Symbian task manager is built in symbian itself unlike android where most applications starts running automatically, symbian doesn't do that. only the applications u want to open will stay open.

I am really confused about the E7, 1 day I want it, another day I dont. I thing is for sure, neither the x10 nor the bb torch is as easy to use and as user friendly as my nokia n97.
I honestly don't want another anodrid phone, but the xperia play and sgs2 specs are confusing me
Please nokia, announce a meego phone today as its the last day of mwc.
yes,just as i predicted,it's knives out for Elop at the next AGM.Let's all vote him out at the AGM in May 2011.
They should set Meego as the primary platform & Symbian at the lower end.
Can someone who had bought the E7 post a comment on the phone. I am planing to buy one. WM7 is out for me.
ab, 17 Feb 2011Do we have any task killers or task managers like android for high end nokia devices like e7 or n8?Symbian has its own task manager. Just hold down the menu button to bring up the list of tasks. To kill a task, just press the X.
Do we have any task killers or task managers like android for high end nokia devices like e7 or n8?
ryan, 16 Feb 2011hi there.. I had N8,C7 and C6-01..i luv N8 more..try N8 ...i have use it a lot as my primary ... moreIf u read my previous post I have mentioned their I own N8 my friend and I am very hpy abt it !!!! :-)
If Nokia can improved their Symbian sofware , why they should join forces with IBM.?? Just look and android. Some of the latest android ph have their latest 2.3 gingerbread. From 1.6 cup cakes to 2.3 gingerbread just a matter of months, not even a year. And currently android even looking further beyond their latest gingerbread version.
If only Nokia , who are once a bully boy in mobile phone market, is able to improved their own symbian OS ,they will never need IBM helphing hand.
Whatever it is , we wait and see the end product that will released by Nokia and IBM. Hopefully it will release a smartphone that is easy ans pratical to used ; even without referring to the mannual , one is able to use it , as that is what Nokia all this while have been adhering.
Cheers Nokia !!

No Memory Card *****
Only 16 GB
Camera not like N8
If it had been done wi... moreall the time people keep comparing nokia's camera to n8 nd thn say tht it sucks..but for once just compare it with any other smartphone available in the market...galaxy s has a 5 mega pixel camera without a flash..so basically the camera is crap bec almost 90% of the times we need a flash while taking pics..BB never had a grtt camera..sony gives u nice cam but it dosnt give u video calling option..
nd people keep saying abt the os...tell me which android phone gives u everythng,i.e, a gud camera, good sound and a good qwerty keypad..infact apart frm desirez nd milestone none of the android phones give u a qwerty keypad..fine thr will be people who dont need a qwerty, but thn thr r hell lot of people who really need it..nd what cool android applications people keep talking about..it doesnt even have folders..u cant store thngs or hide thngs if u want to...nd symbian has all the imp applications anyone will ever really need to use..nobody buys a cell for some stupid farting app..nd the navigation feature in nokia is best of thm all...so give me one good reason for buying android seriosuly aprt frm saying tht its the latest in thing nd is really cool!!

cant understand guys why symbian is going down(rather being killed for WP7 x... moreWell, I been thinking about which phone to go for and I think I have made up my mind, still not sure lol.
First, I will wait till tomorrow hoping nokia announces a meego phone.
Second, I don't see a point of me getting this E7 as I don't feel it as a big upgrade to my n97, maybe it is, I just feel it to be very similar.
Third, since I own the x10 and not a big fan of x10 no point of getting the arc, I mean come on sony, after a year there are improvements for sure but nothing significant changed?
I want something new and different. Maybe even a brand I haven't used before, samsung gs2 is a good choice, and I really want this Social hub feature only for samsung is interesting, though, as it gives you the opportunity to connect to the people in your life via various ways. Mail, chat, video chat, all incorporated into a single app.
If I go for sony, xperia xplay it is, I just hope nokia shows the meego tomorrow.
ab, 16 Feb 2011hope they will keep devloping symbian as u read somwhere :-) well about the WP7 its most likel... morehi there..
I had N8,C7 and C6-01..i luv N8 more..try N8 ...i have use it a lot as my primary phone...no problem so far except sometimes it restart acossionally due to so many unclosed apply.new up-date release just announce may fix it..but just install taskmanager to overcome it...
ryan, 16 Feb 2011slow down mate..there is nothing to lose.. sincerely.Nokia did not dump Symbian-their still h... morehope they will keep devloping symbian as u read somwhere :-) well about the WP7 its most likely to be the next big thing in the smartphone os market...b4 going for N8 i was thinking about buying samsung omnia 7 which is a WP7 device from samsung...so i did bit research about it and came to know about its limitations...so i droped out the plan of buying it...but like every other previously unsucssesfull os it will improve update by update...so we have to wait for that..lets see how it goes...though i must admit i quite liked it UI wise,overall look of WP7 is very proffecional...lets just wait and watch how it'll turn out,hope for the best...cheers :-)
Camera is FIXED-FOCUS?? How rotten is that? I own a Nokia N900 and Im really satisfied with it, but I highly doubt whether Ill change, especially to this!! How corny can you get with an 8MPXL camera, if there's no auto-focus??
ab, 16 Feb 2011totally agree mate....if android could become a battery saver then nothing like it...really no... morethanks mate..
May be we need to wait next year....perhaps.
just wait MWC2012..hehehehhehe

sincerely.Nokia did not dump Symbian-their still have development on it for future.read the news. I have use this phone before Dopot,HTC touch HD, Touch PRo 2..WM 5/6/6.5..Now there is WP7 and it new.Never have this device before.I really happy nokia will joint WP7.At lease I have opportunity to play around WP7.May be next year perhaps.because I believe other company had wm phone.Now let Nokia show their talent and skill to polish WP7..dont expect to much for first model..because their still new.Still learning.I believe it will improve time to time..like their do with symbian s60v3/5 Symbian^3 or S40 device.Just give them opportunity.Cant wait for nokia WP7..heheeh The thing i like nokia most,there always had firmware update to fix bug..that the good news...
Sincerely i had buy N900 meego, and by next day I sell it back..no need to explain why.you know what i meant.
For phone selection, I have advice for u..read user review.they will talk about their experience with the device.The device you said is still new.not release yet.dont be to ambitious.make you headache.except you have more money to spent.
nokia should recently improve their mobile feature.sorry to say nokia ur camera still poor when sony e has a strong camera and video recorder.sound still bad now.when it’s dolby digital.graphics and menu view also need improvement.
I am worried about Nokia adopting WP7 as their operating system. We all know WP7 is not the most usable OS in the market. The new CEO is making a big mistake and NOKIA is making a mistake in appointing him as CEO (unless he is a family member or he is one of Nokia's biggest shareholder). Just one look at him, I know he is not the kind who needs a smartphone in his daily life. He must be a least computer nerds if not computer addict to lead. He just makes and receive call. Sending email will be his secretary, he won't know how to send emails from smartphones. Therefore, he won't know the kind of phones which is required by the market.
What he should have done is to educate his software enginners, hardware designers, system engineers to polish the current SYMBIAN OS and make it even better. I guarantee, a lot of Nokia employees will be losing their jobs very soon especially the engineers, since Nokia will just wait for the software given by Microsoft. Nokia just produce the phone and that leaves Nokia's own engineers with nothing to do.
ryan, 16 Feb 2011i agree with you mate...i have samsung galaxy tab..love the spect and OS but very disapponted ... moretotally agree mate....if android could become a battery saver then nothing like it...really no other os can compete with android then...but i dont see it happening in coming years !!! the way these smartphone componies are increasing the ram on there phones and other specs as well...i dont think is possible !!!but u never know,so lets hope for the best !!! :-)
@mike and ryan
cant understand guys why symbian is going down(rather being killed for WP7 x-/) after serving so loyaly to nokia for so many years now...when ios and android wernt even born...instead of devoloping symbian and making it as eyecandy as android nokia has simply opt for to leting it go just like that !!! symbian was never a faliure u moron steph...u and ur devlopers were !!! and today where u are is becoz of early symbian smartphones.
i dont think theres any other os available as battery consuming as symbian was...i wish nokia could have devloped it properly...fingers crossed for meemo,meego...hope they will survive and come victorious in this nokia-wp7 summit.
and mike even i was so exited to have my hands on this oversized N8 with qwerty(E7) !!! and...now we both are sharing the same dilema...weather to go for LG optimus,xperia arc or SGS-II !!!
m personally in fevour of SE arc simply becoz of its hardware just hate plastic and cheap feel of my "X" SGS !!! even SE arc is all plastic but atlist its not that glossy one which samsung use...it has matt finished on its battery cover so far...(i mean u know how many changes takes place before actual launching !!) but then again SGS-II with 1GB ram and full HD recording facin8s me !!! lets see mate still one month to go for their launch,fingers crossed !!!do let me know ur choice as well and any other options u can think of.cheers :-)
