I had purchase the nokia n8 mobile for 3 months back. A new update had came SYMBIAN ANNA. I heard that the update of the symbian anna is not much better compared to symbian 3. It creates more problems after updating.. can any one suggest me to update my mobile to anna or not.

Directly copying Android OS is a lazy and cheap way of trying to please Symbian users.
I personally find the Belle GUI to be boring and uninspiring.
I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S as well as an N8 and literally hate the TouchWiz user interface, so you can imagine my disgust when I saw that Symbian will end up looking the same as the Galaxy S. I also detest that stupid HTC'esque Fisher Price home screen clock. It's a real shame what Nokia have done to Symbian. They have effectively destroyed an OS that has been around in one form or another since the '90s, when it should have evolved into the best phone OS on the planet.
All the best.

The N9 is a perfect example of Nokia's lack of business acumen.
They give the world a device that people actually want, then only supply it to a limited number of countries and announce that it will be the only MeeGo device they are producing.
Meego is a perfect contender for the likes of Android and iOS but instead, Nokia have decided to adopt crappy M$ Windows Phone OS.
Just another Nokia fail.

Symbian Belle is now based on Qt framework which is million times better, faster and more beautiful than the AVKON-based Symbian Anna and all older versions of Symbian S60. Belle is the best thing that ever happens to the Symbian platform. It really lives up to its name, Belle of the Beauty and the Beast.

It means that the N8 is getting old and boring. Nothing anyone can do about that now. It tried it's best but failed. Nokia, as a brand are failing also.
It's now time to move on elsewhere because Nokia just don't have a clue anymore in the smart phone business.
Nokia N8 battery backup is 64 hours (2d 16hrs) with moderate-heavy usage.... My N8 is 11 months old

There is absolutely no difference between N8's made in China and those made in Finland. All are built to the exact same standard using the same components and materials.
The battery life is dependent on a number of factors such as usage and what it is used for. It's also worth calibrating the battery every couple of months or so.
I typically get around two to three days battery life from a single charge, but I don't use the thing very often these days as I've grown bored with it since the Anna update and the announcement of Belle which looks hideous.
All the best.
is it true that android does not support video calls over 3g network and only can video chat in skype?

Symbian Anna update (1/2) or 1 of 2 is a must or required to install. The Symbian Anna (2/2) or 2 of 2 is also an important update. However, your phone will work if you had installed only Symbian Anna update (1/2). Frankly, I don't know the importance of Symbian Anna (2/2) but I did installed it on my N8.
After I installed the 2 updates, i noticed the increase in browser speed.
