    remove symbian os and use WinMo but dont remove utilities like switch data and transfer data from other nokia from the phone...directly. and then external memory can use for save, backup contact and messages...hope with WinMo be better but now, i think there's no WinMo features can optimize it.

      UIQ was nothing more than a cloud-type interface. Why shouldn't it have picked up into something even greater is a question I don't think anyone can answer, but I doubt it's SE's fault. I also doubt Samsung would of done them any good if what you're suggesting happened.

      Sony Ericsson is a nice company and their phones are very unique.So grudge-down and quit antagonizing SE with no basis other than being a troll.

                      The Bing conspiracy, 14 Aug 2009Symbian^2 is underway. It's pointless to complain. Why d... moreThat reiteration would probably go over people's heads. One more time guys, Nokia isn't gitting rid of Symbian. rofl. As much as I love Android, I ONCE AGAIN can't stand Android fanboys.

                      The sales profits for Microsoft have gone as expected this year, with a Q1 intake of $15 billion, a 9% increase from last year. Q2 however saw the loss of 6% (estimated at about a $4.5 billion loss...which really isn't much of a loss considering that their yearly revenue is estimated at 52 billion). I have yet to see Q3, and it might have another projected loss but, like I said above.

                      This decision is hardly maleficent to both parties and their users (besides the price, maybe). They'll be getting a very good office suite available on their business phones and no longer will they have to rely on that OpenSource Office software seeping out of i hate Microsoft forums.

                      Oh and Andy, you're right, S40 stands for Series 40, not Symbian 40 -.- Sorry for mistaking that, I've been away from Nokia a long time.

                                    Nokia is always great without the alliance of microsoft for office solutions. Nokia already did the job beautifully.

                                      I think now Nokia will enter the global mobile market stronger than before
                                      Now Nokia customer will find more solutions with windos mobile
                                      and nokia customers required this type of products from long time but Nokia was depending on Symbian systems
                                      So congratulations for this step NOKIA

                                        Oh there supposed to be jealous of this? That'd be hypocritical of them considering the fact that the new Office suite they'll be using is from Microsoft. Development from one company for the benefit of others doesn't make me jealous so, good for Apple, and good for Microsoft.

                                        Speaking of which, I hope the MSOffice for Symbian will also apply for S60 based Samsung devices, and maybe for the Pre. But I guess Palm is keen on their own Office Suite. Oh well, if not now, then later on.
