Since I haven't owned the Wave or received my N8 yet I can't really give you any information. WHat you could do is ask a few people. Ask Wheez who has his N8 now, or ask someone who has the Wave phone. they will be of more useful information to provide you have fully experienced using the phones/...!
What do you want in your next phone?

Hi, im planning to buy a new phone. I currently own a Nokia 5800xm. I want some insights on this phone, because im currently confused which phone to buy (samsung wave or N8). Dont badmouth the phones, i wont take them. I need actual stats, experience. wave costs Approximately 428 USD here, N8 will be released here soon approximately 571 USD. Right now im banking on wave due to the price difference. Im buying next weekend. Thank you.
Wheez, 10 Oct 2010Give some arguments, what disappoints u in it? What makes it a no high end phone?im not nokia hater im not brand loyal
Thanks for the info Wheez. It sounds like nothing has changed much in the N8's stock browser for S^3. Confirmed by anonymous that the new browser is being worked on!
As in S60_1 on my 5800 it is already possible to open new windows through the web browser. But no controlled way to do it, like new tabs or anything.
Also one other thing to note currently in S60^1 Web browser, from the first web browser page you open, it seems to be one instance that runs all other new windows & so this way. If you close original window, say goodbye to all other windows open aswell...
So I guesse Nokia devs need to allow each web page to run in ot's own memory space. New instance for every page. Then we would have true controlled multiple page browsing on our hands. It sure would make use of multi tasking...

Engineer Man, 10 Oct 2010Wheez. Have got your N8? I'm sure it was you who trialed the phone & gave us your thoughts... moreHavn't trialed any prototypes apart from a demo model that was available in the finnish flagship store, but I've owned the N8 as of last day of september, that's when us finns started getting our preorders.
For those other questions, read blow.
A controlled way to open new windows/tabs any time you want on the N8s default browser:
When in browser, tap the URL/search engine button. Google something random, open as many search results as you want new windows to be opened. Ta-dah, you now have multiple windows open. In the browser menu theres a "Change window" button which will let you operate between them, I'm not sure what is the exact english translation for that, though, probably just that :D
It's abit tricky though and more time consuming than having a button for that, but it works.
I'm going to sleep now, shame that the real questions (and not the BLABLALBLBA MA WAVE IS BETTTAR THAN YO MOMMA!) came this late. Feel free to ask, I'll answer when I wake up in 8-9 hours.
wheez tell me how you open multiple tabs in N8's browser ?
Engineer Man, 10 Oct 2010No, I mean there is no Copy & paste string text in the Web Browser currently on my N5800. ... moreThe copy & paste works in the current browser in N8 in at least some places/ways. Anything you can edit yourself, you can copy/paste. Not sure (havnt really tried but at least doesnt seem doable at first thought) if theres any way to currently copy paste normal text that is already written on the page.
As said, N8s browser also has a full support for new windows, apart from lacking a button to open said new windows in a controlled manner.

Wheez. Have got your N8? I'm sure it was you who trialed the phone & gave us your thoughts. Does the N8's Web browser finally have copy & paste, multiple windows?
Although Copy & paste is available anywhere else within Symbian. It's even available for the Nokia Messaging Email client but not the WEB Browser... :)

First use your finger to mark and then ... moreNo, I mean there is no Copy & paste string text in the Web Browser currently on my N5800. It's not possible even in the latest firmware Im currently running, neither are multiple page windows!
