It's early days with the N8, but where is the one touch access to Facebook (no app for this), Whatsapp, Ebuddy? It's nowhere near as great for social networking.

Sorry for telling you that but it really function not like the one on your Iphone that on paper has Bluetooth but in reality is like your multitasking completely fake!!

Wallet: Word Perfect. The money thing, important. Expectation about de new phone from Apple increase and the demanding barrier too. It has to be no another phone, a better one, it has to be the best and, today to be the best
phone is not like yesterday, things change fast. Are you, Apple, as fast..?
Not easy anymore. Big depredators are all around, huge companys with hungry,
very much investments, there is a lot of money ready to be change for smartphones and Apple need to be smart as ever. I wish you all the best.

First you need to carry that cable everywhere then the optional drive had to be fat32, who uses that anymore? Really? 4gb limitation is very bad. You cant put one HD movie to fat drive So you need to change it to ntfs=Not working on n8. If you want to use memory stick more than 4gb limit, need to change it to ntfs=not working on n8.

Maybe galaxy s2 did better job with USB otg? Hope so

Its not the Question of Who/How/where you Copied its the Question of How you have Implemented it and how usable is it in your hand is what matters...We all Had Smartphones from ages but after iPhone people have actually realized what a smart phone should be...NFC is a Similar Situation
