GL, 01 Nov 2010Hi There
Does anyone know if BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) can be loaded on the Nokia N8?... moreBIS is only for blackberry...Nokia hast its owb email/internet service, the OVI Mail. Actually it has a unified email client that you can configure to manage all your email accounts in one (yahoo mail, gmail, hotmail etc). It is written in the manual and you can also visit Nokia site.
But take note that all internet/email clients from whatever smartphne are network provider dependent. Means you have to apply for a mobile internet package data to connect to internet wherever you go, or you can use WAP/3G connection (more expensive), or use wifi connections.

Step 6: Set 'Switch to WLAN' to manual
Step 7: Set 'Data use in home network' to Always Ask

priyanka, 01 Nov 2010thanks oshiru,but could u pls explain me the diff. Btw the s60v5 and os3Both the s60v5 and s^3 look similar but the latter is compatible with Qt apps and s60 apps as well. Qt apps are smoother and run on this device like a dream. Qt is also a very easy framework for developers to write apps with and with it being open source means that it is easily accessible to any software developer. What does that mean for ^3? Well simply put, all Nokia phones from here would use Qt. All software can be used across platforms (barring those that require higher cpu). All developers can create apps and make more money for various phones. Developers have already commited to this platform and some big names too. Soon you'd have a flood of apps that are available on other os's but now developers have a motiv to create one for ^3. Lastly, ^3 has been designed not to use high processing power to achieve fetes of other os's, it has been designed as a light os. One that just works with less power comsumption but gives you a device that can go the distance. Nokia do realise that phones need more than just hardware too and therefore are pushing Qt and developers to create a good, solid platform. They also believe that higher processing power is the wrong way os's are going. Lower cpu's would achieve the same performance levels. That said, i think they'd still go up to 800mhz but their platform is more stable and the work is being done now with the N8 to get this right. That is why the N8 uses a Cpu and Gpu. It works like a dream. Trust me. I hope that helps.
[deleted post]I am 100% sure you didn't have N8, or maybe what you purchase is a china made N8 immitation...hahahahhaa! poor boy. Another nokia hater, why don't you just shut up if you really don't experience the excellent quality of N8....i am a real "smartphone (a phone that can actually do anything)" user and very much satisfied with the N8. Very blurred photo using a Xenon flash & 12mp camera? hahahaha! only idiots will believe you.
Took over 300 photos with my N8 today. Very, very well done Nokia. Thank you
hi friends i am having a problem with my n8 ...when ever i take a picture i always get (define netwirk connection) again & again ...so how can i solve this matter ...if any can help me out with this ...
priyanka, 01 Nov 2010thanks oshiru,but could u pls explain me the diff. Btw the s60v5 and os3symbian^3 is newest version of symbian os,which is faster and smoother than any older symbian os. And s60v5 is,i could say worst os among other(its one of reason why people change their nokia to others) yet s^3 is not a perfect os but an update is coming(hopefully)very soon. Trust me dear i've been using 5800(s60v5 family)and very disappoint with it. Thats my opinion,now decision is yours. :-)
priyanka, 01 Nov 2010no i talking about n97mini not n97.and one thing more dear,what do u mean by usb on the go,how... moreThe n97 is better than the mini. And the n8 is much better than the n97. With the mini, you can add smaller screen, no fm transmitter and less internal storage to my previous list.
priyanka, 01 Nov 2010dear samir i'm asking about n97mini which cost around 16000rs.and cpu is same in n8 as in n97mini.sorry priyanka .. i was talking about n97 .. the big one u might have got that when i said 32gb in mem .. and n97mini dont have 680mhz cpu or 3d hardwere accl .. n97 mini has 434 mhz and no 3d accl .. no fm transmitter .. on usb otg .. no 5.1 dolby out put ...
Sunny, 01 Nov 2010Will buy N8 Today :):) @ 23,500/- sunny its 22,500 not 23,500
priyanka, 01 Nov 2010no i talking about n97mini not n97.and one thing more dear,what do u mean by usb on the go,how... moreUSB On The Go or USBOTG is a tool to connect your thumb drive (aka flash drive/pen drive) or any Nokia phone or HDD (Through the HDD USB casing, if you have a normal HDD)(I somewhere read that you can connect upto 1.5 TB, if you put the power source different) or DVD RAM/ROM (different power source) or USB Mouse to your Nokia N8. It is a very useful thing if you want to connect your phone to other devices. You will get a micro USB to USB converter to do that. Connect the micro USB end to your N8 and the other side connect any of the above mentioned gadgets... and WOW... it is connected. If you connect a memory device (thumb drive/HDD/DVD RAM/Nokia Phones), the file manager will pop up and let you use the memory as if it was built in inside your device.
I hope that answers your question. Take care.
