HD Frame Rate Improvement

I've seen mention on the Internet of an improvement in the frame rate (from 25 fps to 30 fps) for HD recording on the Nokia N8-00. Is this coming in an official firmware update or is this a hack?

Flagship Phone? Really??

It is using an ARM11 CPU. This is their top of the line phone? C'mon. Apple, Moto, HTC are all using Cortex A8 based processors since last year. This not even released Nokia is going to be their top of the line running an ARM11.

And the screen res is not even close to the new iPhone and Android Flagship phones.
Can someone please point me to the url where they refer to the N8 as their "flagship" device?
Information I've read indicates that the Symbian OS can do more with "lesser" processors than the competition can with their OS/processor combination. And have you seen the sample photos taken with this phone??? I saw some at All About Symbian. I was ...

It is just a different way of doing things. The N8 takes its aim at people who are interested in things that the typical Android user just might not be interested in.

The Nokia can do some things that iPhone and Android cannot do very easily, howe...

Google Apps

Will I be able to use / download Google Apps with this device? I am hearing two different stories from Nokia. Paranoid
Google APPS or Google MAPS?
You will surely be able to use G Maps (though I personally think Ovi Maps blow Google Maps out of the water).
As for the other Google mobile apps, I really don't know. I know there are a few that Symbian already had suppo...

Processor Speed

Is there a perceptible difference between the N8 processor and the new one gh processors that are trending? Rolling Eyes
Is this sarcastic or is the rolling eyes a mistake?
Either way, the processor has an overall lower clock speed but the OS is also designed to operate more efficiently than others (such as Android, etc.) It also has a better GPU than most to handle gr...

T-Mobile?

Will this phone be with T-mobile?
No, it will be an unlocked phone. That's why it has all 5 3G bands, so any GSM carrier you choose you'll still have 3G speeds

Sticky Main Screen and Calendar

When I return to the main screen from an app or another use, the phone freezes for about 30 seconds and will not take an immediate command. If commands are tapped they will then be performed in quick succession when the unit wakes up.

When I go to the calendar it takes quite a while for the days in the month view to populate and then to be able to write a meeting or to-do with alarm. I do have a very full calendar with a lot of meetings and alarms repeating for a few years.

Does anyone else experience these delays? And, have you been able to do something about them.

cai
is it only the calender that does that? i think it is because the phone updates and saves your calender before closing, and if you have years and years of repetitive meetings and to-do's, i suspect the phone has to do quit a bit of work.

OVI maps

I experienced trouble using OVI Maps in certain parts of the eastern U.S. Does anyone have a sense for whether the Google Maps Oral Navigation application will be available for the N8? I am parking my n95 for the n8. Shocked
I have no idea if Google Maps will have voice guidance available for the N8 but have you tried downloading the maps and guidance onto your N95? (not sure if it's supported on that phone or not.) I did it with my 5800 and it was excellent. It never had...

All 5 3g bands

I'm glad that someone finally makes a phone with both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G bands. Awesome.
I remember when quad band GSM was a big deal ... this is definitely a noteworthy accomplishment
Ya really, this phone is looking nice

Sad attempt

I said it on the phone specs discussion board, but this is SO underpowered to be a flagship device. Also looks like they they didn't really work that hard at doing anything innovative on Symbian 3. Not looking good for Nokia!
When you've got an OS with the microkernal of Symbian^3, it's so fast and efficient that you can run a more basic processor without losing speed. What you do lose with this processor is the high battery consumption.

Many S60 phones run on slower...

Plasticky???

I have never touched it but it is supposed to be mostly aluminum and hence light but very durable. I have not heard other reviewers describe it as you described it.
And that camera is hideous.
