[deleted post]Since you're the expert on the almighty brand's products, why this company constantly releasing so called "new" models, where the targeted consumers cannot tell / care the differences between the old and the new models?
Do you really think these consumers really care the differences between 1100/1200/12xx/1600/16xx etc...? If not, why keep releasing new models? So the unsold old models (and the manuals, chargers, etc...) can be sent to landfills in 3rd world countries to "create jobs" there?
What a company!

2. And good point. I find senseless to release this "new" devices when they specs are almost the same as phones released one or two years ago. Maybe the only difference is that now they released a slider one. :/
Anyway, I wouldn't call Nokia the almighty anymore.

- Why whenever the almighty brand releases such low end phones, they get reported / the publicity here? How about other brands? I'm sure other brands have been releasing a bunch of low end phones from time to time as well, why don't they get reported here?
- Why the almighty brand keeps on releasing so called "new models" when users of such low end phones probably don't know / care the differences between a 1100/1600/1616 etc...?

Well, that's what I understand about your logic.
As I said. Not all the world wants a smartphone. Many people just need phones for their basic features.
Also I'll put a nick myself, don't want to hide behind Anonymous like many fanboys here.

Not all the world wants an iPhone or an HTC.
Poor nokia,other company like samsung,htc,sonyericsson,apple,lg,toshiba they are all going forward,but nokia is going backward.poor nokia poor
Instead of buying one of those small usb mp3 players for just a little more you can pretty much get a cell with mircoSDHC support and basic cam.
its a nice move for nokia to have these low end mobiles it is affordable but very useful when it comes to mobile communication which is the purpose why we have 2g then 3g and so on and to connecting people around the globe without spending too much,we all know that majority of the people cannot afford to buy those high end mobiles
good move nokia .. after i buy 5800 or another phone in the Q1 of 2010 i was looking for a cheap phone ... i wil just relax and gosh if it had camera and bluetooth and mp3 it would beat iphone haha
I think the phone kinda sucks... there are already nokia s at this price..they shudda put extra features
I take back the pics/vid part. But really, buying a smartphone for call and text only is blasphemy.
Anyone who uses their high-end phones for texting, calling and taking pics/vids ONLY ought to have these phones smacked into their heads.
