Change Is In The Air: Goodbye to Symbian?

Posted by

Symbian3
It is December and a good time to take stock of the year ending. Looking back at 2011, I have owned 14 mobile devices this year.

As a long-time Symbian fan, I find it intriguing that of those 14 mobiles that I acquired this year, only 1 was Symbian – and I didn’t buy it. One. Go figure.

Of those 14 devices, 5 ran Android OS, 2 ran BlackBerry OS, 2 Windows Phone, 1 MeeGo, 1 WebOS, 1 Symbian, and 2 iOS.

I have come to terms with the fact that I am moving away from Symbian as my primary platform. It still meets my needs as a platform, but there are simply no new devices exciting enough to keep an adventurous person like me hooked on it.

And what’s Mister Mobility without mobile adventure and excitement?

I love something in every one of the existing platforms, but each of them also has one or two things that don’t go down well with me.

Put mass storage in Windows Phone, and I would signup right now. Same for iOS. BlackBerry ticks all the specs, but that platform lacks great cameras (one of my critical needs), as well as the fact that there isn’t much excitement there either.

Android is exciting, but at a killing level. You buy an Android smartphone today and it is almost a grandpa in another one month. That kind of excitement means that I will be cycling through Android phones at an alarming rate.

MeeGo is dead. WebOS is in a coma. Bada? I don’t know. Bada is a poor copy of Android. if I want Android, I go buy Android.

Here I am evaluating all my available options. Whatever I decide, I promise you months and years of exciting reviews and stories ahead. Of course, regardless of what platform I adopt, I will still continue to purchase devices from other platforms for review purposes, so no-one feels left out.

One thing is for sure, without exciting devices, I have lost the passion for Symbian. I used to be “Symbian Inside”. Now, I am “Symbian Over And Out“.

  1. That is what we’ve been saying! Symbian os refused to grow from old stone age, the period in which an earlyman strikes two stones to get fire. My belief is that the fanboys will confess one after the other how symbian is a living copse.

  2. Now, Mr Mobility has me confused about the true meaning of excitement – mobile_device speaking

    excitement
    ? noun
    1 the excitement of seeing a leopard in the wild: THRILL, pleasure, delight, joy; informal kick, buzz; N. Amer. informal charge.
    2 excitement in her eyes: EXHILARATION, elation, animation, enthusiasm, eagerness, anticipation, feverishness; informal pep, vim, zing.
    3 (SEXUAL) AROUSAL, passion, stimulation, titillation……
    seems stratified into two -hardware, and software.

    The software aspect is the more interesting part to me.

    Processors speeds, camera spex usually makes me sopirific.

    Well made mobile_software, meanwhile-gives me an adrenaline rush. App Junkie? You bet!

    For some it is the hardware. Different folks-different strokes. Different kinds of Addicts (++ shrugs ++)

    There Is this cacophonous insistence that Symbian is dead,

    Meanwhile, Qt is being revamped, new software is bring made for Symbian, new versions of old apps are being released at frenetic paces, and the OS itself is being embellished on the UX level (Anna, Belle, Carla..)
    I will certainly like to see Symbian go out in a SLOW blaze of glory – if it has to go out.
    .
    .
    As it stands, the other wannabe OSes have one CRITICAL shortcoming or the other. Too critical for my liking.

    As long as these inadequacies exist on these newer OSes, i will keep getting my utilitarian value from Symbian powered phones – via the available overabundance of software !

  3. jikong,

    That is what we’ve been saying! Symbian os refused to grow from old stone age

    I’m sorry, but you are wrong about that. Have you used any of the new Symbian Belle devices? Belle rocks to high heavens. Symbian is the most matured mobile platform right now, and the average UI has been made excellent with Belle.

    Don’t misread my article please. My moving away from Symbian is not because the OS lacks anything. It is the most complete OS standing today – resource efficiency, functionality, and a fluid UI put in one package.

    New Symbian devices are really good. The problem is that Nokia has shifted attention elsewhere and are putting most of their efforts into producing great, exciting devices on their new platform, Windows Phone.

    Good is good (and Symbian is good), but I need the excitement of flagship devices, and unfortunately Nokia isn’t likely to invest that kind of effort in Symbian anymore.

    Please read and comment with understanding. Don’t use my article to justify your beef for Symbian 😉

  4. What i hate about android is how a good phone can become trash in a few months, and its so hard to buy them in nigeria

  5. Windows phone seems like a beautiful bride that can’t cook or do simple chores.

    Symbian unfortunately refused to mature “early”. Anna and Belle updates came when the handwriting was already on the wall….

    Android is becoming too crowded! I’m scared to buy one because the next month my device would be obsolete like Yomi said.

    Blackberry is well, blackberry. CRAP! Pinging, push emails and ease of use in nigeria makes it useful in Nigeria.

    IOs is too Americanized for my liking.

    The mobile phone world is just a conundrum!

  6. DrNO,

    Well said. Indeed, the mobile world is a mess right now, in my opinion.

    I do disagree with this though:

    Symbian unfortunately refused to mature “early”

    Symbian is the most matured mobile OS around, so the quoted statement is clearly not true. Perhaps you meant to say that Symbian’s UI did not evolve to catch up with the times early enough, which is the truth.

  7. Android is exciting, but at a killing level. You buy an Android smartphone today and it is almost a grandpa in another one month. That kind of excitement means that I will be cycling through Andro

    This one false statement in this article unless we’re agreeing that it applies to all mobile devices right now and people are already quoting it out of proportion because it came from Mr. Mobility.

    I bought my phone some 9 months ago and it is still serving me well even as I will admit that I would want to purchase one of the newest Android phones, and I’m sure everyone here would want the latest or best within their favoured platform if money is not an issue.

    Again if anyone here thinks this statement is close to fact, can anyone explain why Nokia N8 hasn’t made every other Symbian phone obsolete.

    Finally, before now most Symbian fans here believed Symbian is the bomb and now except for Eye.bee.kay, all of you seem to think that it is time to move on just because Mr. Mobility said it is time.

    Don’t people have their opinions and choices for petes sake?

  8. Harry,

    This one false statement in this article unless we’re agreeing that it applies to all mobile devices right now

    False statement? Finally, you have convinced me that you don’t know the mobile industry. I won’t even debate on that point with you.

    Finally, before now most Symbian fans here believed Symbian is the bomb and now except for Eye.bee.kay, all of you seem to think that it is time to move on just because Mr. Mobility said it is time.

    Are you sure that the guys who have responded so far are the Symbian fans on this site? Come on, Harry! You sound downright pathetic at times.

    Symbian OS is still the bomb (if you cared to read my responses to comments, you would have read that), but with a new focus on Windows Phone, it has been relegated to being a mid-tier platform. As such, no exciting new flagship devices have been released since the N8/E7. Flagships are what drive excitement and buzz for any platform.

    Seriously, the Nokia N8 honestly makes every other Symbian phone obsolete. No-one who owns one (and has upgraded to Belle) wants to buy another Symbian phone, no matter how new. This is because the N8 was/is flagship. Nothing else on the platform touches it.

    Note too that i did not say that it is time to move on. I’m hoping that people will learn to read properly – in context. My job requires a certain amount of excitement from newer better specified devices. Symbian does not provide that anymore because of Nokia’s new focus. I wrote about why I need to drop Symbian (not because its dead or lame), but because its no longer a top-range platform.

    Again, apart from EyeBeeKay, the folks who have responded are not necesarilly Symbian fans. Even at that, while I need to embrace a more vibrant platform, it is still my position that Symbian is the most matured and most functional smartphone platform around (I’ve said so above, but you didn’t read it or you choose to ignore it).

    If Nokia throws out new Symbian flagships, I’d bite in a minute.

  9. What i hate about android is how a good phone can become trash in a few months,

    I’m scared to buy one because the next month my device would be obsolete like Yomi said.

    @DrNo,@Good:
    what is wrong with obsolescence?

    Is a mobile phone a fashion accessory, or what? Kindly forgive my apparent obscurantisn!

    Are you placing the importance of trendiness over functionality, or WHAT?

    just asking..

  10. I’m caught between acquiring a windows phone and an Android (probably Galaxy S II or Nexus)…SymbainOs is not just getting all the support it needs…

    Well my own rule on acquiring a smartphone: read a lot of reviews, do research, ask people that have made us of the phone..check online ratings…do all these and go for the best so your device won’t be easily phased out when another hits stores…

  11. But that is the problem with android, they are so expensive.

    What made me hate symbian was how they put s60v3 on nokia e5 only for them to abandon it like few months after, even though e5 has the hardware for anna and the rest it was treated like a step child. Imagine the facebook app for nokia *spits* or is it the lack of twitter app *smone will say gravity but that is paid for can there not be twitter for nokia*.

    The way nokia played things really annoyed me, my e5 is nt up to 1 year and already it seems so old, and the confusion rages what phone to buy???

    Finaly the best, the new nokia 1280. You will never lack a software updat.

  12. @eye.bee.kay phones are kinda like fashion statement, as a policy i can not use a very popuar cellphone, it must be rara, what else would make me buy the nokiaa e5 immediately it arrived nigeria *then i was a smartphone novice i tell you* at 45k.
    @Mr mobility. Can you believe that i never knew you actually sell phones, and at such cheap rates….. I wonder where i have been

  13. Are you sure that the guys who have responded so far are the Symbian fans on this site? Come on, Harry ! You sound downright pathetic at times.

    Downright pathetic? Maybe you are right but I also say the same thing for you. For instance your tone implies that the rate new Android phones are coming out is a bad thing but ironically, the lack of high spec’ed new Symbian phones is your reason for wanting to move on.

    Again you admitted that Nokia N8 made other Symbian phones obsolete but you’ve never suggested before now that that is a bad thing.

    You see, you always have a subtle way of putting Android down.

  14. Harry,

    For instance your tone implies that the rate new Android phones are coming out is a bad thing but ironically, the lack of high spec’ed new Symbian phones is your reason for wanting to move on.

    It is a bad thing for someone like me who is looking for excitement. What’s it with you not being able to read in context? From my article:

    Android is exciting, but at a killing level. You buy an Android smartphone today and it is almost a grandpa in another one month. That kind of excitement means that I will be cycling through Android phones at an alarming rate.

    See the context? That’s how to read and understand.

    Yes; the lack of high spec’ed Symbian phones is my reason for wanting to move on. Correct. But you dont expect that i want to embark on an adventure in which i churn out over N90,000 every three months to stay in the loop of current flagships; do you?

    Come on, iOS gets a new flagship, but once a year. BlackBerry does, but not so often as Android. Same for Windows Phone.

    Does that translate to Android’s high cycle being a bad thing? No. But for me (looking for excitement; I repeat it again, so you don’t miss the point), it is scary.

    Again you admitted that Nokia N8 made other Symbian phones obsolete but you’ve never suggested before now that that is a bad thing.

    It doesn’t matter when I say it. We all have different tolerance levels. I have waited long enough for a new flagship. Now I have said it. That’s much more than you are known for. Everything Android is perfect in your world and must be bitterly defended.

    You see, you always have a subtle way of putting Android down.

    That’s pure rubbish coming from one of the most biased minds I know. And its rubbish coming from someone whose best attribute is putting others down once they have a different view of Android and questioning their motives at every turn.

    You stubbornly ignore every time that i have agreed with you and others on certain strengths and pluses of the Android platform. Its shocking how every time anything negative is mentioned about Android, you grow a persecution complex. That’s pure bull, sir.

    Of course, it also fails to register in your mind that my article mentions that of the 14 mobiles I acquired this year, 5 of them are Android. Do the math. Get rid of that attitude and relax. Some of us can love a platform or device without ignoring its faults or limitations. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

  15. @mrmobility and all phone guru’s and freaks
    Excuse me.
    Who has noticed that etiblaze no longer installs java apps on phones *eg 2go,opera mini etc* to texperience it do try downloading a java app on your cell. If you get a diconnected alert let me know, that is my problem. This problem has plagued me for MONTHS now *serious*, and etisalat customer care is confused,they dont believe me. I would want to know if its from my sim *not from the phone because when i put my glo sim the download goes through* or if its everywhere
    thanks

  16. OOPS! torpedo, gpmg, rpg. symbian is the all around winner. resource efficiency versus fashionista.

  17. You stubbornly ignore every time that i have agreed with you and others on certain
    strengths and pluses of the Android platform. Its shocking how every time anything negative is mentioned about Android , you grow a persecution complex. That’ s pure bull , sir

    You don’t think I have ever agreed with you or even acknowledged the strength of Symbian here before? You see, everything you’ve accused me of, you also have some element of it. I defend Android with whatever adjective you choose, you do same for Symbian/Nokia.

    The bottom line is you will rather everybody view the mobile world through your eyes and then I won’t be the most biased mind you have ever known.

    Well I’m sorry for that. I always have my own evaluations. Maybe I should learn to keep them to myself so you don’t keep reminding people of what my reputation is supposed to be.

  18. Harry, dear Harry.

    You don’t think I have ever agreed with you or even acknowledged the strength of Symbian here before? You see, everything you’ve accused me of, you also have some element of it. I defend Android with whatever adjective you choose, you do same for Symbian/Nokia.

    Another cover-up response. If you are now subtly admitting (without specifically making a statement of admission) that I have agreed on the strengths of Android at various times, please be man enough to also admit that this statement you made – “You see, you always have a subtle way of putting Android down” – was out of line and totally wrong.

    It was that statement that i was addressing when I typed the portion of my comment that you cited. Again, you have nicely taken it out of context and ignored the focus.

    If I always find a way to subtly put Android down, as you say, I couldn’t have in any way ever agreed about or promoted the strengths of Android. I certainly wouldn’t have spent my resources acquiring 5 Android devices out of 14 mobile devices in one year.

    But if you insist that I always look for a way to put Android down – inspite of my heavy investments in Android, and inspite of the helpful articles on this blog that I keep churning out for Android users, then I was right about pathetic.

    I give more helpful tips to Android users via articles on this blog in one year than you probably could in a lifetime, and all you do is hide under the cloak of the internet’s anonymity to accuse me of maligning that platform at every turn. Shame.

    And no; I doubt that you have ever once acknowledged anything good of Symbian. i daresay that you despise the platform (and probably everything Nokia) with a passion. You have dismissed it at every opportunity.

    I am not like you in anyway. While I have no problems pointing out the weaknesses and strengths of all platforms – including Symbian, you, you have only one purpose: defend Android with your last strength. You, sir, are the Quintessential fanboy.

    The bottom line is you will rather everybody view the mobile world through your eyes and then I won’t be the most biased mind you have ever known.

    Horribly biased is a sound description of your position, actually. The evidences speak for themselves.

    Well I’m sorry for that. I always have my own evaluations. Maybe I should learn to keep them to myself so you don’t keep reminding people of what my reputation is supposed to be.

    I doubt that you are sorry about anything. If you were sorry, you would change and not keep questioning people’s motives. The other time you did it and sent a private apology via email, I thought you were a gentleman. But then you have done it again and again, and not just to my person alone.

    I will keep reminding you of your reputation as long as you keep acting that way. It is bad and sad that you do it again and again.

    Should you choose to keep your evaluations to yourself, I am very certain that you would agree with me that the world won’t come to an end on account of that. Cheers.

  19. @good if you use an S60V3 or s60v5, you will Have problem downloading java unless you create an access point manually and activate it in web browser or request for etisalat settings by sendin ‘settings’ to 790. (the manual option is better)

  20. When ppl ask me recently. Which smartphone should i buy? Its hard for me to recommend symbian simply because there are no new exciting symbian phones..

    now for instance you ve 35thousand naira and you wanna buy a phone. Which relatively new symbian phone can that buy? Only nokia 500! Or you will rather go for archaic phones like 5800, 5230, E71, E75, E63, E5, C5-03….the newer options are just not there..ppl are not interested in such phones again. They will rather buy a used blackberry(thats whats in vogue)..

    Now going to android, you ve so many very recent smartphones 35k will buy..not necessarily high spec’d but they are new and exciting! If symbian is thinking of mid-tier they better churn out more devices to give options unless or else android will dominate mid-tier in nigeria by 2012!

  21. Shayman,

    When ppl ask me recently. Which smartphone should i buy? Its hard for me to recommend symbian simply because there are no new exciting symbian phones

    Well said!

    I was shocked when I did an inventory and found that I hadn’t purchased a single Symbian device this year. A few good, mid-tier Symbian Belle devices were released, but certainly nothing exciting or challenging enough in that direction.

  22. @ShayNan, We seem to always forget thaT Android is an OS, while Nokia is ONE company, battling against the horde of Robots.

    This fact is worth bearing in mind when articulating our position..

  23. EyeBeeKay, while your point is true, the real issue is that Nokia’s smartphone energies are now mostly channeled in the direction of Windows Phone now. Since they had adopted WP as primary smartphone platform, that makes sense. That’s where the majority of the excitement and buzz will take place.

    Look at Samsung – Android is their primary smartphone platform, so that’s where all their exciting devices are. When was the last time anyone drooled over a BadaOS phone from Samsung? Or even a Windows Phone device from Samsung?

    Primary platform = excitement/buzz.

  24. Another cover -up response. If you are now subtly admitting (without specifically making a statement of admission ) that I have agreed on the strengths of Android at various times, please be man enough to also admit that this statement you made – “You see, you always have a subtle way of putting Android down ” – was out of line and totally wrong. It was that statement that i was addressing

    My apologies. I rephrase: you have a subtle way of putting Android down sometimes.

    Android is exciting, but at a killing level. You buy an Android smartphone today and it is almost a grandpa in another one month. That kind of excitement means that I will be cycling through Android phones at an alarming rate.

    The most exciting Android phone on this side of the planet at moment is Samsung Galaxy II based on availability. It was released since April of this year but became available here in Nigeria since June. That’s some six months now and still counting.

    The next Android phone making waves globally right now is Samsung Galaxy Nexus S. It is yet to be available here.

    For someone that had used five Android phones alone plus seven other phones from other platforms within the year, I can’t see how six months is supposed to translate to killing or equal to one month for obsolescence.

    Now can you see that absolute air of sensationalism.

  25. Harry,

    Thanks for the half-hearted apology. Of course, I am not surprised that you consider my telling the truth about Android the same as putting it down. I know you well enough for that.

    The most exciting Android phone on this side of the planet at moment is Samsung Galaxy II based on availability. It was released since April of this year but became available here in Nigeria since June. That’s some six months now and still counting.

    The next Android phone making waves globally right now is Samsung Galaxy Nexus S. It is yet to be available here.

    For someone that had used five Android phones alone plus seven other phones from other platforms within the year, I can’t see how six months is supposed to translate to killing or equal to one month for obsolescence.

    The Samsung Galaxy S II might be the most desirable/exciting for you, but again you do not really think that you are representative of the Android ecosystem; do you? Here are a number of equally desirable/exciting – if not more desirable/exciting in different ways – Android smartphones that have hit the market in the last six months:

    1. HTC Sensation XE
    2. Motorola RAZR XT910
    3. HTC EVO 3D
    4. Samsung Galaxy Note
    5. LG Nitro HD

    The above list is not even exhaustive. I can easily add to it. As for availability here in Nigeria, I am not limited by that.

    The sensationalism you attribute to me exists only in your matrix. You read and see only what you want to see.

    Think of it – I went through five Android phones in a year when it wasn’t my preferred OS. Perhaps you can put that excitingly imaginative mind of yours into picturing what things would be like if I were to make it my platform of choice?

  26. Now, this is why I always get entertained whenever Harry & Yomi take up their dwelling swords, and lunge!

    Logic and illogic at play – in an infernal battle of augmentative supremacy!

    You can not help but applaud.

    Observing this debate keenly….

  27. If we are talking about 6 months like cycle based on someone who would always want the best, why are you populating the list with phones released this December or even those released in October and November. That still gives six month interval.

    Just like you noted, those phones are just about of equal specifications with little differences and none can claim outright power of making the other obsolete.

  28. A good narrative, Yomi. And a gruelling lyrical battle between the legendary Mr. Mobility and the indefatigable Harry Echemco. Most of the discourse have been argued earlier before. However, I’d put one or two impressions of the article down.

    The Android way is cool. I’ve not adopted Android not because of the data problem but due to the User Interface. It is still catching up where iOS is concerned. However, with the introduction of Ice Cream Sandwich; I have to say that I am now officially tempted. But I have to wait for other devices to catch up on ICS first before making up my mind. For now the Galaxy Nexus is just one phone! And it is too few to make a choice. Let’s look at what CES and Mobile World Congress would bring us! And by the way the cost of the mighty SGSII and the immaculate Motorola RZR would’ve dropped too by then. *Hopefully*

    And concerning Symbian; I’ve always said that it has always been a little too late with Nokia! People always say that Synbian is a matured OS. But I always tell myself think otherwise! Why? Perhaps, Symbian remains matured because it was the unchallenged reigning champions for years! A local Champion, if you ask me! Initial Gra Gra, if you must bring it home. It took Android less than 3 years to unseat Symbian from the throne. And it took iOS less than 4 years to manage the same fit!

    If you claim Symbian is matured in features, you should should also deem it necessary to acknowledge that Symbian is also immature in user interface and intuitiveness. No one should retort that I’m a fan boy because as well as iOS I also have two Symbian devices in my arsenal of Smartphones! In fact my primary mobile phone devices are two Symbians!

    In likewise, the absurd policy of Elop has tended to make a mockery of the legendary Symbian platform. Instead of allowing Symbian run side by side with WP7, Nokia felt killing Symbian would make their utopia! Whatever that is! some attribute this own-goal scoring to a 1-2 billion dollars “bribe” from Microsoft. Some say Elop is a mole. But whatever, I’m sad to see Symbian go! Barely 5 years ago it was the only option, if you wanted to go the Smartphone way! Okay okay! At least it was THE DOMINANT option even if you factor in Windows mobile and palm OS!

    I intend getting the Lumia 800 as my next primary device whenever it comes into this shores. But a gut feeling tells me that I may actually prefer my E6 to it! Nevertheless, the Geek in me takes precedence so The Lumia 800 is a trial phone for me. I’ve use Blackberry, iOS, Symbian, and Android; only Wndows phone left out of the equation. And the Lumia gives me that opportunity to see why Elop decides to putmall his eggs in the basket of WP7! But I have that gut feeling that I’d be disappointed.

    Concerning iOS, I pass! Yes, I’d upgrade to the next iPad (iPad 3 or whatever the name). No, I’d pass on the iPhone 4S. Yes, I may go back to iOS with the iPhone 5!

    Phew. That said. My analysis folks!!!

  29. Harry,

    This is going to be my last response to you under this topic.

    Like I said earlier, I can easily add to that my hurriedly compiled list. Here: HTC Sensation 4G (June), HTC Amaze 4G (Sept), SE Xperia Arc S (Sept), and HTC Sensation XL (October).

    Just like you noted, those phones are just about of equal specifications with little differences and none can claim outright power of making the other obsolete.

    Bah, you call those differences little now because it suits you; yet had no problem claiming that “the next Android phone making waves globally right now is Samsung Galaxy Nexus S“, a technically inferior device to the Galaxy S II, and much more inferior to some of the other listed devices running 1.5GHz dual-core processors. Minus Android 4.0 and larger display, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Galaxy S II (and these other guys) in many ways.

    With you, moving the goal post around during a match is no issue. The differences in features of newer devices on any platform are almost never gargantuan, but they are differences all the same and they make those devices interesting and exciting to loyalists of each platform.

    This is where I rest my case. Do enjoy the rest of the discussion with others.

  30. Mr. Mobility; that’s my point exactly. Minus, Ice Cream Sandwich; the Samsung Galax II beats the Gslaxy Nexus hands down in a blow to blow Features duel! I twitted about this not long ago from @dfewgoodmen .

    Finally, when all those other smartphones you’ve mentioned above gets the ICS update early next year, it would become a crowded space and suddenly the Galaxy nexus would not seem compelling any more!

  31. Harry & mr Mobility just made my evenin.
    classic! beta than any rap battle in recent times. 🙂

    Men just use fones & get gud value for ur money,at least dats wt i do & dts y symbian has been an OS to contend wit for a long time. Now all this oda OS’s are bringin value for the money too,so competition is tough now. Like dey say the only constant thing is change! wateva OS dt rocks ur boat now,mite not rock it in the nxt 2 yrs & dts honestly wat it is.

  32. it got really dirty! let me repeat my earlier statement.henry or harry’s problem is not the issue of goal post movenent,rather he lacks technical depth.

    i have said its always difficult to beat yomi,though possible.reason,he lives mobile and mobility matters.

    henry needs to learn the SUBMARINE technique of debating and dielectric arguements. Above all Yomi is not always right,hes just always smart and correct.Hes my 2MSc thesis on blogger psychology

  33. Hi Beezle,

    You spoke well. People should simply use what works for them and be free to say why it works for them.

    But it is absolute nonsense for anyone to jump in almost all the time to accuse another of running down his betrothed platform, simply because facts about that platform’s weaknesses are stated.

    Speech is free; but facts are sacred. All platforms have their strengths and weaknesses. No amount of fanboyism will change that.

  34. Symbian Vs. Android…always an interesting debate. One has Elop(ed), while the other gets a Sandwich…
