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."

Yeah, if you compare 2008 S60v5 with 2012 WP8. If you had tried anything newer than those sluggish first-generation touchscreen Symbian devices, I bet you'd revise your opinion. They had many good points, but completely lacked speed.
Too many options and features are missing from Windows Phone and Nokia itself does not have enough control on its development and that's on of the main reasons why Nokia completely screwed up the transition.
Anyway, it's been repeated over and over, so I'm not going to sound like a broken record again.
