I bought one for me and another for a friend and they both work great,.. made in China. The phone does appear to lag when navigating some of the screens, but I think that is the look of the OS.
Even if it isn't, as i posted earlier, droids and the iphone both mave more polished looks, the transitions are smoother and the OS feels more modern...
That being said, I could not crash this phone YET no matter how I tried. My droid crashed easier... and I don't like to talk about my iphone experiences.... it brings out a bad side.
[deleted post]LOL... that was hilarious... LOL
I now have a Nokia N8, since selling my Nexus One. To be honest, if my Nexus One had better reception, I would still have that phone, even though I am rather concerned about Google's recent privacy issues.
I think of this Nokia as an alternative, but not a direct competitor to iPhones and Androids. If you want to spend loads of money on data, don't want free maps and want a phone that can't make a call when you are in a pinch, but has AMAZING APPS and a dazzling screen, then go for an iPhone or most of the recent droids out there.
In case it wasn't apparent, I prefer droids over iPhones... when a phone forces you to use only its connectors and the "rules" around itunes... I get a headache...
For me, I can do with quality over quantity, so I needed a more stable phone. The Nokia OS seems slow and less attractive when compared to the others out there, but I prefer it for daily use. All that has to happen now is for the developers to get a few key alls out for it, not dozens... and I am converted for now... The look of the OS can be changed over time, but to say I rather a better looking phone/os over a more stable one would make me kinda shallow...
I really see Nokia as going after a different segment and is doing a pretty good job so far.
Just my opinion.

Hi, I still have a couple of question about the N8
1) can you view documents from microsoft office 2000 or HIGHER on it (yes I still use it from time to time)?
2) If you don't have 3g or wifi connection, can you use ethernet cable and connect to the internet via the micro usb?
3) is there a link with the Voice command/dial in action?
when i first used the phone for 30 mins, i was like "hmm it's just one of hte smart phones" but when i strated to use the features, i honestly felt like i am an owner of a top-notch tech device... that fricking awesome camera n video, amazingly good gps, cool fm transmitter n radio... after putting a 32gb card, i feel as if i am carrying a computer harddrive with me (50 gigss)....
Jaws, 04 Nov 2010Is there anyway I can install covers for the music on the phone? Some don't have covers and i... moreyes,you could use ovi music/ovi player. This what i do: copy some mp3 which had no album cover to pc and use ovi music/player to edit tag and add cover album. I think there is no option to edit by the phone,lets hope nokia will bring it back on next update. :-)
i m in love with this phone.. like seriously.. it can improve on a few things nonetheless.. portait keyboard, search option in the music player, a few more apps that dont depend on internet (i.e. preloaded facts in amazing facts app instead of relying on net), n ability to pinch in zoom in out for all things...
Is there anyway I can install covers for the music on the phone? Some don't have covers and it's annoying...
