PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "You'll remember the 'scroll and select' days of S60, hopefully. Smartphones driven by a navigational d-pad with central 'OK' button. Now look in your hand to see Symbian in Belle Refresh or Belle FP2 form and there's very little similarity. How did we get from one to the other and could things have happened differently? I say yes."

To be honest...

To be honest, I didn't like Symbian at all. Of course I haven't seen Belle, but my girlfriend used one of the touchscreen-only (resistive of course) models for a couple of years and I hated the thing. About the only good thing about it was the battery life, which was distinctly un-smartphone-like ;)

I'm quite happy with my Lumia 620 and not convinced it's a bad thing for Nokia that they went with Windows Phone.
