It looked to me like it didn't respond to the touch, and the guy had to touch again.

'peeps' is ESL english for 'friendly people'...

'gorilla glass' is meant to be unscratchable, totally shatter proof - believe it when I see it...

It's like in all symbian phones since 3rd edition, he opened the applications folder for the first time so it is loading content inside... If he opened the folder again it would be faster. But I still can't understand why can't they just use some method to solve this, maybe like in 2nd edition symbian phones where all subfolders were loaded the first time menu was opened. Or the best solution, to do this app listing while phone is booting up, it would lenghten the powering up time, but at least people wouldn't think the phone is "unresponsive".

Or I may be totally wrong about this, and it really is a bug

Work in progress

Guys I would really urge you not to speculate on the various demos coming out from last weeks events. I appreciate that continuing to state that this is proto sw etc etc may seem like hiding behind a blanket disclaimer but this really is work in progress and the various teams are working very hard right now to make the N8 work really well for when it starts shipping. At which point you'll be able to measure the real performance against your own expectations, needs and desires and make your own minds up whether the N8 fits those.

fair comment.... and please lookup old reviews of the 'before release' 5800, a very rough phone then, now very nice and mature...

Well, I don't know if you recall lukpot's comment supported with screenshots about N86 gallery issue, having thumbnails reloaded every time after zoom-in/ autorotation, and those thumbs being pixelated or blank for some time... it was quite bad experience. For time being I can only speak of N86 performance, and even with latest v30 this doesn't seem to be fully solved as changing orientation in Gallery, while browsing images, completely breaks thumbs structure, followed with hangs... something I'll have to inspect closely before getting N8, as this is quite annoying to me, especially for imaging device.

Cheers,
Miki

Sensor size & Megapixels

This is the first time I've seen the sensor size mentioned. 1/1.83 inches. That seems to be typical of a good compact. Sounds great.

But 12 megapixels from that looks odd to me. I've heard it mentioned that 8 megapixels is about the limit, and above that the image deteriorates.

This web page even argues that the limit is 6, but it seems to be from 2008, so have sensors got better since then?

The Canon PowerShot G11 is perhaps the best compact cameras, and Canon decreased the megapixels from the G10 from 14.7 to 10. (Both have a sensor size of 1/1.7, so a little bigger than the N8.)
