    Nokia N8

    Hi guys not sure if this is in the right place so feel free to move it if needed.

    So i finally got my pre-order notification for the nokia n8 in the uk............only thing is theres no option for the orange network.......will it not be available on the orange network? If anyone knows the answer please let me know, i have several contracts with orange and am due an upgrade on my main phone but the only new phone i want is the nokia N8, it will be such hassle if i have to change my contracts to switch networks.

    Thanks in advance.

    Better, yet, why not call Orange in the UK and ask them. They should know whether they're going to have the N8 on contract or not.

    Of course, you can also always get a SIMfree N8 that is not tied/restricted to any operator and you can use it with any operator's SIM cards.

    The manager at local Orange shop thinks that they will be offering N8 in jan-mar 2011.
    Nokia World 2010 - Nokia Developers Summit saw the major push to developers for the N8 apps.

    If you a commerical developer you are best buying a Sim Free version, so you can test you app with the main telecom suppliers
    Thanks

    hmmm..I dont understand your queries much, but seems like an end users query rather than software development one. I case of former, please feel free to continue your discussion in the end users forum http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/

    Re: Nokia N8

    An Orange SIM card should work fine in any Nokia handset that has not been locked to some other operator/carrier. In other words, you can buy an unlocked phone and use it with any operator's SIM card, and you don't need to wait for that operator to offer the same model.

    This is an answer to
    I have been making up my mind to purchase Nokia N8 but i guess i need to put it on hold till someone would reply to the query mentioned by slimemonkey.I also own an Orange Sim and if Nokia N8 does not support this network then i have to get a new sim altogether.This won't be good..

    Would really appreciate if someone can solve this query for both of us.

    Thanks everyone..

    Nokia N8 and MP4 Stream

    Hi there.
    Nokia N8 is VERY promising, though I'm waiting for PR2+ releases.. quite a few bugs noticed.
    Question:

    With what em I able to stream .mp4 videoStream from the Web? Browser's Flash Lite 4.0 does not support most of the Web FLV players and besides I don't think they use HW accelerator anyhow..

    VideoPlayer does not take .m3u / .pls files... any ideas?
