hey guys ,, can anyone tell me when this phone will be available in south africa , (cape town) ?
juz, 27 Feb 2012OMG! 41MP camera? Unbelievable, how great it is, can it beat the Dslr Cameras?? The OS is rea... moreDont complain at Nokia,complain to your android phone maker why they dont spend more time in making a amazing camera phone..lol..quad core and xxxx ppi and xxxx ram and so on..and no descent camera.Belle and further update will make this one last long time.a 2 year old N8 is still no1 in camera until this one is released,
Anonymous, 18 May 2012For the same reason of who needs a dual core or quad core. No one needs this is this days, but... moreAs long as it performs well in the real-world setting, why care about how many cores a device has? Of course, faster is better, but going into overkill is not cool. Who will use that much processing power on a regular basis in a smartphone? It's not like people who own smartphones do mainstream video authoring and photo editing on their phones. As for launching applications, an average of 2 second delay at most would be acceptable. To put it in PC terms, you wouldn't buy an i7, 8GB 1600DDR3, 2TB, 580GT build of PC for Internet, basic photo editing and office applications only, right?
Multi-cores are only for those who do real multitasking, and I am not taking about the OS, I am referring to the USER. How often does one run multiple power-hungry apps, frequently switch among them, and have at least one do some processing in the background? Example: Basic photo editing, HD video conversion/processing, HD video authoring, audio processing, HD video/audio playback. That situation is where you WILL need multi-cores. For apps that don't do background processing, multi-cores are just a waste of money.
To anyone who is curious, that example I provided above is my own, which only rarely happens, and happens on my Core2Duo 2.93GhZ, 4GB DDR2 9800GT system. Slow, but not enough to make me shell out more money for an i7 system.
errrp... with 41MP and only 16 GB storage...
my maths tells me you can take about 3 photos before its full. winner!
How nice if this phone is relase android & symbian version. Well of course i would buy android!
what a waste a good camera phone load with symbian :(
nokia pureview is very good camera sensor phone , people hate for symbian but symbian is very good and easy os and belle fp1 update is very good because nokia os is not loser for android or window os
if only nokia had used cortex a8 or a9 processors on this phone. then we would see what symbian is really capable of.
joe, 19 May 2012considering the specifications it's not worth the price at all..samsung galaxy ace/2 offers be... moreName me one phone which got similar specs and not worth it! Well you can't , no other phone has such big camera sensor and no other mobile OS can support such too. Symbian has it's lovers, don't hate, appreciate such innovation
Anonymous, 19 May 2012Maybe 80,000 Apps on Symbian as a whole for all of it's OS's, but incase you didn't know most ... moreso what???? would this phone stop working if the OS is no longer supported by nokia?
come on! don't be too idi()tic! use your common sense, if you have such!
Anonymous, 19 May 2012It's only got 4 years left because of pressure from a vocal minority and right now the OS is j... moresimpler and better?
ios has lot's of apps sure, it has good looks, but it is restricted like hell,
heck u can't "wipe ur ass" withouth apple's approval, android is like a bazaar
everything is there, but that many things clogs the streets.
symbian is simple, secure, easy to work with, and the newest versions are stable
as hell. apps this apps that? so what? i can do everything with symbian, and even
more, so what? i don't have an app that make my phone bark, or something...
symbian is great, and i hope that nokia will not give up on it.

Meegoo transfer some parts to Nokia OS named carla in 2012 Q4

And by the way carla will be a mix of nokia belle and meego....
They just changed the name cause it heavily upgraded....
But please tell me why would the heavily upgade to nokia belle carla donna with meego too incorperated then scrub it????
You tell me smarass...
Just think about it...
MrVidek, 19 May 2012For those who think its bad to buy this because Nokia is dumping Symbian. This OS is supported... moreTotally agreee.... This phone is camera centric with all needed apps... other fun apps go for android
For me it doesn't matter it's Symbian. It's the best camera phone. I know it doesnt have Android, i know its not a DSLR, but we'll always be ready to take my little boy a picture...EVERYWHERE.
Apps and gadgets come and go. Memories dont. And I dont want poor pictures Android phones take.For apps i have a PC and a laptop.
Let those kids enjoy S3. I dont care!
