I agree with the positive comments about Symbian. People just can't understand how OS works - especially those pro-Android & pro-iOS. It doesn't mean that there're not good, but somehow there'll be disadvantage in certain way.
I like Symbian since its very first version, well, except S40. It's like a computer where you can access almost any part of the available spaces.
I'm currently using C7, it's my 18th phone now and even bought an N8 for my girl. She said it's rather complicated, but I told her it's better to use something like that, you'll learn more on the mobile technology. Any OS will be easy for you after exploring Symbian.
Symbian, BADA, iOS, Android, Windows, I used all of them. Oh, the Linux on old Motorola as well, still Symbian satisfied me.
Specs really disappointed. Symbian is totally out-to-date OS, even Symbian^3. Especially its architecture, the OS is not that wide-customizable if compare to Android.
The idea of such an sharp, angular device does not appeal to me aesthetically, but more to the point those sharp angles will not take long to start creating holes in peoples' pockets! Not for me thank you.
Why oh why did Nokia not follow the then-troubles Motorola's lead in ditching its own somewhat antiquated OS and switch to Android 2 years ago. Very stupid and it has damaged Nokia substantially. To what extent we have yet to find out. They have of course belatedly done a deal with Microsoft to use its Windows7 OS but personally I do not like the way the it does not fill up the entire screen. It looks like it hasn't rendered properly; very odd. And of course it is Microsoft...enough said!
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2011this phone is ugly, the shape is no proportional, very large when its going to put in pocket, ... morevery large to put in pocket? Then put it inside your mouth. LoL!
Say what you wanna say, think what you wanna think. As if nokia is affected by you. Or that nobody will buy just because of your negative comment. Haha!
I bet lot of people will buy this once its made available in the market.
Parsa, 16 Mar 2011seriously, when would they just UNDERSTAND that SYMBIAN cannot compete with iOS and Android?!?... morewhen you accept the fact that Symbian is better than your iOS & Android, and that millions of people love symbian. LoL!
Come on man, theres no way you can stop people from liking & buying symbian phones or force them to buy iphone or android phone if they dislike it. Its their choice and its none of your business.
So just buy & enjoy the phone you want and they will buy & enjoy their favorite symbian phones. Dont get hurt if they ignore your favorite. LOL!
goodluck, 19 Mar 2011goodluck nokia fans. if u think that android is crappy, ure just a type of person who doesnt k... morehuh? Who say we can't mod Symbian OS, for your information Symbian is the easiest OS to be modded, ever heard of Cooking the Firmware, I bet you don't and I bet you don't even understand it, you know what?! android is crap. Once you jailbreak that's off your warranty go, Syimbian in the other side doesn't, so stop making crap comment android boy, Nokia here stay with old stuff, that's why many people bought nokia phone most, that's just how they do business in making money, who would prefer a laptop with big screen to a phone running 4 gb ram? who would prefer a ferrari with a GTI suzuki? I bet if you prefer GTI suziki, you might as well prefer Symbian than Android
goodluck nokia fans. if u think that android is crappy, ure just a type of person who doesnt know how to mod ur phone,then buy this 'so late symbian'
dont think that 600mhz is enough to run the symbian flatform. not like android with higher hardware. worst phone ever seen in the mobile phones in android.do u know that android is flop os in there google flat form. and they are distrubiting to all company think now which is better ya forward this messaga n buy the nokia phones which is 100% recyclible and save the nature.
4inch screen size, 1.2ghz and 8mp camera with auto focus than it'll be perfect.
680MHz Arm 11 is poor
360 x 640 pixels on a 4" display is poor
256MB on modern smartphone is poor
this must be a poor mans smartphone
having said that poor men can get much higher spec smartphones free on many network contracts.
But hey this is typical of nokia to produce an under performing piece of kit. I bet it ends up expensive too.
TMT, 16 Mar 2011come on 1GHZ is it too much to ask and 1gb ram...it costs more than 500 euro with a crappy fea... moreI have an E7 with the same speed processor ... It's fast with no lag whatsoever!
Symbian doesn't need a 1ghz processor as it is far more efficient that Android OS.
Complaining about such specs is showing you haven't understood how computers work!
seriously, when would they just UNDERSTAND that SYMBIAN cannot compete with iOS and Android?!?!?!!?!?!?!? c'mon already, Shape up........
come on 1GHZ is it too much to ask and 1gb ram...it costs more than 500 euro with a crappy feature..
The cellfone itself is good but my major question is ''Why always Symbian''it would be very beneficial for Nokia to start designang phones with Android OS.Also Nokia phones never have powerful Ram and CPU And this is a considerable point for a cellphone in order to be powerful enough to run HD films and games also the phone would work properly without crashing down.To sum up Nokia needs to take care of this problems to be the best.
E Y M, 15 Mar 2011Not a new symbian!?!This is a Symbian smart phone. It will run on the latest version.
