My first smartphone was Nokia N8 which featured Symbian^3 operating system, a 12 megapixels carl zeiss lens, 16GB + expandable microSD storage (hot-swappable) + FM Transmitter + USB on the go. I was too delighted with my new Nokia N8, 2 years back. I could do so much with that super awesome Symbian^3 smartphone and it was a great multimedia + gaming experience. Still I do have Nokia N8 and use it for my cellular, camera, fm transmitter & usb on the go needs. Symbian has been abandoned by Nokia and there was an immense need for me to switch to any other OS which is closest to Symbian. Unfortunately iOS and Windows Phone 8 are far away from Symbian Belle and Android Jelly Beans.
