is nothing
WHO IS YOUR SOURCE?
exposed, if you heard it from them guess what its all made up
if another phone actually comes along which is better than the N8 ( no can't happen) thats where we will find you in that forum.
less of the personal attacks its shows you for what you are limited.

i hope this place supports 3.5g lol
can any one tell me how if playing games on the n8 is smooth just like i phone 4
Great build quality
Awesome 12MP camera
Outstanding multimedia performance
Symbian^3 still looks dated
Internet browser could be smoother
Not too many apps available for the platform

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2011Nokia always make us waiting and waiting.we've been waiting for N8 to released for a half year... more Check out the changelogs for Android and see how long Android users have to wait for updates.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2011nothing parallel to galaxy s or htc desire hd N8 is not parallel to Galaxy S or Desire HD. It is perpendicular (:P) to both of them. N8 is about being the best camera in the business and being a rugged reliable phone(something which symbian specializes in). When people go raving about android, I really wonder what core functionality does android provide that symbian doesn't. I've played with a desire, N1 and an X10 and apart from the fluid UI I just can't see any improvement.
