I’ve been a Nokia user right from my first phone. It was no surprise that my first smartphone was a Nokia Symbian device. In short (and long) i was a devoted fan.
When I wanted to upgrade, the options then were the N8 and the E7, which was recently announced. But then Android also had a lot of eye-catching, feature-filled phones. It had only just overtaken Symbian as the number one smartphone OS.
So I bided my time to see how the OS wars played out. In the meantime, I flashed my then ageing 5230 with several modified roms from the Dailymobile forums.
I finally made the move and got a Samsung Galaxy S, which I have been using ever since.
However, Nokia’s recent announcement of the 808 Pureview running Symbian Belle OS with a 41MP camera sensor got me wowed.
See, I personally vowed to myself that I wasn’t going to use anything that smelled Symbian again because being the power user that I am, Symbian did not give me the amount of “tweakability” that I wanted so using an Android phone for me was a match made in heaven.
But I am currently in a dilemma cause inasmuch as I vowed that I wasn’t going to get a Symbian/Belle/Carla device, this phone might just make me change my mind after all.
1. The camera
2. The camera
3. I’d say that i love the OS but sadly that would be a lie so yes the camera .
I just might be buying into this dying platform for the last time, or what do you think?
