That might be a bit mean ,the e7 is a very sexy slim device and will probably end up buying one when it comes down in price..The c6-01 and c7 are out i do need button input,ive tried numerous touchscreen devices and CANNOT get on with them especially as your walking along in a crowd etc,its all nice inside sat down with full concentration but out in real world i am finished with pure touchscreens.
The next item i am keeping an eye on with e7 c6 and n8 is battery,it may well do 50hrs music and big talktimes but you get web browsing and you will get 4-5 hrs i reckon,,time will tell..I also have never owned an Apple product in my life,never an i-pod ,nothing,cant stand the way they control you it reminds me of three network 2003-2005 with their walled garden web browsing,,i buy sim free devices (usually second hand) and do what i want with then with NO bloatware from companys and updates almost immedeatly..Sometimes i am proud of preaching what say..

So i wait again to see what happens next but bothered that symbian^3 and ^4 will only be touchscreen and the days of n95 and n86 devices dont work with the new symbian,,oohhh a updated n95 with 2010 spec,lovely.

I would rather just have one device that can handle calls, emails and any other forms of messaging. Being able to surf the net is also nice.
I haven't used a netbook, so I'm not sure of its value if I have a smartphone and a laptop already. If I have to do some heavy doc editing, I would pull out my laptop. For checking email, messaging and calls, I have my smartphone.
wELL what abount memory ,its internal slow rubbish,buisness means speed and reliabilty for prtoductivity,i am with person who says get a netbook and say an e52 to get online with.
I own a 5800 and this E7 has bigger screen than 5800, so demands more power, and bigger processor, that demands more power too, but E7 has smaller battery than my 5800 (1200 x 1320 mAH). That is a receipt too tragedy, E7 user probably will charge E7 every six hours.
ShameOnNokia, 01 Oct 2010If you're saying that the mobile photo editor isn't meant to be a photoshop replacement, then ... moredo you know that symbian had photo editor long time ago?n73 4 yrs ago had it by default i know that because i used it!!when symbiam came it was supported by nokia alone and that didn't stop it from becoming the most popular and stable smartphone os!!samsung and SE are like betrayers!!when symbiam was on the rise they ran in just to grab some profit and when the going get tough they dropped off!!they can go to hell together with you!!and believe it or not neither symbian nor nokia will die you'll die first i already told you that and from hell alongside with SE and samsung you'll see symbiam blossom again!!cheers!!
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2010I see that you Nokia fans are becoming desperate as you move to personal attacks and call thos... moreya you're right we don't like those who come here and bash nokia and symbian just because they want to do so!!you've got to be outright stupid or insane to do that kind of bashing without any backups!!i hate the ios so i don't have to bash it i just ignore it and same thing with android phones!!so anyone who comes here just to talk nonsence will definitely get his share!!you don't like it?go in peace!!it's as simple as A B C!!
ShameOnNokia, 02 Oct 2010LOL if you've read any of my post i only reference to the Galaxy S because that's my current d... moreone thing i'll tell you for sure symbian migth die but you'll die first so you won't live to see it die why worry!!
Yes I've read the lengthy post. I am currently using two phones, E71 and Acer Android (with 2.1). The first few weeks with Android, I felt like I can do just about anything, just about install zillion apps. But once initial rush faded, I realized all I ever need in a phone is being able to get emails and be able to write messages. And by another week, I realized having to recharge Android twice a day is nusciance. I also realized I don't need razzle-n-dazzle HTML email view, html view is nice to have but I can live with text view. Even after getting explosed to Android, iPhone's way of net connectivity, I still kept liking nokia's (cumbersome to some) way of connecting to net (like you can force some app to use wifi, some to use cellular net, and two apps can simultaneoulsy use wifi and cellular net). Well my fingers are crossed for new Symbain ^ 3 that Nokia has kept its legacy style intact. This is what makes it different from other OSes. Yes Nokia should compete with other OSes but I just wanted to all of you to know that there are still some people who likes Nokia's way of doing things.
ShameOnNokia, 02 Oct 2010LOL I've already made several comments about the N8 a while back. Once the phone is released w... moreCome on sh..head... not long ago you were playing Snake on 3310, or Tetris on Zx Spectrum and now is all about screen resolution, 600 mhz or 1 ghz.... you're funny. Galaxy S, N8, Iphone4... avarage user can't even turn one on or don't give a shit about what processor is using... THEY USE IT FOR STUPIT FARTING APPS or something like that :)
Its not awesome phone u guys... Forget the resolution thingy mann... Its loaded with tons of features.... Its an innovation product from Nokia.. Cheers to the Nokia team..:)
with secondary camera? with wifi? this is very good, we can use our free Fring video calling feature
What will happen if the flex develops a problem shortly after purchase?
ShameOnNokia, 02 Oct 2010Actually I can admit some things symbian has done right, they made it alot easier to tether da... moreYou do have a good point about the fact that the hardware cannot be just good enough. Apps will surely become more hardware intensive over time as developers build more sophisticated apps to compete with other apps. I think it's just human nature to want a device that is not only functional, but cool also. That will drive apps to be more hardware intensive. It's hard to know what exactly what apps will be like months or years later. Most likely, it they will use more hardware resources than apps now. If the hardware is just good enough now, it may not be good enough in a year.
Very few will edit office documents on their phone because today the small Netbooks are so much better. My Samsung N210 has a betterylife that is much, very very much, better than on any phone.
N8 will be useless for office editing because the onscreen qwerty-keyboard covers most of the screens already few pixels 360 x 640.
hayato, 02 Oct 2010I will credit your comments if it were from a first hand experience. But since e7 is not even ... more"symbian can do even more"?, Symbian can not even handle a resolution greater than 360 x 640 pixels and on a 4 inces screen that low resolution is definetly ugly, so how can less be more if not only in the blind eyes of a Nokia-fan or Nokia-employee?
hayato, 02 Oct 2010I will credit your comments if it were from a first hand experience. But since e7 is not even ... moreHTC Desire Z is a far better choice than E7. HTC Desire Z is the same as G2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn5UKl5z0Os
USB "on-the-go" is just z marketing gimmick from Nokia so that they can say that they have invented something new and unique even thogh completely useless/pointless.
