    What are your exit strategies? What are your exit strategies?

    Default What are your exit strategies?

    For those of you who have held on to Symbian for as long as possible, but who will be moving on when WhatsApp stops working, which platform are you moving to?
    How many are going to hold fast even without WA? (i'm looking in your direction, padrino )

    Never used WA and use my 808 for imagining mainly. During family events and holiday gatherings it is sees a lot of action. Fundamentally, it still does all the basics for me. I'm going to hold on to my 808 indefinitely as it's so versatile and still very useful. Heck, it still does things that my some of the newer phones out there don't do or don't do well! Maybe Nokia will make some kind of successor now that they're back in the phone business....

    Well, I still do have my N8 with my very own CFW and will keep my 808. But because of all the struggles with certificate errors, browsers that don't support today's websites and Whatsapp being discontinued, I will have to get another primary device. At the moment I'm planing to get a Blackberry Priv because of Android, it's design and the keyboard. But I'm still hoping thatin the rumors of "new Nokia" are true and that they will launch a new device with Pureview in near future.

    If you get the Priv, you might want to try a different launcher - the BlackBerry launcher is crap
