The 5800 runs out of memory when you access too many apps than it could handle.

I agree that Nokia should drop edof cameras "but" these fones coming out were already in the making as it takes 12-18 months to bring a fone to shops.I have also noted BB using edof cameras to which i am bewildered as A/F is needed in buisness smartfones,,arrrgghh.

1GHz for what??? Does this support at least 720p Video playback or recording? Does this device have full flash support? Does this device play good games? 1GHz to make calls, send sms, mms and at most browse the internet... This is so silly..... Come on Nokia, stop making a fool out of yourself and become what you were once again... We all still love you....

Now Nokia is entering from technology business to show business to witness the taste of another failure. I think nokia management should be change completely if they still want to breath the last air before collapse.

is it only me to think how twisted is nokia ?

high end touch screen devices gets lower cpu with the excuse that it is enough for symbian


c3-01, a device that doesn't need high CPU clock, gets a 1ghz which can run standart android phone resolution (480x800) with 4" screen smoothly..

Yes, it's wasted money, cos now money is very very hard to earn and gold also continuing rising and rising every day.

Just make call and simple simple are OK for life.
If wanna doing everything LAPTOP is better and smart choice. Thanks

LAPTOP now is suitable price that we can afford why should we buy a phone that cost like or over it.

Wast Wast Money Money, NO Money, whether all of you can beg some one else. Who help you, except you yourself. Thanks

What a beautiful phone! This will be the next BIG THING and it's Nokia's secret weapon that will kill Android. Nokia is so smart and realized that gold is something that everyone wants and fused that with a great phone.

This is the Android and iPhone killer. Nokia scored 2 hits with one stone with this phone. Good job Nokia!

Yeah 1 gightz & no multi tasking?? Come on Nokia you can make some cracking good phones but this is silly. They could have done better upgrading the screen to higher res with capacitive too. And AF focus camera

I love how these little phones are getting the 1GHz CPU, but their top-tier are stuck on the 680MHz CPUs. Also, maybe this looks better in person, but that picture to me just looks like some fake "fashion" phone. Nothing elegant at all about it. They need to go back to the drawing board if they want to capture Arte users who are retiring their older models.

what is wrong with you nokia? it's getting harder and harder to defend these recent phones against any of the other phones. if you want to waste money, why don't you produce a phone like N82 again? i would for one buy it for sure cause i used to love it. this one is fugly though!

Just a simple phone drowned in gold to make it look special. Only for people who love blingbling stuff. But even if you're willing to pay that much there are better choices.
