N97 mini is almost a perfekt phone, it has a perfekt qwerty, the only thing missing is bigger RAM and a bigger battery, plus an improved OVI-store. I hope Nokia will improve N97 mini. Android is overhyped, as iPhone was/is.
post new photos and new info at N8's specifications...
and I think this is the phone: http://mobilesblog.info/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/nokia_n98.jpeg
Keith, 29 Mar 2010It's not outdated. But it's barely catching up. That's pretty much the same functionality as... moreSymbian Fragmentation ???!~?
Do you know what QT is ?
Do you know N900 is going to get Dual Boot , with both Maemo5 and MeeGo ?
lol you don't know even have a clue about what you are talking
and you have gone a head advising a multi-billion dollar company.
I'll ask them to fire their staff and employee you.. since you are the smartest of all.
If people buy iPhone because it has many apps.. let them buy.. why do you care ?
[deleted post]Just buy it! I prefer chinese food!
Ps: Most nokia phones are made in Hungary!
Keith, 29 Mar 2010How is it going to a whole lot more affordable? Android's free. How's Symbian going to beat that?They give "free", but nobody is taking it, nobody want their stuff being stolen from Google!
[deleted post]It's not outdated. But it's barely catching up. That's pretty much the same functionality as Android or the iPhone OS. And they are moving on to their next generations. So what's so special about Symbian^3?
[deleted post]They've also got tainted milk for infants and shoddy construction for schools. What's your point?
I'd bet over Bangalore putting out better stuff than Guangzhou any day. There's reason the worlds IT firms are tripping over themselves to get to Bangalore.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2010Don't quite agree with it. I'm sure most of the ordinary consumer don't buy a phone because it... moreAhh but they do. People buy phones that they can do lots of things with. That means apps.
There is no other reason to explain why the iPhone is doing so well. If it was just hardware and a decent OS, Nokia and Symbian would have been where Apple and the iPhone are today, and nobody would be talking about the fruit from California.
Apple's innovation isn't in the OS or the hardware (though there's some there), it's in the app store. Any other OEM that fails to understand this, is doomed to fail.
Maybe people never bought phones in the past for apps. But they do now.
The Supposed to be N8-00 better be released Nokia, as people have been waiting for sometime for Nokia show they can still compete in the Top Camera Section,as they let the N86 down with the weak speakers an screen size,since the N82 an the Xenon Flash still the same camera size on nearly every Nokia phone ,Nokia have just stuck to the 5 mega-pixel cameras for so long an annoying there fans as Samsung an Sony Ericsson have shown Nokia up be willing to bring better camera mobiles out,the new Symbian software better be as simple as easy like the previous version or Nokia will be throwing more money away
I've had Nokias all the time,last year i bought Htc Magic,being used with symbian i could not get comfortable with Android phone and moved back to Nokia again.Using Nokia n97 mini now i realise that Android is just superior compared to symbian.
Sh, 29 Mar 2010If nokia wants me to get back to purchasing their phones they've really got to try to improve ... moreAs an owner of the HTC Hero and also the Milestone, I can say that the Android operating system is overhyped as the next big thing. There's just way too much clutter and lacks essential programmes that I would find from the more mature OS, Android is no big deal for me. I will take what they have and be like the next guy, but it's not exciting.
I have to aggree with one of you guys,...just wait for the announcement and then comment because you will be quite happy when it will be launched - Ive seen it already :)
Tech and design wise,...its close to perfect :)
If nokia wants me to get back to purchasing their phones they've really got to try to improve their software..
I'm not quite aware of how good symbian 3 or even symbian4 will be, but i've got the feeling android is just going to run circles around nokia's software and therefor the next phone i purchase is most probably going to be an android based os phone.
gam28toronto, 29 Mar 2010Honestly i have been a Nokia fan for the past few years.... but i know that my next phone will... moreof cause don't just make 1 phone. It will be so boring with so little phone in the market. But I do agree Nokia should invest more on their software.
[deleted post]Totally agree with you. What so good about iphone? with the same price, I'm sure you can buy a much better smartphone. Besides, iphone 2g, 3g, 3gs are all the same old look. BORING!
Keith, 29 Mar 2010And you totally missed the point of the original comment. The average consumer does not pic... moreDon't quite agree with it. I'm sure most of the ordinary consumer don't buy a phone because it has lots of application available.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2010Symbian 4 is gonna be better than android and windows phone, and a whole lot more affordable.How is it going to a whole lot more affordable? Android's free. How's Symbian going to beat that?
