011.012 (2010.09.18)so is it from the first batch or second? My n8 works great though...
thainese, 08 Jan 2011lately i've been getting Memory full close some other application and try again, and there's o... morego and get you device up dated. Have my n8 for a couple of weeks now. And all is well. Or try using an earlier version of of opera.
This N8 is the last 'n-series' gadget to run on symbian OS (S^3).
All future n-series phones will be meego based (until Nokia finds something even better than that).
But N8's PLC (product life cycle) gonna be longer than N97 for sure. Latter was phased out from the market even before it could celebrate its 1st birthday properly.
The point of telling all this is that this is the right time to buy N8 because N9 is still far away. You won't feel disappointed like i felt when I got my N 97 mini barely one month before N8 hit the shelves. Only if i could have waited...
can anyone tell me there will be a playstation1 emulator for n8?symbian^3?

hey ppl r d S^3 devices includin N8 gettin a S^4 update i.e. A meego update? M desprate to buy a N8 and meego compatibility or even getin some features like its UI wood b enuf to convince ne1. And y is d most trusted mobile brand wasting time in releasing updates i noe NOKIA dosnt do things in haste, bt den it could b a bit early, and why should N8 users wait so long 4 exploitin S^3 at d fullest, i noe S^3 is more capable den its current state. Bt Nokia noes wts best 4 their customers and will/should/atleast give it a try to release updates on time

Looking for a replacement for my samsung wave, tried n8, very nice camera but thats the only nice thing on n8. Ui is boooring. Slow as hell. Will stick with my samsung wave until such time i find a better fone. Maybe an Android device...
Gitty, 09 Jan 2011Whatz the type of screen protector which already comes with N8 ?It is kind of a Clear screen protector, but it actually not a commercially available screen protector and it is a part of the Nokia N8 packaging material. I said it is a clear screen protector because it is clear and gloss, i found it producing a bluish tint in my display and i removed it as soon as i got the phone (I never considered it as a screen protector ) so i can't comment a lot there because i have no big experience with it (may be 5 - 10 mins).
this one word pretty much sums up the whole of the nokia n8. it is an absolute brilliant phone engineered to almost perfection. The physical design, and the super glowing AMOLED screen is brilliant for playing HD games, movies and the LOT.
The responsiveness has not been a problem at all, unlike other Nokia phones which i have used.
However i feel that the features of the N8 are not being used to the full extent by nokia. although they have produced such an elegant phone, the lack of apps within the OVI store is an evident problem. this operating system is new in the market, but needs to be well presented to other companies to generate interest to make apps (including games) for the Symbian^3 OS...
why has apple been so successful in making people and companies want to produce application, is what has lead to the success of their phone.
Over all, it is a masterpiece of a phone, but its full features need to be taken advantage of to ensure that it becomes the success it deserves!
[deleted post]why not, did you know about croping? or when you make zooming, look what you get with 5mp crappy camera and 12 mp detalization. feel the difference!

I know about gorilla glass and i've seen a lot videos with knives, rocks, k... moreOk, Gorilla glass needs no screen protector, but there are number of screen protectors available for N8. Mainly two types.
1. Clear screen protectors.
They are gloss type, retain the picture quality of the screen, but feel a little slippery and finger print magnets. it is a little hard to clean the screen protector rather than the direct glass. so virtually not useful with N8
2. Anti glare matt protectors
Mate type screen protectors and the anti glare reduces the finger prints and easy to clean. Since it is matt surface it really enhance the touch screen performance. Your finger will move without any slips. Very helpful to use swype input, but it reduces the picture quality of the screen.
If any one want to use a screen protector with N8 i will suggest Anti glare matt protectors because you will definitely feel the deference in touch screen performance specially for swype in put, pinch to zoom and swipe gestures. Other than that screen protectors are not necessary for N8.
Performance of both the type screen protectors are the same for any phone, even for HTC desire, iPhone, SGS etc.
Does anyone else in Jamaica have the this phone or was I the first?
Nowadays all I have to do is use my N8 in public to be called a show off. It is so useful in so many situations. A great all in one device. The N8 is great!
on a side note i have been reading this page a long while now.
I'm still waiting for my Nokia N8 very impatiently coz of all the stuff you guys said and im seriously amp'd
but i am in south africa and here one must be very patient.
looks like they are only going to ship them out after the update :(
Is there any good app for n8 for reading books in chm format? and also please reply whether opera mobile 10 crashes frequently?
come to think of it, the n8's slogan 'it's not technology, it's what you do with it' makes a heck lot of sense. for example you phone might have a high res display, or a good camera, or a dual core processor. but think about it, are you gonna really use it? and i mean like use it to the fullest potential? if no, give it a pass. we all have a choice in this world people. it is not right to use some phone just because it is popular right now but you dont have the slightest idea on what are you actually gonna do with it. Peace
