him, 13 Jan 2011which update. Please tell me . For which it availab... moreThere is an update called Apps Update 1.0. You can get it from SW Update, I hope it is up for all market. It wont show up in firmware update (*#0000#)and not what we were expecting and it is not the PR 1.1. My phone still says PR 1.0 after the Update. It may be a pre update for PR 1.1,it increases the stability and overall speed. Home screen switching speed has increased, Theme effect animations are snappier than before and the search is improved. It may contain some other bug fixes. Waiting for the PR 1.1..

bullzeye, 14 Jan 2011how much airtime do you use in a month, excluding the calls etc ... moreWell, smatphones are really dependant on the intenet. If you are going to download songs and apps (remember you get 6 month unlimited downloads from ovi) and games especially is huge (around 80mb)then the more the merrier. But then again, its up to your own personal use..

Remember I told you that I have a 300mb bundle on? Well, my dear friends at mtn failled to include it in my contract, so what happend was that I only used airtime for about 4 to 5 days and I downloaded songs and weather app, I had about 3 outgoing calls (I sms more, but I have a bundle for that)and it used round about R42. Bundels are way cheeper..

I hope this helps and that you get your phone real quick!

I also got the three small updates as well, as I recall two were app related and the other new midnight themes..

awesome phone with full multimedia capabilities. One of the most "superb" features is the usbtogo. Coonect to N8 pendrives and hard disks :) u can browse from the phone,take files and play them ^_^ It has also HDMI ,so u can connect to ur tv and enjoy movies at 720p ^_^ not bad right? There are a lot of applications not just the iphone but all the main applications exist like skype , swype ,etc ^_^ More and more updates make this phone even better. Now it is just released the PR 1.1 that rocks and soon we expect PR2.0 that will have +50 features and changes in OS and UI. Also it has Gorillas screen so u can relax with ur screen and dont expect to break every drop like iphone ^_^ These are the best features that made me buy this phone :) Absolutely happy to have it. Iphone is too fragile ,android os is too messy for now (in 1-2years itll dominate).If u like multimedia then this phone is a must ^_^

This phone has a non responsive screen, and the resolution is horrible. Any HTC, Motorola, or Apple phone is better. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really glad that I have this phone, because its like the last N-series phone that has SymbianOS. To me its the epitome of what Symbian can be like with decent support and the hardware specs that makes everyone look twice.. Now NOKIA is making their MeeGo N-Series phones and in two years, when its time to get a new phone, they would have perfected MeeGo.

I think I might be going crazy.. but loving every second of it with my N8 XD

Anonymous, 13 Jan 2011why nokia havent choosed maemo for there phones it would have be... moreaccording to tomia honen-the best mobile industry guru in nov 2010 said "if any OS has the capability to reach masses is the symbian".
Nokia made phones for all type of symbian is open source and linux based it is best suited for masses.
maemo is develop by nokia in jan 2009 and after that nokia and intel made a joint agreement to develop the best os in the world for mobile,computer,super computer,car system,navigation and astronomy and its work started in may 2009.

The new os is called meego.mee from maemo and go from goblin(intel os)
Nokia said that now N8 was last handset in Nseries portfolio and from now all Nseries will have meego os.
Now all high end phones with no.9 as suffix will feature meego os.
Like N9 coming in MWC.
