Anonymous, 25 May 2010i hope you are nor familiar with the symbian platform. if you were, you would never had said thisActually many people love the Symbian platform especially the Symbian 60 series. I am one of them. Tons of applications are available, the possibilities of what these apps can do to a phone are almost endless.

KID, 24 May 2010it's a quite different case, when I purchased my 5800, I know that it's not like what I imagin... morei agreed. having 5800 is already like having other nokia current phone especialy after v50.
Tom-Helge, 25 May 20101. So you say that Android for example doesn't have those nice programs like Symbian have inst... moreHi Tom,
I see you are still promoting the SE phone in the N8 thread, which is funny in itself. The reason I respond to you however is the app numbers.
Just like Android, Symbian app landscape is fragmented, so I can only give you a total. Judging from the URL's in the store, and expert insight from AAS, it is around 37k for now. Which is pretty good. For a popular model the total number of apps written specifically for that platform & resolution is around 11k now.
Of course, those numbers, just like 50k for Android do not make sense. They need to be analyzed first, removing duplicates like lite or freemium versions.
It is a matter of quality really, and in that sense 10k apps for a given phone is more than enough. The games havent been great so far, but that is because the phones had no 3d acceleration. Now that is fixed, and there is a good sdk, there is no reason to not have great games for S^3. Remember, EA & Gameloft have jumped on the MeeGo train. Those games will use Qt. Qt runs on S^3. Start to make sense?
Kristy, 25 May 2010OMG loving the Nokia N8 thinking of getting it... one question does anyone no if it has audio ... moreHey Kristy, it certainly does, and alot more. To output music you have option of 3.5mm Output, Bluetooth (which is the best, all your music everywhere every time) and FM Transmitter. And when your car audio system evolves, its HDMI ready ;)
I look forward to see some security features in it. Coz im a Samsung and motorola fan, they provide password protection for everything in the menu....

Anonymous, 24 May 2010would be cool if it wasn't symbian. symbian is terrible. would be cooler if it had android why are you putting down the new symbian with even trying it first
symbian and maemo should make babies and so should n8 and n900. imagine the phone that the 2 will make.

Second Iphone started from zero application and Android also. But symbian^3 Has to start from thousands of applications.. I dont see any reason that developer will not make application for Symbian^3.
#1 Symbian is still World No 1 Os.
#2 Symbian^3 comes with qt inbuilt, so if developers will make application for s^3, it will also work on s^4, Meego and future Symbian version. Unlike Android where developers have to rewrite their applications for each platform..
#3 Previous symbian^1 was based on OMAP 1.0, so there was no good games available for it. But S^3 supports OMAP 2.0.
