I am still yet to see a multitasking as the one available in Symbian for more than 5 years now.

Looking forward to next week's show though... think time is coming for changing the HTC Desire with something else...

for ex. multi tasking is not for real. it just freezes an app and restarts from where it was stopped. custom ringtones still a dream. u can try it. as they say file size < 1 mb and < 40 sec playback time and so on, but still phone will recognize only few custom ring tones and rest it will put in music collection. still can't download apps from market place to phone through data connection if size is more than 20 MB. eventhough microsoft clams they have resolved this in mango updtae, it is not the case, there is no such optiion to override this limitation. no internet sharing i.e. tethering eventhough carriers supports the same.
moral of story, most of the claim are not true for mango update, and i am saying this by experience. i have HTC mozart running on mango version of OS (without any contract of any carrier).

so may be microsoft should be careful about what they are claiming. and i seriously hope nokia will take care of all this limitations.

ha..ha. I'm sure windows phone are lack of applications even in IT (Information Technologies) people that integrates their work applications in their phones... Andriod already have it... most of them...he..he..he.. I don't know what is the plan of Nokia of releasing incompetent product... Nokia and Symbian is already good. Why windows?

First, because I love the WP7 UI (the only thing that had held me back from buying a Windows phone thus far was the lack of features, although the Mango update has resolved much of that), and second, because Nokia phones have always performed exceptionally well in terms of network reception and in-call volume/clarity.

Dual core is for 720p/1080p Adobe Flash, to play/record 1080p videos and emulators for PS1/N64, ect... Basically any CPU hungry task.

this will be the step up phone for Nokia. its true you can get the same OS even from the other products, for instance HTC. but Nokia makes nice, solid phones. and maybe some unique features will be available for Nokia! so whatever you'll say to this phone, wont change my mind on buying it.

FYI the economy in india is booming to such an extent that they are starting to outsource their business to US soil due to lower labour costs. In addition to the UK / Europe / US mobile markets being completely saturated then the most logical move is hit the markets outside that.

Or they do not have experience n skilled manpower ,absolutely NO . Just do some research plz. Symbian doesnt need dual core (belle works as smooth as lg optimus 2x on 680mhz singlè core n8) n windows doesnt support dual core at all .so how will nokia produce dual core . How come an F1 car with v8 outperform v12 supercars ? Its all about requirment and performance
