Damian D: Thanks everyone for some excellent comments and feedback.
I just wanted to clarify that the images we [Nokia] have captured thus far and any that you find on the net, were taken using prototype hardware with software which is not yet finalised. This is especially relevant with regards to low light which has not been optimised at all...yet. We are working actively on that area right now. It's extremely interesting to read the opinions relating to noise filtering and detail retention. Thank you.

Some video settings requests:1. FPS selection not limited to 25.00 24.00, 30.00 - the latter two have no use at all (23.976, 29.98 please)2. Exposure lock for video, 3. Manual white balance, 4. Some control over contrast and colour saturation.N8 video application is unnecessarily crippled by these seemingly minor (I think?) omissions, making it really hard to use the mobile for real filmmaking.
