Resistive is just as sensitive as capacitative depending on the phone, eg. get an N900 and do a reality check.
It also works with gloves and anything else AND it doesn't crack! For got sake they ran a truck over 5800!
Fluency and snappiness is related to the CPU and capacitative screens like in iPhone give a lag feeling all the tine if your nail happens to touch it ;)
Of course I'm not saying capacitative screens are bad, only the one used in iPhone because they used the cheapest glass :)))

iphone 3G/3GS is NOT even a real smartphone. It can't multitask.
If you use skype and there's a phone call, your skype will be cut off.
the source is here. look at the tomy anohen almanacs, and the nokia number sales.
you'll be amazed to see that a single nokia E71 beat all iphone combined throughout 2007-2009. http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/

The iPhone was the BEST SELLING TOUCHSCREEN SMARTPHONE in 2009. Your talking about a non touchscreen phone that is kinda smart but is cheap.
Dont make me laugh ha ha ha :)

For starters they need to ditch Symbian. If they start to aim for Android then they are going in the right direction at least. Then they need to stop this obsession with the Resistive Touchscreen. Resistive is annoying. Then they need to concentrate on the UI. This has been been missing from Nokia phones as of late.
If they can get the right formulas, Nokia will be back to being one of the top mobile brand names. Until thenm they are low-mid range experts only.

Nokia Ovi maps were the best, as it can be used in offline mode.
(data were pre-stored on the phone)

Type in iPhone Sales figures and you will so many answers :)
Its almost laughable that people still bring it Resistive Screen Nokias like the N900 into this debate. Resistive Screen = Use a stick to move the screen. Resistive Screen lacks the fluency, sensitivity and snappiness of a Capacitive Touchsceen.
The left corner can not be touch, it will make users hand numb and likely to drop the phone in some cases
oh, the new iphone has two side made of glass, what happen if you drop it? It is good for apple, but no good for consumers
if you want computer, windows uis always my choice
phone, meego is the future, i am glad nokia merges with the giant intel, it is a smart move
another smart mmove nokia has made are the acqusition of trolltech qt and navtech
sat nav, think of nokia ovi maps
small computer with phone functionality, think of meego phone
popint and shoot camera, think of nokia camera flagship n8
there is ab important area nokia really need to focus on is the making game device in phones
it can not be neglected, if nokia can atteract deelopers with nokia recently released qt sdk, then nokia is close to perfect.
That is what i wanna said..
If NOKIA continue to made their phon3 in go0d des¡gn..metarial..thats greatest ever..
Juz think.. Eseries model E71,E66 can sold good..now E72 and E75 again..if NOKIA made their phone all in silver or aluminium metarials that muzt pop up their market better n better..
[deleted post]The Apple iPhone was the top selling smartphone of 2009, selling nearly 25million handsets. Bearing in mind, throughout 2009 they only had the iPhone 3GS and 3G for sale. 2 handsets.
Nokia has about 100 smartphones on sale all ranging from low to high prices.
It doesnt take a genius to work out that a larger range with prices to accomadate all ends will naturally sell more than a high end handset at a high end price.
YET, still the iPhone was the best selling smartphone of 2009.
Need I say more? :)
If it is possible
it is the best time to announce n8 and meego phone
Appl3 makes people think (feel) their products interesting..
But after using the iphone,n0 matt3r iphone 1,2g,3g,3gs..thats no any new featur3s or something interested..
Most of them people always use iphone only in surfing internet,gaming only..
Juz think about that clearly..
If iphone not in use in touchUI,i means 'multitouch'..such as BORED phone ever..
I think that !f NOKIA continue to made more again applications in many of TouchUI,means amusing in operarati0n method on SymbianOS,thats perf3ct..For m3..iphone is only one thing can make my eyes put on it..simple..Multitouch..
Seriously im not hat3 iphone but its not so useful for me in my life..I cant get my work without multitasking..i do to check my Email,IM,sms,ems,video call,Skype call,Web in 5hours a day..im not lose my business partners in any seconds..lol
And Im waiting the N8 12Mp,N9,N920Internet Tablet Phone in time began now..
Now im using Blackberry Storm 2 9520..it works fin3..a lag sometimes,and it got issues in media player when im play!n my video..anyway mayb it will be my second phone when i gotta to have a NOKIA model..
NOKIA is works great when i saw my friend use n0 car3 in business times,multimeda,games fun etc..
Thats why i would like to got i t..
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010I like the iPhone. It is a nicely designed device with a slick, user friendly UI and many prac... moreHi,
iPhone is a good phone, but there were nothing special about it. At the start of iPhone, the 2G, apple decide to focus on the beauty and disregarding it's functionality. It make the 2G can't do multi-task, MMS, cut and paste, and so on, and so on, where the competitor can do all of that's nicely. It's not about the competitor catching up with iOS, but it's about priority. Apple priority is on the package, look and feel, and others such as nokia & android & rim, choose functionality over looks and feel.
The result is obvious, apple only manage to sell bellow 10 million phone at the iphone 2 era.
Then after 3G and 3GS and 4, apple multi tasking is still bellow the competitor. It's only a bit better than nokia S40 6th edition.... read the dumb phone from nokia. but it's not the true preemptive multitasking.
let face it. it's about apple who thinks that their user don't need the real multitasking. so, when nokia optimize for multitask than looks and feel, it's not becoming apple is the best. it's all about balancing the OS.
At the end, after each OS mature, the functionality of each OS will be very close to each other, and the new era of fight will began.
But before that, I don't like apple product NOT because it's bad... As I said. iPhone is good to some extent (if I want iCandy).
The one i don't like about apple is, I feel that apple were like the way american portrait the bad communist. I won't go into the political debate on communist vs. democrat, but what I like to highlight here is american always said that the bad of communist is because they like to censor, not giving freedom, etc.... apple does all of that....
a couple of obvious example... iStore, AT&T
non-obvious, if your 2 years contract with AT&T is finish, can you ask AT&T or apple to unlock the phone? The answer is NO. Why on earth, apple still try to take control of something that user have been paid for.
If the user able to unlock it without jailbreaking it, then sell it to other user, that user will someday become an apple fan too. but apple refuse to do that. isn't this is the way american portrait how bad the communist were?
if someone said apple is good, i think they really need to try other phone, and be smart, not zoombie.
Heartbreak Kid, 25 Jun 2010I appreciate some of your points. Before the iPhone came out, touchscreen phones had specs but... moreTaking something that already existed for years and making it a bit more user friendly is not revolutionary. Especially if you restrict or remove many useful functions in the process, like Apple is doing. Nothing on the iPhone is new, it is just prettied up.
I'm surprised you havnt picked up on the story of the complete shambles of the CPW iPhone 4 launch, OMG what day we all had :-(
You can trash talk iphone but lets admit it... you do it because you envy i phone, right? Logically speaking if you think the OS of your phone is good why compare it to i phone? There must be something wrong with your OS dude that you are not satisfied so your putting the blame on other OS (like i phone OS perhaps? If I were you try to concentrate on your OS dude, anyway all those who have I phone is happy with their OS... you understand me right?
