Samsung is doing a good job in lower-middle range. Google chose HTC for their own phone. So, I think they have some or other advantage over others.

This phone is not going to be released even then.

You're right about Android being the best, but seriously, a Galaxy S is nowhere close the the iPhone 4. Check out HTC EVO 4G. The world's first phone to ever defeat the iPhone. That too iPHONE 4. And Android based smartphones are the best in the market, iOS is based on it as well. You are absolutely right.

My Galaxy 3 (Android) has 5.1 surround sound, DNSe, Touchwiz 3.0, 667 MHz processor, 3D gallery, pre-loaded document editor, threaded SMS etc. You should put your hands on an Android before writing about it.

That was 3 months back. Now I am a proud owner of Galaxy 3. Everyone in my office, friends etc checks this out with lot of curiosity. I think even Nokia C6 is sold below 10K, there will be none left to purchase it in this current trend.

Android phone from Samsung use touchwiz 3, Androids from Sony use Timescape UI, Androids from Moto use MOTOBLUR UI.
Who said android phones are lesser innovative?
LOL! You are talking about Google!!! The company that revolutionized the internet. The company that develops a lot and lot of open and new technologies. With Android 2.2 being the latest version, Android is growing many times faster than Symbian. Ever checked why "Symbian Guru" is closed?
Who said Android hardware is not new?
What is the speed of chip inside C6? Have you ever get a chance to compare it with cheapest android phones like Samsung Spica or Galaxy3? The RAM is also speced higher. Ever heard of Galaxy S? The only phone you can compare to iPhone 4? Android mostly packs a multi-touch capacitive screen. Most important, Android phones will be release while they are still fresh not like symbians which are released only after they become outdated.
I've been waiting for it. It's not available in india yet. Nokiaindia confirmed it's release in india in the mid of OCT on it's twitter page. Lookin forward to it. Come on October..come one..
Sank, 13 Sep 2010CaN this Nokia C6 could be used for VOIP calling and can you please tell me which other phones... moreany fone which supports grps can make VOIP calls. but nokia c6 is a unique fone. you can make free voice calls(voip-voice over internet protocol) and video calls with c6 using fring. download fring here www.fring.com
This c6 looks a lot different:
Think theres a mixup???
Nokia has officially launched Nokia C6-01.
it is way BETTER than this version.
Hiii Every 1 .. dis cell is available in navi mumbai for rs.13,200 but without warranty & bill..
Nokia has lost one of its biggest supporters and loyal followers in me. I kept waiting for the C6 to release for over four months now, and every month the launch gets delayed even more. Nokia Inda @ twitter says it will be launched in October. Nokia concept store in ambience, gurgaon says it might be december. Now reviews coming in say its bad, a "dabba" phone, lagging Ui, old symbian. I bought a samsung galaxy 3, and by jove does it fly!! and its cheaper than the bulky c6, with much much more advanced features. It's entertainment meet style meet office.
Very badly played nokia, very badly played. I had been using nokia phones exclusively for the last EIGHT years, five phones in total. And this is my first purchase out of the nokia stable, and I was a little saddened in breaking my association with nokia, but now with the galaxy 3, I am actually happy I made the shift.
Bro plz plz plz tell me why android devices giv thrice as much fps output as symbian devices in the same range if they're of lame ????
The only thing I dislike is the battery back up, even though its rated 1200mAh :(
Android vs Symbian
The Symbian OS(operating system) has been around for years with Symbian v9 being launched in 2005. That was around the same time that Android was acquired by Google, only to be announced some time in 2007 and released on the G1 in 2008. Iím going to cut to chase here, Android is over-hyped and that is probably itís greatest weakness.
The whole idea of these mobile phone operating systems like Windows Mobile, Symbian and Android, made by software companies, is to accelerate time to market and reduce development costs. Silicon makers also tailor their chips for these OSs based on their capabilities/features, so itís easier for phone manufacturers to develop devices with these popular OSs.
Now the deal with Android is that thereís a lot of hype surrounding it. Hype that promotes laziness on the part of phone makers to a point where itís okay to just slap the stock OS as it is, untouched. When looking at the line of Android devices, you canít help but notice that they are extremely similar. Thatís because of this hype factor; people are happy enough with a device just because it has Android because Android is Ďcoolí. On the other hand, HTC does try to put a lot more effort on their Android devices with their Sense UI, but thatís only HTC. The hype-effect goes beyond just the user interface ó hardware-wise Android devices havenít offered anything new. Many people expected the Nexus One would be a revolutionary device. It has powerful hardware andÖ thatís about it.
For Symbian, itís a different story. Manufacturers are forced to come up with not only innovative software, but innovative hardware as well to compliment it. When you think about it, almost all Symbian devices have custom interfaces. Samsung has the clever Touch Wiz UI which is spreading to other platforms, the Sony Ericsson phones, the Satio and the Vivaz have custom UIs with the Vivaz taking advantage of the accelerometer with itís animated wallpapers. Nokia also has the panel of widgets for its user interface on the n97 devices.
When it comes to innovative hardware, the S60v3 Samsung i8510 was the first to market with an 8MP camera and the S60v5 Satio was the first with a 12MP and the s60v5 i8910 was the first touch screen phone with an AMOLED display just to name a few. There are also many custom applications that manufactures build in to their Symbian devices so that they are better and different. Take the Omnia HD for instance. It has a custom search feature, music player, communities social app, podcasting app, custom handwriting recognition, custom camera interface, thorough codec support, custom media gallery, business card reader, Samsung LBS navigation and integrated DSNe 2.0 technology for better audio just to name a few. Itís packed right out of the box. When it comes to features, Symbian devices set the standard; they paves the way for other platforms to follow.
So, what did Android bring to the table for mobile devices? Nothing. Itís just another mobile operating system but with the backing of one the biggest and most creative companies around, Google. This could be the reason why people get excited; when Google is behind something, they usually do it very well. Unfortunately, thereís a heavy reliance on stock Android to do everything, making the product makers relax on creativity and focus on just releasing that ĎAndroid deviceí.
