Has anyone in USA received their N8?
I pre-ordered and have not received an email about it shipping?
Thanks all! :O)
Nokijus, 03 Oct 2010I am still waiting Nokia N8 with a QWERTY buttons.Its got the touchscreen qwerty..
btw,PHONE OF THE YEAR!!
Being a longtime Nokia user and a current iPhone 4 user I can assure everyone that the iPhone 4 really lacks features most Nokia smartphones nowadays have. So while itís not all roses it does have some positive things too:
- like UI is just simple and it works (although I could use an advanced mode setting, being too simple),
- there are way more games available on the platform and iím talking really good games
- the apps are great, way more than on the symbian platform-have some really useful apps but out of the 225′000 most are junk apps, and
- the screen is the best in mobile right now
- itís the best phone in the world for music (integrated iPod)
- browsing the web is a joy
- touch input workís flawlessly probably best in the industry
The negative list is twice as long and basic features such as
- erasing an individual call it canít handle
- you canít sync wirelessly
- there is not cheap navigation method, tomtom is very very expensive, might as well get stand alone unit
- adding all those apps can be quite the drain in your wallet
- when you connect your phone to your pc, you have no access into the hard drive of the phone, only through iTunes (sucks bigtime)
- if you have an appointment soon, tough luck it doesnít show you anywhere on your lock screen nor home screen (very very annoying) actually a better term would be useless
- you canít delete all contacts at once
- no sd card
- no FM RADIO. hello itís a media device and has no radio! very annoying!
- you cant change unlock swipe direction
- the home screen is as boring as it gets, just some stupid glossy icons, no live widgets to be found
nothing else comes to my mind but thatís it. Whoever gets the N8 or any other (E7, C7, C6-01) will have plenty to brag about to current iphone users. Simply put neither one is perfect.
The smart smartphone buyers are those who buy smartphone not based on that biased reviews,
it is the truth that, nokia n8 camera, sound quality is unrivalled
most importantly, nokia does not overcharge you, it worths every cent
Ryan , 03 Oct 2010I HELD OFF 9 MONTHS FOR THIS 3 STAR NONSENSE.
I was very tempted to jump in and order it ... moredo u believe in anything u read? as being the truth?
TV taught you how to feel, now real life has no appeal! You must be easily manipulated...
Wot about going to a store and trying phone for yourself and reaching your own conclusions?
I HELD OFF 9 MONTHS FOR THIS 3 STAR NONSENSE.
I was very tempted to jump in and order it without seeing reviews but here is the truth
TECHTRADER REVIEW = 3STAR
T3 REVIEW = 3 STAR
CNET REVIEW = 3 STAR
Well done Nokia another fine mess and you only kept everyone waiting for 1 year.
Its about time Nokia just let HTC/SAMSUNG/APPLE buy them out.
Only think Nokia phones have going for them is HARDWARE as always have found components to be the highest spec.
I currently have Galaxy S and Desire and should have N8 but I aint touching this thing
Guys does any1 knw the actual price of N8 in India including tax,like i heard 25K is excluding tax,and it can b 30K wen it comes to the final amount.
To all nokia fans where did n8 release ? Which countries ? Cause in middle east its not released yet.!
The beauty of this phone is perfection
ui not good enough? dont worry, it is just software, nokia can change it anytime
app and games not enough? dont worry, ovi store is now growing significantly after qt sdk
Don't know if this was posted or not but T3 did a review for N8 and they gave it 3/5.
I'm glad Nokia is releasing this phone.. It will be a lesson for those stubborn Finns that you need to backup those "amazing" features with updated hardware (faster CPU, GPU, MORE RAM!!) and an updated, smoother, faster, user friendlier, and downright eye candyful OS to stay on top or in their case "stick around" =) (my 2 cents)
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010Can we use the bluetooth mouse to zoom in the photo on n8?
Why nokia does not make bluet... moreUmmm this is a Phone.. WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU NEED A MOUSE FOR?? This is not a laptop computer. The reason for having a multipurpose high-end phone is to settle some load like, not having to bring your DSLR camera to every event or not worrying to have to bring a computer so that you can use internet on the go.. it is not meant to be a replacement for a computer or a camera.
Simply put, a PHONE does not need a mouse to operate, or else it would defeat the purpose to have a multifunction phone.
