  • go for samsung, you will find the different world. nokia no more….. simple OS(symbian) is outdated now….

    • Could you please give me the link from where i can read the rest of the detail regarding the dual boot feature of N800?
      Thanks in advance

  • Symbian is well on it’s way to the grave, but still Nokia is bent on squeezing the last penny from it before its death… Symbian is the past- Android, iOS, WP7, BB7 are the future, though the last one is doubtful.

  • LOL, people are taking about iOS, WP7 & Andriod while they are using Nokia with Symbain since long.
