@ Sam : SAM i am also from KOLKATA and I want to pre-order the N8. But can you tell me which store did you pre-order from and how are you so sure about the price? I checked out with the Nokia Priority store at Ekdalia and they told me that the price is definitely more than 27000 INR and they are asking for a booking amount of 5000 INR. If you can tell me the store where you have pre-booked your set, I can find out for myself and if I find that convincing enough, I will also pre-book the blue one for myself. I actually want to purchase a new handset before the impending Pujas.
Wheez, 22 Sep 2010I'll post this again in case someone missed. Preview/first thoughts:
http://my-symbian.com/... morea symbian site liking a symbian phone? gasp! what a shocker!
the only thing this phone has going for it that others dont have are usb on the go, and penta band connection.
the usb on the go is too situational imo, unless you plan to carry a cable with you all day. the apps arnt all that great since most developers go with an OS that makes them money, so unless nokia some how steps there game up in the next year or so you wont see anything great from ovi. also symbian 4 should be coming sometime next year which makes me wonder if nokia will put any effort into its S3 lineup.
from all the videos i've seen via youtube about this phone, including ones from nokia world 2010, im disappointed. the phone is laggy in certain menus yet fluid in others, why? the pinch to zoom on photos is garbage, and the LACK of pinch to zoom in the maps is laughable. there is simply no excuse for nokia to make a phone that still lags the way it does, for the selling price that they are asking for, not to mention the wait times.
i was originally with nokia, loved my n86 to death, then got an iphone 4, love it, but i miss customizations and what not, so im going galaxy S soon and will hopefully settle on android for the time being.
for anyone looking to get this phone, dont expect anyhing too great, symbian 4 is where i think nokia will do much better but for now, there isnt anything great with symbian 3.
Does the N8 supp0rt Swype because all I c is it being sh0wn on YouTube wit the Android OS
i am in india is nokia n8 again delayed? if it is nokia should get award for most worst company of the year.
Mark, 22 Sep 2010hey i read a comment frm smone sayin tht with da n8 we gt a free bluetooth stereo headset..?? ... moreTrue for some places, not everywhere. I think UK preorders get a free HDMI cable or something (like the real cable, not just an adapter).
Try to see your local Nokia store, if it says there, its correct :D

[deleted post]I guess you are replying to the wrong person. I'm on your side here, I replied to that Samsung fan and if you were meant to reaply to me, you read it wrong, cos I didn't say anything bad about Nokia there :D
Well looks like the verdicts out. The US and UK website have changed end of sept to end of oct. Hope this phone comes while we are still young

I wish I could put my hands on one unit too!
Have you tested it enough to comment on the Battery life and sunlight legibility?
Would appreciate your input!

You and me can take a bug or two, but many others won't.
I've used the N8 pretty much every week for the last month several times a week and I've noticed no software issue. I wonder where did that horribly severe software issue pop up from :D
Wheez, 22 Sep 2010Yeah, certainly they lose some customers with delays, but it's better to lose them to a delay ... moreWell, I am not sure... I mean, if these last issues could be fixed with a sofware upgrade, I wouldn´t mind having a few bugs with it for a few weeks...And I don´t think that this will be seen as bad as this delay...
But maybe this is more severe issues...
