Good evening, friends !
Some days ago I became a "happy owner" of Nokia E70 (Symbian 9.1, S60 3rd edition). The smartphone not bad, but some bugs are present and work isn't always stable and quick.
For example, the cable connection is extremely unstable (first I have to find, how to put cutoff point into the phone, then I should not to breathe near the device). Why ? Is it difficult to make contacts a little longer ? Especially, as I know, this type of connection isn't new
But my main question concerns the software part. The E70 has two keyboards - numerical, as all other phones, and QWERTY, as ordinary computer. May be, you know, that there are three east-Slavonic languages: russian, ukrainian and belorussian.
I live in Ukraine and use two of them - russian and ukrainian. Their alphabets have some letters, which are differ. There are some letters in the Russian, which are not present in Ukrainian, and vice versa. That's why computers, phones, PDAs and other devices need to have differen input languages, different keyboard layout.
My E70 have both languages as input - Ukrainian and Russian. And when I use numeriacal keyboard, all OK. But in the QWERTY mode instead of special Ukrainian symbols Russian are typed. And that's why in this mode Ukrainian layout don't present, but Russian has two !!!
In the Ukrainian Nokia representative office I learned, that this bug is't plan to be repaired. BUT WHY ?!?!?!? It's 10 minutes of programmer work, because everything required is present. And it's astonishing, that it was not made at once.
Will be this bug corrected in the future ?????
