windowsrage Droidrage jokes anyone
at least google is open about the fact that their product is still not fully developed
Now a lot people will be happy, cause missing a radio on the WP8 phones was a big disaster according to them.

Thomas91, 11 Dec 2012And android is doing everything symbian did years ago... Android is nothing new and not that '... moreSymbian had gotten most of the things right. Had proper file system management. Proper transfer and networking protocols including VPN. But it was a locked down platform. It was built for a crippled platform ARMv6 and that's why it had such performance issues during the S60v5 era. The Broadcom SOC in the S^3 models took care of that part though.
However, while it was good, it was good only for its time. For example it had no native wifi tethering mechanism (JoikuSpot is a third party hack ;) ). Only Symbian signed apps could be installed on phones (The cert-key self signing people used was another hack). It also had no USB host support(Host support is different from OTG). Also codec support on most Symbian devices was terrible and the hardware decoding wasn't made available to third party players.
Android fixed all these issues. Also Android is pretty modular, you can replace/customise everything from the launcher to the messaging app to the browser. It can do pretty much anything you can want from a handheld device. Symbian was more constrained.
The only thing symbian could do better than Android was call recording. Atleast Nokia phones had a dedicated API for recording phone calls. Android uses a kernel hack for this to work (very ugly). Android doesn't really compete with symbian. It is actually symbian's successor in my opinion as far as the mobile world is concerned. In fact it is wayyy better than the "OS" M$ decided to release.
Osiris, 11 Dec 2012No it's notno its not. Only android s great to lag to confuse n to get easily affected by malwares.
what! no FM radio until now? this is a joke right? even the cheapest phone has FM radio!!
Sukha, 11 Dec 2012Its the best ever mobile based OS to work on!No it's not
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2012Yes, WP8 would achieve a feature parity with Android gingerbread in about 2-3 years. :-P And android is doing everything symbian did years ago... Android is nothing new and not that 'great' as fanboys think it is.
ShAhY, 11 Dec 2012He is not jealous, he is afraid, afraid of the change.ahahaha i guess youre right :-)

sorry for the wrong word
yeah, 11 Dec 2012Dead OS - what a waste of resources. In the world of technology, OSs begin by being 'dead' for a while. They slowly begin to show signs of life, as WP started doing so faster than Android :)
Thephonegeek, 11 Dec 2012Watch out android, windows phone is getting better everyday.very good
