It seems to be demise of nokia. They acted smart and sold their fones with huge profits. They fooled people. But the time has changed. Samsung gave us value for money and a tough compi to Nokia. Had Nokia given us the right hardware confi, better processing speed and power, samsung's trial of beating nokia would have been a distant dream. Nokia has done another mistake by adopting windows. Lets see if windows can do any wonder like android did to this mobi world.
we must all admit that symbian will eventually a part of the history as nokia will support it till 2016 only or maybe earlier who knows, but it will not stop me from buying 808.

Anonymous, 24 May 2012...er, probably why i stated full res lol.I agree: ergo, "What you're talking about are the 10-18Mb files which are the full resolution 34, 38MP."
Merely stating the fact that:
a.) 10-18Mb files = 34, 38MP resolutions (Full Resolution);
b.) 1-2Mb files = 3, 5, 8MP resolutions (PureView).
When you really have to send it, like to beat a deadline or something of similar situation, you can always compress+split the photo into 2MB pieces as rar/zip archive then email those as attachments.
Or find a PC.
noooooooo!! symbian don't diiiiiiiieee!
this is a very sad day.
one minute in respect...

What you're talking about are the 10-18Mb files which are the full resolution 34, 38MP. That would be best served transferred to a USB Flash Drive then onto a PC.
I hope this isnt true.....
But if it is... I would say nokia just activated their selfdestruct system
pure nokia stupidity.....
Anon, 24 May 2012As Nekko has already stated, a good product doesn't need updates to perform well. ...and how many times a day do you need to battery pull your symbian? I know my last one (the nokia n8 running belle), was at least twice a week on avg. I would say this performance is poor lol. Look at the stats, it's the most unstable OS for smartphones on the market ;o)

I was a nokia fan back in the day but was hugely disappointed that they let symbian die by sipmly not updating it or keeping up with other OS's seeing as they were innovative market leader. This is why the 808 will not succeed and as for nokia joining up with WP...well this is another struggling OS and in my opinion MS have F'd it up from the start.
Another rumor launched by apple or apple fans, to destroy nokia market sharing because they are to scared of the 808 and they should be...

Windows Phone is superior to anything right now in ... moreWhen Windows Phone 7.5 has a model with a hardware keyboard, and changes a few of it's privacy habits (why am I forced to put all my calendar/contact details online?), I'd buy one in a snap.
As Nekko has already stated, a good product doesn't need updates to perform well.
I don't think so. They have made the award winning phone the 808 pure view on symbian, does it sound normal that they are just dismising symbian? They are playing with our minds... they will eat all of the other OS around...
A question for you android fanboys - will your 6 month old galaxy S2, Exhibit, Skyrocket , Razor Max, Sensation XL/XE etc ever see Jelly Bean ??? No, so STFU

Here's some statement to clarify my point
* Do you need a major firmware update for your HDTV? NO
* Do you need a major firmware update for your Gaming Console? NO
* Do you need a major firmware update for your Digital camera? NO
As long as they work properly then we wont need a major firmware update.
You don't buy phones just for their firmware update you know.. You buy phones for the functions. You don't buy phones just to swipe their screens with their fancy ooh aah all day long (maybe some fandroids do) *chuckles*
