I personally have never owned anythng besides a nokia (sold my n97 as soon as i found out bell was releasing it in canada, and bought an n900--NO regrets about that)... the n97 was good for dialy tasks, but when it came to doing wat a smart phone should be able to do in today's day-and-age, symbian wasn't able to do it. Now with maemo being such a success, symbian has been redesigned and takes many of the features that maemo has, therefore maemo is now being taken to an even higher level (i.e. meego/moblin) and symbian is now wat the thier day-to-day phones will run on.
and since this isn't an "n-series" labelledd phone, nor is it $700+ (like previous flagships), this cannot be titled as a "flagship". when the n95 came out, it was a flagship, the n900 was a flagship, the n97 was a flagship, but the 5800 was not, nor was the n78, n79, c6,x6.. those are phones that are part of a general series.
deep space bar, 07 Jun 2010lol too bad that's only the US numbers i does make sense globaly if symbian is still 48-53 % ... moreyea only us numbers but don't get me wrong i love symbian usability, connectivity and features like the carousel and ipod like scrolling on my n81 but over time it gets less dependable at times no calls will come through and other times it will sleep and i cant wake it up no matter what buttons i press. nokia lost a customer i'm going to android once i hear nokia customer service is better i might come back. because why do i have to call india to pay $25 to have my phone sent to texas just to have them send it back and say nothing was wrong?(this happened to me twice)

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2010that is the most unexciting design ever. it looks sooo... brick-ish! This should be one of the thinest touchscreen phone around, and if you can find any touchscreen device from the almighty brand being as thin as this one, let me know.
gam30toronto, 07 Jun 2010hey guys. I am trying to decide between this phone XT720 and Nokia N8. Which one should i get?... moreIf you want a "phone", get XT720, as Moto's special Crystal Talk technology leads the industry in terms of voice clarity.
Many people complain about the cpu. me too but moto said they will release 20 phone in 2010. if i can compte them it is now 10 phone in the market. still 10 to come includ droid xtreme, droid 2 and the metro pcs one. still 7 unannounce this can be one of the reason the xt720 have 600 mhz cpu. probably between the 7 rest, one or two can have 1ghz and support a 4g.
deep space bar, 07 Jun 2010lol too bad that's only the US numbers
i does make sense globaly if symbian is still 48-53 % ... moreExcept most of the so called "Symbian" users only use the "phone" functions for calls and SMS....last thing they do is download apps and utilize the "smart" functions.
And when will your almighty brand ever make a touchscreen phone being as "thin" as Moto XT series?
I think ill be gettin this baby.
I'd like to see a review, so that when this come to my carrier, make a good choise

andy burgin, 07 Jun 2010This just shows the Big mistake Nokia have made announcing the N8 to early, an not everything ... moreEldar Murtazin may be reason.
But Nokia has also promised that they will not release N8 before it meets the customer expectation.
i must say this phone looks sexy.. it looks like a mini table. the glos finish makes it look so professional and elagent. alot of people may not like the asymmetric design, but this design is unique and will stand out from a mile aaway. just look at the nexxus one.. that piece of garbage looks like a $30 HTC touch.. or a $50 lg touch screen phone. its like the world is losing its sense of creativity. Every touch screen phone has the same configuration these days, at least this phone is unique, and personally i think this is exactly the look moto is going for (ie. the moto back flip, that swivel square screen phone etc etc.)

i like Nokia N8 the fact that i have so many colours to choose from. I just don't like to use a phone where everyone has it and look the same. let's be honest here, many people want/have the iphone but i just cannot get my mind off the fact tht every other person (kid) beside me has an iphone. i want a level of individually eventhough all of them are device for "mass". Now the only thing that will make the final say would be the thickness of the 12.9mm of the N8, price of it (i heard its much cheaper than the n97 when it first came out)
I am using an n97 mini.. it's soo damn slow... and it was expensive when i first got it. but i still like Nokia phones... don't ask me why! on the other hand i like this xt720 too it's slim. i like the bulge at the side (gives it a hi-tech feel). but i don't like the back plastic making it SO CHEAP. and the interface looks cheap too... any more ideas? firstname.lastname@example.org
