Beardyweirdy, _supposedly_ not a problem as a 8 second press on the power button boots the phone.

Hi Rafe,

The camera doesn't have any cover? How is the camera situated in its slot then? Is it recessed enough??

Yes, I can see it clearly now. It shows on the first image. N8 looks like an iPhone in some green casing.

well it's sunk a bit in the body, plus camera glass is reinforced one, according to Damian.

It no way looks like an iPhone in green casing. The iPhone looks like old winmo phones, and like PDAs!!!

Anyway I think it would look good in Black not up for all these crazy colours.

Thumbs down Do these people have a clue?

Giving user a chance to replace battery himself is something more than what they think. It shows Nokia isn't really a control freak like Apple and not looking to rob users with an opportunity which will sure happen in a certain period of time.

Another thing is: People does NOT like to give their devices to service centers because of time wasted, privacy concerns and treatment. If a Nokia shows white screen of death, one will give it to service of course... But for a simple thing as a battery change?

Non user changeable battery is something _only_ Apple can dare to do and succeed with thousands of free "apologizers". They aren't Apple, they keep forgetting this fact.

Rebooting

If the battery can't be accessed, how do you reboot when the software seizes up?Is there a reset button/slot?

Non removable battery

This is a bad thing. I used to carry 2 spare batteries in my pocket when going out for a whole day on the street. When I went travelling, more batteries are needed and they need to be replacable easily while travelling on the road.

Oh no. Non-removable batteries. How very iPhone-ish of Nokia.

Surely this is the end of the world.

OK, so we all hope this isn't going to be a twice a day thing like the N97 experience, but I used to have to do this quite a few times with my N95 and N95 8GB too.
Ditto !!

The OS

I hope that Nokia will start to show the OS in more detail, especially regarding the multitasking implementation.

So far what they have show past the home screen seems to be pretty much standard S60, I do hope there will be even more visual eye candy deeper into the OS.

Nokia really need to advertise this device to within an inch of its life, online among us who live and breath mobiles is no good, its the casual user who sees an iPhone ad and says wow, ill have one of those thanks. These are the people Nokia need to win over, to do this they need TV adverts more than anything else.

Phone looks very promising though.

Non changable battery

A friend of mine switches side from N97 mini to Iphone. He told me once, he has to watch for his battery consumption so he stops using a lot of functions he would like to use. So why Nokia want to impose such restriction on us. A very bad move.

sigh

No replaceable battery, at first i wanted to whinge, but then i realised i've NEVER replaced any of my phones batteries. However, as current owner of an n97, i sure as hell have had to pull them out and replace them frequently. Still.. why not have micro screws and allow replacement with a jewel screwdriver.. irrational for my situation, but still annoying that they don't present that option.

Still, promising overall, if not a bit ugly imo, looking forward to what they can do with this hardware in a more stylish shell. Maybe they can do an n9 in a dual slider format.. mmm.. touchscreen with dedicated buttons for games/media..
