I played with N8 recently. It has really good build quality. Its bit bulky but thats ok. Where it sucks bigtime is in the user interface. The UI is not even half as good as Android. Not to mention comparison with iOS. & btw ARM 11 CPU is so obsolete for a high end smartphone. I wouldnt call it a solid start.

I disagree with that. Symbian is architecturally more powerful than Android and the other Linux flavours. What Symbian has been lacking is a popular development environment. Nokia's major blunder was to discontinue S90 in favour of S60 (the latter having the complex Avkon UI layer). Symbian's Java strategy didn't really cut it either. With the introduction of Qt for Symbian; Nokia has a very good development environment which is already popular amongst developers.

Err... Symbian has always been outselling Android. The question was always the other way around; whether Android will topple Symbian. My prediction is that the two market leaders in the future will be Android and Symbian'; both at around 30-40% market share.

Google's move has revolutionized the way of adopting Linux on mobile platforms - which others have not really successful. The important step is throwing in a Dalvik virtual machine which free up the applications development in Java.

Developers know Symbian and wouldn't wanna double efforts on it. Nokia's idea of bringing linux into its mainstream wouldn't help much as Google is pushing Linux in its Android phones. Nokia really needs a more powerful mobile software platform to keepup!

I see no mention of NFC chips. Not in Nokia portfolio yet? Took a look at the TI chip for bluetooth... Impressive! wifi, bluetooth, FM and ANT?! is that enabled in the phone?! That ANT protocol will enable some good apps like heartrate monitor, running measurements and even weight scale transmissions... the N8 smartphone can very well be a sporty guy's phone also! Cool phone!

Impressive move. The only doubt I have is whether symbian^3 is going to topple Android any time soon?

The article gives a very nice neck to neck comparison between the smartphones, but Nokia N8 has not picked up yet that is the real truth. I think Nokia has not advertised the phone properly. And price plays a major role in smartphone market, when some new product is being deployed it needs a thrust.

WHat is the BOM cost like for this model (compared to other competitors)?



Radio
LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
