What are you talking about? Belle is the best thing that has happened to the mobile phone world. Symbian continues to reinvent and redefine itself with new features with amazing battery performance and memory management. WP, Android and IOS are a joke compared to Belle. Are you American by any chance? Also could you 'reveal' why Belle is bad?

The fact that there were cheers when it was mentioned that the 808 runs Symbian Belle should tell Nokia something, and if smart, they should re-assess the demise of Symbian. Not everybody is enamored with iOS and Android, and into gimmics; some people just want to have a serious phone. Lot of Symbian users in the world. If Nokia were to further support Symbian, I would not hesitate to buy the 808, and it could certainly be a splashing success--but with Symbian at dead end, why bother? Although I love my N8, I am wondering if that was a mistake to buy--not that there is anything wrong with the phone, in fact I like it very much, and it is "cool" to have a N8 when everybody else has iPhone and Android--what do they know, I can do most things they can do with their phones--sort of a snob factor. The mistake is committing to a dead OS--if Nokia kept Symbian alive, no question lots of loyal Nokia customers would still buy Nokia. I am still also using my 10 year old Nokia 6310i--it is so reliable and dependable--never a problem--that was why I chose Nokia when I upgraded. A repeat customer is better and easier to get than a new customer.

"The Symbian Belle operating system isn't bad, but it doesn't have a lot of the flexibility of modern OSes such as Android or Windows Phone."

1) Nokia Belle, NOT Symbian Belle
2) Nokia Belle is a most flexible smartphone OS ever been made.
3) Eric Zeman, i am so sorry but you don't know what are you talking about...

Can you please give some specific examples on what some of the "flexibility" you mention that Android offers but Symbian Belle doesn't?
