Hi to everyone...
I have my N8 since it was first launched in the Philippines last October 23, 2010. (23,699 pesos)
I have questions for all of you...
Nokia N8 runs on Symbian^3 at 772MHZ underclocked to 680mhz ARM11 processor with 256MB of RAM. plus a dedicated Broadcom GPU!
iPhone 3GS has on atmost IOS 4.3 at underclocked speed of ARM Cortex 600mhz with 256MB or RAM plus PowerSGX GPU (Does 3GS have a dedicated GPU? how about on the iphone 4? does it have a dedicated GPU LIKE THE N8?)
If you can see 3GS and N8 has ALMOST same processor speed and amount of RAM, with N8 has a little more edge.
Symbian is a lighter OS compared to IOS. But if you use side by side 3GS and N8, it seems 3GS executes apps, games smoother and faster? Why??
Set aside that IOS freezes app (no true multitasking) Consider the scenario with both zero running apps fresh from boot. I tested it myself. But i cannot understand why 3GS runs smmothly in IOS while N8 a bit lags on Symbian (especially when a folder contains bit more apps, apps execution, etc)
had my n8 for over six months now bought last nov. 11,2010 haven't encountered any problems with it no purple screen defect downloaded dozens of apps from ovi. Still enjoying using it till now. Great phone.

since it workable to cover the screen defect
its nokia responsibility
Just updated to Pr1.2, didn't have any problems in the first place but am liking the improvements, screen seems sharper, browser a little snapper, the landscape dialer make it far easier for me to make call in the car when the phones in it's GPS cradle and I like the new QT 3D features. Updates that are actually useful, now there's an idea android fans
this is the best mobile .
But why nokia can't upgdrade there processor and ram.they are the main selling points today.
I have been using this phone for around 6 months now. I am having problems with Maps, whenever I open the application after 5 secs the phone resets and reboots.
Is anybody else facing this same problem? any solution for the same??

First of all you need to download Extsis from http://www.4shared.com/file/_XDT4LDB/ExtSis.html.
Then download your certificate and key file.
Run the Extsis.exe and drag and drop the SIS file you want to sign into the Extsis main window. Now click the blue " SIGN " icon, and click the key pairs tab at the top.
On the right hand side you will see Add/Edit key pair. Use that to browse to where you downloaded your certificate and key and give it a profile name. Click Add profile when done. Now click the package tab and on the right hand side select your profile from the signing profiles. Then click add signature. Once it's signed close that window then click File menu and " Save as ". Now you have a signed app which can be installed to your N8.
You will get a warning message on your phone saying something like " Application is for development purposes only " but just press ok and the file will install fine.
All the best.
