And what is wrong with your Bravia? Are you telling me it doesn't have a Type A HDMI connector?

There are many compatability situations u ll face, i believe u watch lot of Bond movies... Fancy sun glasses with cam, Cars, laser watch... LOL
If u think N8 is wonderful for u, good for u...
Hotels cant keep a HDMI enabled LCDs for u or neither DLNA enabled LCDs... Hope u got my point
I had the great misfortune of trying to install a cracked version of a navigation program to my neighbors iphone 3GS.
iphone is total crap. SGS kicks the iphones butt, both 3GS and iphone 4. Screen is much better and larger. Has removable memory card and you can mount both drives via the USB. iphone makes you go thru iTunes.
I would never pay double for an iphone. What kind of fool would?
Sails, 16 Dec 2010DLNA better than HDMI? You don't know what you are talking about. Have you actually used DLNA?... moreIn order to use DLNA the TV must also be DLNA compliant and have dongle to receive DLNA.
How many hotels rooms have that? my guess...NONE!!!

-Almost every multimedia device has HDMI these daya, very few have DLNA
-DLNA uses huge amount of processing power and kills the battery
-DLNA is software only. It was easily hacked to N900 for example.
Have you actually tried to stream a 2h HD movie from your Galaxy S using DLNA? Not a pleasant experience and the battery is dead well before the movie ends. N8 handles this easily through HDMI.
Here is one of my favorite use cases: Have your movie collection on external USB drive. When taking a trip hook the USB drive and the hotel room TV to N8. Watch what you want. How would you accomplish this on Galaxy S?
its the greatest phone so far..much better than the iphone 4 yet its much cheaper....samsung rocks!!

N8 can only be called "brilliant" by a blind Nokia-fan. N8 have specs for almost everything, but it totally sucks on everyting but the camera for taking pictures, not movies.
N8 "Jack of all trades, master of none"!
I would like to know which one is better
