I still have my N8, E5 and E6. For me Nokia E5's still the best multitasking phone and best physical qwerty keyboard for me. 2nd best Camera Phone for N8 and 2nd Best Physical Qwerty Keyboard running on belle ref. for E6.

As long as Android doesn't have pure multitasking (like Symbian did) it's considered crap in my eyes. Using Xperia atm but going back to Symbian with next phone. I have had enough of this joke called Android.

I had the Nokia C6, it might have not had the best apps and features but it was a great phone for chatting on WhatsApp, the qwerty keyboard had keypads as big as the one on a PC keyboard but they made chatting so much fun. I am now using the Samsung Galaxy S4, even though it is all new and fresh, I still love what Nokia did on the C6 Keyboard

my first smartphone was nokia XP 5800. It was best smartphone in that era.
then i get N8 it was best camera smartphone in that time.
when nokia stopped their symbian phone(last was PW 808)
Then i swithed to android samsung phone S2 and now i am using NOTE 2.
NOKIA has 65% market share in india till 2010.
but then samsung emerge as no. 1 in india.
i am proud of both makers on having their best phones in my hands.

I have so far used only Nokia Symbian phones like Nokia 6600, N70, N73, N95-8gb, E63, 5800 xpress music, E5, C5, N8 and 808-41mp PureView (My present phone) These were all great phones of their time!
The lion will be the King of the forest when it is alive. But Ants will eat it when it dies! Same goes with present Nokia! Going to buy Note 3 soon!

I strongly disagree with the things mentioned in the article. Nokia 5800xm was quite a success at least in India. I still own it and love the sound it produces.

Fall of Symbian and rise of Ios and Android.

Although I'm an Android and Nokia Windows fan, those early phones were truly ugly. I'm not into iPhones, but the iPhone design looked so much more elegant than whatever Samsung or Nokia were producing.
