Still loving the Apple Hate.
Nokia Beta Testers just don't get it. They claim they do, and lie about having owned an iphone, or provide links to erroneous web pages, but they don't understand that a bug free user experience and no lag from the start is a wonderful thing on a phone. Customer service, and the best app store, plus the best support on a phone bar none, shows that Nokia still have a Loooooooong way to go to match Apple. It's common sense. No "isheep", no massive conspiracy by Apple...(lol)
People buy the iphone, and like it. And they are STILL buying it. And that's a cold hard fact.
when ihear that ipad sold over 1mil in 1month it makes me crazy. How many people are in the world? Like 7bilion? How many are in the us? 250 milion? I want to see how many they sell in 6 or 12 months. Even though i am a nokia fan, i am geting the n8, i must admit that the iphone 4g will be a great TOY.
Reading through most of the comments here the only problem most people could point out about Symbian was its lag.
Well Nokia seems to have addressed that and the N8 has much better hardware, a graphic processor and a low resolution. This should put a stop to that problem.
Nokia admitted that the performance problems (like the missing transitions and slow pinch zoom) of the N8 on the promotional videos was due to pre-release firmware and that the final product will be much faster.
So no more Lag Lag Lag, Only WIN WIN WIN.
[deleted post]Lol it is a giant itouch
Itunes is even on the ipad XD that's a joke
It may looks nice but
It's nothing new since you can read ebooks on anything
Even my n900 has an ebook reader lol
Apple is just forcing people to adjust to their standards
Yearly upgrades with minimum hardware upgrade and shafty features
SOhag, 07 May 2010I just love my IPhone, people who saying Iphone is bad is because they didn't try one yet, I w... moreYeah exactly, other than the fact that i actually had iPhone 3GS for 3-4 weeks back in August. I won it on a call in morning Radio show for arranged by my workplace (actually i was going for the PS3 boxset prize for my little brother) but i won the iPhone.
After 3-4 weeks of hassle i gave to my littls sister and everything on that phone is done by me, j-breaking, uppdating, apphunting on ice, cydia amd Ap--lo (which is closed now). So i know very well what the iPhone is about and i wasn't the least bit impressed (except the fast interface).
To be fair i had the same lame experience with the Nokia N97 which is even lamer than the Iphone, which proves Symbian is not ready for touch.
Then i got Nokia N900 from work and it's finest piece of handheld technology i have ever used, specially the Maemo 5 OS. It makes Symbian and Apple look severly crippled pieces of junk. I hard to belive N900 and N97 is made by the same company.
It's very ignorant to say that the people that don't like iPhone have never used on, i personally know at least 10 people who have used iPhone and changed cause they didn't think it was good enough, and i know the same number of people that stick to their iPhones i like it.
Open your mind..
I just love my IPhone, people who saying Iphone is bad is because they didn't try one yet, I waited for so long to get my Iphone, but finally got it last month, but let me tell you is really awesome, I would like to get the 4G but have to wait for a year or 2 so my provider can accept it.
Anonymous, 07 May 2010I know huh. The ipad was truly a failure. It only sold more than a million units in less tha... more:D
well, ok. that was funny.
and what's really hilarious and sad is..you are right!
let me tell you some stuff about apple.
when the first gen of iphone came out here, the actually PAID people to stand in lines in front of the provider office!
when the 3rd gen came out, they made a huge colorful throne with screaming adds for it(plus al day running adverts on the huge screen in the store) right behind the entrance doors of the store.
AND IT'S STILL THERE.
while other phones all share usual docking tables. the direct competition such as HTC HD2, omnia's, XPERIA'S and nokias is nowhere to be seen!
there was a survey with 6 famous politicians here which are having iphone on why they purchased it.
one said because i like steve jobs. (!) two said that they couldn't
quite give the reasons why.
one said that he guess he had to see what's all the fuss about it.
one said that because it's shiny design and the "touch" experience.
and for ipad, enjoy this - the most popular daily papers suddenly threw a shiny 4 page report about the ipad, couple of days before it's release. in front of the huge majority of common crowd that never heard of the damn thing before!
and the main issue with the report two days after the release was all into a ipad-style pages! in front of the common gadget-neutral people! wtf?!?
here's a simple question for you:
stripe off apple's logo from the ipad, take away all of the hype and marketing and imagine him produced by asus or archos. even with all the features and the same OS.
how many of them you'd see sold worldwide in the first month?
the one million figure in first mont actually says it all!
it can't have nothing to do with the user's feedback can it!
the real truth about ipad is - users are disappointed soon after they buy it. they realize it's useless and too expensive.
and thats why i said it's a failure.
the hype will soon wear out and turn into reality - poor reputation of a useless toy; no one would want to buy ipad 2, and this one will soon have a huge decrease in sales. ("wait and see")
[deleted post]Same here, i have too put up with people asking me everysay why iPhone battery goes dead everyday all the time after minimal use, why the screen turns black when they stream news, info etc online on 90% of internet, they ask why the autorotate gets stuck in album mode when tilted in hand or pocket, and why they have exit iPod app and restart it all the time to correct it, as well why iPod app doesn't start and the phone gets gets stuck for at least a minute in whitescreen sometimes. They also ask me why the phone lags and shows 3-4 second whitescreens once so start filling up memory. They also ask me if they can use it without iTunes and why the iTunes has to wipe the whole phone everytime you change PC or have reninstall OS or iTunes app cause deauthorization issues. They also ask med if they can better quality on photos and how they should do to take pictures in the evening when light goes low. There is is so many question about iPhone that i canät deal with everyday, so i help people with Android instead, much more cozy and laidback,.

It's just that there's not much hype about it and not great marketing. Symbian's excellent performance and years and years and years and years of existence needs to be hyped up and marketed well, that's all. Symbian apps are everywhere, but Nokia does not create hype about it and does not market it like Apple does their iphone.
dara, 07 May 2010Apple is ALL ABOUT HYPE AND MARKETING. Wake up you isheeps. Now this iphone will be marketed t... moreI know huh. The ipad was truly a failure. It only sold more than a million units in less than a month. It failed big time. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett congratulated Steve Jobs despite the ipad's failure. And yes, the iphone is just all about hype and marketing in the last three years. And that is why more and more people are buying the iphone because of all the hype and brilliant marketing, and their buyers still keep their iphones and are still planning to upgrade to the next gen iphone because again there's hype and great marketing. Iphone users are even happy with their iphones because off all these hype and marketing by Apple. As long as Apple will continue the iphone hype and great marketing, the iphone will sell in the millions, but at the same time it will be a failure just like the past three iphones.
Apple is ALL ABOUT HYPE AND MARKETING. Wake up you isheeps. Now this iphone will be marketed to death as the "HD device" like it's the 8th world's wonder. That's apple's way.
Look how ipad lifted off PURELY because of marketing. While users are actually finding it be the useless overpriced toy and a huge fail.
Just wait and see.
y do ppl hate the iphone so much? the n8 isnt that much better hardware wise and the iphone os is much better. for the uk the diff in price between iphone and othe brands isnt massive if you get it on contract.
if the specs of the new iphone hd are correct then i think the device will be much better than the n8 mainly because i want mobile gaming (yes i have a psp and it was last used about 1 yr ago), i want a responsive OS (ALL other brands do have laggy interfaces, i have tried them all lol) and i dont much care for a decent camera.
Anonymous, 07 May 2010yeah... right! iPhone and iPad rule! and other copy... that's the way to be... ha ha ha..SO true. iPhone sells like crazy every quarter and the iPad sold like 1million in 28 days. Dang that's crazy. Apple's awesome. :)
yeah... right! iPhone and iPad rule! and other copy... that's the way to be... ha ha ha..
Like I said... Symian is dead. No one is developing for Symbian anymore. You don't even have the latest cool 3D games and thousand of apps. All you guys are using are lame 2003 java apps on an outdated UI. lol.
OMG...another Ijunk!! Apple users are Apple's slaves!! Go Android people and enjoy the freedom!!
Love the ihate from the Nokia Beta Testers! I wonder how many N8's get returned due to hardware faults and bugs?
Keep your delusional hate coming, iPhone owners areclaufhing at your sad ways :))))
big deal! why do isheep people get crasy about this, why an article on this and not on the N8 which will have it for sure, not to mention a superior camera (double more pixels as iphone) Xenon flash (not led) will read flash, will have aluminium casing and so much more. Same as today, the N900 is multitask, has HD screen, TV out, better camera... than the iphone. One thing apple is brilliant in marketing, the only things Nokia can learn from Apple...
