elidon, 13 Dec 2010I have my n8 from 3 weeks now from rogers canada and i was a little scary about differnt pessi... morei got mine a week before rogers got is and mine is dark grey and i'm on WindMobile
best thing ever
rogers messed up the phone again try and see if you can unbrand or see if you if works on WindMobile or Mobilicity and get a plan on their network
it's worth the network switch
i switched from almost a year ago and i just look at the big 3 and laugh as i pass by XD
i don't even go to a my own carriers store anymore
I have my n8 from 3 weeks now from rogers canada and i was a little scary about differnt pessimst commets posted and cause my n8 was made in China, but so far and i have resetted more than 7-8 time my phone just to have quickoffice premier working in it, I'm positively surprise about camera, document editor, media programs, OTG, without speaking about the commun use as a phone(actually i don't use it for internet browsing and messaging so I can't have an idea about it). I think is just a question of knowing the phone and get used to. I can compare to other phones companies, the only thing that i'm very satisfied with my n8, and I don't get so easy.
Just seen this over at mynokiablog.com, thought you fellow N8 users would like to see it if you haven't already:
Video collection: 30 FPS Nokia N8 video samples from the community
All videos in the link look absolutely stunning, I don't think I'll be needing anymore than just my N8 when out and about taking photos & videos.
[deleted post]No phone can go to network if is in OFFLINE mode
Neither open ANY site in ANY browser!
If you do not believe, CHECK http://yfrog.com/0sspoofedj
Or check on first video 16 second
Mercenaries payed by Samsung or Apple.
Stop trolling with fake videos. Take N8 in store and check.
Then.. then you will be on N8 side.
Believe or not, TRY!
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2010please does the N8 comes with keyboard, not the touch screen keyboard?not to be rude but it's called the E7
Try this browser game, it is a simulation of real life,
You have ability to fight for your country, write and edit newspapers, to be president of the country, to be minister, ambassador, economist, businessman and lots of other things come and see for yourself
please does the N8 comes with keyboard, not the touch screen keyboard?
Official Skype app now on N8! Great except for no video call support:(

Man be reasonable ! looool
Dear all friends,
I had the opportunity to hold Nokia N8 in my hand and to go through it for few minutes and the review I’ve got to say about my experience is pretty bad. Nokia N8 used to be my dream phone, but it no longer is. But still, it is a wonderful device with the best ever camera came with a mobile so far. Well, I’ll simply list out the pros and cons of that mobile so that you may compare/decide whether I’m reasonable or not..
## It’s fast (What Android fanboys tell about Symbian^3 being slow is bullshit. Application start times are great and overall system is pretty faster than S60 V5. And believe me when I say, this processor and small RAM is more than enough for Symbian^3 to run so many applications…
## Camera is an absolute value (This I don’t have to tell anybody… Right…?) It detects faces so fast and the photos – when checked in a PC, are really awesome…!
## Sunlight legibility has been so much improved than old touch screen mobiles of Nokia
## Battery life is (said to be) wonderful. (This is not my personal experience though I trust the owner. He said, even though the battery capacity is lower than 5800 battery, the life time of a single charge is really good compared with the stuff it does…)
## Watching videos is a very cool experience…! (Seeking here and there is very quick.)
## Symbian^3 could be a multi tasking monster. It could be very energy efficient too. But still it needs so many improvement by means of modernity, functionality, effects etc.. (It’s too much similar to S60 V5 which is kind of boring now…)And there are so many bugs to be fixed as well.
## Low Screen resolution is really noticeable.. (Believe me guys… If you’ve used Nokia 5530 which has the best Screen Resolution of all Nokia’s so far, then you Will notice that difference in a second. If you’re going to move from Apple, then also you’ll notice that N8 has poor resolution.)
## AMOLED is nowhere near to Samsung Super Amoled….! (Not even close)
## Compared to the size of the phone, the size of the screen is too small. And the 3 icon wide same old 5800 menu style is really really boring.
## Music is cool but NOT great…! (I know this will be kind of surprising to you guys… But believe me, I have a good ear and I know what’s crystal clear music… Nokia N8 Music has some serious issue not been that great as Nokia Xpress Music line up…) I compared N8 output (not loudspeaker) with my good old 5530 and surprised to know, 5530 Music quality is not only louder, but also way better than N8 Music out put. (This is the most crucial mistake Nokia has done to N8. Even though it’s a multimedia monster, everything’ll be useless if the quality of Music is poor…) Besides, Music player doesn’t support Custom/manual presets…! (Ridiculous decision from Nokia stupid software Engineers…!)
I only had half an hour to check all those out… So I could be wrong on my little experience… But some guy may find this comment useful… (Specially a Guy like me, who really love Symbian OS more than Android or Apple…)
As for myself, under the circumstance, I’d better just wait some little more time until next nokia Music phone comes out with better resolution and a decent camera as well… (Because I don't like either Apple or Samsung... Nokia was and always has been my one and only choice because of it's durability and wonderful Symbian OS...)
