I actually based my opinion on the hundreds of posts on the official Apple iPhone 4 forum from dissatisfied owners who COULDN'T make phone calls when holding their phone in their hand. When early...

That's a sweeping generalisation if ever I heard one. I'm sure there are many visitors here who are far more interested in the N8 than the N9, for a variety of reasons: price, OS, size, weight,...

Personally, I think that says a lot about the type of people who are prepared to stand in line to be the first to own it. Have you ever seen anything as pathetic as people doing high fives just...

Has anyone had any problems updating Ovi Maps on an E90 recently?

Looking at the apps on my E90, I don't think any of them check for updates automatically. So, if it's a toss-up between having centralised control a la Apple with semi-automated update checking or...

How can you say that "Nokia are living in their own reality distortion field"? Have Nokia ever bad-mouthed the opposition in the way Apple did? No. Do they rant about how much better Symbian is than...

I think that Nokia selling Android devices would be an extremely bad idea, whatever the short-term benefits. People are already slightly confused by Nokia's strategy and where Symbian fits into it;...

What, you mean Apple's success in bringing to market the ONLY phone which doesn't work if you are stupid enough to actually hold it while trying to use it. Hmm, interesting definition of success...

It may have dropped to 2 bars in Apple's test, but it still manages to hang on to a 3.5G signal, something which the iPhone 4 certainly can't manage.

And there is a world of difference between...

Let's be honest, the iPhone UI is fairly archaic, simply presenting many screens of icons. Funnily enough, the iOS4 UI adopts a system whereby icons can be arranged in folders, much like S60...
