Anon, 31 Jan 2012As a web developer, I can tell you now that android is dead unless google begin to standardize... moreSymbian 3 development support till 2016.. maybe a year or two more for bug fixes and other stuff...
so, atleast 5-6 years more...
5-6 years is good enough for me to keep my loyalty toward Symbian today......
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2012Great job by Nokia for planning to release the update simultaneously to all Symbian S^3 device... moreAndroid phnes are nt only fragmented interms of OS but also intrms of cpu manufactrs. Tegra 3 games cant be played on other. Poor...
ace nightrex, 31 Jan 2012why c7 is not to get the update of nokia belle and other divises are will get the belle update... moreEven C7 will get update as said earlier..by the way why didn't u see the list on the official site???
Great job by Nokia for planning to release the update simultaneously to all Symbian S^3 devices. Now compare this to all the other Android devices where the manufacturers left them to rot with the older, laggy and buggy versions of Android. While iOS, WP7 and Symbian are standardized and stable, Android is a cluttered and clunky mess overall.
why c7 is not to get the update of nokia belle and other divises are will get the belle update?its not fare nokia plz reply nokia,
As a web developer, I can tell you now that android is dead unless google begin to standardize the platform. Fortunately/Unfortunately I think they'll do precisely this once the new Motorola emerges.
P.S Belle is a lot more stable than android, but sadly I think Nokia is likely to kill S3 off after Donna, at which point, the only updates people receive will be for bug fixes
A smartphone requires not only that the phone is smart but you also! Android works best for people who are not strangers to Linux, if you are not there are no limit in the system, only the phone. Nokia have excellent hardware where the limit is not the system either - it is you. Apple have usually three limits (why Apples marketshare can never exceed 20%: you, the system and the hardware. Don´t talk about people you don´t know like "the Symbian owners must be disappointed". Do you know them all? I am certanily not disappointed having Nokia N8 / Symbian Anna. It is not the best choise but the best choise available. To me. Because I am smart enough to buy the best hardware available. And smart enought to transform the software to the best available also. Because Symbian (and even more Android) lets you. If you can. Can you?
thefraggot, 31 Jan 2012As a symbian user for last 10 ys i would like it to develope even more. Carla n donna with swi... moresame here. sure symbian has its flaws, but nothing to turn my back against it. i am sure the next 2 iterations will bring in more features. unfortunately, they plan to phase out this OS after. i hope new models in carla will come out before i replace my c6-01.
Rajan rao, 31 Jan 2012android is best os not boaringMost people choose the system they are happy with. I chose the N8 'cause I don't like the Apple ideology and found Android more a hash of ideas in constant need of tweaks (called customisations) to be usable. That the N8 has been given a new lease of life, first with Anna, now soon with belle, it's just a real bonus. I've been happy with the Anna update and hope Belle will be just as good. Should Android or IOS be worried? I think not. People will always advocate one OS over another and it's always down to personal choice. S^3 has good core features and my N8 runs very well which I don't really want to trade for any other just now. As long as my N8 still works, I'll be staying with S^3.
aku, 30 Jan 2012buying nokia c7 was the biggest mistake really it sucks not only with hardware 680mhz processo... moredude, you just gotta download the latest update to anna 25.008 and you´re done. no more hangs, freezes or bizarre reboots. go ahead and try.
Nokia rest in peace.will soon bury my N8 soon since it is not even worth a Nokia 1100. Frequent restarts and totally faulty device sucks.
Shameless Nokia Fans don't compare Nokia with Android Platform since Nokia doesn't have even the lowest of standard to compete with Android.Better don't waste money on Nokia make use of it by paying Google and Android.
When world moves move along otherwise you will be left alone.Bye.I said what i had to say.
Myself OLD NOKIA FAN BUT NOT ANY MORE.Now using Nexus.Believe me it is just awesome.
Rajan rao, 31 Jan 2012ur ryt dude bcoz ma first phn was nokia 6680,,,,and it was a great phn of ma lifei think that phone was the first with front facing camera
As a symbian user for last 10 ys i would like it to develope even more. Carla n donna with swipe UI will be the best os. But this elop , we can do nthing about him
thefraggot, 31 Jan 2012symbian is the greatest os in the history of smartphones. Bcoz of elop it is going down. Imagi... moreur ryt dude bcoz ma first phn was nokia 6680,,,,and it was a great phn of ma life
nokia should release phn with android os;;;;bt still symbian is good,,,
symbian is the greatest os in the history of smartphones. Bcoz of elop it is going down. Imagine an os which is going to be dead in few yrs is selling 70 millions in a yr, with only 1 manufacturer.
