Absolutely. Hastily and sloppily implemented feature does more damage to devices image than a feature that is not implemented at all. Speaking of "full" multitasking on S60v5. It's unreliable,...

Yes, the list is weighted. But your marks still seem to be off - you gave desire and mini 8 points in calendar/agenda section. Shadamehr's example clearly shows that the advantage Desire has is a lot...

What worries me (and annoys) is that this kind of comparisons may make unwary readers believe that real gap between Symbian and Android is smaller than it in fact is. So instead of properly...

I find shadamehr's posts to be of great value.
Shadamehr gives Symbian owners or potential buyers a different perspective. And he goes deep into the details. He shows how different smartphones and...

Are you serious about all of those? Please compare browsing experience or apps on Symbian and much hated iPhone or (less hated) Android. You seem to compare raw feature list as many people fiercely...

Do you think Apple needs any defense? I don't. It's doing great as a company and actually leading the charge now.

I'm not denying the fact Nokia sells a lot of phones. But then again it's not earning that much as they are low end devices. People buy them because they are cheap. So they make Nokias statistics...

You know what?
For me Nokia was always synonymous to "reliable", "rock solid", "no-nonsense".
I've never actually considered Nokia to be cool. I still think those three would suffice. If they go...

I think this article is dangerous as it suggests setting Symbian's / Nokia's goals way to low.
I hope people at Nokia who are reading what you've wrote will not see it as a sign they've taken a good...

Making "touchscreens suck" statement is an oversimplification. But I assume you wanted to wind us up;)
Most of the problems with touch interfaces, especially S60v5, originate from the fact that...
