Demo: USB On-The-Go on Nokia E7 #maxis10
What stands out the most in Nokia E7 among other smartphones? Not the build quality. Not the keyboard. Not the 4″ CBD screen. The video calling capability isn’t at all revolutionary.
USB On-The-Go. That is by far the the most impressive feature on the Nokia E7 in my opinion. With it, you can manage files in a USB flash drive or an external hard drive right from your smartphone.
From a business point of view, it can be useful for last minute document or presentation editing. From a casual user point of view, the amount of songs and videos you can have in your phone is limited by the number of USB sticks you have.
Reading files from a USB stick right from your phone is impressive. But using a USB mouse and keyboard, fully plug & play? Mind blown.
Potential: Connect a wireless keyboard and mouse to the phone using a USB hub, then project the display on your TV via HDMI and you will have a giant E7 that can be remotely controlled.
