Cool, there should be some serious competition between both of the people with a Symbian phone .....
Hey, that's not fair... there are at least 3 of us!!! LOL
Hey I know everyone uses Crapple or Android. I use a Nokia E7 (Symbian) because I like the slide out keyboard, and don't mind Symbian for handhelds. I realise that Symbian was slow and buggy; the n97 sucked! But with the latest version of Symbian (Anna) Nokia actually fixed most of the bugs and made it perform more smoothly. And Nokia hardware is second to none. SHame they've dumped SYmbian just as they finally got it working - sigh.
I also have an Android tablet (ACER Iconia) and it's ok when it's not crashing but I don't get Android. Yes it's less locked down than Apple but it's still locked down. It's basically LINUX with a buggy proprietary JAVA wrapper.
I mean why not just use LINUX?! Maemo, (a type of LINUX) which Nokia used on its n900 and new N9, is fast, stable and simply rocks. And you can run all the Debian LINUX aps you want on it.
So, for example, you can have real Open Office/Libre Office (a full office suit) running on your phone or tablet instead of a crippled litte Quick Office thing that only has 10% of the features and doesn't import heavily formatted documents correctly. If you're an IT type you can have all the network tools for pinging, trace routing or whatever you want to do.
It just annoys me that companies are deliberately holding their users back so that we get lockd into a proprietary model.
I owned iphone 3gs and few android phones,im on Galaxy s2 Epic touch right now.
I used symbian but not on smart phone and never used Megoo/maemo.
Android is not yet optimized for tablets,thats why you had bad experience with it.
I can just vouch for my current GS2 phone-i never had even one force close on it.And I flash alot of roms and customize my roms.Hardware on Samsung is unmatched by anything,android has better apps than iphone(yes iphone apps do look better),and stability is supperb.I can delete half of system apps and android will still boot!Oh and I didnt mention that gs2 has ZERO lag and is supper fast.
We have Polar Office and other office programs that symbian cant match.
You cant put Symbian against android.Im sure that Naemo,Meego and WebOS if they ever matured could compete against android and ios or even be better-but they probably never will.
Nokia should have went with android or webos and they would have made tons of money.
Choosing wp7 wasnt a mistake but bad bussiness decision.Android thats where the money is.
And wp7 ui looks like settings option menu on my android.And it takes a too many touches to get to where you are going.
For now android is best os for non business users.I will say that probably symbian and other os's are more secure but that is it.
