I tried my Logitech USB mouse and it didn't work although I have seen reports that it does work with some USB mice.

You can connect keyboard and mouse via USB. Plenty of movies on YouTube.

Re: is it possible to connect usb keyboard to N8؟

I have read few magazines had successfuly connecting them to N8. My guess is N8 can only use USB keyboard and USB mouse that consume very little power.

 

I guess you have to try it before buying any.

Can someone list the brand  names for the usb keyboard that will work?

 

I have tried several (Dell) with a 100 mAh consumption, but none of them worked.

Re: is it possible to connect usb keyboard to N8؟

I own an E6 and the list of compatibility should be pretty same with N8. I have tried with my office DELL keyboard (SK-8115) and Lenovo keyboard (KU-0225 with 100 mAh) that works and bought an iBall keyboard in my home which says "device not supported". Later I went to a computer store to try out different brands (none of the local and semi local brands worked...even the IBM laptop keyboard didnt work) and finally found logitech keyboard that works perfectly. I hope that same will be with microsoft and apple keyboards (only if you are ready to shed off some extra bucks..). I don't understand what the issue is ? some keyboards with same 100mAh doesnt work while some do...is it the driver ? I always knew that driver is the same for all usb keyboards...

Also the keyboard commands and shortcuts are weird (donno if they are different after a Belly upgrade as I have done that)...Does Nokia provide a list of keyboard activities ? ...Please NOKIA make an app to let the user configure some keyboard shortcuts and buttons which would be really helpful...

AFAIK any keyboard that acts as a USB hub won't work.  So get one without extra USB ports on it.

Depends. I could connect a mouse, but not a cheap keyboard. YMMV.

Had no idea about the feature and just tried it with a Razer tron mouse, Works perfectly. Although, the mouse does not necessarily light up at times. Also, tried it with a Logitech K800, have to say, amazing response.

 

There are a few shortcuts that work,

There are a few  others as well. If you have media keys on the keyboard, they work perfectly with the music player. Copy, cut, paste, & select all shortcuts work. Capslock, numlock and delete keys work. lol.

Well, if you find anymore, let me know.

Have fun. :smileyhappy:
