I updated my Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and lo behold the whole thing is slow as a snail now. What’s worse? Their own DRMed (Digital Restrictions Management) concked off and won’t allow me to play the songs preloaded in the phone. That did not bother me anyway because they had a terrible set of songs in the first place.
So I am asking Nokia – give me a job for optimising your operating systems (Series 60 Rel 5). I’ve done that on my game earlier and can do it again. On the other hand if things don’t get better Nokia will lose a loyal customer. Watch out for HTC is in town now.
