  1. Are there any significant changes in the new Symbian^3 platform? As most of the Symbian successive versions have no much changes always. The 12MP camera is surely one of the reasons why one would plan to buy this device, but isn’t getting a low-end Symbian phone and a digital camera separately better option than going for the N8?
