FRESH OUT OF ITS BOX, my new Nokia N8 fired up with two bars of power then kept running while I played around with its interface. I ignored all the helpful tips about getting to use the phone because I wanted to see how much my previous knowledge of the Symbian User Interface worked in my favour. I was able to install Gravity, SIC-FTP, Facebook, Foursquare and the Mobanode widget before the phone politely went into its power-saving mode. I'll have to pay for Gravity when it reaches the end of its demo mode but since I consider that application to be the best in the Ovi Store, I'm happy to oblige.
