RONALD, 09 Aug 2010Is N8 upgradeable to Symbian^4 or Meego when released ?No its not.
But all application that run on S^4 will run on S^3 by Default!

All have u seen is the os and firmware which was nt finalized ! Symbian is always slow but I know and I am sure Nokia isnt going to do same mistake again ! 680mhz is enough for symbian and u forgot therez a powerful brodcom gpu ! Symbian is the most matured os and best multitasking ! Just bcz u hate symbian doesnt mean itz a joke !
PC, 09 Aug 2010Why dont these wavers brag about their phones (what they call phones) in their own forms, btw ... moreSymbian is a very buggy OS, "if it is really an OS", and it is definetly not a mature OS because it crashes to often and you have to remove the battery to even be able to restart and "use" the phone, this is a big problem for N8 because it can not remove battery so it will be completely unusable after the first Symbian crash, and because it still is Symbian it will definetly crash. 256 mb ram is not enough and the small memory will make Symbian crash. Xenon flash is to "good" and bright for taking pictures of your friens in the bar, and who really needs 12 MP? 1200 mAh battery is definetly to small, but small batteries have always been one of Nokias biggest problems.
Nokia is beginning to have the same problems as SonyEricsson, they are to slow and their phones are outdated already even before they reach their first customer, X10 is a joke and N8 seems to be an even bigger joke.
From 2007 Nokia is working on this product i was expecting a unique one but this is not a dream come true handset HTC hd3 coming in Nov 2010 is a new gen. phone windows 7 with 4.5 inch captive touch screen 1.5ghz processor 1gb ram 1gb rom 8mp camera with flash 1.3mp front facing camera wow killer features waiting eagerly for HTC hd3
Why dont these wavers brag about their phones (what they call phones) in their own forms, btw i by chance went there and all i saw is ppl complaining about the buggy OS (if it is really an OS), battery life, and their syncronization with stupid kiaes or kites, whatever.. the point is just kick the wavers out of this form.. cheeeeers

Of course, it is a bit geeky since very little add-on software existed when it was launched. Users had to wait and search it on Nokia forums. Its spread in North America was also limited due to the phone having 1700 / 2100 3G when the majority operators use 850/1900. Only T-Mobile subscribes could use it.
apple phones are still more decent than those of nokia. 12mp camera? better get an external flash along with it...lol!

Nokia makes phones for geeks ie user interface is unimportant but capability is important. Android/iphone make phones for general user. They keep user interface in mind. Eg they dont mind having 5 mp camera instead 12 mp as long as users experince is good. For them user experience is important than capability. And since general users are outnumber geeks heavily, nokia lags behind androids & iphones & samsungs. Take example of n900 which was a failure as it was made for geeks. Lets see how n8 fares
The N8 is the best-looking smartphone I've seen (especially in blue or orange). The 12-Megapixel camera (with dual Xenon flash!), totally radioed-up -- including FM transmitter and Flash support really make it the all-in-one device I've been waiting for...for years. No, it's not Android. Which, to me, means you're not supplying your user data to Google (seems a bit Orwellian to me, anyway). Complain about Symbian all you want; but capabilities will always trump font style, icons, menus or any of the cosmetic complaints that I hear about Symbian.
I suggest that nokia include instructional manual written in kindergarten language.
I've heard/read lots of complaints from people who don't know how to manage a smartphone. It sucks.
phones fan, 08 Aug 2010sorry but I don't agree with you ,my samsung wave video light is capable of giving excellent v... moreDude, thats the whitest lie i've heard this month. Do you know what a meter is? Unless you'r gonna tell me your waves flash is powered by an external cell, i put it to you that at 2m, what you get is a horrible video filled with red green blue artifacts(if the flash were a good one) while at 5m, its completely useless. If your waves flash was that good, samsung would have ventured into the street lightening market. Not even dual led can give you a good video at 5m.
RONALD, 08 Aug 2010what's the benifit of edge class 33 where 3g is therekeep in mind that 3g is still not universally available. even though 4g networks are starting to roll out. for some situations this 2G class 33 may be of some help.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2010i want to pre-order this phone but just wanna know if compatible to skype voice and video call... moreskype voice works on symbian phones. if the current version will not be working on S^3 for some reason, i have no doubts it will be updated to work in short order.
native skype software has no video calling for symbian. until recently skype video calls could be placed via fring, but skype recently shutdown fring's access to the network due to some conflict of interests. not sure if this is temporary or not.
i want to pre-order this phone but just wanna know if compatible to skype voice and video calling as well. thanks
That youtube vid demonstrating the browser looks ok. Finally it looks like they got the browser right. Still a bit slow, but maybe because of the flash. At least it looks like you can actually use the browser now though.
leanne, 09 Aug 2010is nokia n8 will be launch in canada? and when?Given that all carriers are supporting 3G, it it will come faster than in the past when only Rogers had compatible network.
Wind will probably be one of the first operators since it is compatible with their 1700 MHz network and will occupy high end offering slot.
Cindy, 08 Aug 2010The 'USB on the go' is a great feature to have, but really, who is going to plug in their 500g... moreYou have a problem with icons. Icons have nothing to do with OS. Symbian OS has nothing to do with it. The same icons can be reused in in any OS, even Meego, or iOS :)
