I used Fring for Skype video calls on N95, because I could not find how to do this with Skype app for Symbian.
There even a discussion about Symbian video calling missing on Skype at Skype forums with last posts dated as late as few days ago!
I have no comments about N8. May be it is in short supply or a great phone. It is not what I am talking about.
Many old apps are not ready for S^3 with some features not working after release date of N8 which clearly demonstrates 3rd party app developers' certain neglect of new Symbian platform.
As I also mentioned earlier various service providers seem not to have Symbian apps in their development pipeline. I am not talking about stupid apps. I am talking about useful apps and useful services which I would probably want to use on a mobile phone platform rather than a laptop.

Symbian was the first platform to get video calling on skype. Months before android. I've been making video calls with skype on my n95 8gb for about a year if not more.
Nokia has gotten over 500,000 registered developers since inception of the ovi store. Quality apps don't get made overnight. The apps are coming. There is no reason why they won't. Especially considering the current shortages of n8s all over the place and that symbian is by far the worlds most popular mobile os.

A new breed of applications for S^3 and S^4 is needed urgently and it is necessary for Nokia to do something that companies get back to developing for new Symbian. The current range of applications is becoming increasingly limited.
I am becoming increasing worried that many useful service provides omit to mention Symbian. I see iPhone app, Andriod app announced is coming soon, and no mention of Symbian.
It gets ridiculous that Skype Symbian app has not been updated to allow video calls when all other platforms allow video calls. With Skype disabling Fring bridge video call feature disappeared from Nokias.
I have had my N8 for 6 days now and the only problem i had was on a friday when it just went dead i struggled for 10 minutes to get it on and now it works fine just got a bug music plays by itself when locked now and then i think thats nothing i can live with that
OVI store seems to be gathering speed at ridiculous speed. Now 3.5 million downloads a day. It was just 3 million 3 weeks ago and 2 million back in september.
Pretty awesome growth and I think people should stop wondering now if N8 is selling well ;)

Im very happy with the N8 is not the manufacter is the lote number i think.. i have a bad n8 made in china and i replaced with another one made in china too... and in this one no restarts problems or anything like the other one, so if u have a china one, it doesnt matter.
please my Nokia fans check this video . and tell me about Nokia E7 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hksfcTdTWGw . waiting for replay /
I received my N8 on 30th October. I already owned a Nokia E71. The hype built on websites including GSM Arena and numerous other websites made me buy the new phone.
First of all GSM Arena should verify the specifications before posting on the website. The standy time of 390 hours is totally false. After using the power saving mode, disabling all the widgets, I could get maximum of one and a half day. I question myself .... did I pay hell lot of money for buying a phone equivalent to Nokia 3310 (BTW 3310 will always remain a superb phone; my point of reference is whether I spent that kind of money for a basic phone???)
Last night was the limit. I charged the phone fully at midnight and when I woke up in the morning, the phone battery was already dead. Upon reaching my office, I charged it again fully ... and then went to a meeting. During the meeting, I had to make a call, and guess what ... the battery was dead again. This is so heart breaking.
After the office hours, I went to Nokia Care Islamabad ... very courteous people ... I had to wait for more than three hours sitting there ... while the technician frantically tried to save my contacts to OVI website ... he failed. After the failure, he installed the software again ... and handed me the phone while it was still formatting the 32 GB card. It has been 5 hours and the card is about 75% formatted.
I really feel like suing Nokia for having betrayed their loyal customers. I am not sure whether the software reinstallation will solve the battery issue. The nice guys at the Nokia Care were kind enough to advise me not to use any online features!!! What a shame!!!!
Nokia Disucssion forums are full of negative comments about this phone ... I posted my experience, and after a few minutes, received a PM from one of the moderators that I should not write negative comments .. this is copy of what I received from Nokia moderator ... "Advice to not to buy Nokia products is unconstructive and unhelpful contribution to users. If all you want to do is express your dissatisfaction with your Nokia, we suggest that you use the 'Contact us' link at the top of the page or contact your local Nokia Care line.
I am very very disappointed
