green n8, 13 Feb 2011at the end of the day, whatever it is nokia decides to do, we consumers have our choice. it's ... moresamsung announced 1ghz phone with 1GB ram amdroid 2.3, LG announced 1.2ghz phone with 512 ram android 2.3 each having about 4.3 400x840 with super AMOLED display. U knw what I love my N8 but nokia is out of competion. Lets see what do they announce tomorrow.
at the end of the day, whatever it is nokia decides to do, we consumers have our choice. it's either we take it or we don't. technology development is so fast that if you buy a new gadget today, it can be obsolete tomorrow. as for me, until i find a new phone which delights me like my n8 did when i first got it, i'll stick to it as of the moment.
nokia has announced that in 2011 symbian^3 updates will release as symbian^4 thats it after that no updates and finally in 2012 no symbian no updates and new era of nokia will begin with wp7 phone....let see what nokia do bcoz after symbian they should adopt android or os like iphone or meego but wp7 is quite shocking news wp7 does'nt suites nokia.not expected this from nokia but may be windows would be different from current wp7
XX, 12 Feb 2011So does it mean that all these people who spend quiet lot of money to buy this high end handse... moreyes your right, the last update of n8 this year2011 is pr2.0, and pr3.0 is 100% Cancel. the new symbian ui qt no chances to get and update for n8, because no symbian os released by 2012, it so sad, so dont buy e7 is useless. wp7 is suck not friendly user i will not support that, i will buy samsung year2012 sorry nokia but wp7 base on my experienced using wp7 program always corrupted all important files is deleted you need to flash and flash the wp7 to bck to normal. n8 is my last nokia phone.

AnonD-1319, 13 Feb 2011it's not rumor it's official Symbian developers will be fired in the year 2012 thats the reaso... moreSo what do you suggest Phone arena, to the people who are currently using Nokia and a symbian deice, to throw away their device or sell them at half price..... It doesn't make sense you are talking about 1 year ahead do you know whats going to really happen after 1 month, no one knows. So please stop provoking people unnecessarily and discouraging them. We are already using these device and we have spent quit lot of our hard earned money to buy it. Lets see what happens in future, we all hope for the best.
AnonD-1097, 13 Feb 2011GUys lets just wait and watch instead of making our own assumptions...i think nokia will never... moreCan not agree more with you , Nokia is not going to kill Symbian ( at least in the near future ) , while MeeGo becomes a on going project .... It's the hardware/build quality that Nokia excels , so it's good for the consumers ( with more options ) at the end .
I really love my Nokia N8 , well built , solid and nicely designed . Regardless all the bugs and painful experience with software in the past 3/4 months , it's getting better and better , the Ovi Map is great to use , also lot's of useful and interesting app. From Ovi Store . I hope the new partnership with Microsoft will only excel ( Symbian is getting old ) , let's hope !
Hi guys, did anyone has problems with Nokia N* Facebook? Its so bad to use, doesnt load properly...Bad. Also, youtube on N8 quality ir really bad as well. How dificult is to make a proper app, I dont understand this??? Also, I still cant get that 1.1 update yet, takes ages somehow...
yad, 12 Feb 2011is it true nokia will be finish symbian OS plz reply thanks in advanceYes, it's official , Nokua will will be using Window Phone 7 platform from 2011.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2011I agree, if we see Samsung they have various models running their own BADA o.s, WP7 and also A... moreit's not rumor it's official Symbian developers will be fired in the year 2012 thats the reason of the walk out. maybe you should use google for the "graph" presentation of elop the plan is to dump symbian in 2012.
Well i don't mind if Nokia adopt windows phone 7,I'm quite excited actually especially on the gaming side..since i know wp7 has one of best graphics on gaming..but i just hope that Nokia will still keep their promise to give us an update for N8 and the rest of s^3 phone...no matter what happene i will still keep my N8 coz i really love it's camera..and look forward to Nokia 1st windows 7 phone. :)
if nokia scrapped their promised updates to recently announced symbian^3 devices and really plans to get rid of symbian (yeah, ive seen the slides), im shaking hands with the green robot and happily give that OEM and google my hard earned cash! adios nokia... done with you, i guess it's time to move on. (on d back of my head, i STILL hope that this NokiaSoft strategy is just nokia's way to get a strong hold in NAM, "buying time" and perhaps added "source of income" to somehow(?) sustain/maintain/improve symbian OS and develop meeGo further! is that the REAL conspiracy mr. elop and the majority of nokia's board of directors have?!?! oh wow, if i may, in my native language, this partnership could simply mean but dirty just:
using nokia phones since my first mobile phone - 3510. nevertheless, i still hope nokia the best. i will miss the power of SYMBIAN - less show off, but gets the job done
AnonD-1097, 13 Feb 2011GUys lets just wait and watch instead of making our own assumptions...i think nokia will never... moreI agree, if we see Samsung they have various models running their own BADA o.s, WP7 and also Android. So does it mean that they will dump BADA, in the future since they have Android and WP7, NO. Nokia is still the world leader in GSM Phones by far distance than their competitors, I am not a Nokia hard core fan, but I like this brand. Think with a open mind, they adopted the OS WP7 to give people more choices, and to get ahead in competition with other O.S in the market. Yes, its all about adoption new and less about dumping the present O.S, So my request to all is please do do not spread rumors, think yourself. In no circumstances Nokia can abandon the present customers, and stop supporting them, because if people stop buying it will be dead.
