Nokia N8 Saving Engadget Editor’s WP7-killed microSD Story on Engadget

Yesterday, Andre wrote a post about how a Nokia N8 brought back to life Engadget Editor’s WP7-killed microSD, thanks to Antonio.

Some thought that Engadget wouldn’t dare glorify a Nokia by posting about such a story.

That’s now on Engadget 😀

So how does Nokia come into play here? Well, it turns out that Symbian is one of few platforms that is designed to handle a secured SD card properly — and sure enough, we were amazed to discover that we were able to use an N8 to recover our once-dead microSD card when seemingly nothing else would. Yes, the card was erased, but in this case, that’s seriously all we wanted — we just wanted to bring the card back to life. Very strange… and very good to know. Needless to say, be sure to keep a Nokia-equipped friend close by for as long as you own your WP7 gear

Note: Josh tried every device, even a PC but only the N8 could save the day.

Cheers to Yoel Gvirtz, Alan and Ayroth and of course Antonio for the heads up to

Say what you like about Symbian but we get things done 😀
