yep people buy nokia s60's because of the high mega pixel camera or 16million colour screen and the brand name. WM is favored by people that need and use the operating system and quality 3rd party software ....camera's etc are very much a secondary issue. Symbian is a bit of a joke but nokia can successfully market virtually anything
Most of the people using nokia's with the symbian os don't even know what an OS is! Symbian is ok but if you want your phone to be a powerful mini computer then your far better using linux,android or windows Mobile.
The panels are what make this phone unique compared to other windows mobile phone. Yet Sony has only made a couple of them. They're really sabotaging themselves that way. If only more third parties would make panels.
iPhone is so successful because Apple has totally ignored mobile operators, that by now were the main customers for phone manufacturers, and instead Apple has focused 100% on needs of end users. Mobile operators were "masters of the universe" and were not only bringing mobile phone manufacturers to the knees (for example: Sharp was forced in Japan by NTT DoCoMo to hide their brand under the battery) but also were simply forcing manufacturers to cancel some phones with useful features. manufacturers were dividing customers into segments and then these manufacturers were trying to release phones that address particular segment - instead of having holistic approach. after several years of claiming the contrary, that in reality Nokia has no idea at all about making software - the most important part of contemporary smartphones. He also reveals that even Nokia (that owns Symbian), itself admits that the only Symbian enthusiasts are those paid (bribed) by Nokia. Nokia even said literally: "Pretty much the only community around [Symbian] S60 is the community we pay to be there". In other words: not only Windows Mobile ecosystem is dwindling but the ecosystem of Symbian is practically dead.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2009winmo is better than symbian
:))) may be! :)
For the rest us - no!
ATT the largest US provider announced months ago not to carry any ! phone with WinMo!
SE switched to Symbian - see Idou!
WinMo is a total failure.
and for some reason X1 is having more problems to run WinMo than other models.
but, if you like it - stick with it! :)))
I think the main function of any phone is to make /receive calls.
X1 has some serious problems with call drops / reception problems.
WinMo is not to be proud of :))))
Rish, 23 Mar 2009How can i turn off the Data package and make my Wifi as permanant connection? When Wifi is not... moreRish, my guess is that you are using xperia on vodafone. Try to read vodafone forum, they make it like that on purpose. TO GET YOUR MONEY. the only way to avoid this is by debranding your xperia. search that in xda-developers forum if you want to debrand it. However, please be aware that it will void your warranty.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2009get real da nokia 5800 is a beautifull fone n it wrks brillantley xperia has loadz of faults l... moreCome on. The 5800? It's all plastic. Even the stylus. You're kidding me right?
The 5800 better than the X1. Men you made my day.
You can't even compare it.
Nokia 5800 is all plastic and a symbian full touchscreen.
X1 is metal, windows mobile and comes with a full qwerty keyboard.
Se reps and PR staff will alway recommend Se over anything.
They go so far that they say you should get the X1 because of WinMo.
Even SE management do not agree with that.
The whole industry is fed up with WinMo.
The new SE Idou naturally does not come with Winmo - its OS Symbian.
The reliability and speed of X1 is just outrages.
No wonder SE will not let HTC make another model for SE.
I have to say i'm very impress with this cellphone
it's my first Windows Mobile experience
overall it's good however windows mobile is still not prefect and not as fast as compare to other cellphone out in the market also languages support really needs to be improve
Does anybody know when this phone is going to be released by Optus in Australia?
