And of course the N8 is lightning fast and best in class is it?
It has never come top in any mobile phone review. Not once. All because Nokia had no clue of how to produce a genuine contender in the smart phone business, and they still don't.
They are trying to catch up with the pathetic 701 which is basically a C7 with a 1 GHz CPU.
They can't even get the update procedure right either. There are still countries waiting for Anna even though Nokia promised that all N8's would receive the update by the end of August, and that promise was made way back in April.
I'm sorry, but your loyalty to a company that has no loyalty to it's customers is truly sad and shocking. Every device they release from now on is an insult. They seem to be wanting to flood the market with as many cheap and nasty phones as possible just to be able to say "we are the largest phone manufacturer on the planet".

It's clear to me that you are nursing a semi for Belle so no matter what I say won't change your mind. That's fine and I hope you enjoy your Android clone for years to come. I'll be giving my N8 to my eight year old daughter to play with. I'm done with it now, and done with Nokia. They'll be out of business soon enough, so everyone will eventually be forced to buy from other manufacturers anyway.
All the best.

Guys try the app called "lyric" its awesome .
Any music lover out there should try this.
it's basically a lyric showing app with great gui and good usability.
Must have app.
Well,lot of people say that nokia sucks becoz it lack apps,,boring OS..i have an answer for them ....
i m a mobile apps/hardware expert.. (not a big fan of nokia) but i must say that if u r a teenager /businessman wateva u r ... u need few apps in ur cellphone (facebook,skype,messengers,,ebuddy,,angry birds etc) not million billions of apps in cellphone....and nokia have all these apps in ovi store....now coming to OS ..noki have done wonderfully well with its OS ..shifting to Anna ,,belle made a huge change in their cellphone's efficiency + battery life of nokia phones are more than awesome.....SO i think nokia i not lagging in this smartphone competition...it has its own adv and disadv....
On the otherhand Android phones have a huge problem of lagging and hanging up even phone with 1.2 ghz processor....while nokia n8 with 600mhz is silky smooth...:)

Well, we have 50.000 apps too, thousands of them free and a lot of them are very good, so not sure if that's an argument anymore. On the other part, Android does not yet have a serious camera phone, with xenon, big sensor, zoom in video without loss of quality, etc ... so no, thanks, I'll stick to Symbian. And if you are worried about updates, 10 months since launching of N8 we got 3 firmware updates (PR 1.1, PR 1.2 and Anna) and already announced the forth one (Belle) ... and at least Anna and Belle are big updates. Symbian Belle is a match to any Android out there. Androids are not a match (hardware-wise) to an N8 (camera, HDMI, FM Transmitter, five band 3G, metal construction, USB OTG, clock always on screen without much battery consumption, etc). They beat Symbian at screen resolution ...

I know that not all n8 have a purple tint but most of them have and mind you by most i mean alot but every handset has its ups n downs so i wont relegate d reputation of nokia's finest i.e the n8.but mahn you no it feels pathetic have a phone which has been more at the service centres than in ur hands!
Try going into SW Update. Your phone will refresh the list of available updates. Let the refreshing finish. It will take a while. But be sure you are on a 3G network area. This will not work on non-3G area.
Hope this helps...
hey every one. the new anna version is 024.001.it is not belle.i am using it this time...user confuse that may be its a belle version, but its a new anna version. which is more powerful and light then old 022.14 anna version.so dont worry and dont confuse about the new anna 024.001.

I ju... moreno it wasn't real golf, got the new update Symbian anna 24.001.. its not belle. not seen many changes but the it must have updated the core structures of the os.. more fast and improved :D, belle is good if they have copied or not the os is good. the structure of symbian anna is different from, changing the os look has noting to do with copying, its all about the user experience which counts.. n belle will surly be as good as any other Os now!
new n8 user, 02 Sep 2011hi Ray,
i just want to know, how do i calibrate the battery? by the way, i totally respect y... moreTo calibrate the battery you need to let the battery drain completely and charge it with the phone switched off. Only do this once every couple of months though as Li-ion batteries have a nasty habit of dying if they run out of charge completely.
There is an inbuilt safety feature to prevent this from happening so it's safe to do now and again.
hi evry one,i tell you ef your nokia n8 the buttery is not long life only 3days use alredy battery low,before i also vey sad becase my nokia N8 i use 3days only stumby time i fell sorry oh why i buy this device,but later i dont lock the screen thin i fogot lock i wonder why the battry 100%even 4day i dont use,so later i test i charge in i dont use the stumby time is 2weeks or 336hours,so you also do that if you want the battery of your nokia n8 is long time.thanks.
