AnonD-62, 13 Feb 2011to all android fans asking"why not android???".answer is: Android already reached it... moreDon't be hasty in saying that Android has reached it's limits. Android's possiblities are endless. ANDROID IS THE FUTURE!
CHECK THIS OUT FROM ANDROID SITE:
Today we're announcing a new version of the Android platform — Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It includes many new platform technologies and APIs to help developers create great apps. Some of the highlights include:
Enhancements for game development: To improve overall responsiveness, we’ve added a new concurrent garbage collector and optimized the platform’s overall event handling. We’ve also given developers native access to more parts of the system by exposing a broad set of native APIs. From native code, applications can now access input and sensor events, EGL/OpenGL ES, OpenSL ES, and assets, as well a new framework for managing lifecycle and windows. For precise motion processing, developers can use several new sensor types, including gyroscope.
Rich multimedia: To provide a great multimedia environment for games and other applications, we’ve added support for the new video formats VP8 and WebM, as well as support for AAC and AMR-wideband encoding. The platform also provides new audio effects such as reverb, equalization, headphone virtualization, and bass boost.
New forms of communication: The platform now includes support for front-facing camera, SIP/VOIP, and Near Field Communications (NFC), to let developers include new capabilities in their applications.
For a complete overview of what’s new in the platform, see the Android 2.3 Platform Highlights.
AnonD-743, 12 Feb 2011Come on Nokia, just get rid of this iOS-like limitations of WP7 and this will be my next phone. (:I agree. And they should modify the UI a alot.
I want the black one!
AnonD-743, 12 Feb 2011Come on Nokia, just get rid of this iOS-like limitations of WP7 and this will be my next phone. (:Agreed. I believe MS is allowing Nokia to change certain parts of WP7 in exchange for their cooperation. If so, I WILL buy their phone. =)
Bedding with M$... Cmon Nokia!!!
Its like you want me to hate you... first you stall taking Symbian into the touch phone era, then you kill off Maemo before it even got off the ground, then you have taken forever with Meego and now this!!!
You know what, I really hope that you choke on this M$ cookie! I hope you fail and I hope you get what you deserve. Im out... you are not getting a dime more from me!!!
Looks promising and great design...but i hope nokia never ever give up with symbian and meego
windows 7 on phones is a big j.o.k.e. this is a very bad decision by nokia
Hm,there is one thing - Nokia is allowed to change the win7 phone UI.And this is a big thing.
to all android fans asking"why not android???".answer is: Android already reached its limits.look whats new comming in every new version?nothing,only UI icon changes.so dont be stupid and dont cry.
nishajbest, 12 Feb 2011Why Windows why not Android? :(Because Nokia dont wanna be one among others. They want to and they have to stick out! Else they wouldnt be seen. + so much fragmention on androiddevices.
This was the best Nokia could do!
I will probably buy a Nokiaphone again. :)
huh?, 12 Feb 2011i dont get your hate for symbian OS i think it is the perfect OS there is and will be and symb... morei agree with you. i don't understand why people call symbian bad? it's just like the popularity of iphone. a lot of people saying it's good that means it's good and just because people say symbian is bad means its bad! when i ask them what's bad in symbian they cannot show a single point apart from the UI. some people like colourful UI but that doesn't mean that symbian is bad! it can do anything that android or ios can do infact better if you consider the battery life.
Nokia + Windows, the leaders meet finally, hope to see something bigger than before.
"A Finnish newspaper today revealed that Elop has lots of Microsoft stocks (actually he's in 7th position!) but not a single Nokia stock!"
"I don't know if it's true or not but I've just read this is not a done deal. Under Finnish company law this deal has to be approved by Nokia's board and it was suggested some of the board are so outraged they don't just want to reject it, they want prosecutions because they believe this is an attempt to facilitate Mircosoft's take-over of Nokia at a knock down price.
It was also suggested Finland's government are getting involved, they have an election coming up and they are concerned that if they just roll-over and allow this to happen the Finnish electorate may well punish them.
Again, I don't know if any of this is real, but I certainly hope so.
Nokia already explained why they won't be using Android, it's too fragmented. You have the Gingerbreads, the Froyos, Eclair etc.
With WinPhone7, Nokia can concentrate on 1 platform, no more incompatible apps.
Nokia must customise WP7 with its own gadgets, not just integrate WP7 any throw the Phone in market. Nokia must keep its easy to use style in WP7 phones.
Come on Nokia, just get rid of this iOS-like limitations of WP7 and this will be my next phone. (:
i dont get your hate for symbian OS i think it is the perfect OS there is and will be and symbian^3 even greater (sorry for my bad english) beside that i played somthing like 4 days with a WIndows phone 7 device and i have to tell you that i missed so much to my nokia...windows phone 7 is way behind symbian and IOS the only OS that is a little better is Android..and is is a little better because of the fact that she have much more developers..i want that some one will tell me why is symbian^3 is so bad? and dont use that pdf or office thing because ther is a program and i am sure that if any one want that program for free he can find it on the net...(and agian sorry for my bad english)
