Such a nice camera, wish there was a compact photo camera using this technology. Nice phone too, but so expensive.
If this writer knows so much about the industry why not
be a consultant to the manufacturers and get paid to tell them what they're doing right or wrong. I'm sure
there would be more money doing that than writing a
Nokia should make a newer version of E-series, wether runs on Belle/Carla or W.Phone, after making such montrous camera phone.
Their bussines phone was good, especially in their build and hardware, though BB is way more popular, but their plasticity is beyond E-series metal design.

BADA doesn't have as much apps as Android or a promised support forever. But nobody calls it dying OS. People still hope that it will merge with Tizen or become Open Sourced to survive. Why not have same kind of hopes with Symbian? 4 years is a very long time and Nokia's policy with Symbian may change. Even if support is stopped that is not going to stop your device. Buy a mobile if you like a phone and OS today and if you think that you will like it for 6 months or upto a year. Don't think much about the distant future. Nobody knows it.
Prosperity, 12 May 2012The decision was NOT made because of public demand - U.S. consumers are hardly aware of Symbia... moreDo you think that Elop would risk to sell 808 to US to kill Lumia sells??? I don't think, they will sell it because people want it! I will never buy Lumia because of Windows Phone on it that has a LOT of issues, is UGLY and not mature! Insteed, I will buy 808 PureView for sure, Symbian is WAY BETTER THAN WP!!!

Some will purchase it, but it will not sell well. It's niche, priced more than it's worth, and it has Symbian.

Poor Lumia sales? AT&T refutes your claim.
