      plus operating system OLD SYMBIAN

      • ahsan

        gah stop trolling you android fanboys

        nokia has clearly mentioned its strategy you would know if you follow technews . they will use symbian on midrange devices and meego on highend
        the first meego handset is set to be announced in nokia world 2010 . it has been leaked to the net already. furthermore symbian S^1 was a great first attempt at taking symbian to touch devices and it was partly successfull but with S^3 now coming [on the n8] it looks awesome , multiple home screens ,flash buit-in etc . you guys havent even used s^3 and are saying bs about symbian being outdated , symbian still has around 46 % of the marketshare so you better not talk. s^3 and S^4 will take symbian way ahead of where it currently is and still nokia will use it for only midrange and low range devices . MEEGO will rule highend.
        the upcoming n9 will beat to dust any other phone that ever existed , nokia is betting their everything on it just like microsoft is betting a billion dollars on the windows phone 7 furthermore palm os 2.0 is coming out soon too and ios 4.1 was launched recently and android 2.2 was released lately too . it will be great competition but n9 will truimph BELIEVE IT!!!

          NOKIA is loosing and loosing its market. Instead of being biased for one company, try to analyse and see the success of iPhone OS (iOS) and Andorid. Now even RIM (blackberry) is thinking to switch to Android and use open source software instead of paying for high development cost. Nokia will just try to CATCH-UP the pace of Android and iOS but its too late.

          I personally feel that companies who produces mobile hardwares should not try to focus too much on Operating systems because energies gets lost. They should focus on development of highend hardware of mobile and use best OS available in market. If you want to read analysis on Nokia future with current policy, I can cope paste for you.

    DROID X is more successful than DROID 2… So wait for DROID X version for GSM technology. Currently it is launched only in USA.
