[deleted post]It is a good site for the spec sheets and comparison but the reviews are good only if you're into what Phone or OS is popular at the time.
Nokia could improve this keyboard, however, still better than a T9... Swype on portrait will be good though.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2011That's the most cramped virtual qwerty keyboard that I've ever seen. Re-design it Nokia.aggree better use dayhand virtual keyboard with radelrama skin. nokia is so primitive

Still waiting for the search option in music player :S
we want in mobile phone.we don want to watch promo videos anymore.
they can never compete against androids and iphone os....
symbian should be discontinuted......
Android or iOS update improves the "K" button on the virtual keyboard. Let's do a review of how it responds. Oh wow, the "K" button is snappy, it sure is impressive how the "K" button uses the 1GHz processor to it's advantage. You can now easily spell "King" or "Kim". Oh the Joy!!! Here's an in depth video of the update: Then you have a 10 minute full review on how the "K" button is improved. LOL!!! Biased websites like this one never cease to make me LOL!!!
[deleted post]How can they make a full review when the update's not even live?

HD ... moreyou're wrong bro, N8 has the hd video processing, and able to show full flash and java in web browser and also many brand new games like angry birds , nfs shift, asphalt 5 and much more...
I used Nokia 6630, N73, N79, E52, E72, etc.
I love Symbian. I love Nokia. Bcoz Nokia is best in the best feature of a mobile phone. Thats call quality n signal strength.
Now using N8. Its gr8. I love it. Its camera, multimedia capabilities r awesome. Above all.
I m not saying anything about Android or Bada or IOS. I used all of them but symbian is still my first choice. At least I dont need to hold my mobile in some creepy way to make a call.
Happy to watch updates coming. Nokia should keep on polishing symbian. I dont think WP7 for Nokia is a good idea. Elop seems to be a trojan for Nokia.

HD ... moreYou seen so certain that these new dual core CPUs will be as usefull as the marketing tells, while you can see that the new LG dual core phone is not good as everyone thought.
Well, I'm completelly sure of what I can do with my N8: Take GREAT pictures, record HD videos with DECENT audio and really smart digital zoom that doesn't stretch the image, connect my DSRL cam directly to it with the USB On-the-go functionality, watch my HD videos directly on my HDTV via HDMI with Dolby Digital sound, share musics via FM transmitter and etc!
I hope you don't get disapointed with your almight dual-core Android.
Boys, lets get one thing straight. Ideas don't fall from the sky, lots of technological firms copied other pioneers work too.
Back in 1984 Apple's Mac OS started a GUI revolution on personal computer, but you know what, the idea came from Xerox. Mr.Job was a smart kid back then but he was no GUI inventor, he saw the potential, incorporated and perfect it.
Microsoft Windows was born with a 'C:\>'. Bill Gates may be the richest guy in the world but he ain't the smartest. He had to borrow (or should I say copy) ideas from Apple/DESQview/GEM/X11...to start with.
Problem with Nokia was the silly management. Being the leader in mobile phone industries, it had the chance to start many years ago during the EPOC machine era to develop the technology. Because of the arrogant policies, the slow turtle quietly over taking the sleeping rabbit.
The turtle won the race.

Aaron, 26 Feb 2011Symbian will be around for 3 to 5 more years so these updates are just necessary.How can u say that ??? Nokia CEO said Nokia intends to sell only 100 million symbian phones....Thats just one year sales....Also who's gonna invest in a platform thats dying ???
