Well this time I am coming with a news that might sound bad to most of you. As tipped by one of the readers Biohazard on my post, Nokia Sweden commented on their facebook wall that PR1.1 is coming in February, which should end the speculations that if there is still any hope for PR1.1 in January 2011 itself.
It might look ugly, but not beyond expectations, I was actually expecting them to do the same and even if it will annoy many N8 users out there, it was well reasonable to drop PR1.1 completely and coming with PR2.0 with major changes only. But what’s making me think that its still PR1.1 that is coming in February, if it is so, then would be a huge disappointment for sure.
Why I would have supported the drop of PR1.1?
Sometimes you best of efforts get scrapped due to overall impressions. Like you seen with Nokia N8. It had best of build so far in a way, had best of mobile camera, had USB OTG for the first time, had Dolby Digital, then even came with Symbian^3 like brand new and superbly performing OS, but still just coming up early before finishing …. made N8 standing somewhere, where it should have not been.
It still the best from Nokia, its still selling like hot cake.. I never seen same Nokia handset in so many hands at many places, I never seen these many pre-orders. Nokia N8 still has the charm, but if they were allowed to delay the launch to come with PR2.0 likes only then the story was something else, but even we fans were not ready for that and Nokia didn’t wanted to let down its fans.
By the way, here is the link of Nokia’s Official page mentioning the same. Link
Do tell me what you think on it
