Praveen, 08 Dec 2012What About the multitasking capability of nokia lumia 820...?It has multitasking, but if you open too many apps in the background it "freezes" some of them at the state they were in and "resumes" them from that point when you open them up again. So I would say a step behind Android but a step ahead of iOS.

As far as I know there's no OS as simple and flexible as symbian around. LONG LIVE PLAY, LONG LIVE SONY
Sometimes you have to question the direction technology is going.
My 2 year old C7 runs symbian,has Penta Band 3G,does 3G Video calls,has NFC, has a full fledged file manager, DLNA, USB On-the-go and SD TV out.
My year old Android (HTC EVO 3D) runs ICS, has quad band 3G, no 3G video calling,no NFC, no USB on-the-go feature(only a few androids support this), has an MHL TV out (for which I need a special cable and additional power supply) but thankfully still has DLNA.
My new Lumia WP8 phone runs the latest version of WP8, has LTE and 3G, no 3G video calling, no DLNA yet (no idea when it will come), No MHL/TV output and no USB on the go functionality, no file manager and no way to handle .zip/.rar files, mass storage works only for media and documents.Oh yeah,they say it has NFC.
Progress indeed, when you consider my 2 year old C7 now runs software that is officially "dead".
Uh, I hope Nokia Lumia 820 will be available at Cambodia.
Because I think many Cambodian people like this phone so much...

beatifully designed, but most consumers would shifted to Window OS, only after it attended full maturity (without any functional restriction) + sufficient applications available for their daily activities.
