nokiaN8 hardware and operating system are light weight, symboan can earn nokia money, because the little ram and low speed arm cpu can work almost perfect on symbian, nokia can lower their phone price, hence thier low end, mid eng phone marketshare is always unbeatable, for the high end, meego is progressing in the right direction and very well, keep your eyes for 2q next year
I bought this fone a week ago.....till now I have faced no problems.....there are a few lacks in the fone but...its worth the price.....
Is its camera can take a good picture in close range? Because most of nokia camera can't do it, it blur when take picture like small word writen on cigarete box.

N8 is not good
Wow! The n8 is finally here in stores in nigeria! The galaxy s is still selling for 25% more than the n8s release price! I'm got mine last week on monday but returned it. I asked for a green one, they sent me a silver.
I love it too. The video camera is super cool :-) My buddy has the Galaxy S from Samsuns. It too is a nice device but the N8 takes nicer better focused videos. We are busy comparing them right now :-)
i am in love with my n8. Yes it has problems, but surely its the best phone, ever released
vt, 30 Oct 2010guys just brought this phone.everything is fine but my gps is not working.google maps keeps sa... moreRegarding Ovi Map, you must have internet line to locate your position, thus map/search will show you where and distance to go. (WAP 3G insufficient power to run the GPS system).
Ovi is built in GPS but need support by internet line to full fledge running...like any other GPS system that u need to buy.
Ovi map also can run with WIFI, bcoz that the hp can run Ovi in the hp shop bcoz wifi is there. When go home Ovi unable to locate you.
So....subscibe internet line...
Its again NOKIA did what it failed to improve from years...That solution to HANGING Problem...in there SYMBIAN Platform....
I Bought N8 with all my Pocket Money n now i Tottaly understand its useless to spend so much on NOKIA ...Same hanging Problem In N8 too...
I Wish NOKIA Still have little Time to Improve itself and Come Counter ANROID else our child 'll know there was a Phone his Dad used to use called NOKIA
In another 40 votes, the N8 will be the most voted phone on the forum! And that in exactly ONE month after its release. Further, the N8 had a averige score of 8 before it got released and now it went up to 8.5 !
I bought N8 last week. This is kind of Nokia hp that i waiting for. Excellence, beautiful..i love my N8.
Must have internet line to utilise all attractive apps.
I want to find friends that currently using N8 to share experience & friendship.
My E : email@example.com
a very nice piece of technology.... 12 mp camera with xenon flash...hd video, 16gb internal,capacitive touch screen,nice gps, nice amoled screen, n nice built quality.. on top of all that, its sold at a very reasonable price.... an all in one phone 4 evry1..... gud job nokia....
Bought my n8 sliver and phone is awesome. super response to touch, very good internet speed, royal looks over all masterpiece, technically awesome. finally nokia made it after long time.
when i play videos or youtube on my nokia 5800 it drains battrey in less than one hour . Is it the same with n8?
This is an N8 forum. I understand some people love to hate symbian but while the foul language and repeated post of the same thing. This forum is meant to give your experience.
Smartphones are instrument for getting things done and for some symbian works best while for others android .
Go give your family members more time or learn something useful/long lasting. Learning pros and cons of smartphones makes you look stupid in front sensible people.
my advice for n8 buyers, the right way to choose which color to buy is to see it physically, dont lookaat the display model because the real one has a shiny surface,
the silver display model is ugly but the real one is shiny and attractive, so far ,i have seen blask and silver, need to look at other color like blue, green and orange
