Flagship Phone? Really??


Jun 14, 2010, 3:29 PM
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 mightily impressed.

I want this phone soooo bad, but I do not have $800

You won't need $800. It should be under $500 unlocked in the USA.

By the time you pay export taxes and factor in the shipping I wouldn't be surprised if it's $800. I can see it costing at least $700. A year after it's out it may be reduced to $500.

It would be nice to see it with 512mb of ram and a 1Ghz processor. At least give it the N900's 800 Mhz processor. Then it would truly be a flagship device.

I will gladly sell mine for $800USD. I'll have ~$560USD in it when it arrives. Then I'll buy another or wait for the MeeGo device that is rumoured to be announced Q4 of this year.

Right now (12/17/2010) it is available all over the Web at $449.00. At that price, it might very well provide competition for people looking at top of the line Android or iPhone 4.

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, however. Including those dongles in the retail box is a sign of where Nokia users have gone in relation to iPhone and Android.

I understand what the original poster means about the A8. The A8 is great. But remember that even in the iPhone, the ARM processor is clocked down to preserve battery life. When manipulating menus, I am not sure that someone holding the Nokia would see any reason to prefer the iPhone or the Android.

I am an iPhone user (a heavy user) who still sees quite a bit of u...
