I AM THE STIG, 06 Oct 2010When u try to switch between the homescreens it takes a lil longer then the flow u get in ifon... moreYou say that the nokia takes longer than the i-phone to switch between home screens?? thats funny there was me thinking (holding an i-phone) that technically the i-phone doesnt have a home screen, just straight onto its "menu". the i-phones "home screen" is like the HTC desire already in its menu
[deleted post]Thanks for the info on the N8.
I have a few questions from an N97 user. I'm not sure if you can answer since you only had 30 minutes with the unit, but here goes.
1. Is there a limit to the number of shortcuts you can put on any home screen. I have heard that you can only put two shortcut widgets which means a total of only 8 shortcuts on a home screen.
2. Have you encountered any memory errors? I have encountered them when I have Gravity, Contacts, and either Skyfire or Opera Mobile (not the Mini) running at the same time.
3. Any issues with the ring tone defaulting to the Nokia one?
Thanks, in advance.

iphone ap... moremost apps for ifone are unnecessary, while they may looked a good addition on my ifone, i scarcely used them. the ones that were imprtant, i had to pay extra for them while i get the same apps for free on symbian.
Although i agree that most apps lag on symbian fones, they don't lag on symbian^3 atleast the onesi have tried.

iphone apps are not only games,there are plenty of free softwares that covers all the needs of different people interests these apps are not available in symbian and even when available they look ugly and laggy,and for android the apps are not as much as iphone apps but miles a way better than symbian .
nokia is trying to win some time by symbian because the meego still could not be finished.
Don't do the same mistake i have done.... Friends take my advice don't pre-book any phone.... when i pre-booked Nokia 5800 i spent 22k for it. when it actually released in the market the price was 18.5k... don't fall prey to this marketing gimmicks to cash in the hype.... better wait for it to release in the market. get the initial reviews they make a wise decision.... good luck.

Mind u the music and foto section is as pacy as the ifone is.

the phone looks awesome and i cant wait to get my hands on it, i am currently using a SE x10 and im loving it, where u say driods are just powerful and dont look to good, u obviously havent seen this beauty :P
But i cant wait to use this phone, im hopefully getting our stores live demo when it comes :P
Keep well mate :)
Just returning home from a nokia outlet in mumbai- india. Had a hands on experience with the n8. it was magical. way better then any symbian fone i have ever used. There were issues with the demo phone.
anyways i went and booked two one for me and one for my brov (bday gift) in different colors. i chose blue and black (dark grey) for my brov. price is inr 26259.
For the past few days i have tried to restrain myself from being involved in the great debate going on in the opinion section. But after having played with the N8 for a good 30 mins i would like to voice my opinion.
Symbian^3 is still miles apart from the swiftness and user experience as the ifone. And not as powerful as the droids. However i felt it strikes a fine balance.
giving you a lots of apps and featues and lacking on the pace. Then there is the question of the apps store of both companies. While the ifone wins that department hands on, it loses out to the n8 on many aspects. free maps, camera, otg, wi-fi, videocall etc.
I am willing to concur that the music album browsing and foto browsing on the n8 felt similar to the ifone.
However ifone has used and is still using several nokia technologies. Mainly the GSM technology.
Comparing the N8 to the droids is a bit tricky though.
While there are known handsets that have used droid 2.2 on low speed processors, it is now requiring a lot more power hence all major handset manufacturers are now using 700mhz or above to run googles OS. Droid looks pathetic on smaller screens and their aps store is not that great.
I have used ifone, droid fones and nokias.
When the ifone was first introduced, i was one of the first people to buy it.It was something different from all the others. However once the fun of swyping and games ended i got bored. i am currently using the nexus one and i can't explain the problems i face with the battery drainage and other issues.
The ifone is like a lamborghini countach, looks gorgious and sleek, is well made, however all the things u want in the car are optional xtras,
The droids are like muscle cars, powerful and quick, but hideous in looks and runs out of fuel in no time.
The N8 on the other hand is like a Nissan GTR or R8.
looks pretty, has great technology and yet so austentatious that people shud consider u a playboy or
wealthy arab. well priced and so powerful and ferocious that it can beat a 911 round the nurburgring (related to gtr).
I have been patient during my tryst with the ifone and droids and yet had a bitter sweet experience. It sems only just that i give the new symbian a fair chance.
Maybe i will regret my decision in the future however, i am pretty sure i am going to enjoy and cherish it for the moment. Can't wait enough for it.
[deleted post]lol i wonder how ignorant some people get.
anssi vanjoki, smartphone chief over at nokia explicitly said at nokia world 2010 that the n8 wasnt geared to take on the likes the droid and iphone..meego is you research noob.
Get your facts straight, the n8 has clearly bin hailed as the best cameraphone on the market and with hyperX already hacking away, i see a good future ahead for this little tiger.
You fail at understanding optimised systems...symbian is optimised to work on a mobile phone..android is a virtual machine running ontop of a linux build, thats why it needs a higher clock speed for leg room in processing.
Am not buying the n8....am holding out for the n9..meego will rock android solidly..jus think of the n900...and then think of how well its successor will perform...why do you think nokia is so silent about it? evn at nokia world nary a peep was afforded...thats coz nokia is keeping its cards close to its chest...waiting..(that and they want the n8 to sell well, coz honestly the n9 would disrupt the n8's sales)
oh, have a nice day
