[deleted post]If nokias elusive meamo is so amzing, then why is it not in any devices? Sure theres a port to the N900 But nokia itself has posted disclaimers letting people know its at their own risk and they offer no support.
Also, whats this about not changing walpaers on the iphone? I beg to differ on that one. Granted it was updated to do so, but it does none the less. And yes out of the box you cant adjust camera settings on the phone, but there are free applications to do so (FREE) anyway, iphones are not camera phones, the nokia N8 is a camera phone, a rather good camera phone at that. BUT and this is a big but, Its not as good as you all seem to think. Pure and simple, it cannot compete with the big boys. were talking about htc, samsung, and yes apple. like it or not, these companies are moving forward, unfortunatly nokia are not moving as fast. Now just to clarify, im no fan boy, I just happen to work in the industry........KTHNXBI!
[deleted post]Well said Jazz. At least there is somebody that knows what is talking about.
by the way im a happy N8 user
ha. well sorry but i dont believe this. mokia cannot be best in anything anymore, because their phones are of low quality. i had very bad expirience myself with nokia e71 phone. now i know. nokia never again

Nokia does not put effort in sw cuz no good programmer works for them. Apple ios and android is king since they hire more programmers lol
AVP, 31 Dec 2010This is Nokia's best product in 2010. Unfortunately, if it makes sense to buy N8 as a photo so... morewait till the n8's successor comes out next year
"true zoom" nokia is bringing back optical zoom in their camera phone again just like the n93/93i :3 can't wait but i hope the design is not ugly and they use anodized aluminium for the body like the n8
The iPhone is good for gaming and to show off. The android phones are excellent for messaging/organizing, some office (those with hardware keyboard), and tons of free productivity tools in the market.
However, if you want really good photos and videos, then the N8 is your best choice for now.
I have long time contemplated and in the end I decided to go with the HTC Desire Z because it was more important to me to have a hardware keyboard and all the good implemented functionality and free maket apps, along with some decent camera functinality. The reason I went for the HTC was that in no shop in my town (and it is a 1.000.000 citizen town in western europe), and not even nokia shops did have a working N8 phone. I went into a Nokia shop and said that I am interested in teh N8 and that I would like to see how it works and how Symbian3 feels. They told me: "Dude, Nokia does not provide N8 mobiles for live demonstration, sorry, but we cannot show you a working device". That was it. I said to myself: screw it and then I went to the next big mobile shop and played around with several phones and found that the Desire Z was extremely lovely, so I got with the Desire Z and can't regret it.
I like Nokia (I have a XM 5800) but hey, they are screwing up themselves, really.
This is Nokia's best product in 2010. Unfortunately, if it makes sense to buy N8 as a photo solution, then it does not make any sense to buy any other Nokia's smart phone. At least this model is unique, thanks to the camera and may be you can forgive many drawbacks, but what about the rest of the line.
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2010My N8 sucks bad, it is just dead now! the web browser is so slow, it eats battery=just a few h... moreHave you ever heard of 2G mode? The battery life becomes about 100% better if you put the phone into 2G instead of 3G. Also don't keep apps running in the background. Have you also ever heard of phone updates? The update makes the browser much faster and overall better.
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2010So why the market share of the almighty brand dropped from nearly 40% to 31%, if its products ... moreThe reason is not Apple, Samsung or any bigger company. The reason is the black market phones in the Asian markets. Nokia has been the market leader mostly because of it's good quality low priced phones. But know the black market's cheap phones are decreasing Nokia's sales.
My parents buy iPhone me and to my sister and we happy to play games even we don't need any crappy playstations!!! We living in California and 8 years ago come here from Turkey.
Wow, almost 500 comments. I didn't know so many people are jealous of Nokia.

My N8 sucks bad, it is just dead now! the web browser is so slow, it eats battery=just a few hours standby, symbian is extremely complicated to use compared to Apple iOS 4 and Android, I love my iPhone 3GS and Sony ericsson X10 and HTC Legend.
A very good phone....and all the best for its huge sales in mere future....
