Anonymous, 05 Nov 2010wht the hell?? nokia apps are os version specific?? epic fail. What do you epic fail? Is just like android and ios and other os out there. Most of the apps are version specific, not all apps will work on different versions. Just like symbian, btw s60v5 and symbian^3 are different versions not different OS. So you deserve the EPIC FAIL!
nokia lives and will live on being the best people only use symbain 3 apps for n8 i think nokia needs to build strengh in the app section and make usefull apps nokia should be working on the n8 succesor all now a 18 mega pixel or so i have my faith in nokia i think nokia needs to work hard in the touch screen section i want the to make a better screen than samsungs super amoled screen nokia if your the best be the best any one agrees with me

Those software applications just break the operating system on N8. I have told here many times not do so.
The S60V5 software may overwrite some system interfaces that leaks memory or busy loop cpu and eventually makes the phone not work properly"
Guess now you know why Apple do it the way they do it via Itunes only. It guarantees quality plus earns app developers a bit of money.
i am a nokia fan but symbain 3 is not enough i love the n8 but not the os symbain 3 is still stone age nokia needs to give the os a major update so it can be the fastest stable and the best one of my disapointments is no video light a phone recording in hd and no video light the nokia n8 is the best built camera phone in the world rite now and the best i can c for rite now i shit samshit needs flushing down the toilet were they belong

Wow! you Nokia fans are something else aren't you's. A bug is a bug, Nokia under powers their devices so much it ain't even funny any more. Why has it gotta freeze so many times, I speak from experience N97 was the same, it even once froze on me in the middle of an interview.
My N8 is so powerfull.No crash or something issue bout restart just like every other said.It just fast in every way.The price is so cheap n trust me it works!
Battery Battery Battery Life Life Problem. Not enough Application. Wast Money
why does this model take so long to reach 1 millions mark. 3days release of iph4 in uk and usa took sale of 3 millions units
The phone is great, however, OVI store does not provide good application unline apple store with their iphone users.
all in all, you get a good quality camera, and a good portable hard drive, a good video player that you can project in an HD TV via HDMI, or even watch movies if you have a thumb drive with a video file and an FM transmitter so you dont have to have cables when you are in the car and want to listen to any of your music.
come on nokia, with a great phone, I think you should also provide us good applications as well.
not that impressed in regards to application..

@TOM you can send music via bluetooth in N8. Just long press on the song you want to send then there will be choices. If you think there is no send a song choice then probably you are holding an iPhone. Haha!

Both seem ok. Screen is not so good on this phone, is this another light sensor issue like Sony, even at max it darkens too much. Turning off sensors does not make any difference. Good through HDMI, not convinced it's as good as could be. Could not find how to change wallpaper, guess you have to select image then apply. Probably spoilt with Android phones, but even with the 'newer' version of Symbian it feels outdated. Great camera, but being honest as the screen is still only the resolution of say a 5230 or 5800 xpress music, feel that 5230 seems brighter and clearer. They should have doubled the screen resolution, maybe they could have teamed up with Casio who seem to be developing high res small screens. Sorry Nokia, not all that happy with this phone, keeping it because camera good, as a 'smartphone' it's not all that. Audio very good, image quality very good, but that's it.
Wikipedia instaled from Ovi store doesnt load pages... Error loading page appears on screen. ;-(
