The HDMI issue is definitely nowehere near top of the list of N8 flaws. Mini HDMI is a real standard and it’s probably going to be quite popular. Nokia are actually ahead of the game on this one.
The real problem with the N8 is that it’s an old-skool device in a world of web-services. All of the other leading phone OS manufactures have tightly integrated with a range of web and commercial services. My Android device benefits from all the google services, wheras my N8 is an island.
The N8 is really the same concept as the N95 almost three years ago. That’s it’s real fault.
