why is it that when nokia makes a phone unlocked, 99% of the time it has an fm radio, but when it's for at&t, they take out the fm radio?! That's screwed up! I can't think of one nokia phone on at&t that has an fm radio in it, but I can think of almost every nokia phone made unlocked with one. Screw you at&t!

The lower portion looks like Motorola and the phone is much wider I guess. Though it is not clear in this angle.

Half-qwerty means worthy. Forgive me for the play of words but it's really intimidating to use this type of input solution.

While dedicated QWERTYs just rely on the write typing for input to be successful, half-QWERTYs require a special algorithm to predict the desired word after the total keystrokes have been generated (two letters per key. This works perfectly for the english language but suffers with other languages (requiring inbox support).

In the Philippines, for example, texters create text messages employing super-abbreviated words to compress as much content possible into the 160-char limit. Example: m curntly w8ng 4 my documt8tn 2b apruvd by d apropriatns coMT by PM. The sentence is essentially correct but I doubt if the software algorithm would allow you to generate such message

The sentence actually reads: "I'm currently waiting for my documentation to be approved by the appropriations committee by afernoon."

I highly doubt this phone will be a success ...

I mean, a 2 MP Cam only .. and reg. Music- We know music is not good in Nokias generally ...


So, where does this set stand? Business needs? maybe ...

Focus is still not clear ...
