In between the odd lag now and then, yes jelly bean is butter smooth.
But we all like the funky tiles now anyway
For the same price you can get a one and a half years old samsung galaxy gio s5660, android froyo, 3.2” screen, 3.2mp camera, 158mb internal storage, 278mb of ram, and a dozen of problems (especially wifi). And you are talking about bad decisions of Nokia to release the low end lumia 501 ?!!
its nice phone & in compare with any Andriod phone , there in no back up in Android phone
lawlee is right, this phone is aimed for developing countries where not everyone can afford an iPhone, or a high end Android or WP8 device. Actually most of the smartphone sales are lead by low to mid end phones so this phone will fare well.
oHHYAA, 03 Oct 2012Great stuff more boring tiles from boring nokia.Does anyone care about windows.Ya we all do!!
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2012So why would ANYONE buy this over Lumia 900 which is already selling at $50 on contract? Nokia... more150 is the price without contract. which is way cheaper than 50 with contract. It is low-range, maybe it's targeted for entry users
150$? I would buy it without regret. Worth for basic wp experience. Worth for media and youtube. And for internet browsing. But in fact I won't buy it because i'll buy Lumia 920:)
for $150 it is a good deal not everybody has money in his pocket ready to blowed
Totally useless phone from Nokia, Zero sales worldwide. It is a very old phone, i prefer and android instead of this windows7 discontinued OS phone.
madMAN, 03 Oct 2012Okay, Nokia... A nice budget device... I wouldn't stress the RAM too much, hopefully they'll b... moreThis. I had a chance to get a Lumia 710 really, really cheap (and it's a great phone) but couldn't make myself go for it because of no Opera Mini, no mass storage, no USB tethering and... Zune. I've no idea if my (not very new) PC would run it smoothly or it's a piece of bloatware. Anyway, I'm hoping WP8 will fix some of these issues as I really don't want Android or iOS like everyone else so the only choice I have is Symbian.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2012So why would ANYONE buy this over Lumia 900 which is already selling at $50 on contract? Nokia... moreit's sad you know jack shit about business.
This is to target the lower class people of the world, more importantly 3rd world countries. the Nokia 1100 is the most popular cell phone ever made because it was cheap.
With all these expensive smart phones, this is an excellent marketing stradegy. That being said, I still believe Nokia should also start making android phones, along with windows phones, just like samsung and htc. other wise they will really be screwed. But yes, in this case, very smart thing nokia is doing.
oHHYAA, 03 Oct 2012Great stuff more boring tiles from boring nokia.Does anyone care about windows.Agree. Ugly tiles locked behind Windiws bars.
Windows Phone Fan, 03 Oct 2012Like the hate. WP can run on 256MB RAM. Of course android fans will hate that. All seen th... moreWP can run on 256GB RAM bcos it has nothing but plain ugly tiles. Its just a basic phone with limited usage.
