Motorola Q9: 11.8mm
classic? Nokia 6500 classic 9.5 mm!!!
Motorola L6: 10.6mm

NOW do the math dude!

So when did the almighty brand release N72? June 2009.

Motorola Q8, at 11.5mm, was released in July 2005.

It took the almighty brand 4 years to reduce 1.5mm thickness?

6500C? Released in May 2007? Motorola L6 was released back in 2005 Q1.

Again it took the almighty brand 2 years to reduce 1mm of thickness?

How about the N76? 13.7mm? Motorola V9 13.5mm...

What a copycat....

also, according to your "thicker the better for the fans" theory, N72 and 6500C must be the WORST SELLING handsets by the almighty brand.

Is that true? I doubt so.

The truth I know is the fact, at least 2 of my friends have dumped their N72 in favor for again the almighty brand, who may know how to make thin phones in every other form, doesn't know how to make a thin "touch screen" phone.

I agree with Keith , who is going to pay 800$ for a phone. The same thing happened when i saw the Sony Ericsson Satio and got really exited until i saw the price, ridiculous.

Really? Check out the specs of the full qwerty keypad phones:
Motorola Q9: 11.8mm
E63: 13mm
Classic series? 6700 C? 11.2mm
Motorola L6: 10.6mm

E75? 14.4mm
Motorola Milestone (with touchscreen): 13.7mm

Do the math dude!

"N-series is a institution for it's size. Nokia made this big survey in 2008 about their phones on their webpage, and the N-series fans actually like "manly" size of the N-series. Believe me or not, if Nokia made N-series flagships like 9 mm thin, they would loose alot money cause the fans won't but it."

Loose $ bcoz the fans won't buy them? If so, why didn't your beloved almighty brand continue to INSIST on NOT releasing touchscreen phones? Fans of the almighty brand would support whatever products it makes anyway...

Kid, if you ever study marketing, a successful company would go out and capture market share / customers from OTHER COMPETITORS, while "retaining" its own customers, that should ensure the greatest profit.

Did iphone just focus on its "own" customers to upgrade from 2G/3G to 3GS? I can tell you, most of the iphone users I know are NEW to Apple, and most of them, yes, used to own almighty brand's phones. (2 more are getting ready to switch within this month as I know).

The almighty brand may post a survey on ITS website, though who will post any reply there other than fans of the brand? Fans of the brand are likely to say yes to whatever it makes that a 20mm thick phone, a phone that has micro-USB data port but does NOT support charing via USB, etc...

The greatest potential users are the ones who are NOT existing users of certain brand, and if a brand only focuses on its own customers, it certainly will loose market shares soon. Indeed most phone users do NOT spend time to post articles on any that brand specific or not.

"I have to agree, N-series feels great in the hand and the size is always perfect for comfortable grip and holding."

I'd bet "someday" when the almighty brand releases a 13.7mmm touchscreen phone with qwerty, you'd probably say "yeah, such size is perfect".

Let's see how much it costs too. If they price it like SE priced the X10, then it'll flop. Who's going to pay $800 - $1000 for a handset?

Could have the best specs ever but if the OS is crap, who's going to buy?

Look at the iPhone. I am no fan of it. But it is proof that you don't need great hardware specs to sell phones. You just need a strong OS with a solid user experience.

We're moving on to a software world. That's why Android is picking up in poularity. Symbian^3 still won't come close to Android. This is what Nokia needs to focus. More megapixels isn't going to get you more sales from anybody except for a few tech geeks. Nokia and Symbian need to focus on the guts of the OS and then on the Ovi app store. The stuff in there is crap right now (especially compared to Android Market for example).

Compare to the halfmighty SE K850, this one uses properitary cpu, 256 k color display + xenon, clearly it consumes battery power less than N82.
