Video: Nokia N8 USB On The Go tutorial

Hot off the press, ahmedp800 posts another N8 video for your enjoyment.

This time showing off a neat new feature of USB OTG. The ability to access memory cards, external hard drives and even OTHER PHONES (e.g. Nokia C5 in this video) by attaching them to your Nokia N8.

This is super useful as you can completely bypass a computer for file transfer and even forget about switching memory cards.

USB OTG makes it easier to transfer files on the go. With larger powered hard drives, they’ll need to be hooked up to the mains. Imagine the use of larger external hard drives filled with your videos. No need to transfer to N8, just connect with N8 and connect N8 to your TV via TV out or HDMI. Instant Media centre.

      I have another silly question. Are there plans for a symbian Tablet? It would be great with the usb connectivity feature.
      Yeah if only if only and if only. Symbian should work great on a Tablet device, maybe a meego tablet seems more likely.
