Anyone have any idea what will be the price range for a gsm/prepaid version. I hate those unlimited data plan! If anyone have any price info in this unit, please let us know. Rumors suggest that this will be way cheaper than the apple IPHONE. And there is up and comming competition with the highly anticipated Windows Phone 7 Rumored to be launch in time for the holidays. But consider this. With the restrictions on IPhone and Windows Phone OS device, I consider this and/or android based device for practical reasons:
1. File transfer could not been easier unlike IPhone which has no bluetooth file transfer.
2. Home screen and other customization.
3. Multitasking-you can listen to your favorite music while surfing the internet, while downloading apps.
4. You can change battery. Instead of those Energizer or similar battery pack which is so bulky, You could open the back pop in a new battery and presto, you have juice to run your device. Try talking to someone or using the phone with that kind of device dangling around. What's worse, because the device is so heavy, it could ruin the charging port which could cost you repairs.
5. Last but not the least, expensive phone tend to be lost and gone forever. Let's face it, in my home country pawn shops replace watches with phone as their preferred collateral. And all phones are just the same. They all does the same. It's not the hardware anymore but the design of the software. I'll be surprise if some genius put a thermal imaging in my phone.
((Lessons Learned: Phones come and gone because phone companies need to profit, they launch more and more phones. Just like in the auto industry the only thing is their design. Basic engine in cars ;like processing power of the phone tends to be just the same. I would like to see specialized phone like radar based measurement tools, laser levels. They even forgot to basic tool which is thermometer or thermal imaging. Most of us don't even use the video cam in our phone. Could you imagine if you have a thermal imaging in your phone, you could see in the dark, tell if you or your companion have fever tell if you're food if cooked. Or probably a 200 lumens flashlight to blind a potential criminal. Talk about using your phone for self defense. Old phone could be used for self-defense literally because of their

YJ, 09 Jul 2010I dont like the virtual full QWERTY in Nokia N8 (black colour and no had secondary character ... moreVirtual keypad's colour, appearance can be changed with different themes. In fact all third party themes have different appearance than default and as its a Symbiam phone, there are lot of third party themes available freely.

I dont like the virtual full QWERTY in Nokia N8 (black colour and no had secondary character in a button, eg: Q1, W2, E3.. if press button and keep a short time, like HTC HD2). I can get a new QWERTY application in Ovi Store and make a new virtual keyboard? PLEASE SOLVE MY QUESTION!
you wish. iphone is a nokia wannabe. well all about iphones are just FOOLINGS.
n8 cpu and gpu combined is faster than omnia hd so what do you say?!

apple iphone 4 bursts into flame, burns hands.
Seriously, what's next?
Apple iphone 4 is really a failure. Now drawing back from iphone and now for Nokia n8.
nokia n8 is a beautiful phone, that i wanted to buy but i changed my mind cause it lacks the looks,os,1ghz processor that i really want in my phone. besides it has great cam and specs.
my option is the MOTOROLA DROID X which is a great phone.

[deleted post]I think you are just too outdated to say that other manufacturer are trying to beat Apple Iphone.
N8 and Iphone 4 are totally at different league.
N8 is going to beat Iphone 4 to the ground.
So stop comparing N8 with Iphone 4.
