Widget says 12:23 while the clock on the status bar says 12:18. LOL


I hope Nokia will allow Android apps compatibility/emulation and I hope they come up with a Siri equivalent.

i agree to people who prefer Android. . .i was using nokia or symbain 5th and 6th edition and Symbian Anna lately and they were really lacking of those rich features and smooths effects and transitions, android never seem disappoint me at every aspect of its features and functionality. i came from nokia C7 and nokia N8 and now to galaxy ACe and to galaxy S II

Personality, smoothness, purpose...
If only koreans could understand what a phone must be.
You do not need extensive tech talk to be convince that you can live with that device.
Still what is the point of that android like double clock that can not get along ? And why, oh why make the same mistake the marketing picture of the G1 did: 12:18 on the status bar, 12:23 on the main screen... Do you think Apple would let that happen ?

So, Nokia marketing and software department should tied an agreement with top software company such as Gameloft, EA, and etc so that more apps is build for Nokia phones.

Alternatively, find the way to run Android apps in some kind of emulator. I think there is something out there in beta which would likely benefit from a bit of support to move project along faster.

> In reply to [deleted post]Nothing special about Samsung's super amoled. Its just a label that Samsung has the right to use. In fact any amoled can be called super amoled but Samsung will sue you for using the word 'super. the super amoled are an eye sore, cbd much more pleasing to look at.

Nokia needs to persuade various service providers to make apps for Symbian. Most now do iOS and Android. Then some include BB. Service providers do apps not for the sake of doing an app and making money of selling it, but to grow or facilitate their service biz with apps being free.

I am talking about real apps. Where app is needed. Not those which are essentially a bookmark.

One more blunder in the making - missing flash for the camera.

Who's imitating Android? All the things you see on Belle were on older Maemo distro's... Android stole it all
