Thanks for your input but let's face it the N8 is lacking in the hardware d... moreDear Ray,
Have you used those phones (Galaxy Ace & HTC Wildfire)? I used them & G Ace is very much laggy & Wildfire doesn't have half the SW a normal (1GHz plus) Android have. So, get one of those, try to install the following SW from the market: Google sky map, Ashphalt6 HD & lemme know if they run as smooth as you claim. Me, on the other hand, from a hand on review, can tell (read assure) you that you won't be loving those Android anymore (as they will lag almost on anything, if you run them on background). And please, I have posted a few posts here, asking you to clarify me. I request you to read and comment on them. I really need you to prove that I'm wrong.
mvassu, 06 Nov 2011hi friends shortly nokia n8 has upgrade to mango os
enjoyDude, do you even know what you're saying? N8 will NEVER run in Mango (Windows Mango) unless you install it by twitching the phone. N8's updates are: Symbian^3 (PR 1.1 & PR 1.2), Anna (PR 2.0) & upcoming Belle (PR 3.0). So don't lie. And one other thing, N8 doesn't have the H/W capabilities to run Mango OS.
greatwish_2006@yahoo, 08 Nov 2011i have N8-00 there is in the call option LINE1 or LINE 2 what is it for
and i need t... moreFirst, check whether your N8 has removeable back cover or not. If it can be removed, then you're using a chinese copy. If not, check whether your N8 has two SIM-card slots inside or just one. If it got two, then you're using a chinese copy. If not, switch on the phone & when it is in the stand-by mode, go to ovi store. If your phone is a chinese copy, it will NOT have an ovi store (there might be an icon look like it, but don't get fooled by it). Click on it, let it connect to the internet & it'll take you to ovi store, asking for your account id & password.
I hope it'll help you solve your question in mind.
Seriously,dude, what's wrong with people? Do they go along with the craze & call something smartphone? I don't think they claim without even knowing what it is!
You're lost? Lemme clear it out for you. In every Eid festival, I send sms to a lot of my friends & family. I type an sms, select multiple (around 200) numbers & hit the send button. Then I let the phone send it one by one while I leave it in my room. I even did it with the S40 phones (all 200 plus contacts together). But this year was different. I typed an sms, thought I'd send it to my friends & relatives, wishing them, but when I reached 11th contact in my SGS2, it DIDN'T LET ME do that. It didn't let me select anymore than 10 contacts at a time. HOW FUNNY!!! So, if I choose to send an sms to 200 people, it will let me do it in 20 times (WOW! What a waste of time). And they say that SGS2 is fastest responsive than any phones in the world at present & will not waste your time on response. Tell me, how much time will it waste on sending just 200 sms? I know for sure, if I'd let my N8 do the same, it would just take my time of selecting the contacts, then it'd do the rest for me.
One other thing, suppose, you're asked by me to go & grab a box from my car. I gave you the car keys to fetch it as the car is locked. Would you again ask me for my permission to unlock my car? Would you, after grabbing the box, leave the car unlocked for me to lock it again later? How dumb is that? Lost again? Let me clarify.
I was sending a file through BT from my SGS2 to my E72. I chose "send via BT" & even after that it asked me whether it'll switch it on or not!!! Then, after sending the file, it left the BT on for me to manually switch it off. I did the same with N8, it just switched on the BT by itself (as I chose "send via BT"), sent the file, then after finishing, switched off the BT itself. Now, I call THAT a smartphone. What kinda DUMBPHONE is SGS2? Come'n, I wasted my money on a dumb phone. Just I like it's computer speed.
Talking about the computer, last night, I connected my N8 with my 44" LED monitor throught HDMI, while my BT mouse was connected to it in BT & my USB keyboard was connected to my N8 through USBOTG. That, my friends, turned it into a PC (only missed the super fast speed of SGS2). Can ANY OF THE PHONES available in the market do that? Can any of the phones connect HDMI, USB & BT at the same time to turn your phone into a PC? I know some can, but they need the "DOCKING" to do that.
Pleasssssssssse, call N8 slow, but NEVER EVER call N8 dumb, ugly, waste of money. I used the "greatest android" (SGS2) & found it dumber than my N8. So leave your b*llsh*t with you & STFU!!!

After waiting so long for anna update gotta say I am disappointed by the bugs and lack of fluidity. Badly needs kinetic scrolling and the update messed up my music albums. The Os feels a little incomplete. Glad for the camera software update and portrait qwerty though. Nokia, please get it right the next time
