Finally got one yesterday (I'm not rich so it took some saving and a lot of searching, especially here in Croatia it's hard to find at a fair price), in pretty good condition. A bit battered and bruised but working perfectly. Could have afforded an used single-core Android or iPhone 3GS but I wanted this one as it suits my needs best. Good times ahead!
mihai, 07 Mar 2013I can put android(beta) on this device?how it will be run? There is no way to do that. Why would you do it anyway?
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2013how can i upgrade it to belle refresh version?is it good to upgrade?is that version better tha... moreIt has some improvements and some UI changes here and there. There is no problem upgrading it. To upgrade use Nokia suite, you can downloade it from here: http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/product/n8-00/downloads/
After installing, just plug your phone in your usb and follow the instructions, then wait for it to install everything it needs. After that just hit software update (the last but one green icon, from upper program). From there, just follow the instructions.
Nokia N8, still using it in March 2013. It's 3 year-old technology but it still is the best phone I can find out there. No need to replace it any time soon.
I hate that you can't change the battery without this special screwdriver, but now that I have, it should work for another couple of years. I can't find another phone out there that has all these features:
FM Receiver AND Transmitter
12 megapixel camera (8 is probably enough for me, but anyway)
microSD card slot
Maps and navigation that work offline without a dataplan!
A low-power mode that shows you a clock when it is locked in standby!
Alarm clock works even when the phone is switched off.
If you compare it to the new BB10, the CPU is a bit slow, the main UI is not as flashy... There is not as much RAM... But it is still the one device I want to keep on me at all times. Best camera. Best Phone. Best Alarm Clock. Radio Transmitter. Excellent Maps/Navigation.
And while the apps you can get for it are all different, there are quite a lot of apps available on the nokia store.
