    Nokia will happily take money off your hands if you have nothing else to do with it, I guess. They're going to continue to release, sell and support Symbian phones (Or try to, I'd say.) for the immediate future and even side-by-side with Windows Phones until such time as they can deliver a complete portfolio of Windows Phones and totally phase out Symbian.

    nothing, it will still go on as planned. just don't expect a lot (if at all) support for it.

    It'll most likely die. Windows picking WP7 was also a rumor.

    Unfortunately you are on the buyer beware plan.


    3rd party App development is basically gone.


    Support is probably going to be like N97 which basically means 2 updates at most.



    The phone still says "Coming Soon" on the Nokia Website. Hopefully the e7 launch price lowers since the Microsoft banner is now up on the launch page...

    It was already iffy with support, now you know their real plans. Elop killed Symbian. I use to tell people thinking about the N8 to wait for PR1.1, now I'll tell people to wait for PR4.0 and to see what happens to the Ovi Store. Honestly, I just wouldn't risk it, we won't get crap, despite the damage control Nokia is trying to spin.

    They're about to do another huge round of layoffs, you can't really think we're going to see support for our devices? This isn't building a third ecosystem, this is introducing a third ecosystem that will rape and ravage the existing two ecosystems.

    They just blew up our burning platform, despite the millions of moths that are still drawn to their flames

    Just don't do it, don't make our mistakes, don't buy any Nokia device until Elop is removed and Nokia decides to follow through with their visions and roadmaps.

    It's buyer beware, like buyers of WinMo 6.X.

    Go into it knowing that it's a device running an end-of-life OS, with minimal or no support, minimal if any updates, and no future applications, and if you're okay with that, go for it.

    ccrows, jonnyjl, Jimmy_K and others: You have no idea how disappointed I am. There is nothing wrong in building WP7 phones, but killing Symbian, MeeGo, and selling out to MS is a total subversive. Elop is a treator to Nokia. He sold out the comopany. It is also not a huge win for MS. Most people don't like MS anymore, regarless of the pluses and minuses or their software. MS just have a negative image. So, who wins? APPLE AND GOOGLE.

    If Elop was really careing, he could have WP7 version of E7, N8 in addition to developing MeeGo and Symbian strongly. Also, a partnership with RIM was a reasonable choice.

    Anyway, wise people left long long ago. We were the only few hanging with Nokia. I understand that this is my time to go. I am searching for a SIM free Blackberry 9780, and off to go as soon as I get it. It is time to say Bye! Bye!

    If Elop cared about the existing platforms he would have at least insisted Qt has to be an option on WP7. I'm not saying as the primary/only application framework but at least an option.

    He didn't, we got screwed, and we'll be screwed for awhile. The WP7 phone won't be here for at least months. If they think they can now pawn another device into the market that we now know beyond a reasonable doubt will be nothing more than a lab device, then they truly think we're idiots.

    Nokia already laid a bunch of employees off from the Ovi and Symbian group and they're going to go through another one. The numbers they're floating means the workers on these OSes, not management and non-essentials, are going to get cut, that's another ding on the current platforms.

    I'd be surprised if we even get Qt 4.7 baked into any Symbian^3 device anytime soon. They are not going to have the resources to make it happen. And the morale in Nokia must be at critical mass, I don't think any of them are buying what Elop is selling. They know their jobs are going elsewhere.

    Right. Qt is gone.

    You know a real sad thing? WP7 cannot COPY/PASTE yet. There will be an update in March which will allow Copy/Paste!!!! Which world MS live? I use a 2004/5 model of Nokia E61i (S60 3rd Ed) and use CTRL^C and CTRL^P all the time. Also CTRL^X to cut stuffs!

    Elop was planted by MS into Nokia. Nokia is dead.
