I can live with Android, I would much rather use it than iOS for example. Still, I'm getting N9 next since it seems to do things right.

Multitasking:Not realy necesary
App Switcher: does what it is suposed to do in a very simple way so no problem there
App Integration: No problems there
Fragmentation: do not see any problems there either
Maybe you tried an older version of Android but recent versions do not have said problems.Still it is your opinion and you are entitled to it
Ashura, 24 Jun 2011What do you mean by "general behavior" exactely?The multitasking, app switcher, way the apps are integrated (or the lack of), so many problems with fragmentation etc.
Have you looked at MeeGo UI? It's simple, elegant and powerful.
I would much rather have MeeGo with android apps.
I don't really like general behavior of Android. It is slowly improving though, so maybe Google will get it right in few more versions.

Ashura, 24 Jun 2011Are you mad?You probably never used those phones before in your life.I have used an Xperia PLA... moreCannot tell you I used these phones, but what I'm actually saying is true. A friend's SE Xperia play tore in half; one half the screen, the other the game buttons. Then I saw a dead Samsung Galaxy half open on one side at a phone service place. The guy there told me the story.
So that's how I can tell these phones are cheap. (Not the price, but the made.)
Never one should fall on imtations & copycat things that comes after somebody have already come with.
If Sony Ericsson & Samsung is ruling & gaining on ANDROID Smartphones which is 20% of top elite niche population segment; whereas NOKIA's core strength is into feature phones, which they can always stick on to the rest 80% mass population segment(who are not that much educated techies & IT Savy)
nokia could of been the best phone maker. if they had used common. the N8 is an awesome camera phone. if they had put android on it. well we see an awesome device. as it is. just a slow smartphone with a hald decent camera.
shame on you nokia.
my advice is N8 on android
Then you would have the best selling smartphone on the plany. i would buy one tomorrow.

Ashura, 24 Jun 2011Cheap phone companies?Are you insane?You call the Xperia Play cheap?You call the Galaxy series... moreYEAH! Sony Ericsson XXXperia and Samsung Craplaxy are made of cheap materials. Low-quality materials = Cheap phones.
Try dropping these phones from your pocket - Start looking for your SIM card on the floor.
nokia gone mad...
@ first they tied up with intel for make meego platform. but after few months, nokia left meago & hugged Microsoft & said- we are going to make the world's first class smartphone.
2ndly they rejected google's android+nokia approach.
Now meeGO is going to launch!
And added Myriad Alien Dalvik support for android.
what the hell is going on??????
dont b excite with nokia's concepts. really time waste
So, Nokia could have had me as a customer if they made this Android phone.
[deleted post]I used a Symbian phone before moving to Android. My impression of the Symbian UI is that it wasn't made for touch screens. Everything is layered in folders and it takes a while before you get used to which folder contains which item you want. Eventually, I spent a lot of time reorganising my folders to be more intuitive for me. Even so, sometimes I cannot remember where things are, especially items I rarely use. I ended up having to go into multiple folders to find things sometimes.
Android has a flat structure for its app tray and I find it easier to find things I rarely use just by scrolling through the list of icons. They are alphabetical, so if I know what it is called, I can find it easily. For apps and other objects that I use often, I place them on my home screens. Overall, I find it easier and faster to get to things on my Android phone than on my Symbian phone.
