NOKIA N8 and Your views..
Okay, it's there, will come out sometime in Q3. What I liked,
1- 12 MP Camera with Xenon Flash
2- 720P Video Recording
3- AMOLED Screen
4- Symbian 3 OS ( though I highly have doubt about it )
5- Multi Touch enabled
What I didn't like,
1- HARDWARE, 256 MB RAM and 680 MHz, are they kiddin?
2- NO CAMERA LENS COVER. UNBELIEVABLE. ( if gsmarena pics are right )
3- 1200 MAh Battery and
4- 360*640 Resolution.
What are you guys thinking about?
Specs have been confirmed.

They sound very dissappointed with the OS. Looks like an android device in the future.
until this ****crap of plastic is out, there will be an even better phone out with probably android, xenon flash, super-amoled and 720p...
if the specs are correct, i am disappointed, but what are we talking about right now ? nokia always uses the crappiest hardware (hence the slow cpu)
don't confuse me with facts, i already built my opinion !
If they zapped it with some metal, 1ghz chip, 512ram or more, maemo or meego or whatever rather than symbian, then i may consider it. Nokia must know that this is 2010 already. Those kinds of hardware are for 2009. They just doesn't make sense.
Now only 1 word for N8 - suck. It's no more than a Satio with some added features.
If Nokia continues like this, they will lose the flagship war (or maybe they have already lost it since N96)
@brrip: agree. I will also go HTC and android (get 1 more). but i will still keep the HD cuz it's still good to use.

yup i'm keeping the hd for sure, i still prefer symbian, but in terms of UI it's just too damn lousy as a daily-use phone. with symbian^3, i was hoping that would change but the N8 is just a butt ugly device with everything our phone has plus a nicer homescreen. i may as well spend 30 bucks on the SPB shell when it comes out to achieve that.
htc on the other hand, has xda-devs behind them. official support is not too bad, though nowhere as good as nokia, but the xda-devs have so many custom roms/exploits. it's like faenil or hyperx x 100000.
it doesn't look like anything special, certainly not upgrading to from the i8910
But the HDMI is great, i wonder what movie formats the phone supports. probably not .mkv, but that would be a killer function
yeah agree again. Once my friend showed me his N1 with CyanogenMod on it and it's like a different phone compared to when he had just bought it. To tell the truth i only want a phone that has custom roms or give me the freedom to customize without too many efforts/troubles. It's very fun to use and discover. It's even come to an extend that i don't even care much about official support. the HD is 1 big example(though efforts/troubles are sometimes quite big; however most of them got taken care by the great community and talented cookers/modders).
About HDMI output, the HD's prototype once had it. but somehow samsung castrated it. damn
G9 now. it's been 1h15' am here now. i'm out
here are the full specs
