I think I’ve found the dealbreaker. I’ve just spent 10 minutes trawling the internet trying to find out how to copy and paste using the Nokia N8. And I’ve found absolutely no one with the answer. (A few ppl implying there is an answer, but no one sharing it!) Could this really be true? Is this a smartphone without a paste function? And if so, why on earth *does* it have a copy function?
The predictive text editor annoys the life out of me. If you get the wrong first letter, you’re sunk, it won’t come up with your word. My HTC wildfire can cope. I may have to design a test that I apply to all smart phones in future. So far something I’ve done with them has been photo blogging for Silent Sunday – though I can’t remember doing a photo post from the N97 or the E72. Both the Desire HD and the Wildfire allow you to do it – post a photo, go to the hosting blog, lift the text for the badge, come back to your blogpost, paste the badge in, publish and tootle off to enter your link in the linkie. Are you spotting two usages of cut and paste there? One for the badge, one to enter your post url in the linkie.
Is it really true that the N8 is a smartphone that can’t support this? Tell me it’s just that they think it’s so obvious that they missed it out of the user guide. Because it’s not in there, I’ve searched.
Disclosure. The Nokia N8 was supplied by ThreeUk on trial for the purpose of reviewing it.
