Hi All, Just a few questions..
any Innova8 user here around?
i wanna know more about this phone..
is there any pros & cons for this phoen??
Seeing as this phone uses exactly the same operating system as the Nokia phone's it shouldn't be too hard for Samsung to implement a 'wizard' type program for Internet connectivity bearing in mind you only have to enter the information once.
ng_lee, 19 Oct 2008can anybody tell me bout the Internet on this phone? I see a few comments say that it doesnt a... moreYes, Everything work fine except if you want to set up Yahoo or Google it does not auto set up. You need to input everythign yourself which is not that a big deal. I use my Nokia phone to look at the set up and copy to my Samsung phone. But about intenrnet I have one provider but after I set up it show another provider name. Samsung Center in Thailand told me that problem with software and they will have new version.
I am not srue when it show the another provider does it really using my provider or using the porvider it show on phone. Otherwise the phone is great.
can anybody tell me bout the Internet on this phone? I see a few comments say that it doesnt auto set up for the Internet and if it does it will show different provider name.and the email too, it doesnt auto set. Can anyone who the phone please try n tell me bout this. Does the phone support flash lite? Please please help me I really really want to buy this phone but want to know those problems first. Thanks millions thanks.
Indeed a very fantastic phone. I have a samsung E250 but i wanted to shift to Nokia N95 8GB. After browsing Samsung i8510 INNOV8, it was pointless for me to shift. It's only that in our country ZAMBIA, it's not yet available. But once i chance it, i will go for it though the price rating is high. Am seeing myself to be a Samsung fan for life. Samsung, you are evolving with these two phones, Samsung i8510 INNOV8 and i900. You are the best so far. Keep it up. I like you????????
this phone is nice. i'm a nokia fan but don't get me wrong i didn't vote 1 for this. i like this phone, but a bit pricey ^^ costs me a month's salary. =P i'll just wait until price comes down.

The INNOV8's software must be updated! Its having weird problems since its first release... this is a bad sign for the phone's worst case scenarios hehehe! But this is a REALLY BETTER phone than the N96 or any smartphone out in the market. Samsung really has evolved!
... though the phone is PRICEY! i'll wait for its price to go down till my pockets can afford this phone. ^^
nick, 17 Oct 2008what do you lot think of the innvo8? I think this phone is the clear winner vs the N96 which i... moreWhen the N95 first came out it was a terrible phone (poor battery life and reception issues), it wasn't until the software had been sorted over a few updates that it started working properly.
The N96 has also required it's first update.
Symbian isn't exclusive to Nokia, SonyEricsson had Symbian phones years ago (p800 etc).
Samsung have now had a few Symbian phones, I think they started with the i450.
