obviously not written by a nokia user
Anyone capable of starting an article like this with the sentence "Nokia had (and still has) one proven and successful smartphone platform, and had spent years bringing another one to maturity." has clearly never used a Series60 touch screen phone.
so good it's hard to write anything about it.
It's difficult to write something about it because it works so well.
I largely skipped vista. It's on my wife's laptop and I occasionally have to help her out with things she doesn't know how to do.
Windows 7 has been running on my work laptop for about 6 weeks now, I'm part of the corporate beta test for my employer. What I like about it most is that it all just works, straight out of the box and it keeps working. No real driver issues, no problems with older programs. It boots reasonably quickly, it gets out of sleep mode with incredible speed and it reconnects to wlan so quickly that I've checked the Wifi access points to confirm that it did in fact complete a whole dhcp request.
Only dislike I have is that out of 3 desktop gadgets two have spontaneously disappeared.
no bulletproof hosting?
I don't get it. Every viagra pushing or rolex tauting spammer manages to find bulletproof hosting in the PRC and the pirate bay is offline after a single threat?
missed a major flaw
I think you guys missed something that the people at dpreview spotted and that's a very weird AF configuration. Quoting from their review:
Five AF points sounds promising (especially in a sector with several 3 AF-point cameras), but the active point is always automatically selected without any indication given as to which one has been used. The only alternative is to lock the camera to use its central AF-point, so you're left either with an AF system that won't tell you what it's doing or a single AF-point camera. While this is delightfully unthreatening to newcomers, it's a system that most people will quickly out-grow and one that is likely to make many experienced users simply walk away.
no one read the novel?
I'm surprised that I seem to be the first one to make the connection between this and the novel "flashforward" by Robert J. Sawyer which outlines what mayhem will be caused by this infernal device.
