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.

You can point him as much proof you like and he totally ignores it and keeps repeating his same flawed arguments.

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. :-)
