Although the OS leaves me luke warm (still waiting for more videos and more excitement in the home screen), there is one thing I will say about Nokia - they know how to make a phone first and foremost.
I understand Android has only really just enabled Bluetooth File Transfer, and is still bashing its brains out trying to figure out how to do Bluetooth Voice Dialing.
If this phone fulfills its promises then its going to sell millions for nokia.
brynn, 16 May 2010In 12 years of mobiles the best fotographs ive taken are from se k750i/w900i and nokias own 95... moreThank you for U're reply. Regarding digi cam, that will always be what I prefer as main cam, but want a mobile with a good cam always in my hand. Happens so that I've already bought/ but not yet delivered the N8 after reading many good comments regarding its cam and value for mony. But yet again, THX
Shakil, 17 May 2010Which one is better Nokia N900 or N8??It's the same, just different OS!
N8 is phone-computer, and
N900 is computer with phone!
If you like complicated phone with Linux go for N900, and
if you like funny and more simpler phone go for N8 or other!!!
Why should this phone of all phones not have stereo speakers.I'm disappointed but I'll still buy it.

Shahzad, 16 May 2010If now only Nokia allows to install also Maemo/Meego on it, will make of it a killing deviceAlas !!!
Anonymous, 17 May 2010s60v5 is compactible with s60v3. I have N5800 and i know. Also symbian^3 will support s60v5 appsS60v3 apps are compatible with S50v5 N97 and N95? Yes, that must be why I can download things like DivX player for the N95 from DivX labs and it won't work, or the way the original sports tracker, won't work, or countless other apps, won't work, because they're NOT DESIGNED FOR TOUCH SCREEN.
Have you managed to get Google Mobile working on your 5800/N97 so that it doesn't report that the phone is incompatible?
KID, 17 May 2010cant agree with you mate, cause this device is using a new Symbian OS (Symbian^3), specificall... moreI wish I could have your optimism re Symbian^3 being designed for TouchScreen. Everything looks pretty much the same to me but with a face lift. Im sure its had a lot of work under the scenes, but... eh, Im still waiting to see some videos of the messaging interface!
when n8 become 2 our country (malaysia)???
n do u think how about the price,dudes..tq
with the good price and spec list this powerfull the n8 will sell as much as 5800 and be a top seller,,i would put this in for smartphone of the year.
nokia 5800 user, 17 May 2010I had nokia n73 and it still alive! i had used it more than THREE YEARS! my next phone always ... moreI have e70 for many years. It fell many times on asphalt or concrete and never failed. It just works.
come on consumer must stick together so that manufacture produce a better n quality smartphone. each OS have its own pros and cons. Live with ur OS, U hv ur best OS why u want to bash other OS saying it is old,buggy,bla bla bla... no manufacture force to to buy their smartsphone. Ok sometimes thay do make a hype about their OS to lure consumer but its not forcing. Sharing is caring... arguing is not caring. We can hv multi OS living peace and harmony in this world. PEACE.
Anonymous, 17 May 2010I can also mention that ppl use their N900 as servers, running Apache and PHP. And, want the m... moresometimes the free stuff is simpler and works better,,open office org,,gimp etc do the job and as you say its free...These developers are out there to prove that software should be free and free equivalents are just as effective as paid for stuff..I remember gimp coming out and it was very basic but the proof was there that writers were prepared to imitate paid for software and give it away..
Have not tried n900 i think it maybe a bit out of my league but if i can pick up a cheap one second hand id give it a go..
