I doubt that what all consumers want on their phones is a HUGE camera, an old OS which lets face it isn't that user friendly or have too many apps (i own a symbian and i am tired of it)....its cool as a gadget, but as a phone...i dunno its meh

I just want to comment on all the "fandroid" remarks and the Android users hating this phone.

I've used Nokia & symbian all my life but I stopped using Nokia/Symbian 2yrs ago (last phones N95, N97, N900) - as you'll all agree TOP symbian phones when they were released. I'm now using android (HTC Desire & HTC Sensation). Despite my reasons for never wanting another Symbian device, lets all be realistic here. Nokia are great innovators. The best in the industry (including Apple). This phone will definately change the game as far as how device manufacturers implement imaging in their products. Nokia deserved this. A single core processor running a phone with a pretty much perfect camera compared to the rest of the market.

I for one will not be buying this phone but my hat goes off to Nokia for the 808. A great phone with great potential. I hope it does them justice and brings Nokia back into the game where they belong.

Well i think is time to swap my precious 5530 for the 808! 3 years flawless experience. Durable like a rock!

  • syanmarvel

why not samsung used 'belle os' that has 2cores or even 4cores, that will last 4days battery life.. I like the Nokia Belle Os rather than android power drainer... :(

I believe the giant(nokia)has been reawaken and are going to make a massive impact in he future. The Lumia 800 is amazing and I can't wait for the lumia 900.

@android fans(fans of all companies other than nokia n apple) m a hardcore samsung android lover. But there's no denying the fact that this is a very good innovation n compared to other brands(all except samsung who did not bother to unveil its artillery) it really is the most innovative. So if u b fair u'll c dat nokia deserves it.
@nokia fans. Pls njoy ur company's success at this MWC WITHOUT tryin to provoke other brand owners by sayin things lyk 'android sucks' n 'where r the fandroids',etc. U'll c dat no one was tryin to bash nokia while v were njoyin sammy's success until nokia fans started provokin us.
Conclusion:
Congrats to nokia! But watch out as samsung is gtting to unveil its artillery anytym soon. But njoy for nw.

Like you guys here, I was a nokia faithful till about two years back. Like you guys I used to defend nokia to the very end of the discussion.
But then it struck me. Why the hell am I stuck with a 25k (INR) phone that can't do half the stuff a basic android or apple device can? And the clumsy OS? The non responsive RESISTIVE (why nokia WHY?) touchscreen. The pathetic wifi connectivity and the overtly complicated email and messaging systems?
And don't get me started on the updates. A 150 MB update which basically did NOTHING to improve the phones performance.
I could go on but the point is there for anyone with a brain to understand. The BLIND faith and the "Take my money now!!!" attitude that all nokia fans have made the company so complacent that it fell behind.

Apart from the imaging, what else is the n8 better than its android or apple counterparts at? anything? I thought not. N97, the N97 mini, the 5800 XM. ALL expensive and poor mobile phones with outdated hardware AND software.
Nokia needed that kick up the bum in the form of the falling sales to realise that its smartphones are really not all that good afterall.

And thats a good thing. Look at the Lumia for example and even the Belle updates. Now that is what it should have been all this while. Lumia is one of the best phones in the market. And why is it so you ask? Its because of Microsoft's revolutionary OS and Nokia's stellar hardware which no one can deny they have been good at from the beginning.

Its easy to say Nokia is the best and all that but for the past 4 years or so that statement just isnt true. I would like to add that as and when Nokia finally get their act together and produce a phone capable of smooth web browsing and with a fluid os which doesn't just give up if you use more than a couple of applications simultaneously, then I would be one of the first to congratulate and buy one for myself.
