PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In its struggle to find willing customers, Nokia just announced yet another flagship phone - the Nokia Lumia 1020. It's essentially a Lumia 920/925, but with the Nokia 808's PureView camera bolted on. Also, it's exclusive to AT&T in the US, for $299 with a two year contract, which is a steep price. So, who gets the honour to be the first to claim that this, yes this Lumia will turn Nokia around?

Several reviews noted that, while the 808 was one kind of a famous and impressive piece of a device, the phone was, well, a phone, to begin with. The point of having such a 41M CCD was more of a technological breakthrough than really a useful device. Especially considering the ridiculous screen resolution (640*360) and the aging Symbian OS served with a mono core 1 GHz CPU staged with 512 MB of RAM.

Jesus, would you please stop preaching to this "aging Symbian" choir already? It's almost two years since the Burning Platform, and the "non-burning" one is still nowhere near feature parity (==usefulness) with the old Symbian. It's still only a pretty picture on a touchscreen and looks to stay that way at least for half a year (until WP Blue or whatever that major upgrade will be...).

Belle came late. And what's selling is Android, Symbian no more. Live with it. I recon Symbian being a nice OS, but it lacks multimedia orientation, is difficult to code for.

I grant you that, the Symbian C++ dialect was suicide-provoking, but things were moving in the right direction with Qt. The current "solution" still lacks even some basic telephony stuff and screams to anyone that bothers to listen that "I was designed by a gang of Steve Jobs wannabes".
