If Nokia built the type of device with full PC functionality and be able to communicate it with local Tvs and projectors its literally making that device we were all dreaming of. Carry it into your pocket, take it out and expand the screen everything, in your pocket. Imagine this having a full scale gaming console in your pocket have it all syncronised with the internet. Play it on your mobile, or get home and stream it all through wifi and bluetooth to the TV.(BT v3 in N8)
Imagine, business users, settling at any hotel and getting internet through wifi and plugging the screen into the TV, hey presto! Online video conference over large screen in your pocket, from anywhere.
This is what I think Nokia is trying to do.
But they get it done before people get sick of the font.
is there any developement goin on for N97 firmware or software???it realy needs some major upgrades...i own it n i know it
Symbian as an operating system is very buggy (putting it politely). One of the biggest bugbears of it is that constantly it stops you sending texts. This is across all manufacturers and only reinstalling/updating the software will sort it. I work in the telecommunications industry and know this first-hand. I do hope that they sort this issue, otherwise there is no point in this planned update.
xxxwatcher, 14 Mar 2010what kind of laptop they use? the screen bazel is too thick like its Nokia phone!!! never seen... moreYour post shows you are completely ignorant of the Nokia line-up. The Nokia e52 is only 9mm thick. How many other smart phones on the market are thinner than that?
This is the problem with allowing people to post without having to create a user account. Anonymity brings out the bravado in the ignorant.
what kind of laptop they use? the screen bazel is too thick like its Nokia phone!!! never seen any smart phone of nokia thiner than other phone!
i hope symbian would have maemo ui
and dont forget to have threaded sms and slide to unlock
You don't have to go far with Nokia to see their innovative flaws. Why do they like to keep that date icon on 12 and not reflecting the current date? Did they invent it on the 12th or some year? Fonts aren't a safe bet for attractiveness which is why most phones do with widgets and icons without them. There is this invented notion that people like to see their contacts faces! Why not something similar to the Maemo UI?
Silent, 13 Mar 2010Do you think Nokia X6 can be upgraded to Symbian 3 later in Q3 this year?Sure, most of them will bee updated to s60v3, but if consumers show much interest in MeeGo, than S60v4 may take longer time to bee released.
tawd, 13 Mar 2010Did you guys even listen to the video? Symbian^3 is NOT meant to show anything new/groundbr... moreWe know that, it's just like WinXP-sp1, winXP-sp2 and winXP-sp3 update, but will bee better UI usability, internally don't have to bee much change it's because is the way symbian way use it, it's like having a real computer in pocket.

Symbian^3 is NOT meant to show anything new/groundbreaking/innovative AT ALL. IT IS DESIGNED TO BRING SYMBIAN BACK UP-TO-DATE. As of right now, Symbian is out of date, Symbian^3 is simply meant to bring it to a level where everyone EXPECTS it to be.
When Symbian^4 rolls around, that is when we will be seeing new features. Even so, keep in mind, Nokia is NOT presenting a NEW OS here - it's still Symbian! You guys are acting like this HAS to be something COMPLETELY new; but it's not, it's still the same tried and true platform, yet it's being upgraded in terms of usability.
Most of you guys are taking this completely out of context.
Wait for Meego people, symbian just doesn't cut it these days, just can't compete with android, htc sense, iphone os. Gotta compare symbian to them, nokia is making the most money out of the phone business, they should have something better than boring old symbian. Even symbian3 doesn't look all that promising.
nokia fan, 13 Mar 2010lets face the truth and stop living in a dream world iphone is way better than most of the nok... morethe iPhone is not a phone I'd compare with symbian or nokia in general. The target audience is not the same.
CraigC, 13 Mar 2010To answer your question, Nokia have a couple of omap phones, the N95 the N82 and a couple of o... moreWell... N900 has OMAP3, and the rumored N8 will have it as well. But yeah, N96 and N97 + gaming = joke
