My N8 is still getting updates and I'll keep on using it until it's beyond any repair or I get the 808. I have all the functions I need, a great camera and it's still the best looking OS out there. I tried the others, returned them and never missed them but I can't stop using Symbian. Nokia's loss.
I had 7650, 6600, 6630, 6680, N73, N82, N8 and now 808 PV... I cant imagine phone market without symbian phones... Nokia had MeeGo, had Symbian Belle with Carla and Donna in development, they had milions and milions of active symbian users... they are now 90% on other OS-es than WP...
Symbian is dead, long live Symbian!
Do someone wanna buy my Nokia 808? Offers over 350'000.- Dollars are welcome.
RIP.. old friend.. Nokia , I wont buy your phones until you get me meaningful , lightweight OS that gets work done without having to fiddle.
the reason behind why nokia did not go for android is because google refused to...
GoranST, 13 Jun 2013What a heck are you talking about... symbian??? is a flop, it was really good like 6 years ago... moreYour Symbian device is very old and it's MUCH different from last Belle-devices. For example, I have Nokia 5230, Nokia 701 and 808. I can't even compare 5230 (S60 5th) to my 808 Pureview with the Belle FP2. I feel so bad when I read comments which arguments are based on ancient Symbian devices, like E72.
nokia could really benefit from going with android, is nokias agreement with microsoft that they cant use anything but microsof and/or symbian?
Whatever I will be stick to my nokia e5 untill it dies itself...it does my job pretty good... Have used android its good but I love qwerty and there is no other good phone except nokia e6 and this E5.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2013Wow. 22 months to develop a Symbian phone compared to 12 months for a Lumia...
I knew Symbian... moreThe train wreck is elop who destroyed what nokia had in past (symbian) and their future (meego) to choose the backwards and unpopular os (WP).
Nokia really deserves their predicament right now. Heck, even HTC manages to profit in a very competitive android platform.
Man I am left with no words.
In a way we can say the software which was ruler of market few years back has to give away its kingdom to other os's. Nokia is facing such a moment because they didn't accept the change, the change of android and now they are left miles behind. I also think that bringing a lumia phone is not that much good as to bring an android phone.
genXhippie, 13 Jun 2013What in the heck are you speaking about?He is on about the comment he responded to....
What a heck are you talking about... symbian??? is a flop, it was really good like 6 years ago when it didnt have any competition. Be realistic, ok it dont need strong spec. but it is far behind android, and ios. i am writing this because i still use android AND NOKIA E72. everything that i do on symbian is super easier on android.
Now Nokia should think of a replacement offer for those people who currently have Symbian phones, other wise they'll risk loosing them to other vendors.
RambaSamba, 13 Jun 2013lol iPhone have micro-sd slot? At least comment something meaningful :PWhat in the heck are you speaking about?

the main os in mobile that used mainstream in the world is less than 10
Does this mean that there won't be any further software development for Symbian as well? then what would happen to the current Symbian users? like N8?
The Real Facts, 13 Jun 2013Of course they only sold 500k symbian units compared to 5.6mil WP units. Because they had 6 n... moreDude, Corp outsource to reduce cost not to increase hehe. Reason IT industry in India grown fast and now in China too
