it's just a rumor. Recently Microsoft give to Nokia 250 milions euros to keep the developement of Nokia OS alive and to update Asha series to Maeltemi OS that is based on Linux. I read the source and I think that guy is just a fool. He doesn't know the package content of Nokia 808. Wait for oficial reactions. I think he will be fired
Chill guys. Nokia did not put Belle OS in the Pureview 808 for nothing. Though there would be no more major updates (who the hell knows of this), Belle will still be fully supported. They will still release new symbian devices. So chill the eff out. :)
If he stated that, how does Nokia want people to buy the really expensive (649EUR) 808 PureView?
I will not get a WP unless they give the code for developers to make more apps (missing Sygic and a nice call blocker, for example).
what the... who is that elop? is he an ET... he's dragging nokia down. he already killed 2 great OSes. he doesn't seemed to understand what the people wants,... shame on him!
After owning the USELESS N95-1 (i call it "The brick") for so many years, I hate Jokia. It could not play simple MP3 from SD card without corrupting it. Useless Symbian OS. My friends who have N8 complain of SAME PROBLEM so many years later. On Jokia propoganda websites there are still complaint threads about how N8 can not manage simple MP3. I predict bankruptcy 4 Jokia in 2013.
After this what? Change Nokia HQ from Espoo to Redmond. BTW thanks Elop, after you killed Macromedia, you kill Nokia. After this which company? Foxconn? Tata?
Tanku Mr.Elop i hope that ur happy with Nokia closing all its branches all over the world and just sit inside its home. wen people all over the world wants Nokia to be No.1 with symbian, ur telling cumon guys its the end of Nokia.

"It puts all your phone setti... moreFrom what I've read, one of the first things it needs you to do is to sign-in (or create) a live account, so it can sync everything to it. And it won't let you bypass that - you can't use the phone without having an account attached. No thanks.
I think you're right - Android requires you to give it a Google account, however you have control over where you want your contacts and data stored. Very simple to make an account and not put anything on it.
It's a bit sad, but I think I'm going to have to go crawling back to Android..
With the Dell Venue Pro - I just had a look, I can't see it on my countries Dell site, or the US Dell site. Wherever you live, you're lucky. Amazon won't ship electronics here, Overstock doesn't have it and Newegg won't ship it over here.

A slice of ice creamsandwich a day keeps the symbian and Microsoft away. lol..
Symbian is a mature mobile OS.
But its UI is outdated.
I wish wp7 fluid & awesome UI can be combined with symbian mature functionality.
