Actually, the OS for the N9 is MeeGo, not Symbian^3. Hopefully, Nokia will make MeeGo the new flagship OS. Symbian is good, but it's terribly dated.
ohyesmmtnx, 22 Aug 2010Thought it's going to be MEEGO?! And 8MP?! Could you just stop it with the horshit and just bu... moreTry to be a little rational.
Firstly, its meego.
Would you buy this phone if it had the n8 camera and was 18mm thick? Yes or no? Mobile manufacturers make phones neither so they can brag at being the best nor so you can. They make them to sell them. What if this phone had all the features of the n8 plus more, was just as slim and cost 1000euros. Would you buy it?
You don't expect every new model to improve on every previous model in every aspect. Thats why we have line ups and target audiences. The n8 is a media minded gadget. This model looks to me like a pocket pc. Business oriented if you may.
Also, you shouldn't expect every model to meet your needs. Its not like your gonna buy all of them. There are 7billion people in the world. Every phone has its audience. If you don't like the specs, move on. You can only criticize a phone based on price/features ratios.
There is no such thing as outdated. Infrared was invented decades ago. Till this day, tv remotes still make use of it
Don't understand how they will relase the N8 with a 12MP cam and "only" an 8MP on the N9
Can't they just make a flagship that has it all..??
its not yet launched anywhere... it will be launch mayb in december... i am waiting for it...
Hope it includes a DVB-H broadcast receiver, and that it works down here in Argentina. Would it?
Currently, there are 3 Digital TV world standards, US american ATSC, european DVB & japanese ISDB-T.
Argentina's SATVD-T (Sistema Argentino de Televisión Digital Terrestre), defined to follow the brazilian version SBTVD-TB (Sistema Brasileño de Televisión Digital Terrestre), based in the japanese ISDB-T (Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting Terrestrial).
Leaked pictures shows that it has a led flash and the article on gsmarena says that it will have a 5mp camera ! Well done nokia otherwise N9 would b a N8 killer ! I am going with N8 :)
smith, 24 Aug 2010pls provide source/link for this info?I got it off Mobile Crunch. The original source is from a Chinese forum off Baidu.
Anyway, GSMArena has an article up on these specs now.
Standard battery, Li-Ion 1320 mAh wrong
Standard battery, Li-Ion 3200 mAh

Annoying guy..., 21 Aug 2010I am sorry, but..... YOU ARE NOOB... All of S60 and N900(Maemo OS) has/had LOCK PHONE feature ... moreSince i'm from Indonesia and still 13 years old, i just can a little english..
What did you mean about Noob?
But, really that Nokia has security code phone when we have locked keypad our handphone?
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2010there might be a security code that you can put on this phone- its most likely in settingsI hope security code phone (when we have locked our handphone) Nokia has..
good by htc,se,samsung,best ever ever nokia & best ever mobile phones on earth.
this phone will be MeeGo not symbian 3. the n8 is the last symbian N series nokia
I hear a lot about people wishing for 1080p recording.
But really most tvs do a good job of upscaling 720p material to a level where you almost cant tell the difference between 720p and 1080p.
With still resolution one can use the resolution to zoom in on details, but with video, users are unlikely to do that.
And look at how N8 handles 720p for zooming and light capture. with 1080p you could not do the same.
1080p puts a lot more strain on CPU and RAM, and thus the batttery.
so at this point 720p is really to be prefered. Lets hope Nokia don fall in to the Video megapixelrace.
Ok, its all rumors here.
But why post nHD resolution, when it seems unlikely, just leave it blank.
Symbian^3, not if this is N9... Symbian^4 perhaps, but most likely MeeGo. So make it blank, or post MeeGo.
Super AMOLED, we wish, but if Nokia didnt strike a deal with samsung, and exact that is the reason for the shortage on the market, Super Amoled is unlikely at this point.
OVI Maps 3.0, might be true some day, but im skeptical we will se it on release... probably should be left out of the specs.
Battery, well, I would leave that out as well, sure this proto device might be using 1320... but it seams low.
Codecs I would probably leave out as well, they might require 3rd party applications. So I wouldnt have posted that if I was in charge.
And screen size, if there is no dimensions, then I doubt size of screen is confirmed. probably 3.5-4inch, but we dont know.
Sure posting rumours is fun, but one should be a bit censervative when posting them.
