This makes me wonder if all these devices will face problems or work on Windows 8 Apollo ?
Anyway, I trust Nokia and everyone knows that Nokia's hardware is the best among all Phone's manufactures, but Nokia didn't join Android because they liked to be unique (they are already unique). However, I don't think that making a pact with Microsoft was the correct choice. Why doesn't Nokia produce their own OS like Apple? they have the ability with their huge researches centers and scientists. Why did they kill Symbian and Meego? I don't have any problem with Symbian and millions of people like it , especially Nokia Belle.
Please Nokia, Fire Elop .. He is destroying you. I think if Nokia had joined Android , we wouldn't have heard today about galaxy or Nexus or Note. Samsung is really so lucky.
Thank you Mr.Stephan Elop.
boosook, 23 May 2012Now I want to hear again the voice of WP7 fanboys saying that Android is heavy and slow... the... morethe ipod touch has a 800mhz processor and 256mb ram, but its running all the apps and games in the app store, the low spec android phones may not be able to run all apps and games,but atleast these small apps such as skype can easily run in those phones......nokia and windows are the only failures in the market today
[deleted post]Man get your facts straight, Lumia 610 is dumphone and band one on top of that. Horrible battery life, no multitasking, no real OS features, it even lacks basic features which can be found on the cheapest dumbphones. It can't even run Skype. :D What a overpriced POS.
i just can said , skype design worse geting worse.
i still remember i can use skype in wm5 . it's can talk as well when i using Dopod 838.
all i can said is the worse function add by skype kill skype itself.
i dont think last time have 800ghz +256RAM phone.
boosook, 23 May 2012Now I want to hear again the voice of WP7 fanboys saying that Android is heavy and slow... the... morei think u havent used wp7. See ur's friend wp7 or go to a mobile shop and try it, i am symbian fan to begin with, later android, now ios and wp7 but u know what wp7 is fastest os alive out there not even ios. It doesnt even stuck for a second and even lumia 610 of lower specifications.. its so fluid that ur mind will block, hey i am not here as a fanboy, just go and check and if i was wrong, no that cant be possible so please chect that os, android even in s3 stucks( i mean it doesnt stuck but lags a bit, that was even said by verge and gizmodo), so please its a request, check wp7 and then critisize it, i too am crisized it first, but i changed after experiencing ig, so that's gona happen to u, see ya.. Gud luck.. And llng livw windows phone and waiting for wp8..
Much as I hate to admit it, this is a FAIL!
Nokia has a contract with Microsoft.
Microsoft owns Skype.
How hard can it be to optimize your own products?
Its like saying Macs can't run FaceTime.
Skype is not really design good enough for mobile devices.not the processor or Ram to be blame.
i using Android 2.3 , it's make my Sony X10i keep on hot , i saw the setting is after 15mins turn to offline. this is worse ever setting. whatsapp is go sleep mode, viber is go sleep mode but skype is always online or go offline.its consume my battery 50% within few minute.
i never recommend any mobile device using skype.
SS, 23 May 2012Nokia 700 and Nokia 701 with Belle PR1 are already just as smooth...Yes it dose but still not smother like windows phone os ! The web browser on windows phone os is great :-)
With this, Nokia is not gaining any trust from customers and/or app devs. How can we expect good apps like HD games if it can't efficienly run a very simple app like Skype? Specs is not an excuse, cuz there are a lot of android phones which has lower specs than this (like Galaxy Y) that can run even some HD games.
but if it were not a hw problem?
if it were to avoid operator/carrier boycott??
Somewhere Tomi Ahonen is laughing
but in nokia symbian s60v5 series, the skype in my phone did not work i don't know but why it not work
Anonymous, 23 May 2012And nokia fanboys says single core is enough for Nokia. Can't even run Skype? Pathetic. Triple... moreYes single core is enough you should check nokia n95 with single core 332mhz skype working great :-) without any problem
Anonymous, 23 May 2012I wish Nokia kicks out MS and start working on Qt and Maemo5 based Nokia Belle and MeeGo OSs a... moreThe can work with Qt maemo but problem is applications games :-( on windows phone os you can found whatever you want :-) ! Look i used nokia lumia 710 it is smooth :-) and easy to use - hope nokia's next symbian version will be smooth like windows phone 7.5
How much extra would it have cost them to put in 1Ghz CPU and 512mb ram? Next to nothing!
Now the ppl who got a 610 is getting a slap in the face!
