Two things to note here.

The first is that Symbian is a microkernel. Security for a microkernel is much better in general. I haven't seen any major security problems with the KERNEL (I'm not denying their existence and would love to see an example of one).

Symbian uses a POSIX-based security model. The only malware I can find for Symbian is malware that MUST ASK the user for permission to be installation. Users installing unsafe applications is neither a kernel problem nor an OS problem. Problems such as modified firmware still require physical access to the device and time for flashing (note: I don't view software signature "problems" as a problem as I believe that flashing should be allowed even if it does pose certain risks).

Had a play with a Nokia Lumia 700 and 800 and I must say even as an Iphone owner, I was mighty impressed. COuld be becuase it was something new for me as I have been on Android and Iphone for the last few years, but overall the smoothness and overall design was very pleasing. If I didnt have a lot of paid apps on my phone I would definitely be tempted to get the new 900.

I like quotes like 'Android is the iOS killer' or 'iPads are the PC killer'. I could theoretically be able to kill anyone on a video game but it doesn't mean it's going to happen. The simple reason is external influences.

What I'm trying to say is something that doesn't sell well (compared to the big boys) doesn't make it stupid, unintuative and bad, it might just mean that it didn't come in at the right time to the business. For example - the Zune. Arguments aside it was beautiful hardware (IMO) and a fairly great product. However, Apple was first to the market with the support of most music companies, it already had the right infrastructure (iTunes) and was able to successfully market it's product. The Zune wasn't able to break through because for most people the iPod had the more appealing brand name and offered more support from the company as they were focused on the iPod. Microsoft's focus instead was on Xbox, Office and Windows.

If you think the iPhone 4S is dated, you have never looked at its screen, played a game on it or marvelled at its beautiful design. iOS is dated - the iPhone 4S to me is still one of the most advanced and perfect phones ever created.

Uh windows phone is outdated.

Unless windows phone allows for multiple sets of hardware, Android phones are going to continue to be more cutting edge
