You constantly make things up, your above post is proof of this. I have told you before, and I will tell you again, I don't use a Nokia phone, and I haven't been using one for quite some time now. I have a work WM6.5 phone, and I hate it, which doesn't give me confidence in WM7, but I have never used 7, so can't comment about it.
Now the reason I defended Symbian is pure and simple, the amount of people on this site making false statements about it is sickening, and all the while we have moderators like you that ignore the false statements and would rather moan at people trying to correct those statements.
Get off your high horse, and stop being so one eyed.
Why don't you start acting like a good member of this community? It seems that those who don't like what I say, and the way I say it, are mostly trolling for the purpose of angering the other users here, You rarely can back up anything you say, and you're a one note band about Nokia. I'm not about to suck up to that, as pretty much everything on that subject you've stated since you've been here has been proven wrong by events. Get used to being mocked. There's nothing wrong with that, like it or not.
We've been saying for years that Symbian is an old, primitive OS that has been forced to accept modern features, and as a result, doesn't work well. We've also said that Nokia should do something about that or they would suffer. We've also said that Apple and Android would catch up and surpass them in numbers of phones sold.
All of this is true, and has come to pass, or is almost there. Apple now sells more smartphones phones in Europe than Nokia. Nokia pulled out of Japan. and one other Asian country, which name I forget. Thev've never been big here, but are doing worse than ever.
Elop pulled a boner, and its killing Nokia.
So what about that is wrong? And which of any of your defenses turned out to be right? Every time I told you their sales were lagging, and that their position in marketshare for smartphones was dropping, all you would respond with is that they're number one. Well, they're not number one any longer, and they wont be number two for too long either. They'll be lucky to be number three.
And if WP7 doesn't take off, and despite IDC and Gartner's predictions, there's no evidence that it will, they may be in trouble that's too late for them to worm out of. Can you prove that to be wrong?
