AnonD-9993, 25 Aug 2011is this phone upgradable to belle os?Hi SamHUNK,
Yes, N8 is upgradable to Belle. There are some users who have already done the upgrade with the leaked version of belle from internet.
As per Nokia, Belle would be available for Symbian 3 models in Q4.

That's fair enough. What I would do though is visit My local NCP just to enquire whether they had any good working replacement screens and have them contact me when good screens become available. In the meantime you can get an app called light control which disables the automatic brightness and set it to a high level, and that will hide the purple tint. You can get it from http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=38677.0
All the best.

Just updated my N8 with Symbian Anna, it's good. Although my phone just got a bit slower AND I miss my quick office. :( How do I install another document editor on my phone?
I'll try and explain as best as I can. The purple tint only manifests itself when the screen is at or close to minimum brightness. So grays and blacks appear as shades of purple. This is caused by incorrect coding in the drivers that control the phones display. Now, these drivers are stored within a chip attached to the display and cannot be overwritten with a software update. This is why the whole screen needs to be replaced to solve the issue.
What Nokia have done with the Anna update is to increase the phones default brightness level in the clock screensaver, thereby giving the impression that the purple tint has been fixed. They may have also increased the default brightness level in other areas as well to lessen the effect of the purple tint to make it less noticeable.
pls some one help me. My N8 is automitacly Restart & camera also not working. Whn i open camera its showing ERROR. I spent too much money for Repair But still same problem.pls tell me how can i update...?Thanks

Apologies for the delay. Here is the link for the official discussion for the purple tint.
It's quite a long thread so you may not want to read it all. A lot of it is just a repeat of what others have already said, but the bit you do want is there from Michaels who is a moderator and Nokia employee.
All the best.
Can anyone tell me if the Anna update is available in South africa. And what are the main differences/advantages between Symbian 3 & Anna?
