I've had my N8 nearly a week and I love it. I work in sales for a network and out of the power 4: HTC DHD, Galaxy S, IP4 and my N8, the N8 seems to have the most hardware for money. We've had a look at all of them and it really will depend on your app/hardware preference, which is best.
The Wave is a good alternative for people who want the Super AMOLED, but want to save power as BADA isn't nearly as consuming as Android, the same can be said for Symbian V3 (this will get more support as Samsung drop support for old at a moments notice, they honestly don't give a **** about them.
As for the CPU/GPU/ROM, Samsung claim they have the fastest, this will also be the most power hungry. They boast their Humming bird is 2x faster than the equivalant Snapdragon and 4x faster dealing with graphics.
Ip4 are quality for ease of use and good quality apps, horrendsly overpriced though.
For me it was between the Galaxy S, Desire(mk1) and the N8.
I have gone through Andriod (Sony x10) and iPhone 4 and they both are very bad for business integration. The droid works well with google apps best, and the iphone is a totally closed system that relys on itunes for everything. The N8 has personality. While every other machine is running Android or the closed circuit iphone, the Symbian3^ is definitely in a league of its own, droids and iOS notwithstanding.It is light on battery and memory, has the best camera that matches any current point and shoot, and has classy integration with Outlook. Symbian Rules!!
Just visited NPD mumbai,dadar ! He said the price on their website is mentioned 23000 but the real price is still 26000 rs. ! Very dissapointed !

We've got the right to choose and there ain't no way we'll loose it, this is our life this is our N8. We'll fight the powers that be just, don't pick our destiny 'cause you don't know us, you don't belong. We're not gonna take iPhone4. Oh you're so condescending, your gall is never ending, we don't want nothing - not a thing from you. Your life is trite and jaded, boring and confiscated, if that's your best - your best won't do.
of course. aside from the camera and magnificent HD video recording. youll get the new s3 different from the s60. it is much better.
Got yourself an N8, here's a list of apps.
-Ovi maps version 3.03
-Nokia email, can handle ten email accounts
-Get jar apps
-Mig 33vs 42
-stock webkit browser; its good with built in flash. Asin better than opera mini 10
-Sky fire web browser, better than Opera mini, all of them free except for Kaspersky antivirus

If nokia can improve the material they use (like samsung they have a good quality to use the operating system n oso control the phone material they use it, like samsung wave, galaxy s). n hope nokia can improve operating system much, it would be better cos Symbian^3 OS nothing special n improve compare with b4 just improve a little bit like same with nokia5800 n oso n95. Anywhere n8 also a good smartphone in market this moment cos they easy to connected to computer to manage ur files, song n everthing no need to linking any software to connect, so good JOB for nokia and oso other brand smartphone. d now change it back to iphone, i os oso have a lot of thing not user friendly, like everything should be linking itunes to manage a files N OSO much video clip they dont support need to convert it, so for this part iphone not user friendly compare with other smartphone. Finally for i os or Symbian^3 OS cant to say who is the better in this moment but can say it is apple got a lot production to support them to produce a lot apps for the i os. So thats y i choose back iphone.
