This would be a great backup phone for the high end users here.

i dont see anything wrong with this phone . Its a good entry level phone. And there are millions who will buy this. there are people who talk hours together on phone . Obviously we cant hold sgs 3 or iphone so long near our ear .Every guy and girl at my college has an entry phone for talking and sms.

In 2013 chinese droids or even samsungs may cost you only 50$ which will kill all feature phones and already manufacters are starting to fix battery issues and google also, i always beleived that nokia should kept symbian s60 v3 for cheap phones and like what nokia e5 provided and now e5 production is very cheap!! Besides of keeping s40, i am not a racist but with whatsapp, viber, tango, internet now all people at least need multitasking to be happy which symbian was the best in offering it before android came btw nokia now is pretty the only one to realease java mobiles in new editions

I bought a Nokia 1208 and I'm using it alongside my trusty C5. I can't wait to see what the Nokia 109 can do.

If it can run whatsapp, a pretty good 'tough' 2nd phone for those on the go when you can't take that smartphone with you...

Must all people go for Android? Main thing of a mobile is making calls. Nokia knows that. People who can't charge their mobile everyday and need a mobile for heavy use will surely buy this.
