Listen, Nokia, I promise that not all of us Americans think that NASCAR is real racing
How about (WWE-style) wrestling? Is that in the opinion of Americans just for show, or real sport? Your answer determines whether Nokia will bring the 808 to the US or not.
Looks like Sweden is getting it thanks to popular demand from consumers & subsequently service providers. I'm sure microsoft would prefer not to have it available in its home base but I think if enough people showed their love for it, we would be able to get our hands on this wonderous Nokia Belle FP1 (Symbian Carla?) phone. I really dont know why everyone claims symbian to be a dead platform, my n8's battery is a fraction of the new Droid Razr and it lasts atleast as much if not longer on power saving mode thanks to the beautiful Belle. Sure Symbian Belle might not be as efficient as Anna, and some things undoubtedly crash once in a blue moon (nothing that a well formed update couldn't fix). But thats just because it was created for cellphones with twice the specs as my phone. And Belle is far far far far far far (you get the picture) more customizable than any other OS present. I mean on each home screen, I have icons alligned in a particular way for vertical view, & in another way for horizontal view; it's tuned to my finger's accessibility. You can't do that on an android (believe me I've tried). Yes, Symbian s^3 did suck! It sucked big time! But Anna's efficiency and Belle's beauty is unparalleled. & I really dont get why people don't see symbian for the modern future-ready OS it has become (Try fitting a 41 MP onto any of the other OSes, they'll surely crapp in their covers )
