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.

anything coming out of nokia cost more than other company's product in the similar category without any redeeming quality to justify the additional cost.

anything made using symbian has to have hardware, software, usability designed to cater for it's inherent bloat-ness, inefficiency and antiquated, one-for-all, unfocused design philosophy.

these two behemoths share a symbiotic destiny. i am hopeful that the world will rid of them very, very soon.

Impressive how much people here sound like they *never* used any other nokia product than the bling bling but useless highest-end phones. Is there so much people that don't understand that a phone is primarily made to be used for sending text and making phone calles ?

Take some lower-end samsung phones and nokia phones with similar form factor. Throw them on a wall and then let them fall in water. Put back the pieces together after drying them up. It's almost guaranteed that the samsung phone will not work in some way, as they break after ~1 year of normal use in my experience. On the other hand, the nokia one *does* work, in my experience, though I did not try many times so it's not a statistically valid result ^^'
