It's so obvious the people at Symbian are secretly Suikoden fans, and this is their way of showing it.
As for the 61 err.... they're fans of no. 61 from Suikoden II?
It could be that 108:61 is around the same as 16:9, grasping at straws, but then again we all are. :P

This is simple guys.

108 firmware updates before the latest phone is usable.

@kevwright. Or the amount of multi tasked apps Symbian phones may be capable of running at the same time!



(get that one in quick before 6pm....;-)


Edit: after the Cupertino 'event' i guess we still don't have to be concerned with Multi-Tasking on an Apple handheld device....

108 is the amount of RAM that their next flagship phone will have! they thought ahhh why keep giving them 128MB of RAM? take away 20MB of that RAM for speed...

If they wanted to generate hype for an upcoming product, they couldn't have picked a worse moment. All eyes are on Apple; today, and for the next few days.

I don't care about apple, they just launched a big stretched iPhone with some improvements in hardware specs. I didn't see any innovation like everyone else on the Internet sad before the launch.

But symbian can release a very good news very soon.

I do remember a Nokia press release that a Symbian device with ^2 features will be released midway 2010 (in their own words "Re-engineer our Symbian user interface; deliver a major product milestone before mid-year 2010"). 108 days is almost 4 months. Could be a countdown to that - announcement of release of the 1st official ^2 device.
