one of the main reason why Nokia is not successful in US is
because of their marketing strategies :(.
even Google Nexus failed miserably in US because operators
hold a big grip on the customers on what they buy.
hakeem, 01 Oct 2010n8 will be coming to malaysia by 1st week of october. already booked mine by depositing rm200... moreOMG! Now that is what you call value for money! I am also from Malaysia. Gonna give it some hands-on before getting it for myself. ;)

I wouldnt have bought this phone if it was running Android or iOS (as if :D). Even with Maemo/Meego I probably wouldve left it to the store.
Predict all you want, Symbian is gonna go strong for a good while, easily at least N8s lifespan.
with the rising popularity of android phones and with everyone predicting the demise of symbian, i am having second thought about buying this phone. nokia should concentrate the US market coz when you are succesfull in the US you can be very successfull everywhere. look at iphone and android phones.
Preorders will be delivered from October 20th onwards in India.
But delivery is based on FCFS.
Price = INR 25,000 ( App 555 US$ ).
And importantly all colors will be available ;).

Emix, 01 Oct 2010Wheeze how u lock and unlock N8? There is no side slide button anymore?As Ali wrote below me, the physical unlock slider is still there. You can also press the home/symbian/whatever button and then tap on "Open" button that pops un on the screen to unlock.
But I havn't come across a single "command" in the phones usage that required the sliding we've seen on earlier models. Naturally theres lots of thing you swipe in the screen, but not like "slide to fill this bar to do .
