Another cool nokia phone would be N900. Hope the Meego project would be a great success. I have always been a Nokia fan, but when it does something always my interest i would avoid it as well. I am a fanboy of my own interest and wallet.
I have always buy Nokia phone due to its high resell value. For example i bought a Nokia Navigator 6110 with plan for SG$98 in 2008, in 2010 i can still sell it for SG$100 since i am renew my 24th month contract for a $68 Nokia 5800.
Based on this logic, N8 has no appeal to me. Nokia 5800 is a good phone. Cheap! and does everything i need. Rock solid after 5 firmware upgrade.
The HDMI out on this phone is gonna rock.
Considering that you can also pair this with a Bluetooth keyboard+mouse, thus turning it into a mini computer
Oh yeah. Nokia will again repeat the success story of nokia 5800 when it just blewed away the iphone as 5800 was "iphone killer". Now apple launched iphone 4,so nokia launch n8 even far better dan iphone 4 or even they launch any iphone 5.
The Nokia Service Center swapping of battery is within warranty period. After a year or two, will Nokia Service Center still be swap the battery for a nominal fee plus battery cost.
The issue here is control. Who has the control, the consumer or the manufacturer. With swappable battery a user could still buy OEM battery and swap at a fraction of the cost of what nokia is charging us.
Go ahead and buy your iphone and N8, its your money!

You can replace battery in Nokia service center for a nominal fee when ever you want. But you have to pay standard price for the battery..
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010I think I don't need this telephone its waste our moneyWhat kind of phone u need then?
Yea, you are rite.. maybe this phone is not for u anyway.
Its for someone like me who knows how to appreciate all the great features in this phone.
Unswappable battery good for manufacturer bad for consumer. Unswappable battery is apple way of curbing the used phone market. Therefore limiting the RESALE value of the phone. I would never buy any phone with fix a battery.

Nokia have got to start some deal with a computer software supplier to help them get themselves back running again,Apple,Samsung an Htc have had some advantage over Nokia,knowing to produce software for there laptops an can easily produce it to work on its mobiles,but nokia had help with the N900 but then dropped it,so want some help to produce better an more efficient software than Symbian if the new ^3 an Symbian ^4 does not get rid of the software bugs
ooohhh, the N8 is now snappy except the autorotate in pics but screen response is comparable to top notch touch phones, i love it.......
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010I think I don't need this telephone its waste our moneyyou're right a $500 for this phone is a lot of waste of money. hey man' how much can you spend for an all around goody2x phone $10 or buy one take for $5 dollar phone. please please can you link the site too...
Or maybe ur willing to spend $1k usd for an iphone a worth of every cents and still counting coz ur only limited to calls and SMSs if you don't have a $5 to spare in every oter things u want to do..
i realy like d features very well its very complete overall from camera & thru software, very nice ders an fm transmiter, but 4 me i would b excelently impressd if it would have stereo speakers, d screen looks slugish & i dont lyk it & poor design & d screen borders gona kind a wide for me its waste of space in front, from its pics i didnt see a stylus..
Nokia N8 is an awesome fone,, I'll get one,, cuz its al in one,, a cameraphone, internetphone, gaming, music, n u name it!! haha!! da onli weakness is dat Nokia N8 should have faster processor,, like around 1GHZ, da new gyroscope in Apple Iphone 4 n maybe a keyboard version of it to offer customers more choice,, cuz keyboard does sometime, come in handy!! haha!! n Symbian 3 is way better!! more flexible den my Nokia N97,, n more uniform,, example, da scrolling mechanism,, all da same,, zooming,, all da same, haha,, no more diz n dat in n97!! haha! so I'll buy diz great ALL-in-One fone!! =D
