Why blame Symbian because of some poor looking apps? Blame the developers.

In fact why even visit and post in a Symbain related blog?

7600 had an usuable keypad. This may be ugly (to some, I am sure there will be people who likes it), but at least it has a practical keypad.

What the heck? This is old news. Older if you take into account that this form factor was evolved from their old Picturebook series, one of the first "netbook" like devices before Asus got there.

Well you don't necessarily need to be a 'power user' to own an expensive/higher end smartphone. The E72 is subsidised and can also be issued by companies (I know of people who has been given E71 and...

Viewranger caches OpenStreetMap, so I am using that as a backup to Ovi Maps. Rarely use search so no Google Maps on my phone.

I was wondering when would someone post a negative post. If you hate Nokia so much why even bother to post here. Evidently you do not even own a E72.

I do not understand why you would consider it illogical. How is it any different to typing the address in a multiple search field?



Uhm no.

What? It does work.

In fact I just tested it. I am currently in London and I just inserted a random address in Edinburgh to test, and Ovi Maps found it just fine.

Just type:

QFT.

Nokia can't win here. They will always be moaners.

Been using Ovi Maps 3.03 for some time now and I prefer the new search function.

I am still using the old outdated tfl java app. Works brilliantly on s60v3.2 despite the outdated map set (not that big a deal TBH).

None touchscreen is fine by me.

S60 UI is fine for a none-touchscreen. I do admit that S60v5 needs an overhaul and that is what Symbian Foundation are working at for its next release.

Still happy with my none-touch E55, and this coming from a guy who used to own plenty of Palms and Clies, and was an early adaptor of the first ever Xda model.

Not surprising that Nokia UK is giving us the shaft again. Still no v22 for my E55 either via NSU or FOTA.

I like Nokia. But they really ought sack whoever runs Nokia Care UK.
