Only thing that actually uses NTFS is Windows, since it is Microsoft proprietary format, but keep on trolling...
wait for the samsung wave II. then you will regret the N8. eheheheh!!!!
deep space bar, 19 Nov 2010it was a small amount of phones i've had mine for a few weeks now and i have no problemsPersonally haven't gotten seen any of the problems listed here on my own or friends phones. Possible that some other areas got the faulty batches, but N8 is awesome phone.
Every single phone has its problems, but so far N8 seems to have lot less than on average.

Today, my N8 kept charging after unplugging it. I tried to reset it but the power button wouldn't work. This has A LOT of problems guys. I'm glad I'm returning it this weekend. I still don't know what to get, but I'm sure anything will do better.
My goodness, the n8 is plagued with so many issues. The worst one ever of all among all phones is, it won't even turn on. How can nokia mess up on something very, very basic. Why is nokia selling dead phones? That would only mean that nokia just releases phones without even checking if they work at all. How disappointing. Nokia will be dead just like their dead phones :)

if they are Fat32, i have no idea who use that fat32 anymore? If you bought extra storage usually you fill them like movies and all kind of big files so you have to change them to NTFS which support over 4 giga files.
If you go to your friend place and thinking to copying something and he's storage is NTFS you have nice problem there :)
I think this fat32 vs NTFS is not known for many people, thats why people reporting not workind extra storages with N8. Its very bad it doesnt support ntfs too, but i think its not possible right? like N8 cant support over 2 gig video files, so you have to cut hd movies to get them work, not very useful either.
[deleted post]N8 mate, go for N8. Vivaz is rubish in almost every aspect (except design and weight).
I'm telling you this as a Vivaz owner.....
No more SonyEricsson !!

But it does have 16GB of mass memory built in. There is also a slot for a memory card with support of upto a further 32GB. It also has USB on the go, which allows you to connect a USB memory stick or pen-drive or indeed an external hard drive if you want.

Q: How many will be affected?
A: Well if you look at the total number of n8's we have shipped, it is a small number.
my question is, How many have they shipped so far? does the Interviewer know and if he does he needs to let us know if at all he was doing this interview for the masses, but hey! it is a Nokia affiliated website so they are not gonna push it are they!!
Does the N8 come standard with a memory card? I am undecided on which phone is better Nokia N8/Blackberry 9800 Torch/ Iphone4? Any suggestions?
[deleted post]Htc desire ... but if u r too inclined towards a better camera then N8 . However these 2 fall in different price grups too ...Desire will be almost 100 euro more than n8.
But still i love my n8 :D
