They just have to screw the pins and replace battery. You can also replace battery yourself but for security of your phone Nokia recommend every to replace it from Nokia service center.
I hate to be kept waiting.. i really hate waiting anything or anyone :S release it now and make Firmware update as soon as its done!
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.......
