Nokia N8 Pre-Order Price: Php23,699

Nokia Philippines will have a media launch for the Nokia N8 on October 15 and has also opened pre-orders for their flagship smartphone, the Nokia N8.

The suggested retail price — Php23,699 (pretty good price point IMO).

If interested, click here to post your pre-orders .

Last week, I asked readers if they’re buying the Nokia N8 when it comes out. Now that the price has been revealed, have you changed your mind on getting the N8?

    That happened to me too, after installing the Camera MOD hack. Dunno if it is the exact cause.

    Nokia Care was able to return it to me within the day (since I sent it to them in the morning). They just reflashed it and it’s done.

    Got my new Nokia N8 last Saturday. Super cool phone full-packed of features. The camera is so superb that you can’t believe that it’s a phone. Super clear talaga ang camera, two thumbs up! With free 16gb thumbdrive pa at backpack string bag. Also lots of amazing features like you can now listen to a message in your inbox and so much more great features. Super worth it and so worth the wait! :)

    I doesn’t literally mean it will upgrade to S^4, but to upgrade S^3 to what S^4 is suppose to look like in the future.

    This doesn’t mean they will leave Symbian forever. In fact, this new plan will serve as an encouragement for those who find it discouraging to buy an S^3 device since there will already be S^4 and MeeGo next year.

    Since no more “S^3” and “S^4”, Nokia will be focusing on Symbian platform itself and self-evolving just like MeeGo, Android and iOS.

    Now that I have with me the N8 newly released in the country, looks like a lot of good stories await this thread the the blogosphere. :D

    and I was just focusing on what they might meant on “In fact, we will no longer be talking about Symbian^3 or Symbian^4 at all – it will be one constantly evolving and constantly improving platform.”

  23. Avatar for jeff jeff says:

    My Impression is that they will just build on top of Symbian^3, no more iterations of Symbian, Symbian^4 will no longer exist, the features for this will just be released as an update if it becomes available. aside from the announced phones, since they said they will no longer talk about Symbian^3 or Symbian^4, it looks like they will just focus on MeeGo(the explanation for Qt framework as this support both MeeGo and Symbian)

  24. Avatar for kannuchi kannuchi says:


    Looks like you are not reading the article you just posted carefully.

    It says that you can confidently purchase Symbian^3 phones as of now because they can now be upgraded to future Symbian^4 OS that are supposedly released for next batch of handsets only.

    It means that upgrade path will be like that of Android and iOS.

  25. Avatar for jeff jeff says:

    hmm is this a good or a bad news? looks like Nokia is abandoning Symbian Soon @_@

    Conversations between two different phone users:

    1-Hey buddy, I was calling you, but you didn’t answer.
    2-Actually I couldn’t hear that, I was on the road and my phone was in my pocket.
    1-Uh, ok. So, what happened… Hello, hello…
    2-(5 mins later) Hello, sorry, my phone got disconnected. It lost the network. By the way, did you play the new motion sensored NFS?
    1-Actually, games are for youngsters. We are grownups, we do the office works. So, did you finish the presentation?
    2-Umm, no I didn’t. Actually I was in the same party you were last night, remember? Did you finish yours?
    1-Definitely, man. I’ve got my editor.
    2-Uh, yeah, I always forget. Anyway, your phone doesn’t go as fast as mine.
    1-That’s true, but it get my work done. I don’t need a phone to go faster than me though. I’m happy as long as it doesn’t hang.
    2-Doesn’t your phone hang?
    1-Nope. Although the previous phones I used hanged sometime, but this one doesn’t. And you can’t judge this one by its previous models, can you? Can I judge you by your father?
    2-No, that I can’t. Hello, hello, I can’t hear you.
    1-Hello, hello…
    1-(another few minutes later) Hey, you got disconnected again.
    2-Unfortunately yes.
    1-But you bought your phone with $699, it shouldn’t behave this way…
    2-I know. I was robbed, I think.
    1-You still THINK you were robbed? I AM telling you that you were robbed. Today when we meet, I’ll lend you a set, you can use it for a while.
    2-Thanks, but when I bought this phone, I had to make my normal SIM a micro SIM to use in this one.
    1-Oh. Then I guess you’ll not be able to use your SIM in ANY OTHER phones.
    2-I guess not.
    1-Anyway, if you can finish your presentation by today noon, you might be enlisted to visit Bangladesh for the company deal. I’m taking my phone there, so I won’t be losing any data I have. Besides, while I’ll be there, I’ll buy a new SIM from there so that I don’t have to pay more while I’m in roaming.
    2-I guess I’ll have to either stick to my SIM with roaming and pay twice or thrice the bill if I want my phone data or have to buy a new SIM from there along with a new set and then transfer my data into that set again.
    1-And if you need, I can transfer my presentation to you through BlueTooth so that you can have a look at it and it will make your work easier.
    2-But I can’t take or send files through BlueTooth.
    1-Uh-Oh, I forgot. And you can’t also do multitasking.
    2-What are you saying dude? I can pause my game and my music player runs on background.
    1-Yeah, but can you visit a webpage and then minimize it and work on your contacts? Or can you browse a webpage and at the same time type an SMS while your contacts are open for viewing details and also you kept talking to your friend while you are typing?
    2-No, I can’t do all those things together.
    1-Then what’s the use of greater CPU if you can’t utilize it?
    (3 days later)
    2-Hey, I bought a bumper case for my phone.
    1-Good. What does it do?
    2-It saves my phone from breaking if fell from my hand accidentally. It also increases my phone’s network ability.
    1-That’s a good news. How much did that cost you?
    2-Umm, $199.
    1-So, in total your phone, cost became $898, isn’t it?
    2-Unfortunately yes.
    1-So, dear friend, don’t you now believe that you were robbed?
    2-Yeah I was. But I still love my phone.
    1-You should. I never told you to hate your phone. But my request is not to boast others just to prove that your phone is superior. Everyone loves their own phone. From now on, try to respect others, then you’ll get your respect back.

    Dear readers, after reading the above conversations, you can perfectly guess that the 1st speaker is using Very popular Nokia N8 and 2nd speaker is using another popular phone Apple iphone4.

    Much more featured smartphone? You mean an iPod touch with horrendous phone capabilities that sells for 40k and needs an app for every site you open?

    You really need an N8. It tags you as smart when you use one. It is the only event when your name and the word smart become less of an oxymoron.

    @arvee im not blinded… for I know Nokia N8 offered a lot of features than those overpriced phones… build and features? most of the blogs reviewed Nokia N8 having great build quality with good looks and has anodized casing means scratchless… it’s also feature pack..
    nokia developers know about processor thing but they use lower processor because it fits with symbian without compromising it’s strength and doesn’t consume much battery…
    Lastly, Nokia N8 is currently the best camera phone in the market! =)

    What do you mean unable to utilize to the fullest?

    The reason processors are overclocked because they need to launch or run apps faster than normal all because of their OS. Android and iPhone need this gHz badly because they are just like VMWare running on a Linux platform, unlike Maemo which is a Linux OS. Symbian is just like Maemo too. Isn’t Nokia intelligent to use Symbian instead of Android?

    Build feature, I myself can’t still say if it is that durable, but by looking at the videos with scratching tests testifies that this phone (N8) will be durable as expected too.

  67. Avatar for Arvee Arvee says:

    @Marky, You, yourself is a blinded nokia fanboy. No, Symbian doesn’t need fast processor clock speeds because the developers aren’t able to utilize it to its fullest.

    Good price point? Yes, comparing it to other smartphone tiers which is priced at P25k< balita ko may free flash drive pa.

    But build and features? Definitely not the best but you'll get compensated with the price. Or if you're smart enough than those who you call "fanboys", you can add a few more bucks for a much more featured smartphone.

  68. Avatar for marky marky says:

    @jamby you will know if you belong to the first 800 who pre-ordered the Nokia N8 int the electronic receipt you received after you pre-ordered. its here beside or within the tracking number– 20101008-185
    notice the end 185? that’s your rank in the pre-order costumers… it means i’m 185 so i can get the feeebie… thank God! =)

    A lot of blinded iPhone fanboys! Most of them don’t like nokia n8 bec. of 680mhz processor. FYI: Processor is not the only base for speed. Symbian phones doesn’t need higher processor because it can already perform well better than you negatively thought. Second, battery of N8 is 1200maH because it N8 has AMOLED screen which is battery-saver than normal LCD. Also, Nokia N8’s price in the market is more cheaper than iPhone. Lastly, a smartphone’s important function is it can do many things in which the N8 does. Nokia N8 has a stand-alone digital camera beater 12megapixel Carl Zeiss sensor with Xenon flash, fast multitasking ability, bluetooth that can send any files, can easily connect to any computer, has a great picture and video editing on-board, a USB-on-the-go which is essential, can be used with stylus for people’s preferences, and much more. So, does iPhone has that? If NO, then stop being blind praising for such an OVERPRICED INCOMPLETE feature iPhone!

    It’s your choice naman e. If you prefer android, no one is forcing you. But as a current Android user, I’ll switch to this one. It has better services. Free Ovi maps navigation without connecting to internet.

    As a busy person with a busy lifestyle, I prefer to use Symbian because of its ease of use. As I said earlier, it doesn’t require 1gHz+ to run smoothly, because it is symbian. Instead, it will need lesser to provide you longer battery life to enjoy the handset the most for the whole day or 2 on the road. So the features are maximized :)

    Many people keeps on telling Symbian layout and design is outdated, but for me, I’m fed up of iPhone and Android fancy UI transitions. It looks good, but at the end of the day, what’s that for?

    Even the battery is 1200mah, it can almost stay as longer as 1500mah on some handsets. Pretty amazing for the improvement of CPU and GPU in-built!

    And now… I am battling with an iPhone 4 and N8. N8 is darn cheap with great specs. Tempting…. Will I cancel my iPhone 4 order for an N8? cant decide yet. I will sure buy this one if my iPhone 4 order will be rejected by Apple Hk.

    Would also have to depreciate the BB and ip4 for at least a year.

    Is it worth to also wait for the N9 thats coming soon with the new OS?

  116. Avatar for Manny Manny says:

    Ya, good thing i didnt push thru getting the N97 last year, especially the special edition “Raoul” version–that was around php31,000.

  117. Avatar for lawreas lawreas says:

    napa OMG ako sa mura.

    based sa mga online reviews, the camera of n8 can match the quality and features of a dedicated digicam that worths 15K+.. not to mention the smartphone OS, 16GB storage, cellphone features, HDMI support,hD recordings, dvix supports, web capabilities and a decent processor with dedicated GPU..

    considering that n97 mini was priced around 25k last year… im gonna w8 till this phone hit the 20k below mark.. wow…

    I noticed that if you preorder with Nokia Philippines, the available colors are black and silver.

    On the Smart postpaid preorder (which only lists unlimited data plans, it seems and forces you to get one) also has Orange in addition to black and silver.

    Just in case you wanted a different color, remember that. If you’re getting one, that is.

  121. Avatar for jeff jeff says:

    I was contemplating whether to preorder or not, the green color is not available in our country while the orange is not available yet for pre-order

  122. Avatar for marky marky says:

    @simplynice coz Nokia N8 has AMOLED screen and is not battery-eater!
    Nokia N8 is already available beginning now October 08, 2010 for only Php23,699 with free 16GB thumbdrive for the first 800 pre-orders! So hurry! Just pre-ordered mine color silver. Available colors for pre-orders are dark steel grey and light silver!

  123. Avatar for avid0n3 avid0n3 says:

    Yes, pretty good price. Considering the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (note: NOT flagship phone) was P19,990.00 almost two years ago during its launch.

  124. Avatar for simplynice93 simplynice93 says:

    The N8 battery is just 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery…BIG FAIL! :P

    i think it’s a decent price for that smart phone… comes with a free 16gb usb drive too for the first 800 to reserve! Hope the phone performs well, i wanna get one but i have already reserved an I-phone via globe. But if the unit turns out to be really good I’d still get one maybe after new year… he he he!

  128. Avatar for daddyjoey daddyjoey says:

    medyo mura ah.

  129. Avatar for Rom Rom says:

    the 16GB usb drive alone is worth 1,500 making the phone 22k+ only. Nice deal but symbian is still symbian :p
