I saw this phone half an hour ago, beautiful design
i notice the plastic cover for hdmi, headset jack is with shiny surface, i wonder if it is scratch resistant?
Nokia should make it rough surface, i hate shiny surface cause it is easily scratched
have not had my hand on it yet yet, all i can say perfecr size, very thin and very handsome design
n8 made in china,not good one like nokia others phone made in finland.perfect product of nokia is finland.always buy nokia finland product,not made in china.
Cool, 15 Oct 2010Hi frieds.. In India i think only China Make of N8 will be available. So friends who is using... more U Do not buy Made in china,this is not excellent performance in every way,but Finland product is excellent one,In KSA if compare price china product is low cost, f inland similarly some high price,please buy Finland n8, Nokia is cheating by china made. Finland product may not be available in Asian countries.
this is way better if its on android platform but nokia is stucked with the outdated symbian OS
[deleted post]No. It's not. It only has a bigger screen. That's it.
X10 doesn't even have multi-touch. There is no comparison between the two. N8 wins by miles.

Apple sure got the touch area the best by far but apples are made for people who want style and are not interested in any kind of serious smartphone usage in any manner, thats why they continuesly focus on their style conscious market and improve gaming and style of the products..
Steve jobs is a person with another vision, he didn't think of it as a smartphone in the first category.:)

It was the very same os as was avail... morereputation is the most important. loads of people including me had used 5800 and since then never trust in nokia for touchphone. First phone always needs to be best. Apple and AT&T spent like 150million dollars to launch first iphone. It was not perfect since no 3G but enough to shake up the mobile market. Without apple, there will be no android and touch symbian device and winmo won't die too. Apple is leader remember? Without ipad, tablet is probably ignored market. now everyone releasing new tab. mp3 and ipod is indistinguishable nowadays.
For people that lived in U.S:
A guy from Dell.com says colored Nokia N8 (Silver, Green) will ship 10 business days from now. So I guess Nokia won't release other colors until the last week of October
The only thing that this device lacks... is its INTERFACE.
But maybe they intentionally did not put MeeGo into this device, for there would be no competition left?
Every mobile phone company would sue Nokia for trying to monopolize the market lol
anyone who understands the power of symbian will adore this phone. samsung and iphone's extremely vivid pictures spoil the naturality and detail of their photos. and iphone surely needs to know that video stability was invented! n8 is the greatest till
For all the ones interested in N8 speaker, here is a test comparing N8 speaker with deisre HD at arround 7:10
Guys get spb mobile shell 3.7 for N8 and you can see the difference (five desktop + many other cool stuff. I have been using this software on my Omnia (WM6 OS) but after reading the review of WM7 I felt it is the right time to depart from this format. I mean no USB transfer + NO USB flash disk mode and depending too much on zune :( . N8 is the king :)
[deleted post]This is possible when updated to android 2.1,but not much better,and mainly because android market is much larger than symbian 3 market.
I've used this phone for more than a week now. "My return to the Nseries" I thought. The design is really nice and on the outside N8 is really impressive. Too bad the ^3 interface is absolutely terrible when you start dabbling deeper into its functions. I constantly have the feeling I'm using a half-finished product. I regret the purchase and at the moment I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Why the mobile companies are in race of megapixel count. I dont think any user want more than 5 megapixel . No one is going to print posters from their mobile photos. All we need is good quality optics and image censor. Nokia can easily decrease their price if they give n8 type of camera module with 5mp. Now seeing price of n8 it is better to take one normal smart phone and one good camera with 10x optical zoom with rest of the money. I think nokia n82 had best camera with powerful xenon flash which was value for money. But only because of slow processor and software bugs made n82 unpopular. But i think now nokia can easily pack n82 camera module with good processor and stable software for reasonable price. I think it may happen in nokia n5 n6 and n7 series mobiles. But we have to wait another year or two.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2010feature phones are dead. smartphone war now is determined by apps and UIdead?
didn't you think what makes this phone so popular besides its Nokia name?
its features, that's what people are looking at in the first class
every feature added into such device is a + for such company
if it was made with MeeGo OS I'm sure that would simply blast all the competitors, there won't be samsung/iphone/htc/motorola/lg/crapberry headaches anymore.
but again, competition is good for consumers anyway.
Dwane, 15 Oct 2010Good comments my friend. Pls advise how we non geeks/techies can get these free (or hacked) ap... moreHey bro, i'm not a techie myself but things get well as u stick around on sites like gallery.mobile9..
It doesn't have a section for symbian 3 as yet as it just came up, visit the s60 v5 gallery and find for hackers like farshad_enq..
I've been using nokia e51, and those were the likes i use on my phone.
Nokia has a huge amount of black hat hackers as they call them and they would be generous enough to help u out soon so just stick around on those sites and u could just find the app of ur choice.
Some help has already been provided by teams like hx and sgx in the areas of camera and screen ui, just in case u are unaware...
