Shows they are taking the impending competition seriously, I hope this results in some nice developments in the near future!!

I haven't used Symbian since I had my Motorola A1000 in Australia.  It was a great phone - my first completely touchscreen handset with a joystick and some bumper buttons - was great for playing Sega games on it :)  But I digress...I'd be keen to see what is coming out of the Symbian labs these days - what phones are using it now?  Where can I go to find some info on upcoming projects? 

Nokia need to do something ambitious and daring otherwise they risk losing their market share.  For me, their phone's have not been innovative enough in the last few years.  But I'm loyal to the brand and hope they can put up some hefty competition.

All the E and N series Nokia's, is the easiest answer, but there are many more from multiple different brands
