Symbian was pushed to mid range cause nokia didn't have a midrange smartphone market some improved maemo and joined intel and they deside to not just make maemo to meego but have this OS intergrated in to other devices that are powed via intel CPUs
So maemo/meego is not just a highend smartphone is the future OS of some devices
They are even working with BMW to intergrate there widget system into th car

I agree with Corleone! In hi-end smartphone category, Symbian is DEAD! So, Nokia made Maemo and then with Intel turned Maemo to Meego... They don't believe that Symbian is good for hi-end devices!

@imac Symbian solds so many handsets because even the worst mobile phone of Nokia is Symbian-based! In 10 people who have a cheap symbian phone by Nokia, 8 (from people who I know) of then don't even know that their phone is "smart"... Because you go to buy a phone with 200 euros, without care about smartphones, and they sell to you a symbian phone. Probably that's the way Symbian sells too many handsets! Because of Nokia's good name and clients... :)

Just like with apple's 3.1 lol
No massive battery drain firmware for symbian1 cause it's already power efficiant lol
And now that symbian3 is coming soon it's gonna be even crazier

Don't hate cause google pulled an apple and messed up on a firmware update that drains your battery

Don't think so. They'll be stuck with those slooooow and slugish OS's forever. At least Android is alread fast. Even the lowest spec'd Android can wipe the ass of a high-end Nokia symbian phone.

Symbian sux so much that you have to double tap on menus on an outed resistive touch. WTF? And scrolling is at 15fps only. How lame is that? The UI is the slowest sh*t ever!! And when you install an app it needs these tons of confirmations and certificates. Gaynesss... I am sooo not surprised Symbian has a DECLINING market share while Android is being called the fastest rising OS eveer. SO you can shove your symbian down your *ss 'cause no one gives a sh*t about it. I know tons of people moving from symbian to Android and they couldn't be happier.

froyo is effecient OS don't consume much cpu power as eclair does.
Comparison shows that froyo runs 4x faster with the same cpu.
the question is the willingness oh HTC, as even Hero I'm sure it's capable to handle froyo! :D

They would have thought about it from along time ago about the OS and the hardware so people what have the g1 and g2 suck since it can't support 2.2

> In reply to Spyroscesarsc @ 2010-05-22 01:05 from 3AY4 - click to readHere is an article i read yesterday"Research company Gartner has
published a breakdown of the
smartphone world for Q1 2010, and
the results are looking incredibly
positive for Nokia. With over a
quarter of a million Symbian
handsets sold every DAY, rivals are
going to have to work hard if they
want to catch Nokia. To find out more,
join us after the break Ö
Gartnerís research of the smartphone
world shows lots of figures for Q1
2010, but the most important ones
are the fact that Symbian devices sit
at the top of the pile, with over
260,000 Symbian handsets sold every
single day, and making up just under
half the smartphone market.
Granted, there are other
manufacturers that make Symbian
handsets in small numbers - such as
Sony Ericsson - but the vast majority
of Symbian phones currently on sale
are made by Nokia. With devices such
as the Nokia 5800 - which has sold
over 8 million units on its own, itís
easy to understand how the figures
have become so large.
In comparison, RIM (Research In
Motion) sits in second place, with a
market share of under 20 per cent,
with Apple ís iPhone OS taking third,
with around 15 per cent of the
market. Even with Android - which
makes up under 10 per cent - the
other three players struggle to match
Symbian in terms of units sold,
highlighting just how dominant
Nokia is in the global smartphone
So, despite what you may have heard
about the dominance of other
smartphone platforms, it looks like
Nokia and Symbian are here to stay"

I have tried android and its a mess,,its all over the place in these areas,,

The market place needs tidying up with more sections,,you just get a long,long list that goes on with video players mixed in with mp3 players and none ive tried have equaliers and some play video and mp3 at same time???

The themes is a nightmare having to download other bits of software to get them to work..

Some get this version some get others and even then the wait has been a year now for the dont know were you are..

What about editing software and buisness apps well it may be their but there is no help finding it plus editing would be useless i suppose with awful cameras..

I cant get it its just to allover the place..

So, if android is outdated, and Symbian is THE OS, why many symbian users abandon it for buy Android devices?
The "outdated" as you (and 2-3 more people) believe Android will soon become the No1 smart OS, and your favorite Symbian (and of course not outdated, hahaha) will be only for fans like you guys... Because the power of Google and companies like Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola etc is bigger tyhan the power of Nokia. CHEERS!
