Nokia 5250 goes official - few features for low price - read the full textSo, we meet again the Nokia 5250. This time there are better photos, actual official specs and price too. The Nokia 5250 will cost a bit over a 100 euro - it's not the coveted 100 euro smartphone but it comes pretty close. The Nokia 5250 has a rather modest specs sheet - it runs Symbian^1...

Always wonder why can't the almighty brand simply lower the prices of old models (like 5230/5800) and give those additional features "free" to customers, rather than always TRY to make a SO CALLED NEW MODEL with minimal differences from the previous ones.

Additional tooling, molding, printing, packaging, instruction not only cost more to the company (and eventually to the consumers), what about the unsold units of the previous models? I heard somewhere in order for the company to "sustain" the prices of the (so called) new models, some unsold units would be sent to the landfills directly.

We simply don't need a company making trash products trashing more trash to our beloved planet.

Nokia got a bit of their styling cues from Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 Mini series eh?

Everyone's been wondering why Nokia hasn't adopted super AMOLED, fast processors or making an ALL IN ONE device, say has all the nice features: Android/Symbian 4/meego (or some other stable OS'es, 12.1 Mpix cam, HD video rec, huge memory, 3G, WIFI...etc..etc... cuz, if they do make a device like that, people wont buy any other phone produced by them anymore, and ok, they might give that "Perfect" device a new design over time, but most probably people will go about saying: "ahhh...its the same stuff...BORING!" "Uh...nothing new, same old specs.." i bet nokia's taking it slow at the moment...lol

ordinary people like us just needs a feature phone with full touch capabilities so S40 OS will do the trick..

> In reply to [deleted post]I cannot agree any further that this is just a waste of everyone's time...the fact that the nokia cannot afford to lose out in market share and is preparing to make up by this low cost unit to appeal to larger mass; wake up! It's an App world today! Go work on OS...

This phone will penetrate the masses because of the price & it will outsell more than the andriod & iphones worldwide.

Nice phone ... great price, but honestly, I would pay a little more to buy Nokia 5230 to get GPS and 3,2" screen... If this phone was released by the time Samsung Corby was released, would had beat the crap out of Corby...
