I have narrowed my search down to two phones, the N8 and a Blackberry 9780. I know the N8 wins on hardware specs,etc. However, the 9780 looks simple to use for calling and texting which I do much of. the other most important thing is call quality!
I am on pay as you go with 02 and the big negative regarding blackberry is the extra payment for a bolt on to use push email and internet etc, otherwise it just don't work!
I believe the N8 does not charge extra for this service. I have been a little reluctant to go back to touch screens after my last Sony broke twice. However, that said, it was the first one Sony brought out and technology has moved on.
I would appreciate any comments on the two phones and any N8 users comments would be helpful as I am swaying to the Nokia. I intend to buy in the next week. Thanks!
Attention all Apple Fanboys:
The price of iPhone4-32GB here in the UAE has gone down to only 2400AED (650 USD), down by almost 50%.
I asked the sales person of at least 3 big electronics store here in UAE why that sudden price reduction. Their answer is almost the same : "There are so many complains of iPhone4 call dropping and the high demand of Nokia N8."
Just heard a few months ago that iPhone is very much confident that there is no threat, not even slight threat from any other smartphone including N8. Now he ate his words. N8 rocks!!
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2010u can use special zooming only in videorecording.thanks. so this is the possible amount of zooming for still pics ryt??? thanx again.
I'll get one under Smart Gold tonight!! cant wait to try and use it personally
Guys, need some help.... i bought an N8 2 days back. facing some probs with zooming. does it support extended zooming. because its like 2x digital zooming.
Got this marvel for a week. Did not find anything that can amuse me for the money I paid for it. Will sell it by next week and will run for Samsung Galaxy S. Android is the way to go these days. Enough of Symbian Dosage. Galaxy S is far far superior in terms of Hardware, tons of free softwares and beautiful Screen to behold. Nokia should wake up or face death soon. Bye
Not very familier with smartphones. I just want to know is it of any disadvantage that u can't remove the battery from N8 easily, like other phones. Does it matters when the phone hangs.
And so the haters start again. What lagging, what major update are you talking about? Grrrr, you people just won't give up, do ya? The n8 is fine the way it is. Of course it will have an update like a normal equipment. Iphone now has 4.2 update. N8 can do a lot more than iphone and it did not even have it's update yet. Imagine if they tweak it some more? It'll be almost perfect.
n8 hanging and restarting,music edition coming rectifying ds defects.
When ? When will Nokia release the new Firmware with all the fixes (internet, lagging, freezing etc) Its been long and the more they wait the more BAD word spreads.
Nokia will bring-out a strong ,major update which will fix many issues (e.g: browser, lagging issue, and many ).
So stay tuned.

As they say in computers: What is true to one is true to the rest. These lies are just propagated by haters. Of course there are bad apples in the basket but it should not be that many. And judging by the "defects" these people here are saying, and saying it again and again, it is so obvious that they are here to bash the phone. Well, good luck guys because N8's sales are phonemonal, especially in Europe.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2010I take that back. I didn't see your last statement. You confuse me. Anyway, luvya again!!!
Yup, that's okay, hehe
I think the problem with the second and later batches because people who got at first from pre-booking not reported any problem & me too got the same and it was perfectly fine. no problems at all.........
