PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Symbian might have been taking a beating over the past few months, but that doesn't mean the world's most popular smartphone platform (I doubt the installed base hase been overtaken by Android yet, although I might be mistaken) is just going to sit idly by. While Nokia gets its first Windows Phone 7 devices ready, work on Symbian^3 continues, and the Dutch (yeahaw!) product manager for Nokia Benelux has confirmed that a massive overhaul of the platform will be pushed to phones later this year [Dutch].

I'll join nostalgia club ;)

I have E61i, and love it.
Enjoying: PyS60, PuTTY, real-time Mail for Exchange synced with my Google account (incl. calendar, contacts), Podcasting, various Internet services, BT file system in Total Commander, ...
Dislike: it could be faster though, it's H\W is limited compared to today's beasts

On topic: I really dislike new grid ala desktop design and hope that mobile designers will get over it very soon

On a somewhat related note to PyS60, I wonder if it is possible to write apps for s^3 with python and qt. That would be neat. It would also give me some motivation to learn python. The closest thing to python I know is ruby.

I *believe* that QT has python bindings, but I could be wrong on that. Definitely something to look into though, that would inspire me to dig into python again as well.

I don't know about s^3, but about learning Py - you learn modules as needed, as Python grammar is simplest it can get
just run: "import antigravity" and you already float ;)

2!

Suddenly it's all "Nokia sucks...", "Symbian is far gone...". But all I see is people around me changing their devices from one Nokia to another NEW NOKIA!!!
