Nokia launched already a dead phone with meego... So just continue same suiciding path... Soon will be only history... Thanks God, Nokia word R.I.P.
If NOKIA completely lives Symbian for windows they are making a wrong decision. Because windows phone is not theirs it belong to Microsoft and to me is not the best platform, it lacks a lot of features.
Who cares, symbian is dead slow even with belle FP1.
saw its new browser too... It is very laggy n unresponsive compared to even low end androids like galaxy Y.
Windows phone is awesome... The most smoothest os i have ever used or seen... Browser is butter smooth... Im more interested in windows phone 8.....
Nokia made a wise decision by partnering with microsoft. I think symbian should be used in future digital cameras.
Symbian's major limitation is screen resolution.
Why then they will continue paying Accenture?
Their contract is for at least 2-3 more years.
I think the rumor is wrong.
There is new OS that Symbian users can choose - Windows Phone 7. The problem is, this system is done according to Microsoft point of view - closed system, MS is your god, you have to use MS software, MS is still your god, limitations, more limitations, there are only limitations, limitations are your gods too...

so you are pushing people not to buy 808 and lean towards sgs3 !! clever .. Epic fail for such a manager !
These days Nokia looks like a two-headed giant, and his heads have fallen into the deep contradict with each other. :-(

Now its official that ELOP does not want 808 be a success.I am just thinking what will be Elop's next move.
To launch Lumia pureview with WP8?
WP never was/will be camera friendly OS and with nokia's current workforce it could take almost 2 years to launch a pureview lumia device. till that time i could use android(i am hoping that WP8 will not be as crap as WP7)
I can't belive it!!! Nokia wont be able to make succesful flagships by Windows. Who will buy the 808 after these shocking news? It can't be true... I hope this is fake...
Anonymous, 23 May 2012why nokia even bother to make nokia 808 purevieuw, this is running symbian, and as you can rea... moreThe 808 was never meant to save Symbian (that's pretty much impossible at this point)
The 808's prime purpose is to introduce and demonstrate the pureview technology.
Nokia began developing pureview a few years ago when Symbian was still a competitor, they decided to introduce it now using Symbian rather than wait until they had adapted the technology to WP.
It's time to put Symbian to bed now, as even with the improvements brought in by 'belle' it's still a vastly inferior OS to it's opposition.
loooool! elob´p is trying it so hard to ditch everything for the windowsphone! he t´did the same to kill N9 and meego on release and he's doing the same with smbian now that 808 may do some major sellings!man he's so loyal to his former employers, microsoft!
First Meego, and now Symbian!!! You are the 1st person in the world to kill two mobile OS.
(it cold 3 OSes,may be meltemi will be dead before its birth)
