And opening the battery thingie with the screwdriver will most likely void warranty, so you should make sure before doing that :D
What to do if the phone freezes? I have used 3 different symbian phones and all pf them has the nasty habit of freezing occasionally. Most of the cases I have to remove and re-insert the battery to make the phone work again. What we will do if this N8 freezes?
Do we need to carry a screwdriver all the time to open the phone whenever it freezes?
Seriously dude?! iPhone didnít even have a wallpaper until now! Plus, it doesnít have ďthemesĒ, itís just the wallpaper that youíre talking about. And really, who cares? Most people change the wallpaper anyway!
Plus, the wallpaper in the n8′s default themes are sort of live wallpapers. They react to Rotation sensor. And Nokia provides really good wallpapers with their phones.
Itís possible to enable theme effects for at least the default themes/backgrounds after which the background looks ďswirlingĒ (itís quite neat).
Finding this setting is the difficulty as itís hidden under some 5 levels of hierarchy in a painfully hildon-legacy way.

ok so this is looking good,canít wait for final release,have been very patient as my upgrade was due 2 months ago!Had a SE X10 but was not overly impressed,screen was lovely though and liked the browser,otherwise donít know what all the fuss is about regarding android,maybe iím a blinkered nokia fiend!Anyway sent it back after a week.As far as N8 goes I reckon that this will be the best convergence device bar none on release,this will be the swiss army knife of mobile devices!other phones may do certain things better(screen quality,browser,app store)but for an all in one mobile tech monster this should be it!Kinda has to be it or many nokia fans will reconsider if this turns out to be N97 mark 2(admittedly I have never used this phone,never even had a touch screen device!).I have had a N96 for last 18 months and N95 before that,loved them both despite flaws(mostly ram)N95 is the original all in one bad boy!
Last thing,bit dissapointed with nokia for length of time to release N8,when all is said and done there is nothing on the phone that isnít already out on other devices,there is no groundbreaking new technology,surely multi touch gestures and coverflow dont take 8 months to get right!!

Also, don't forget the GPU acceleration that does alot here.
Andy Satria Gunawan, 28 Aug 2010Why doesn't it have lens cover?They had to choose, the team designer had to decide, with lens cover or without. So they voted.
And the winner goes to... No mechanical lens cover!
I just wish it had a few more things for me to call it the best phone in the world (in every aspect)
- CPU,800 MHz would have been better. Or even cortex A8 would have also been a wiser choice over ARM 11
- Screen, should have been Super AMOLED or iPhone's Retina display
- Web browsing experience should be real life PC like, like the one in n900 or iPhone. (if its not already)
- and MAYBE more RAM
Rest all is perfect (12 MP, xenon, gorilla glass, 16GB internal momory, usb on go, HDMI tv out, lifetime GPS) and m very happy with it ^_^
mj, 28 Aug 2010that's good if i can install S60V5 apps in N8 because i have lots of apps in my 5800Yeah, coming from 5800, you will feel like you have the worlds best phone if you get an N8. :)
That is like going to a Honda civic straight from Tata Nano.

Processor speed is not everything. An efficient operating system is.
if people h8 nokia and symbian so much? why is there so much interest on this phone and nokia symbian phone like 5800?
