Ovi + Nokia + Features + Performence + Design + Symbian^3 + Touchscreen + Best Quality Hardware - Sky High Prices = New High End Nokia N8
Google + XYZ + Android + Touchscreen + Poor Quality Hardware + Sky High Prices = XYZ Android
Apple + iOS - Features + Sky High Prices = Apple iPhone
Overall i like Nokia!!!
I think Nokia N8-00 can be classified as a high end smartphone in a way it offers multimedia features that cannot be found on other smartphones (e.g. miniHDMI interface, USB OTG, best 12MP camera, innovative video zooming, just to name other features). Now, for other Symbian^3 smartphones (e.g. E7-00, C7-00, C6-01, & X7-00) they can also be classied as high end smartphones.
Now, Nokia wouldn't consider to use Android nor Windows Phone 7 because they have MeeGo OS. A collaboration between Nokia and Intel. Hence, stop making news that Nokia will use Android or WP7.
And Nokia is Nokia, each manufacturers has its own advantages and disadvantages over other manufacturers. However, your just messing with Nokia because they are not releasing their third OS, the MeeGo OS, that will answer all your questions and complains about Nokia.

mehedi, 21 Dec 2010how to open batteryU can't It's inbuilt...Still want to c d battery means...break the phone..
partbabyjesus, 20 Dec 2010I just bought the phone sold iphone 4 to get it... i will never betray symbian again... it is ... moreYes your over the moon now, but wait till it freezes, drops calls and starts doing all the other lovely things that symbian is well known for im sure ur opinion will change. Goood move on selling the iphone 4 but if u wanted a better phone should have invested in a high end android device
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2010n8 is still using iphone 3gs processor!! nokia has worst high end smartphone now and n8 is str... moreLAst i checked, nokia doesn';t publish their sales figures for individual devices.But still, if the number of stores with 'out of stock' on their front glass is anything to go by, i'ld say nokia is having real trouble producing enough for everyone. Maybe in your own virtual universe, they haven't sold millions. A single distributor here in nigeria has sold over 900 units talk less the whole country, more the whole world. Sorry to disappoint you but fact is, i won't be surprised if the n8 has outsold the i phone already. Oh and it doesn't cost 200 bucks. I see no reason why any rational human being would be happy to pay outrageous fees for a piece of trash sandwiched between layers of 'break me' glass. I fix it claims both phones cost the same to manufacture component wise. get some commom sense please.

Anonymous, 20 Dec 2010LG Optimus 2X have both HDMI and DLNA, not even N8 can do that, and soon, probably early 2011,... morewait and wait and wait............ and wait, so you will not have handphone forever my friend, the best is now you buy N8, next time others brand with better feature you buy again, if you do not have money to buy handphone, please be nice and quiet, do not make others people know that you have not money to buy a high end handphone. OK?
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2010Yeah... by 2011 more phones will imitate the success of Nokia N8, but remember also by 2011 mo... moren8 is still using iphone 3gs processor!! nokia has worst high end smartphone now and n8 is struggling to reach 1 million mark. 20millions of ip4 and 10 of sgs sold now. nokia is still selling less than 200 dollars in loads but not high end
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2010LG Optimus 2X have both HDMI and DLNA, not even N8 can do that, and soon, probably early 2011,... moreYeah... by 2011 more phones will imitate the success of Nokia N8, but remember also by 2011 more featured packed NOKIA phones will come out! Watch Out. Imitator. NOKIA got it all at first place, so why worry?

CBD(clear Black Display)
you think nokia will give manufactures the patents for USB-OTG ......not a chance in hell
I just bought the phone sold iphone 4 to get it... i will never betray symbian again... it is the replacement to the n95 8gb that the world has been waiting for.
qwerty: for touch screen its amazing also the free app swype will bring tears to ur eyes from the enjoyment of it.
Camera: camera is by far the best i have scene on any phone to date.
Protector: i have always bought a screen cover and case to protect my phones from scratching and with this one i can say... im not going to.. its that amazing.
buy it... only thing ull regret is that u didnt get it sooner..
Update wiped my maps now I cant find one for my country. Ovi maps is said to support 180 countries but only 74 on ovi suite and my country is ont one of them. Any ideas how to revert to pre-installed version? Anyone?
[deleted post]and?. with its resistive touchscreen and a plasticky feel to it and its ready to face the n8? i think my question is... will it blend?
I called in regards to the problems of my phone. i spoke with an representative of your support center. he said that I would have to have it sent to a repair center and it will take 7-10 days for repair. I told him that I was with a service provider is a provider only online (simple mobile) and can only provide a sim card and not a phone. I said that because he told me I would be without a phone for the time of repair. I have a business and the holidays coming at me and I can't be without this phone and yet I can't go with the functions i need in this phone when it's problems by default exist.
I expressed my frustration about the situation with few curse words (2) and the representative told me to stop with the cursing. I did, but he hung up, anyway. A representative of your company.
You guys know you have problems with the phone. There has even been a public announcement my the CEO of Nokia that problems exist by default on this device, yet you couldn't provide a more inconvenient solution to the problem. I suggest that you guys send me a replacement in the meantime during the repair so I wouldn't be without a phone and you guys could keep my credit card on file in case I loose the replacement, or loaner phone. iT'S THAT SIMPLE. IF YOU CAN'T THEN I COULDN'T HAVE DAMNED A MORE WASTEFUL DAY THAN THE DAY I BOUGHT THE NOKIA N8. A phone that promised a whole bunch of excellent quality but forgot to mention it's plethora of glitches and bugs. Still demanding a 600 dollar price tag on it. And now I can't even take it back because its been past a month, and the problems didn't until a month later. Im stuck with a phone that continues to disappoint me time and time again with it's instability.
I may have slightly exaggerated the "regretting of the day i bought the nokia" part.
akhilse, 20 Dec 2010got my N8 yesterday.. can anyone yell me the name of applications that can be installed in it..?anything! as long as it is compatible with your phone. download from ovi.
