And why is this particular phone so hard to write about? How about because a picture is worth a thousand words and we just had a...

I still use my 808 as my primary phone every day. It's fantastic. The Nokia store sucks, but I now have a Galaxy tablet for the power-user stuff... so as a phone, camera, navigation device and whatsapp messenger, all these in combination, it still kicks ass. Fantastic device still after almost 2 years and more than 6000 photos. It's very sturdy and everything still works.

> In reply to Marek @ 2012-08-14 08:22 from 0wQC - click to readi really dont get why people keep calling symbian outdated.. well its browser is outdated (im looking at you opera, bring your new browser to symbian, you dont have a market on android) and its ecosystem is also a bit outdated coz nokia fail to support devs and devs dont support symbian..but symbian is still flexible and can do what can this android do (coz i really see that android is the only competition of symbian, they're both very customizable but still symbian beat it in terms of hardware coz symbian is fluid with an outdated hardware while android cant do that)

all out WP is a big mistake! nokia should have MeeGo and Symbian live! symbian for low end (ditch the S40 dumbphones and make a real ASHA SMARTPHONES WITH SYMBIAN BELLE) and MeeGo for higher Mid Range to high end and flagship!! look at samsung, they are prepping their own OS coz they (i think) also realize that android is enjoying its spot right now and its not healthy for the competition!

i just hope Nokia will come to their senses and develop symbian and support MeeGo (even though jolla has them, nokia should buy them, i really found jolla's sailfish UI a bit of misleading and annoying (same goes with ubuntu i think only blackberry 10 get the swipe UI easily to understand), while the swipe UI of MeeGo N9 is innovative and simple, everyone can easily understand how MeeGo works...

so nokia, if you want to stay relevant, go for meego and symbian not WP and S40!

"Nokia 3220 (brick + cover) was the first NFC handset available commercially./Samsung SGH-D500E (Slider) was the first NFC-phone presented (CeBit 2005). Today the growth of near field communication technology is facilitated by the NFC Forum. Founded in 2004 by Sony, Nokia, and Philips, the NFC Forum creates the technical specifications that those developing NFC compatible devices and NFC tags must follow". Everyone can copypaste but please do it right at least.

The man said it like it is and the fact that he doesn't play games doesn't mean that they don't exist. See "User opinions and reviews" for game recommendations, they are talking about that right now.

I'm an owner of 808 with FP 2. I'm very satisfied with this phone. Before I intended to buy 4S or Note 2. 4S Camera disappointed me and Note 2 the usability too complex. I had N8 before. So 808 its a great Upgrade. Thanks Nokia!
