Terrible UI, honestly after seeing how good android 2.2 is (even iphone's UI is awesome), i don't understand how anyone else can prefer this one. If there's one thing that draws me to this N8 phone is the HD camera, that is all.
WTF???, 30 May 2010Absolutely. Maemo was a step in a different direction for Nokia, if Nokia look towards Android... moreSo you clearly aren't a nokia fans or you even like them as a company... what are you doing here ? we get it man..you don't like Nokia now. What do you want us to do about it ? If you like Apple or other company please spend you time there..For your info: Nokia employees don't come here and look what you have typed and take that into consideration. Duh !
WTF???, 30 May 2010Absolutely. Maemo was a step in a different direction for Nokia, if Nokia look towards Android... moreI really like Symbian (though not much like s^1). And I wish it will never die, because symbian is a major competitor and still boast some features by default for which iphone or android needs applications. Actually most of useful applications comes pre-installed with symbian (or Nokia).. Symbian will give healthy competition to Android and thus future will be much better..
But I also like to see Android on Nokia phones (As a refreshment to users).. I guess if Nokia join Android then they will also include some more great features to android such as qt and usb otg..
My wish is that Nokia will make phone with android 3.0 . Also Nokia has ability to support their phone for atleast 2 years and in time to time. They supports their cheap 2700c ( Nokia's cheapest 2 mp camera phone) and also n900. Nokia had recently give a firmware update to their 3 year old n82.
But if I'm saying Nokia should make Android dont means I hate symbian because even if Nokia will make android phone I still choose symbian.. I just want that Nokia should only make 1 android phone every year ( or every two year, because they can easily give upgrade at the time).
By the way my wish will surely come true because after searching lot of webpages I have seen that there are also many Nokia Employee and Officers who wants to make a Android based Nokia phone..
Niraj, 30 May 2010Well I agree with you.. Nokia is supposed to be major Iphone competitor but they are more conc... moreAbsolutely. Maemo was a step in a different direction for Nokia, if Nokia look towards Android if for any reason the N8 fails to deliver, then I think other brands will really start to worry.

Just compare the prices and see.
Yes, i am a NOKIA fan. One of the disappointed ones. But i still don't like Apple and no-multitasking iPhone, with outdated camera, who became a little more competitive after last GS version. Remove US users of the Apple toy and...? What left? How many? Still. This is a expensive toy for stupid people who like to be fashioned...I hope ver.4 to be something more than just a toy. Will see. But after iPad-dontknowforwhatisproduced - ....
Just few more words - everyone has successes and failures. NOKIA made a big one with N97 and following ones.
Lets not forget where was Apple before iPhone.

Lets see what the Meego device will do.. By the way I like N8.. But it is a foolish statement that N8 will kill iphone.
WTF???, 30 May 2010It's laughable that Nokia fans get abusive when anyone so much makes a little negative stateme... moreIt actually starts out with iSheep, such as, I presume yourself, apologies if your not, bagging out Nokia products with no basis. Then Nokia Fans retaliate and people like you call it nit-picking.
The Nokia will succeed with the N8 and any other Symbian^3 devices they release. We don't need people, such as yourself, saying its hopeless and that Symbian is the root of Nokia's problems. You are just as bad as those idiots claiming that Apple HD (4G) will fail.
The reason I make comments on Nokia is that for 10 years I was a hardcore Nokia fan but over the last few years they have really not invested in making a handset that gives overall user satisfaction, considering that rivals like HTC n Samsung have provided great handsets n great competition for the iPhone. NOKIA believe they are the biggest brand in the world so they can produce any touchscreen device n because they are Nokia everyone will just buy the phone regardless. I'm afraid it don't work like that anymore Nokia.
Once again, I hope this phone proves doubters wrong. But I'll never hold my breath with Nokia, they have a knack of letting their long time fans down. For the richest mobile phone brand, this is unacceptable.
It's laughable that Nokia fans get abusive when anyone so much makes a little negative statement against their beloved N8! I like Nokia but I don't like the fact that the brand is hanging onto their big name status n bringing out phones which don't live up to hype. I hope this phone does well as specs wise it's strong but as I've said before it's Symbian that may let this phone down.
As for some crazy ppl saying the iPhone 4g will not do too well, all I can say is LOL HA HA Apple have one of the most popular phones in mobile history with millions n millions of happy owners, do u really think Apple will then create the 4g that will provide little competition to other brands? I don't think so!
I always say each to their own. I like the look of the N8 n hope it does very well! But for Nokia crazies to bash iPhone users n the phone with little to back up their claims, u need to take a chill pill n think rationally!
but as i seen, when the people introducing the phone,during the photo view,the time to loading was so long..
still apple touch UI is way better than nokia and guess what iphone 4g is on coming soon apple rocks
You can have the worlds best hardware specced phone, with the highest specification camera, best AMOLED screen resolution etc; But you've missed the point.
The hardware is NOTHING without the software to drive it. Why have many phones copied the Iphone style with icons & kinetic scrolling?
Probably because it (Iphone) has one of the most user friendly interfaces going and NO I'm not an Isheep or Iphone fanboy either.
I haven't got an Iphone, I've got a awful NK5800 which tried to emulate the Iphone & failed spectacularly.

It is said to have a sliding qwerty keyboard and look similar to N8 but with a 4 inch screen. It could possibly have Symbian^4.
Even if nokia make a upgraded version of n97 mini powered by s3(capacitive screen, 5mp with xenon, 1/1.82 sensor, hardware accelerator, same processor and ram amount) and call it n97miniiiii, i say this model is better than n8:)
3.2 inch, with qwerty physical keyboard is the way to go, am currently happy mini n97 users , just not happy with its battery life.:(
HOW big is your wallet??
"Well, Galaxy S shouldn't be that expensive." - £479.99 is cheap???
HOW big are your pockets?? Most are not big enough for a laptop, that is why smartphones...
LMAO @ his lip syncing! It's so obvious and it pees me off.
Anyway, it's a nice phone. I still think they should fix the design and menus, they don't look the best. (My opinion)
