Symbian is still a fully functional O/S its the bloody ovi/nokia store thats awful and unusable..They should have kept symbian and poured money into the app store..Symbian still has Gravity, calenders ,true multitasking, very low power efficiency,notes,decent cameras video and microphones and on and on..Up the CPU AND GPU and up the memory for GPU and relaunch series 80 third edtion sliders and clamshells.
E90 beauty please with 2013 spec.
Anonymous, 09 May 2013Yeah sure, this is Nokia's fanfare announcement. Nothing will happen on the 14th... Fandroids... moreI was very careful to not specify any one specific platform only. The fact you have to attack Android immediately speaks volumes.
Mike, 09 May 2013Why are you comparing this to smart phones? The reason why previous Asha phones sold 10+ milli... moreThat's the point. There was a time when Nokia were the undisputed leader and did make the best phones and consequently commanded the highest price tags and no one complained. Now it seems they are reduced to making low end feature phones for people who don't want, or cannot afford, IOS or Android phones. It's not like Windows phone is exactly a runaway success for them either.
we want symbian. not this asha and lumia.. lackof apps, whats wrong to nokia this days, pls nokia get this microsoft out in our head before its to late.
we have multitasking on asha now.so we call them smartphones now-nokia announced for apps,apps,and apps.why can't 1 expect hd games on asha s40 which run on low end android 2.3,say asphalt,angry birds,temple run,cut the rope,fruit ninja,e.t.c.
nokia is somehow stupid to have killed the symbian platform! It was big with loads of apps. Now asha this asha that. F__k that. I wish nokia would change this and soon..
Its just the first phone of the next generation asha series nokia will make midrange asha phone once they are able to get some useful apps & some good free games for this series phones

Fandroids stoop to new lows every day it seems.
miki, 09 May 2013Is not S40 anymore! Its meeGo OS! :)More like MeGone!

The reason why previous Asha phones sold 10+ million is because not everyone in the world can afford to buy high end phones from HTC, Samsung and Apple. You're comparing apples to oranges mate :P
I must trade my iPhone 5 in now, this is the phone I have been patiently waiting for. Thanks you Nokia, now all my dreams have come true. You make me very happy boy!!!!
I think this just sums up where Nokia have now sunk to. HTC, Samsung, LG and Sharp are all bringing out excellent Smart phones for Android. Apple fans are talking about the iPhone 5S and Blackberry finally ahs the Z10 smart phone. What is Nokia's great fanfare announcement? A cheap 2G only phone with a 3 inch display and only 2 home screens, running a proprietary O/S that looks like a Symbian phone from 5 years ago!
Hello Hello hello.. why not just bring Symbian or Meego to this? Rather than making a new, crap, limited OS!
Nokia, you make OS and you abandoned them. Symbian, Meego, Maemo.
