i hope Elop will be fired soon so that Symbian and possibly even MeeGo, can be revitalized and future software support will be continued.
Everybody knows that Symbian, MeeGo, & Meltemi are intentionally ditched by Nokia's own CEO Elop in favour of MS's WP. But MeeGo and Symbian are the best Nokia's Home grown OSes.
There are nothing wrong with MeeGo and Symbian; in fact, the lattest Symbian is very capable OS. Symbian can do anything what other OSes can do and cannot do (File Transfer, External card Slot, Advance Multi Tasking, Best Battery Life of all, USB OTG/HDMI/USSD/NFC Support, Capable of acoomodating 41MP Monster Camera, FM Radio, FM Transmitter, Effecient Power Management, & many othres things...)
Phones like N9 & 808PV which have excellent design, features, and performance are GOLD and DIAMOND. They are MASTERPIECES, a fruit of research, technology, and Hard Work. These phones doesn't need help from me, you, Elop, or anybody else(or even from it's own maker - Nokia).
The truth will speak for itself. Gold and Diamond shines !! So do 808PV and N9.
Never had user experience with this phone, but so far what stands out for me is the camera - a Sony Xperia S beating camera, and I haven't tried the OS either, but that sounds interesting.... And one thing I'll say about Nokia, they're original.

Anonymous, 23 Aug 2012It has 41MP camera. What's the 38?38MP is the maximum resolution pictures you can take. Why? The senso is round, and pictures are rectangular. If you could take round pictures you could get the full 41 MP(lol, dont think so but the first part is true).
though its expendable memory ia upto 32GB, can it supports 64GB? have anybody tried 64GB?
