Anonymous, 19 Jun 2010i disagree about ur stated fact of 98%...i think more like 65% does not get into details about... moreI admit I just made that one up. I too come from a Nokia background used Nokia for years till N97 came along. Had so many problems with the phone. The constant memory full and system error messages, crushing all the time, made me seek phones from else where. Unfortunately it seems these error messages are still present in Symbian ^ 3 and N8 and if not addressed will make the N8 feel more like the N97.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2010Your argument is from a technical point of view an average user "about 98% of users"... morei disagree about ur stated fact of 98%...i think more like 65% does not get into details about the functions etc...but the other 35% surely does if ur looking for a fone with this much specs...ur right that iphone does a heck of a marketing campaign,but i personally still prefer nokia...:D
n8 can really play xvid dvix
ANGRY BIRD, 19 Jun 2010If u r comparing N8 with Ish*t, *N8 supports flash 4 which is upgradable to flash 10.1 ,edge ... moreYour argument is from a technical point of view an average user "about 98% of users" does not give a toss about all that technical jargon. They just want a phone that works as advertised that's why Iphone sells more.
i think as long as any phone has Iphone on it any ish*t fan would be willing to pay anything to get it..
in many places where they sell iphones there is one big problem that isnt the case with the N8. the apps. around here when u buy the iphone, and u want to install apps u have to buy them. and if not there arent any apps in the phone at all. and with the N8 the apps are already installed. At least this is what i heard...

nokia N8 sounds good for a phone name that iphone LOL.N8 sounds good for a phone!!! lol Now that sounds really desperate.
Look folks I don't use the Iphone am no iphone fanboy neither am I Nokia fanboy but if I was to choose between the two I'd definately choose the iphone. You will be amazed how many people out there still use old TVs without HDMI connection so to many it's is pretty much irrelevant.
The freedom to customise well, I wouldn't buy the Iphone if I wanted a customisable phone we do have a choice you know!. When I used the N97 all the apps I found interesting were only available for the iphone and a few on the Android. Gravity "twitter client" was the only app i downloaded from OVI. Iphone 4 will come with google maps, free navigation is avilable there too. I now use the HTC desire and love it to bits but again I say where hardware is concerned the only thing the N8 is better at is the Camera and that's the question I was addressing in my reply.
ANGRY BIRD, 19 Jun 2010If u r comparing N8 with Ish*t, *N8 supports flash 4 which is upgradable to flash 10.1 ,edge ... moreDouble the features for almost half the price. Not to mention all the countless useful apps that is already avalable for the symbian platform... I'll take the n8 anyday over the iphone...

So what about AMOLED display, bt 3.0, hdmi out, world wide 3g support, true multitasking, free lifetime navigation solution, usb otg, micro sd support upto 32gb, video call over 3g and wifi networks, fully customisable home screens and themes support and most importantly, the freedom of not being chained to any propriatary software a.k.a itunes.
