As with most modern smartphones, the Nokia N8's impressive array of built-in functionality represents just a fraction of its appeal. This is down to the amazing range of applications that users can download. With everything from fun games to more practical apps on offer at Nokia's Ovi Store, N8 owners are effectively free to change what their phone can do on a daily basis.
And that's not all. Pre-installed on the handset is Nokia's Ovi Maps mapping software. This teams up with the N8's GPS support to ensure that the phone doubles as a fantastic satellite navigation device, offering turn by turn directions to locations in thousands of cities worldwide.
Just as handy is that the N8 can be interfaced with USB memory sticks and portable hard drives. In so doing, users can access files and potentially hugely expand their mobile's storage capacity.
