Nokia N8: How To Set
Up and Edit Multiple
Home Screens The Nokia N8 is one of the best Nokia
devices we’ve ever seen, and the Symbian ^3 operating system offers
loads of new features. One of those is
the ability to use multiple home
screens. Flick your finger to the right or left on
your Nokia N8 ′s home screen, and the first thing you’ll notice is that there’s more than one home screen. There’s three in fact – a feature new to Symbian ^3. You can set up any kind of shortcut for
these different home screens – from icons to launching apps, to shortcuts
and bookmarks to the internet.
are also loads of widgets available for
the Nokia N8, letting you carry out
social networking, stream video clips
and much more. To get started, either tap and hold
down the part of the screen that you
want edit, or tap Options and Edit
Home Screen. As soon as you do this,
the screen will become darker, and
you’ll be able to move icons around and add more. To remove an existing widget, simply
tap it and then click Remove. It ’s just as easy to add a replacement, or a
widget to any of the other home
screens. Simply tap on an empty part
of the screen (indicated by a +
symbol), and you’ll be taken to the Widget Catalogue. There are loads of different widgets to
choose from – if you simply want to add icons to launch apps then click on
Shortcuts. Once you’ve picked your widget, click Done, or add another. To
choose which shortcut launches
which application, tap the shortcut
widget, and press Settings. Then
assign the app you want. You can do this for all three home
screens – press the button in the middle at the bottom to switch
between the home screens when
editing. Using this method, you can
assign different pages for different
occasions – a work home page, for instance, or one for your social
networking and gaming.
WOW 10 million mark of daily interest.
I know you all know that N8 made a
history and still making it.
phone to reach a mark of 10 million
almost 30,000 comments,
5500 FACEBOOK FAN WOW.
I guess N9 will be a more famous
phone. N9 will continue N8
domination. Nokia will surely make a loud bang
during the MWC.
HOW TO ADD "ANIMATED EFFECT" IN
BACKGROUND/THEMES/HOMESCREEN To get started,
~ click on Settings, and
go to Themes.
~Click on General, and
pick the theme you want to use. Once
you’ve done this,
~click on Options, Animated
Background and On.
~click on Theme Effects, and turn that
on as well. Then head back to your homescreen.
You’ll need to change the background to the default theme setting, so
on Options and Edit Home Screen.
~ click on Options, followed by
Default Wallpaper. Instead of displaying your own photograph, the
wallpaper will now be set to the
default theme setting. This only effects
one of your three
you can always leave your photographs on the others, or
change all three so they’re the same. Animated backgrounds are now good
The subtle colours highlight the
widgets really well, and the
background colour constantly
changes – in my case from teal to black, and back again.
The menu is
also updated slightly,
changing the way it appears when
you click the menu button Instead of
just appearing, there’s now a subtle transformation between homescreen
and menu, with the colours adjusting
gradually. Even though it offers the
same functionality, it looks fantastic.

Most of game is laggy coz it just port from Iphone and not fully optimized for N8,i wish Nokia could convince some developer to made exclusive game for N8. Has anyone play the big role in paradise made by idreams? It look pretty good even on device with no gpu accelerator like 5800 xpressmusic.
I have been a more than happy N8 user for 3 months.
I am still loving it days by days even though there really are some irritating bugs needed to be fixed.
But i really thank God that i am not like some user who need to return their N8 to service center.
These bugs just nothing major. Well, no phone are completely bug free anyway.
The camera is just awesome even in low light condition.
The video recording is just as awesome. The audio recorded is so good in quality even in loud and noisy area like karaoke.
The user interface is ok for me. Personally i like symbian's homescreen more than IOS and Windows Phone 7. Symbian^3 allow me to switch themes easily and i do it like once a week. It looks fresh like i have a new phone every week.
I took loads of video, photos and copied loads of videos into the 16gb memory. It is just really convenience. I also really love the USB-OTG features which allow me to watch movie on my 8gb thumbdrive.
The radio transmitter function also really cool and works really good with my creative speakers.
OVI maps also help me a lot because im really bad in direction.
Oya.. one thing i cannot or rather choose not to live without is the basic radio function.
All in all, i love my N8 so much.
Its in blue color btw :)
