I cant understand, how people cannot understand, that for example in third world countries most people cannot afford an High End Device or an iPhone...(yeah, for me, iPhone is not even close to High End [my opinion, not yours, i know])

Symbian is in that case best, because their phones can do all to and have a really good price for it.

In countries like that, they are happy to have GPS or something like that and dont care for your stupid absolut smoothness.

This prove that Symbian can not run anything fast even on a 1GHz CPU! Symbian totally sucks, but Nokia-fans/employees/kids are still to blind to see this!

nokia is wasting their money on creating these sh*ts...
who the hell will buy these phones?

they should make more MEEGO devices or focus on their
WP7 though personally i really prefer the meego especially one on n9

It still lags? Hm... I think it should be capable of HD recording. But it is so damn thick!

If Nokia really want to get out of the slump...they should eradicate all Symbian Anna/Belle on their roadmap then take MEEGO on full blast

So as the other companies prepare to enter 2012, Nokia enters 2010. I guess they are lagging just like their phones.

For everyone that is blasting away at some stuttering and lag... Android lags from time to time as well. Many users complain about a ton of lag on their Androids. The only OS I've noticed hardly any lag on ... is iOS. But this is all from personal experience. I think this device looks cool. Although its too small for my liking and the camera isn't nearly as good as the N8, so I'll pass.

Not bad in it's price class, beats similar priced Android phones in battery time and camera.
