[deleted post]atleast its not buggy,resoursce hog, power hungry nor it steals your personal data
Listen nokia are weak, the phones are dry SIMPLE AS...lol
looooooooooooooooooool. that killed it.
oh symbian anna users will loose the carla and donna... but planned updates r coming at almost end of the year 2012... so may b the anna users replace it by that time...
donna is multiple cores.. may b it is reserved for the very high end devisec...
and the confirmed nokia n8 succesoor may be running the updated belle.. or if it is coming with carla then all the symbian^3 and anna devices may get carla..
this is my calculations.... there r several things like this.. may b all the carla devices may be dual cores so it can hav the donna...
i like nokia phones because of their durability and really simple UI. plus belle update is awesome! i like it!
what is Symbian?
Android: cookies & sweets names
Symbian: female names
oh c'mon Nokia..
It doesn't bother me a single iota that the next generations of Symbian^3 might not be available for my N8. Belle is fantastic, and i'm certain that will be available for it, otherwise there wouldn't be leaks.
I've had my N8 13 months now, it still has the original screen cover on it, and works as well as they day i got it. I'm happy to wait three to six months for a successor to it as it's been a joy to use. That's what i've loved about Nokia .. they might get slammed by iOS/Android fans, but they don't create charisma, excitement and fun like Nokia do. That is just as important as the tech side of things in my opinion. I'm sure this comment will get trolled to death, but i don't care.
You forgot to mention N8 successor will get the Dual Core update. Which mean the next N8 will be dual core symbian with improve camera.
symbian belle is best os ...!
first Symbian "Anna" then "Belle" next "Carla" and last "Donna" oh common after A,B,C and D i think there are 22 alphabets in English who said Symbian is dead it will leave till mobile phone leaves :-p
maybe till then they change their mind and CEO,anyways no biggie they dont keep updating till years we are glad to get belle for n8 it is gr8.
Too bad not all Symbian 3 phones could update to Carla though I understand one reason behind it. I mean by the time Carla rolls out, the c7 c6-01, n8 and other original s3 devices will feel dated and lack enough modern hardware. I believe Nokia will release a new range of Carla devices like what they did with the introduction of belle (603, 700, 701) so as to encourage the original symbian 3 buyers to upgrade their phones. That seems fair to me.
symbian belle itself is an awesome OS. Carla and Donna are definately going to be a hit. Most people will accept the fact that, Symbian is very efficient in handling resources. Even Belle with a 1 GHz single core can do better than others 1.2-1.5 GHz dual cores. Who knows, Symbian may come out as a winner in future.
im gonna miss symbian
New Symbian update!!!...but "not for everyone"
New Siri update!!!...but "not for everyone"
and they still bragging about the updates of Android, wow...hypocrites...
No Symbian Carla for my N8 :(
This is really sad :|
It's so wrong to abandon Symbian!
