It's weird to think that a few years from now HP (the world's largest PC manufacturer) and Nokia (the world's largest mobile manufacturer) likely won't exist as we know them today. Well played, Apple.

Sorry, when did Nokia say that it will drop support for MeeGo? Also, Intel has reiterated its support for the OS, so doesn't the lend credence to the idea that there *some* kind of ecosystem will evolve?

Pilgrim7 said: (Also at this price I would expect a faster processor) I'm always curious when people say this. Perspectives like this treat the number at which a processor speed is rated as the end all, be all without taking into account anything else. That would be akin to assuming that a vehicle with a 500-hp engine is automatically faster than one with a 350-hp engine without factoring in anything else. Doesn't it matter what type of vehicle the engine is powering? ...

I actually already have an N8. And I do like the E7. But because I have an N8, I'd basically be paying for a keyboard, a larger screen and CBD. Those are all things I'd like to have but I'd only pay so much for them.

I'm an unabashed fan of Nokia and Symbian. But there is no way I'd pay $650 for this phone, especially since the N8 is going for $400.

Alltel was not a national carrier, and buying it did not give Verizon 99% ownership of CDMA in the US.

Oh, pardon me. It would only give AT&T control of 99% of the GSM networks in the US. And yes, that is a fact. And it would only benefit large shareholders because that is where your money would go. This deal would mean that AT&T would have virtually no competition for GSM handsets (meaning there is no incentive to give good deals on them) or people who need phones that work internationally. Long term effect is that AT&T would not ...

If they really cared about improving call quality, they could easily work out roaming deals with one another. As for the Verizon/Alltel comparison: 1) Alltel was not a nationwide ...

Seriously. Any excuse T-Mobile may have tried to use would have seemed pretty slim once Sprint joined AT&T and Verizon. And it goes right out of the window with MetroPCS joining the fray.

CellStudent said: No, he's saying the carrier, hardware maker and software maker were both unable to fix a major problem with the device and unwilling to give a straight answer as to why the problem existed. Which is a fair point except: 1) Samsung was not the hardware manufacturer of the Nexus One, HTC was; and 2) the Nexus One was not carried through T-Mobile. Those are two pretty significant differences.

If it fails to accomplish its sales goals ( which is what I think will happen), then Nokia will have to take a long hard look at the mirror and try to figure out why the number one phone manufacturer is producing high-end phones that no one wants. And you're basing your prediction on what, exactly? Most mid to high end Symbian ...

1) Can't really blame Sony Ericsson. Nokia does take a long time to roll out Symbian updates. You have to think that SE is tired of putting an effort into an OS where the ROI takes so long to show. 2) Does this really hurt Symbian all that much? Sure, SE has a name presence but how much of a factor does it actually have in the market? Its market share is probably less than 5%. And on top of ...

Right now I'd have to agree with this statement. I've been loyal to T-Mo for five years. However, I've also only used Nokia phones over the period of time. I picked up an E73 today, and this is the first time I've ever been able to use AWS bands. I'm really impressed so far.

I can't. At least not in the role of a traditional carrier. I don't think that Google has any interest whatsoever in having to deal with things like monthly bills, credits for customer complaints, etc. The only way I could see Google getting involved is as a parent company where an intermediary handles all the day-to-day aspects of running a carrier. And Google would make it absolutely clear that it was strictly bankrolling the operation; all complaints ...

in the Article: Google Says Partial Nexus One 3G Fix On the Way forum

Going with AWS is actually a pretty smart idea (for both the NexusOne and the Nokia N900), although there is a high risk/reward factor. The phone isn't intended to be a mass market product (at least not yet) as much as it is meant to show the ultimate capabilities of Android. Because there are fewer customers on T-Mobile that actually use 3G, speed on the network is much less clogged...when you can access it.

in the Article: Nokia Now Shipping the N900 forum

I am intrigued by the N900 but I was waiting to see how much T-Mobile would sell it for on contract. I assumed that Nokia and T-Mobile already had something in place since T-Mo is the only carrier in the world that uses AWS 1700. However, Nokia is now shipping the N900 world wide (even in the US!) and there hasn't even been a rumor about it being launched on T-Mo. That's pretty surprising and points to no ...

I'm intrigued by the Booklet but I have no interest in getting AT&T's data subscription since my job pays for a Sprint aircard. So that leaves me to wonder if $600 is worth it for what is essentially a beefed up netbook.

Jayshmay said: Really the only thing Nokia messed up on is the lack of 850/1900 3G. Hey, Nokia has released plenty of 3G devices with 850/1900. This is the first 3G smartphone that it has made that my fellow T-Mobile customers and I can actually use. However, it is interesting that high profile smartphones based on Linux seem to be favoring T-Mobile for the time being.

Nokia is simply playing it safe with this first entry. It is using this to see how viable the market is, so it went with the OS that is most recognizable to the largest population. If it proves successful enough, I'm sure we'll see Maemo netbooks from Nokia in the future (although with Nokia, who knows how long that will be).

Just to play devil's advocate to your devil's advocate... Why does everyone feel the need to compare every phone to the iPhone? I like the iPhone. A lot. I don't own one because I do not want to pay a higher monthly fee when I can get most of the same things for far cheaper using other phones. I also love how so many Apple fanboys (bluecoyote in this thread) keep using the rhetoric of how a $700 ...
