@ UJJ

It's understandable why so many once loyal Nokia users are moving over to the opposition. It's all about updates to the firmware. Nokia have a rubbish procedure of announcing the next update, leaking videos onto Youtube then make people wait for months before they start rolling out the update.

When Samsung announced the Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S it only took them a month to actually release it (although it was pulled the very same day and re-released the following month). Nokia on the other hand took four months to release Anna after they announced it's release back in April.

I'm sure you will be happy with the iPhone and wish you all the best. Will you be keeping your N8 like I did when I got a Galaxy S?

Cheers

@th3d,

If you think that IOS (apple iphone) is far off better than Symbian, WP7, android, Meego and RIM, then why are there so many people still buy phones with these platforms? Its because we had used them for over the years and served us in all of our communication needs.

I think you should follow this link and think again how many users go for IOS and how many users trust Symbian, android and other platforms. By the way, money is not an object for many smartphone users.

Make research before you post.

UJJ, 27 Nov 2011Ray, I have lost patience with waiting for Belle . I was equall... moreLotsa ppl feel the same these days, Nokia has no ecosystem and WP feels like a doomed platform, N9 and MeeGo is officially killed by Mr. Elop, Android is getting more and more buggy and unstable with every new release, 2.3 should not even be in beta yet, and they already pushing out newer versions, none of which work as intended. And RIM and Symbian are not desirable options for the average user.

So iPhone is the one who stands alone as a stable reliable platform where virtually everything always work. But your freedom is the price you really pay for iOS (and same goes for WP, no user control, no freedom, no file transfers, no card slot, everything goes through controlled nazi services)

Ray Hipkiss, 27 Nov 2011 The FM Transmitter on the N8 is pretty weak. You can hear an ... moreoh ok thanks man, so N900 is better then. The problem with N900 is that even when using the FM Boost app its so weak that it must be near the antenna or near the radio itself, if for example a backseat passenger will find songs on it there will be bad or no reception. That way the N85 is good.

The N900 i used b4 was stolen, so i need to buy a new second hand unit no matter what, N78 being he cheapest option but the 8GB limit of the micro SD card is an unfortunate limitation. N900 has 27GB free internal and supports 32GB card, it doesnt get much better than that, how i wish it also had decent signal strengt.

The FM Transmitter on the N8 is pretty weak. You can hear an annoying hiss and crackle when playing music through the cars stereo. Don't know of any apps that transmit song details over RDS.

AnonD-3538, 27 Nov 2011 @ JayDiCee Thanks for the appreciation, it's very welcome... moreRay, I have lost patience with waiting for Belle . I was equally frustrated waiting for Anna and I bought the N8 last Christmas!!! I Bought myself an IPad 2 yesterday and it is quality.
I will now also buy the IPhone for Christmas!

I have waited for the IPhone to improve over the years and I have never been tempted before until now! Ŷes it's ridiculously expensive but it just works. Apple get their updates out quickly unlike Nokia and the user experience is top notch!

There are no excuses for Belle - it's been available for months.

Anyway , may I take the opportunity to congratulate you on the help that you give to everyone on this site. Regards UJJI

TimmyTee, 26 Nov 2011Please advice... buy N8 for $299USD or 701 for $325USD? Can't d... moreOMG, u r really outdated. Yeah i liked my 5800 back in the days, but thats ages ago, after i replaced it with an N900 it took 3 minutes before i realized how bad touch experience the 5800 have and i could never use my 5800 again.

N8 is obviously better than 5800 but its already outdated also, dont even think about it, you get so much better phones at that price from other brands. Lumia is even worse, it isnt an option for me since WP is a very restricted OS that will not give you freedom to use your own phone as you desire. Android is a buggy and bad OS but its better than WP ofcors.

Or just get an N9 16GB if you really want to stick to Nokia.

My N85 is getting bad, i use it or MP3 player in my cars, the FM transmitter is what i need here. Anyway the N85 is due for replacement.

Now N900 obviously have the best sound and i love the way it can transfer song title to the car stereo over RDS, but the FM transmiotter of N900 is weaker than N85.

So should i get an N8 instead?
how far away from the car will the N8 transmitter work?
and is there apps or widgets that will allow N8 to send mp3 info/id3 as RDS text?
