Nokia wont use android and Nokia will not die away anywhere.
Just look at the daily interest and hits. Compare it to any other current smartphone. And you say Nokia is dying?

They have not kept ahead of the competition and the likes of htc etc have put the final nail in the coffin. I feel like with buying a laptop you will soon find the operating system will be the same on every phone, most likely android. And each phone manufacturer will as they are now add different features. You will not always bother who makes the device, but for quality you may go for a branded device, but that's the way the market will go. It will make it easy for applications and games to be made. Bada may too not be a dead duck, but do admire samsung for taking a risk. Nokia I love but sorry who cares now who makes the phone Nokia applications are not enough . Nokia needs to make android or there through as a smartphone company period!
Please answer a few questions 4 me
1-do u have nokia messaging(push email) activated?if yes how many accounts?
2-have u tested the battery life with and w/o data activated?
3-does it have smart dialling?if yes does it search also company/nickname/job etc?
prince78, 08 Oct 2010Thanks a lot Wheez.. U have been a great helping hand to me with all ur comments and posts. i'... moreThank you for your kind words. My crusade will go on a little further till large crowds such as india will get the device. As ive been amongst the first retail owners of the N8, I saw the need for defending its pride against the uncalled for hate its getting from fans of other brands, who are insecure due to N8s popularity.
Soon the phones success will be everywhere and the happy owners will steamroll the negative nokia haters, then my job is done
Before thr N8 i never paid attention to newest phones or read/wrote on forums like these. Im not sure if ill manage to just forget all this, cos ive now spent hundreds of hours reading and writing here. Its been extremely time consuming (time which i dont have cos of university), but i dont regret it :D

U have been a great helping hand to me with all ur comments and posts. i've been following all ur comments on N8 since last 7 days.. I'm a proud owner of a nokia 5800 and a nokia E72. E72 is a nice device balanced overall. The only thing i disliked about nokia 5800 was its laggy OS and inconsistency of tapping method..
With E72 i'm fully satisfied function wise but wanted a responsive touchscreen phone with a larger display.. For that i was considering samsung wave or galaxy S. But again i wanted the functionality Symbian OS.. Now after reading all ur comments and early reviews from various sites i've made up my mind that i will go for Nokia N8.. Thanks dude.. Please do continue ur good work.... Cheers..

I like you objective approach, but you need to do more research next time

Lots of Media Support.
Good software upgrade mechanism.
OK Features set.
Min-Priced handset sim free: 300$
Not many apps available.
Lots of apps.
Not open, as in most of the features are blocked.
Apps only via itunes.
Min-Priced handset sim free: 500$
Less resource intensive.
Less battery consumed.
Lots of apps.
Completely open, the user can use all the features to its full extent.
Negative Media Publicity.
Catching onto the new touch features.
Slow development pace.

The same applies to iphone or android... moresamsung has higher processor but battery is very bad..i charge twice a day my galaxy s.. galaxy s has mentioned as more battery power but it never worked what they said..android n.eed more power as well but still my SGS lags..so overall i prefer the phone should be well balanced whatever cpu or RAM

The same applies to iphone or android fans. Lets stop being fans of phone companies and start thinking about which phone to buy after seeing the phones and consulting people who own the phones. Basically i feel nokia has again taken a sick approach and not given us a fast processor. The present processor might be enough for symbian but imagine what a fast processor would have done. Regarding lower battery life that is no excuse, they need to also develop better batteries just like other phone companies like samsung and iphone have done.
Why such a low resolution display? Using to write reply on an Orange San Francisco, a k a Zte Blade. Let's see you get a 480x800 oled display that many feel is as good at that of a desire. Many like me were waiting for Nokia to produce a decent smart phone is this it? Even the phone I'm using that cost 99 uk sounds is better regarding speed of processor and screen , plus do feel anything symbian is past it's sell by date. Where are Nokia's android phones? Samsung can produce phones with different operating systems why not Nokia?
N8 will be available here in Pinas on Oct 23 on pre-orders.
it comes with a 16GB USB thumbdrive!
it is sad that all the haters leave their various forum to the n8 forum just to bash it even those very savvy people still say things that get me suprised at how savvy they really are. the nokia n8 is just one phone and no one phone that exactly complete cos in making a smartphone u have to give sumthin for the other. the say the n8 should do this like the iphone, do that like the andriods and that again like bada phones it is just one phone and it cant be all ur various phones at once.the n8 is the n8 and it has its high sides which out weighs its draw backs in my opinion n8 rocks and u guy are just threaten by its existence.
Must have apps and games for n8
nokia internet radio
garmin mobile xt
opera mobile mini
ovi maps racing and challenge
Nokia is a company that focus only on making phones,
n8 very close to perfection, but e7 is bit dissapointing
n9 will be popular if it is candybaf
From GSMArena review....
"it has every chance of being announced as the best Nokia smartphone since the N95."
