The Geek This looks like a tuned version of android that Is actually really good, the incredible and EVO aren't bad, they're the best android phones, but android is bad, those 2 are just hardware and software tuned to be usable, this smartphone meego looks like a copy of android that is made better, hope this takes a little steam off android, as in just enough that android isn't every engadget post anymore
The Geek, well, I don't think Nokia will be releasing a high-end CDMA phone, so I don't think that you'll be able to get Nokia's MeeGo device for Sprint. However, MeeGo is probably the most open-source and open-development mobile OS out there (it's hosted by the Linux Foundation - http://www.linuxfoundation.org/lp/page/meego ) so, if there are enough people interested, porting MeeGo for your next device will be a breeze. Don't know, tho, whether you'll be able to get Nokia's UI/UX or you'll have to use MeeGo's stock UI or some third party (given the openness of MeeGo, chances are that somebody will produce possibly even more compelling UI/UX) - Nokia didn't release plans on what they'll open-source and what will they not.
Either way, MeeGo is as close as a mobile hardware can get to a desktop OS without sacrificing the performance, and with strong players like Intel and Nokia behind it, it has good chances to seriously kick the crap out of any other mobile OS and redefine the way we use our mobile devices - Nokia is calling Maemo/MeeGo devices not smartphones but mobile computers - for a good reason!
whats up with the lame pricing NOKIA
you lost here am getting the samsung wave million times better than the nokia n8 at its price point and not to forget the supperamoled screen :)

Can't be compared to this super phone. And the Galaxy is not using the most used OS :-) The N8 has got no competition. That's a fact. It got over 75 K votes and its not even out yet ! ! ! No other phone has been so much anticipated. Only a fool will miss this signs . . .

Let us Pray that we get our price around Rs24,000. Do you think that they will reduce the price after making it official ? . If they do I will be the happiest man.
Nokia should stop announcing fake prices and fooling the audience at the beginning,the same crisis happened for nokia c3
n8-initial announcement(370 EURO),NOW=505 EURO
I think Nokia is far behind interms of Corporate social responsibility and management techniques,and they should improve on it
