The PS3 uses a Nvidia Geforce 7800 class GPU.

But the Xbox 360 uses an ATI R500 codenamed Xenos which was the first GPU to have unified architecture (all-around Stream processors instead of dedicated pixel and vertex shaders units).

Had u been a SE or ESPECIALLY Nokia user, u wud hav had the ovi stores(nokia) to match ur needs. Samsung n LG have no support for 3rd party apps. Its kinda useless buying a high cost phone n u cant even customise it to match the power inside(Re: Samsung Jet)

This is an excellent move by Samsung. I hope it will increase their market share. Here in East Africa its mainly dominated by Nokia.

As for Symbian my man you have no idea what ya talking about logically speaking Symbian has 47% market share and windows has only 12%.. I am sure the figures do say alot.

Symbian is the future!!

IŽd go for every OS, Windows Mobile,Android,Iphone,my fav is WM, but never for Symbian again, I have now a Symbian phone and gosh, i hate it.
Symbian is most garbage of all, i hope it will vanish completely from market as soon as possible.

Symbian is oke if you have a good processor running it. The n95 8GB has a dual arm processor and works fine with symbian. But the n96 is total crap with his arm processor like the n97. N95 8GB is the best symbian phone.
