Generally I don't jump into every other review I found on my favorite device but Absolon is one of those who tells what a device really is, bad or good.
He is a brilliant reviewer and he has got N8 to show off and you will see how excited he is. Not full review but a good preview of the device.
I have recently bought NOKIA N8 & facing very unusal problem with the set. The new handset is not receiving incoming calls from local fixed land line for some gsm network provider where as we been able to call on particular local fixed land line from this handset . Apart ALL other mobile calls been receiving & outgoing along with all std ,isd mobile & fixed land line are ok in this new set(NOKIA N8).
Now since I using this handset on that particular network where i need to receive lots of local calls from fixed line but now its been difficult ever since i change my usual sim on this new handset (NOKIA N8).pls give us proper solution if any,
These are the things that might never happen in mobile world:
1. HTC - making a good multimedia mobile
2. Nokia - Dumping Symbian
3. SE - releasing a phone with latest available OS version
4. Moto - Catching up with trend
5. LG - Having a look on whats happening out there in the smartphone world
6. Samsung - understanding the meaning of after sales support
7. Apple - accepting that people who use mobiles have brains as well
The phone spec is great... However the OS is so buggy. I would say the software is at Beta still.
Some functions are not even working as expected, such as "Do Not Save Sent SMS". It just didnt work :(
The only thing good about the phone is the camera. It is more of less at compact digital camera level.
Hopefully new software updates will be available soon to get things turn around.
i purchased this mobile after bring to home its not was not working ............... i given to service center.........i think this waste cell in nokia............
Nameless, 24 Nov 2010So? What do you want man? A medal? Even if I were to get an defective unit Nokia will replace ... moreim not saying that i hate this phone. i just to share what i've seen on the net... LOL..
bad experience, user interface and functions all quite handy, but phone auto switched off and cannot be on back after one day
When i was working on nokias default brouser and opera mini with 3 tabs, mobile died, May be you can try this to check whether your mobile has faulty hardware :), Normally you can work on both, but both has minor disadvantages still they are really good.

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2010question: can i open more than one brower in this phone?If default browser and opera mini symbian version : yes
If default browser and opera mobile : yes, but avoid super heavy websites.
Its so hard for Nokia to make their fans happy,but it's soooo easy for Samsung or any android phone maker to make their fans happy. Two word "BIG & HIGH" big screen,high resolution,high processor and all of their fans will sez "HORAAAAAY...!!!" none of them care with hdmi,usb otg,metal case,gorilla glass, 12mp+xenon flash etc...they happy with cheap plastic case,5mp with no flash,no front camera and even no external memory. But no matter what people says bout N8, i still love this phone it has all features that i need. :-)
i love nokia, never had any phone in the past, well i had a sony ericson, which i got rid of in about a week after using, and went back to nokia
