Ex-Nokia employee to create the rugged premium Android segment with $1300+ Adaia phones in early 2014

0. phoneArena 03 Jul 2013, 05:54 posted on

The first Adaia prototype has a 4.8" screen and is able to withstand depths of hundred feet, all within a premium design in collaboration with the BMW DesignWorks studio. It won't be light or cheap when it lands early 2014, though...

There is always a alternative, this ex Nokia guy is just dumb!
I hope Nokia will never use Android, i have 3 Android devices Sony Xperia T, Asus Transformer and a Ouya console.....i must say Android is the most laggy and buggy os out there....hell even my old N8 with Symbian3 works better! I will never buy an Android device again!
Even if they put 2gb ram and a octacore cpu in a phone with Android it will not matter because Android is not optimized!

Lag less is important today, but it is not the top priority for everybody... fans of WP8 and iOS might feel that complete smooth UI is the most important thing in th world... but a power user, one that wants to do more, with full features and take advantage of useful applications, will tent to agree that Android is the best OS for that matter...

I, for instance, use my phone (even if its not the most powerful one, Sony Xperia Acro S... even older than your Xperia T) in a way that maybe a 3% of Android users would... I regularly mirror it to my TV, take advantage of the CEC features, use a bluetooth keyboard, plug a mouse to the USB OTG cable... use it as a PC Remote, download content with a torrent client, automatize it so I done have to take it out of my pocket to turn on/off my WiFi, BT etc all the time...

So you get the picture... I really don't care that much if my phone has a hiccup from time to time... or if there is a bit of frame drops when scrolling... What I really care is that I am able to do things I couldn't do on a different OS... And with a phone that I chose based on hardware and software features to my liking... unlike an iPhone where you don't get many choices... and WP8 which is still very limited...

All the things you are doing on your phone, Symbian can do :)
Remember the 808 Pureview with it's 1,3ghz single core cpu? It can record 1080p movies, hell ut can records even 4k movies which was done a few weeks ago. The battery life is awsome, my old N8 that i only use for making photo's and movies i need to charhe once in 3 weeks (standby) when using actively it holds up to 2/3 days. No other OS or phonemaker can do that. i use a N9 now for almost 2 years. To bad they killed it! I must say Meego is one of the best os's ever made! But i already ordered my Jolla device and also thinking to buy the EOS :)

There are no alternatives for a startup, unless you consider spending years and a lot of money on developing your own OS, as Symbian is being slain, WinMo has high licensing fees and Tizen is incomplete. So for a startup, the free, open source Android is likely the only viable OS. Obviously iOS is not an option.
