The Symbian Phone of the Decade

I asked an eclectic selection of 20 luminaries, bloggers and power users from the Symbian ecosystem: "Which is the Symbian-powered smartphone of the Decade? Which one was most significant, the most memorable, the most game-changing and the most loved?" Here are their answers, for your interest and amusement - and yes, a clear winner emerged...

Read on in the full article.

Indeed...

What Nokia REALLY need this year is to release a device that, like the N95, is just so far out there in terms of how much it can do that the iPhones slick UI becomes irellevant. Just like 2 years ago when a real argument could be made that the N95 was better than the iPhone, just because it had soooo many features.

Maybe. Unlikely to happen this year, though.

There's no such thing as the real push email. Even blackberry works the same way. Its just that they are good at marketing.

You can do it using Mail for Exchange. Its a free app by Nokia. It has an "always on" option where your phones is constantly connected. But the constant connection can drain your battery, especially on 3G.

N82 came after the N95 so I think the N95 deserves the credit abit more for integrating the current "standard" specs into mobiles. I thought the decade ends in 2010 as it starts from xxx1?? :p

Umm....yes it does. One example that explains it: http://www.techatplay.com/?p=32 With either BIS or BES you are permanently connected to the service, with your handset simply waiting for data.

BES is pure "push" the moment the email comes into your Exchange server, and quite often before it even hits the actual mailbox, BES sends it to your handset. I'm often hearing my BB alert me then a few seconds later seeing it pop up in Outlook.

BIS on the other hand, has to poll your various mail providers for email, I think it's around 15min, but still, once it has your mail, they are all instantly "pushed" to your handset.

No exactly; N82 have 128 RAM and N95 only 64. The main thing for me, itīs that N82 just "works", and all work well. GPS (10-15s to lock signal), Photos, Wi-Fi... even battery itīs good. It just work, and work well

N95

Nokia N95. Unquestionably the Symbian phone of the Decade; a true pocket computer. I never had one though.

I use the N82, but yes my vote goes to the N95, coz it came out first, and it was groundbreaking.
The N82 is better, but the N95 started the ball rolling.
