Connecting other Symbian Smart Phones with Nokia N8 via USB on The Go

USB-On-The-Go is a much advertised feature in Nokia N8. USB-On-The-Go feature in any mobile phone allows the phone to be used as a USB host. You can connect USB drives, portable hard drives and other phones to Nokia N8 and see their content and copy to the phone as well. I tried connecting my Nokia N8 with Nokia 5800. I connected Nokia 5800 via the USB port in N8.

As soon as I connected N5800 with Nokia N8, the USB menu popped up on N5800. I selected the ‘Mass Storage‘ option which automatically opened the file manager in N8. I could see all the memory card content that was there on N5800. I could browse through all the files and folders without any hitches. The navigation through the files was very smooth and the transfer speed from N5800 to N8 was too fast as good as a normal USB transfer that you do on a PC. I even connected Nokia E63 and found all the content clearly accessible on N8. This really opens a whole new segment for mobile phones. Imagine yourself travelling on a long journey with a hard drive full of movies and songs, simply connect to your N8 and view them. This truly leaves us with the same question – “It’s amazing technology. What will you do with it?” This is just a trailer, stay tuned for more such amazing feature reviews.
