Eli Huang, 15 Feb 2014@carol you are absolutely crazy, symbian was dead already. hahahaIf Nokia killed it's developing, does not contradict the fact that Symbian is way better then Android. And who say the opposite, has never used Symbian or even worst, they never figure it out.

Protocol, 14 Feb 2014Finally a good low end phone. I was thinking of buying the Nokia Asha 503 but now, this phone ... moreThe Asha 1.x platform is a better platform than Android for phones with mid/low end specifications. It's more efficient with resources and task management.
However, let's be real about all this. Nokia is soon to be completely transitioned to Microsoft and Microsoft only has hardware divisions to sell software.
I am confident in saying that anything other than phones with the Windows OS are not part of Microsoft's long term strategy. Still, it would be cool to have one of these phones as a novelty when MS kicks Android to the curb.
