no matter how much you work on software, it still WEAK --> 680Mhz processor, 256RAM is very insufficient to run smooth & support well for 3D game.
I have my n8, the 3D game in n8 run not well if we take compare to 1Ghz processor phone.
Freakazoid, 29 Mar 2011I disagree. I have a 5230, and it lags so much I almost threw it against the wall. Many time... morei use 5230 with Custom Firmware no lag no hang fast respon. don't ever use original firmware nokia dev team suck
I bought an E72 earlier this year, and it's by far the best phone I have ever owned. Symbian can be confusing to configure, but once complete - is a stable operating system. People complain that Symbian is slow.. have you suffered under the iPhone lately?? I did, and gave mine away. I think the Windows move is a logical business move, but hope that the new OS retains the same functions and features that the Symbianl platform has always offered.
one developer from nokia said that nokia is not going to completely ditch symbian in favor of windows smartphone even after 2012 becoz still symbian is giving nokia huge returns.by the end of 2011 nokia will be manufacturing wp7,s^4,s40,s60v3.3 and meego devices.no s60v5 from 2012.
nokia also has big plans to expand the functionality of s40 particularly multitasking,document support,increasing the codecs for video and audio player.
they just Need a whole UI development. thats it!!!!!!!!!!!!
new homescreen etc
get rid of symbyian, nokia need to commit to either android or windows. symbyian is so outdated
techy-india, 29 Mar 2011i will always support u NOKIA ! :)i agree with u Teachy , Nokia is the best
Well, Nokia is still Number 1 globally so clearly they have been doing things right for the last 20 years! And Apple is down to 6th place now,
way below Android already so it will likely continue going down.
Goodness only knows why Nokia chose to partner with th system that has always been - and still is - at the bottom of the list at only 8% of the
market. MS will certainly have to produce something absolutely amazing to drag them up from bottom place. Let us all hope that they don't drag down the mighty Nokia!
i think it will be a waste to give those high end phone to symbian developer, since their performance is really dissapointing, i think nokia need to think twice about this decision
No matter how long Nokia is going to stretch Symbian platform, it will always less in demand as compare to Android phones.. After all, Android has captured more than half of the market whereas Nokia is still running around with old dated softwares like Symbian which lacks in flexibility.
Coopere, 29 Mar 2011Nokia makes excellent hardware and Symbian was the first smartphone OS. it did what it was sup... moreCome on dude. Its not about who introduced it firsy. Thats why we have the word "INVENTION" man. Its what you make of what you have done. others may have adopted it but they made it better. Innovated it. As for nokia.. nothing.. they do adopt too but they dont make them better! Thats the point, its how you make it of what you have.. remember that. try using an android device men. And duh?! Battery life?! Damn.. you must consult a dictionary man. Look for the word "EFFICIENCY"
WMP7 is not a bad move for Nokia... both company will embrace their success...
WMP7 is one nice OS that can really compete with Android and iOS, unfortunately, they are only equip to the expensive phone....
when this introduce to the market already too late. They products always very slow ... I don't think this can fight android or iphone.
Amamzing how easy it is to forget a faithful servant when another come by with some bling! Android, Apple OS, even Meego are no match for Symbian in all it's forms. Symbian is like the Unix of phone OS's. It is stable and sure, without the ka-ching of these new os's. Maybe, it doesn't come with all the bling and bells but for me, Symbian is the thing. And trust me, in Africa and the rest of the developing world (where the money really is), Nokia and Symbian are trusted brands. Who says people are not holding their breath for the next Nokia with Symbian? I am, and I know a whole multitude who are. Yeah, take your android and apple os and go. I love Symbian and I always will.
simon , i think you are speaking for yourself, nokia is the most affordable phone in the world and it is user friendly, for everything about the iphone and it apps u have to buy while nokia u get them for free , it is not everybody that can afford very expensive phone, nokia remains the world best
