'why Nokia would want to keep this feature on its cheaper device and away from those who paid more money for its more expensive handsets'
Makes sense, it is more fun to surf using better, bigger, faster, and more expensive handsets, and use the cheaper device to provide wifi signal, than the other way around.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2012at 11k this is a kickass device.Is it that cheap?
My goodness. I've had featurephones cost more than that.
Nokia's so called Smart Phones are not smart enough with Symbian.They better get out of this category and focus on low end models where they can just hang on.
motoATRIX2, 17 Mar 2012lol nokia has 3 to 4 OS..? is it symbian then upgraded to symbian anna symbian belle. what el... moreNokia produces phones with
- Windows Phone 7 OS
- Symbian S60v3 & V5
- Nokia Belle /S^3 and Anna included/ (despite having Symbian basis, are very much different)
- MeeGo (it still requires updates and OS maintaining, regardless of how much phones or models are out there)
Symbian has this feature years ago...
If all that Microsoft-Nokia effort was not spent on reinventing the wheel the whole would be far better.
If Microsoft is to take part, why doesn't team around Symbian, being a lot better than the "next version will be good and have apps" Windows?

Lumia 800 and 710 comes so quikly that it was impossible to lauch everything in a one time. I understand very vell if i buy new phone today, tomorrow it is old because development goes on.
Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 had mango with internet sharing disabled due to carrier stuff. It was a bit complicated back then but now Nokia IS bringing internet sharing on both 800 and 710, plus panorama on 800.
nokia is just making fool of us.i bought an n8 five months ago which is a quite worthy phone for me atleast but after a few days,nokia launched the 701 which being a relatively cheaper phone than n8, possesses more ram and cpu,gpu.i dont know that why nokis is adopting such a behaviour.i think that nokia wants only its cheap handsets to be sold not the expensive ones.and if anyone wants to buy anm expensive handset,he should either buy an iphone or an htc .thats for sure
