I had a few requests for information on Google’s Applications on the Nokia N8, and their own Social Networking tools. I don’t have too much to say about either, aside from the continual issues I had with the social networking (which took a few days to start working fine) and that the Google Maps application was fast, but I figured I may as well upload these galleries for you to take a look at!

Carl Butcher asked if I could post "some screenies of the user interface in general”, and to be honest – I’m glad he did! The interface is something I’ve been quite sceptical about, but am glad I’ve had a chance to give it a go.
If you’re like me, when you spend $700 on a new phone, you want it to be absolutely amazing and something you’ve never seen before. But, when you turn on the Nokia N8, and you’ve used a symbian device before, you’ll be annoyed. I found the fact that it was so similar to other devices annoying at first, but after using it for a day, I’ve learned to appreciate that I know how to use all the functions of the device – even though it’s been such a short time.
What better way to review a phone than to take it out in a spin! I figured a day out in the city, with the sun brightly above me, would be an excellent test for the Nokia N8.
There were a couple of things I really wanted to test out – and they were the battery life, the ‘screen-in-sunlight’ issue and the camera.
I have to admit – when I was told MobiCity would be shipping me a Nokia N8 to review, I was both excited and worried. I was excited that I would be able to try out a new phone, and share my review. But, at the same time, I was worried – I had agreed that I would use this phone as a complete replacement to my current phone for the whole week. Considering I am very sceptical of this phone, it should be very interesting.
