Volume level range in Nokia N8
In previous S60 device models, the range of volume setting for audio playback has typically been from 0 (mute) to 10 (max. volume).
In Nokia N8, the range is [0..10000]. Applications that rely on hard-coded values for volume will experience problems, such as playback volume being too low.
Do not use hard-coded values for volume or make any assumptions on the maximum volume. Always use the MaxVolume() and MaxGain() functions when calculating the actual playback volume passed to the audio device.
