    I played with one yesterday in store… I’m really considering it… that n8 successor may never show up.

    • zymo

      Many rumors point to a MWC Announcement. Beside having an awesome camera,it will have a dual core CPU and will be preloaded with Symbian Carla.

      • MDF

        and then you woke up lol

        • RVM

          Well, we know for sure there was some dualcore ST-Ericsson U8500 development in Nokia for Symbian Smartphones. These information appeared before a burning platform hysterical memo appeared though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they announce N8’s sucessor with dualcore based on Symbian Carla on MWC2012. Full dual-core support might be added later in Symbian Donna though.

          • Luisito

            As much as I know Symbian support dual processor, and by extension (I think) dual cores… I just time for Nokia to bring Symbian a better hardware, not just something that can do the job

            • How did you know this? As far as I know, there is not even a single Symbian phone with dual-processor or dual-core.

    • migo

      You’re probably right.

  • migo

    For the record, regular price is $369/$379 depending on colour. $70-$80 savings is still nice, but it’s not as impressive as a drop from $549 seems.

  • Punching Bag

    $550, c’mon, it wasn’t selling for that much a year ago, that’s bogus.

    It’s more impressive that they still are selling it at all quite frankly. A lot of other US resellers don’t seem to stock it anymore, for example newegg amongst others.

    expexct the same for nokia n9,

    the n9 sale in singapore is very poor, i harly see n9 users on the streets, btw, windows phone is a big fail here

  • Ebirah

    Kinda mad that I paid $379 a few months ago but doubt my N95 would have made it till now. Considering buying another one for when this N8 dies – that way I can continue on w/out a data plan for many more years but I just don’t know if I want the same phone for like 6 years …

    • reptile

      $380 actually isn’t bad either. the $300 price tag is for a very limited time. most places still have it at around (or even higher) than $380.

      i mean look at tigerdirect, they’re trying to charge $480!!

      • Just Visiting

        Around $300 is what I paid for my N8 new, six months ago, at Amazon (U.S.), but now it is still hovering at $389 (up $10 from about 2 months ago). I waited, and waited for the price to drop, and the amount I paid is the lowest I’ve ever seen it! I got 5 devices in 1, which at the time, was a good price at $300.

        This device is over a year old, and no matter the functionality, there is no way (at least not for my money), that I would pay over $225 for this device at this point in time; even less if it is still available in 2012. And no, I don’t believe that Anna, or Belle, increases the value of this device.

        For the next few, or several, hundred dollars I pay on a Nokia device in 2012, it will be built in 2012, and have some 2012 like specs included.

    • migo

      Anna has brought in some annoying data plan requirements with registration. Belle, Carla and Donna might make that worse. I suppose you could always just not upgrade.

      • dr_zorg

        Source of that info?

        • migo

          HoFo, the best place for all your cell phone needs. Anna issues are confirmed. Worsening is speculation on my part, but Nokia has made several worrying moves away from having control over your data usage on Symbian, whittling one of the last OS level reasons for choosing it away.

  • Sun Down

    We didn’t have much advertisement here. When it comes to show, people here know it’s Apple or Android. Come on damn it, step up that presentation… And yeah. Pffffft, Twilight.

  • reptile

    Is it supposed to start 12am Eastern time? (I’m in Pacific time)

    • reptile

      Hey, it’s midnight now. I don’t see how I can get it for $300, it still lists 389…

  • Rambow

    dont get it, its gpu is chainese expire after u kisss ur gf.

    • reptile

      but if you have a boyfriend, then it’s okay, right?

  • Definitely not seeing it at that price. IN fact black not back over $400, others at $380

  • reptile

    I totally thought this was going to be the N8, the description for it was a feature packed unlocked phone that was at a good price. They hid the type of phone and the price, but when they finally released it, it was the 700 🙁

    F amazon. A-holeswere just messing withus the whole time

  • Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m
    going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
