But i am more confused now.
How did you come out with this formula of 256-135=121??
Afaik 256mb is referring to the RAM.
135mb is referring to the internal storage.
There is another internal mass storage of 16GB.

So,... moreif it hangs press the button it cant happen that after pressing power button it does not restart it is like when windows hangs and u press power button of ur cabinet then can it happen windows dont shut down thats same way with n8 if power button got physically damage and does not work then u have to bring n8 to nokia care center so they can fix the problem and can take out battery by taking two sreew out.

So,... morePressing the power button does work for the N8. A long continuous press on the power button kills the phone.
Previous version of Symbian apps especially Symbian^1 apps should work fine but do wait for confirmation when proper a review comes out.
Just to add, the battery is removable (for replacement when dead) but just not easily user removable.

I'm asking this just out of curiousty that i know N8 doesn't allow removing of battery.
So, suppose if the phone hangs. I know this i guess is a very rare chance. Still if it hangs. Wat can a user do? As power button doesn't work when phone hangs!
And other question is will it support applications that were built for previous symbian OS?
Anyone with solution?
this phone has 512mb ROM in NAND flash memory, can we "put" something in it...?

It sounded like he treated the 135mb internal storage the same as the 256mb RAM...
I am no expert in this area, but i do know that my Symbian devices has never give me any problem with low storage in the c: internal memory since i have large mass internal storage to use.
everytime i install apps and games in N81, it always give me an option where to install to sdcard or phone memory, isn't that a standard function symbian, right?
and it gives me also the option where to store the messaging files either the card or in the phone. well most of my installation and sms were located in the sdcard and it never give problem on that sort....
why did sum1 bring up on low memory for apps and games in N8 for about 138MB, it just don't matter I think as a symbian user we had already the option to install it in the sdcard while that option is just recently/officially introduced in the Froyo in android os.

If Symbian is not a great OS, do you think Samsung will make use of it in their flagship devices?

It is normal for every other mobile devices in the market.
Thus, it is not right to call it an "issue". This is a suggestion.
You can raise this suggestion to any phone company of course.
Engineer Man, 06 Jul 2010For some unknown reason when I upgraded to the OVI Maps Version 3.1/3.2 from Version 3.0 46mb ... moreDid you ever personally raise this issue to an official Nokia representative?
Did you get any answer from them? I believe they are more willing to answer all these questions for you in details. Try Mr. Damian Dinning. He is very responsive in answering client's question.
Well, I think i will found out when i get the N8 on my hand. Cause I didn't encountered any of such problem after so many Symbian devices (with much lesser c: internal memory on board) i used before this.
For some unknown reason when I upgraded to the OVI Maps Version 3.1/3.2 from Version 3.0 46mb phone memory went down to 42mb. Then here & now, location services, Nokia email all used more taking me down to 35mb of free memory now. Even with Web browser temp cache cleared. I'm looking at what else can be moved safely from C:\ without causing problems & taking the memory back upto to a decent 46mb. I'm thinking of getting rid of something. Simple helper files & such... This is the issue I want to raise. All these programs & content should be installed by default to another partition, the phone having more C:MEM or having the install option to choose to send install to MicroSD. But OTA or NSU don't usually by default give you this choice. Instead you watch your already limited lowly amount Phone memory you have left decrease & decrease to nothing. Ok I've had my rant.
Yes the apps I was referring to moving from C: was individual C:MEM OS only program & their contents getting larger & reducing MEM on C: (5800XM) This is content that couldn't be moved to another memory card. Instead they occupied the phone memory. I don't know whether it can be moved without causing problems to the MicroSD card. Programs such as OVI Maps Program & content (maps),the new location services program, here & now, Nokia Email, which new iteration uses more & more C: memory leaving less free memory.
