    • @BigBrova: What do you think of the quality of software for Nokia services (Ovi Store, Nokia Messaging etc.) ?
        
    • @JamesBurland: How should Nokia advertise the N8 in the mainstream media?
        
    • Debate on the impact of quality has on 'user experience'. So... would you rather have a device as buggy as the N97 with the UI of the iPhone, or a device that looks like the N97 with almost perfect quality?
