Adroid won't survive Apple iOS winds,they've 2 thank Sony 4 the new Playstation1 game platform,it will help the battle.Btw,next Apple iphone 5 is rumoured 2 have similar specs in terms of CPÜ & GPU of the recently announced PSP 2 NGP.
All Nokia has 2 do is launch their Meego phones this year and secure their 1st place again.
marc, 29 Jan 2011no offence but i think the bcm2727 is a better gpu then the one the galaxy s has, i just wonde... morethe N8's GPU IS better than that of SGS, better than iPhone 4s, better than EVERYTHIN(save fer the ones in the latest dual-cores)
very interesting, in another website ZTE is 4th with 52 million phones sold, how come here is not even mentioned?
Kim, 29 Jan 2011Man have you ever owned a Symbian phone before? All those who talk bad about Symbian have they... moreLet me ask the same question to u.... Have u ever used an android device before ????
Android devices are much better in giving u a pleasant touch interface.
"Symbian sucks on touchscreen" ....says gsmarena.
There's a steep learning curve for those who are new to symbian, while in android everything is much easier(less clicks).
Symbian is much behind Android and iOS in usability standard....
Now android has a much better and larger appstore(100000 apps)....
66% are free in android!!!!
On the other side 90% of apps in symbian are mainly for s60....(low quality)
Now if u talk about functionality please talk about the browser in N8....im sure ur forced to use opera mini all the time...
At the same time Android offer the best internet experience....even better than iOS.
Symbian is more battery efficient.....but that doesnt mean u put a smaller battery in it.....That tooo non replaceable one...
all I want to say is symbian is a good OS but there are certainly better OSes in the market...
marc, 29 Jan 2011no offence but i think the bcm2727 is a better gpu then the one the galaxy s has, i just wonde... moreye dnt hav te thnk the Broadcomm BCM2727 GPU on the N8 is better than the SGS SGX540. Samsung's 90Mp/s was a damn lie. Check this out:
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2011LOL, like i said FM transmitters and radios are a joke. The general mass does not use it. Agai... moreI have to disagree with you on that. I've heard from many people that OS performance is a joke on the HTC wildfire which happenns to run on a 528mhz processor. same goes with the x10 mini/pro even with a 600mhz processor.
fm transmitters can be pretty useful especially in car stereos which dont have a auxiliary jack or an ipod dock. FM radios are here to stay mate. Not everyone has an unlimited data plan. Hence internet radios are impractical to them.
This symbian vs android vs iOS fight (meego to join soon) doesnt not seem to have a definite winner at all. Y still go on when it is just useless. You know what this means guys? different people have different needs, geddit? there is no such thing as a perfect phone. IMHO we should choose according to our needs, not based on popularity.
Each phone has its own set of problems. My n8 reboots itself once in a while (about 2 times a month). My bro's galaxy s battery life is pretty suckish. i've seen many iphone 4 users carrying another cheap phone just to make calls.
lets all just get along, isnt that to hard?
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2011LOL, like i said FM transmitters and radios are a joke. The general mass does not use it. Agai... moreMan i like android and I use it of course! As you say is Q1 2012 :) not now, anw i like to try and use everything, i love mac, i hate iphone,i like ipad, i like android and i love my N8, BUT N95 ruled the world man.
Ah, and by the way, after i extracted the droid gingerbread on my pc, my antivirus reported 7.virus spyware files, the email and browser components, but to much antivirus warning allerts, i had to delate all from my pc!
Kim, 29 Jan 2011Man have you ever owned a Symbian phone before? All those who talk bad about Symbian have they... moreLOL, like i said FM transmitters and radios are a joke. The general mass does not use it. Again you obviously have not used Android, you do know android runs perfectly fine on 528MHz right? G1, heard of it? it runs Froyo on a 528MHz cpu just fine. It's not that we need 800MHz+ devices, its the fact that we can, we want it, and manufacturers aside from Nokia hears and listens. Why is it do you think Nokia has said on their roadmap they'll have dualcore mobile phones Q4 2011 or Q1 2012? I thought you guys didn't need over powering devices so why is Nokia planning to release it?
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2011I agry with you, i saw on droid fw, the most libraries is apple copyright and is java coded or... moreno offence but i think the bcm2727 is a better gpu then the one the galaxy s has, i just wonder how the galaxy s would perform with an arm11 cpu? much worse than the n8, and what about an n8 with an 1 ghz omap cpu coupled that with a dedicated bcm2727 gpu. think that would be much beter than the current galaxy s
marc, 29 Jan 2011i cant understand why everybody hates nokia and symbian so much? a couple of years back symbia... moreI agry with you, i saw on droid fw, the most libraries is apple copyright and is java coded or typical java software, just named *.abk instead of *.jar files.
Anonymous, 29 Jan 20111. real multitasking? I've been able to multitask on my android since it's released on G1.
2... moreMan have you ever owned a Symbian phone before? All those who talk bad about Symbian have they use it? Its not the best but the freedom that platform gives you its amazing! Android is in great shape, ios will go down, but Symbian is going up, ask those who bought the N8, how they feel? I own an N8 and its AMAZING, of course i had issues like i never had on 3GS, but ios devices are so stupid :). I hope Nokia sticks with Symbian and improve it, of course i do not want Android on my N8, Nokia just need to stick with a software and just update it again and again.
Of course we need FM radio man,radio is not just for music, I transfer files via Bluetooth all the time, why connect cable for 5-6 MB? LOL. ACTUALLY i never use cable since Dukto is there anw, ever used FM transmeter before? Ever read what engineering means?
Engineering is the discipline, art, and profession of acquiring and applying scientific, mathematical, economic, social, and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely realize solutions to the needs of society.
So come on, i can do everything all of you can to with 680mhz and you are about to buy 2ghz, i buy evolution you buy experiments (joke)
I will not talk about durability and compatibility cause you cant handle it :D

It seems strong but remember it runs at a lower resolution on N8. That basically gives the impression of why it seems smooth, it has less strain put on the GPU than android devices that runs at a higher resolution. Yes the BCM2727 is also CPU dependent, its a SoC hence why its crippled when paired with ARM11 that is in the N8 and every other NOkia device.

[deleted post]What, you want us to educate you now? Go check for yourself. Dont waste peoples time teaching you. Anyway, symbian is useless cos they cant do the fragmentation thing properly, cant steal others tech through patent infringments, dont take others tech and falsly market it as revolutionary even though others had it for years, cant support an integrated aerial cos when it does then it loses signal during normal use and i have to buy an accessorie to make it work that defeats the purpose of having an awesome design etc. Symbian and nokia suck.
