My Thoughts on Nokia & WP 1yr after announcement From a Symbian diehard.

I was a major skeptic when the announcement was made that Feb day, I couldn’t imagine them abandoning Symbian the OS I have used for yrs. The OS that in my opinion was most Flexible had the most features. The OS that was still the world leader although declining.

Now fast forward 1 year later and I am using a Cyan Lumia 800 U.S.version, I am no longer a skeptic but a believer. I cannot judge WP yet in full until Apollo is out to see what real changes Nokia can add without the restrictions of the current WP.

I have learned to live with the true lack of multitasking, and certain other features Symbian offered me through the years. I can live without these features because the speed and U.S. centric apps WP offers makes up for it, the keyboard, browser, integration, apps, screen resolution & voice control all rival that of Symbian, I am now waiting for the Video and Camera to match which would just make my choice that much Better.

Nokia had to do something, America’s influence is that powerful (IPhone) and although I hate to admit it, it was the game changer. The average consumer doesn’t care about the amount of features but the ease of use of the product, that’s where WP comes in, much more user friendly and enjoyable to use than Symbian & even IOS to me.
I think the move was overall good for Nokia, I just want all my Symbian features on my windows phone now.

Let Me Know what your thoughts are, and if you had time with WP coming from Symbian.

  1. with my experience with wm, I have to wait until the wp a few months old to see if it will have the same basic problem with wm.

  2. i truely love nokia becoz of its amazing camera performance and outlook when i were young. Today i still like to use nokia, but i think its camera performance is really under the average line as a flagship product.. I would really hope when the wp8 comes, nokia camera can perform better than iphone!!! or at least no differences 🙂 like nokia map and the cyan colour! Also, the blue colour only for nokia’s live tiles make it better than htc or any other wp phones 😀

  3. Who would have thought I would be writing this, when it 1st was announced I was stunned. I also agree with you if Nokia with its hardware and media capabilities as well as apps like Nokia drive, creative studio, contacts transfer keep coming we should be in for 1 nice ride.

  4. Couldn’t agree with you more Lenny, the move to WP was vital, and it’s changed me from a great sceptic to a believer, the OS is really quick, has mass appeal and has been almost trouble free for me in 4 months, if Nokia continue with the fantastic hardware and design and both Nokia & MS can give a little more flexibility to the system I think they can give both old and new users a modern smartphone experience everyone can be happy with. Also if apps like Creative Studio are an example of Nokias influence, things are moving in the right direction 🙂
