Nokia N8 running Symbian^3 is the suck

Sigh. Nokia may be selling phones like hotcakes to the developing world and my father-in-law in Poland, but they can’t make a popular phone to save their life. The new N8, leaked and reviewed on Electronista is little more than a rehash of Symbian circa 2000.

Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin goes so far as to jokingly accuse Nokia employees of sabotaging the company’s brand from the inside, else it might be “impossible to explain” why the N8 exists at all.

Ha! Oh, Nokia! Silly silly Nokia. Anyway, the N8 takes some nice pictures and supports HDMI, because that’s one of the things people have been looking for for in a phone.
