err... please there are other people interested in Nokia still.. dont turn the spoiled brats into better kids now...
@wheez: on the left side of the phone there is the microsd,sim card and that HOLE that comes next ? what is it a notification light? and then the microusb slot.. i know the notification is on the menu key itself but still what is it?
Hey guys ive noticed on the Nokia N8 it comes with the AC 15 charger which the plug the pins are round. Im from the USA and that plug wont go in the standard outlet we have here, does it come with and adapter.... or a difffent plug for the USA
Ajay, 02 Oct 2010There are reports on the web that applications are hard to find. And the keypad is no good. Is... moreGo to ovi.com and see the selection urself. In few days there has appeared many new apps. I dont really care/have use for apps myself. Symbian3 can use old S60 apps and apps written in Qt will work im S3, S4 and meego in future.
The on screen qwerty and keypad are very good and responsive. I wouldnt change a thing
To all the people defending Symbian3 OS by talking about N8 hardware features.. saying "but it can connect to hdmi" or "but it has a 12mpx camera" won't make up for the fact that Symbian OS is OUT DATED, SLoW and down right ugly!!
hey wheez can u please tell us about the battery lasting. This phone is an ultimate device from nokia but the only thing i doubted since i am following this is its 1200 mah battery which i feel can lag in performance due to the enormous features provided along with the phone. Please let us know as thats the only factor thats keeping me to order it. If not right away u can let me know after using it for say 3-4 days.
Why do you have to compare it with android apple or anything else.....
To be frank Nokia have lost somewhere... but are getting back slowly NOW!! Look at the N8, it has to offer a 3.5" Amoled, Capacitive touch screen better than ANY NOKIA .. symbian 3 (missed symbian after using n900.. n900 was a complete phone though :P, needed a 12mp NOKIA) USB OTG and a NOKIA OVI MAPS for free... i dont want to talk about the HDMI cuz it dosn matter to me..
i want this phone for my self.. when compared to others Nokia N8 is on par by one thing or the other. that could be the camera or the USB OTG or the body.. what matter is that what i am satisfied with... if you have never used an android or iphone it wont matter to you..cuz being a nokia fan i have never bought a phone other than nokia.. it has never let me down.. i maybe a frog in the well who hasn seen other capabilites but guess what i am the king of that well ;).. i have used the nokia Ngage-QD , N82(gosh what a phone :D) 5800 XM and the N900(abandoned beauty)... well each one had its own quality.. n8 has em all and much better(well n900 had a diff os that beat symbian.. people who used n900 know what i am talking about.. but Maemo is still a baby compared to symbain and people who have used both will understand).. what more do IIIIII need?

One thing you say is true; you are NOT versed with Android.
Please know what you're actually talking about before making derogatory comments. Talk is cheap.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010homescreen moves so slowly n sluggishly n reacts after a delay....not goodFor me its completely smooth animation. The "delay" is intentional and its due to the fact that they didnt wanted it to follow the finger realtime like in photogallery for example. It waits for the full swipe command till it changes. Everybody may not like the design, but cos some homescreen widgets use realtime sode swiping, it may be better this way.
If u dont like the swipe "delay", tap the homescreen change button (3 dots) and its instant

Please, the hardware of sony ericsson phones are pathetic. They don't last long. And as far as iphone goes, it's price is out of this world. Even if it is marginally better than the n8 not worth spending that much amount of money

to summarise n8 gives u maximum features in one device at a competitve price may be with less eye candyness and smoothness compared to iphone 4 and android phones. if any one wants to buy iphone 4 he has to be prepared to shell out lot of money 1st to buy the phone then to buy the apps and be prepared to do it all thru its app store. the actual competitors in features for n8 are android phones with better eyecandyness n smoother interface but still missing few things like free navigation, hdmi out, usb on the go. So budget conscious ppl will be deciding bet n8 and htc desire hd and iphone 4 will be out of qn.
AJay, 02 Oct 2010Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?its ok but as compared to my brothers android xperia x10, my n8 software is not that special n i used it less to confirm any hang problems or not
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010only thing good about this phone is the camera Well that was the main attraction. How about symbian 3? Does it hang a lot?
Looks like us in India have to wait till october 13th. What's the verdict guys. Does the phone live up to the hype?
Wheez, 02 Oct 2010No way. No lag or slowness for me. Dinesh: Thanks, im 20homescreen moves so slowly n sluggishly n reacts after a delay....not good
