A few days ago, I noticed a mouse cursor in one of Nokia's N8 overview videos. It was later confirmed to me that the N8 does support Bluetooth mice. Michael Hell of FoneArena has done one better, having uploaded a 5-minute long video demonstrating this awesome feature.
Pairing with a Bluetooth mouse automatically places a cursor on the N8's screen. It's great that all these new features provide an automatic response in Symbian^3 (another example being the automatic opening of the File Manager when plugging in external drives via USB OTG). Michael shows how navigating the UI works; it's basically like using a desktop computer.
A scroll wheel can also be used in lists, which is very welcome. The cursor looked slightly jerky though, but maybe there'll be an option to adjust cursor speed.
August can't come soon enough.
