I've heard you can connect a bluetooth mouse and keyboard to the N8,and using the HDMI cable,that would make it almost like a laptop. Is there any truth in this?
AMANITA, 11 Oct 2010Dont be sorry ! Itz ok ! Whatz the colour of ur N8 ? Have u installed any themes ?I just got it yesterday, didn't get a chance to do anything more than exploring it :-)
Mine is the white-silver color, I saw today all the other colors and liked also the blue one, it goes nice with the default theme.
[deleted post]I wasn't mocking you or making fun in my reply. I was saying that the way technical specifications are writen is not understandable by many people (myself included). My request may have sounded as making fun or mocking you, but I assure you that wasn't the intention.
I do appreciate if you would, and don't get me wrong, put the technical specifications into life examples.
To explain, and you can check it the comments on GSM Arean, a friend was kind enough to bear with me and explained to me what the ranking of GL Benchmark really means in terms of the actual device in hand. It had figures and numbers related to amount of resolved traingles and several detailed stuff. At the end, I got it that it has to do with the amount of resolved details in graphical environment (mainly games). He/She was also kind to guide me to a video that demostrated the test on different mobile devices.
That was my request from you, though I understand if you don't want to be bothered with clarification to anyone, but I care to clarify that I was not intending to make fun of you :-)
If I could re-write the request, I was asking if you may translate or rephrase the technical terms into examples that normal (not technical people) could get.
Regardless of what your answer would be, I apologies if I offended you in any way as this was not my intention from the question.
Regards & respect to all respectable individuals.
the nokia N8 is an amazing handset even though im a not a user of the n8 .... but still i think the handset is better than the I phone 4.
[deleted post]You mean that you can tell us what is the best phone in your opinion. Cos you certainly can't say that what suits you will suit me.

LAMBO, 11 Oct 2010Thanks alot . Sorry few more Questions about the N8 . 1- IS The arabic language good & sup... moreI'll try to make it straight forward.
1. Arabic support is the same as on other Nokia (5800 example I will use since I have it already). You receive arabic text normally, I set mine to English by default, when I write a message, I choose "writing languange" and change to Arabic, type in Arabic and return back.
2. The speaker is single (I'll take your words for than because I have looked at the phone and couldn't actually find it) and yes when you play the same song on both N8 & 5800 you hear the same quality. BUT on the N8 you don't get the wouble from high volume that you get in the 5800. I don't know what is the reason for that, but I would say it is the built quality of the N8 over the 5800. The speakers themselves might be stronger in the 5800 but the output is very close.
I hope that clears it. :-)

I can say symbian is better than ios atleast...
Wheez, 11 Oct 2010Personally I take extreme pride in my phone being made in Finland. Even if the only difference... morewhat's really funny is that i was only thinking today how cool it is that nokia is made in finland and competes with the mega economies of asia and united states. Being an australian with a european back round, i am proud for the fins. And actually hearing one say how proud u guys is really nice. One thing i'll tell you, is that no matter how good a nokia mobile may or be, people here trust nokia the most as a brand.
Why do some people say that
symbian cannot handle more than
360x640 resolution? I think they are
the same people who said that
symbian cannot handle more than
240x320 resolution 2 years back.

I can tell you as far as what I have personally experienced, the sets that are in the box are nice but not really your best option for music, but using it as reference, it gives you the same quality as teh 5800.
I'm using a BT headset for the voice calls only at the moment, but I'll get a music headset from Phillips that I heard about and shall post my comment on that in few days or if I got lucky and found it today :-)
Appologies again for the wrong cpoied text.

Could you be kind enough to explain how / why Android is better than IOS and other operating systems? This explanation would definitly raise your feeling to an appreciated comment that would benifit all of us. Please note that there was a comparison earlier made on the +ve and -ve sides of Android (it wasn't against IOS though) so your clarification would be highly appreciated by many of us.

Cool, 11 Oct 2010Hi Hakeem..
I think it will be good to ask u a question since u r using the Finland make and ... moreFirst, if you ask me, from the long time of using Nokia mobiles, the source of manufacture is not really that important as long as you get it from an authorised retailer.
Regarding your question, there is nothing different between the 2 (Finland / China) N8 sets that I have and my friend has. They are exactly the same and if I wasn't asked about it, I would have never known that fact.
My 5800 is made in China, it's almost 2 years old and never had a single problem with it until now. I would recommend just to make sure that you get the device from an authorised dealer / retailer and you should be on the safe side.
I hope this helps.
