Replacing it might not be as troublesome as a completely sealed off battery like in an Iphone. Not suggesting anyone to replace it themselves but I do believe the process should not be as time consuming as an Iphone. and will get done in an single visit.
My concern is not that it will be hard to replace but would it hold enough charge. I have 3 battery units for my N95 (its one and only flaw) and sometimes will find myself using up all three on a single day trip.
If all that is promise of the N8 battery lasting long enough, then I'll be happy.
Anyone know whats the resolution on the normal RCA cable output? Although this is a good enough reason to get an HD TV, my current TV only accepts RCA cable inputs. The output from my N95 is not that great with web pages as its just a blow up of the standard 240x320 phone resolution.
Just checked out a Nokia store in Malaysia. Although the release in some places are estimated to be as early as end of August, in Malaysia (possibly in South East Asia -Singapore) would be around October this year.
But then, this is just from one staff there, not sure how true this is. Infact, one week ago, they didn't even know what was N8.
It will be available in 6 months. I was thinking about buying it, then I discovered *battery is not replaceable*. This puts buying it out of question! Considering that you start feeling battery degradation within 1 or 2 years, I consider it a major flaw in design and won't spend pretty bucks on it.
will, 15 Jun 2010i really wanna get this fone. but i hope no one else that i know gets it before me...i am going to sleep at the Store's doors @ releasing night :D hahah to be the first ever
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2010nokia n8 will be 370 EUR?how is possible and why is so chep?Why cheap? something called MASS PRODUCTION, Totaly cost divided by Number of Units = ?? as more units as lower the cost .. its a fact
codge , 15 Jun 2010i have seen one for sale on ebay, is this phone out? no its not out the units over ebay fake chinese copy dont buy .
maybe nokia will come out with N8 8GB. so it will be cheaper with card slots available. phone memory is not a problem....
Anis, 14 Jun 2010it is not avialable anywhere!This product will hit indian markets in Sep 2010. Got to wait until then!!!
The shape of the phone is not nice. i belive cahnging the shape of the phone will lead to potential market.
price of nokia N-8 is 22000/- approx in India but it will come to india after July.
Nokia have announced that N8 shall come to India by September and price will br just 21019 INR (around 452 USD), much lower than expected!
