So everything you do now, you will always be able to do. Maybe store will be shut down at some point. That i don't know, so you will need to have allot of cracked apps. As for maps, this is a thing i always wandered, if i bought a phone with life time maps free updates, but now Nokia is no more, who will give a ... about us and our symbian's? This a question Nokia has to answer. Anyway, i don't think i will be having my n8 till 2016...
i just love n8, i m using nokia since 2002 and its very sad they killed symbian. And if the nokia bosses have brains they should have opt for android and not windows. Nokia with symbian was the best. But now its all over guys....love nokia love symbian..... :(
This Nokia N8 will be my last Nokia, as the things I need are unavailable on Nokia's now.
I can't get any BBC I-Players to work on my Nokia N-8, or any of the applications I need.
I think they made a big mistake going with Microsoft, & an even bigger mistake not using the Android Platform.
I tried Windows 8 on a PC, it was as bad as Vista, which was also crap.
Funny enough, I just found out used n8 are nearly as cheap as the other symbian 3 phones. Hehe.
Too bad mobilefun's N8 case with a built in charger is discontinued. Would have been a huge help.

Most YouTube downloaders will give you an option to download 360p mp4 which is perfect for this display. Even HD videos can be played, but not all...

They stopped making it even before this move, but there is still support until 2016, Nokia Store, various websites etc. Symbian is maintained by a company called Accenture which isn't owned by Nokia or Microsoft. There will be not many new apps or big updates, but if you really like this phone get it while you still can.
Comparing to wp Symbian phone is much better because no java in wp phones.u need java when you download something directly from browser so be careful about wp.my opinion is Symbian OS phone are much more better than wp.
with this new move from Nokia to MS, can you guys still advise me to purchase a Nokia N8 cos I so much Love the damn phone.
or what other phone can you advise I buy that has the real qualities/features/specs as Nokia N8. I need to get a good phone.
what is the HOPE for the Future of Nokia Symbian Users?
some video format doesnt play by builtin video player. Is there any player softwere that will play all video format?
I have downloaded smart movie player but failed to install. Plz say something....

Generally the 701 is more modern (Belle Fp2), faster (processor and RAM), brighter display (better in sunlight), has removable battery and dual LED which can be used as a torch. But the camera is worse, some small features are different and it looks more like a woman's phone. :-) I don't jump into trends either, this is my first touch screen and I got it 6 months ago. A couple of years ago I was still using a flip phone, and I was happy with it. :-)
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2013Hi friends, can u plz suggest an application for video calling except Fring. Hi,
There's not much else. Maybe Movicha (http://www.movicha.com/symbian.html) or Octrotalk (in Nokia Store) but they say they don't work too well.
So much doom and gloom and morose thoughts – and Pain. I feel as if I've lost a beloved, trusted, sturdy, reliable and capable friend. That is what the N8 is to me and it really pains because it is not like losing your car keys because you always have a spare for that. Why did Nokia have to do this terrible thing? With one stroke of the pen it has brought so much depression to N8 fans, so much uncertainty about its replacement. But not to worry, when one door closes, another opens. The competition will be so stiff among the giants that I think soon, there will be so many new models to choose from, it will have us dizzy.
Since Wednesday when I read about the deal between Nokia and MS, I think I’ve lost ten pounds worrying what will happen to the contents of my phone. Will all the apps go dead when they finally pull the plug off from the life support system, supposedly in 2016? Anyone can tell me what will happen? Is it that I will be able to only make calls and texts on my N8? Because I would not like to know that I should have just remained with my old 6230i. I think that well, at least the camera will be fully functional
Hi friends, can u plz suggest an application for video calling except Fring.
I'm looking for a symbian 3 phone. How does this compare to nokia 701 performance (not the camera)? 808 is too expensive.
I don't jump into trends. Used a 3230 during touchscreen era and n78 during symbian 3 era.
Guys, you are all aware that this is an old phone so your only choice is other peoples' cfw. If you are worried about the lack of apps, just get a mini tablet from the competition. Nokia and an ipod/android tab is cheaper than an iphone.
K.K., 06 Sep 2013Hi N8 users, i am the proud owner of this legendary smartphone. But now as We all know, MS has... moreYes K.K you are correct Well we can just hope for good and well being done.... I dont Know what the hell is going with Nokia First they ditched Symbian I thot steven Elop is gone mad but looking the progress made by nokia with 20 Lumia Series I thot well Every one should adapt a change and they tried and they are doing good now.
But WTF is this you just sold your own House.... How can you do this... Unbelieveable
the best phone ever i got...which has best photo quality. i am using my nokia n8 phone for 2 and half year and still i am using it. i didnt face a single problem regarding this phone.
AnonD-172944, 05 Sep 2013Can Nokia N8 play High definition games with 3D Graphics? Can it play asphalt 6: adrenaline ... moreIt does play Asphalt 6 Adrenaline, but the game selection is somewhat limited. It was released back in 2010, remember.
Hi N8 users, i am the proud owner of this legendary smartphone. But now as We all know, MS has takenover Nokia, So now m worried about the latest symbian update which was to come probably til end of this year,according to an article on the net. It said that belle refresh is not the last update for symbian cells. But now, nothing can be done except waiting & hoping for the best.

Today i was thinking about what can i get when my Lovely N8 needs to retire and started to panic. There is nothing that can replace a Nokia phone. The only one to get close to it in my thoughts was the new Blackberry. Still, they have no good camera and the latest model which i loved before i touched it (cause after i touched it was just to darn light for me, i need some heaviness in there, otherwise it feels to cheap) has gone to fast out of my head. Though i'm thinking about next models to come, if they can survive in this mediocre world. There is Sony, but they use that crappy android, if they could use meego/jolla sailfish i would probably go for them instead of blackberry. But right now ex. Nokia mobiles are kind of out of my head. What a waste, SAD. Still can't believe how quickly everything changed into dust. I always thought that abandoning Symbian smartphones was a bad omen, but never expected such a bad thing to happen. Never expected Nokia will sell it's soul only after couple of mounts after Symbian division was entirely killed.
