"Seriously, you call that easy? Easy is going to settings and selecting mp3 file. Everything else is a pain. Where is that "ease of use" you iPhone fans are so proud of?"

Needing something like iTunes and a special cable is just to get the files on the phone is just absurd. Why can't I just connect to the phone as a massdrive or send the files over bluetooth.
I'm sure the next version of Windows will come with a multitasking like iPhone, its just so much easier and better ;) I agree that its probably easier for the grandmas etc. though that can't really get the concept of multitasking anyway.
Oh and I wouldn't like closing programs on iPhone either since the "task manager" is one more total fail...
Help!! Just got the N8..
At first when receiving a message it would show up on the home scree 1 new message. Now, it alerts me by popping up in the top left corner of the screen who text me and then disappears so to open it i need to go into my inbox! What did i do?> lol how do i change it back?
Also, cant sign into social to add facebook/twitter etc. says the network is unavailable???
Does the N8 have an alarm clock and reminders? I am looking to buy a new phone and have come to rely on my current phone (Nokia 6330 express)for its alarm.

Actually that ringtone thing is VERY easy nowdays, with itunes new file sharing option. When you had used iphone last time?
Yesterday i went my friend place and he has bought iphone4 and i changed hi's ringtone, very easy thing with new apps from appstore which can cut your musics in your library only with your phone.
That whole task took me about 1 min.
More sad i'm with my WP7 i cant put any my own ringtones to it, hope the update coming soon.
And if you called iphone multitasking joke i called it very easy to use. i never liked the real multitasking that much "closing apps all the time" when i had my iphone i havent' had that problem. And still i did same things which before with real multitasking.
I think almost only people who don't like iphone multitasking are users who havent really owned iphone.
Of course it cant do all very complex heavy multitasking, but i think for average user that kind of multitasking is much better than usual close this and this app to keep your phone smooth and usable.
I hope wp7 is getting samekind multitasking and i think it will. Hope sooner than later :)

TOM, 20 Nov 2010I have N8 and Im not Nokia hater as I bought it 3 weeks ago, was expectin much much more ... !Like what? You have most of the useful features that are not available in the rival phone at a lower cost (50% less than iphone and 30% less than Samsung galaxy S). In N8, you have the Mail for Exchange, USB to go, free GPS navigation for life, the best phone camera to date, a lot of free apps, an HDMI connection, very manageable programs unlike iphone jail, a tough built body and an excellent multitasking. If you only want playing on your phone, why don't you go for a toy like iphone4 or maybe PSP.
You can't get that features on any Iphone at same price maybe in Samsung, here in UAE, Pixon12, Wave, Galaxy's price are going down due to the threat of N8.

frustrated, 20 Nov 2010can anyone tell if the MEEGO OS in N900 be transferred to N8..i need it urgently..
my phone h... moreTheoretically N8 using ARM CPU can be flashed with MeeGo OS but we have to wait for a while for the experts to do that.
For N900 users, there is buzz that Nokia is releasing a new firmware for N900 that will enable it to dual boot (MeeGo & Maemo). If it happens, it is very possible also to that on N8.
TOM, 20 Nov 2010Sure that audio for Angry birds was turned off !!!I am playing NFS Shift (audio turned off)which requires more graphics power than angry bird while my web browser is open at the background and listening to Bob Marley's songs on the installed PowerMP3 beta2 on my N8. I'd experienced no lagging, just drained the battery a little faster..lol
Be honest, do you really have N8 or you're one of those nokia haters who frequently comes here and bashed N8.
rdca, 20 Nov 2010No im not iphone user, gitty and sooner know that im planning to get n8 next month.. im asking... moreHonestly i don't have any problem with my N8, it is loaded now with games and apps and working well as I expected. There's a report about acknowledgement of Nokia that a limited number of the N8 units had a power problem (i don't have that problem). But Nokia also said that the problem is fully covered by the warranty.
TOM, 20 Nov 2010Is NOT possible listen music and play Angry birds ( game goes lacks and no smooth) !If you want to listen to music and play angry birds at the same time, you must turn-off the audio of angry birds or else it will go nuts.
