Symbian was a success not because it was good (i have been using Symbian phones since 2007), but because of lack of competition. Many friends of mine having Nokia Symbian at that times did not even know what Smartphone meant. In lack of competition Nokia got lazy, relaxed too much and missed the 'threat' of new competitors, who quickly deprived Nokia of crown.
Also, Nokia did use to have a high quality Hardware back then, it still does, but it is NOT cutting edge technology any more. Nokia is lagging behind from competitors with new technologies and innovations. What Nokia still has is that 'Good old name' of high quality and millions of disappointed fans.
What i agree on is that clearly Windows-Nokia co-operation benefits Windows much more than Nokia, so far at elast...

it is your right to comments but as you wish, but please be an educated person and avoid those kind of stereotypes like Africans or Asians don't have money to buy smartphones.
those are ideas based on ignorance and tend to be racists.
If there is no option of video calling, what's the use of the front camera?

nokia lumia updates http://ideasbegin.com/2012/07/nokia-lumia-software-update/
I'm android fan & using galaxy w. After using lumia 800 for a week i must admit that this lumia is very fast and smooth when scrolling here and there, no hang and delay compared to my phone. Very easy & straight to the point when installing and uninstall application. Pls take note that lumia 800 is only single core but it's very fast.So for those who have not try it, my advice is try it first then you can comment either it's good or not. For me,i'm waiting for windowphone 8. Adios...
Nokia was hit because of it's good hardware and it's own software i.e. symbian. They dropped their own reliable software and tie up with microsoft, which was already not so successful. Now nokia have the same hardware quality but their software has much restrictions unlike android. So reason of failure is microsoft, not the nokia itself. Need more example? What was the need to announce that current lumia phones will not get windows 8 phone update, at the time when nokia just launched its flagship lumia 900 worldwide. This was not necessary and could be revealed after nokia started shipping with windows 8 models. I know it would be cheating with customers but what about that who have already purchased lumia 700,800. So microsoft don't care about nokia. it sells its software to nokia as well its rivals samsung,lg etc. Nokia is loyal but microsoft is not.
WTF? We need an Audio Test!!! Is there a difference between 800 and 900?
where is the traditional audio quality test? GSMARENA Team please update this!
the perfect mobile should be a mix:
the body of nokia n9
the performance inside of samsung galaxy s3
the camera of nokia 808 pureview
the music player and the headphones powerful output of apple
For Nokia its no turning back. They have let Meego Go.. But Lumia 900 doing what it expected to do. As for haters, they can't stand up with market success of Lumia 900. All phones are good all have bad as well. So get over bashing. And stop living your life in mobile phone and its applications.
