Nokia mentioned various times that the Nokia N8 will have Microsoft apps functionality, it is helpful for those that use apps such as Microsoft Word or Excel or wish to present a slideshow – just connect your Nokia N8 to a HD TV with play the slideshow instead of carrying a laptop around with you. The Microsoft Apps were at one stage available for download from the Software Update app on the Nokia N8.
The download from the Nokia Store is small but Wi-Fi is recommended as a large update may be needed to be done. If the user is equipped with a valid Microsoft Lync 2010 server, Lync Online or Microsoft® SharePoint server then the Lync and SharePoint services may not be used.
Many users have complained that their C drive gets full quickly due to the apps setting when it is downloaded, Nokia has made it that they must be downloaded to the C drive. One could always buy a memory card so that there is enough space, if an application does ask where the user would like the item must be downloaded then the location of the memory card is recommended!
