zamry, 22 Oct 2010u can see the OS dude.. vivaz is 720 n n8 is only 680.. N8 run on the latest Symbian^3 while the SE runs on the older s60v5. The n8 also has a better GPU than the vivaz. The n8 is also smoother, better camera and nokia provides better updates for their phones. Dun expect a symbian software update from SE cause they dropped symbian already.
snonre, 20 Oct 2010How can the vivaz be better than this phone, man?u can see the OS dude.. vivaz is 720 n n8 is only 680..
Next Nokia announced that you won't be hearing any more talk of Symbian^4 from them. The improvements that were planned for Symbian^4 will be introduced as soon as they become available - so instead of one big release, it's going to be more of a series of iterative updates to the existing platforms.
That means that if you buy a Nokia device now, you won't need to wait for all the parts of the new interface to be ready and you will be able to get some of them sooner. Plus there is no risk of some devices not getting a Symbian^4 upgrade anymore.
N8 Boy, 21 Oct 2010Can Anybody post the Link for "The Sims 3 HD" her??
PLS if you have any link ?Here you go
Have been using my n8 for more than 10 days now without a reboot..... Alas reboot is a passee now :)... Works absolutely smooth and i dont see any degradation in performance....Just have one query... N8 can be charged via usb and standard charger...i am not sure is it safe to keep standard charging on while its connected to usb at same time... Will it damabe the phone if both are connected simultaneously??

You are one heck of a geek.....in such a short time you just.got the nerves of this phone....why dont you become an analyst or start producing mobile phones of your own

Bluetooth 3 = any wireless or bluetooth keyboard and mous support and high speed data transfer also best a2dp support

We are soooo fed up with people your kind. lol. Ignore him, fellow N8ers. :-) I think he works for the iPhone or Samsung, right Dwane? Peace...
People pay for what they get. And is not bad what they get,that's why they are prepared to pay :-) I will receive mine next friday at the end of the month.
i see nokia's share price went up but I don't understand why people are prepared to pay so much for it. Is only a cell phone after all. On the other hand is a damn nice one.
Akash, 22 Oct 2010The price is around 500 Euros now ,, not 370 eur. as promised !The price is so high because the phone is so much sought after. Nokia themself were taken by surprise. The n8 was expected to sell good but not so good. Did you check what nokia share price did in the last month or so? People are prepared to pay such high prices.
mark , 21 Oct 2010having played on this a few days before uk release. i have come to a conclusion.its not that g... moreI am a Nokia fan and waited patiently for this saviour phone. Now that I have the phone I have to agree with you. It was so not worth the wait. It acts like a typical Nokia -going slow at times and totally freezing too (and I've only put my contacts on it).
I've had mine for 5 days and it has crashed on me everyday and misses emails when I sync my gmail, -I'm not going take 2 years of that.
The camera is really good (its almost impossible to take a blurry picture) in fact all of the 'features' on it are -the USB OTG, FM receiver, sat nav etc but I just can't rely on it to work when I need it and at a good speed. And that's def not good when trying to defend/show off the phone to others who have a snappy adroid or Iphone.
I hate to say it but this phone will not save Nokia in the smart phone competition and I'm really disappointed and I am sending mine back and jumping ship to Android -prob the HTC desire I think.
I used to read and believe that this phone's GPU would make up for the low processor but in reality it is just not the case. When (or if) Nokia make a phone to actually compete in the UI as well as just features then I will be back as I love(d) Nokia and want them to do well as they have served me well in the past.
(Reply from nokia)not going to launch anything as Symbian^4, we’ll stop using the version numbers. Instead, we’ll evolve the UI, apps and service experiences in the new Symbian towards the design we had planned for Symbian^4, but in a series of development steps. These updates will also be made available for you as an N8 user, for example.
