Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010They have good battery life because no-one can do anything fun with them so don't use them much.If people don't use the phone, why do they buy? You jut so blindly hate? If you have not used it, you don't have idea why N8 doesn't have a big battery but the battery life is great.

A smart phone life time is at least 3 years from the birth. People buy Nokia's Symbian phones or reasons, good battery life, rich feature and hardware build quality. All these things come with the power of the os. The more things the os supports, the more complex the os is and the more maintenance work the os needs. people need to realize it. Half year to work out a complex major update for a full-fledged and feature rich os is not considered too long.
Besides how do you know it will need 6 months this time for Symbian 3? Actually Nokia has provided some updates already. I am sure more is coming on the way. If you don't believe, wait and see before saying. Please don't always judge things according to your past experience. Things may get change and the world is not static. Nokia is changing and we have seen already some evidences, right my friend?

In the iOS, jailbreaking will void your warrenty, and without jailbreaking your iphone is a piece of unsuable crap.

Fun, but not something I would carry around and there is very little actual data available anyway, not even release date.
Besides, tell me who gets to choose between N8 and this? N8 is not available in Japan and this will never be available anywhere else.

I speak from experience as am a former N97 user. People are still waiting for that all important hot fix nearly 2 years on. Nokia High end smartphones are underpowered and there just ain't enough RAM installed, Symbian itself may not need to much CPU cycles or RAM but third party apps installed may. Off course IOS has bugs but at the end day people affected by the loss of signal are in the minority. Otherwise it works flawlessly. With Nokia phones you need to know which combination of buttons to hold down to reset or learn how to take the battery out and if you do it to the N8 you void your warranty.
It's all about user experience, that's why IOS is out selling symbian in the high end market sector as it a much better user experience.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010does it have document editor? Not out of the box, you have to pay to get the full version of the quickoffice app, with the trial u just get to view documents only
[deleted post]Those are just minor bugs. Can be fixed with software update
Wake up you Nokia N8 bashers! If you hate this phone then why can't you leave this N8 page? Why you keep coming here? You are like a guy who keeps on annoying his beautiful Ex-girlfriend that realizes his ugliness and don't have interest on him anymore but still keep on coming... haha! If you hate, you should leave and forget...
[deleted post]you are nitpicking. Remember this is the first Symbian 3 firmware (with full of features that lack in ios and Android) without a major update yet. Tell me if on earth there is any bug free os or software. Even a few year old microsoft windows os can have frequent updates and hot fixes. What would you say?
Do you have a short position in Nokia even you are a Finnish and your position just makes you have an anti bias.

Responce to internet is fast or not?
[deleted post]Wait a tick, the n8 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 n which has a bandwidth of more than 100mb. Can you prove ur statement?
New game called 'Sparkle' coming soon to the symbian^3 os. Looks like a Zuma clone but with better graphics
azm, 08 Nov 2010hi everybody.. does n8 has horizontal virtual keyboard? thanksBy default it doesnt have a portrait qwerty keyboard, only a numerical keyboard like the ones you find on non-touch scree phone. But there is a software update which brings the portrait keyboard, as well as an improved browser and dragable home screen
this phone nokia N8 doesn't work well the response of the touch screen is not that much 100%. so if someone is planning to buy this phone just double think first before buying it...

BTW, Symbian 4 was supposed to be the UI rewrite. Symboan 3 simply changes things under hood like Qt. That is why it was such a great thing Nokia promised those updates to N8.
