Starplay: Someone told me that the battery is not user replaceable... Seems a bit odd as all previous Nokia's had replaceable batteries... Just wondering if someone could clear that up?


This is correct. To keep with the design aesthetics the battery is non user replaceable.

Hasn't posed a problem for me at all :)

You can replace it yourself but opening the case would void the warranty (after 3 years that is not applicable anyway

The N8 uses a standard BL-4D battery and is actually easy to access if you know how (Google can tell you in a second). Just bear in mind that replacing the battery yourself will void the warranty ... because of this we have extended the warranty on the battery included in the N8 to the same length as the phone: 12 months.

This would usually be best in a new thread, however: this is probably because it is already syncing or installing support software in the background. Try restarting both the phone and the computer if nothing else works; this should clear it up.

Stowaway Bluetooth keyboard : check
Kensington Bluetooth Mouse : check

nice to see a cursor come up when mouse active, very nice.

Default sync failed, that's good I can now run back-up, how do I de-select backup of his exchange server contents (I need to do this so I can clear his phone and test with a self-signed certificate)?

any recommendations for a Remote Desktop Protocol application for N8? With Keyboard and Mouse this should rock!

There is a free Panorama app by Nokia on the Ovi Store which uses the same system as on our other camera-centrist phones ... in fact, I find it to be even superior.

Hi Brent, How long is the battery life in the real world with wifi use, playing videos for 2 hours and taking  approx 60 photo's.... would it last all day still?
