    Are you sure about that you are entitled to discuss about a prototype device on a public forum? Or is it released already?

    Yep, as the device is not out yet, you have a prototype etc. device, and you should really consult your NDA before making any public statements on the device.

    You can make a hard reset by press the power key for 10 -12 seconds.

    Do you also read or just write? #4 contains a suggestion already.

    Yep, or contact nearest Nokia Care, they propably could re-flash the OS, so all custom data would then be deleted.

    Key Combination to format N8 is "Volume Down + Camera + Menu Button" and turn on N8 while holding those keys

    Warning: Ovi Maps and Ovi Store will be gone as well so please don't do this if not neccessary...

    As I mentioned above. Don't do if not necessary...

    For Ovi Maps you could download it over here http://betalabs.nokia.com/apps/ovi-maps-306 but for Ovi Store 2.0 I still have no luck yet :(
