You need pure CPU power to browse the internet fast and software optimization won't cut it. You were just brainwashed to believe that a 680 MHz ARM11 CPU is good enough when the 600 MHz Cortex A8 CPU on the N900 is faster. The N900 have a better CPU despite being released in 2009 and it's 2011 now! Nokia should stop this 680 MHz non sense.

You need a more powerful CPU to have a better web browsing experience and web browsing is one of the N8's weak points. The N900's CPU is better than the 680 MHz CPUs found on recent Nokia smartphones and the N900 was launched in 2009. It's 2011 now.
Nokia should stop brainwashing their fans and move on with better hardware. They are not progressing forward but progressing sideways instead. EDoF/Fixed Focus Camera, 256 RAm and 680 MHz CPU on their smartphones doesn't cut it anymore.
quit saying that nokia should use 1ghz processors over and over!!! nokia will stick to 600+ mhz so the battery life won't drain easily. 600 mhz is powerful enough.
Laurynas, 19 Apr 2011Wrong! NOKIA N95 doesn't have a dual-core processor! NOKIA N95 use OMAP2420, it is a sys... moreWhatever, I'm not interested anymore with the N95, its 4 yrs already in the grave. Imagine March 2007!!! If n95 wins on its era, don't think X7 will win in today's era.
I believe C7, N8, X7, C6, E7 are supposed to be at the same batch as the SE Aino, Satio, Vivaz, etc. & Samsung Pixon, Omnia, Star, Wave etc. & iPhone 2gs, 3gs, but Nokia was just delayed. U r planing to defeat that batch & not the batch of the Android phones such as Galaxy S, that s y after N900 u don't have anymore products released, just now only.
If C6, C7, N8, E7, & X7, was released earlier as the batch of Pixon, Omnia, Satio, Aino, iPhone 3G, then buyers will not say today that Nokia is outdated, & u may win on that competition, but now its dual core era, Nokia don't try to defeat galaxy s with 1ghz cpu anymore because still u r outdated, produce now the more advance model, if Samsung has Galaxy S2 now, same as LG & HTC, then u manufactured more advance smart phone. Even though Galaxy S2 is not yet scattered worldwide, Samsung is thinking now what they can improve with the Galaxy S2. Even other smart phone has quad core cpu now.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2011Yeah, N95 has dual core cpu, you can check here in GSM Arena also the specifications for Nokia... moreWrong!
NOKIA N95 doesn't have a dual-core processor!
NOKIA N95 use OMAP2420, it is a system-on-a-chip (SoC). Technically the OMAP2420 is dual-core, but the second core is a TMS320C55x digital signal processor (DSP), not an ARM processor. And this core isn't used for general processing. That's mean NOKIA N95 has only one single-core processor ARM1136 (330 MHz).
In comparison, the 4 series OMAP has ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore multicore processor.
Thanks Nokia for producing a lot of phone models in just less than 6 Months, u r obsoleting your own products. N8 last 2 weeks is 92% daily interest, now its 68%, i believe X7 will last for less than 6 months only & the price s half as the selling price now. But I am not waiting for the X7 to become cheaper, I'm waiting for WP7 in early 2012.
Its so easy for u to produce hardware, but software is as slow as snail. Until now, the N8 updates is not yet released. So lonely.
[deleted post]Yeah, N95 has dual core cpu, you can check here in GSM Arena also the specifications for Nokia N95, just type Nokia N95 on the "Quick phone search".
[deleted post]It's not even out yet and Nokia is in the middle of a major shake up. Just wait until 2012 and Nokia will be back in full swing. Nokia may be weak right now but they are still a giant in the cellphone industry. I believe that this infatuation with 680 MHz is deliberate though.
Gurushant, 19 Apr 2011Special news for the guys who were proud of samsung galaxy S and apple iphone Apple sues Sa... moreI wish Apple wins this one. I have little respect for Samsung and they don't innovate when it comes to design. Unlike Nokia, Samsung just simply copies the iPhone from the icons, to the shape of the phone, up to the UI.
Always same phone from Nokia with crappy prehistoric symbian and even no autofocus. They are only making them even uglier...Cannot believe people are still buying Nokia phones. Open your eyes ! Look at all the great phones from Samsung, LG, HTC, even SE.
Special news for the guys who were proud of samsung galaxy S and apple iphone
Apple sues Samsung for copying iPhone and iOS looks
looks like both of them have copied some patents from each other. Samsung has copied ios looks, icons etc. And Apple has copied wireless patent infringement and samsung is also going to sue apple. Looks like there is going to be a war between samsung and apple...
Reason why nokia has used dual core on n95 and has not used in mordern phones like n8, c7, c6-01, x7, e7,e6
In Nokia N95
One is the, so called, Application Processor Engine (APE), which handles the high-level operating system Symbian/S60.
The other is the Baseband Engine, or the modem processor, which handles the cellular software and real-time network communications.
If both of these processors are on different physical silicon chips, then it is a dual-chip device.
If the processors are on the same chip, it is a single-chip, dual-core device.
In mordern phones
If the functions of the two processors are given to a single processor, then it is a single-chip, single-core device. (That's the reason why nokia is using single core device)
Such hardware solutions on Symbian OS based devices have been technically possible since the, so called, EKA2 (EPOC Kernel Architecture 2) was introduced; Symbian OS 8.0b, 8.1b, 9.0, 9.1, etc.). And i think this technology is not found in the processors used by android
In addition to the more general purpose processors (usually based on technology by ARM), there can be additional processors, such as DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) or 2D or 3D graphics accellerators. These can also be on the same chip (same silicon), or separate.(these are nothing but the graphics card such as Broadcom BCM2727 GPU used in n8, c7 etc)
I hope now android dumb guys understand this....

Ben Harris, 19 Apr 2011i would rather keep my Apple Iphone 4Who's gonna care if u keep iphone 4 or throw it???? Atleast i'm not gonna care...
680 MHz ARM 11 is to 2000 and late, lol.
I own a N8 and I'm very happy with the camera, but it's laggy as crap. Sometimes I press 5 or 6 keys, I let go the keyboard and after a few seconds the characters start to appear in the screen. What a piece of $hit, the user experience is the worst I've experiences in a phone. My older samsung E250 and my Nokia 5530 XM had much better response and user experience.
Thanks God Nokia decided to move away from Symbian.
Halid, 19 Apr 2011Mr. Real What Gurushant wanted to tell was, the speed which you get in 1ghz for android wil... moreYa thats exactly what i was going to tell but some dumb guys dont understand and yell simply thanks halid for making the dumb guys understand the concept of CPU.. and i agree with u that nokia phones often hangs but its not with the cpu its because that symbian gets virus quickly. Check the speed of the mobile the day you bought and after using some time in internet.
