    Nokia N8-00 has a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 640 360
    pixels. Sothe Nokia N8-00 beyond the iPhone a lot (iPhone's screen
    resolution is 320 480 pixels) in screen display. I have found the
    ringtones of N8-00 here http://www.mobicomet.com/
    Nokia N8-00 uses the latest Symbian ^ 3 operating system that supports
    multi-touch operation, the label point bottom of the screen also proved
    its multi-page desktop switch, this mode of operation with the iPhone,
    is the same, however, the all icons are not placed on the desktop of
    N8-00, instead of using a plug-in to place widgets on the desktop.
    Although Symbian ^ 3 is much more beautiful, but we can see in it the
    shadow of the fifth edition of Symbian S60.

    I'd suggest you wait till the phone is actually released. The software
    and features are still a matter of speculation, and there's no telling
    what all the final version will have or omit.

    5th Edition has been renamed as Symbian^1, so yes, Symbian^3 is a more
    evolved version.

    Nokia have long since released the specification of the phone. Airside* it
    is essentially the N97 / N79 but lower power. the changed features are: -

    Screen - as above OLED instead of lower res LCD.
    Battery - not an easy swap, but lower power operation giving endurance.
    Connectivity - HDMI interface added (+USB A maybe)
    Optics - 12MP camera
    Memory - 32Mb on board + 32Mb SD
    Price - probably about half that of the iPhone4

    There are videos of pre-production phones in use and some of the software
    features, like a mouse cursor.

    What it won't have is the PITA Apple locking and other rip off tactics
    (apart from DCMS on the HDMI interface) that mean that the first thing a
    crapple purchaser wants to do with their new phone is jail-break it.

    What does appear to have slipped off is the release date from next week to
    October :-((

    Nokia should learn a thing or two from Apple- first one being NOT to
    announce all details of their phones 6 months in advance, and just let
    the hype build up.
    The N8's image also suffered because of a Russian blogger who got his
    hands on an unauthorized pre production handset, and wrote a scathing
    review of it.
    Imagine if they had just announced that they were launching a new device
    with 12mp camera, xenon flash and HD video- and said nothing more till
    the actual release.
    Instead we have people already comparing it to the iPhone 4, or pointing
    out that it has a slower processor than the Samsung Galaxy S, among
    other things.

    This is what they did with the original iPhone and it was ****, well short
    of the spec of similar Nokia with no 3G, Wi-fi or expansion.

    Apple are pass masters at selling vapour-ware.

    OTOH I am pretty sure Nokia will release this once they have sorted out the
    wrinkles, unlike Motorola and the MPX back in 2004: -

    With Apple, they use only a subset of features, but they do implement
    them so well that it works for the 99% technologically challenged masses
    who claim that it's oh so difficult to use a Nokia or any other
    smartphone. They've shown that to the average joe, UI trumps everything
    else. Simple example - Nokia has had 3G video calling for at least 5
    years on its phones, but this was a network dependent feature and they
    never tried to promote it. Now people think Apple invented video calling
    with their Facetime - because they hyped it to the heavens (never mind
    that it only works between iPhone 4s on wifi only for now).

    Similarly, the erstwhile LifeBlog on Nokia can be used to post to any of
    the popular blogging platforms, and it's been around since 2006, but
    who's going to hunt up the settings required to configure each blog?
    My N73 in 2006 came with a pamphlet that boasted the ability to upload
    photos directly to Flickr. My N82 2 years later had the same capability
    - but the settings for Flickr were not present and I had to add them
    manually.
    Much later, the iPhone gets this capability and the American tech press
    go gaga over it.

    Just having an impressive feature list isn't enough to woo the public-
    Nokia HAS to show how they benefit people in their daily lives, and
    improve their marketing.

    Yes Apple keep it simple [and expensive] for users.

    Odd worked N79 on O2 to N8? on 3 first time - can't say I have much use for
    it though.

    Well they probably need to improve their marketing, but they certainly need
    to improve their usability. My N79 should have supported VOIP using SIP,
    but rumour had it that it was slugged out of the phone to suit network
    providers - even on SIM free phones bought in Nokia's shop. A couple of
    upgrades later and an awful lot of configuration later (and I am fairly
    techie) and it eventually works - indeed it even works when it is not
    supposed to over 3G.

    Yes, some people seem to like paying a premium for their ignorance or
    unwillingness to learn a UI, Symbian is not rocket science.

    Somehow, the N95 and N82 seem to be the last really popular Nokia
    models. Both were built tough and people still swear by them. After the
    N97 fiasco, Nokia really need the N8 to succeed.

    The multi-media key fell off my N79 after nine days and was "not covered by
    the warranty Sir", despite buying it from a Nokia shop.

    It needs to be pretty bullet proof.

    I did once..forgot the provider's name. They supplied SIP settings for
    my N82, and after it was there i could theoretically use the internet
    call feature (theoretically because i didn't sign up for a paid account)

    I think they dropped the ball on quality after N95/N82. Started
    releasing buggy phones with creaky hardware, culminating in the N97.
