Nokia has many years of reputation as the best phone manufacture.
Nokia's original plan to use Symbian and Meego was actually in the right direction. In fact for many years, we knew Symbian was the driving force for Nokia's succes, sales, and profits. What Symbian needs is only a fast improvements - and they are doing it now with Belle, and perhaps Carla and Donna or "E" something. So did Meego, it was so succesfull when it was launched.
This pictures changed when CEO Elop came, wrote the Burning Platform's Memo about Symbian as a Dead OS (which made many people believed), ditched all Nokia's native OSes of Symbian, Meego, and Meltemi, and planted only WP for Nokia.
Since then Nokia is going down badly - especially with the low sales of Windows phone. In fact Samsung & HTC sold more WP than Nokia.
The real question now is why Nokia has to bow to MS when Samsung can independently use Android, Bada, WP, and Tizen and enjoy success. So does HTC.
In short, Symbian wasn't burning at all. On the contrary it is improving amazingly fast.
Symbian is the mother of all OSes, the most mature and very capable OS, very stable, has true multi tasking, and also user friendly. To put it simply, Belle (maybe Carla & Donna if any) can do what other OSes can do, or better. The only draw back perhaps of less apps (but stil there are about 100.000 apps available for download in Nokia store)
Nokia 808PV is a pure technological breakthrough and a mother of all cameraphone. Therefore it has a class of it's own and also one of the best smartphone in 2012. It can perform all modern smartphone usability. It's awesome - end of story.
haters will always hate ! no body is forcing u to buy it go get any other brand
from a super happy 808 owner !

Samsung is fantastic!!! :) I am glad that I own a Samsung. Samsung is the future. They are working so hard to be number one in sales. They will overtake Nokia by next year. Samsung is not lazy, they are working VERY hard. The specs are amazing. 2 GB of Ram, 1.8 GHZ of Dual Core CPU sounds great as well. 12 MP camera(wow)
