Early this morning (at least in my time zone) Nokia announced that they are shipping the Nokia N8 out to those that have pre-order and then all other channels will start receiving the handset. After the initial delay, they stated that they would still make it by late September, and that they have. Right on the last day handsets are going out to the lucky early adopters.
Already an unboxing has appeared online of the device.

Nexus One Froyo Issues ?!

madreaper's picture


Not often mentioned is the issues a portion of the Nexus One community is experiencing since the 2.2 update hit their phones.
Users have been experiencing random app crashes, slow performance and the need to constantly reboot their phones.
What makes the issue even more complex is that some of the affected users have been able to solve their problem with a hard reset or micro SD card reset. However these methods do not work for all.
Our own terryjohnson16 has been hit with this bug. He has been able to make his phone stable by ending the "checkin" process after the phone has booted. Then after that he has to let the phone rest for awhile as it is still unstable for a short time. Once that is over the phone will resume normal operation until it is turned off. Then this process begins all over again on startup.
What makes matters worse is that Google has recently stopped selling the phone directly which lessens the chance of Google releasing an update for the device, for those that are affected.

Today Nokia announced their new high end camera oriented smart phone and their first Symbian ^3 OS device. (Even though FCC approvals and other information regarding the device have been floating around for at least 24 hours before the announcement.)
The Nokia N8x series line has not seen an update since the release of the 8MP camera packing N86, which at this point seems to be the last non-touch alphanumeric slide smartphone.
