stalker, 24 Mar 2011hmm.. I bet you are not just smart enough to know what an smartphone is. lol!Of course I know what smartphone is all about. I guess Nokia knows but is struggling in it's devt of a new OS. Symbian is not relevant in the smartphone game anymore. So, guess where is Symbian OS ending up? In the drain of course. Nokia is facing out Symbian in phases without choice to remain competitive and has chosen to work with Microsoft for windows7. So please don't argue for the sake of arguing. These are facts. Even the CEO of Nokia admitted their struggling with competitiion and market share in the high end smartphone level. Nokia has been in too entrenched in its own problem internally and has affected their own smartphone devt. In the end, they are outsoursing instead and decided on microsoft. So don't be native here. If you want to know Why Nokia has chosen to work with Microsoft, I would be happy to enlighten you too.
Nagol, 24 Mar 2011I really don't get the hate for Nokia on this website at all. I mean everytime I go into a Nok... moreNagol,
What is happening outside are the facts that people are turning into android and apple OS . These are the talk of the town and majority are purchasing these os base phones.
If Nokia wants to back in the business , it time for them to do something with their trademark (symbian) and stop coming out with such handphones that always have the same problem of hanging hanging hanging ,
there is no special in this
this is confirm that nokia is getting down in 2011 onwards
also they are showing a new model by printing on panel as t mobile we have to think its a new model
fucking battery back up dont go for this mobiles
Nokia's phones should be release in 2008 with these lame specs
Nokia get out of here and hey Gsmarena remove Nokia from the list they should not be on the top of phones list
What the hell is happening to nokia.
why they r still sticking to fixed focus
otherwise it will be great set.
Nagol, 24 Mar 2011I really don't get the hate for Nokia on this website at all. I mean everytime I go into a Nok... moreFail comment. Symbian is old and cant do 1/3 of what Android can do. Battery life? Performance and usability comes with a price.
Thats why Symbian is dead and Nokia will follow.
still nokia sucks brining this astound phone what kinda name is that.nokia making different design but same inside. need more rework man.
benny, 23 Mar 2011give up Nokia join android .... dont waste your time on symbian its dead android its the futureYes, you are right! :) Android is the future!! :) NO OS'es can beat Android, the biggest OS in the world.
I got a C7 last week and returning it today... issues with stability.. self-restart.. hanging.. etc...
Astound has the same specs of the C7 thus I imagine is just a US rebranding.
hueex not interested...this phone still use symbian,feel boring to hear this 'symbian symbian symbian' like an old phone covered with new style
if nokia still doesn't make a change,i bet nokia will be no longer exist
I really don't get the hate for Nokia on this website at all. I mean everytime I go into a Nokia discussion all I see is HATE HATE HATE from the Android trolls. Really?? Android?? That's like the most overrated OS ever. Yeah the UI looks pretty but the battery life sucks....And people talk about Nokia needs better software, which might be true. But people are forgetting is that without your hardware your software won't matter and vice versa
Who cares how pretty the UI looks on Android when your battery life is about to die out in hrs just to look cool. With a Nokia phone with Symbian 3, it can do anything that Android can do with 10x the battery life. I tried Android myself and all they have is a great web browser and a couple useless apps that aren't really important.
hey Nokia ASTOUND has OwnVoice
OwnVoice is one of the Ovi Maps' neater features - downloadable voices for your GPS so you'll never be bored
The Astound comes with an upgraded version of Ovi Maps with customizable voices, pre-loaded North American maps, and driving directions for 90 countries.
T-Mobile has supplemented Nokia's sluggish app store with T-Mobile's own easier to use app store, which spotlights big names that Americans would know
hey this is the picture of nokia astound with swype preinstalled
I am excited about the Qik video calling. I hope we can get ahold of the sis file or Qik becomes available in the Ovi Store.
Nokia astound includes:
- conference calling
- wifi and mobile calling
- visual voicemail
- portrait qwerty
- new browser aka browser 7.2
- split screen works
- better transitions
HEY gsmarena this has 1.3 mp videocall camera not VGA! and also comes with preinstalled Swype okay!
here's the link
Just got the C7 version and must say that Symbian owns fragmented androids behind. I went from frustration (had a samsung android)to bliss. It just works! Battery life is much better and I don't have to DL apps for every little function I need. Also... Free Maps! Go Nokia!
