On the other hand,N8's UI,processor,OS,touch is sooo poor compared to HD .... That's the problem...Btw,I just hate samsung phones,yakk!!!
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2010if u couldn't find a potrait qwerty keyboard Its ur fault... Its available i've used it myself... moreThere is a Portrait Keyboard but there is no PORTRAIT QWERTY KEYBOARD!!! Nokia 5800 has a portrait qwerty keyboard but NOT IN SYMBIAN 3. What is wrong with Nokia. I was so disappointed with this. It's a determining factor for me getting N8. Tried it 3 times in nokia outlets and the nokia employee says no. Even GSM Arena says it's a disappointment in the texting department. I was really looking forward to getting this phone until I've found out there's no portrait qwerty keyboard. A phone is for calling and sms. No portrait qwerty keyboard means it's a step backward. It's things like that makes users runaway unless they're correcting it with their new firmware. Mind you, I'm still a Nokia N82 user who's looking to upgrade. If no portrait qwerty keyboard, I might as well stick to N82 for awhile after all it's a phenomenon according to some of you.
