Your Nokia N8 questions answered… Final part!
Here’s the third and final load of answers to your questions from the day of the Nokia N8 launch. We hope these posts have helped make everything a bit clearer for you on all things Nokia N8!
R3van DarkStar: Are there any improvements in the web browser? Any new functions?
Nokia: There is easy zooming with gestures, integrated web search, and Flash 10 compatibility on web videos.
Mobiwan: Can you replace/remove the battery of the N8?
Nokia: We do not recommend you trying to replace the battery. It can easily be replaced at a Nokia service center.
Joarka: Is the battery Li-po or Li-ion
Brentrobinson: Will there be a conversation type flow within text/email?
Nokia: There is threaded text message functionality.
Yasser: How many Apps does OVi Store have for Symbian ^3?
Nokia: We are not disclosing any numbers but we wanted to provide developers with an opportunity to start innovating in this field as early as possible.
We have also started Ovi App Wizard, a free on-line publishing tool to help anyone including publishers, bloggers and consumers rapidly mobilize their content or brand. Using Ovi App Wizard, publishers can easily create content, and distribute to millions through Ovi Store. No programming skills are required.
Apurv: Does the N8 come with Nokia Comes With Music?
Nokia: This offering will be available in selected markets.
Jade Bryan: Is there a list of specific countries that can get a SU-36 on the package??
Nokia: It is targeted for selected Chinese speaking markets.
byePhone: Any plans to release an Android N8?
Nokia: We have three core software platforms – MeeGo, Symbian and Series 40. These three platforms give us the scope and breadth we need to address the majority of our key market segments.
Rene: Is there multiple calendar support?
Rajasekaran: When will this phone available in India?
Nokia: We have not announced this just yet, but you’ll know soon.
Atul: What features does the N8 have that other mobiles do not?
The Nokia N8 is our latest smartphone to date that intuitively connects to the people, places and services that matter most and we believe it is a great device for people who want to create amazing content. No programming skills are required to use it.
Atul: Can non-Nseries be updated to S^3?
Nokia: We are not supporting a commercial upgrade path for older Nokia Symbian-based devices at this time. However, given that S^3 is built from the input of a vibrant, open-source community, it’s quite possible that enthusiasts may choose to create their own, innovative ways to do this.
So that’s it… Hopefully we’ve now answered all of your burning questions about the Nokia N8. Now it’s time to sit tight until the device hits the shelves!
The Prodigal Fool: Can you tell us how the virtual keyboard works in Symbian 3? Does it look like the one we’re used to from Symbian 1?
Nokia: The virtual keyboard layout has changed for some parts and we have predictive/corrective text input there as well. The capacitive keyboard is also a step forward in usability. We’ve received encouraging results in user tests.
Thenokiablog: Can we change photo and video capture size? For example change video to smaller 640×480 resolution but faster 30 fps?
Nokia: Yes, the user can change the image & video quality. There are three of those:
QCIF 15fps for Multimedia message use.
For example 640×480 @ 30fps is available.
Envutec: For how many years do you think the battery can last?
Nokia: It is hard to say exactly. How long battery lasts depends on many variables, for example, how often you charge the battery and if you’re using it in a hot environment.
You can prolong the battery life by using the device until the battery is empty and then recharging that to full.
Other ways for you to save energy and battery life are:
- Using the conveniently located ‘lock’ key as often as possible; this shuts down the device display immediately saving energy.
- Activating the power saving profile; this optimizes the functionality and energy consumption for prolonged battery life.
- Adjust the backlighting brightness to change the update interval for e-mail and the browser
- Switch off applications when they’re not needed,
- Switch off W-LAN and Bluetooth when not being used.
guys dont worry cause the lens cover has the availability of new highly scratch resistant materials to protect the lens.

to someone who used nokia N8 prototype can u test nokia photo browser in this phone and post on youtube?
I just noticed satio and 12mp pixon were not popular here in philippines, it might be their initial release price tags were $700/Php 35k (satio) and $650/Php 32k (12mp pixon) and even now both are stil bouying at $580/Php28k. Plastic cased were paint crust off eventually, not a good lloking phone after 6 months. But N8 @ $500/Php24k, this will be surely a hit just like XM5800, i just can' wait to have one even though I owned galaxy spica (bang for the bucks). hehe
Wow, judging by the number of comments here this smartphone really stirred up quite an interest. And N8 is a first in a series...
Engineer Man, 22 May 2010Hi. I'm still using the Nokia 5800XM. When it was first released, there were naturally lots of... moreHi Nokia with N8 CPU high specs and improvement on Camera resolution compared to N97 will be efficient and user friendly than the later. I upgraded from N96 to N97 and was not impressed in particular to the phone internal memory not the extended memory that fooled us being low but now N8 with 256 and 512 MB RAM and ROM it would be a marked imrovement. The 12 MP Camera will equal a Digital Camera.I am anxiously waiting the release and launching of N8 in Tanzania. Please include as many free applications as possible as those of us outside credit and visa card payments find it hard to renew the licences of trial applications coiming with the new phone releases.
