Downloaded new ovi navigation update and it erased my maps. Was using a detailed map of Jamaica now I cant find it back in ovi suite. Damn! Ideas anyone?
Chrishd3z, 17 Dec 2010I will say the hardware of this phone is outstanding but the user interface just isn't enough ... moreIn your opinion!
Many people have gone to Nokia via Symbian alone without android or IOS
You get the phone and you implicitly say these are the features I accept, it may or may not have the features of a competitor, but to buy it and then say it doesn't perform like an iphone / android is disingenuous.
I like pineapplee but why does it not peel like an orange? ( well mother... nature)
All nokia are saying is this is my phone these are the features, as do the andriod eg Galaxy S. were android has only come into being recently, you seemed quite happy using symbian before android,
i am not missing a thing by not using THE OTHERS.
I quite don't understand the logic behind switching back. Again in your opinion Nokia are wasting millions er... no if you don't buy the phone they won't have the money to waste?
Whatever fad is the fashion seems you must have!
do you wear your trousers around your waist or half way down your legs? oh yes i remembered thats why i bought the phone for the camera no the operating system no the smoothness the screen resposnd to the mere touch

hi, i have some problems with my n8, its battery life is quite short, can someone help me with this? is this normal with this phone?
what if nokia suddenly announce an android powered phone . . ? would that be cool right? . . . :) . . . but n8 still rocks . . .
I will say the hardware of this phone is outstanding but the user interface just isn't enough to keep me happy. I am a previous Iphone/Adroid user and enjoyed how easy and efficient it was to use my phone. Unfortunately with Symbian I just don't get that efficiency.
Nokia really should of just installed Android on this phone. I know many in the US would of purchase this phone if it had Android. I love Nokia and have been using them since the N95/N82/N86 and N900 but it is time to really transform Symbian or just jump to Android. Nokia is wasting millions on developing an OS that is only hurting them in the short and long run.
I was considering going back to my Iphone 4 but in reality the camera capabilities of the N8 is something I would like to have.
For all of you interested in buying this phone Nokia has a special USA offering. Use coupon code noknow2010 and you can have your Nokia n8 directly from Nokia for 399 plus tax. It's a great deal.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2010This device is very good. But let me tell you that my first N8 was defected and was really m... moresame was mine case also. . But u r lucky. . My n8 was 2 times DAP, . .i got 2 new phnes frm i2, and was havng pb during call hanging, nd auto restart nd camera bad image. .nw for the 3rd time i got n8. . .nd nw its functioning we££. . .
hey can someone please help me, i just bought an n8 and i have it for like 1 week ,, i noticed that the lock key is a bit loose..it's not like it will fall apart but it's a bit not rigid , a bit loose..is this normal, or is it supposed to be so rigid and firm? any help would appreciated
This device is very good.
But let me tell you that my first N8 was defected and was really malfunctioning that made me go insane. Luckily its under warranty so Nokia Care swapped it with a new sales package.
Now my new N8 works like a charm, no freezing, no rebooting, no sudden turn offs, and not slow at all. and i have it loaded with apps from Ovi Store and i have SPB shell full version on it as well. so imagine i have 13 home screens on my N8.
The camera is awesome snap shots and video recoding.
touch is very sensitive / screen resolution is v.good.
The only thing i am not getting used to is the Virtual Qwerty...
I must Thank Nokia for this Device for they really did a gr8 job. and its money well spent :)
i can spell opportunity cost i just have differculty writing it
opportunity cost ok

apart from the very bad grammar, your reasoning is seriously flawed
If say you buy an item for $700.00 you must expect it to come down in price later. It called the "oppotuntty cost". the premium you pay for owning the product earlier
If a person buys it for $449.00 ( which is quite a drop and i have a hard time believing it) the $251.00 you pay is for owning the the phone for the extra period, which is a bit like $251.00 rental (non refundable) and $449.00 ownership. The price will always drop as other events take place eg which normally maena a sale. Production cost lower etc.
I can't comment on the experiance with the aftercare but emails are the best, he said she said leads to all sort of problems. it does concern me (if true) why nokia would supply a non new phone beacuse that quite frankly is NOT ACCEPTABLE

But considering only the speed, i found the shell to be very fast compared to the normal view.
