Awful lot of flames going on here regarding symbian
an android, my personal experience is this. Having used a Nokia 5800 for about a year I decided I was due an upgrade and was very tempted with the n8 as being used to the OS and always seen android as somewhat over complicated . Anyway in the end I bought the HTC desire hd and to honest I now realise how far behind that symbian actuallly was, and no It's not about the gloss of the OS but the functional layout and way android actually incorporates things is very well thought of.

Just look around how many successful androids are out there you moron.Its for everybody.Not like shitty Symbian when compared to Android.

Cool concept. But I wander how well it will pick up speech. Also Google translate is not the best out there.

Carry on trolling and bashing, we're doomed either way :)

Ok let us discuss it this way,how many android phone device you compare you compare nokia n8,almost every month theres many crap android phone comes to beat the functuality of nokia n8,from camera,reliable apps,many kinds of format video playback that nokia can play,correct,fit to screen,usefull apps support,hd recording that android try but it failed,most of that only nokia can do.
But the many crappy android phones cannot do it alone
