Stopped for a while because when they made the shift to 2.0, the pc program deleted all my cards when I tried to sync. Never again will I rely on silly processes that need internet connection. I'd rather backup and restore locally.

Does the web version of Anki work with Opera Mini? I can tell you right away not to count on the built-in browser, and Opera Mobile never worked properly for me. But I've used Opera Mini on this and on my previous phones and I'm just used to it. As for the apps, Symbian people have a saying "we have a bookmark for that" :-) I actually tried the Instagraph Uploader app for Symbian but after a day they didn't allow me to log in or register any more probably because they don't support Symbian officially. And... Who cares? I get a phone with an amazing camera and I'm supposed to ruin my photos with some silly filters and upload that for all the world to see? Nopes. :-)
Yes, new "smart"phones got people used to having a constant internet connection, but I don't need anything of the sort. I already pay for internet on my PC and it's flat. And I don't need anyone tracking me. I'm using FB Mobile with Opera Mini and no problems with that. Yes, only calls, and that's the only thing I really miss, since Skype stopped supporting Symbian I only have Nimbuzz and Fring left but most people only know about Skype and it's hard to persuade them to try anything else. Grrr. :-)

> In reply to MdN8 @ 2014-11-20 19:44 from B}QA - click to readThose two would be more than enough for me. There is a web version for anki but I hate always online conn and the alternatives available either have spacings that is not good and/or have no decent mass import for thousands of questions.

And it's also funny how ppl diss symbian for lack of apps when most of those "awesome apps" for android/ios require internet connection. I mean, why a need for INSTAGRAM app when you could just allow uploads on instagram.com aka a website. haha.

My friend had to download FB messenger app for iphone because he cannot send private message when accesing m.facebook.com on his safari browser. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA. Even my dead n78 can do that with opera mini only. Just no voice call but still..... haha

Well, developers... They are like robots. Or maybe like sheep. :-) If 1000 make the same type of app for some platform, there will be 2000 "me too" ones too. But if nobody makes it, no one wants to be the first. I have a feeling that the remaining Symbian developers earn quite a bit more than a million iOS and Android developers, simply because there's no competition and the users have to buy from them. Let's see what Opera Store gives us. Right now they have a million of mostly useless apps, but I hope to see some real developers go there and continue the support. And if that means that Opera Mini keeps getting support I'm not complaining as it's pretty much the only internet-related thing I need, both in Symbian and Java version. Looks like UC stopped developing for Symbian and some sites don't render well any more, but Opera Mini still works like a charm.
Not an expert in anime, though I've seen some on 7ba.ru but chopped to bits, so I guess they aren't "complete". Glad you managed to find what you need. :-)

For ex. Anki multimedia flashcards and Mindmapping apps. Everything else can go to heck.

Funny, but I somehow managed to find sources for 360p videos for my anime fix. Something that is hard to come by on sites like *those that are not allowed here hehe* since most of the complete ones are at 720p.

I tried other phones too, but when I try the iPhone I play with it for 5 minutes, see what it can do, put it down and forget about it, boring phone. I try Android, it's OK, but I put it down and don't miss it either. But I always have an excuse to do one more thing with my N8, just can't let it go. Except when it needs to be charged. :-)

As for videos, I just stick with mp4 and it can play pretty much any of them, didn't have many problems, maybe one video out of 50. Didn't try too many other formats. And 360p is actually the easiest one to get, you have YouTube downloaders for the N8 and they give you mp4 in resolution of your choice, plus I have a YouTube download extension in Firefox which also gives 360p or 720p mp4. The N8 plays them without problems. 3gp goes too, but not many other formats although I haven't experimented too much.

Hi, everyone. Yeah I made a mistake about lack of amoled and corrected it a few posts later to CBD. Now that the store is moving to opera like what i was suggesting a while back, I'm reconsidering. Nokia N1 can wait.

I was just wondering if the pink ones are free from defective mobo and if anybody can post what parameters to consider/avoid when looking to play 480p/720p videos? Bec 360p are hard to come by. Thanks.

These Clear Black screens were introduced after the N8 was introduced. It would have been great if the N8 also had Clear Black but the screen is still very nice.

I'm sort of sorry it has "N" in the name as it's nothing like the N-Series, like they want to milk some extra money from the old nostalgic users. And I don't think Nokia will ever make phones again, which they more-less confirmed, and all their best people, including the camera team, are with Microsoft now.

My Nokia N8 was already reprogram because of the virus. Is it possible that the original features especially the camera and the processor will be back again? I love my Nokia N8.
