What's with the hate for S^3?


Sep 14, 2010, 8:59 PM
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 I think he just read somewhere that Symbian is outdated and complicated.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 updated and improved that system. I expect much the same with S^3. The market demands that phone's/OS's get released before they are fully ready but at least these phone's have functioning antennas and the software isn't programmed to lie about signal strength.
