How the once mighty have fallen. Symbian ^3, too little, too late.
I've been a Nokia Symbian phone user for a few years, 6600, N95 and E71. The S60 devices where always great phones, and extremely popular. However I wasn't impressed much at all by Symbian ^3 aka touch-screen Symbian, when I tried the N8 in a store.
IMO the best thing Nokia can do now is quickly adopt Android and dump Symbian ^3. although that maybe too late.
Then again Nokia might well start doing Windows Phone 7 handsets....
