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 :-)
AnonD-570, 15 Feb 2011m in love with the NOKIA hardware...i have used many androids so far but beside my i phone 3gs... morei agree with you mate...i have samsung galaxy tab..love the spect and OS but very disapponted with battery power consumption...i do love more my N8 and C7....i use it day to day ..never worried about battery power..i just hopping that symbian^3 will be smooth like android....or perhaps android can be more battery saver because it os is perfect..if their can solved this problem..android will be the best...neverless for this time being N8 still the best in overall performance..just waiting e7 to release in my country to replace my c7...
why u nokia always delay....i hate to wait for so long....?????
as much as I hate trojan elop for pushing nokia into what americans call ecosh*tstem (hello US, there is a world out there), I'll still support 'em.
AnonD-570, 15 Feb 2011m in love with the NOKIA hardware...i have used many androids so far but beside my i phone 3gs... moreI do agree with u.
I myself have been using bb torch currently, my 2nd phone is the n97 as well as the sony x10.
I have been using symbian since a very long time, n97 is probably my 10th nokia symbian device, but the x10 is my first sony ericsson as well as my first android phone, also the bb is my first ever bb.
My experience so far, symbian is the best for everyday use making calls, notes, calender,
x10 android is fast, and great for taking pictures, sleek design, gets attention.
bb the best messenger phone so far.
My next phone, I am pretty lost between E7, xperia play xperia arc and galaxy s 2.
I think processor of E7 doesn't perform well. It has same issue as N8. Nokia please seek alternat of Symbian.
symbian doesnt use so much power as android so a 680mhz is equal to 1ghz android.Although the camera is bad and screen res but good quality and design unlike samsung and lg phones.and symbian isnt that crappy cuz i have se vivaz pro and I can unpack rar files,download torrents,read pdf files and so on.still android is a better OS than
I would have bought this phone if Nokia would have included the Fm transmitter and micro SD card slot,this phone should have had N8 hardware plus the keyboard phone.They can and should build a N8 with real keyboard for we symbian lovers. Nokia should be able to make symbian,android and wp7 phones if the want to be leaders.I'm vex they don't have any new phones to show,what in the world they been doing for the past year.Fire the people at the top , not the bottom.

Nokia will bu using Window7 for its operating system after its agreement with IBM. Symbian will be history. Nokia will be dropping its symbian OS and replace it with W7 for future phones.
Its time for them to make the move.
Whether its getting better of worst only time will tell.
Just wait and see for the next 6 months for Nokia Phone running W7 OS.
Does not make any sense to buy Symbian phones for such hefty prices as Nokia will discontinue symbian support down the line. Better options with Android
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2011i have a nokia e71 and want to upgarde to a nokia e7 .is the e7 good?Buy iphone or blackberry and you will not regret your decision. Nokia is not coping up with market in term of hardware, feature, look and over all product quality. I can give hundreds of example (if u ask) to justify my statement. Now its time to quit Nokia.
what's the strategy giving 1200mh battery in this high end phone specially other E-series keeping 1500mh battery. Nokia still thinks they rule the market but not anymore. This type of poor plus and minus in hardware and features really killing them to compete in the market. Well Done Nokia, keep up the good work like this so you lose the remaining market.
Nokia, you NEED to wake up already! The past year was a curse 4 you, and now you didn't announced any devices!! Shame on NOkia! I thought earlier that they will announce that N9 Meego phone! I am disappointed! Samsung will beat the hell out of you!
m in love with the NOKIA hardware...i have used many androids so far but beside my i phone 3gs and moto milestone i was never that impress with most of the droids i had so far...especially my previous android samsung galaxy s...the feel was so cheap,plasticy and soooo smudgy,just hate it !!! they lack the luxurious premium feel inspite of paying for them so much...but then i am so happy with my current NOKIA N8 and now planning to buy this beauty !!! just love the anodized bodies of em...no other smartphone compnies are offering that luxurious feel...but after listning to steph...m worried about the feuture of symbian...shd i go for this guys???
i dont understand why thers so much of hatrcy for symbian,i agree it might not be an eyecandy os to be impress with it...but it certnly deserves its place after being there for so long...and i have never seen such battery life in any androids i have used so far like my N8...androids big processors are battery eaters...where as my N8 gives me about 2-3 days with prety regular use...
i would rather choose working os with superb built quality like symbian with nokia rather than just an eyecandy os like android with cheap plastic feel hardware which i have to use while keeping my eye on my battery monitor...
