Nokia needs to wake up to the game. This is half a step in the right direction; having hopefully a stable OS and the hardware to do pretty much anything. But Nokia, being Nokia, will probably release it with a lot of bugs and take 2 years to fix them. I have had my N97 for 7 months, I think it has gotten worse, the only good thing they added was kinetic scrolling, but the phone should of had this in the first place. Symbian should be pushed into mid-low range phones, and once release, MeeGo should be in mid-high end phones. Hopefully this MeeGo OS turns out as promising as it lets out to be. Having both Intel and Nokia behind a Linux OS could only be a good thing. They just have to entice developers. I'm one person who is gonna wait and see how MeeGo plays out, as Maemo 5 already looks pretty good. WTF is with everyone bashing each other... iphone this, android that, nokia sucks at this, windows mobile is better at... Honestly, who cares? We are all allowed to pick a phone that we think is nice and different from others; we're not a flock a sheep...
y are so many people calling this a stupid hair shave? You guys have no mind or opinion of your own that's y you have to copy others'?

glockrecoil, 01 May 2010DIVX/XVID nokia... you need to include it... you did it with the n900 why not with your first ... moreyou can add in your own DivX program when you get the phone.Install it for Symbian^3 OS.Sometimes just because the phone doesn't come with some functions doesn't mean you can not install it yourself.

Andy Burgin, 01 May 2010Nokia have took some time to catch in the Touch Screen Mobile Market,the 5800 was a super mid ... moreVery well said Andy i am excited about it along with x10 but some x10 things are bit of letdown but dont i cannot judge until things are in my hands..good price as well..
Anonymous, 01 May 2010Samsung galaxy s (i9000) is better than N8 in everything (expect 12mpix camera). Moreover gala... moreAndroid still has numerous quite serious limitations.
Furthermore this one has a brand new symbian operating system specifically developed for touchscreen devices, and is said to be very good.
The FM transmitter is very usefull as well.
Taking under consideration that it will be significantly cheaper than the i9000 (370 as opposed to 600) I think we are facing a winner here.
you all cant do anything except having a war of words.
NOKIA is beyond your legacy. they rules over a Vast kingdom, like no one. none of your words going to help you make it come down. i know, still you keep on pi**ing from your very own dirty mouth. keep on. dont forget to watch Nokia quarterly reports whenever they are out. you all going to use some vegetables in your very own holes. GOD BLESS YOU all N8 CRITICS
nick, 01 May 2010what you mean samsung are really profitable and are growing very quickly
where as Nokia's a... more"where as Nokias are the most unreliable handsets going"
Heres another quote from you to me in a email. "have you still got your reliable N95?"
Deep space bar , 01 May 2010No way it can't be you, your back man it's been a while I've been here all along dude.
100% agree with glockrecoil.. Y Y Y Y didnt nokia include DivX & Xvid applicable software in the N8 ?? This phone would have been the majorities dream phone if those features also included. Please Nokia, include a sofware which plays all the movie formats just like the n900. Please..!!
Yeah symbian sux! Most of all the developers said that they are NOT interested in developing applications for symbian. Symbian is DEAD! Good luck to you nokia f@gboys with an application-less phone with an outdated shtty old ui while everyone has gone to flashy slick modern user interfaces.
