I cannot wait for this phone to come out in a month.....and just reading the predictions and the 2010 stats of smartphone OSs. Symbian being a great OS and sometimes can get a little boring, BUTT the good thins is that it's practical and solid. Nothing anything bad you can say about symbian.
im gunna be rocking the Nokia N8 in black when it comes out yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Nokia should not stick to Symbian OS or at least they should make another model with Android OS.
apple iphone still have some advantages over nokian8
the rich fart app and games app store, especially the exciting games
the apple design, elegant and simple, even the round front button looks hardly noticesable, meego phone should not have buttons in front view and no qwerty
apple ui and icons design, it is good, nokia cant do that if they want

It too offers that. Can't say about others though.
You're lucky that you got to check out that N8 though. I am gonna go to the Nokia flagship store here tomorrow and see if they have it.
What I wrote below might sound stupid to some, but having options is not obvious nowadays. I'd claim that if iPhone had homescreens that were somewhat comparable to the N8 (im not necessarily saying it should), it most likely would not have an option to select how many of the homescreens you would like to be active. If it had max of 3 homescreens, you would most likely be forced to use all 3.
A nice "feature" I found out today when testing the device, although it's more like disabling a feature.
You don't have to have all three homescreens there. I for one can't figure out how to fill out all 3 homescreens personally. I most likely will just have two active. This way you can just fill two homescreens and if you do the finger swipe action to change the homescreen, you don't have to stumble to the extra homescreen you might not have use for. So it's sort of easier "going around".
Could someone please comment on the below features if possible when it comes to the N8?
-Battery life (On moderate use)
I know that some points have already been answered but it would be nice to get some reliable sources to corroborate (Thinking about the Router Function and animated wallpapers)
Thanks a lot!
I hope to upgrade to this phone from my satio. But all the nokia phones in india have a shutter sound which can't be disabled. I hope the sound is not there in the N8 as this restriction is not mandated by our laws yet impressed on us by nokia.

Cant wait to ditch my Android (Milestone) for this Symbian phone. Despite some strengths Adroid is nowhere near as mature and Nokia hardware has a good reputation going for it.

Just like in laptops and computers for example. I've never had that fail on my laptop, so as long as it's implemented, I don't see why would it fail to work on N8.
And no, it doesn't work on most Nokias cos the feature is not there due to the easily removable battery.
