For all im u have ebuddy (can manage all accounts like yahoo, gtalk, windows live, facebook, and many more simultaneously) or nimbuzz...
For all round audio and video you have core player as it plays almost any file available in video format, and many more divx players and flv players on the list...
For games i don't know about the ones u mentioned, not on my favourites list, but i've played games like ea fight round2, ea nfs shift, tomb raider, and many more, and i guess ngage 2.0 games are even more fun with some ranging like 12mb of data so u can imagine the graphics...
a must read reviews before buying the n8 :
In India, you can buy N8 @ 23999/- from Flipkart.com ...
all the colors are available there....

I've about 75 app and 45 3d games on my previous symbian wha are all greatly useful, with ones like msdict 7, advanced devicke locks, and also quickoffice 6, all hacked and free, running great on my phone...
Android has a great app gallery too but u can get all that u want for free, for eg, document editor, and many other app which will loosen a bit of your pockets... If u are superrich and u don't care go ahead...
Symbian is anyways gonna develop faster than both as it has the biggest developer support, it has just put its feet in the touch environment and u can see the reaction, imagine with things like meego, n9 n sym 4, already on the developers board...
was thinking of buying this phone, have even made a pre order but after reading the reviews, all i can say is this is a great camera phone. but if one is to surf the net or want apps, this phone is not the one. so now i may go for android phone. my friend have samsung galaxy s and have been praising it since he bought it and the apps are awesome. same goes to my friend who have iphone.
Symbian ^3 is for mid-range nokia phones! Nokia is workn on an high end meego phone to beat android and ios and i thnk n8 is awesome 4 a mid-range phon managin 2 scare da android phons, i cn only imagn wat meego wil do.
ovi store hasnt got great applications and games. Nokia dictionary is very good but missed many words, i wish they provide us with some good programs same like video messengr for importana im's skype, windows llfe ,gmail ,yahoo , etc . Video player plays all formats. Youtube downloader, live tv same like spb tv but at least 200 channels allover the world. Hi graphics nice games same like chess ,solitair ,car race ,brain puzzels ,etc.
sunil, 15 Oct 2010whats means by MULTITOUCH, i hv tested on npd today and was saw that screen sense only finguremultitouch means u can use 2 fingers at once ! lol when doing the pinch zoom thingy for example.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2010Android is the future of smartphones, symbian is looserAndroid may seem to be the leader of mobile OS, but first check why symbian still exists:
-more apps available
-needs less RAM than Android ( sorta like windows vista & XP)
-Symbian can run non-touch phones
-& lastly being older it has more themes, so its awfully easy to modify !

nokia should give people a app that u can use the xenon flash as a video light that would be cool i am using the n86 now and i love how bright the video is on the n86 but i am looking to get the n8 just now its way better than the i shit phone
OVERPRICED. No VALUE FOR MONEY
20K is the maximum cost. but why nokia used symbian on it. they should have used android
The future for Symbian will be a real different experience than what you think of it right now! Symbiotic relationships anyone. A Technology convergence of SMARTPHONES. SMART Hardware, SMART Software with the user. Your phone will know you! lol
whats means by MULTITOUCH, i hv tested on npd today and was saw that screen sense only fingure
Many people are still unaware that the Kinetic scrolling on the homescreen isn't a lag issue. Its a part of the touch framework design.
The delay is normal. The touch interface waits for a moment for commands to be reversed in case the user doesn't want to swipe to the next homescreen for sure. Thats why there is a short wait timeout period.
If you want to change between homescreens instantly. You can use the middle command bar button. This is clearly put by the AllAboutsymbian site. I'm absoultely sure Nokia will improve things much.
I will positivly certainly be purchasing one of these phones I think. I was interested in the WP7 HTC's until I found out what's currently missing in Hard/Soft department. So they won't be getting my money any time soon.
I already read many interesting facts about the changes in S^3 & in facts about the hardware itself. The capabilities are endless. There are some grea apps going to be created making use of many of the phones features.
As regards to first releae firmware there are bound to be some bugs or issues. Improvements will be inevitablely likely. New features added, new capabilities. Symbian foundation have some amazing ideas & concepts for the future which will put Android, WP7 to shame & even IOS.
