lol i honestly think nokia is crap end of story and i own a nokia but i can admit i should never have bought 1
hamsteyr, 24 Aug 2011I think what Nokia Sucks (silly name btw lol) is trying to say has a lot of valid point howeve... morewho knows nokia will change their ideas if they receive a positive response..by the way nokia is going to support n9 i saw that on their fb page..
ohoooo look what we have here now. everybody is copying Android now.lol 1st iOS, now Symbian...but still too ugly.
Diehard nokiafan, 24 Aug 2011running out of ideas??are you dumb...nokia is going to release worlds first meego phone which ... moreYes they are. Nokia is running out of ideas and that's why they are so behind in the touchscreen race. They don't know how to make a good touchscreen phone that everyone will want and now they are playing catch-up.
Spin it whatever you want but Nokia's collapsing marketshare proves that people are sick and tired of Nokia's antics. Android is rising at the expense of Nokia's marketshare.
To everyone here :
Belle is good news. It doesnt matter in the end if symbian copied android or android copied iOS. In the end, WE, the consumers benefit. We now have a multitude of devices and Operating systems , much more than we did 5 years ago, and all manufacturers are trying to make them better. We have the power of choice now. Accept that and forget about who did what when. That's for the manufacturers to bicker about. Enjoy your smartphone.
[deleted post]and copy pasting is not a valid reply to every question my friend.
If you would have read the posts before, sure it may have been done before, but they way it is done now is the thing that bothers me.
Nokia by all means could've done an OS all too different to Android, and they seem pretty good at it.
Santanu Dey, 24 Aug 2011FYI:
using Stylus or finger is not a OS feature,,, it is hardware thing... N900 used resistiv... moreI know it's a hardware thing but you have to credit Android, which Belle copied, for the way the pulldown status notification was implemented.
It is without a doubt that the notificatrion system on Belle resembles the one on Android more than it resembles the one on Maemo. Even the toggles on top of the pull down menu was copied from Android.
The point is that Belle copied Android and Nokia fanboys are in denial and tries to point out that it was first used in Maemo. The one on Maemo doesn't even work the way it does on belle. The one on Belle does work the way it does on Android.
Belle= Android wannabe
xsix, 24 Aug 2011would i be able to update my nokia x6 to this software or is it reserved to the new nokia phon... moreSorry to tell you that X6 will not be able to be updated to Belle version..the same with 5800. Only Symbian^3 phone and above will be updated to Belle. X6 is not Symbian^3 phone but Symbian S60 if i'm not mistaken. Cheers!!
Diehard nokiafan, 24 Aug 2011running out of ideas??are you dumb...nokia is going to release worlds first meego phone which ... moreI think what Nokia Sucks (silly name btw lol) is trying to say has a lot of valid point however.
Recent polls and research study have undoubtedly shown that Nokia is without a doubt losing is marketshare to other companies such as HTC, Apple and Samsung.
Your comments based on the most multitasking capable phone on the planet also seems like a rather baseless one as most smartphones nowadays can multitask well, and these are phones that have hit the market already.
One thing I am curious however, was your mention of Meego. Wasn't it mentioned before that the N9 was the last ever Meego device which was going to be made by Nokia before they went down the WP7 path?
I love multicolored icons than single colored round icons. I hope a theme will come to my rescue...
Looks pretty promising, go symbian!
But I'm wondering, what happened with the Wi-Fi sending thing? You know like bluetooth. It was announced a LONG TIME ago, and I haven't seen it yet.
Wow. Why not just get an android device? similar, better, more customizable, not Symbian.
jst updated my Nokia N8 to symb^anna......... its cool tho, but hpe belle will be more social
Nokia Sucks, 24 Aug 2011I just did. You use a stylus to tap on the one on maemo. It's different from the one used by A... moreFYI:
using Stylus or finger is not a OS feature,,, it is hardware thing... N900 used resistive touchscreen so it has to use stylus... most phones use capacitive, so we use fingers...
It is not dependent on the OS.... try to get ur facts correct before commenting next time..
Nokia Sucks, 24 Aug 2011This is hilarious. Nokia copied the pull down notification from Android. Nokia just proved tha... morerunning out of ideas??are you dumb...nokia is going to release worlds first meego phone which has the most powerful multitasking on this planet..and also it is way too different than any other os on this market.....so its better that you get some knowledge before making senseless cmnts..sucker...
Santanu Dey, 24 Aug 2011haha..then Apple is doing the right thing suing Samsung.... Maybe I should try to ring up my c... moreWho cares where you work. What really matters here is that Nokia ran out of ideas and is now trying to make Symbian resemble Android. They are desperate and Android is killing them.
Santanu Dey, 24 Aug 2011Please... Belle isn't out yet.. so we dont know how does it feels..... How can you say, it fee... moreSimply in terms of screenshots really. Sure it may not be enough to go by, in which I hold my silence till then, but its still extremely similar right down to the wifi and connectivity buttons in the notification tray.
I've really personally nothing against Nokia, but coming from a company that singlehandedly took the mobile world by storm years back, I don't see why they have to look so similar.
On that note as well though, there HAVE been videos out on the internet, however credible they may be that demonstrate the Symbian Belle OS. I pull my comments and jurisdiction based on this.
Santanu Dey, 24 Aug 2011Try to dig down and find out Maemo(as one user pointed out)...and so every Smartphone company ... moreI just did. You use a stylus to tap on the one on maemo. It's different from the one used by Android in which you scroll from the status bar down with your finger. The way the notification was done in Belle is more like the one implemented on Android than the way it was implemented on maemo.
