BTW, how come you got upset by Nokia's advertising campaign? Rolling Eyes All those "big" mobile phone manufacturers do so to promote their new products.

Well I don't know how it looked like in HK, but here the commercials were a kind of irritating - 'regular' people telling how cool the phone is. I dont see other brands advertisie a lot.

Touch input is not that bad. A good keyboard application almost predicts your thoughts Wink I use swift key for android.

I see. Nokia's marketing team should take your feedback seriously! Wink

The S4 Mini seems almost perfect to me! Smile But I guess it will cost a lot more than does Lumia 720. Crying or Very sad Wink

YONG do you consider buying an Android based phone?

I am not a big fan of Linux, I like Android very much though.

The OS (Windows Phone / Android) is not a big concern to me. The apps are. Nokia Lumia provides a fantastic web mapping platform Here that can be used even offline, which is a feature I very much like and occasionally need. Wink

Is the "Here" app as powerful as google maps (available on Android devices)? Nokia/Ovi maps on my Nokia 5320 lack some quite important routes of my city (they did not fix anything since I have this phone - 2,5 years).

When concerning apps, some that are free for Android are not free of charge on the Windows platform.

iOS = (Objective-C close to machine language) flawless and fluid
Android: (JAVA, BYTECODE-->VM-->MACHINECODE, lags like hell not matter your memory) Free Development tools and more revenue + less restrictions.
Most Android smart phones can't play 720p-1080p movies. The iPod touch can, again flawlessly with 100% no lag.

Google got the game though.

Android lags because of JAVA. Maybe they (Google) should release at least a C SDK so we can directly talk to the CPU instead of going through some virtual machine. I mean imagine the joy of writing inline assembly.

Maybe NDK is the thing you are looking after?

The "Here" feature seems very powerful, according to the online reviews. It provides not just maps, but also navigation and many other useful transport tips. I am not sure whether Google Maps allows users to download the maps for the entire country (or even many countries), which is allowed in "Here". Wink

:shocked:

I didn't know it already existed. Oh well... Downloading it.

Thanks to NDK, newLISP and 4th had been successfully ported to Android.

Now, I guess the challenge is to write GUI apps fully using NDK. Wink

Meh ! If they have libraries for it it won't be a big deal. Just same old void * pointer = createThis(parameters), useThis(&pointer); closeThis(&pointer);

or pointer = createThis(); pointer->callThis();

Of course it does both navigation and allows downloading maps, so they could be used to offline viewing and navigation Smile

E: to be clear, unfortunately you cant download as many data as you want, it is limited to a couple of thousands square kilometers. I bet, google is preparing a release version (still beta) of navigation, which won't be free of charge Wink
