Wow! This phone is great. I just ran about 35 apps at the same time without a performance breakdown. But this is just some thing that had happened after i installed the official firmware PR1.1. PR1.0 was a disappointment in multitasking and performance. Anyways, hoping to get more features in the future updates via firmware.
HT, 11 Feb 2011I think you are meaninglessly bashing d brand, my friend use for like Nokia for years and noth... moreIf u read my post in full you will realize I'm not bashing the nokia brand. The only handset I mention is the n8. My commets are not opinionated. They are fact from experience. The return rate of the n8 far outweigh any other handset in the last few months. From memory the last handset to have such a harsh return rate was the nokia n96, again great hardware but faulty software. All handsets have faulty units but it's the rate that counts. Does your friend have an n8? If not it doesn't count for anything as it is a redundant statement. I have had a plethora of nokias in the past, without fault, but that doesn't mean nokia is and always will be flawless. Don't take offense to my comments about the n8. At the end of the day it is only a phone. As I said, my comments are facts from years of experience. Ps. No point refering people to a fan based nokia facebook page as it is obviously biased views and would be meaningless.

Stupid American dog with his questionable loyalty, decided to get along with his former boss.
But, I hope it will bring great things.
Nokia is just too big too fail!
Waiting 2 see whether Nokia releases a Meego phone,
Now my next phone is gonna be from Intel with Meego,Intel has just backed Meego with many other big players like BMW.
Nokia shareholders should vote Mr Elop out,yeah it's knives out for Elop.

rdca, 12 Feb 2011Nokia's Windows Phone 7 concept revealed! N8,C7,E7 is upgradable WP7 no thanks i don't like W... moreHi rdca, same with me up to now I donot like windows mobilephone, but.....who knows after they work together their new WP7 is easy to use like I use maemo in my N900.
forst time I use N900 I think its will be be difficult to handle like window mobile phone, fortunelly its not, its Nokia....very user friendly.
I am sure they will create a user friendly WP7 OS like symbian.
This is nice, even after Nokias CEO verbally slaughtered Symbian the fanbois still think its good? is it really so hard to admit that "yes i was fooled to buy an overpriced slow fone with a dead OS"?
Symbian was thrown out of the high end and replaced by an OS that ppl doesnt want. No shame for Symbian to lose for Android and iOS, but losing for WP7 is pretty lame, you'd have to sit in a wheelchair with flat tires to come in behind WP7.
rdca, 12 Feb 20113,000 people working nokia symbian developer will be cut off job as employement of relationshi... moreHi rdca, symbian will not die, Nokia will have 2 kind of business smartphone and mobilephone, my opinion symbian is a very2 good OS for normal mobilephone not for hacker.
if you have hobby to hack use N900.
It's funny how all you fanboys are trying to save a dying OS. Symbian was a good OS before iOS and Android. But 10 years in the making with 3000+ people and it gets its ass handed back by two OSes that's less then 5 years old.
These people are in denial that Symbian is cancer, and they are the ones that is slowly killing Nokia like a terminal illness.
It's a good thing they walk out. I hope Nokia don't need to pay these people "unemployment" if there is such a thing over there.
Embrace change Nokia. I hope you survive. The 2160 was the very first cell phone I've ever used. And I've used Nokias up until the Motorola ROKR E6 in 2007, then iPhone 3G in 2008. I tried to stay with Nokia. I really did. But the Symbian OS was just not keeping up with the times. I had no choice but to switch.
Nokia's Windows Phone 7 concept revealed! N8,C7,E7 is upgradable WP7 no thanks i don't like WP7....
3,000 people working nokia symbian developer will be cut off job as employement of relationship between nokia and symbian, its means no longer symbian by the year2012?right? Sorry Nokia WP7 i will not support that, i will switch to samsung year2012.... This is my last nokia phone N8....
Frank, 12 Feb 2011Nope not finish QT is still developing all symbian with their updates+ more apps.that was only a lie from Nokia how can it be develop if developers are already been fired by Nokia.
Yes Nokia will gradually discard Symbian,mayb e7 will be the last one,whereas for n9 using MeeGo OS still a doubt.
yad, 12 Feb 2011is it true nokia will be finish symbian OS plz reply thanks in advanceNope not finish QT is still developing all symbian with their updates+ more apps.
