jomyad, 09 Feb 2014terribly missing the symbian. loved it.I have my Omnia HD and would love to play with more Symbian phones again. It is such a shame it went out.
As well as at that point Samsung utterly dropped the ball with support of the Omnia and it was doomed to never see the day of Symbian 2.
Back in the days before Android and the crappy Ipod 2 that made calls we had Symbian with 3d multi tasking, HD camera and playback, led, 8mp, file manager, copy and paste, usb storage, sd cards, removable battery, multi media text"for the life of me I will never understand how Apple could not include MMS until the update after the 3GS"...And so much.
great day 2007 to 2011 with synbian and nokia
nokia plz made symbian mobiles you will b no. 1 in the world
It wud be so cool if all the phones wud hav a 64-bit processor nd storage ranging frm 32-64 gb
Wid technology muvin at a lightning speed it won't take much time

Its hard to believe that 701 have single core 1.3 ghz processor. It only lags at start up and installations. Rest is pretty good.
is it just me or did windows mobile have way more features than windows phone?
Just look at this toshiba
if windows phone looked like this I actually might be interested is having it as my next phone. As it is... FAIL. how can the older version of the software be better than the current?
r, 09 Feb 2014RIP symbian. go to hell eflop and his supporters.I feel such terrible nostalgia :[.
My dear Nokia 701 was so much better than the Lumia 520 I use now.
geordie81, 09 Feb 2014the problem though lays in companies unwillingness to increase the storage capacities for god ... moreI think the better example would be the N97 from that time which had two built in 16GB chips.
The key to survival was advancing to next level before anyone else does
For a long time Nokia enjoyed being on top and were intentionally slowing their rate of technological advancement.....I guess they were'nt willing to because of lack of competition, its when Androids and Apple fought their way out by removing all resrtictions from their devices and rest is history!!!
Mobilemaster, 09 Feb 2014My question is:When will be a breakthrough in internal flash storage's? These days, even 32 GB... moreI would imagine that 16GB is still plenty for most everyday users, hence why it's stuck around for so long. For me personally, no, I need 32-64GB, but most mums, dads and not-so-techy people that don't use much multimedia... well, for them I think 16GB is fine for taking photos.
There should be some sort of regulation that going from say 16GB to 32GB option would not cost much more than a average priced memory card. The industry would thank itself in the long run.
luisinhoens90, 09 Feb 2014This is a great reminder about how far we have come in mobile technology. Sometimes I think ab... moreIt's the software that needs improving, the idea of "apps" is limiting the phones, we need tools that people can combine to make their own apps, we need better way to share data or content between apps, we need different way to show and organize content without apps.
More cores, ram, HD or better screen won't make big difference.
Mobilemaster, 09 Feb 2014My question is:When will be a breakthrough in internal flash storage's? These days, even 32 GB... morethe problem though lays in companies unwillingness to increase the storage capacities for god only knows what reason, my nokia N96 from like 2007/8 ish, had 16gb of storage plus micro sd slot.
fast forward6/7 years, everything has increased in size 10 fold, OS are now GB's not MB's, games are also the same, along with super cameras, video recording, full HD playback, displays for said full HD, the difference in cost at trade between 16/32GB storage is about $10/£10 so when a flagship cost $800/£600 surely it should be conceivable to cost in the larger storage.
we really should be at the stage where 64gb storage is the standard size for flagships and 32gb for midrange, samsung and many other companies are already developing 128gb flash storage as well as micro sd cards being readied.
If my galaxy s5 could come with 64gb and micro sd support that would be fantastic, once you lose partition and natural memory the card is about 59.2gb, plus another 8gb for the OS, giving you about 50gb storage, perfect. hardly much of a cost increase at their end
My question is:When will be a breakthrough in internal flash storage's? These days, even 32 GB is insufficient if you want to take high resolution videos. CPU's, and RAM's have been developed a lot, and camera's too. Now it is time for the internal flash storage to be put in a new level.
This is a great reminder about how far we have come in mobile technology. Sometimes I think about how would smartphones be in a couple of years and what will be the next best feature but that's so unpredictable.... More cores? More RAM? Dual boot OS? UHD screens? You name it.
Meanwhile I'll enjoy my Nexus 5.
