i had this suggestion,
for bar phones, it should run s40
for touch and type run smarterphone's OS (or maybe this new interface that was collaborated with S40)
for lowest low end touch screen run smarterphone or meltemi
for low end boundary phones run Symbian OS
for mid-range and High end run WP or MeeGo/Maemo harmattan
let the meego/maemo harmattan apps run to meltemi! since they are just the same!
i think meltemi is the newest version of maemo! since meego harmattan was the latest! and harmattan was base with the winds too so just maybe! :)
if WP8 will change what WP7/7.5 dont have like bluetooth transfer, Mass storage, and expandable memory i would be happy and stop blabbering! and at the very low cost! like the "cheap" android on the market right now! S40 is so dead when it comes to touch screen,multitasking, and apps availability!
it is still necessary to have your own OS on your own house! im really disappointed when you ditched symbian and upset when you announce to discontinue the meego project! but after hearing that there will be a meego lite for low end phones and will offer WAAY BETTER than S40 called meltemi, i was so happy. but im upset again about the news that you are abandoning the project again!
elop is just showing himself that he is really a MS dog! we all know that MS and linux (which the meego,maemo and meltemi are based) aren't friends. maybe thats why they will abandon something that is promising!
but it would be really good to got a back up OS and have an OS on your own! WP is a 3rd party OS! dont let MS buy you, nokia! maybe this is elop's plan! to let nokia sell itself to MS! wake up and stop this flopping!
Meego really is promising as it looks! so please give this meltemi a light! this new S40 interface looks nice but it wont compete on low end android! galaxy y and maybe other low end android will be dominating this part!
i've heard that smarterphone team is working on this new S40! which is really good! but atleast dont abort meltemi!
S40 still lacks some features! where is the document viewer?! atleast linux could have one! S40 still not that competitive!
xenot, 14 Jun 2012no it should be at least 65k or 262K or 16M colorsi agree wth u
AnonD-56158, 15 Jun 2012this is a low end touchscreen phone that is meant to go up against chinese brand touchscreen p... moreTerrible phone.
Asha series suck to the core.
They should have gone with linux meltemi instead of the stupid new age s40 with gimmick ram and rom specs. Ofcourse microsoft hates linux and they would never want their colony company to use linux, so they forced nokia to dig up the s40 and they have terribly failed in the miserable attempt.
According to some idiots, this is against chinese low end phones, heck, nokia s40 is the chinese low end now. Except the sar values whats the difference? Huh?
This waste cant even multitask or we cant even do a proper video call or proper pixels per inch, just 156 and proper colours 56k.
Even my 1.5 year old cedar is better than this, except for the display and the megapixels every aspect is better.
The best part is it got a 280mb rom and we can access it, edit it, customise it any way we want just like a droid and not a gimmick like this nokia.
Nokia is dead nowadays. They should never had taken microsofts side and should have developed linux's meltemi and meego.
just release ur w8 phnes and see how it compete un the market.....
nokia clearly lost its identity when it pick windows over its native platform.......
you should atleast maintain meego ..... the meego community had made alot of efforts with that platform..... dont disregard you users......
your loosing the fight when will you realize that. meego canhelp you maintain your ground....
further improve it and it will be competitive i tell you. and kick eflops but out of your company..... hes mcrosofts dummy....
finnish should be ceo of nokia.....
Snehashish, 13 Jun 2012Asha 311... for me.. Its a waste of money... It has good capacitive touch screen... wifi.. B... moreyes it has voip included, http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devices/Device_specifications/Asha_311/
if asha 311 would have dual sim features it would have been my best choice
Those this phone runs games like hd games and does it have multitasking?
VIDEO CALL is also a main feature of 3G, Nokia again and again ignoring this fact. Nokia should know people want front camera in a 3G phone.
nice phone all feature available in this set. ecnomical range . plz tell me correct range
this is a low end touchscreen phone that is meant to go up against chinese brand touchscreen phone so don't expect much. the price will still be higher than chinese brand phone but not too much , i hope.
This phone of Nokia wont dissapoint you. The touch is good. With 1Ghz processor, the phone's feature looks good.
