    Is anyone able to confirm or deny if S^3 is going to be upgradable to S^4?

      I dont think so Symbian 4 will bring a new interface so I highly doubt it

        aye – that’s a real deal-breaker for me. At least now the UK seems to have fully killed 12 month contracts. 6 months apparently until S^4, so i’d have 2/3rds of my contract period left by the time my OS is out of date. Shame – If it was upgradeable, i’d be all over pre-ordering right now!

          it depends. I think technical it can be upgraded, but since it’s a new interface, it will probably have a lot of eye candy which require a more powerful CPU and a larger memory.

        > I dont think so Symbian 4 will bring a new interface so I highly doubt it

        I’m sorry, but that’s a ridiculous statement. You haven’t got a clue whether it’s upgradeable or not. Can you provide ANYTHING solid to support that?

        I’ve been a mobile software developer for years and see no reason WHATSOEVER for N8 not to be ungradeable to S^4 if Nokia want it. Why on earth wouldn’t it be able to? The new interface has no bearing at all on whether it’s upgradeable – you just reload the firmware. All the hardware is in place.

        It will be PURELY a business decision whether S^3 is upgradeable – i.e. will it hit sales of new devices – which it inevitably will, but is Nokia willing to forgo that? I think Nokia will make it upgradeable actually, tho I will be disappointed, but understand, if they do not.

          Roger, it’s obvious you’re a big fan and defender, on these and other sites, but there is such a thing as too much.

          The 99% of S^3 owners who do not read these blogs would be very surprised if suddenly a lot of their apps would stop working, and the UI would change (remember S^3 is backwards compatible with S60 apps, S^4 is not). We’re not talking if it’s technically possible – obviously everything is possible technically.

          S^3 and S^4 will become similar in many ways, and because of Qt the apps will work either way.

          I wouldn’t mind if Nokia would allow reflashes to S^4, but it’s very unlikely, and you should realize that too.

            Maybe S3 devices get S4 in the same way N900 gets MeeGo, i.e. Nokia prodvides it unofficially with help from the community. I _highly_ doubt there’s an update coming to everyone via Nokia updater/OTA because of the reasons you mention.

          • Roger Johnson
            October 11, 2010 at 12:54 pm

            You make a good case, but I think you might be surprised. And I said it’s a business not a technical decision, so you’re just agreeing with me 🙂

            Thanks for info guys – makes me ponder some more.

            I didn’t realise that S^4 would not be backwards compatible in the same way S^3 is – unless they are offering Dev’s an easy way of recompiling – I can’t, as you said, see Nokia providing S^3 users with an upgrade path.

            It’s a real shame if that’s the case though – Although I can’t see them doing that given the emphasis they are putting on Dev’s this time around.

            im an advocate for nokia porting s^4 to S^3 owners considering the close dates

            but its never been Nokias practice to do so and when you consider how competitor devices suffer after upgrading Nokia may hesitate (they dont need another debacle)

            I’m with MJA and feel if it comes it would be the community that provides it.

            Interesting food for thought.

            If what you say is true, then when running Symbian using these new libraries (i don’t particulary understand this but..) and you are using more resources, I can’t imagine they will want to send this update to their N8/C7/E7 S^3 userbase – given that by the sounds of it user’s would certainly start to complain about possible memory issues, slower UI (possibly) and less battery life.

            Well that settles it for me – I shall hang on to my N95 for another 6 months until these MeeGo/S^4 devices surface.

            Although I fancy Android, im not a fan of the on-board memory problems and the rumours that a lot of <2.2 devices won't be upgradable to 3.0 – which is the big daddy of Android updates by the sounds of it.

          One thing I’ve been wondering is whether they would upgrade just the UI. It could be an optional update not a firmware upgrade. This would keep all the advantages of S^3 put together with S^4, however, the fact that S^3 devices support S^1 apps but S^4 doesn’t may mean Nokia won’t allow a UI upgrade because they feel it would harm their other sales.

            well current symbians are based on avkon library which was design for non touch interfaces. Symbian 3 is more like faze 1/2 which has a new core, but same interface engine so old apps( s60) will run so they can start with a number of apps. They also make cleared that new apps should be designed with qt, so they can be somehow compatible, easy to port with future symbian releases (S4) which has a new interface based on orbit library which is design from the ground to be touch friendly. From what I saw in the sources it is something like this “that allow you to create fluid uis from scratch without restricting the designers creativity”

            Both libraries orbit (symbian) and meego touch(meego) will be based on qt, however from a few tests I can tell you that are eating a lot more resources than avkon.
            that being said symbian will not be so light starting with S4.

            However we shall wait and see.

            PS: I don’t work for nokia :))

      This is such a non-issue it’s not even funny.

      Either buy a S^3 device because it fits what you need, or wait for S^4.

      You cannot base a decision on what “might or might not” happen. That is called having buyer’s remorse, if that “might” ends up being a “might not”. You get upset with the company you purchased it from, without understanding that you should be upset at yourself for not being happy with the product you bought, 100%. 🙂

    Holy mackerel this thing is beautiful !!!!!!!!!!! From the date the first sketches were done this thing was meant to be a stunner. This possibly is the best looking phone of this year. I have major decisions to do know the C7 or the N8…..

      Many people who have seen this phone say this phone is really beautiful. For many people it is indeed a hard decision between a super camera phone N8 and a beautiful phone C7 🙂

    • Cocco Bill

      It’s interesting how different people’s preferences are. I find the C7 quite boring looking and prefer N8. I like the fact that it looks so different and is easily recognizable. And it’s available in different colours.

      Most touch phones look too much alike. There should be more phones designed boldly like N8.

      • John Wiegand-forson
        October 11, 2010 at 8:11 pm

        Good point there I like the N8 because it is sooo unique in its design people will be starring at you with and n8 in your hand 😀

    Does C7 have same GPU as N8? N how much the screen fares in direct sunlight compared to N8? If these two things are same, i’m gonna buy C7 instead of N8 which still isn’t available in india.

    C7 is same except these things. Both have memory card slot also for extra memory.

    C7 8mpix (full focus 1m to infinity), No HDMI, 8GB

    vs

    N8 12mpix (AF),HDMI,16GB

    • Jim
      October 11, 2010 at 11:55 am

      yes. and the price difference is not that big. 335EUR vs 375EUR without any taxes.

      • Jim
        October 11, 2010 at 12:02 pm

        which also tells me that the price to all S3 devices will drop in the beginning of 2011, once new devices will appear.

    While the C7 camera is doubtless good, and easily better than iPhone 4 (not difficult) I don’t think you appreciate just how good the N8 camera is. If you’re after a good camera get the C7. If you’re after the best camera on the market by a long way, get the N8, and you get HDMI (etc) too.

    doesnt the c7 have a CBD or is that the C6

    • October 11, 2010 at 1:25 pm

      c6-01 has CBD. C7 has polarizing layer to improve outdoor visibility.

    What about availability in the US?
    Nokia hasn’t even announced whether the C7, E7 and C6-01 will be available in North American.
    Come on Nokia! I thought one of their biggest goal is to gain market share in the US. This is really not the way to go about it.
    Also FYI, Nokia N8 has been available at the Nokia flagship store in Chicago since Friday last week! I walked in, and was surprised to see it there.

    Every speaking person in this video was finnish, although the only Finnish name to appear in the video was “Matti”. And I don’t think that he said anything?

    Weird @_@

    good quality of video .c7 should be prefered used
