Same goes to N8. I will give it a hands on test in the Nokia flagship store before purchasing it.
Please note that im testing it at Samsung Flagship store. Do you think they are "unwise" enough to put an outdated firmware device as promotion device?
I'd better wait for N8.
Goodbye to Symb. for past two years and Hello to Android / iPhone.
Nuwan, 31 Jul 2010Dear all friends,
What is this unnecessary argument between Symbian lovers and Android love... moreOS Android and iPhone both has been revolutionary for past few years. It is replacing what was called smart phone symbol. N70. Android and Apple software almost same since initially was developed all by Google. It is coming strong even against Blackberry.
It is nothing possible that can not do with Applications inside iPhone or Android from Weather, verity of News, Stock, Car Renal, Hotel Booking, Airline reservation and status, 10,000 of games, verity of address Books, instant Breaking news from many News Media, iBooks, verity of Social networking, quick office & Editing, worldwide tom-tom, google map. contacts documents sync, find the nearest point of interest, sports, tracking you packages by UPS or others, can keep naming.
So, Symb. does not even come 10% close to what iPhone, Android, or even Blackberry Bold or Storm. Even Samsung start having problem with their new OS and moor successful with Galaxy S, and HTC start being more successful too with Android. WinMo is also going down. HP did not even commit to WinMo 7.
Nokia now successful in low end phones and Symb. S40 since lower price.

What is this unnecessary argument between Symbian lovers and Android lovers...? There could be people who like Symbian OS over Android and there could be people who like Android over Symbian... We can argue forever which is better... But that wouldn't produce a winner...
Just look at PC Operating Systems... Some people like Windows, Some like Mac and Some others like Linux... and each category can argue that their preference is reasonable over others... How can it be possible...? We all got our own desires, thoughts and preferences... When a person likes Symbian that's not for the same reasons that another person likes Android...! So there can't be any comparison what so ever... (That's really unfair...!)
Symbian was, has been the most popular smart Mobile OS so far... and It still is... And Android is getting popular over recent two, three years... We never know... May be people will change their preference from Symbian to Android or vice versa... But we have to understand... It's just what they want... Not the Best... If we ever think, what we want is the best and all others should also go for that... That's ridiculous...
However if we are going to start a conversation, comparing the features of both OS, just for the sole ambition of improving them.. Then that's very good thing.. Why don't we just start something like that...? (Just in case if Nokia would ever listen to what we say, then they will try their best to improve Symbian 3 as per our needs...!)
Am I correct brothers/sisters...?
nokia staff in spore said it b out mid august in spore..let see how true!!!:)
i cant wait no more!!!!:P
I've been waiting for so long for this Nokia N8 to be release but i just need to be patient. hopefully, October 2010, it will be out here in the PHils...

El... morei think the wave you have used is having an old firmware .you can check gsmarena review and youtube videos .the wave can multitask easily even it multitasks java applications,with no memory issues,and for the video recording it looks so real with awsome sound quality,you should check another device to be a fair man
Macky, 30 Jul 2010Hi trent. Just wondering where you saw/read about the checkerboard effect? If it's not too muc... moreHey sure enuf yeeah. There you go..
Watch the video.. In around the 4th or 5th minute I suppose you would find that when he scrolls through the webpage, zooms in and the out.. thats when u will see it. The CHECKERBOARD EFFECT .. Black and white boxes.. U wont find thsi happenin in Samsung Galaxy or wave..
By the way.. I am a Nokia Addict and just hate other brands.
It's really a great one and people can see very longing for it....so i think i will be on great demand..............john
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010Yes i agree with you the symbian 3 is not a fast os it tends to lag and you can notice screen ... moreI doubt you've ever used a nokia symbian smartphone before. You android people seen to be getting too settled on the argument that symbian is slow and stuff like that. So hear now and once.
Symbian is by no standards slow. Not compared to android, ios or any other. There is a difference between not as fast and slow. A bud of mind uses a htc hero. Its not much faster than my n95 8gb when i use the default theme. The less speed is even not as a result of processor or anything but rather os design. Transition effects and animations on symbian^1 are slower than on android. Not because symbian devices are underpowered but because they are meant to be. I'm sure it was really cool when it was first implemented.
And yes, symbian doesn't need a 1ghz processor. The places you could possibly notice a higher processor than the one it was designed to use optimally in a mobile are in its battery life, radiated heat and just maybe when carrying out certain very few processor whacking operations for example when saving a recorded video or zipping very large files.

"Note-software and os shown isnt yet finalized"
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2010Yes i agree with you the symbian 3 is not a fast os it tends to lag and you can notice screen ... moreI think the N8 performing great in the video.
Have you personally hands on tested N8 yet?
Else how can you be so sure that N8 is slow?
I personally tested WAVE at the Samsung flagship shop. The multi-task is so unstable that it give "out of memory" error with just 6 apps. Then it can't even allowed me to close the apps through the multi-tasker.
I tested the video recording function. The recorded sound quality was total disaster.
LED light is not helping at all.
Galaxy S don't even have a single LED flash.
What is it for to have so many home screens when the widget are mostly big in size and one home screen can only accommodate not more than 3 widgets?????
I don't even want to talk about IOS simply because it is not even worth to mention here.
So what if Bada, Android and IOS is SUPER FAST???
With all these flaws..... one word USELESS.
I still will give N8 and Symbian 3 a chance.
Since it is the most matured compared to all the lousy crappy so called OS mentioned by you.
i like this phone alot, but its not superamoled, oh well maybe someday samsung will let other manufacturer use thier latest and greatest technology
pooper, 30 Jul 2010I watched symbian^3 demos on youtube and it looks a lot slower and unresponsive than android o... moreYes i agree with you the symbian 3 is not a fast os it tends to lag and you can notice screen splitting issue in some of youtube videos,nokia and normal people can notice that and compare symbian 3 with andriod,iOS,and even bada and they will see how slow is symbian,other problem that people lieing about is that symbian does not need more processor speed and more ram while the truth is that symbian can not utilize faster processor and bigger ram,no one notice the first iphone was slow or first andriod phone was slow but by increasing the processor speed these phones become faster unlike the symbian which still slow.
some people here are bashing samsung galaxy because it is made of plastic as if nokia never produced a plastic phones or as nokia stopped doing so.
and for the one who said that he can not show his galaxy because it is made of plastic,i advice him to check the super amoled screen in a near by samsung dealer and he will know that no other phone can be showed in the presence of galaxy except the samsung wave.
