Not really sure I see the point. I'd wait for the WP version, or just get a slim model point and shoot.
Yes and no. There's strong argument that Symbian (since it's latest updates) is performing adequately. Yes its OS is not as loaded as IOS or Android, but having already got a smartphone running android I find myself really not using 80% of the features. I txt, call and take pics, I'm sure Symbian will be ok in this regard. I understand its not going to cut the grade for the majority of smartphone users. My wife and I (due to living different work/lifestyles) want very different new smartphones come Q4. She's eying up the Note 2 as a potential candidate, whereas my dream smartphone would be as small as possible with ridiculously awesum camera.

Yes it's larger than some point and shoots, but i already have a decent point and shoot, i dont want to cart two things around.
I'm almost looking at the 808 as a camera first and phone second. Find me a camera (any camera) that costs $500AUD and gives u 41 megapixel, or at the very least takes 8 mega pixel pics with incredible detail (allowing for cropping and zooming etc).
