Rocket Singh, 09 Jan 2011This N8 is the last 'n-series' gadget to run on symbian OS (S^3)... moreI don't believe Symbian 3 will be phased out. If u have some proof, please show it here.

Makes no sense to phase out Symbian 3 as its the most stable OS with great battery life and Symbian has been around for 8 years.

This N8 is the last 'n-series' gadget to run on symbian OS (S^3).
All future n-series phones will be meego based (until Nokia finds something even better than that).
But N8's PLC (product life cycle) gonna be longer than N97 for sure. Latter was phased out from the market even before it could celebrate its 1st birthday properly.
The point of telling all this is that this is the right time to buy N8 because N9 is still far away. You won't feel disappointed like i felt when I got my N 97 mini barely one month before N8 hit the shelves. Only if i could have waited...

And y is d most trusted mobile brand wasting time in releasing updates i noe NOKIA dosnt do things in haste, bt den it could b a bit early, and why should N8 users wait so long 4 exploitin S^3 at d fullest, i noe S^3 is more capable den its current state. Bt Nokia noes wts best 4 their customers and will/should/atleast give it a try to release updates on time

Gitty, 09 Jan 2011Whatz the type of screen protector which already comes with N8 ?It is kind of a Clear screen protector, but it actually not a commercially available screen protector and it is a part of the Nokia N8 packaging material. I said it is a clear screen protector because it is clear and gloss, i found it producing a bluish tint in my display and i removed it as soon as i got the phone (I never considered it as a screen protector ) so i can't comment a lot there because i have no big experience with it (may be 5 - 10 mins).

this one word pretty much sums up the whole of the nokia n8. it is an absolute brilliant phone engineered to almost perfection. The physical design, and the super glowing AMOLED screen is brilliant for playing HD games, movies and the LOT.
The responsiveness has not been a problem at all, unlike other Nokia phones which i have used.
However i feel that the features of the N8 are not being used to the full extent by nokia. although they have produced such an elegant phone, the lack of apps within the OVI store is an evident problem. this operating system is new in the market, but needs to be well presented to other companies to generate interest to make apps (including games) for the Symbian^3 OS...
why has apple been so successful in making people and companies want to produce application, is what has lead to the success of their phone.
Over all, it is a masterpiece of a phone, but its full features need to be taken advantage of to ensure that it becomes the success it deserves!
