Symbian vs Android: A Brief Comparison

Written on September 20, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

In this article, GADG has compared two of today's most popular OSes -- Symbian and Android.

When it comes to mobile phone OS, there are only two best options to take: The Symbian and the Android. Of course, both have their own specialties and drawbacks. The Symbian is said to be a really old OS with its first version (Symbian v9) being released way back in 2005. It also got numerous updates — with Symbian Belle as being the latest installment. Android, on the other hand, was launched just few months before the Symbian. It was acquired by Google in 2005 and has kicked off different Android OSes from 2008.

Since their release, these two OSes — along with their makers (Nokia and Google), have been trying to beat each other in terms of performance and service. Perhaps only the gamers have the ability to determine the real winner, as both aims to provide a superb gaming experience.

By taking the leap, you can see a brief yet detailed comparison between the Symbian and Android OS.

Nokia is offering big money for a new remix of their classic tune, which will be used for the new batch of their phones.

Nokia took several steps and moves to revitalize its slumping core cell phone business, including adopting Microsoft’s Windows Phone as its primary OS. The company also wants to redevelop the way their products sound.

Nokia announced a contest of remixing their classic tunes embedded in all of their phones for the past 18 years to find a fresh version of it. Even though the company is searching for a refresh of the tune, it is – in the spirit of “Connecting People” – looking for a tune that is fresh, expressive, original and creative yet distinctively a Nokia Tune at the same time.

Nokia, Cutting Down the Number of Included Countries in its N9 Launch

Written on August 13, 2011 by Lulu

Nokia seems to shrink their N9 launch plans, as they include fewer countries which will get the said device than expected.

Despite the important marketing efforts Nokia has put behind its MeeGo flagship handset, the Nokia N9, the firm seems to be decreasing its launch plans to include fewer countries than expected. After announcing that there is no plan in bringing the N9 to the US or the UK, the said company also told MobiFlip that the device will not be heading to Germany, Austria or Switzerland either.

The said announcement casted doubt on Nokia’s launch plans for the N9, since the device is said to be released in a wider range of markets. It is unclear now how many and which countries will get the N9 through official channels — even though the Swedish page had provided a launch countdown.

For customers living in North America and who are willing to pay a premium for an unlocked N9, the said handset is expected to support AT&T and T-Mobile in the US along with several Canadian carriers.
