There are few themes but I didn't really try em cos I like the default one. Theres some new theme you can download that has new icons for the default "apps". Called "Midnight" or something, the new icons look very good.
Could be there's a live wallpaper but I don't want one to eat my battery, could be there isnt by default but once again, ovi.com

n8 will be coming to malaysia by 1st week of october.
already booked mine by depositing rm200.
nokia will add another 1 year to warrant the hp plus a free back cover is included.
the retail price is RM 1599 or USD 519.
cant hardly wait to play with my new toy.
I think that N8 is best all around multimedia device avilable on market today!
Maybe it doesnt have biggest screen and best resolution or fastest processor but what N8 has is enought for one mobile phone.
And this is actualy not just a phone its multimedia player, game console, hd camera...
So please stop compearing this monster with half products like wave or iphone. They miss many features that N8 have!
Can't wait to buy me N8!!

On Nokia N8, the RAM is 256MB and ROM is 512MB. Yes, ROM was not the only problem on N97. Touchscreen sensitivity problems (resistive unit), inadequate RAM were some of the few.
Mac, 01 Oct 2010Now that is tops!!! Did it give you an option to store it there or did it just store it there ... moreAll versions of symbian give you the option to select prefered storage. The thing is, like all mobile smartphone os, while the bulk of the apps package such as the graphics and code can be stored on external storage and mass memory, certain key components and logs need to be stored on the rom. Still, i doubt anyone could probably run into rom related problems on the n8. I doubt you can get enough apps worth to fill the rom on 16gb mass memory and a 32gb memory card. The problems with the n97 were more than just rom.
Gerald, 01 Oct 2010what is the meaning of ROM??? and what is the difference between ROM and RAM???ROM stands for Read Only Memory and is used to store the hardwired stuff such as OS, Web Kit and other stuff that the device needs to boot and function normally. RAM (Random Access Memory) on the other hand is used to hold the currently running applications such as open web pages, open applications, etc. The contents of RAM keep changing with the time according to what the user is doing whilst the contents of ROM remain the the same unless a firmware update ( the kind of update we carry out using Nokia Software Updater) is carried out. In earlier versions of symbian some applications used to be installed in ROM as well, which made those devices slow.

Have ever heard "Google"? ;-)

Did it give you an option to store it there or did it just store it there all on it's own? The older versions didn't give you an option at times and when that happened, it just stored it on the ROM. That just slowed the Phone down. If Nokia has indeed fixed that problem....scores!!!

Nokia (symbian foundation) seem to have got it right this time round. How about answering calls in locked mode? Do you get the usual slider, which created a host of problems with the N97s.
Check the low light test with N8 video

I downloaded the from OVI Store and made it install em last night and I didnt change anything or move anything. All the games went to the 16gb internal memory by default.

I ran search in both C:/ and the internal memory and with "angry" it found bunch of stuff from the 16 GB memory, but nothing at all from C:/
Same goes for NFS:Shift, Simon Says and some stupid Cube game :D
Wheez, 01 Oct 2010Its now early OCTOBER for the USA......
Stop pretending to be me, please.
And once again, as for the video. It will not go live now/ever it seems. It's literally impossible to try to upload anything with my current internet. Maybe if I'd go somewhere with a more stable connection, but I don't see that happening.
Sorry to let you guys down, but I can assure you that the video was utter crap anyways. I'm sure there will pop videos of the released N8 soon anyways, made by professionals.
Sorry, once again.
