Wheez, 03 Oct 2010Yes, theres an option to change default applications for different things. You can change at l... moreso wht? if I have best, do i need a change?? safari is best but android browser is a bit faster. can u change n8 music player to ipod?
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010u know it y they all are superior n u can check out the specs n compare them :)
Dont give us numbers, thats bull, give me the actual factual reasons that those devices are superior for my use case.
Handle a single email account well
Have Swype text entry
Images taken at night that look good (typical bar images)
Some 3d games
Solid build quality
Use opera mobile
Connect to my AV equipment
Be able to use it as a mass storage device for all kinds of media and work files
Now, please explain, point by point, what those devices can do in the above areas that the N8 cannot. And no, I do not use Gmail, I connect to exchange.
Go ahead, make my day.
Mark, 03 Oct 2010Good work Wheez. Keep it factual and to the point. Perhaps this has been asked already, but ha... moreYes, theres an option to change default applications for different things. You can change at least default browser, photo viewer, video viewer and email.
Angry birds and NFS on N8 is awesome. Loved playing it.
Same experience with C6 too...
[deleted post]Good work Wheez. Keep it factual and to the point. Perhaps this has been asked already, but have you been able to use opera mobile as the default browser on the device? As in, weblinks in an email open Opera mini instead of the stock browser?

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010yes i saw them n some of them said same old outdated symbian n the reason why i am disappointe... moreWell, it pretty much only looks the same than earlier Symbians. Symbian^3 has been overhauled for touch screen devies, no stupid double taps and endless popups of making sure if you wanna do that. Sure, there are still a fair bit of menus, but do you know what having the menus there bring? Options and features. The menus seem very logical to me and I don't feel them as any kind of a burden, actually I don't really even get how would I come along without them, when I wouldn't have the options directly there at hand.
Those reviews were quite clueless though. Did you read the spot about "wading through pages of icons and menus and swiping and scrolling just to find the email client" or something? When I unlock the phone, my email client is right there (widget), I see the first 2 messages there and whether they have been read or not, a single tap will open the full email client for me. It's not an iPhone, so they shouldn't use it like the iPhone.
It's all cool that you can go all day with the iPhone without opening a single menu unlike in the Symbian, but you have nowhere near the same freedom as you will on Symbian.
I'd still really suggest that you try it out yourself if possible, but HTC Desire is a good device by all means, can't go much wrong with that :)
Samsung lack of support and no signal iPhone makes this a clear winner.Camera is best there is and symbian is usable. ps.those with low IQ dont need this phone.
after long wait, this ships with 1,5 yr old OS,processor, low 256ram, sunlightphobia OLED and ugly menu icons?? Nokia fans ur brainwashed
