used 808 for 4 months, I'd say that it is the perfect time to say goodbye to Symbian, a legendary OS of all time

actually i'm using x-plore file manager in symbian since nokia n70, much more refined file manager, android also has x-plore file manager, its from lonelycat games.

agreed, some more nokia has great stereo loudspeaker like n73, n95, 5800, x6 but nowadays smartphone has crap loudspeaker shakehead.gif

the camera is unbeatable! the themes are very damn attractive (sadly no easy fonts changer and custom transitions which can be done with 3rd part only)

still got working tough nokia 5800Xm and Samsung Omnia HD symbian. i feel sad how internal struggle in nokia let symbian die. in fact, symbian was not far away from android in similarities. just symbian is taken slow moving to bulit the ecosystem for it's sustainability so lead to it's death. developers whos developing symbian previously is leaving them to androids to secure their job. nobody will stay with the sinking boat.

symbian will always a 'guru' to all IOS...no symbian, no androids. Shame NOKIA,
no wonder u also sink with it.

RIP symbian.

I personally never had a Symbian phone, but my family did have them.

Based on my experience from using their Symbian phones, I can say that I don't really like the OS but I don't hate it either.

You like Android? if you used to it, symbian is a granddaddy of Android...

Therefore you can see the trend where there are mass-migration of symbian user to android because of similarity.

i see, for those people that use symbian or android, they like to mess around what can OS do and what cant the OS do.... geeks do those.

IOS n WP8 is more geared towards those people who dont care much on the phone hmm.gif

Did you lodge a police report for that? Very serious. The world is not safe anymore.

SeleQ is developed by Alchemy Technology Sdn Bhd through the Ximplify.com portal back in the early 2000s.
I was one of the developer there, Mr.Chong was the developer of SeleQ who sit beside me. We even managed to translate to several other languages.

Ya, already report. Police already take some fingerprint sample, but cant do anything for the lost. The robber doing their job when my parent left home for only 2hour.

Glad to know that you is the one of the developer. SeleQ is a Must apps for all symbian phone at that time. Without that dont know how to manage files.

Nope. Has been closed. I also missed that moment where they updated news, phone and app reviews on their blog. Very informative.

My last symbian phone was Nokia PV 808 before Elop puts an end to Symbian.

to be honest... Symbian is a great os... due to Nokia internal combustion ... it fails to triumph continuously...
if not.. there won't be android existed... cause Symbian is Android granddaddy! ... really miss Symbian os low battery consumption... and great camera software.... top of the peaks!
