Hi, did anybody try out the voice command/dial? How does it work?
Does the N8 play avi files and can you also connect to the internet using your LAN by connecting you ethernet cable to usb/ethernet adapter plug and connecting it to a micro usb or do you have to use the WLAN?
Also what is the oldest office document that the N8 can view. ( microsoft office 97 and up)
I'm planning on buying this phone soon and I'm curious about these features mentioned.
i have this phone already and work in a phone store.
My N8 is fine and awesome
The amount of phones that are faulty out of the box is stupid.
I love Nokia but come on NOKIA im trying to get people to get N8's and most of them off the bat are faulty
Guys dis fone is just amazing.....guys i have all my latest songs on my fone....use it all the time in my car with fm transmitter...and wen i need songs wen iam on the move...ovi music is just awesome....my frds were blown how much nokia N8 offers.....all new music fr free....!!!!!
my opinion: the people who are stil writing on ths forum d0n't own an n8. I g0t my n8 on Thursday & I c it as a waste of time having to swat flies (Samsungs, iPhones) away. This is a d0pe ph0ne! Feature are unmatched! 7-1 defeat, and ur blackburn! LoL! Glory gl0ry man united!

Eldar on www.mobile-review demoaned the N8 before it was even Released an tried to deter Nokia from releasing it,but on mobile-review he as just done a Audio Test between the N8,iPhone4 an Samsung Wave,an the N8 won the test,an just shows what a big mistake he made pulling the N8 in the first place,an shows he does have some relationship with Samsung
Yesterday i got my new black/grey Nokia N8. Its a masterpiece. All the features are top notch. After seeing my cell a good friend of mine wants to exchange it with his new Samsung Galaxy S. I simply refused. Its too awesome a phone to get exchanged with a Galaxy S.

A cortex a8 at the same speed is twice as fast, up to 5 times faster when the multimedia instruction set is utilized to its fullest.
Arm11 need 2GHz to compete with snapdragons cpu core at 1GHz. And then all we get is 680Mhz? just because Symbian has compatibility issues with newer processors. Ofcors Nokia doesnt use Arm11 coz its fast enough, they use it coz they cant make symbian work properly on newer cores.
Symbian isnt as lightweight as you guys think, only the core is lightweight, a modern phone cant do anything with only the core loaded.

To make matters worse, Android isn't very good at utilizing GPU. Part of this could very well be that different phones have so different GPU chips, while on Bada and S^3, there is only 1 GPU chip in use.
Together that means that N8 can actually do better than any of the current Android devices. Bada is another matter, but with Wave II looking lot less interesting and the slowing app growth, the platforms future doesn't look all that promising.

Oh, im too s2pid now, i forgot , Symbian doesnt have any real webbrowsers =) Ok, go ahead and enjoy your wap sites on your outdated N8.
