Many people are complaining about Nokia's choice of using Symbian, MeeGo, amd Maemo. Please read this to understand WHY they made this decision.
¤Flash Support¤ YouTube fans and gamers rejoice – Flash is supported on the Nokia N8. It’s a Flash 10.1 compatible Flash runtime (ActionScript 3) and player, called Flash Lite. A point to note: the device does not support all of Flash 10 features for graphics but all video-related features are supported.
WebTV is another new weapon added to the
Nokia N8 ’s arsenal. The Web TV application
delivers TV programs, news and entertainment
from channels like Paramount, E! Entertainment,
CNN and National Geographic. Locally relevant
Web TV content will also available from the Ovi
The Nokia N8 is crafted from a single piece of
anodised aluminium. The process of anodising
the aluminum increases its corrosion and wear
resistance. With the casings ’ ultra scratch-
resistant powers, you can scratch a set of keys
on the back of the device and with a quick wipe
the mark will magically disappear. The anodised
aluminium doesn ’t just banish scratches, it also
means it’s possible to bring the N8 to the market
in a rainbow of colours.
Symbian ^3 OS seem to be simple with low memory in ROM and low system request. And N8 can update to Symbian ^4? Soft same Android 2.1 to 2.2 or hard like HD2 run Android? Who can confirm it?

The N8 is surely a beast! But one thing which I still can't made up my mind with. Which color should I take? The five color variants are just GORGEOUS! Really in a huge dilemma. Need some help here.

people should be told about the use case instead of spec list, it is the key to marketing your product well
gsmarena should add changes to comments pages
they should add the most rated comment, in order to avoid repeated faq, repeated useful tips
