taking phones with generally equal price
Samsung Galaxy S = 233ppi
Nokia N8 = 210ppi
HTC HD2 = 202ppi
iPhone 3GS = 160ppi
Don't know from where everyone has made the conclusion that N8 has a terribly low resolution screen. Difference is their but little.
Agreed that Nokia made a lot of mistakes these years but that does not mean to bash them for false reasons.
Everybody who is getting the phone, remember to get the Midnight-theme. The "Software update"-app should offer it to you. It has all new icons that look really good. On the downside the theme overall is a tad dark, but Midnight Aqua (it has many different "subthemes") looks good and goes well with the blue N8 I have, for example.
im planing to buy N8 from Orange, jordan.. coz they are first to have it available(faster than regular shops)...
does flashing the n8, unlocks it?

My laptops gaming mouse wouldnt work, but my fiancees normal USB mouse worked. My mouse requires drivers, hers doesnt
As for bluetooth, well, bluetooth stuff always works with a few clicks/taps/automatically cos its a standard.

I just tried it now with my USB mouse and it worked, it took a while to recognize it though, not like in the video, that was really quick.
It didn't even ask for the driver or installation! How could that be?
[deleted post]I have used the following:
Nokia: E90 (still using it since 3 years), 5800, X2, N8 (1 day now)
iPhone: 3GS, iPhone 4 (currently have it)
Samsung: Omnia II, Galaxy S, Wave 8500
Blackberry: 8900, 9000, 9700
Which to be a high end or not is not really important to me, but you could tell me more what exactly is the purpose of your question and I'll be glad to answer you.
W. Al Hakeem, 11 Oct 2010This is really nice !
Is it doable with other devices too (other Nokia's and non-Nokia's)?No idea, first time I hear about stuff like this.
The USB OTG can also be used to connect a USB keyboard or mouse.

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.
