This is a great technological from NOKIA,i think i will use it when i wanna transfer my Multimedia data,Contacts and many more^.^
NOKIA GET ROCK THE WORLD..XD
Nokia will really need this feature since their stupid phones always hang like crazy when you fill it up. Just like their N97 which takes ages to open files when full. Their large capacity is soo useless and $hit since it will only hang the phone like crazy in the first place.
Please Nokia kill off symbian... it just can't compete....
And how big is the n8
From the pics it seems large even when a guys holding it...
Saw this video a week ago .....Just want to say "The new KING is just about to step in mobile world"
Anonymous, 31 May 2010I love the fact that because I do not appreciate a phone, I instantly have an iPhone. Yes I ow... moreYeah, but that one time a week will save me a lot of trouble. I only use GPS on my Nokia when I get lost, once a month. So what?
Anonymous, 31 May 2010We have this on N900 also but only keyboards and mice so far. An awesome feat anyway, let's... moreAt the uni we always exchange e-books, movies, music and classes on usb sticks all the time, this is something really practical for students.

An awesome feat anyway, let's wait and laugh at apple while they copy technology nokia uses since 2007 (aka N810)
Anonymous, 31 May 2010I love the fact that because I do not appreciate a phone, I instantly have an iPhone. Yes I ow... moreyeah right i also have an iphone.but when my 5800xm come to my hand then i realise that iphone is a mediocare phone.dont promote the iphone apps cause i can do with 5800xm almost everything ur iphone can do.the 5800xm have every apps bout office and daily functionality,u can promote bout 3D games but im not interest gaming with a phone.
after using CFW almost every 5800xm user can have a snappy phone fully functioning and it only cost them $260? what bout ur iphone? and i think if i have nokia N8 i will use the USB OTG everyday,i always watching some movie in the bus and now if i can put the movie in flashdisk that will be great.
great feature. It frees the user from having to own a PC or pay huge data charges to there broadband providers. as such I expect it to be suppressed in less free markets like the USA. iMagine some of the newer cell phone makers could never offer such a feature as it would violate the complete control they have on the devices content.
Very useful feature... It would be really neat to copy files directly from usb drives onto the phone... Nokia is all about 'useful and practical' innovations... not changing wallpapers...
I had a similar feature on my Samsung YP-T8, a flash-based all-in-one media player. That was in 2005. The problem with USB Hosting (gsmarena needs to get their research right, it is not OTG but HOSTING) is that it sucks up power on the non-flash based devices, and devices that only charge via USB. External hard-drives (that are solely powered by USB) and some MP3 players (that charge only via USB) can suck the battery out of the device, and in some cases will suck so much power that it will force the host (ie, the N8 in this case) to turn off as the result. Your everyday flash drives worked just fine on the T8.
Nokia will have to be careful. It is due to the above reasons it is almost impossible to see devices with USB hosting; manufacturers haven't yet been able to perfect the feature yet.
I love the fact that because I do not appreciate a phone, I instantly have an iPhone. Yes I own an iPhone, but I also own a Nexus, both used for different reasons. Now I am sorry but this feature is simply a gimmick, if more than 1% of owners use this feature more than once a week I'll be incredibly surprised. And in regards to bluetooth file transfer on iPhone, it's an old shot, everyone is over it, it is clearly to protect the app store and itunes store and as frustrating as it is, the app store is powerful in itself, so it's a trade off you have to make. It's like if you buy a Nokia, you get a good camera but trade off by poor UI, bugs, underprocessed and frustratingly difficult customer service.I love my iPhone cause it does so many things far cleverer than other phones, but get incredibly frustrated with it's closed system, which does protect most end users, but at times they are far to closed, which is where android comes into it. However android isn't as fluid, has lots of bugs (3G issue the worst) and doesn't have as good of an app store, but i am free to break it however I want, once again trade offs.
A Very good idea from Nokia an better than using Bluetooth all the time to transfer media between phones,we will be seeing more innovations been put on the N8,an just dying to see an get my hands on the N8,but might not dive in straight away like i did when the N86 was released as i had 3 N86s in a week an the phone kept freezing an unfuntional,so might wait a couple of weeks before i get the N8 when its released
Oh Nokia..., a phone that is killing everything in multimedia! lol
Nokia is killing any windows and OS.X and any phone now, because you will not need anymore windows or apple computer...lol.
The thin line between mobile phone and computer is so blurred now. Is this what computers have become? I've my sight zeroed in on N8.
Anonymous, 31 May 2010A welcomed feature, i saw an similar ideas at ideas.symbian.org it is a site that deliver w... moreive put my idea in altho as yet its still not part of the architecture..its ok putting in ideas but i want to be able to code the app myself ,,huh no luck yet my computing self taught course has unveiled a billion things you need to know,,,i never knew computing combined so much tech how the heck did someone invent it all were they taking funny substances..It is the most complex topic i have come across and i thought my hnc in electronic and electrical engineering was ultra difficult..
