I am VERY impressed with the Android OS performance! What really grabbed my attention was the ability to have different versions of the same widget: such an ultimate form of customization! The different graphical representations of the clock also left me in awe. Honestly, I look at my N97 and feel like Nokia is REALLY headed to a stagnant state of complacency with the Symbian touch OS unless it can do something quickly to revamp it. Touch interfaces such as Android and Palm's WebOS (and even Apple) are slowly but surely making the Symbian 5th edition look like the Palm Garnet!
However, the lack of a qwerty keypad still doesn't do me any good...and I am skeptical that the Android can measure up to the multimedia prowess of Nokia's hardware. The OS on my N97 may prove to be antiquated in comparison to others, but I am happy to remain with it as long as it works for me with its sufficient hardware. Taking the risk to also tolerate a lesser quality in camera performance, speaker output, and possibly reception/call quality would not be worth it in my opinion.
The more I think about my allegiance to Nokia, the more I wonder if it is stemmed from a fear of change. After all, for years I have been religiously using the same 3rd party applications and utilities with every Nokia device I came across and had no trouble. Stepping outside of the Nokia box and considering a different device would cause me to have to rethink my entire outlook on using a smartphone. Maybe I am simply not willing to take the chance to accept such an endeavor for the sake of maintaining normalcy.
