Nekko, 23 May 2012Nokia 808 is born legend. No other phones will trump it for years to come. Despite no major up... moreAre you kidding?!? Performance wise it's no better than what is on the market already, let alone being burdened with a dead OS! The only thing it does better is it's camera, and if you was that bothered about a camera you'd buy a stand-alone for 1/4 of the price that will perform as well if not better!
This is dad news. Belle FP1 is so much better than both Windows Phone and Android ICS. Tried all of them already. And Symbian have the potential to be even better if only they don't kill it. Well, I guess Nokia is so fucked up now. It's not the same good old Nokia that we used to love anymore. It's Microsoft's puppet now. anyways, I'll still be buying the 808 PureView when it launches in my country. The phone doesn't die when software support ends. Belle FP1 is perfect already so it doesn't need more updates. Can't wait to get an 808!!!
bobbybriggs, 23 May 2012f_ck symbian? but what about ur precious Vertu that u want to waste all ur "earned" ... morevertu can run even on s40 series like the all its candy bar models, i do not care. you do not buy a vertu for performance. personally i consider the best model from vertu the signature s dragon, with no camera and symbian,just pure talk.
Nokia 808 is born legend. No other phones will trump it for years to come. Despite no major updates for Symbian, at least it is perfectly usable without any problems. Well, who needs major updates anyway if the phone is already working fine. For instance "Yay i have updated to Ice Cream Sandwich.. Wow.. Look at these new improvement.. Fascinating!" After a few days it will be the same smartphone you use for calling, texting, taking pictures with those 8MP cameras, surfing and all. Get it?
Listen GSMArena and everyone here,I just got a leaked News from an important source in Nokia that said : Nokia will announce its new Operating System By the Event of Nokia World in the next few months and they will surprise everyone by their new unique OS.. I have several evidences and if GSMArena wants to know, contact me.
So what if they're about to bring out the 808 and the OS will be cancelled before release, look and what they did to the N9, cancelled Meego on the day of release. Sounds like Nokia is quickly headed down the plug hole. I personally can't stand the WP7 UI as i'm sure many others do. It'll be a shame to see a company that was once top of the market go the way of the dodo because desk jockeys care more about signing contracts for money rather than providing handsets that people want to buy.
im pretty sure that this nokia executive who told symbian will not be continued anymore was paid by rival companies which was threatened by pureview. GO 808! we still believe in you!
Matheus Saar, 23 May 2012That's so stupid! I don't think they'll kill symbian, with the 808 flagship just announced! Th... moreThey did this with MeeGo and N9 remember?
Seriously this company is such a mess
SCULA, 23 May 2012f_ck symbian and meego. i had nokia n9. beautiful, but windows is much more beautiful. symbian... moref_ck symbian? but what about ur precious Vertu that u want to waste all ur "earned" money on?
all efforts into WP? how? because is not their OS!!!
come on the salvation is SYMBIAN not WP!!!
symbian rulez: multitasking for years, low resource demand, great battery
I don't want my smartphone not to be mobile anymore... with iOS/Android/WP have to find a plug continuously.
I will keep my symbians close until my devices will run... N8 E7 and onTheWay 808

We were taken for a ride.
I believe its just a rumour , if its true ,i ill never buy a smartphone & stay with my precious 701 only . curse u se(f)lop , one day Nokia will be sold to msoft too. Samsung manages bada which got opera yesday ,yet Nokia can't manage symbian ,which is ecosystem too , and with Nokia store having 1.7k apps .really shame .
You all comments like if you know something... wait till the end of Nokia to talk...
Stop saying stupid things!
If u want to buy a Nokia... buy it!
if you wont... dont!
simply i think nokia must turn to android no other choices. And dont say how just do it. Nokia used wp7 so there no reason why not stick android to there devices
