Nokia lost me as a loyal customer when they made their power sockets so tiny they'd BREAK.
What's the f***ing use of a f***ing phone if you can't f***ing charge it?
I hope it fixes a bug an earlier firmware upgrade introduced to my E72...
...namely, when editing calendar entries, the line you're editing suddenly goes blank, so you can't see what you're doing. Great quality control there, fellas.
Still holding onto my good ol' N82.
Amazing camera (Carl Ziess optics and a proper flash) and an amazing ability to pick up a signal *anywhere* means i have no reason to upgrade quite yet.
(an iTouch is on app duty)
Why didn't they fix the old firmwares instead?
I'd be happy if at least they released a N96 firmware that it wouldn't reset whenever one tries to use the GPS. Not that I am using that crap much any more - dumped it for an Android long ago. I'd just like to have been able to at least use it as a small GPS, instead of having it in a drawer somewhere, as nobody would buy it second hand.
and the world goes
