ADN, 09 Feb 2011I promise that i will keep supporting you symbian for ever yes we will never leave symbian os , it is best os
i'm not a nokia fan but i am really really happy that new CEO of nokia is clever and admit nokia faults
i hope that they go for meego and winmo(i love android more) and leave symbian for their low end phones
because if nokia go for android then there wont be any competition for android
also nokia should use better processors for their phone
arm 11 in 2011 in not acceptable at all
and in the end nokia should hire some better designers for theirs phones because nokia phones are a bit bulky and looks old
and nokia has loyal fans they know that there are better phones in the market but because they love nokia they go for nokia!
i hope that one day nokia come back to 2005-2006 days!
kyuubiflame, 09 Feb 2011well nokia is working on the new UI for symbian and will be applied very shorty as soon as 2.1... moreWhile Nokia is still working on these supposed improvements, Android and iOS already has a good UI and provides a good user experience for years. What is currently available from Nokia is still no match for what has been out by Google and Apple for quite a while. All of Nokia's promises of better improvements for Symbian or the awesome MeeGo is still vapourware.
Any thing happen .but i love Nokia because my first handset was a nokia.

Thats abit tooooooo late to realise all -O- this, people aren't gana set down and wait for ya, I'm not, because I am due for a new device, and I was waiting for these arrogant Nokia people to come up with something close to I phone or Android, I had my eye on the e 7, but what do they run on it!! Symbian again witha a slightlu faster cpu, thats just poor man.
when your propblem is an attitude probplem like you mentiond in the memo, it is more than serious and customers don't care who is the most arrogant, they care about who has the best device so they can own it NOW and be proud of it.
Android platform offers the best innovations. The 100,000 applications on the android market is a proof of that. One key of success of android is that 70% of its applications are free FROM its android market. Not from shady websites that puts "bugs and viruses" on their called "free" applications. Thats a really total "turn on" on its consumers.
While apple also offers the top quality,and experience. BUT in my opinion,"jailbreaking" is also a part why iphone is booming on the top. Here in the philippines when you see an iphone,it is usually jailbroken. And in the internet,you can notice how "free" games,videos,ringtones,etc popping out of nowhere. Jailbreaking becomes one magnet to boost iphone sales although apple does not approve of it.
Come on! Apple is like a super strict father over concern to his daughter. Man...
Phones nowadays is not just made for calls. It is almost anything you can think of. From entertainment,social, business,education, locally or internationally.
[deleted post]Obviously this stephen Elop that said this comment must be an imposter! He is probably a ninja that is wearing a stephen Elop face mask because Nokia is so awesome! it r bestttttt...
LOL fanboys are so delusional I bet that is the exact conclusion they came to after reading this article.

I hate iphone just because i don't like steve jobs but i admit it's a good phone (not perfect for me because it lacks many basic function i need), i hate BB simply because i don't like the idea of wasting money only for BBM and i hate it even more because my friends keep ignoring me when they play BBM, BB make the close seems far and the far seems close.
kyuubiflame, 09 Feb 2011symbian3 is fine
if they just make a new UI just like how MS did with windows phone 7I think the point a lot of people are missing is that Iphone is no better than say N8 or HTC desire, what makes it succeed is the user experience. A lot of people over analyse these things if you look at how Stevie does his marketing, he never even talks about CPU's or RAM none of that yet still sells more.
goron goron, 09 Feb 2011it is a common effect due to desperado and hard to accept the reality. i used to be n5800xm p... moreis that for me? or for the nokia fans.. if it's for me, i'm a no-brand fan. i choose the most profitable for me, that's it. currently using my google nexus S and 5800xm. 5800 was good in its own time, but i can't stand on only able to run opera and ebuddy at the same time, and they still crash sometimes.
Saryu, 09 Feb 2011i just read it all the way.. sigh.. is it your strategy or elop strategy ? why are you the one... moreit is a common effect due to desperado and hard to accept the reality.
i used to be n5800xm proud owner, and i really wonder why every symbian fanboy always saying "its only the UI ugly, but the core is perfect"
but the fact, that OS dragging nokia down. hard to custom to meet modern usage, the fact that the mobile tech moving so fast with iOS dan android still not waking you up? right?
its not nokia worker slacking works and playing iphone games that made symbian hard to compete, it is the OS it self the main problem.
if the core is so perfect bla bla bla than why it failed to run most apps?
why there are only few developer made apps for symbiyem?
why symbiyem only good with it stock function?
is it really a smartphone if its only for call and text??
RDP? failed and even if you did it, it'll be lag like hell
how bout augmented reality? is it really works on symbiyem?
did you ever really compare your "smartphone" side by side with ip4,samsung wave and SGS/droidX and try to do the same things as they OSes do??
just dont brag about built quality,voice clarity and megapixel please its not about hardware, compare what symbian OS can do vs other smartphone platform OS can perform and tell your true opinion.
i dont know what the smartphone described for you. as far as i taste it,symbian OS far from smartphone truly meaning,it even loose with the slow sluggish winmo 6.1 in terms of functionality and still you try to defend it as "perfect"? and please dont compare about hardware, im talking about the OS. if it really as perfect as your imagination than nokia will not suffered and other symbiyem manufacture will not leave it behind.
i dont like the idea for nokia using android or wp7,it will ruin their name.
and i dont hate nokia (i have no reason for doing that too)
i just want you to wake up, its not your duty trying to protect them,
they grow because your money, and because of that you all deserve more as a customer.
meego just a promise, sym^3 is a buying time strategy.
you can see BB with it playbook, design new OS QNS from scratch and its ready now, so what about miigo??
you all the fanboy still believe it will be awesome super cool triple great never beatable ultra incredible forever number one the best ever created??
please, symbian fanboy think it with clear mind and give it a try for other OS, dont judge them because of the manufacture or the country it came from, put your fanaticism aside and be honest with your heart.
it just a phone,it just an OS,it just a brand no need to be fanatic and blind and it will save your own hard earn cash. wake up you deserve more than just call, text and megapixel battle.
I was thinking about getting an N8 for it's camera. Not since the N82 and the SE camera phones with Xenon has any camera phone impressed me.
I'm not so sure now after playing with an Android and having owned an iphone. Sure Symbian 3 is nice enough and does everything, but I think we've been spoiled with easy-to-use Operating systems.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2011Okay Mr Professor you marketing genius you who thinks Nokia don't employ people good enough to... moresymbian3 is fine
if they just make a new UI just like how MS did with windows phone 7
he, 09 Feb 2011thanks for ur information.
I am frm INDIA.
Here in india nokia is best brand for 5 straight ... more/theindonesiatoday.com/people-headline/7216-nokia-losses-market-share-in-indonesia.html
post above stated nokia market share in Indonesia has decreased rapidly.
Still Nokia is the 1st manufacture in indonesia, followed closely by Nexian (it's a local manufacture, re-branded phone from china), the third is Samsung, huawei if fourth, fifth is HT mobile, sixth is SE, LG is seventh. While if all chinese phone combined is easily overwhelmed nokia market share.
All Indians love Nokia. I used nokia, motorola, Lg, samsung and sony mobiles so far and recently tried iphone 4 also. I'm happy with nokia. Nokia is the number one brand in india. Its the fact. We may use other brands also, but, nokia is preferred. I strongly say 'hey, nokia.. Come on.. You're there and you'll be there forever.'
