I think Samsung are very optimistic about Nokia... it'll be interesting. i'm waiting for release day... price vs. quality/functionallity are really good!
If only Samsung can sort out their tech support like integrated fw support, In this area is really Samsung comes out poor.

Where do you know that meego is so advanced as you say? Also, I don't want to hurt you but ymbian sucks! Finally, maemo & meego have as basement the linux, as Bada does! So, stop your impressive propaganda, because in the end you won't have positive results! Cheers! :)
as my american friends say, too little, too late samsung. Android has already takken the 1st prize...
I think GSMARENA fail to highlight that this prediction is only in russia market. Look at their MS in 2009 4Q, they are already near nokia. It is not surprise that they would overtake nokia this coming qtr. In fact, nokia has lose a number of market dominance to samsung, that includes USA and some key europe market. the reason Nokia is still number 1 because they hold on market share to the key market such as India which it has more than 50% while samsung has onli 10%.. These are market which mostly buy low end product.
Something to make Nokia scratch there heads. Bada makes the as yet to be released symbian ^ 3 look dated already plus iphone OS 4.0 debuts on Thursday Android 2.1 starting to ship RIM got there own update going on Nokia better watch out! I've always used Nokia but N97 made me think twice about Nokia being able to sustain superiority in the smart-phone market they're losing the battle.
I don't care who makes the phone. As long as it has superior features and performance, then I'll buy it. The new innovation is Samsung came out a phone with a projector on it, that's bad ass. It would be even better if it can record videos at 1080p with at least 30fps. Alongside with that is a Xenon flash, video light, image stablilization/anti-handshake, and a fast processor too. That would be the ultimate phone. I will be the first one to buy it if they make that kind of phone.
Both maemo/meego/linux and symbian are advanced open source systems. Neither of them are dependant on nokia, especially not linux.
Bada is just another ridiculous adition but it's surely even more primitive than Android which is quite primitive on it's own. I won't even mention iPhone that doesn't even have an OS.
At least they stuck with windows. If I ever gat a samsung, that's what it's gonna be.
Noman, Samsung didn't adopt Meego because they didn't want to depend on Nokia. For the same reason they threw away the Symbian. (I hope to understand my English! :D)
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2010Those phones look like bricks. What's the big deal?Must i correct everyone today?
Samsung wave and samsung galaxy S is gona be thee thinnest touch phones out on the market. How are they bricks? if they are bricks then you are saying a nokia n900 or n97 or HTC HD2 or actually every other touch phone are bricks....
Noman, 05 Apr 2010Samsung could have done the smart thing and used either Android, Symbian or MeeGo. But nooo, t... moreUmm Samsung has used symbian in the samsung omnia HD phone.
They are using android in the samsung galaxy S. How are they not smart?
100 apps for launch is really good. So to correct you they will have games and the graphics should look really good.
i forgive you for saying they aint smart :)
the problem is samsung's os is supported by nearly enough companies. Atleast nokia is being supported by moblin, linux, intel, mozilla... there's no question about it, the support of these companies will show in the end product.
Samsung could have done the smart thing and used either Android, Symbian or MeeGo. But nooo, they have this BADA which will have no games and low amount of apps! Why didn't they choose MeeGo if they wanted the full Linux experience?
predictions are predictions... the proof is in the pudding. Samsung may be innovating, but its not like the other companies have stopped. So lets see if samsung can pull a rabbit out of thier hat and overtake nokia (highly doubt this is possible since nokia's rep is far more established than any other company)...
good luck to all companies
lately i saw some videos about bada os on youtube and i was impressed!! the UI is so smooth that it's a Huge IPhone os Killer! of course it's too soon to talk about the bada os but i think it's gonna be a hit , if you ask me i'd say samsung is actually making its way to the top , good luck
