Exclusive Video: Nokia N8 operated via Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse!

I’m sure you have already seen quite a lot of the Nokia N8’s Features. I managed to get my hands on it again, and to be honest, the release date can’t come soon enough. Top Notch hardware, phenomenal camera unit and a very noticable faster Symbian^3 made up for a great hands-on experience. Obviously, i won’t talk much into the Software yet, since this is all in proto status. But trust me, its a lot faster than all other phones before. Symbian and Nokia show us with the N8 what is poossible without any high-end specs, which is a great thing.

One thing that also comes as a first on the N8 is the Ability to connect Bluetooth Input Devices to the Phone – and work with it!! In our Case, me and Christoph (from Nokia Austria, thanks again) have used a Logitech Bluetooth Mouse and good ol’ Nokia SU-8W, a Bluetooth Keyboard. How its done? it’s as simple as connecting a BT Headset, enter Bluetooth Menu, search for input devices, choose, enter the 4-digit-code, done. Once the Mouse is connected, there is a small Mouse Pointer visible, and there you go. You can even use the right mouse button to go back to Home Screen, even scrolling is possible. Connect your N8 to a TV, couple it with your Keyboard and Mouse, and answer your mails right from the big Screen!! How about that!?

The possibilities are endless, its up to you to realize them 🙂
