Guys plz note that the update is available on kies now... BUT BUT BUT. its not the one tht every1 is waitn for 1.2 It is the 1.0.2 Its just a small update where hardly any difference is seen, battery same, touch same, speed almost same, only email part has been updated and there is option of phone update in settings, which u cannot in 1.0.2, u will be able to do it in the 1.2 version which is launching in india late january or feb... Even swype which every1 is waitn for is nt availabe in this version.. It will be available in 1.2 which we will be getn very l8. U have a option to manually flash and update ur phne, bt tht option is damn risky.. If by chance some step some where goes wrng, ur phne can be dead forever.. Then even the service center wnt help u cz uve broke the warranty terms of manually performing it.. So dnt try to do it.. Nd keep waitn...
Nd plz note that 1.0.2 and 1.2 have a vast vast difference.. 1.2 will solve 100% drawbacks whereas this is solving only 20% bt for sure somethng is better than nothn

nokia n8 vs samsung(wave,galaxy s)
amoled vs Super AMOLED (The thickness of the touch sensor is just 0.001mm (!) this allows the screen to provide better images and to have great visibility even in direct sunlight (Samsung says that they perform 20% better than regular touch AMOLED outdoors). Super-AMOLEDs also have better lifetime than regular AMOLED and are very responsive to touch - even better than the iPhone's display)
360 x 640 pixels vs 480 x 800 pixels
nothing vs DNSe (Digital Natural Sound Engine)
nothing vs video light(wave) power led flash !!!!!! (two times powerfull then ordinary led)

When you touch anything on the screen it takes at least 2 seconds to react vs super internet broswing experience
i'm not sure that 1.0.2 is 1.2 or not..today i got my wave from service center and then cheak the phone...the version is 1.0.2 and the additional features is added in settings sofware update via ota...but i'm disappointed because the music plaer is not that good like before...the 5.1 is now playing with normal effect..not allowed to play with bass and rock effect...and the games like kroll and bruce lee is removed from memory card..nad those games are no more avilable in app store...
I tried to upgrade the firmware via Kies, but it still says This devices software cannot be upgraded. Bullshit.
