heyyy its official now.... symbian will be killed...specially afer symbian^3 was a big failiure...nokia will encorporate windows mobile...within 3yrs there will be no support 4 symbian.. better think before buying nokia nw.....i ws thinking to buy n8 bt nw i will buy xpreia arc..its rocking n android is the genX's OS.
Is this real ?
Hey guys I am using n8. I herd it can be upgarded to to symbian^4 and . and now also hearing that it can be upgraded to WP7. about a moth ago i saw n900 upgraded to android 2.3........?
So what should i expect for my n8. Symbian^4,WP7 or android........?
Just listen what Steve has to say about this partnership..."what M$ brings to this partnership is what mobile consumers want: Bing, Office and of course Xbox Live". WTF...who likes Bing, and office...never could use it on a small display. Xbox Live what a joke. Jiizas, this is like one of those bad nightmares that you thought would be impossible but is now true, what a freak show. So sad about Nokia. All my life i've used Nokia handsets, thats about 7 models up to N8. But after this epic catastrophy, no more Nokia for me, thank you.
abhi, 11 Feb 2011Hahaha... wp7 is worst when compared to symbian & maemo(functionality wise). This is what... moreI m totally agree with u mr abhi wp7 has many disadvantages no divx xvid support,no bluetooth file transfer,no video calling,etc etc
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2011Probably, you should start selling your N8 before its price devaluate.Devalue? Look at the price history chart and you'll see the opposite. Dont panic or speculate. See what that does to oil prices?
i simply dont get it..when nokia was promoting symbian people couldnt stop whining about how useless and old fashioned it was...
and now when they plan to get rid of it...they are acting like someone gave a bamboo up their as*..
elop aint an idiot...he didnt build up the worlds largest mobile company just like that...its just another move towards a brighter future for nokia..
and to all the trollers who are worried about our n8s...plz get your heads out of your as*es and listen up...we love our phone and wont be selling it until nokia comes up with another masterpiece just like it..
getting my phone on monday!!!!!!!!!!!!
:D:D:D cant wait for this baby
Wow! This phone is great. I just ran about 35 apps at the same time without a performance breakdown. But this is just some thing that had happened after i installed the official firmware PR1.1. PR1.0 was a disappointment in multitasking and performance. Anyways, hoping to get more features in the future updates via firmware.
HT, 11 Feb 2011I think you are meaninglessly bashing d brand, my friend use for like Nokia for years and noth... moreIf u read my post in full you will realize I'm not bashing the nokia brand. The only handset I mention is the n8. My commets are not opinionated. They are fact from experience. The return rate of the n8 far outweigh any other handset in the last few months. From memory the last handset to have such a harsh return rate was the nokia n96, again great hardware but faulty software. All handsets have faulty units but it's the rate that counts. Does your friend have an n8? If not it doesn't count for anything as it is a redundant statement. I have had a plethora of nokias in the past, without fault, but that doesn't mean nokia is and always will be flawless. Don't take offense to my comments about the n8. At the end of the day it is only a phone. As I said, my comments are facts from years of experience. Ps. No point refering people to a fan based nokia facebook page as it is obviously biased views and would be meaningless.

Stupid American dog with his questionable loyalty, decided to get along with his former boss.
But, I hope it will bring great things.
Nokia is just too big too fail!
Waiting 2 see whether Nokia releases a Meego phone,
Now my next phone is gonna be from Intel with Meego,Intel has just backed Meego with many other big players like BMW.
Nokia shareholders should vote Mr Elop out,yeah it's knives out for Elop.
