hello, 18 Aug 2011Like all Symbian phones, Nokia N8 also does some stupid things... One of many happened today.... moreIts not a stupid thing. First of all you dont know anything about nokia and symbian. It asked you to connect to wifi just to cut the high amount of data transfer cost. And secondly maps that you have in your phone for old version of ovi maps aren't compatible with new version. And the phone itself warns you before deleting anything...Simple as that...!
Like all Symbian phones, Nokia N8 also does some stupid things...
One of many happened today...
I opened Maps to see if there was any updates...
There was an update and i clicked Download, but gave me this stupid message that I have to define wifi access and connect to it. I thought, OK, I will switch WiFi on, (even though I use high speed 3G). But all of the sudden I see that all my maps that I had for offline use were disappeared. The download was not even started! it just gave me a message... For no reason it deletes my Maps that are used in offline mode.
I hope Symbian Anna fixes all these errors and bugs, because this phone is suffering very much! In almost every aspect this phone is affected by bugs and errors! Everything like (crashing internet, music player corrupted folders, freezing, lagging, creating and deleting some stuff by itself, I mean there's so many and I just hope they will fix these)
Of course, you won't notice these if you use this phone for only camera and simple usage, but if you demand professional results N8 fails very badly!!!!!
I love N8 very much, but truth has to be said...

I wouldn't get too excited about Belle. Nokia aren't treating it as official so it may never get released officially.

I've checked Navifirm again and this time there are several Product codes added to the list including operator branded ones in various countries ( mine is included in the list as well ).
It would seem that Nokia has changed the way they give out updates by allowing everyone to update at the same time rather than rolling out the update gradually region by region.
Even though my Product Code is on the list I'm still not able to update yet. My best guess is that Nokia have disabled the update feature until all PCodes are on the list, but that is just a guess on my part.
Whatever the case, usually once the PCode is on the servers you can update the phone within a day or two.
I'm in sri lanka, can I update my N8? I checked from Navifirm, NSU & OVI Suite, but I couldn't
Finnaly Anna will be available for OTA updates.
But seems many are more interested on Belle Leaked version :)
Guess what..I updated to Belle and found official Anna is available...btw Belle is good..was using leaked anna before.

Rollindice, 17 Aug 2011As Ray said through Navifirm N8 is being rolled out, soon time it will come OTA and also Ovi
When I checked Navifirm this morning no product codes were listed. Yet, the screen shot in the link you provided clearly shows a handful of Indian product codes already getting the update. I also noticed that they are using a different version of Navifirm to mine, so I downloaded that same version (1.3) and checked again. I'm still not getting the same results as they are. Very strange.
Anyway, it won't be long now as Nokia have also starting selling new N8's with Anna pre-loaded.

Nokia is falling and n8 is old is that a reason for which i should not buy this and how are the games and apps can it be compared to android
According to NaviFirm Symbian Anna has appeared on the list of available firmwares for the N8. However, it isn't available for any product code yet which means Nokia have released Anna to the networks etc for approval.
In the space of a week or two we should start to see Anna being made available for download on unbranded handsets first along with certain country variants, then the rest should follow.
I reckon most, if not all N8's will have Anna in four to six weeks.
