"Symbian, the OS is alive and well and now back in Nokia's control away from committees and boards and such-like. Could well be the best thing that's happened to Symbian in a while."
Want to bet on it?
I'm the AC @ 11:32. Not only do I have a string of Nokia phones as long as my arm (mostly S60 ones) I'm also clued up enough to recognise your name from All About Symbian from when I used to care about these things. But these days I'm not a geek (honest), I just want a phone that works with a few useful extras, not a phone that's geeky or trendy (or unreliable or overpriced).
I am your target market. But I am due for a new phone soon (so long as it is *better* than my current one).
Tell readers why they should see a future with Symbian rather than with Android.
Tell readers why they should see a future with Symbian rather than Android when people such as TomTom long ago abandoned Symbian in favour of Windows Mobile. At least now TT have Android too (neither iPhone nor Windows Mobile are options for me, but TT have those options for others). (That'll be the TomTom that grew out of Psion, just like Symbian did, so if anyone knows who to back, it'll be them, right?)
If you don't want to state your case here, how about at Your Other Place if you prefer.
Better be quick though because that ZTE Blade looks real interesting for the money. And there'll be more, even from Nokia, if Meego means anything (But it won't, because it's Intel, and everything Intel touch turns to shot if it isn't x86).
