Video preview of the Nokia N8 PR2 firmware shows it is getting there
It seems that things haven't moved much along from what we saw a few months ago, but now at least the split-screen QWERTY is shown, along with some of the new browser. This version is probably in testing mode already, so it should hit your Nokia N8 in the next few weeks/months. Not that there aren't custom firmware concoctions out there.
At least we know that Nokia is determined to make good on its promise to keep updating Symbian incrementally, including with the new user interface, hints of which we saw recently.
