vodafone official release date 22nd october. And you can not upgrade through nokia iv tried unless your paying cash for it we will all be waiting for are networks in the uk unfortunatly
Have had a good play with the N8 for 2days it's a great phone with many extras that other smart phones don't have, like HDMI and USB port, which could really come in handy.
The phone is very responsive and pretty cool to use,will be looking out for it on release.
Good long awaited entry from Nokia in the smart phone category.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2010@ Sam : SAM i am also from KOLKATA and I want to pre-order the N8. But can you tell me which s... moredude... booked 1 4 mu self in pune but they charged me only 1000 4 booking it.. At a nokia showroom at wanawdi in our area....
this phone is available in end of october in italy and in most of the countries why is nokia delaying it..? sad :(
just preordered the NOKIA n8 from nokia.co.uk and what i find out that the phone will be shipped by end of october!!!! :( what a s*** !!!
why the rating is falling down? It's a good one! This is what is human all about 'NEVER SATISFIED'
i have just had a play with the nokia N8 today we had a nokia rep in today with it, it feels nice in your hands and the screen and camra is brilliant but the synbian softwear on the nokia is easy to use but very slow to react and the responce is slow from the phone.
the 1 i had a play with had 3 home screens on it but everything was quite large on screen so you couldn`t fit much on the screen even though it made it easiyer to use i diddnt think to much of the phone at all in my oppinon the phone was
slow between screens and options
slow to react
items are too big on screen
but it has good points
feels nice in your hand
the touch screen is nice to use
the camera is reli reli good with a good flash
Thanks WHeez.. Im plannin to buy frm europe Italy.. so i wonder whether i will gt one because i was planning to buy one separately.. Lolz Thanks Wheez again :)
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2010a symbian site liking a symbian phone? gasp! what a shocker! the only thing this phone has ... moreYea, thats the thing. They know symbian like theis own pockets, but thus may be biased. You think a review made by a diehard ip4 fan is better then? Id love to comment on the rest too but typing on my old E65 so maybe later
@ Sam : SAM i am also from KOLKATA and I want to pre-order the N8. But can you tell me which store did you pre-order from and how are you so sure about the price? I checked out with the Nokia Priority store at Ekdalia and they told me that the price is definitely more than 27000 INR and they are asking for a booking amount of 5000 INR. If you can tell me the store where you have pre-booked your set, I can find out for myself and if I find that convincing enough, I will also pre-book the blue one for myself. I actually want to purchase a new handset before the impending Pujas.
Wheez, 22 Sep 2010I'll post this again in case someone missed. Preview/first thoughts:
http://my-symbian.com/... morea symbian site liking a symbian phone? gasp! what a shocker!
the only thing this phone has going for it that others dont have are usb on the go, and penta band connection.
the usb on the go is too situational imo, unless you plan to carry a cable with you all day. the apps arnt all that great since most developers go with an OS that makes them money, so unless nokia some how steps there game up in the next year or so you wont see anything great from ovi. also symbian 4 should be coming sometime next year which makes me wonder if nokia will put any effort into its S3 lineup.
from all the videos i've seen via youtube about this phone, including ones from nokia world 2010, im disappointed. the phone is laggy in certain menus yet fluid in others, why? the pinch to zoom on photos is garbage, and the LACK of pinch to zoom in the maps is laughable. there is simply no excuse for nokia to make a phone that still lags the way it does, for the selling price that they are asking for, not to mention the wait times.
i was originally with nokia, loved my n86 to death, then got an iphone 4, love it, but i miss customizations and what not, so im going galaxy S soon and will hopefully settle on android for the time being.
for anyone looking to get this phone, dont expect anyhing too great, symbian 4 is where i think nokia will do much better but for now, there isnt anything great with symbian 3.
Does the N8 supp0rt Swype because all I c is it being sh0wn on YouTube wit the Android OS
i am in india is nokia n8 again delayed? if it is nokia should get award for most worst company of the year.
Mark, 22 Sep 2010hey i read a comment frm smone sayin tht with da n8 we gt a free bluetooth stereo headset..?? ... moreTrue for some places, not everywhere. I think UK preorders get a free HDMI cable or something (like the real cable, not just an adapter).
Try to see your local Nokia store, if it says there, its correct :D
