What could be the manufacturer for the production of the Facebook mobile phones responsible has not said.

Nor is it clear whether the device is sold exclusively in Facebook label. Another previously unanswered question is whether Facebook created a completely new operating system or relies on an existing OS such as Android and it changed only a few. In contrast to the technical details after all, the staff is working for the development of Facebook mobile. But the assumption is that there will be, for the Facebook phone more of a starter device as a high-end smartphone. When and if the Facebook mobile is actually on the market is still wide open.

Highlight is and remains the camera of the N8, which provides 12 megapixels and can record video at 720p. Much is expected from the new version of Symbian 3 OS. Symbian 3 supports multiple home screens and should be made for social networks. Since apps are increasingly important to support Symbian 3, the Qt cross platform and UI framework. This leads to the run those apps under both Symbian, as well as under MeeGo, the other smartphone operating system from Nokia.

The hardware and especially the camera of the N8 were still generally seen as positive; it seems to happen to the software.
