Scheduled to be released in 2H 2010, the Nokia N8 will be a media-rich smartphone and the first to feature Nokia's open-source Symbian^3 operating system. The phone's media features include a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, xenon flash, face recognition, 720p HD video recording, video editing software, an HDMI output, Dolby Digital Plus technology, on-demand Web TV, Bluetooth stereo audio streaming, video calling with secondary front-facing camera, 16GB internal storage (expandable via standard microSD cards), FM radio, an integrated FM transmitter (for audio output to car stereos), and Adobe Flash Lite 4.0. For in-car navigation, Nokia throws in free Ovi Maps Navigation with car and pedestrian mode. In contrast to many other navigation solutions, this package offers free voice-guidance, free map updates, and global map availability. Navigation can be used offline, i.e. map data is stored locally on the device, so that the user can move independently from 3G data network coverage. The handset will come in white, gray, orange, blue, and green.

Do you agree?
still uses ARM11 instruction set processor - slower than ARM Cortex

runs the unproven Symbian ^3 operating system - no guarantees it will be around in the long term, limited application selection compared to the well-established competition

No official guarantee about compatibility with S60v5 applications. At least not communicated in product marketing!
