Anonymous, 04 May 2010You need screw driver to replace battery
thenokiablog.comyes but you don't realy have to remove the battery anyway because there is nothing to remove it for...all the ports are on the outside, micro-sd also...SIM CARD HAS A SLOR ON THE UPPER LEFT SIDE OF THE PHONE next to the micro-sd slot
so...unless , in time, the battery gets old and tired, and you realy have to replace it...there is no actual reason to open the phone.
Bingo, 04 May 2010Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortuna... morethat is the micro-usb port...
speaker is either tha small, long hole/cut beneath the camera sensor ...OR on the bottom/upper part of the camera...where the "camera part" seems to come out of the phone

by the way, N8 is not S60 anymore isnt it??
Symbianfan, 04 May 2010Probably the biggest fool on earth is one who expects symbian^3 to be a hit and lots of applic... moreThere's also a second fact.. This phone integrated with qt support means applications of s^4 and meego will support this phone..
Bingo, 04 May 2010Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortuna... moreI think maybe that nokia will enable N8 to be upgraded from symbian^3 to Symbian^4, if not, then dont you think it's just ridiculous?? they sell a nice phone like this and kill it just after half a year??
Probably the biggest fool on earth is one who expects symbian^3 to be a hit and lots of applications.
because. Nokia knows that they are not going to support symbian^3 because symbian^4 is on its way and symbian^3 will not exist for more than half a year. Please correct me if I am wrong
Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortunately Nokia speakers are usually very small and have very low sound volume.
Still a nice phone, but android would have been soooo much better than the prehistoric S60.
Although not mentioned and some unconfirmed opinion says it does not have stereo speakers but I think it will have stereo speakers as its quite high on audio specs with Dolby Digital and SRS surround etc. This is entirely my guess though. May be the speakers are hidden somewhere (like 5800) and is not visible in pics. Lets hope for the best.
Kcd, 04 May 2010Wow! Nokia really pulled a rabbit out of the hat this time. But as with any magic trick yo... moreNokia N8 just as any other Nokia phone from now on is capable of running applications written for Qt framework. This means that any applications that will be written for future Meego or Symbain^4 devices will run on N8 as well.
isn't this Symbian^3 gonna be open source just like android? does that mean that there's gonna be a lot of apps pouring down for the nokia phone from this point??

Someone ask Nokia why they left out stereo speakers for this high end phone please.
Wow! Nokia really pulled a rabbit out of the hat this time.
But as with any magic trick you might want to step back and look at the big picture. The Symbian^3 OS on this phone is going to be the shortest lived OS Symbian has made - to be replaced in a matter of months by Symbian^4. In other words releasing this phone with Symbian^3 is a stop gap measure by Nokia to mesmerize their audience. And if Nokia had any business sense they will release the same phone again next year with the new OS - maybe call it N8^4. Now that's going to piss off all the early adopters especially when they realize that no one is interested to write applications for an OS with barely any supported handsets. Still the show has to go on...
