[deleted post]Before the day Symbian ^3 gets released, then Android will sells like 150-170k units A DAY.
Now today Android sells 100k units per day. And how much does that gets before Symbian ^3 is released?.
Lets take 135k as an average sell amount per day and then divide that with how many days it's left until Symbian ^3 gets officially released.
And lets says it's 3 months until the Symbian ^3 is released. Then you take 1350 x 92 days from today.
That will be 12420000 (12.42 mill) units sold before Symbian ^3 is released.
Good luck Symbian.
Well in total now, Symbian in total sells alot more than Android, but i'll just say wait and see.
Within a year Android will take over both Symbian and iPhone OS both in total numbers at the same time if Android continues to grow as fast as it have done the last time now.
But i know the numbers for Android will skyrocket like crazy now, so saying Symbian ^3 will beat Android there is something i would like to see happening before you speak to high about Symbian. But i really doubt it will ever happen.
And to the last thing. Those who compares an iPhone to the Nokia N8, you are pretty dumb. Have you seen this what i have written about the iPhone?: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=6583392&postcount=23
Those points is not made by me, it's points made by what ALOT of others are saying. It's based on facts from many tests and experts.
So by those points, iPhone is a pile of junk in absolutely everything.
Well some few of the points in that list will go away when iPhone 4G is released, but your still as much controlled by Steve Jobs in everything on that phone, so it doesn't matter.
So in this case. Symbian ^3 / Symbian ^3 devices -> iPhone OS 4 / iPhone 4G any days.
So as far as things looks now today, then my list of what's the best and crappiest Mobile OS is.
1. Android 3.x.
2. Android 2.2.
3. Android 1.6.
4. Windows Phone 7.
5. Maemo 5 (Made by Nokia).
6. Symbian ^4.
7. Symbian ^3.
7. Windows Mobile 6.5.
8. Windows Mobile 6.1.
9. iPhone OS 4.
10. iPhone OS 3.
This list might change later one time though. But the 2 last OS'es here will stay there no matter what though.
N8 will crash the Samsungs & Sony ericssons high end devices into tiny pieces. Actually into some fine powder.

hani, 29 May 2010yea u have to wait 1 year to get 2.2 by that time android 2.5 or 3 will be out LOL.Nah, i don't think that.
If Android 2.1 and 2.2 is basicly the same, then Sony Ericsson doesn't need to code TimeScape and MediaScape up from the ground. Since going from ANdroid 1.6 to 2.1 is a very big step and it's extremely big difference on how those 2 versions are.
But going from Android 2.1 to 2.2 just needs some few code changes, so if i think it will be like that, then i think it will be short time from when we get Android 2.1 on our XPERIA X10 until we have Android 2.2.
Since the only reason Android 2.1 is delayed so much is because Sony Ericsson have to make TimeScape and MediaScape and some few other things to Android 2.1, and they can't port that from Android 1.6 either. So they have to make it from the ground. That's why it takes so long time.
So they can most likely port that very fast to Android 2.2 if i'm not to wrong.
So we might get Android 2.2 faster than we might think on our XPERIA X10's.
Tom-Helge, 29 May 2010celladik. Yes, 3d hardware acceleration helps a bit when your gonna view graphics and stuffs l... moreyea u have to wait 1 year to get 2.2 by that time android 2.5 or 3 will be out LOL.
about the X10 xperia guy who always visit us & share his WISDOM....
DONT BE SUPRISED! he'll quitely go and buy this N8... HA HA HA... well we dont know who he really is... correct? HA HA HA AHAKS... cheers N8 lovers
celladik. Yes, 3d hardware acceleration helps a bit when your gonna view graphics and stuffs like that.
And like i have said earlier many times, the GPU doesn't says how fast your Nokia N8 is going to run your programs. The GPU will help you to run things much smoother but not any faster.
Does my ATI Radeon HD 4870 1 GB card says how fast i load Firefox or any games?, no it doesn't. That's the CPU's work to load things fast.
And brynn. You need a nice CPU in your mobile phone so you can run things very fast. I'm gonna say this, wait until XPERIA X10 gets Android 2.2, then we can talk about what speed is :-).
Since i don't play games on a mobile phone, then i absolutely needs a phone with the most powerfull CPU that can run things really really fast.
And Bong, like i said, most of the Nokia phones are getting abandoned after a year or something like that. Not every phones from Nokia are getting that.
hani, i'm stupid because i have valid arguments on what i'm saying?. Alright, if you want to say that, then at least prove me totally wrong on what i'm saying.
Anonymous. The thing that many peoples likes / hates Nokia N8 is simply because there are waaaaaaaay way more peoples that buys Nokia phones than someone buys phones from Sony Ericsson. And because of that, there is most likely more peoples that hates the Nokia N8 than how many in total that have bought phones from Sony Ericsson as a brand in total.
And this is how i look at Symbian ^3. First of all Symbian ^3 is nothing new. It's just a normal Symbian mostly with new UI and new graphics. So that alone is a good enough reason to not buy any phones with Symbian ^3. Ofc Symbian ^3 have been optimized a little over the earlier Symbian versions though. But that's not enough to even consider to get a phone with Symbian ^3.
Lets talk when Symbian ^4 comes out instead. But i have a big feeling that before Symbian ^4 comes out, then Android will most likely be so big and good that Symbian ^4 wont have a chance anyways.
If Android continues to grow as much as it have done the last 5-6 months in the next year that comes, then Android will take over the market. Now Android is sold on 100k units per day now. And that's pretty HUGE number.
And lastly, this is to you hani.
You can say whatever you like about MeeGo, but the thing that i like to see is if those words you are saying are true. I don't believe that for a second before i see that happening.
MeeGo might looks good and all that, but the question is, will it be popular?.
For all i know, MeeGo might be to late to be any success if Android is getting developed as much as it's getting now.

this phone'll give you lots of pain in teh a**! its a bloated feature phone and it crashes a lot but you cannot remove the battery!
I somehow dislike the open app windows, i hate the graphic design, the squares should not have sharp angle, it make it looks outdated, nokia please care abput this issue, apple is doing very well in graphics and theme, take action please

Though UI not as much good as Android, its definatly better than TouchWiz crap from Samsung. I laugh when people & even GSMarena reviewers like the TouchWiz but throw up on Symbian. GSMarena feels like Samsung has done a job never like before by mixing TouchWiz homescreen with their Symbian, Android phones. But they actually have messed up the originallity of OS by Touchwiz crap. I can feel the partiallity of GSMarena guys while reviewing UI of different OSs.
