too late nokia too late.....Android is the new way, even iphone OS is way better than the symbian one!
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010Symbian goes to open Source....in 2010 middle every mobil manufactures
can use this OS.It's n... morenokia still owns rights to symbian and the foundation but sony,samsung and the others contribute to nokia to use their symbian s60 OS
atleast they wont steal like apple from nokia they part take in their share

welcome winmo 7
welcome iphone 4
i had satio and got rid of it i think the operaing system is crap slow to many menues i cant wait for next easy to use i phone
what a strategic move nokia makes.
are we so bad nokia.
this is some dirty move nokia makes by not releasing symbian^2
well isn it obvious.
they are still selling and will still sell symbian^1 and that makes it dirty.
it's like selling xp over and over and over and over and over and over again by not releasing vista but going straight to seven. it's like promising something but just buy our products today and eventually we will release something better.
naughty naughty nokia
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010I'm gonna be pissed if my nokia n900 isn't able to update to maemo 6 os. Obviously nokia proba... moreBut then again, if it happens, you can't say nobody told you so.
Truth be told, if they release M6 for N900, I would be that much surprised...
Symbian goes to open Source....in 2010 middle every mobil manufactures
can use this OS.It's not a nokia patent OS.
now it's for Nokia,Sonyericsson,samsung,docommo& huyai manufatures.
really good to know especially about symbian. Nokia should have to launch a device with good spec etc, I have used almost all the nokia devices, x6 is good as well but lacks UI and speed
I agree on how fast Android is catching up, for an OS that's just a few yr old. But when comparing with symbian and maemo, android's like the google chrome-fast but not powerful enough, maemo is like mozilla firefox-very powerful but not famous enough, and symbian is like the internet explorer, while os9.4 or symbian^1 may be IE6, and even if symbian^2/3 don't make it, symbian^4 is definitely gonna be the IE8( which is by the way most used/downloaded browser now)...
Even if they don't wanna reease ne devices with symbian^2, I just hope they port it our devices and upgrade us from ^1 to s^2. Let's just hope that the symbian countdown brings something to cheer for..

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010I just saw the Symbian^3 UI and it was total BS! Seriously! It looks so trying hard! And they ... moreI wonder if the maemo5uiteam help the symbian ui team to bring out the symbian 3/4?
If yes, it would be great!!!!!!
Nokia hold many essential gms patents that everysmart phone must use
the things nokia "copy" are not essetial, not important
Great ui and os
my only advice to them is a new fresh icons design and attractive theme
no. We don want to serach for third party theme set with custom icons
I just saw the Symbian^3 UI and it was total BS! Seriously! It looks so trying hard! And they even copied iPhone's photo gallery! How lame is that! And they try to sue Apple! Wow they are so lame!
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010too leat ... in 2010 q3 vill be realiset android 3.0Got that right!
oh i'm so excited about symbian thing! If ever nokia fixed all the bugs regarding ram, 3d graphics(as in almost flawless like what the preview game advertised on youtube for n82), slow ui and flawed web browser, then a very competitive phone will surely arise. And with the trademark nokia cheapness, they may take the world astorm! Waiting for the n87, the next best thing for a camera smartphone...
nokia, you not even walking......don't use your brand image,just like that.We are the die-hard fan of Nokia,are noe embarrassed.
too leat ... in 2010 q3 vill be realiset android 3.0
Agree with the guys about 5530 as i have it to. But the bugs are just too much. I hope we get some new features when symbian 3 is released, or that some genius hacks his way and makes it possible at least. Signs point to nokia not releasing n98 anytime soon, so probably, the updates will be ported to our phones. But probably in time for symbian 4, n98 will be released,and it would get the symbian 4, but not current phones.
so nothing in 1st half of 2010...
