Anonymous, 12 Oct 2011n8 or n9 is good???
The N8 and N9 are two very different phones running different operating systems.
The N8 runs Symbian ^3 and the N9 runs MeeGo.
So, it's up to the end user what they consider to be the best out of the two. I personally do not like the N8 anymore since Nokia ruined it with the Anna update and would swap my N8 for the N9 in an instant. But there are many here who will disagree with me on that.

Anonymous, 12 Oct 2011the n8 can perform better if it possess a 1.4 ghz processor Probably wouldn't make much difference if it did have a 1.4GHz CPU. You see, it still only has 256 MB of RAM which is more important than processing speed on the N8. Symbian is optimised to run on a sub 1 GHz CPU, and runs smooth enough as it is.
Furthermore, the OS would need to be re-coded to account for the extra MHz's not to mention, it would need a bigger battery to power it and, by extension a new motherboard.
So what we are talking about here is a new phone altogether, because it's impossible to upgrade the hardware on a mobile phone.
If you are after a 1.4 GHz mobile phone you should consider the Samsung Galaxy W.

You know that's strange because a few months back i tried it them on my nokia music ... more@2best
I see no reason why they wouldn't work with the N8 considering other third party headphones of similar specifications do work.
Also, because they are plug-in type headphones, as opposed to Bluetooth ones, the OS isn't a defining factor for compatibility. Furthermore, the 5800XM ran on S60 v5 (Symbian ^1) but the N8 runs on Symbian ^3 (Anna) so the two OS's are quite different.
Best thing for you to do is to test them out in the store when you do get your N8.
If they don't work, then I will happily hold my hands up and admit I'm wrong ;-).
All the best.
What are the software codes for Belle & Anna updates? Has Belle been officially certified by Nokia?
You know that's strange because a few months back i tried it them on my nokia music express 5800 and they never got to work so i thaught that since N8 and my 5800 they are both sysbian OS that the beats headphones wasnt gonna work either. So Ray you are telling me that a can use any beats headphone model on my future N8 ?
Superb N8 friends i got it updated to anna and i got surprised that i can edit the documents like excel, word and powerpoint. Thanx to N8

I love my N8, but today it betrayed me.
I was chilling outside and Bugatti Veyron parked in front of us.
Pulled out my N8 to take a picture but said "Memory full"
Nothing was open and I know how to use symbian, good experience everything organised.
but or no reason it happened.
