Somewhat of a fair review

Honestly, I'm more impressed with this review than your usual reviews of Symbian products (which tend to be harsher.)
I don't see how you say the homescreen is chaotic with different size widgets when that is what defines Android. Symbian had 6 same-size widgets at first and were castrated first, and then switch to different sizes for different apps and somehow it's bad?
That said, I urge you to find a decent Android phone for $70 either. Most are close to the same specs as offered by this without the power efficiency of Symbian. This phone may freeze (and that is terrible and should be mentioned) but lower end Android phones have their own problems as well.

Overall though, not a bad review.

To be totally honest, I am sort of found of the chaotic, different sized widgets..there is something about the asymmetry that catches my eye.
I dislike how iOS is just a bunch of tiles and really hate how webOS and BlackBerry waste so much screen space with a theme photo and only have a little launch bar at the bottom.

Symbian is not as bad as so many ppl make it out to be. I played with an N8 for a week and was *this close* to keeping it and parking my Nexus One. I had not used any Nokia since 2004 and within a day it felt like 2nd nature.

The only factor that caused me to return the N8 was the push mail- it was very slow. sometimes within a minute, but sometimes delayed 40+

You can take an android phone, hold your finger on a homescreen, pick android widgets and pick between two or three sizes ... at least on the captivate and htc inspire for at&t. You can place icons in folders and completely organize the android to look solid!
