X3 is feature phone

You wrote "S40 smartphones". S40 phones are feature phones, not smartphones.

"Please stop reviewing our phones based on what you see"

And just repeat our press releases in your own words.

Thank you.

What's with the hate for S^3?

After reading the tab for Symbian^3 in this report, I've got to wonder - what's with the hate for S^3? Did some not-so-friendly Nokia staffer take out his angst about losing OPK and Anssi on you?
Seriously... the points made against S^3 in the article are very weak:

1) Widgets aren't as customizable as Android:

I wouldn't say that... having widgets that fit on the screen at a uniform size and shape, I'd call that clean and organized. Sure, you can litter your homescreen(s) with every widget under the sun in Android (heck, I've done it with Maemo on my n900), but I actually like having some built-in constraints to make things easier. Point is, the info presented on the widgets is there, in the widget....

Great post. There are a lot of Symbian haters. I think he just read somewhere that Symbian is outdated and complicated. Could it be on some Cnet article? When Nokia rolled out S60 5th edition it had some issues but they quickly and frequently upda...

Nokia used to be...

Honestly, nokia used to be the best phone ever! Now they are so behind the times. I would have rather like to seen Anrdoid OS on a nokia phone. These phones have nice hardware but a crappy OS. Nokia, its time to step your game up!

looks nice, but not too different...

These phones seem pretty sharp, but I think there will be some disappointments...

I personally like and enjoy S60, and so I am glad to see that Symbian^3 doesn't seem all too different from S60, but I know there are alot of people who, unlike me, will be disappointed.

Also, the battery on the E7, like the N8, is not user-interchangeable. This is one of the worst features of the iPhone... who at Nokia decided this was the way to go?

Just a couple of thoughts to get the discussion started... anyone agree or disagree?
I think the C6 is pretty sharp. I don't like the bulbous designs so the C7 fails me on that point. The E7 also looks nice.

As for S60...I personally like it. I've had my 5800 for over a year now and have come to love S60. It may be plain and minima...

This is what irks me with most (US or NAM) reviews of Symbian devices: everybody gets hung up on the "fluff" of the OS - fancy transitions, zooming in/out/through, basically all the stuff that eats up processor cycles for what amounts to entertainment...
