I already prefer S40 to Symbian S60 and i'm really happy about new features coming. Who need a "smart" system when this is not able to remind appointments (organizer of S60 is buggy)?
I own a S40 with wifi, gps, 5MP zeiss camera, SD slot (etc.), and i wouldn't exchange it with a N Series, no way!

to people commenting, give yourselves a break. there are tons of models of phones out there. its up to you to find what's good for you based on your need or whatever.
if you don't like the phone don't buy it. life is simple.
Abs, 31 Dec 2009There is nothing wrong with dual sim phones. Dual sim is a very helpful technology in my part... morethere is really nothing wrong with dual sim phones. i agree.
but I totally disagree when you said Nokia could learn a thing or two from Chinese dual SIM phones. Its the other way around. Are you sure that Nokia doesn't know about dual SIM phones or technology? GSM was created in Europe not in China.
and how come these Chinese dual SIM phones are clones/copies of Nokia, Apple, Blackberry. etc.
Nokia software is ru, 04 Jan 2010I think they need to sort out there software issue's with there phones first what needs to be sorted is for you to know if the product is worth buying or not. if not, then don't get it. find something that suits you.

Anonymous, 06 Jan 2010That's the strategy of the almighty brand....keep so called "upgrading" its low-end phones...s... moreI don't see anything mighty about the brand your talking about.
AFAIK, all manufacturers will continue to come up with new phones. For them to continue doing this, people have to buy new phones to replace their old ones. And this cycle goes on and on.
If you don't want something getting upgraded or a new phone from being made, hey, you got to convince all the people who help this cycle goes on.
If nobody buys your almighty brand then for sure, they'll stop upgrading or making new phones.
Nokia software is ru, 04 Jan 2010I think they need to sort out there software issue's with there phones first and what makes you think they don't... Anyway that's what you think, it doesn't mean its true. People this days say a lot of things that sometimes doesn't make sense.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2010I think that adding touchscreen to s40 is the worst idea I ever heard, firstly because s40 and... moreThat's the strategy of the almighty brand....keep so called "upgrading" its low-end phones...so much to the point they still can't match "old" mid/high end phones (like N95/5800)...
Part of the reason is the company can then keep on releasing so called "new phones", bombarding pages of various media, showroom space for various electronics / phone shops, so to ensure no one else (who can afford to put so much $ on advertising), printing out more boxes, putting more old (unsold) handsets to the landfills...and eventually drive the polar bears out of the ice cubes...
I think most users of 1100 don't care if the almighty continues to offer 3310...as to these users, as long as the phone can make / receive calls / SMS, that's all they care. Why continue to "upgrade" 1100?
I think that adding touchscreen to s40 is the worst idea I ever heard, firstly because s40 and s60 look quite similar, and everyone complains about s40 because it lacks stuff like multitasking and a gallery which s60 has, yet even s60 isn't fully complete yet in touch department, why not focus on that instead? It will only get mobile noobs wondering whether the best phone is the 5530 or the new s40 touchscree. WHat will nokia say??? The newer one has fewer capabilities that the older?????
Extremely stupid. S40 is dead, I just got rid of my s40 phone to buy a touch s60 phonee, which I enjoy more.
I wonder what resolution these s40 touchscreens shall run on. I hope it's not nHD too, otherwise I really really don't see the point. WVGA is ideal...
I think they need to sort out there software issue's with there phones first
It's about time to upgrade S40. They might add multitasking to S40, which SE phones are already into. Cheaps get pimped.
It'd really be nice to have a dual sim s40 or even s60. . . It would give them an edge here in the Nigerian market
we want another n95:
even if nokia just put the n95 motherboard into a new thinner and stylish case, we buy it?
Nokia sued apple for patent infrindgement. We win if we get multitouch on capacitive screeen
nokia win if apple are ordered to wihdraw iphone ipod

But the N97 being a touchscreen is what I finally chose to replace it with.
Yaxao, 31 Dec 2009Im sorry to say that to you but Nokia N95 8gb i pritty awesome. I have bought one actually a 1... moreI never said it was a bad phone. I still own one and I think it is awesome and I still consider up there in some of the best phones. Its strong, looks cool and has almost every feature you could hope for. But don't get me wrong, although it is great that it has heaps of onboard memory, it is pain stakingly slow. Sure it's fine to transfer a few photos off, but when trying to copy about 6GB of MP3's onto it at 700-800KB\s... I think you know what I'm getting at.

There is nothing wrong with dual sim phones. Dual sim is a very helpful technology in my part of the world. I am glad that Nokia is getting into it becoz currently, it's only Samsung of the big 3 who makes great dual sim/standby phones. Heck, Nokia could learn a thing or two from the Chinese dual sim phones. You won't find any phone that can function as a regular TV set except a china phone. If Nokia could make a capacitive touchscreen dual sim/standby s60 symbian smartphone that can also be a TV I would definitely buy it.
