anonymous VIII, 17 Sep 2010One of the items included in the N* package is the battery. Wha... moreIt's preinstalled for that exact reason. They arn't normal screws either (although they can be opened with a "normal" screwdriver of a certain size), but since they are special screws with no special screwdriver, it's certainly preinstalled.

One of the items included in the N* package is the battery. What I do not know is if it is already installed or the owner has to install it. If the owner has to install it, then there cannot be a loss of warranty for removing it. If it comes pre-installed, then I can see and issue if the owner removes it.

guest, 17 Sep 2010"First, why would you need to remove the battery yourself? ... moreThere are idiots cheering for each phone, goes for Nokia and iPhones :D

As long as the phone has a capability of doing a full power cut off from the power button (like in computers and laptops), it's fine. Most are complaining about the nonremovable battery cos they did that when the phone crashed. Earlier Nokias havnt had that full power cut off function cos of the removable battery.

Capacitive screens have their pros and cons. They are extremely sensitive in ideal conditions, thus very nice, but not usable with ie. gloves on or with normal stylus (the capacitive stylus at least for N8 has quite a big tip, so not as precise as a normal stylus, usually).

Pinch to zoom, well, it's a nice thing, having more features is never a bad thing. I probably wouldn't have minded as long as it would've been implemented some other way. Like the "volume" hardware buttons could be pretty nicely used for zooming in and out. I'm quite split around pinch to zoom myself, it's handy, but somehow I don't really like it. Maybe it's just me, but the gesture is somewhat "hard" or unnatural to do.

I'v been wondering that same thing for one year now, always nokia fans has been pick on iphone users about that. And now when nokia do the same it's ok and they are saying exactly the same things what iphone users have sayed to nokiafans.

surprise, surprise! Nokiafans are such a "Coat-turners"

its the same with pinch zoom and capasitive screen, first its useless and no-one needs it, and now finally nokia has it too and it is very nice and good thing.

friday, 17 Sep 2010"By the looks of things I think game developers are already... moreIt shouldn't be about the lack of capability to run those games. I can't say for certain, but I'd claim that they might not take advantage of the dedicated GPU (since any other device those games are ran on do not have one, so the support might not be there automatically)

First, why would you need to remove the battery yourself? Well, I don't know anyone who carried a backup battery with a phone that had a removable battery but I guess those exist.

Nokia does not confirm the N8 being late. Why would the deny it if those sites were right? Remember when the Eldar guy said 26th of August as release date (Nokia never said that), people thought it was for real, this has a same kind of source. Some random indian guy said it will be delayed. Nokia denies, so I don't believe it either.

Nokia philippines must be pulling numbers out of their ass then, as they have never stated those dates you are saying on anywhere else. Don't blame Nokia if your local retailers make shit up.

So far they havn't failed a single official release date they have given, mainly cos the last week of sept/1st august is the first and only official date given along with Q3 2010. Neither of those have been failed to fulfil yet.

I'm not sure what did that one guy mean with "full keyboard" in portraid mode, but the N8 surely has a good QWERTY in portraid mode.

The reason iPhone does not have real multitasking is cos it freezes most applications. Music player is among the few that actually continues to run on the background. Given, many things that you would multitask don't have to actively run in the background, but you might need some things really to run on the background and not just be frozen.

The lack of video light is shame, though, but it's understandable with those optics and everything that you can't just fit in everything there. It's still a world of tradeoffs.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2010AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgain delayed What the F$$$$$$$k ... moreI really wish you're wrong

we're tired of waiting, I'm a big Nokia supporter but the patience won't last

if it got delayed again, then it shows clearly there's some kind of issue

  • SidewindeR

Hey everyone... did you all check out tyhe Augmented reality app on the N8? It's so cool and works really well. Hmmm can't wait for this beast to be unleashed. I have no doubts what so ever about the lack of good apps. I think all the basic apps are already covered even befor the release on the OVI store. Now the only thing missing are somme really good games. By the looks of things I think game developers are already working on some quality games for the S^3 platform.
