wilkotick, 23 May 2012Why does everyone harp on about dualcore technology in phones, Nokia as a multi national compa... moreI've had a lot of Symbians and just always found they were always near 2 years behind what the competition were doing with processor and ram and it spoiled the phone if you really want to use it as a Smartphone, i mean new ones are better but Symbian is still a bit rubbish as a Smartphone because of phone performance and complete lack of Apps.
NobleScarlet, 23 May 20125 years from now, we will all be crying because of no more original battery replacements avail... moreI am not saying dont buy,why is this news(rumour) coming now?..at launch..think twice..I have waiting for this.we have to wait and see if they comment the ruour(news).I have already ordered one with a carrier and no chance in cancelling and will maybe get next week.Had been moore fun if I had the feeling they support it 100%
MdN, 23 May 2012Exactly. Symbian is good as it is, and 5 years from now it will still be a decent phone. I don... more5 years from now, we will all be crying because of no more original battery replacements available for this.
Why? Because Nokia is the only mobile phone company I know that manufactures very durable phones. I had the n73 since the year it was released, and it is still alive and kicking (though I want to cry for this because of no more original battery replacement).
Also with the cancellation of "Symbian Carla", I hope its cancellation will be because the next update will be "Nokia Carla", as it looks like according to the rumors that the future updates will be more of a combination of Symbian+Qt+Meego. Surely you can't call it "QtSymbianMeego Carla". Just hopeful wishing! :)
Yup., The Nokia Pureview 808 is the LAST symbian device flagship nokia gonna make.
So make sure u've got one :-) its the only and last phone which gonna last a full day with a single charge hhhhahahaaaa
And be sure that its camera will be compared with all the upcoming 5yrs phones. it will be the (standard) which all companies will compare their mobile camera's with ;)
camera is magical but nokia should check the hardware properly so that there shouldnt be pullbacks like n8 and others
snow_speeder, 23 May 2012Is this the end of symbian? can someone make me understand why there are news (rumors) that no... moreelop is going to finish symbian ! Fp1 and fp2 r last updates ! Goodbye nokia !
Sea-Breeze, 23 May 2012even if they cancelled carla or whatever the name ... the phone fulfills my needs with its cur... moreExactly. Symbian is good as it is, and 5 years from now it will still be a decent phone. I don't see Symbian users crying for updates and unlocked bootloaders like Android users do all the time.
Is this the end of symbian? can someone make me understand why there are news (rumors) that nokia has canceled all plans for Carla or Donna? will Symbian ever support HD (720p) screens? what is the future of Symbian? where is it going and what are we expecting as consumers? are we waiting for Carla and Donna? there's so much news on lumia, so much support but on Symbian? is it dying? i love the 808 pure view, and for sure il buy it.. but what is Nokia doing with Symbian?
even if they cancelled carla or whatever the name ... the phone fulfills my needs with its current software.., so am getting it
When u buy a phone think of what it gives u at the current time not with future updates.
end of statement !
after the death of symbian i wish that nokia puts android os in this phone.
and now they cancelled the nokia carla and said that the last symbian update is nokia belle fp2
i was going to wait and buy this phone but now what should i do , i think its time to go to another brand since nokia doesnt care anymore about us
Gitty, 23 May 2012nokia carla and donna r cancelled by elop n others ! N8 will get lite versiön of FP1 and ... morewhat a perfect timing,of course this can compete against Wp,not good at all..no moore Nokia phone and definately never ever a Wp phone.
asahi, 23 May 2012I also really don't understand what it takes nokia so long to release the phone in the market.... morei order my 808 here and they say its available in early june,in finland
nokia carla and donna r cancelled by elop n others ! N8 will get lite versiön of FP1 and FP2 ! Last updates ! So itz and end of symbian ! Goodbye !
i have been using symbian now since 2003 and have always found the top camera phone using symbian but symbian is just behind the times now and as much as the camera on the pureview would be the best camera on a phone out there i have decided to sacrafice the camera and have gone for the samsung gallaxy s3
