People need to stop bashing other OSs just for the sake of it.
Anyone who really claims Symbian sucks is ignorant and stupid, anyone who claims Android would suck would be the same. Both OS have their pros and cons. At least for now, Symbian still has by far the bigger market share than Android.
I myself would prefer Symbian for the following reasons: Nokia uses it (im Finnish so Nokia holds sentimental value to me cos of that), it's been developed for longer and further, meaning they have managed to fix most "rookie problems" of the OS, it's lighter than the Android (not necessarily a good thing, but a good tradeoff FOR ME), these to name a few.
I personally wouldn't "touch Android" cos if it wasnt for the N8, I wouldn't even be buying a smartphone at the moment. Either way, I have my reasons to stick with Symbian that is a very fine OS, especially Symbian^3, although it looks boring, but it works. I personally don't buy phones to go "wow" at the menus.
So if you want an Android or the Windows stuff, get one by all means. Nokia will most likely never implement either, at least not android. I'm abit afraid for the Windows thing seeing that Nokias new CEO is ex-Microsoft, but most likely/hopefully they will stick with Symbian/Meego combination and develop those OSs to the best they can be :)
[deleted post]Also, screen size is only about user preference, not direct upgrades. I for one wouldn't probably even buy a phone with 4"+ screen. It's just too big for a mobile phone for me. I don't want a big ass PDA, I want a phone that has decent capabilities in other aspects like browsing the web etc.
I'll rather have my 3,5" screen than 4,3" ever.
[deleted post]Hardware specs and OS have very little to do with each other.
You forget that N8 has dedicated GPU that the phones u list will most likely lack. USB on the go is something I wouldn't trade for few pixels either, for example.
But you really arn't worth discussing cos you don't understand the difference between phones, operating systems and hardware. Android has nothing to do with Mhz/Ghz for example. N8s CPU is underclocked to 680Mhz cos it doesn't need more, cos it's SHITLOADS lighter than android.
Its brilliant, everything is much better...
they have stepped up their game

Android in not a phone, its an os, and a very heavy os which does not support apps in memory card, yet
and n8 has dedicated gpu
[deleted post]Why do you keep saying the same thing?
I wouldn't even touch Android let alone the Windows OS on mobiles myself. Symbian is by far the most mature OS out of all the alternatives and that's a value that's worth something to me. Android is cool and stuff, but still quite heavy and even in idle mode has been reported to be draining batteries dead :D
Nothing wrong with Symbian. And it still holds the biggest market share when it comes to smartphones.
Nokia are having a big shake up at last an Microsofts business Manager is going to Replace Pekka Kallasvou who as not really done anything sparkling at Nokia an not advanced the company at All,So at Last someone who knows about Computers an Software,thats were Nokia have been way behind the others,an hope the N8 really does get Nokia back on Track,an now with Intel an new Microsoft Business manager they can really produce Top Smartphones an get Nokia moving on

Bt again u r prejudiced against Samsung. I wud request u 2 admire d novelities rather than using absurd words. Manners man! I believe in non-violence :-)
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2010agreed! no phone is perfect, one have to compromise with some features in each model. "th... moreYa u got it perfectly-'this phone suits me' describes best. We shud be ELASTIC while slamming or admiring a phone or phone manufacturer and not PLASTIC. Remember a manufacurer is due 2 its customers while the opposite is hardly true. So i'll say Wave is Wave while N8 is N8 just like Nokia is Nokia and Samsung is Samsung. Now let me say, i've seen and used enough phones, i now only long 4 a phone wid a 3D display in which i dont hav 2 wear glasses 2 experience 3D, those 3D TV's nd movies fail me when it comes 2 glasses :-)
Kaushal, 10 Sep 2010Wave has as many as 10 homescreens and i can use as many as i want!who cares about 10 pages??what are u gonna hold on that? on widget in each page?
on 3 pages for the N8 u can hold more features than all 10 pages of the samdung
