new symbian devices
okay whoever doesnt know what symbian is.. please GET A LIFE! or goto www.allaboutsymbian.com for more details, infact everything u will EVER need to know about smartphones, first of all anyone who wants to buy a new phone or is looking for a replacement for their old ones, i would recommend u a smartphone with symbian OS. to see the complete list of symbian devices, www.symbian.com/phones/index.html recently at cannes in france a global mobile communication expo took place known as the 3GSM world congress and alot of new phones were shown that would be available to us, the consumer in some time.. namely they were the panasonic X800 which is a good upgrade to their predecessor the X700, the sendo X2 which is also a good music smartphone and the Nokia 6680 and 6681 and 6682, the later are which GSM and the 6680 is 3G (3rd generation smartphone) we currently in pakistan have 3 GSM operators with 2 newcomers yet to arrive (telenor and warid telecom) none of which will have a 3G network so the Nokia 6680's capabilities will be of no use sadly although if u want to use it for EDGE (enhanced data rates for global evolution) it will be good. Ufone is the 2.5G network in pakistan today and mobilink and paktel are 2G which means we are a GENERATION behind in terms of technology as only a single operator offers GPRS which has the maximum speed of 40.2kbps.. EDGE can go upto 104kbps and HSDPA(high speed data packet access) or 3G or 3.5G and WCDMA networks offer capacity upto 10 or 14MBPS which can enable live video streaming, movie streaming, talking and browsing all at the same time but for us pakistanis, i would not recommend buying a 3G phone until we get a 3G operator. i would recommend an EDGE enabled handset as it is heard that telenor and warid both will pack a punch to Ufones SLOW GPRS. that time will tell but i will be prepared.. details of the new phones are not mentioned here as it will be recreating the information that is already there on the internet, check the manufactures website for more details..
