Don't expect anymore significant updates for the N8. Belle will have been the last one. You might get a couple of minor bug fixes but don't hold your breath.
What annoys me the most is that Nokia haven't bothered to enhance the camera app much and still only has the same basic functions from when it was first released (apart from adding 30fps video recording). My Samsung Galaxy S has just had an update to it's camera that allows still photos to be taken while recording a video. It's also got a lot more scene modes by default plus panorama and special effects built in. You have to install third party software on the N8 if you want these extra features.

Thing is, since I got an Android phone I couldn't be bothered with my N8 anymore. That's why it's used mostly as a bedside clock. If my Android phone had a similar app to Nokia's Sleeping Screen I'd turn off the N8 for good and put it in a draw out of the way.
The best Nokia I have ever used. Can multi-task between applications which saves a lot of time.
pals, Please when are we expecting another official update for this machine

worzel, 22 Apr 2012I get 5 days. Probably because it's only used as a bedside clock these days I guess you may get 7days if no widget with 1 homescreen and set into power saving mode with all minimum setting. Or mayber it will be longer if shut off the phone. Let it ring only when alarm is functioning in shutdown mode....hahhhahahaaaa...
Came on, just utilize it as what it capabale to do so..it has plenty of opportunity of functions. Not only become alarm clock.

guru, 23 Apr 2012Confused between iphone 3 and n8 both great phones in their own light....sick n tired of anero... moreHaving used both I would go with the N8 over the Iphone 3GS, particularly because of its superior camera among other personal preferences.
But just something to consider, I also use an Iphone 4S on a regular basis and I see it as a better all-round experience. If possible you may want to put out a little extra cash and get the Iphone 4S, you will not regret it.
That said, while it may come off as abit contradicting, my N8 is still my primary device because of its durability, camera quality and battery life... guess it all comes down to personal preference
