It's actually become an old issue here in the forum.if you try to activate a light colored theme,say green,you'll notice a reddish shade in the upper right corner of the screen.but try opening an application like ovi store,you'll notice it's not there.a lot of people make such a big issue out of it that when in fact this issue is very minor if you try to see the fully loaded features of n8. Still love mine from the time i bought it till now.
plz tell me what is the difference bitween ANDROID OS and SYMBIAN OS.bcz everyone tell that android os is far away from symbian.what is the reason for that?

From what I've learnt about the purple screen problem, it is caused by a faulty software driver which controls the screen.
So it can be fixed with a software update, probably when PR 2.0
is released in a month or two.
The same issue affected HTC Desire users, and was fixed with a software update.
All the best.
n8 or waveII i'm confused please tell?
I know both r 2 diff os phones plus there is 5k diff in rate but still I want 2 know.

The N8 doesn't have a LCD screen, it has an AMOLED screen.
If you have noticed a flicker on the screen then maybe it has developed a fault.
Take it to a Nokia Care Point, and have an expert look at it.
All the best.

You will not lose any data if you install this update.
However, make sure your phone is regularly backed up by using Ovi Suite, as there is always the tiniest risk involved when updating the phone ( such as a connection interrupt ).
Hope that helps.
yad, 16 Feb 2011plz tell me wht is Q1@yad.

Uniwega, 16 Feb 2011Hi Ray, look, I've got the update for my phone, I can confirm it in nokia site, but I cant upd... more@Uniwega.
I would imagine the difficulty your facing is due to server overload. That's why Ovi suite and OTA isn't working for you yet. Not sure why Nokia Software Updater isn't loading for you though. Maybe you could try un-installing it and then re-installing it.
If you have the time, keep checking via Ovi suite or Nokia Software Updater( if you can get it working ) periodically and you may get lucky.
Incidentally, the N8 will only let you use SW Updater on the phone once a day, that's why I recommended Nokia Software Updater via the P.C.. That lets you check as many times as you like.
Sorry I couldn't have been more help.
Best of luck.
Symbian will still continue to receive software updates for the next 3 years or so. All the promised updates: portrait QWERTY keyboard, new browser, 50 new UI features, new GUI, PR2.0, PR3.0, will all still be released.
Moha, 16 Feb 2011Ray,
Is that published or yet to publish ? @Moha.
That list still stands. Those that are in creation are still in creation. Don't worry, just a couple of days to go.
