Symbian is programmed through C++ with qt support.
Android is programmed straight from Lynux, same goes for MeeGo.
But all these OS, same with iOS is programmed with webkit and eclipse.
People want higher RAM and processor, not just because of the OS or games, but also smooth web browsing experience as well as playing HD video. In addition, higher RAM and processor can support higher resolution screen.
Would you buy the N8 because of the Camera w/ Xenon or Symbian^3?
Would you buy i9000 Galaxy S for 5mp camera with no LED flash or because of Android 2.1 (update to Froyo)?
Symbian^3 is a light OS, but it may not be enough to some users.

Jeremy, I did have this issue... but it was more to do with Nokia Messaging than Gmail. I was unable to import my old Gmail account that I was using on the N86, but new Gmail accounts were working fine. I deleted my old Gmail account from my N86 but this did not seem to solve the problem... however, when I tried again next day I was able to add the account to my N8.
You can't really compare the Satio with the n8. Satio is using the older symbian. Is in the same class as the n97. Nice but no thanks.
I have the Satio for around 6months now. After playing with a n8 for less then 30min,I have decided to sell my Satio as soon as I receive my n8. I will put it on eBAY. Just look for Go_Mario. Satio is like the n97 OS wise,otherwise a nice device. Go for it.
turning of java script in nokia default browser.....
wow!!!! works really really fast.....
[deleted post]N8 is reported to have the best 12MP camera censor. Both the phones runs on symbian. The make quality of N8 is better. Go for N8.
I've had my N8 for over a week now. I'm really getting into it. Finally figuring out the ins and outs of the music transfer and what works best for me.
Kudos to nokia for still putting the fm radio on the N8. I like the visual dispaly of the fm radio too. I like to listen to the radio when travelling to different states and cities.

Please do not install the Swype at the Ovi Store yet. It's designed for the C7. You might have issues later on if you want to uninstall it. Just wait for the real one for N8 (I hope soon). Patience my friends...
Videos look no bad quality I must say, I have Galaxy s which takes amazing HD videos but poor audio quality when video recording but N8 sounds much better from what I hear.

Nokia should turn it off by default
"Processor not good". Hey, what planet do you come from? Performance is the result of the combination of the processor and the OS. Symbian does not require billion GHz of processing power. A separate GPU is the key and Symbian's minimal processor requirements. Candy Android and iOS requires gazillion GHz because they're programmed in Java, which is running on top of C++, which is running on top of the native machine language. Symbian is compiled very close to the machine language and hence it does not require the processor that Android and iOS requires. Besides, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO STICK IN YOUR EAR A VERY POWERFUL PROCESSOR AND A VERY POWERFUL BATTERY POWERING IT UP? It's like sticking a microwave into your small brain through your ears! Wake up, earthling!
This phone is fast,robust and it's for power users and for those who understand what marketing did to suckers of iPhone. Funny, but whatever Apple says is 'new', like video calling, these suckers think Apple invented it. Next, when Apple says they have Swype texting, these suckers will again believe Apple invented it. Pathetic iPhone illiterates...
I give 10/10 for the above comment.. Who ever Made it.
