re: Nokia 808 PureView: Monster Camera, Dead Software
The fact that there were cheers when it was mentioned that the 808 runs Symbian Belle should tell Nokia something, and if smart, they should re-assess the demise of Symbian. Not everybody is enamored with iOS and Android, and into gimmics; some people just want to have a serious phone. Lot of Symbian users in the world. If Nokia were to further support Symbian, I would not hesitate to buy the 808, and it could certainly be a splashing success--but with Symbian at dead end, why bother? Although I love my N8, I am wondering if that was a mistake to buy--not that there is anything wrong with the phone, in fact I like it very much, and it is "cool" to have a N8 when everybody else has iPhone and Android--what do they know, I can do most things they can do with their phones--sort of a snob factor. The mistake is committing to a dead OS--if Nokia kept Symbian alive, no question lots of loyal Nokia customers would still buy Nokia. I am still also using my 10 year old Nokia 6310i--it is so reliable and dependable--never a problem--that was why I chose Nokia when I upgraded. A repeat customer is better and easier to get than a new customer.
