      Excuse me, Alireza! Even if some one is a millionaire or a billionaire, he will not buy a mobile for someone, that to without any relationship. If this started happpening, everyone will request a rich person to buy for him. Many people do not have enough money to buy expensive mobiles, that does not mean to ask for a mobile from a rich person. No one will buy Nokia N8 for you, and I am 100% sure about it. AND Please learn to speak English, even the slang English is not like this.

    Please learn to speak english, neither of you made any sense! lol You would have been better off speaking in your native language I would have understood you better.

    I have to say, that this is the best cameraphone to hit the market… ever!
    Having said that, it's not for me, I'll be getting the Samsung Galaxy S…
    I'd argue that this isn't really in the "smartphone" category – it's more media-centric…
    But for those who don't like infinite customisation and a phone that has average processing power (not 1Ghz I don't think – and quite a sluggish Symbian 3) then it's perfect! (not a criticism by the way)
    I think it's a good medium-class phone!

    I plan on buying this phone. (I´ll buy it and then tell my wife afterwards shhhh!).

    What really attracts me is the camera (12 MP and Xenon flash- wow) and navigator. The cost of a phone, camera and navigator separately would be more than the ticket price. I´ve stayed away from the smart phone market so far choosing Nokia handsets in the 100€ range, which have been great, but this phone has enticed me to want a smart phone.

    iPhone… barf, Nokia N8 all the way!

    The shape fails to compete with iPhone. It has to beat the appearance of iPhone to lure customers away from that product with a first impression. Then it needs to show that it has a lot, I mean a lot more contents than iPhone.
