I'm a huge Nokia fan.
I have had a total of 9 Cellular phones...7 of them being Nokia. Nokia will do well in one area and mess up in another area. For intsance, the legendary Nokia 6230 have a loud ringer yet it's loudspeaker during a telephone conversation is very low. Since then, quite a few Nokia phones have quiet ringers and quiet loudspeakers. I have contacted Nokia about this and their silly answer was that Nokia makes different phones for different markets. No sensible answer as if they are robots programmed to say the same thing no matter the complaint. Well they have felt it now with the drop in their market share.
I don't like Blackberry phones but I admire the loudness of their loudspeakers during a call. I can't forget how extremely loud the Blackberry 8320 loudspeaker was. It was so loud it made my ears hurt. Samsung makes good loudspeakers as well.
All my Nokia phones consisted of (in order): Nokia 3310, Nokia 3410, Nokia 3200, Nokia 6230, Nokia 6300, Nokia E51 and currently Nokia E71.
I was thinking about Nokia's real upgrade to the E71, the E6 which was released in summer. I have heard that the ringing and loudspeaker volume is low for this so that was an instant turn off.
Based on GSMArena's review, the Lumia 800 is quiet both in ringing and loudspeaker performance so apparently they still haven't learnt their lesson.
It makes no sense to have the best features in the world if you are going to miss calls due to low ringing volume...which is the PRIMARY reason for having a telephone. Sorry Nokia I have given you enough chances. My next phone WON'T be a Nokia.
What else did Nokia expect? This is a company that released a high-end phone (N9) and then abandoned the platform at launch! Just plain silly. I think Nokia's association with WP is actually curtailing the platform's growth.
I dont know about other but I like WP7. Tiles are little boring but provides better functionality. They are like windows (Actual Windows). You open one n there r whole lot of options n info. Though WP is not as easy or simple like iOS.
I would choose Symbian Belle over it anytime but still its good. If WP adds some more options frm Symbian like USB OTG, HDMI, etc. I will go for it. Also I would like to see some price cut.
I have always been a Nokia fan (over 10 years) but now I am getting Samsung S II with its android. I have lost faith with my last Nokia N97 with no support from Nokia whatsover.If they went for Android instead of WM I would probably stick with them. But I consider WM as dead end as Symbian.
Symbian^4 should release is better replace avkon. Symbian^4 UI project really awesome. better than belle.
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2011I agree, Meego is a much better choice than windows phone 7Yeah, that's good

But i just wanted to say how an N8 would be working with an faster CPU, an if it had a cpu like this it could conquer without problems with the new generation of phones!!

A lot of people out there don't seem to get the picture. Be different and be good at it. Im a huge Nokia fan and currently i'm rolling with the N9, had the N8 and getting one soon again. I know Nokia has been slow compared to the other manufacturers but if you compare Nokia to the rest of them, you'll notice that all the other manufacturers make toys with pretty transtions and cute backgrounds whereas Nokia make PHONES. Phones that take photo's, phones that connects seemlisly, phones that are user friendly. No butterfly's, no cute flowers, just a work of art! The N8 isn't all that pretty, but when I take a photo, the rest of the world can go sleep.

To start off, i had an N8 and to boldly say it, it ran smoother than the SII. And all it needed is 680MHZ (not even 1.2GHZ). Secondly, these two phones can't be compared - the SII is newer than the N8 after all. That's like comparing a 2010 Subaru Impreza 2.0WRX to a 2011 BMW M3 4.0 V8.....
Hello Nokia ,
If you need to get back in the Market , you need to do like Samsung ... I.E. releasing the same phone in 3 flavours (Symbian + Windows + Android) and let the customer choose what he likes.
I like to see N8s in Symbian and N8w in Windows and N8a in Android rather than N8 in Symbian only.
Same hardware in 3 different platforms.
garfield, 04 Dec 2011there was a time when nokia generated craze among cellphone lovers but i m astonished to hear ... moreThe OS is not the problem... Look at N8 CPU, it has 680 MHz single core, while the galaxy s2 has 1,2 GHz dualcore!! N8 - 256MB RAM, G S2 - 1GB RAM!!
Just imagine an N8 with this CPU and 1 GB RAM!!
I've never used a Windows OS phone but I'm told that it is fast and brilliant to use. The only problem with it that I can see is that the interface is SO DAMN UGLY!
Apple phones sell so well because they are 'idiot proof'. If you don't believe me just ask any women why she likes her iphone so much and she will tell you that it is because it is so easy to use. She only has to fire up the screen and everything she wants is there via a simple icon. The WP7 UI just doesn't match it for looks.
Sad, but it's true.
garfield, 04 Dec 2011sir if WP7 Was so much of a success then why the hell ios and android are still dominating the... moreN8 still sells like a hot cake the sales men are sales men not a tech expert can you tell me how many iphone 3GS and 4 have been sold after the launch of 4GS thats the difference nokia makes Nokia phones remains in market much longer than other brands N8 sales were slow but it is still in the market If Nokia have released this phone with Belle OS than it might have changed the game and N8 was not an iPhone killer but it do killed its camera
Sun Down, 04 Dec 2011Try WP7 Mango first before coming to that conclusion. It handily beats out Android and iOS. Pe... moreReally, wp7 apps cover everything??
Then I'll definitely buy a wp7 phone next. Could you suggest me a proper file manager or a downloader or a universally compatible transfer utility from the wp7 market place.
Sad state that the phones which are not android meego or symbian are being termed "smartphones."
