Anonymous, 28 Mar 2011symbian is going to die out in the end ..so what the hell will make ( as a consumer ) by a dev... moreBetter hardware? What for example? At the N8 price tag, there's no other phone with better hardware, tell me other phone with the N8 price that have AMOLED screen, monstruous camera, USB On-the-go, HD recording and playback, alluminium body... However, if you think that better hardware is simply a faster CPU, you know nothing about hardware...
Also take a look at the C6-01, it's a cheap midrange device with awesome hardware and build quality, HD video recording, ClearBlack AMOLED display, Pentaband 3G, Bluetooth 3.0, USB On-the-go and alot of other things that you don't find even on High-end phones.
So most S^3 devices worth the price.
About the E7, I agree that it's extremelly overpriced...
symbian good but not a speed phone-' c7 processor 600mhz 256 mb ram-Rs. 18000-' lg optimus one android os processor 600mhz 512 mb ram- Rs. 12000- ' samsung s5570 android os processor 600mhz 384 mb ram- Rs. 9000- 2003 to 2009 i used nokia but today i go ANDROID more example!- but plz thik Nokia is the best no?
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2011symbian is going to die out in the end ..so what the hell will make ( as a consumer ) by a dev... moreiOS and Android are also going to die eventually or do you think they will last forever?
Nokia has said they will support the Symbian platform as long as people still buy phones.
So unless your planning to keep your phone forever, I think your safe in buying one in the next few years.
vasra, 28 Mar 20111st: Symbian sucks, it's the burning platform.
2nd: All of our future smart phones will be WP... moreNokia never said that would abandon Symbian. You should stop reading these biased american websites... since the Microsoft patnership announcement Nokia said that would continue with Symbian support.
So all your observation makes no sense.
Android is the way forward. Symbian isn't worth the effort, if Nokia won't support it, why should we?
i do welcome the updates and the new designs since i am an owner of the c7, and i have no problem for the future of symbian since i think none of us has kept a smartphone for more than a year...
and the future is for Windows, as they currently control the computers software market they will do in mobile phones and nokia will be on top.
thats my opinion
Droid Rampage, 28 Mar 2011Those icons looks too girly and it's like little candies.Hey, you know, they kinda do look like candy. Maybe that's the route that Nokia is taking now.
Nokia = Candy UI
Google = Desert UI
Anyway, When can I expect a Meego Device Nokia? If you can't supply the info, my support will cease and I will start supporting Intel.
Great Now answer this question Nokia, when is the First Nokia Meego device going to release? I just read about Harmattan and it seems to be a downer but BRING ME MEEGO!!! I will not wait forever (Which is Nokia's Main Problem of waiting too long to release devices). Great about the Font stuff and Great about Symbian 3 but when can I expect a Meego Device from Nokia? I may go Full Intel if Nokia can't get it done fast enough.
1st: Symbian sucks, it's the burning platform.
2nd: All of our future smart phones will be WP
3rd: We'll phase out Symbian in c. 2 years
4th: (panic mode) Ooops, we'll keep offering updates to Symbian
5th: (more panic mode) Symbian is kinda still here, it's still alive, more than 150M will still ship
6th: (even more panic mode) Nah, we'll keep releasing Symbian phones, untill, well, untill you stop buying them. Please trust us
Nokia has zero credibility at this point.
I won't touch a Symbian phone nor a WP phone, until they work and I know what the true road map is.
Till then, it's Android for me. For better or worse. At least the road map is clear and the updates are frequent and free (if you don't pick a sucky US carrier, but a real phone straight from the mfg).
symbian is going to die out in the end ..so what the hell will make ( as a consumer ) by a device with Symbian^3 ? what? .. wen i have android and ios on the market allready ..and with the money that i have to pay for a nokia e7 or n8 ( nokia symbina 3 flagships ) ..i can buy an android based smartphone.. better virtual store better hardwear ..etc .
symbian is the first mobile os created by mankind (created by psion for organiser in 1980). It would be a shame to dissapear like this after 30 years of world domination
Nice to see things improving around for nokia pure, they might not look perfect considering the Android era but it's a good sign for symbians.
At this point i dunno if Nokia fans should be happy ...i mean its been all talks so far and well summer ??? which or whose summer geographically ? well i dont suppose we have to buy N8 now n then wait for this update which would eventually have some bug fixin updates ...so am guessing (being optimistic) atleast 6 more months by the time PR3 is fully funtional...Android is improving their UI and OS at a staggering pace ...you think while nokia is working on this so called update (features expected which Android and IOS already have) Android and IOS will sitting around doing nothing ...Nokia eally needs to pull its socks up and stop dissapointing its users ...
The wait is killing me. This did not answer the MOST important question: When can we expect the freaking PR 2.0 update? EXACT DATE!
