quote: Also, symbian is not a con.
quote: lacks features and functionality.
quote: Android's UI imitates iOS (apple) and maemo (nokia).
quote: No doubt it's slick, once you've spend enough time trying to figure things out. I'm also able to get work done quickly on my N8. It looks great, it's feature packed, I can lay out everything the way I want, and it just works.
quote: I'm sorry you don't think symbian looks pretty enough. The nokia store has about as many apps as the WP store, not to mention not every app for symbian requires it going through the store. I can download any .sisx file from the internet and install it
quote: Tell me again, how are you not biased?
quote: I dont want to get into an argument,but WP doesn't support lots of basic stuff out of box to downright missing /impossible (codecs,otg,mass storage,BT profiles etc)
quote: Belle FP1 improves things a bit.
quote: There's a lot of new "graphical flair" in Belle that's not present in past releases by Nokia or Apple. It is, however very similar to similar graphics found in Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which came out first. So yes, copying Android.
quote: It may "just work" as you say, but the virtual keyboard is less reliable, you simply can not argue that. And I've played with an N8.
quote: I would argue that it is you who needs to spend some time with the Lumia 900. It puts the N8 to shame and makes it feel downright slow.
quote: Even a moderately gifted Chimpanzee could probably use one.
quote: About as many?
quote: And pray tell me, how many of those are going to receive ongoing support over the next year or two as developers bail from what is a defunct platform. You cannot change the fact that developers are not going to continue to update their Symbian apps by and large.
quote: And most important IT'S EOL !
quote: I am biased towards my reality.
quote: Enjoy your Symbian phone
quote: Exactly how much is Microsoft paying you, Jason? LOL come on.
quote: The shine has worn off people want a phone that works. I dont even mind if they go to iPhone its much better than Android.
quote: Inclusion of Symbian is asinine. Releasing new phones with obsolete software can never be wise.
quote: Releasing WAY overpriced phones to get a bit more image quality from the camera doesn't seem very wise to me. $699? Who honestly wants to buy this?
quote: That's not "a bit more", it's the difference from smartphone pictures and a full-blown digital camera on your phone.
quote: Still agree with the ops that it's moronic to ship this with Symbian Belle, though, particularly with developers fleeing from that platform en masse.
quote: Dude people aren't even buying digital cameras all that much anymore! Smart phones, even with their inferior cameras, are slowly but surely marginalizing the dedicated camera industry. When the average person just want's pictures to send to their friends and family or put on Facebook, smart phones are convenient and "good enough" for most uses.
quote: UPDATE: We incorrectly stated that the Nokia 808 PureView would only work with T-Mobile at 2G speeds. This was caused by an error in the spec sheet. We’re sorry about any confusion. The Nokia 808 PureView works just fine with T-Mobile in the United States.
