"OK - I can give you an update. Despite Nokia UK giving us (and others) this phone and saying it was a review unit, they are now saying it isn't actually representative of the release version.
As we only do full reviews of final products, we will move this article to a 'hands on review' status and take off the score.
When we do finally see a reviewable model, we will update and republish as a scored review.
Our apologies for this. We review stuff in good faith so you can imagine how pleased we are at the moment.
Editor in Chief"
so Wheez did you face the n8 issues that Nick faced or did not?
Come on guys let's go just 5% more and nokia n8 will be the first and only phone to get 100% daily interest.
Let do this all you nokia die hard fans, come on baby let's do this.

the whole point of this site is to "show" the differences...
if you cant "show" the "why" is this better than that, then please stop "posting" and read more..
I see a lot of iphone fans posting on this page just bashing nokia but nokia will be great in the long run.
Well done nokia, well done.

And why would someone have all the phones? LOL. You think your phones are girls?
Alright im done bashing, im really bored but ill try not to be so negative next time,
Peace out nokies
Mark, 03 Oct 2010So you say, but why. What exactly is that different to you. Mind you, I use all of them, just ... moreAdd to that android uses a linux kernnel whereas meego uses pure linux. Symbian is compatible with that too!!
[deleted post]It's weird how the majority of the smartphone users decide to use Symbian if it just purely fails compared to Android. And thats even with the worst iteration of Symbian! Symbian^3 is miles, miles ahead of any previous Symbian. Have you seriously ever even used it? Or are you another techradar/youtube warrior?
I wouldn't trade my N8 for any Android phone or iPhone, even if you gave me 3 of them. Android is great, but it does not share the same values with me, at least not yet.
And why do you keep posting this here, if you like Android, why not talk with other people who like android? We don't care about android here, if we did, we wouldn't really be here.
[deleted post]So you say, but why. What exactly is that different to you. Mind you, I use all of them, just want to know why you think Android is better? From a technology point of view it is very backwards actually. Running a VM on a mobile device? Please.
Fail.com, 03 Oct 2010All Nokia does is make phones...they should have made a deal with google android, these phones... moreI dont think you've seen the vision of Nokia. Go to meego.com and have a look. Nokia's meego and symbian ^3 and ^4 will be streets ahead very soon. Take a look for yourself. If large carmakers will back the os which is compatible with other media then that would mean that nokia would have created a niche market for themselves without anyone even noticing that. Now thats a strategy!! Do you see nokia panicking when SE and Samsung backed out? No!
don't read any review of a phone in other sites except
that's not fair they are all iphone fanboy and steve job give them 1000000 dollar to them for 1 month bill
i'm a fan of all phone except iphone
Wheez, 03 Oct 2010The CPU has nothing to do with Symbian and is back up by the powerful GPU. You can try to make... moreMy whole family is taking turns at bashing it! Because my bro got one! And now he wants my phone!
I was cotemplating this phone, but i realized a jailbroken iphone = Android. And android + Iphone = Ridiculous success.
The only thing iphone sux at is Flash, however, there is an app you can get on cydia that lets you support flash on popular sites. And their are porn sites you can watch.....
SOFTWARE, 03 Oct 2010At this day and age it is all about SOFTWARE ppl. Symbian is garbage software. Nokia is trying... moreWhat a bunch of fail. Of course were are discussing the software here. You are using a simple bait and switch strawman argument here.
Like this. "Android kills bunnies, and they dont care about software because they are robots, and they suck. There is not gravity app for Android so it sucks. There is not ovi maps for Android so it sucks. It sucks at battery life, it sucks at bluetooth and best of all, it will not exist in a few years time. Who would want to go for that?"
But, the funny part is, there is actually some truth in this post, there have been many developers asking if Android is the right way to go, now that Oracle is going for the jugular.
N8 is good but not the best. It lacks many features.....not good processor , not supports Xvid/Divx file formate.......big camera but no lense protector.......
SOFTWARE, 03 Oct 2010At this day and age it is all about SOFTWARE ppl. Symbian is garbage software. Nokia is trying... more80% Apple Apps are just fart, no value at all. Nokia/Symbian is is open enough and doesn't need fart apps. It has and will have ALL the necessary value apps/games.

You can try to make claims all you want, if we want to compare raw power between currently popular phones, the N8 does not shame next to iPhone 4, Galaxy S or EVO 4G for example. Each phone has slightly different emphasis, but overall are pretty even.
Also, don't try to post negative things with different names, we all see your IP and it's the same with that of the "JJ".
