Thanks Nokia for developing the said phones, considering the need
for common people. However they could have supported the said
phones with a better Camera and WiFi facilities.

It looks like a relaunched Nokia X2-01, which was very successful in the low range category.

Sad to say, Nokia doesn't produce decent quality of feature-phones anymore. Aside from my Android smartphone, I'm a proud owner of Nokia 6700 which IMO, has one of the best quality of camera in 5MP range (even better than iPhone4).

It even have GPS with Nokia Maps, Camera button, LED flash, 16M colors, 182 ppi and 170MB. And it was produced 3 years ago! Nokia, how about making a decent feature-phone for our parents who doesn't want to use full touchscreen?

If nokia had nt ditched symbian , it would have been in similar position ,but only way left was downward. But today thanks to elop ,we can expect nokia to rise. See the amount of hype surrounding L920.

Is Asha series the '''Plan B'' of Nokia! I don't thik so! But, If yes, Nokia is a Flop! Nokia... develope your former King Symbian as ''Plan B''. Give Symbian as much publicity as you are giving to Windows. You'll be the King again!
