The Experia X1.

Indeed, the gap to the Dark Side has been breached. Indeed, this is the beginning of the end of the first, last and best rebel force, Psion-EPOC-Symbian.

Now, certainly, all is...

This came at the right time for me as my WM5 phone's mini USB socket met with the deleterious combination of a stylus and my occasionally mischievous 7-year-old.

I downloaded the Oracle Sync ML...

chairstacker,

Could be worse: After my P910a finally gave up the ghost I had to switch to an E62, which - great format aside - was sooo slow and S60 Series inflexible (original UIQ sure spoiled...

From the "Dark Side"

Having purchased a WM5 phone a couple of months ago (HTC Hermes) after decades (Multiple Psions, P910a and E62) with Symbian I must say that WM5 is not too bad.

The Vox is WM6, which is a bit more...

Marc,

Point taken. OTOH, it has always been nice to see - on the chart - how poor M$-powered units were vis-a-vis Symbian-powered phones.

I think the gap has closed. I think NOK are...

I love AAS.

I read it daily.

I have read and deeply respected Steve's information on all things palm-sized for years.

I think, though, that Nokia are funding AAS to some great extent!

Oops! I goofed! Not atypical of me at all!

eyephone,

Oh! Yeah! krisse,

Again, Symbian isn't credited because Symbian isn't a brand. It owns the market because Nokia is the brand and makes Symbian phones.

Walkman - OTOH - is a BRAND.

Steve, some very interesting insights. I wonder if this new perspective would have you reposition the W950 slightly in the Venn Diagram from last week. Perhaps or perhaps not.

Well, from those of us over here in the US who do use and enjoy Symbian-powered products, it is a shame that we can't get the newest ones.

BUT, AS much as I want a P990 or E90 over here, the...

Steve,

It is easy for you to make this that we should all move on now:

The E90 is on the horizon for you and the Europeans and may well satisfy the desire to have 1 fast, efficient machine that...

I'll further add that yes, even my P910a takes over a minute to start-up. It is particularly slower with the indispensable Magic Launcher. But, it is so stable, I rarely have to shut it down and,...

Marc,

No. I was referring to UIQ 2.1, which is all SE have made available supporting GSM850. My P910a is so much faster and more customizable than the E62 I had that I think S60 is an...

You know, at the end of the day S60 is for phones. UIQ is what the Psion would have been had it a radio set. Faster than S60 too!

Perhaps the upcoming E90 announcement will have me eat those...
