    Default Re: Nokia N8 Overview - Part 1 of 3

    Its a semi-decent achievement from nokia, but the menu is laggy has hell and it has massive tearing. Shows how premature the OS is as of the presentation.

    Looking at the bigger picture with the mobile market, the N8 is really dated ( sorry to say this ) but the software is really pulling down the hardware. I will reserve my final say when my stocks arrive

Well at least Symbian^3 does resemble Symbian^1 in some ways... Well, to some of us here, it might not be big deal, but think about it, Syambian^4 phones will be out in 2011 Q1, and during that time Symbian^3 is still new, if it isn't upgradable, Nokia will have another software to take care of! They simply can't discontinue support for phones which are only 6 months old! What is the secret behind Google/Apple's success? Because they only have a software to work on, but take a look at Nokia, they need to work on s40, s60v1, s60v3, s60v5, Maemo, Meego, Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 soon. Maemo software proved success, Nokia should discontinue legacy software except s60v3 maybe for keypad phones, and bring Maemo/Meego to their touchscreen phones, hire better UI designers and phone designers, since most of their phones looks old fashioned, and so does their UI. I know this sounds much easier than being done, but Nokia you know what to do
    Very well said, its really sad to see such a decent device getting handicapped by primitive software, honestly on that presentation everything CAN be done with Symbian^1

    exactly, that is the sadness of it. the other os's android and iphone build on thier os and add on new features innovate or in case of iphone have to play chatch up in some areas, but not symbian, geeez i mean threaded messaging only now will be coming to a nokia near you unless you buy and application or use the freeware that is out there really they can't be serious that nokia will compete with the rest of the market. one strong point of the n8 will be its camera, its actually an achievement what they have managed to put into the phone sensor and such. for some it may just be the next best thing if they are photo centric phone users

    Symbian is the most powerfull OS in the market now. First OS to support HD recording and HDMI output was Symbian, it was not Android or IPhone because these OS ware made too as simple as possible.
    IPhone 4 will support folders, it will remove limitation on how many apps can be installed and have multitasking. Wow. My old 3 yaer old N95 could do all that.
    Android Froyo can now use LED as video light for camcoder, camera now supports portrait orientation, can install applications on the shared external storage. Another WOW. These is old staff, at least 3-4 years.

    Only problem with Symbian is that is was not a open source system, but these has changed.

    Noone has said anything about an inability to install symbian^4 on symbian^3 hardware and if the developer community is that vested in the device, it will happen.

    About your complaint on Symbian^1 devices being unable to upgrade, I gotta ask you a question, would you install Windows 7 on a computer from 2005 and expect it to run well?
    If your answer is "No" then thats why Symbian^1 devices can't be upgraded. It's a matter of hardware rather than any limitation of the software itself.

    Well said. And the question that immediately arises, why didnt nokia use better hardware in the first instance? To keep costs down. I wouldnt have paid ú300 for my 5800 even if it had top notch stuff.
    Just look at iphone 3g, it won't be compatible with iphone os4! Or htc g1 not getting android 2.2....list goes on! And its impossible to anticipate what hardware will be out in a few years.

    The video is terrible! The guy talks in such an unenthusiastic way and the video itself is so terribly edited that it makes a boring symbian even more boring. I agree that symbian has some advantages over other os'es but (let me repeat myself) it is boring. I agree that Symbian 3 doesn't bring anything revolutionary. They have just polished the current s60v5 and called it Symbian 3. Nice move, but people won't be fooled.

    I'm currently using Maemo 5 and I think this is where Nokia should concentrate the most of its development efforts. Maemo is fresh and easy to work with and has a great potential.

    Got that right. That video was depressing.
    You shouldn't put software engineers on these promo videos.

    I agree that it's the same old boring UI, but the real changes are under the hood like better memory management, faster networking, acceleration for 2D and 3D graphics, HDMI output support and Multi-touch.

    The N8 did fairly well in benchmark test that was posted here some day ago.
    Atleast gaming should be up to par on this phone.

    "The folks at FinestFones just published their Nokia N8 benchmark and our Nokia readers are really gonna love the results! According to Jay from MyNokiaBlog the Nokia N8 is 244% faster than Nokia N97, 90% faster than Samsung i8910 HD and the Nokia N8 pushes more triangles than iPhone 3GS, Droid and Nexus One."
