PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Like Research in Motion, Nokia is playing catch-up, software-wise, to the iPhone OS and Android, which is funny in a cruel way because both Nokia and RIM have a far larger market share than both of them. Nokia has put out a preview video of their upcoming N8 smartphone, which runs the latest Symbian version, Symbian^3. Nokia, like RIM, has got work to do.

I agree they need to work with the software, Symbian is fine OS for low to mid end devices but for a flagship device like the N8, MeeGo would be much better choice.

Service and hardware wise they keep a high standard, like Ovi Maps seems to be better then Google Maps. And the N8 hardware would be able to compete with the rest of the pack and their camera phones takes good pics.

What I noticed with Symbian is that it dose multitasking well, when I compared it to Android 2.1 where I still have to figure out what is running and how I close them.

the problem is that meego seems far from ready right now, so I doubt that they could release a n8 with meego before 2011, but maybe in the future there will be either a official or unofficial way to install it
