so...unless , in time, the battery gets old and tired, and you realy have to replace it...there is no actual reason to open the phone.

speaker is either tha small, long hole/cut beneath the camera sensor ...OR on the bottom/upper part of the camera...where the "camera part" seems to come out of the phone

Probably the biggest fool on earth is one who expects symbian^3 to be a hit and lots of applications.

because. Nokia knows that they are not going to support symbian^3 because symbian^4 is on its way and symbian^3 will not exist for more than half a year. Please correct me if I am wrong

Don't think there are stereo speakers. Can only see one small down on the left side. Unfortunately Nokia speakers are usually very small and have very low sound volume.
Still a nice phone, but android would have been soooo much better than the prehistoric S60.

Although not mentioned and some unconfirmed opinion says it does not have stereo speakers but I think it will have stereo speakers as its quite high on audio specs with Dolby Digital and SRS surround etc. This is entirely my guess though. May be the speakers are hidden somewhere (like 5800) and is not visible in pics. Lets hope for the best.

Wow! Nokia really pulled a rabbit out of the hat this time.

But as with any magic trick you might want to step back and look at the big picture. The Symbian^3 OS on this phone is going to be the shortest lived OS Symbian has made - to be replaced in a matter of months by Symbian^4. In other words releasing this phone with Symbian^3 is a stop gap measure by Nokia to mesmerize their audience. And if Nokia had any business sense they will release the same phone again next year with the new OS - maybe call it N8^4. Now that's going to piss off all the early adopters especially when they realize that no one is interested to write applications for an OS with barely any supported handsets. Still the show has to go on...
