It has sum kind of random floating display in gallery instead of the earlier ordered one. Its beautiful but slightly problematic to use as the pics move randomely anywhere. But still m glad dat at least apple wudnt b able to sue it :)

If some one likes a particular brand, no harm. let it be their choice.

Hope sammy crushes apple. But dude u shud b careful abt ventilating ur anger in ur posts. That one swear word cud get ur post deleted. Bst of luck :)

> In reply to somnath99 @ 2012-03-26 12:05 from uvhs - click to readOk dude luk here.... First of all ur partially right abt sgs2 copying apple. According to the source u mentioned it says that the photo gallery of sgs2 works the way dat apple's does (swipe n scroll) which is why it was banned. But since the question btw us ws abt design,My post stands n no apologies to u.
Second i never said that samsung or android is perfect. I just say that currently nokia is falling behind the competetion in terms of performance n value-for-money smartphones.
Third. Just point out one instance where i havnt been fair or judicious. If ur refering to the post sayin dat nokia fans dont hav the sense to know which product is bttr then know dat it was a counter to ur post saying it was a shame dat ppl like me were shifting to sammy just for android without caring abt brand image.
Fourth, the rest of ur last post is meaningless.

Truth:
the ban on sale in europe (though not ENTIRE EUROPE), was applicable for SGS2 and ACE.
Reason:
Apple has some F**king patent on 'the Way Gallery app is working" . honestly, i never heard that kind of patent. para in {} is the copy from the source. Samsung did few modifications to the app, dont exactly now what they are to get out of that patent.

{The injunction was granted because the court feels the way you swipe and scroll through photos infringes one of Apple's patents, numbered EP2058868}

Where Applicable:
for the countries which Recognize the patent ( only country we know is DUTCH, and probably germany (not sure on this though).

The Kicker:
The ban is applicable only for 7 WEEKS from the date of judgement i.e 21 AUG 2011. i reckon we all know when it has completed.

Now if Somnath is not aware, we cant help that, can we?
The description of the patent irritated me more than somnath

Samsung is the no. 1 smartphone brand in India.
Not the no. 1 phone brand.
Nokia still leads.
It is the no. 1 cell phone brand in India.
Last year Nokia also recognises as the Most trusted brand in India, where's samsung place is 55th.

Bcoz u don't have the real answer.
Obviously, it's a open forum. You can discuss anything. But don't behave like a fandroid guy. U can tell pros and cons of Nokia.
U also argue with no judiciously way. Just supporting Android.
I agree that Android is a good platform bcoz i havd SE XPERIA NEO V. It also has it's own pros and cons.
But don't claim that Nokia is dead.
Stupid comments like these start fighting.

As for s2 being banned i hav to check the source u mentioned or w8 for sum1 (maybe blueglue) to confirm ur information. Then if ur right. Then my apologies to u for posting untrue information. If nt then my post stands.

Just try to get the real facts. Don't always behave like a fandroid guy.
And the features phone started by some fandroid guy talking about Meltemi,QT. I just commented on him. If u don't like it, leave it.

Samsung Galaxy s2 already banned in Europe. Check it in cnet news.
And the design is almost same like Iphone 4s. If ur eyes are active, then u can judgf urself.

You mention something about a Meltemi linux which shows you are a geek... yet you don't know about Moore's law when you mention "They can't keep increasing the no of cpu cores and clock rates forever.". Don't you know they have been increasing exponentially since the 70's? Sorry, I think over 90 percent of the population don't know or care about Meltemi linux.

Why Meego failed miserably? lot of info available, DIY to get the facts.

A device is not potent by itself, there is a lot of HARDWORK done by an enthusiastic developer behind the porting.

Please appreciate the efforts rather than complaining whats not working. If i were you, i'd have elaborated whats working on the ported o/s. btw, I dont expect N9 to be compatible for ICS, bcoz its not built for ICS anyway.

Dont include feature phones when the conversation is about Smartphones. i reckon you know the difference.

Common. All of us know that Nokia is the one of the reliable phone maker. And ur N95 is a smartphone, so it is slow. And the hardwares are too old for a smartphone and also the S60 on that time is crap.
Just think at that time u get a smartphone, while others company don't know what smartphone is.
Doer the software in ur D40 is very fast like S30. I am sure it will not.

This is an open forum nt nokia forum, it only has articles of nokia which does NOT make it the exclusive property of nokia users. Just bcuz u havnt got anything to back us words with doesnt mean we should take the cue n leave this page. U dont wanna discuss things judiciously then dont bother posting ur comments. N no one literaly hates nokia save a few. We all r discussing the pros n cons. U give me a nokia phone bttr than those of other brands at a reasonable price n i will buy it.

Note: only in HTML5 test. I am not arguing with other features.
Check it in youtube.
