Actually the best Symbian S60v5 (touch screen) device did not come from Nokia but from Samsung, the Omnia HD I8910.

Yes even better than n97 since it featured a 3.7" AMOLED screen and vastly better 600MHz single core CPU and 256MB ram.

bye symbian OS. Nokia was, will and always number one here in the phil. From 3650,n70,n71 ,c5,x6,n8 to lumia proud to say that u truly are c0nnecting people. Symbian was the most popular os here where in fact, locals created community website exclusive for symbian user. As i heard this news, i switched directly to my 7yrs old n70 which is still damn in very good condition and currently writing this comment. King of multitasking,quality,service and OS. Symbian rocks

I'm still using Symbian Belle OS in my E6. People should know that Symbian is a great Operating System.
And for me, It's not so easy deciding between the Nokia 808 Pure View and the Lumia 920, because Nokia has always given us a great standar of quality with Symbian. And It's so likely that I'll get the 808 Pureview.
I'm really satisfied with my E6.
I want the people and specially Nokia know this: I'm happy with the Symbian Operating System.
I just want to say: Thank You Nokia for your great and beautiful phones. Whatever You decide, no matter which Operating System you'll use and develop, We'll be right there with You Nokia. I'm a Nokia Fan and I have planned to buy my new Nokia phone soon.
But,please, don't forget to include the great features You always had in your Symbian handsets.

Symbian powered my first 5-6 smart phones starting with the legendary 6120.

I have been moved on from Nokia for 5 years now but am ever thankful to symbian.

Nokia is part of Microsoft or ELop still works in MS ? Why Nokia don't produce phones with MeeGo, Android ? Contract ? Probably exclude only Android, so why Nokia dont have any alternative ? HTC dont have problems with make phones with Android and WP. Samsung dont have problems with makes phones with WP, Android, Bada...So Nokia is now part of MS ?

Hello my dear Symbian lovers. Hallo my experienced ones in mobile smart technology, i salute you!

Is a sad day for us, but we all knew it will come. We all knew that the mighty 808 will be the last one dedicated to the masters of Symbian.

I want to say that The King is not dead. Will leave through our phones (not to forget that will be supported till 2016 if not even further:P). So, we won't see any new Symbian device. But we will see it growing old and by then will be a nice memory. So stick with your legends in your pockets. Nowadays, systems come and go but Symbian will live forever.

We know what Symbian is, we know who complained about it, we know who is cheap in business and who aren't trend sellouts. Symbian is a culture, it is everywhere and was everywhere way before this kidroids were even born. And this cannot be taken away.

Proud owner of 7650, 3650, 6630, 7610, n70, 5230, c5, n8 never died on me. Never lagged on me. And the most reliable smartphones i ever hold. 808 is my next. So it is not dead YET:P
