S40 is NOT Symbian!!! Nokia OS = S40!
...S60 e.g. is Symbian.

I really hope nokia bring back Xpress Music lineup. or at least give Asha some stereo speakers please.

I love my old Xpress Music phone, even though it's just a simple S40 phone.

I just want they (Nokia) to build again their symbian with HD display resolutin, one Gig of RAM and Dual core processor. Thats all

Those phones are too cheap but this is normal Nokia always provide cheap prices even their flagship phone 920 for 450$.
People hate cheap brands since they use cheap materials, Galaxy ACE or Galaxy Y are way better options with few extra dollars but you can guarantee the quality its pure Samsung hand build not Foxccon or Compal.
And the worst part is these phones run a dead OS "Symbian"! Why they didn't use WP7?
Is it because it needs large battery? or bigger Ram or it will lag like Nokia 710 with these specs?

why don't you use your symbian anymore?
FP2 on 808 is great... Or did you try the N9? Amazing devices!!

Of course it is still alive. This is where Nokia is making money even Lumia with WP7.5 can't bluetooth.

If I'm not mistaken
Memory: Up to 10MB free user memory; up to 32GB micro-SD card
Nokia always repeat the same mistake with very tiny internal memory.
