I'm afraid I have been truly converted to Android from Symbian, after almost 5 years of S60 ownership. Any Android with the 2.2/Froyo OS upgrade absolutely rocks...

Unfortunately, I have to agree with most of nottmbantam's comments. After using Android 2.2 on the HTC Desire, I find Symbian based handsets are so slooooow and use a very dated UI.

I had a free 2 week trial of an N900 from Nokia, and to be honest the software support (or lack of) ruined the experience for me. (No MMS support, No voice-guided sat-nav in the very old version of...

My story is similar to yours, but I am staying with the HTC Desire.

I wonder tho (hope?) for current N900 owners that Nokia ports the Meego OS to their handset when the N9 comes out.
Do you know if Maemo and Meego apps will be cross-compatible or do they need...

N900 Test Pilot / Trial

Hi all,

Apologies if N900 is not entirely on-topic here, but the N900 is as close to the N97 as any other current Nokia device...

Anyhow, I have a 2 week 'test pilot' trial of an N900, courtesy...

Well one of us is obviously mistaken. ;)

In any event Nokia have never ported a new S60 OS onto an existing or older handset model, and I seriously doubt they will do so now.

Unfortunatley in the case of S60 Nokia handsets, yes the ROM really is permanently read-only.
Nokia would have to try to add a workaround in the firmware/flash memory if an S60 bug was found - and...

As has already been stated, the S60 OS is held in ROM - Read Only Memory - so you are (mostly) incorrect.
