Nuwan, 02 Aug 2010Dear all,
I just watched a video about Nokia N8's 'USB on the Go' feature... I think so man... moreJust to clarify Nuwan post IF THE HARD DRIVE REQUIRES MORE THAN 200MA OF POWER YOU MUST CONNECT THE HARD DRIVE TO AN EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE (PAGE 100 USER GUIDE)
Whilst that may apply to some portable HDD.
In my opinion it does will defeat the object to purchase anything below a 16Gb USB.
With the N8 having 16Gb on board as the increase in storage of anything else is less than 100%.. also if you defrag the USB drive (which you will need to do) it is recommended that the usb is only 85% full.
Doubling the size of the usb does not cost twice as much but spending 1/2 say 16gb may only get you 4GB of the same brand
There are reasons why a USB is now the thing to get.
More & more System Administrators are restricting direct access of a mobile via a usb cable, and anything with a operating system, smartphone (N8) NO!
Secondly personal security do you really want to "advertise" ownership in an internet cafe etc?
So with the N8 having 16Gb on board it does seem prudent to at least have something of equal capacity to where you can download to quickly to which should not run out to quickly.
From extrapolation a 12mp jpeg is approx 6-7 Mb! So investing in anything less than 16Gb will only be a temporary stop gap. if you have 10Gb stored on the phone what not backed up?

N8 will be the biggest hit in India ( mean nokia will break its own record ) , and i can
write it in any wall ;).
Now i m waiting for price tag.which is most important i think 22000 to 23000 is reasonable price.otherwise i will not buy this phone.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2010Should i buy this or should i buy the Samsung Galaxy S???u shld go for N8 ;).
i will go for Nokia mobiles anyday than plastic samsung or lg .
but i might think abt Apple only if it has 3G video call facility
It seems the N8 might not be having document editor for word, excel and ppt. It will only come with document viewer right? That'll be a big minus for me!
you know thos peapol who vote for this device of 1/1/1 , i am talling you , we all love this device and we not gonne let him wherever happend , do you understand that !!
its the N8 number one for a lets 5or 6 years , not apple iphone4 or htc dezire z , or smasung .....

Wheez, 21 Sep 2010No, Nokia just confirmed the statement to be false. First preorders are still being shipped du... moreIt still does not show much credibility from Nokia... Late, not late... Can they make up their mind??
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2010This phone will kill the iPhone G4, i am so glad that Nokia is making a comeback and with a bash...I don't think the N8 needs to (or will) kill the iPhone 4 (it has no G at the end, btw :P). They are sort of in the different markets with different customers. This here, is a real smartphone with something other than eyecandy. iPhone is a really nice device for the trend factor, but feature wise it lacks so hard that anyone who gets a smartphone for the sake of getting a smart phone would probably look elsewhere.
Also, stuff like free navigation, FM transmitter, etc are clearly directed at abit older users, not the pre-teen who likes the iPhone with it's smooth and flashy transitions and the fart apps.
Both are and will be awesome things, but I see they have so different pros and cons that they won't excactly be fighting over the same customers.

Don't think that --- It will be launched in India at the max within one week of launch in UK (if not before) India is a market that N8 is definitely trying to capture --- In India normally low end Nokia phone is a big hit --- but High end is dominated by blkbrry/Samsung And now even low end market Samsung making grt progress.. So N8 is their key to Success in India
