Anonymous, 01 Jan 2011yeah but give them another week or 2 for the delays, not to mention these informations exists ... moretrue but they already messed up since they pushed the release date for PR1.1
so they have to release it ASAP to fix the current problems people are having
deep space bar, 01 Jan 20112 weeks man january early Q1 nokia stated yeah but give them another week or 2 for the delays, not to mention these informations exists on the web if you dig deeper, and February also belongs to the 1st quarter of the year ;)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 2011were you looking at the 2009 numbers? I read from the report it says the "leading" ... moreLook at the link attached in the post. that is Q3 2010 which was the latest one available..
Post a link which mentions ur numbers... You look more like a Nokia hater than me a fanboy..
mohit, 01 Jan 2011in which month update will be given to customers.will it bring flash 10.1 .First update (minor).... February
Second update (*MAJOR*).... April/May
Third update (minor).... August/September
Fourth update (minor).... December or next year (if it's needed)
the second update will have new UI and OVI browser which supports latest flash player and HTML5, it'll fix 80% of problems and will add more settings, configuration and customizations as well as more homescreens and wider options for the camera.
there maybe critical updates (very small) between these minor updates.
Nokia made the hardware from the beginning and forgot the software as I see it :\
mohit, 01 Jan 2011in which month update will be given to customers.will it bring flash 10.1 .some time in the next 2 week all the symbianOS users that have the N8-00,C6-01 and C7-00 will be getting an update :D
Chakraborty, 01 Jan 2011you guys have any idea what policy does Nokia follow for replacements of defective units?
I m... moreHi, dude....I am from Navi Mumbai....about the replacement, I would say that I got a defective 5610 from Mobile store and they replaced it within Minutes. But bear in mind that we opened the box in their store itself...their clause was "If a piece is found defective, then the store replaces it if you bring it to their notice within 24 hours of buying it"
If not, then I guess you will have to visit the Nokia care center. You wont get the cell replaced but they will fix your prob. The warranty is void if the cell is found tampered....in short, only manufacturing defects are covered/repaired/replaced.
Finally, I recommend you open your N8 and check it as soon as you buy it. Plus, I strongly recommend the N8 over any other fone currently. The OS will go through major changes in a few months time and you will love it.
Hope that helped. :)

Company Units Mar... morewere you looking at the 2009 numbers? I read from the report it says the "leading" brand's market share dropped from 37% to 28.2%, while the market overall enjoyed a 35% increase.
Seems like the fanboys don't want to admit....
By The way i have an HTC Wildfire as well so i know what Andorid feels like and frankly i dont think its only OS or SW that makes up the HS you need supporting HW for it
N8 does have good HW and i think they will have some good updates/firmwares released i mean Nokia does that even for the oldest Symbians they did which is great
i have no complaints about the menu having same icons i think Zedge has millions of themes to choose from and make the Menu look nice
you guys have any idea what policy does Nokia follow for replacements of defective units?
I mean i have read people say they have faced bad service and stores havent helped at all etc
but some said they have got replacements
By The way I am from Mumbai India just in case
anyone reading this from the city has any idea
i am especially looking out for someone who has got a replacement done from a Nokia store for the same and got a new UNIT
thank you for your reply it is amazing you got 1000 songs really wonder what all you must be listening to (lol)
but as what you say that close to like 4GB songs and you said it was in your HS memory which is surely freat
i agree browser is bad but we all have a PC for that dont we
you have any clue about the video player ande how it works ??

pros-Camera,multimedia,gaming(has dedicated 3D graphic card no other phones has this except s^3 phone) wise n8 is best smarthphone beating apple,htc,samsung.
Check these link-
cons-N8 has only weak browser nothing else weakness.
Ram and cpu speed r good for symbian os as symbian uses demand paging which need less ram and cpu.
Sites like mobilereview,techradar,engadget,gizmodo has given bias,negative review of n8.they feel jealous or driven to do so by competitors.
Gsmarena is the only best reviewsite.
Chakraborty, 01 Jan 2011i was reading a review of Eldar Murtazin from mobile review he sort of has torn apart the HW o... morei've had mine since oct 29th :D not problem ever
but if your scared just wait till the first SW/FW update comes out and see what you liked about it cause 5 updates will be launched for symbianOS this year and they are gonna be huge ones which means
more gets fixed and in OS and small ones will be launched for tweeking and fixing small apps like
social and ovi maps
i was reading a review of Eldar Murtazin from mobile review he sort of has torn apart the HW of N8 & mentioned that after a while these phones will die by themselves due to something to do with EEPROM malfunction
now i am no tech at this but this guy is portraying that NOkia C-7 N8 & C6-01 are crap phones and will one day die could be a week a day a month but will surely stop working
reason he mentions is Nokia was agressively trying to get back into the competition and has not assembled these phones properly and made a mess out of them
Nokia mentioned there are some defective units but have requested customers to go to NOkia care for help
I am a Nokia user for about 6 years now i have used HTC my dad has a Samsung Galaxy
so it was always easy for me to compare these devices hands on
however i was really looking fwd to buy N8 for christmas apparently the reviews are not really customer friendly & i think is misleading
GSMArena says its a good HS but doesnt gove a definitive yes to it
Mobile R4eview says it is bad
UK websites have mixed reviews
and i am left a confused buyer
i personally like the specs and the games in HD
camera video i know its same old Symbian but themes can always make it look great feels great but back of my mind i am scared to buy it
is it really so bad
kingsthii, 01 Jan 2011what can i say, is nokia will never ever put more effort on design, hear our voice, our requir... moreinsane n8 has best asthetics and design thanks to anodize alluminium body.
it gives a quality of robust construction,and firmness when hold in hand.iphone4 has poor ergonomics,no sophisticated material(its a hell to use of glass in mobile) it dont give a firmness and no friction between hand and device results in slippage of mobile which raises question about the material use by apple whether its a iphone4,iphone3.
Note-throw both iphone4 and n8.u will know which has stronger body.ur iphone will crack into pieces.nokia phones are stronger and rigid in construction.
what can i say, is nokia will never ever put more effort on design, hear our voice, our requirement, life quality is increasing, we are ready to go to a modern world, why this rubbish processor and quality still come out and no shy to call top sales, what ...... i rather throw it into my dustin.....
the iphone 4 design i find quite good when you put in on the table and type on it, the glass on the back does make it more elegant, love it yahoo flickr app, yahoo messenger app and live msn messenger app
n8, there is no need to do hacking on this nokia phone, everything essential are there out of the box, lack of some useful social networking app and information app, local apps,
work harder nokia
