i own all the phones(Nokia's,Samsung's,Apple's,LG's,HTC's,SE's etc etc..) and i must say all are equally good! :P :D
me, 17 Mar 2011i dont understand why ppl support symbian so much when even Nokia have given up on itI dont Understand what u r dude...... U dont know anything .....nokia has not given symbian up(& wil continue makin symbian devices) ......nokia is still best selling in low mid range (sym s40 & s60).......but in high range ppl stil prefer android and iOS.......to compete these and again become best sellin in high end phns nokia adopted WP7 (there is no doubt wp7 smartphones wud be high end due to high min system requirements).......
nokia have been experienced 4 years in diz arena.and its the oldest phone maker company.with those experiences nokia could make some great phones.does u know y nokia is still dveloping symbian?its bcoz they dun want to kill it as symbian is used in million of phones which is been used by a lot of people.symbian nver died.it will grow.
[deleted post]y doesnt it concern me? i like technology
and besides y is it ok for ppl to make their opinions on products like the iphone/ipad but not ok to say anything about symbian?
i thought this was a forum
it would be nice for some1 to explain IF there something about symbian that im missing and therefore would make this new symbian 3 device worth my hard earned money.

aaptk, 17 Mar 2011there are a lot of android phones, not two years old, that will never get an 2.2 update and th... moreyeah your right the apps do work from s60 etc but lets face it those apps ares the kind of apps that we are starting to get now. and are you telling me that when nokia no longer use symbian on their smartphones ppl will still want a symbian devices as smartphones? wm7 is replacing symbian as their smartphone os. so if you want to keep up to date with current smartphones you will have to move away from symbian this mean all apps you currently have or will purchase on your brand new device will be an utter waste of money.
the reason some android devices cant have the latest os update isnt due to google giving up on it but because of the hardware of the device.
in the end of the day im not saying symbian is bad im just saying that if you want to go down the smartphone route surely you would want an os that will be developed further as a smartphone OS
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2011I have Nokia N8 and it is the buggiest thing I ever had! turn it self off and on, suddenly fre... moreSpeaking about luck, your N8 has probs like that, i never had any problems before. Only my 4 yrs old N95 showing those symptoms. If you update to the latest firmware it should also get better
well well well. I have been using Nokia since I was little.. I wonder why dont I get those kinda Nokia phonez which dont get freezed.. As of now, I have N8 which is really an awesome one.. I bet, none of the phone manufactures company can beat Nokia.
aaptk, 17 Mar 2011they have a plan?!
that makes it true? maybe for android, but not for samsung
android is use... morehey is symbian is grter or andriod...?\
what is IOs games
what is bada
if ny one knows plz let me know ty
Mick, 16 Mar 2011I thought they said that the N8 would be the last Symbian^3 device they would make?hey cn ny one tell me what is symbian^3 ...plzzzz
Nokia seems confused , they keep releasing new phones with the same exact OS why ????? Making the people who bought a nokia phone unhappy and making the people who wants to buy nokia confused about buying now or waiting for the next (which comes in a month or 2 ) , I think nokia should focus like Apple or Google on OS to improve it more and make it as an update for the already released phones not making new one for each update in OS. THAT'S INSANE NOKIA
me, 17 Mar 2011pity for me? hahaha im not the one interest in a device that uses a os that nokia will not be ... morethere are a lot of android phones, not two years old, that will never get an 2.2 update and the apps that require 2.2
same with iphone - 3g has a limited number of apps
nokia will use symbian as long as it makes them profit and they will keep upgrading
your igorance is more clear when one knows that even some s60v3/5 apps work on this symbian. upgrades to these new devices will be gradual, like ios, but without any negative effects on older devices
stalker, 17 Mar 2011Really? Are you sure? Haha!
What claim! As if he represents the entire population on earth.... morepity for me? hahaha im not the one interest in a device that uses a os that nokia will not be pushing to its maximum potential. iOS android or wm7 is a better choise cos at least you know that the os will be improved over time. just think all those apps that ppl buy on their new symbian 3 will be worthless when they have to upgrade to a newer OS.
dont get me wrong i like symbian infact i still have my e90 that i use for my bussiness handset but to buy a new symbian 3 device as a smartphone when it will soon be put into retirement seems somewhat pointless
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2011Don't forget that arm11 is roughly 2 times less efficient than cortex-a9, so in fact latest co... morethey're not more efficient, for symbian they would be overkill and wasteful
symbian ui, camera and multimedia are powered by gpu, which doesnt leave a lot for cpu to do.
unlike android which uses gpu only for games
Don't forget that arm11 is roughly 2 times less efficient than cortex-a9, so in fact latest cortex processors used in optimus 2x,atric,sgs2, etc are, theoretically, 12 times more efficient. Symbian does not require cortex -a9 to flourish, but at least 800mhz a8 class core to sell anything above 300€.
me, 17 Mar 2011surely people wont be buying symbian 3 devices as nokia is killing symbianReally? Are you sure? Haha!
What claim! As if he represents the entire population on earth.
I pity you for that! LOL!
I love to argue, 17 Mar 20114 million in one month ??? Thats got to be a joke...Maybe you saw that in your dream....Even t... moreyes, my mistake, it was three months
like i said, galaxy also comes in many forms and has been on market longer. n900 is not symbian so it cannot be included
if you have a link to symbian3 sales alltogether, post it
