Having mucked with both I would have to say that Symbian appears to be
worse. At least when it comes to bloat. Killing off S80 (the new E90
Communicator is S60) seems like a good choice. The old 9110 communicator
(GEOS based) was more stable, snappier and had better cross app
communication even though the CPU was running at a fraction of the speed
of the 9300i. Linux ran pretty well even on the first iPaqs (even X) -
have not tried the latest, but I'm pretty sure it rocks these days.
