  3. oh no, it’s so powerful that I can forget about iphone for a while…but like iphone, it’s too expensive now though it might be worth for money when we try to make ourselves stylish.

  4. To connect my office network, right now I am using Nokia N97 with SymVPN software from http://www.telexy.com and this is software for S60 5th phones.
    Can I use SymVPN and other S60 5th software on Nokia N8 phone as well?
