I've had mine for over three months.  No problems have arisen outside the well documented annoyances (browser, keyboard, etc).

It's easy to slag something off when you have little if any personal experience of it, isn't it?

Yeah,since its symbian and nokia.

Yes.
The thing is S^3 is a failure.
Our comments are just the consequence of S^1 failure, and everyone is expecting that in S^3...


Right.  You think it's a failure because a previous version of an OS was a failure.  incidentally how many units did that 'failure' shift?.

Gotcha, that must mean why Windows 7 and OS X are crap because Vista and OS 9 were rubbish.

Oh wait.  They're not.

Arguing from a position of ignorance is easy if a bit pointless.

Loads quickly on mine. Your internet connection is probably slow

First, my internet is everything but slow. And what I actually meant was the scrolling down through the apps, it just goes slow. I don't see how my internet connection could cause that.

Vista? I use(d) it and really, my phone is slower, looks worse and crashes more often. I hope for everyone who owns a S^3 device that Nokia gives some good updates.

Edit:
symbian 3 sucks and wt r updates that bad lookin homescreen my desire slaps any symbian^3 phone Tongue huge and usefull apps for android and iphone

I know someone who owns an Android and says that also that store is full of useless apps. I guess you can find them in any store Wink!

Distimo has recently released their newest report on application growth.




Quote
Distimo launched a new report on state of the apps in 2010, covering all of the major application stores, including Apple’s AppStore, RIM’s BlackBerry App World, Google’s Android Market, Nokia’s Ovi Store, Palm’s App Catalog and Microsoft’s Windows Marketplace for Mobile. Here are the major findings:

Apple grew the most in 2010 in terms of the absolute number of applications, while the runners-up show more growth in terms of percentages. The Apple App Store for iPhone doubled its total during the past year to almost 300,000 applications, while the total number of applications available for Android, almost 130,000, is 6 times the number of applications available one year ago. BlackBerry App World and Nokia Ovi Store showed triple digit growth in the last year as well, reaching nearly 18,000 applications and 25,000 applications, respectively.
The high download volumes of free applications appear to attract developers to switch to ad-supported business model.
The top 300 free applications generated over 3 million downloads each day (average) during December 2010, while only 350,000 paid applications are downloaded daily. However, paid downloads increased almost 30% more than free downloads in the top 300 when comparing the download figures of December 2010 to those of June 2010.
Comparing June data to that of December, we see that the share of revenue generated by in-app purchases from the most grossing free applications more than doubled for both the iPhone and iPad. At the same time, the share of revenue generated by in-app purchases from free applications is much smaller on iPad (15%) compared to iPhone (34%).
Although the proportion of free applications grew, the average price of the applications also declined.
The Angry Birds series is the most popular game with a total of six appearances in the top lists of all stores. Facebook is the most popular non-game application with six appearances as well.


We see that OVI Store has the biggest free apps growth percentage.
Android Market shows the biggest growth (544%) in total store (expected to surpass Apple Store this year in total number of apps).
