Dani, 06 Dec 2008So now il be stuck in choice in which is the best OS phone to get?!?
Sony Ericsson Xperia... moreDani, for your healt I suggest you to wait for N97!
Why? 'cause it's Symbian, what else?
Symbian is good for your heart, kidney, lung and your breast!
a all in one os
thats thhe futuure
Nee, 06 Dec 2008i admire your comment but u in 3rd world countries , S40 r the biggest salers even N73 couldt... moreIt just that I can't stand my nokia 6300 anymore after using my uncles n73!... But it does reap massive sales in the third world countires
This post/news story is HIGHLY MISLEADING. AT&T is *not* ditching Windows Mobile over its entire portfolio; it is planning to ditch Windows Mobile for *AT&T-branded phones*.
OEM-branded phones available on AT&T, such as those from LG, Motorola, Nokia, etc. will continue to have a variety of OSes (although if this happens you might expect AT&T to increase its percentage of Symbian phones even there, but it won't go to 100%). The most affected manufacturer here is likely to be HTC, but they could still sell their phones on the network - just not branded as AT&T...
so does this mean that at&t will release the nokia e71x? or any nokia smartphones?
Now we Know, speed is not the processor, but how fast you can use the feature on the device and how easy. Winmo, doing an SMS is subject to chinese Torture, not so Apple and Symbian. Searching for Aps on the device and using it, again is long and drawn out, not so Apple and Symbian.
That's the name of the game, not processor speed nor camera, nor whatever.
Poor Winmo devices, good form factor, but when u use Winmo, it counts for nothing.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2008they said they hope it would be a alternative to Symbian, giving more choice to the customers ... moreactually they said they would use linux on top of the line mobiles, so guess what, it will later be used in other decives, like we're used to... I have to agre with most of the comments, symbian is great for multimedia and daily use but winmo just keeps the 1st place as the one with more power... I believe that probably linux will be the biggest menace to winmo in some couple of years
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2008I believe HTC was the main reason why WinMo is now is a shape like this. The high end phones t... moreYou might have something there, Millenium and WinMo are both examples of trying to do too much with Windows 98>95>DOS.
Maybe WinMo 7 will be based on this line Vista>XP>Win2k>NT.
btw Symbian market share just dropped below 50% for the first time in many years.
The one's who put them there OSX and RIM.
I believe HTC was the main reason why WinMo is now is a shape like this. The high end phones that HTC put out there couldnt support the conventional speed of WinMo. In human terms thats like installing Windows Millenium on ASUS computers.
zorkor, 06 Dec 2008I am not surprised by AT&T's decision. In this bad state of economy in US, AT&T likes to save ... moreYou're right exactly. I think your theory is trut precisely. Otherwise Symbian is not better than Windows, but money is the main. I think AT&T's decision cann't affect on Microsoft and it's os.
AT&T's choice how can affect on Winmo? Microsoft is more powerful and put WinMo on top, look like all the things are in it's business. Windows is better than any OS I used.
So now il be stuck in choice in which is the best OS phone to get?!?
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 - WinMo
Nokia N97 - Symbian
which one and why?
Im going to do some research into this and see which is the most practical and reliable platform and compatible platform
TD, 05 Dec 2008focus on the title plz, dont say sth not concern with the title. grow uplol this guy, "grow up " , why don't you so what if people have an opinon. well anyway that would be awesome if they went to one os so tech support would be better. Symbain seems less like a business phone and more like a multimedia phone. symbian leave to the big boys like microsoft and blackberry to make nice business phones. Symbian is worse than android in my opinon. Symbain is made more toward just regular phone users not business users. Windows mobile would be the best choice and then android following that with symbian last. sorry symbian but i had to pick one you wouldn't be it.
