i would wait for symbian for because it comes with support for 800x480 pixel resolution
thats for me the main reason not biy the n8
an symbian 4 powered phone will come to december
Will you be able to change the Symbian ^3 OS to the Meego OS, or Maemo 5? Will you be able to clock the processor to above 1GHz like the N900? Can you upgrade the RAM or ROM? Thanx.
n8 rules. no one cares about the votings going down. its not a lost!
AMANITA, 03 Jul 2010Really ? Thatz great if it is true ! True dat. A real threat to the samsung & isheep funboys. They know it. Apart from the mem ful errors, everything else is just fine, including speed.
Nokia sold 21.5 million smartphones in the first three months of this year. So while some areas of the market may be bleating that Nokia is on the slide it seems more mainstream users than ever are enjoying the benefits of the Symbian OS. Read on to find out why 21.5 Million Nokia fans can ’t be
The first quarter of any year often sees a dip in sales, largely due to everyone spending too much
in the pre-Christmas rush. However, a report from Network World suggests that Nokia beat current market trends by selling 21.5 million
smartphones in the first quarter of the year, which is up quarter-on-quarter from 20.8 million. That’s pretty amazing considering the world wide market sold a total of 55 million smartphones, so
Nokia is clearly still leading the way.
The main reason for this growth is put largely down to the growth in Nokia X Series and Nokia C
Series devices, which may not be cutting-edge devices but deliver amazing high-end features at an appealing mainstream price. This filtering down of technology from the high-end to ever more affordable handsets is a strategy that seems to be
winning Nokia fans the world over.
With Nokia moving the Nokia N Series to a MeeGo platform we can expect to see more Symbian- based devices appearing in the Nokia C Series and
Nokia X Series ranges.
Great design, great spec... But i am worried about the battery !!!! Can this battery survive with the the 12mp cam ? Hope it will...
People don't worry to much about the different OS's. Keep in mind, programs written for megoo will work in a s4 device. Further, regular upgrades to s3 will bring it very close to the s4 standards. Actually, s3/s4, megoo, memo and android are pretty close to begin with. For example, a memo device (the n900) was made to run on android without any hardware changes. Nokia self said, most megoo programs will run without any changes on s3/s4. I really don't understand what you are all about . . .
ANOTA, 03 Jul 2010This phone is never gonna work out without a 1ghz processor & 512 MB ram....without these ... moreSymbian^1 works pretty snappy in a e72.. thats a 600mhz ..........
remember that it also dosnt have a GPU, that is hardware acceleration...
and half the rams..
and to top that they say symbian^3 is more memory efficient and snappier, meh we'll c to that soon
i meant symbian^4* not meego, im looking forward for symbian^3, but still have many doubts in mind... i like symbian but im just too sick of that "memory full" error..
also, i hope they remove all those stupid notification, everytime you copy/cut.. or connect, app install etc, file deleted and so on... those feed backs consume too much times, and makes symbian "feels" slower that it already is :P(altho this time its software not hardware wise)..
maybe a tiny popup at the top right corner or something, but not something that will "stop" user from inputting for a whole second..
Jean, 02 Jul 2010Sad news for Nokia and Symbian. The symbian Guru has left the ship, and is buying an android p... moreDon't be sad.... but be angry on Nokia for being adamant by developing such crappy,lame,sluggish devices despite knowing the issues of these phones and not fixing them....
This phone is never gonna work out without a 1ghz processor & 512 MB ram....without these It will be the same experience as that of N97......let it be a Symbian^(3) or Symbian^(Infinity)........
Ali Abdulla, 03 Jul 2010- memory in C: too low - 256mb is not bad, but its not good at all :@ - no qwerty keyboard :... moreThe problem of not enough memory in the c:/ drive was peculiar to the n97 alone. Not even the mini had this problem. How then do you expect nokia to repeat such a disaster in their current top phone at their current state of crisis. Also bear in mind that this is running a new symbian not the pile of crap that ran on the n97.
