PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia might not be gaining a lot of mindshare in the smartphone world with its Symbian operating system, but fact of the matter is that Symbian is still the most popular smartphone operating system in the world - by a long shot. Today, Nokia officially unveiled three new smartphones that will run the latest iteration of the mobile platform, Symbian^3.

I don't know about Symbian. I owned several Nokia phones where my latest was an N95 and I never liked Symbian, too messy and just not user friendly.

It's just too boring compared to all the other stuff in the market right now. Look at the video alone, the phone looks so old-fashion. And then he demonstrates multi-touch like we never seen that before come on.

The reason Symbian is the most used OS is because it is installed on $10 phones, not because it is so good so as long as Nokia keeps Symbian alive I'll keep running away from Nokia and buy something else.
