Still the best phone i have ever had. I also have an X6 - great for music and a HTC legend ( android ). I much prefer the e71 and will be looking towards the e6 as a replacement.

You only lose depth of field... I suppose your miffed its only a 680mhz processor too, rather than a dual core 8ghz jobby, or there isnt the latest cuda gaphics engine...Or even it doesnt make your cuppa?? Seriousley people, what makes a good phone?? one that works, proficiently at everything it does. Yes, an iphone may take better pictures, between logging what your doing without your consent, the batteries exploding or because it just wont wake you up in the morning because its pretty darn crap.

At http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_...view-587.php you can read "HDMI-port". I guess GSM Arena have been typing a bit too fast?

much better now than before but i do think that nokia should leave behind symbian . Symbian software nowadays its completely outdated and specially does not combine with touchscreen phones.Nokia used to be my favorite brand but nowadays looks unatrative.I really hope that nokia returns to they used to be in the past.

P.S. Seems that you are one of NOKIA fans, that's mean your view is biased and discussion with you is meaningless.

Now put the N8 camera on this phone, and I might be interested. There's just no replacement for a real keyboard.

Looks good but too late to save Symbian. Also, kinda strange that with a TOuchscreen, why is there a need for the D Navigation keypad? WHy not remove tha navigation keypad and enlarge the Touchscreen size like what they did with the C6-01? Specs are good for a messenger but by now, hardware should already be upgraded to be more powerful.

Lets not lie to ourselves, nokia is just not gettin it right. Starting for their crapy s40 (even up to s40v6, crappy!) to their s60, which has been proved by the arrival of better OSs to b crapy also. (the sharp update from ^3 to anna is a testimony) so on my opinion nokia is just not sensitive to the needs of their average customers (eg their refusal to add multi taskin to their s40 phones, like SE). I need not use this phone for me to know that its still d same old fancy looking crap. About ovi store, a look at other app stores will show u that ovi store is also an extension of nokia's "crapy" tendencies.

I really stuggle to understand why people buy these phones when they could buy a BlackBerry. BlackBerrys have all of the core features of this phone (I say core because people don't buy phones like this for the camera for example) but are much more usable and give a much better user exerience. As a communication/email device with a great keyboard, BlackBerry is light years ahead of the competition.

Also we all know that Windows XP requires less resources of CPU and RAM than Windows 7, but that doesn't mean that Windows XP is better than Windows 7. The same is with Symbian and Android OS.

Nokia deserves to get punched in the balls once again. Finally they release a display that is any good and then they put it in a business messaging phone where there really is no need for that type of screen. They keep releasing "flagship" models with a horrible screen and a craptastic UI. They don't give a shit about the opinions and wishes of their customers.

> In reply to Nagol @ 2011-04-14 23:26 from k7PV - click to readI think it's more likely that Nokia can't get contracts with faster processors to pick up Android. I'm pretty sure the engineers in Nokia knows too that 600 MHz isn't enough for lag free user experience even if the OS is highly optimized.

They did invest quite a bit on Symbian, Maemo, and Meego, but it's only my guess...
