What about the SMS attack that's been in the news recently? The exploited vulnerability also exists on S60 3rd ed devices.

I believe the 3d hardware was an experiment, and Nokia just didn't see enough advantage in using them to keep going.

As for GLES for user interfaces, GLES 1.1 isn't that well suited for UI stuff,...

I agree, it's sad that they choose bad games to promote the platform, but this is what happens in the business world. It's not like the people making the decisions have actually played the games a...

I agree with the main point of the article, it's about bill of materials, and the GPU would go unused in most phones, but there are a few errors in the article:

GPU's are not exclusively for 3d,...

Saying that MacOS is just better for beginners is really stretching it. Of course it's easier to do real work on the platform you're used to. To me, a Linux user since more than ten years, Windows...

More pixels

No Unregistered, going from QVGA to VGA doesn't double the number of pixels on the screen, it quadruples it. The performance degradation is most noticable in software rendered games (as Steve...

Okay, here's my comment again, without the taunts. :) And I hope it's not too far off-topic.

The "slow" and "fast" ratings in the speed category seem a bit arbitrary compared with the others. Is that perceived speed, or are you comparing clock frequencies?

The stuff that's available in the download app differs between phones. I can't see any of these games on my 6120.

And as for Java vs. Symbian native code, it's just economics. Most phones out...

davidmaxwaterma: They might just not be very interested in supporting old versions of S60. As you're a developer, you should know how much time it takes to port code between 2nd and 3rd edition.

Lies, damned lies etc.

The definition of what a smartphone is does not seem to be that you're allowed to install native code. AFAIK there are (almost) no Linux phones that let you install native code, and I'm pretty sure...

It's not just the gapless playback, the music player just isn't very good. Like most other S60 apps, I believe it was "designed" and built by engineers who just lack the competence for designing...

This case of this device looks exactly like the 6120. I'm not so sure if the house is a good pictorial representation of the appshell, but then again, I don't know what is.

Things sure move fast in the mobile phone business. A year ago the first phones with wifi hit the market, and now wifi is "almost a necessity". :)
