Seriously? Man, Symbian already have Opera. Why do you need IE?

Oh I don't know, how about INDUSTRY GRADE ACCEPTANCE of IE10 and ActiveX controls for most online transactions (Abacus, Navitaire, Galileo, Magellan, Amadeus, etc.,).

After using IE on the Lumia 900, I'm in agreement. Best mobile browser I've ever used. If it had Flash it'd be as close to perfect as I can imagine at this point

Symbian is not implemented for smartphones i think thats the primary reason why they chose Microsoft

You are st....sir. Symbian is a grandfather of smartphones. Educate yourself before write such a stupid thing. Btw. Instant overclocking. Great:D But...why didn't they do that in the first place?
