Anyways this discussion is not appropriate here but what is appropriate here is, even though android is a derivative from linux it goes windows way in smart phones and symbian goes linux way, that is the difference and that is why android appeals to the mass market and people say symbian its less intuitive, surprising fact is even windows mobile went linux way in smart phones and they are now going in their own way with windows phone 7.

I know it does not have QWERTY keyboard, and also according to Gsmarena review, it has some video issues, not sure what are these video issues.. Now my question is, can these two issues be solved with a future software upgarde?

I hope your next replacement would be good and error free, believe me N8 is a good phone and it will live up to it's hype. out of curiosity how much did it cost for you, I heard it's 78000 is it? In that case you could have gone to sony ericsson xperia X10 if you are not a frequent flier.

Anonymous, 29 Dec 2010Who told you linux is not popular? It is popular as windows and functional more than windows. ... morei said less popular compared to "windows", in the pc world that is..
and yea i have some background in linux, and i luv it too, my main complain about it is that it dosnt have much game support(from developers..., they would rather code in Directx, tried Knoppix/ubuntu as a emergency os, and MINT 7-9 since its nice :), noob friendly too :P..
true linux is weak for the end user(pc/laptops), but while its a god in servers(security), im just saying that its NOT virus "proof"... if it was as popular as windows, we would c a bunch of viruses for it...
just like the myth that no viruses for MAC etc :)

Not from any Nokia outlets. Is it safe? I read smth like counterfeit goods. Anyway I can double check and avoid beeing cheated?
N 8 Dissapointed me.I purchased my N 8 through the Sri lankan agent "Soft logic" week before last and after using 2 days it used re start oftenly and agent provided a replacement. Same fault is there with replacement too.In addition to that there is problem with the mouth peace and the touch screen also.The second phone too handed over to them and awating there response.According to them they are in touch with the Nokia company.Remember local agent sells " Made By Nokia" which came from china.Fedup with N8 and the dealer too
