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!

snonre, 04 Nov 2010I predict it will arrive in 2-3 weeks time. And avoid installing s60v5 apps cause that is the ... moreNot experienced S60V5 compatibility problems, is that java or symbian apps? 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 Probably spoilt with Android phones, but even with the 'newer' version of Symbian it feels outdated.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. ;-(
Gitty, 04 Nov 2010Any news abt new firmware update ? When is it coming ? Does they know that N8 has problems ? I... morethe restarting is not a software problem,but the way it must be,cuase it has a built in battery. The phone restarts whenever it detects that it might freeze. If it just freezes,as a user u can not just pull out the battery whenever u need too... Thats just the way the new smart phones operate...
why is it nokia n8 colors are not available in other countries?? is it production...here in the phil. the only available colors are black and silver/white?. SMART network owns the color orange wheres the blue and green???
Hi guys, I think Nokia did a great Job with N8, if you try to browse all the nokia phones this one stands out. why compare to other phones?? If you own a big company like nokia will you create a phone that will end your business?? they put few features because they want to maintain their profit.ex. iphone 4 provides us great and super cool feature and after that ?? *nothing* they will just release more on colors-iphone 4 white Thats it!
Phones are phones why waste time to argue on which is the most better...
Going back, NOKIA n8 has a cool features that attracts customer like me. the best is their uniqueness..forget the OS man, just buy a phone that suits your lifestyle...FOR PEOPLE WHO REALLY DONT UNDERSTAND business go and discuss other phones like inQ, ZTE, Vertu and you will find yourself deep in the abyss...

NOKIA Im so disappointed !!! How you can released phone after few mths delay and still many bugs !!! No option for Bluetooth sending songs.You put Bleutooth 3.0 in device and is useless in that case!

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2010is nokia ovi web browser a good web browser and how fast
is itive had nokia n8 for more than a week now and i can say that the web browser is pretty fast (my opinion of course) the only problem is that its not very fluid like the iphone, its as if the frame rate is low but keep in mind that this is not at all times.
also, they are going to release an update soon, so if you want you can wait for that first THEN decide
[deleted post]i read about that as well sucks to be employed by apple right now and be steve jobs XD
you can't sue someone that invented the what you stole XD
yareka, 04 Nov 2010i think guys the best phone android phone be coz so very fast and smooth other smart phone n8 ... moreYou never tested the N8 guess?
It's pretty fast too.
Main difference between Android and Symbian is not the speed, but app store, battery usage, UI and the standard features.
Some people like Android more, some like symbian more for their needs. None of them is better.
