But it's there if you need it. as for the stopwatch, calender and so on its there. If there's something you need that's not there you can download it. Don't worry all the areas are covered. What more can you expect from Nokia the world biggest mobile maker and Symbian the world most popular Operating System and still is leading by more than 40% .
They give the best support unlike Samsung, LG, Sonyericsson and iPhone. They are always updating over the air so that you have the latest software and improvements. I came from Samsung and SE and will will continue to stick with Nokia as I like their support.
Anybody knows if the 3G will work.. I live in the USA and have ATT as the provider and have 3G service which is 850 the frequency. And if I travel to the Philippines and put a prepaid sim card will the 3G work there since they operate on a different frequency I think like 2100 UTMS... anybody know.......
I just wonder what all these CNN, BBC.. icons are all about, and can you wipe them out the screen whenever you don't need them?! My major concern is wheteher Nokia N8 has the samsunglike organizer(tasks, convertor, calendar, stopwatch, timer..), which I'm so used to because of frequent abroad travel and working out?! Thanx!

To all that say that The Home screen is slightly laggy because it uses live/Active widgets eg. BBC, CNN, Email, Social networking and many more unlike the Android and iPhone which uses mainly just icons which are really just shortcuts. So in this aspect I think Nokia is miles ahead. Not to mention why do you want to open the battery compartment as the SIM and Memory card slots are exterior. Therefore the slight lag as its trying to retrieve info. Just my two cents.
oh really Gregg. That's nice. Where did you see it? I am planning to buy N8. :) Great starting price.
When are you people going to understand, a better lookin UI with tons of animations doesn't make a OS better. IOS (the proclamed king of the eyecandy) lacks a lot of features such as bluetooth file transfer to tell one, Android (the new contender) may look "cool" because of all its transitions, effects and customization but the way it handles the processes is really rubish and that's why it needs those monster processors wich drains the battery in 5-8 hours. Only thing I can agree with some of the haters here is that Symbian needs more usefull apps, I don't know why many developers stopped making apps for Symbian (maybe it's to hard to program for Symbian or it doesn't give as much profits as other OS's) but Nokia is working to make programing for Symbian easier (Qt) and more profitable so maybe we'll see a lot of apps coming to symbian in the next months.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010Hey, my electric blue N8 has been posted to me :-) Should be in my hands by Tuesday morning. C... moreWhere are you located? I'm in USA...was told our pre-orders would ship next week.
Go Nokia...this still trips me out! Awesome...
Hey, my electric blue N8 has been posted to me :-) Should be in my hands by Tuesday morning. Come,bring it on baby . . . Bluetooth 3.0 is the feature I am after. Yeah, my laptop has it too. It will be lighting fast to stream video to my hidef flatscreen. Who needs blueray discs anymore? :-)
[deleted post]Obviously u didn't passed math, the n8 was officially announced months ago...it brings new symbian 3, with new features, that i haven't seen on any other phone (Android or Iphone). I think the company with really slow speed on advancing it's OS is apple, just this year with iphone 4 they bring videocalls "over wifi" and only with "another iphone" like it's something new that never existed...my old nokia n73 (4 years old) can do that with symbian S60 V3. No bluetooth files sharing, no files manager, no "Flash" support on the browser, etc, etc, etc,. Think u should think twice before talking none sense
I'm not hating on the N8. I'm actually getting this phone. I was just wondering though if perhaps the video frame rate could potentially be increased to 30fps through a future software update. It seems that the Broadcom BPU is capable of it so I hope so!!
