Guys Look at this...
The first 808 vs 1020 comparison is here!
Can anyone tell me what sizes in MB the pictures comes out in different resolutions? After a lot of searching i finally found a store which has 20 Nokia 808 and i don't think they are gonna sell out soon, not in a month. I'm also waiting for Nokia Lumia 1020 however i hate WP8 and Microsoft. Should i wait or go for this phone? By th way it umis available here in 18k brand new here in India.

Here is breif sales report of symbian phones from nokia
Q4-2008- 15 million
Q4-2009- 20 million ( up by 5 million or 33%)
Q4-2010- 28 million ( up by 8 million or 40%)
Q1-2011- 24 million (down by 4 million or 14 %) this was the quarter of begining of 'Elop's effect'
Q4-2011- 18 million at least.
So anyone with little mathematical knowledge calculate weather symbian sales was declining or increasing, yes there was a downward slope but totally due to Elop's effect.
All above data is not made by me at home. These are nokia's official sales report.
Have any questions or doubt just check out the link below...

You cannot compare lumia 520 Hardware with Nokia 500, Nokia 500 has a cheaper Hardware and still costs over 100 euros. Also, in 2009 Nokia started to decline quite fast abd at the end of 2010, Android overtook Symbian already. While Symbian sales were good and Nokia was still the leader of smartphones sales, android took grownd to easy and to quick, making Symbian sales droping almost 50% in just one year, maybe even more... So, yes, Nokia had Problems. Big time, they could not compete with cheap Chinese crapp comming like an army of 'pick me'. They had Problems since 2008 but they were to cocky to do something about it. Ios was a threat and android was a Baby threat. Nokia never tought to do something greater with Symbian so the threat to remain in a babz stage... And when they did it, was sooo LATE, that the world could be reinvented in that time. Even MeeGo came to late. Meego should be released in 2009. And keept. Now we would have had Symbian and Meego rulling the market...

I only plaied with it, in stores or from friends but never had one to crack it:)). So, in this matter i cannot help you:(...
when can we expect further update to nokia 808!
its an awesome handset, atleast give the option of resizing video while watching like in symbian anna, editable equalizer and album art like in nokia 5233 and atleast a basic video editor which can cut and merge videos and changes background music just like nokia 5233 and other in the same series of s60v3.
i believe 808 is the most powerful handset among all the symbian handsets.
if iam right why the options are not given which were there in a basic phone like 5233,5230,5800,c6-00 and other s60v3 phones.
am i correct?

And i was quite satisfied with its performance but lack of autofl focus was the biggest draw back. I couldn't tak pic of documents.
Rizwan Iqbal, 21 Jul 2013at release time n8 was about 42k and 920 was about 62k. :pWhatever the price in your country, just calculate the difference in price... even with no marketing symbian can outclass wp lumias if nokia didn't put crappy hardware on symbian smartphones. In last 4 years nokia only releases two symbian phones with auto focus camera, first one is nokia n8 in 2010 then nokia 808 in feb 2012. They released their business series flagship without auto focus camera.No one likes there iinferior edof cams on a smartphone costing $500. This is total flop marketing strategy. After all that bad marketing , sales of symbian phones managed to go up and up, ofcoure there was a little decline in market share due to boom in sales of droids and iphones. By the way im hovering around the web for online purchase of nokia 808 (last nokia phone)....sadly... out of stock on all promising online stores...

And nokia n8 here in Pak cost 33k and lumia 920 cost around 55k :D i have enjoyed both. Lumia 920 and n8. Battery backup was much impressive in n8. And other features luke hdmi,usb otg basically missing in windows phone8. Anyhow symbian is good and cheap operating system. 1.3 ghz with 512 ram can handle 1080p videos and 38.4 mb pics easily, which my hp mini 311 can't handle smoothly..

Carol, 20 Jul 2013Yeah, but i think the things are much more complicated. Nokia had all it's factories in Europe... moreWho told u symbian is expensive. Even with downgrading the manufacturing quality , cheapest lumia running wp8 is lumia 520 which costs 20 % more than nokia 500 ( symbian running smartphone) with less benefit per lumia 520. Nokia is fooling people by saying symbian is not manageable. Every one knows how strict hardwares are on wp8 powered lumias. Lets compare flagship nokia lumia 920 vs nokia n8, lumia 920 is more than 20% expensive than nokia n8. For eg in india n8 's launch price was rupee 32k and for lumia 920 it was 38k. How lumias are cheaper to manufacture as they need bigger cpus, more rams, bigger batteries and much bigger overall profile. Who says nokia was in trouble with symbian, just check the nokia profit and sells report of 2010. If nokia was in trouble with highest smartphone market share (2010) then what about current position ( not even in top five).......

The first one was 6600 and somehow symbian is easiest operating system.and belle update make it more simple,smooth and durable. But i don't know what's wrong with nokia top management. Even the new way if QT based software make it more easy for developers to develop good applications. But R.I.P symbian...

If there is problem on symbian then how video calling on fring works.
