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

THINGS TO BOAST in N8!
-12mp with xenon flash
-hd video recording
-dolby digital sound
-tv out 720p
-flash lite v.4.0

To all those who are saying that N8 will be slow.
ARM 11 680 mhz (is enough) + 3D Graphics HW accelerator + a powerful Broadcom GPU ( beated I9000 Galaxy S ARM a8 1GHZ) = a powerful and flawless N8 overall mobile experience!
The battery can be removed by screw drivers.
***** Pls chech this Video,N8 is connected with 1.5TB(Terabyte) external Hard Disk..
You can connect to WEB Tv via 3G connection. Remember it is fully 3g! it has 10.2 mbps HSDPA and 2.0 mbps HSUPA
The battery can be removed and replaced (there is an instructional video on the net), but it is not as easy as pop cover and swap on the go as it used to be in Nokia phones. With proliferation of various portable recharge devices this is a less of issue for heavy users, than this could be in the past. Meanwhile, the benefit is slimmer and more robust and sturdy device.

Just search on Google regarding changing N8 battery. All it requires is removing 2 screws and then replace the battery. A chinese guy even posted a video of it.
Mj, lets pray Nokia N8 will be release in Philippines week or weeks after its official release. I found the features of the phone amazing and great. I purchased Nokia N900 last month. N900 runs smoothly. I love the net browsing the most. Firefox 1.1 is really helpful to me. N900's multitasking is the best. You can't find anything like that in the market. And here comes the powerful N8. I love the 12 MP camera and the HD video recording. I have seen Samsung Wave's video recording. It's okay. I believe N8 can do better than that. There's nothing wrong about the ARM 11 680 MHZ processor. Remember, it is not alone. It is equipped together with 3D graphics HW accelerator and a powerful Broadcom GPU which shows more triangles beating the Samsung Waves and I9000 Galaxy's ARM A8 1 GHZ processor. So I must say N8 is great and powerful indeed. I decided to retain my N900 when N8 comes here in the Philippines. I was really surprisely shocked by the price. A little cheaper than the starting price of N97 32 GB. :) Nokia, I'll wait for your N8 here! Thanks for making a powerful phone!
Of couse it isn't true. Are you dumb? Where did you get this information that N8's non removable battery will be dead after 500 recharges. Well that isn't true!
@ XLong. Get out of here kidoo. N8 has a fantastic design. It has the single main button compared to Iphone's main button which is like a cent. Certainly, Iphone has no passion for designing thier phones. N8 has the most comfortable camera key for the fabulous 12 MP with xenon flash.
To thos who are worrying about N8's body. Well, haven't yo read the specs? It has an anodized aluminum casing. It is scratch-resistant. Nokia make durable products. For example, the N97s. I liked their body. I'm not sure if its metal but I can feel the solidity.
N8 has the EDGE and GPRS Class 33 which makes it fastest in the world. N8 also has Flash Lite v.4.0 First in the world.
