Whether Nokia will shelve S40 or not is another thing, but what is clear is that there won't be any S40 touch screen phones.
You ppl are all assuming the misconception that nokia as abandoned S40! Well ur wrong! they are just adjusting to the new market demands for more Smartphones hence why the Maemo 5 + 6 tag team with the New Symbian 3 should meet these demands. The Question is can the interface for the new S60 be 'perfect'(tht is no bugs: absolute stability, prestigeous 'iphone-a**-kicking' UI and more responsive touchwise) enough to really impress us... the world is watching for NOKIA 2010!
Well, s40 can't multitask which really angers me, so go for it! Nokia!!!
They should be.s4o is limited in multitasking & software aplication unlike s60 is complex & expandable in many ways.its time for smartphones.Go nokia..!
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2009They should keep S40 and bin S60. S40 is at least a stable operating system, S60 crashed once ... moreI have my N82 with me all the day and it only crashes when I'm experimenting installing crap and crap, but... for eeveryday use it's totally stable
i think tht some features of s40 are too good and they should be clubbed with the s60...
then s60 would be the best ever...!!!
The Nokia Series 40 was a good plataform many years ago, now it is time for a change, i hope the best for the new Symbian^2
S40 is direct competition to iPhone. About 50% of the S40 series have better specs & offer much better user experience.
They should keep S40 and bin S60. S40 is at least a stable operating system, S60 crashed once a day, on a good day!
I think Sony Ericsson (cell phone) , icon even suck, it's still the same since SE W800/K750i.
I'm glad to know that s40 is ruining up.
S60 SYMBIAN ROCKS!
Maemo ....huh.. lets experience the new..
For me, S40 would hold its ground much better if the following features get to be implemented:
b) support for MS Office documents
If this won't become a reality, then make S60 more user-friendly.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2009Is there such a thing called the "best phone in the the world." Nope, unfortunately there is n... morehey bro don't waste your time with "Dani"
shes just a 12 year old girl whos the biggest SE fanboy and the only reason why SE is still alive cause this girl buys the remakes
if you look on other news forums this girls stated all the phones shes bought and all are SE
she just pretends to own a iphone cause she has no life.
later bro keep chillin
Dani, 03 Dec 2009Sony Ericsson without a doubt make the BEST non-OS phones! Now SE makes the best non-smart phone. I beg to differ. Please define what do you mean by "best" in this context. I think Nokia is more user friendly than SE. Latest SE's phones seem to have copied Nokia's keypad format whereby the "spacing" used to be on the right & now is in the centre which is more natural just like in PC & laptops.
