Do-it-yourself guide shows how to replace the Nokia N8's battery
There's no arguing that removable batteries on certain smartphones make it very simple for owners to swap out ailing ones at will without having the need to send it away to some repair facility – which can cause you to be without your phone for a few days or weeks. If you plan on scooping up the Nokia N8 when it's finally made available for purchase, you can follow this do-it-yourself guide in replacing its internal battery. Although it's still very rare to find handsets that don't offer removable batteries, this service manual from Nokia Care details in simple steps at how easy it is to accomplish removing the Nokia N8's internal battery. From the looks of it, you'll simply have to unscrew a couple of things toward the lower portion of the handset where the battery compartment can be found – so it would seem apparent that you can get this done without visiting a repair center. However, you'll want to keep in mind that doing it yourself can result in voiding the warranty if you happen to screw something up during the process. So that means you'll really have to weigh in your options before going through with it.

I've been a huge fan of Nokia for a long time, and although this phone looks great, Nokia's really falling behind the competition. The galaxy s is going to be $500 off contract on release date. How much is the N8 going to be? Plus, touch symbian really is a joke. I used an android phone for a month only, and, despite using Symbian for over 3 years, I can't wait to get another android phone. Everything is so seemless, and new features are being added every day. Nokia had a real winner with Maemo 5 on the N900, I loved that OS, but they needed to update it and support it more.They need to keep Symbian as a business platform for non touch screen phones and come up with something completely new for touch phones, instead of just porting it. Granted, Symbian^3 doesn't look so bad, but that's the thing, it's not something that "WOWS" you, you're just left saying, "Hunh, I could get used to that, it's not so bad." Why pay so much money for a phone if it's underwhelming or barely does the job? I'm through with Nokia.

Well, I for one am definitely going to get this handset. I like the look of Symbian^3(which is more of an evolution of Symbian^1)and can't wait for Symbian^4! People can say what they will about Nokia and Symbian, but I(and many, many others)just love the OS. Android is nice, but Symbian is the best. It is not prone to near as many crashes as android. Top it off with Maemo becoming MeeGo, and Nokia has two winning OS's on their hands.
