[deleted post]well, everything has its positives and negatives, for example, N900 got MeeGo in dual-booting (unofficially of course) while N8/E7/C7 are newer products with rich features but no linux OS.
N900 is a good smartphone but *personally* I would upgrade by purchasing the newer and better products which as you said support capacitive screen and much more.

[deleted post]The n900 by my standards should NOT have been on sale to the general public like vodafone advertised it..It is a experimental device thats grows but you have to really know what your doing and be part of the meamo community.
The n8 is good in all areas but depends on your needs really cause altho a lots changed from 5th edition its still the same under the hood but has hardware improvements galore.
The only other factor to help you is n8 battery is strong but n900 is really poor.

symbian is still the software is the most hacked and free applications like gps softwares, games,applications. apple,android,windows,and other are not so popular. i live in romania,country of the best hackers and i found many free or hacked apps for symbian,but not for other o.s. even legal pyment on line is not allowed from romania and other eastern europe cool countries, so we have to steal and to hack,and all this apps are 90% for symbian. so this is the main reason for symbian to remain so popular.
is it true that silver colour n8 starts to loose its colour with time...???
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010N8 user please remember when changing to landscape mode you must turn your phone the correct w... mores^3 also happens to be the only OS out there that has fully rotating UI, so it is kind of funny trying to bash that.
swift, 03 Nov 2010Since this phone has AGPS, do i need network connection to use GPS? it has offline mode for exploring maps,and you don't have to be online. But online mode is faster i think.
Rafy, 03 Nov 2010wow so overated...
i voted 1-1-1 to keep the score more realisticYou do note that N8 is currently by far the most popular phone on the site. Do you think there might be a reason for that?
It is also the phone with most votes, so the vote you cast without ever even trying the phone luckily means nothing.
Rafy, 03 Nov 2010wow so overated... i voted 1-1-1 to keep the score more realisticrating depends on user opinion about the phone..... No way can dis phone get the rating as u said....be true.....or else better f*** off from this page
