Rafiii, 10 May 2011It doesn't look at all like what Nokia showed in China. This pure fake.Nothing is final yet so anything can change but at least we got an idea of what changes will come.
AnonD-291, 10 May 2011That video shows nothing. Thats just a 2D game that runs fine just because of low resolution o... moreQt has not been implemented system-wide on Symbian. It is Qt which will bring Symbian on par with other OSes in terms of UI execandiness and speed.
AnonD-3575, 10 May 2011i agree, just look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpGHgkKgQ3o it clearly shows... moreThat video shows nothing. Thats just a 2D game that runs fine just because of low resolution of N8. Try running your browser or navigation or do some heavy multitasking and then talk about lagging.
[deleted post]Why are they predicting 20% for WP in a few years then? That doesn't sound very dead to me.
vasra, 10 May 2011Doesn't look very different apart from the widget sizes.
What the phones need is much more ... moreAndroid bloatware means that it cannot do without a super fast processor. Symbian is much more efficient and less of a memory hog.
There's nothing slow about my N8. Only full Flash is slow. And who honestly buys a phone solely for full Flash? Data streaming video constantly through it, costs a fortune, and can easily go over your fair usage agreement.
Flash is only useful for watching porn on the go, or getting your browser hijacked.
AnonD-733, 10 May 2011God i hate Symbian, Nokia should stop wasting time with this garbageReminds me of my N96 days, was horrible.
ANNA is not even out for eveyone, yet they are talking about BELLE. Stupid NOKIA creators...yet i am in love with my n8 & really proud to have one....they should get the updates to uses a lot faster than they currently are.
Why are we still discussing symbian? Symbian is dead, Nokia is replacing it by WP7. Who cares what the new UI looks like, it has no future...

Aaron, 10 May 2011Gigahertz and multicore CPUs are only required by bloated systems like Android, iOS and Window... morei agree, just look at this video
it clearly shows that n8 isnt any slower, even faster than android
even the reviews agree that the ui is snappy (read it here on gsmarena)
so, that nonsense is just a result of misinformation
vasra, 10 May 2011Doesn't look very different apart from the widget sizes. What the phones need is much more ... moreGigahertz and multicore CPUs are only required by bloated systems like Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Symbian is a very efficient OS that relies on software optimization for the most part. When the Qt-based UI already kicks in, the UI will be as fluid and fast just like the other OSes.
So many promisses. But takes so long to almost never deliver. Something tells me we won't be seeing this homescreen till Q1~Q2 of 2012..
