yes, those images are VERY impressive and in a different league than iPhone 4S samples. Judging from those N8 examples I would consider it at least on par with cheaper compacts (probably thanks to very good processing, exposure, whitebalance etc).

I think you forgot to also say composition, content, etc, in other words, the photographer .

yes, definitely talented photographer.

I think you'd have a hard time telling those N8 images apart from almost any camera at print sizes up to 8x10.

I have read about some big magazines that used N8 images inside or even on the cover. So the quality is pretty good, even if a pro can easily spot the difference.

Of course, low light and action samples are conspicuously absent. Are these cameras usable above say ISO 400?

I haven't investigated them but maybe I should. I cannot imagine they do a good job at low light levels or for fast action. Probably some of them are close to small sensor compacts now in quality, as some of the cameraphones use same size sensor as in small(est) compacts.
