PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In an ill omen for Symbian fans, the publisher of Symbian-Guru is abandoning the platform: "As of today, I will no longer be updating, and will be purchasing an Android-powered smartphone - my new Nexus One should arrive tomorrow. I've been a Nokia fanboy since 1999, and a Symbian fanboy since I got my Nokia 6620 in summer of 2004. Since then, I've personally owned 10+ different Symbian-powered smartphones, and have reviewed nearly every Symbian-powered smartphone that's been released in the past 3 years or so. I've tried to use all of Nokia's various products and services to the best of my ability, and I just can't do it anymore." His post continues with an exploration of the sorry state of Symbian and Nokia that only a once-true-believer could have written.

I just switched from a Nokia 5800 to a Nexus One (now running Android OS 2.2 'Froyo') and the difference between the two devices is like night and day. The only drawback I can so so far is the less than stellar battery life of the N1 compared to the 5800. But the wealth of Android apps and the fact that I'm running a Linux powered phone makes it all worth while.
