[deleted post]Ok ! Best luck wid wave ! Symbian 3 isnt out yet ! Price range ? When wave was release it was costly
USB On the Go is an amazing feature which turns your mobile in to a mobile computer...
OK.. Let me describe what it is.. The conventional USB connectors in mobiles are only capable of 'BEING CONNECTED' to a computer as a peripheral... They don't have the capability to act as a USB host... (in other words, they can't identify other peripherals... They only can act itself as a peripheral... That's all..)
But with 'USB On the Go' features, Nokia N8 can act as Both USB peripheral and USB Host...
In other words,
If you connect your mobile phone to your computer, it'll act as a peripheral just like other mobiles do...
If you connect another USB device (such as your pen drive, your portable hard drive or another mobile phone) to your Nokia N8 (using the particular cable for 'USB on the go') then it'll act as a host... (It act as a computer...)
I think everybody could understand what I'm saying.. and Can you imaging the potential of this wonderful feature...?
** You can connect your USB Pen Drive directly to the Nokia N8 and explore the contents.. (You no longer need a computer to exchange files...)
** You can extend the capacity of your mobile by just connecting it to a USB pen drive (let's say with 32 GB capacity) and you can listen to the songs in pen drive directly from your phone as long as two devices are connected... (That means you can extend your Music library up to any capacity...!)
** You can connect your Portable hard drive (let's say 1 TB) with huge lot of Divx movies, to your mobile and can connect your mobile to your HDMI TV and watch movies without the help of your computer... (How does it sound...?)
** If you have another mobile, then you can connect that mobile to your Nokia N8 and exchange files just like you do with your computer...
** Not only above... How about other USB Devices...! Such as USB Mouse, USB Key Boards etc... Though it's not yet declared by Nokia, I'm pretty sure, by the help of 3rd party applications, support for the above devices will also be available with the release of Nokia N8...
Now you see... It's a mobile computer... Nothing else... I don't know why still some people want to compare this unit with Samsung galaxy S or Samsung wave or iphone 4g or what ever it is... This is a Smart Mobile Computer... and above those are just mobile phones... END OF THE STORY...!
[deleted post]OK. That's fine! What would you to with zip or rar when your phone's OS crashes?
Wave's operating system must evolve so much. Now it is really crap.
Please go to Samsung's forum to praise Wave. Here the people really want to read the N8.
- One disappointed Wave's owner
Sammy, 08 Aug 2010Wave has an equalizer with 5.1 dolby surround sound. Poor girl.N8 edge class 33
wave class 10
I used to have it on my many years old 6600 !
Wave has poor net connectivity ! Wacko :D
[deleted post]So sad ! Nokia support it natively ! U r blind S-hole ! U r so poor kiddo :D ! No equilizer ! Wacko ! :D
[deleted post]Samsung WAVE's video recording quality is totally drag down by it's sound recording.
A video failed if the sound quality is sucks regardless how good the resolution is.
N8 should definitely win in this area.
"Nobody cares for N8!"
how ? Look at the votes,more than 77,000 ! Daily interest 92% !
U dont like and nobody cares 4 U
TC, 08 Aug 2010N8 only has a better stillbild-camera while Desire with FROYO has better hd-videorecording. N8... moreWhat is the proof that Desire can shoot better video than N8? N8 have dual mic which should have better sound recording that can match it's video quality.
Didn't you read the spec of how good is the battery life of N8?
I am a symbian user. It does not crash on me thus far for more than 3 years. Plus, this is Symbian^3.
Saying Symbian is not a mature OS is purely denial.
Even if it crashes, you don't need to remove the battery. Just press and hold the power button for several seconds and it will restart.
Even if you really want to remove the battery, just unscrew it.
Why are you here if you don't like N8?
[deleted post]If no one care... or to be specific, if you don't care about N8. Why are you here?
You are right that most functions mentioned are not in Iphone. I am sorry for that cause i don't really like and care about Samsung Galaxy S at all. Thus i won't go and check it out.
But again, why are you here?
Are you threaten by N8?
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2010I think N8 battery life is good enough.
It is indeed a little sad to not have a video flash f... moreN8 only has a better stillbild-camera while Desire with FROYO has better hd-videorecording. N8 has only 256 mb ram and Nokia batteries have always been far worse than others, mobility needs great battery. Symbian is still not a mature os and crashes far to often so you need to remove battery to be able to restart, N8 can not remove battery.
N8 is all about the stillbildcamera. Nokia-fans are almost as fanatic and blind as IPhone-fans.
Nokia N8 highest 60 FPS with total 1440 only.

Samsung wave with highest and blowing n8 with 1614 !
and with my WAVE it went upto 1660 ..
Samsung Wave is the clear winner in ol acpects !! Only camera is good in n8 that only for still pics but video 720p is same in both but in reviews i like Wave's HD recording more !! god bless outdated N8..
Have fun with Bada. *shudders*
Now that I look at the N8 its an alright phone. It has n-networking and a speedy 3G connection. The only thing holding it back is its RAM and processor speed. Probably not worth $400 though.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2010you people r not putting 1ghz processor nd then you end up having slow processing when will u learnI don't think it is slow.
Even if it is, i prefer to have a slower but all rounded smartphone than having a extremely fast but featureless boring phone.
Galaxy S, 07 Aug 2010Galaxy S is far far better than N8. N8 has no stand in front of Galaxy S. Galaxy S beats N8 in... moreYou just say something as if you never said it at all.
Can give some reason why you think that way?
As for me, Galaxy have nothing to stand out among the cloud. It is just like a faster version of Iphone 3GS.
There is no other thing that Galaxy S can do but Iphone 3GS cannot do.
N8 however have many things that Galaxy S cannot do.
N8 have better camera. 12mp vs 5mp.
N8 have xenon flash. Galaxy S have none.
N8 have dual mic for video recording. Galaxy S only have 1.
you people r not putting 1ghz processor nd then you end up having slow processing when will u learn
TC, 08 Aug 2010The problem with Nokia is their useless batteries so N8 will not be a "mobile" compu... moreI think N8 battery life is good enough.
It is indeed a little sad to not have a video flash for low light video shooting. But it has a bigger sensor and dual mic. I can live with that :)
I don't like HTC Desire because it's loudspeaker is not on par. It's LED flash also not strong enough.
Video and Camera capturing quality is.. umhhh i have to say.. its really suck.
So N8 is better. :)
Peter, 08 Aug 2010get over it brand-fanboys, enough is enough
let people "themselves" choose the ri... moreDo you know a lot of people actually posted here to ask opinion on which phone to buy and which phone they shouldn't?
So what is wrong with those people who answer them by sharing their opinion on which they think worth to buy and which are not?
As long as their posts are not breaking any rules should be fine. But preferably, stick to the topic.
