> In reply to [deleted post]What a joke dude Nokia is far better in giving support to users
for instance take 5800(2008) and satio(2009) both have same os rite
nokia is still providing updates for 5800 and it has provided kinetic scrolling to main menu what about sony they couldn't even provide a simple kinetic scrolling to satio and they announced to drop symbian fuckers cant admit that they cant handle symbian losers
and the update they are providing for xperia well every2 knows how much time they took lol

You mentioned about porting S^3 to S^1 devices and that there are no devices with tech specs that are needed for S^3. Does I8910,Satio and Vivaz/Vivaz pro ring any bell. They have enough of cpu/ gpu and ram memory

I love android...really do !!! But I'm tired of always waiting for some updates either OS or apps, it's always something with android... spend more time maintaining and tweaking the damn thing than actually using it for it's intended use... u get 2.2 and then you start tweaking it...but there'g bloody Gingerbread... AND UR LIKE.. OMG... will my phone get the update ....official or XDA and like ROM....
O well.... I can't c myself going back to Nokia... not yet anyways :)

to be have an update to 2.1 is a necessity. However, a Froyo update is already a blessing.

There might and there are apps to give s^1 devices some of s^3 goodies like spb shell gives then multiple homescreens, but they definitely won't get the os. They would never get Qt support neither would they ever be able to run apps designed for s^3. Why? No gpu. Not enough ram. Comparatively slow processors. If nokia had any intention of updating them, (which like i said earlier is not possible) don't you think they would have said so?

> In reply to [deleted post]Well have nokia released the minimum hardware requirements for symbian^3, no, hence lets not presume anything. Symbian^3 can be ported to s60V5, or at least the 3 homescreens, don't require any hardware.

> In reply to [deleted post]Great device support. Yes. So why would they cripple the fuck out of the Nokia E72? Why didn't they offer the same (mal)treatment to their other devices as well?

Time for nokia to update s60v5 phones to symbian^3, it is possible however nokia wont do it since they don't care about customers.
