not sure who they are expecting to buy this? Those spec seem like a £100 phone at most. They need to launch a proper flagship to get people back and go from there.
Nokia become a "brand" company sad, every company can make nokia nowdays :(
I was expecting borderless display, newest flagship arm chip like S835, 40MP camera, thin industrial body design
Why Nokia why even blackberry still produce cool device like priv and concept mercury
theres snapdragon 210 available why waste on 425? nokia could save 1 more dollar with this idea!!! what a shitty way to enter into business again, its like they could make fortune out of it, saving few bucks and selling cheap processors for more price
if their phone comes with real feature no gimmicks then real competiton starts again.

What I expect from new Nokia phones:
1. GREAT camera: at least on par with S7 and 7S.
2. Great build quality: not camera humps like 950's or 1020. Must be sleek and great looking, like 920 was in the past for its time. Ceramic buttons, AMOLED screen etc.
3. Stable and clean UI and optimized Android. Not to lagg after few months of use. Z launcher isn't that. They must make the balance between customization and smooth performance. I can sacrifice some customization in Android in relation for optimized performance and stability. Hence, it will be still Android: a virtual machine OS against stable iOS based on BSD.
This 3 points are not all, but the base, just the base if NOKIA want to enter in mobile market again.
If they spend time to produce low, mid devices - they will lost as before. Why Apple is so successful? One of the reason is that they do not spend resources to produce cheap devices and then to spend other resources to support them. They have longest support cause had few devices. And that win loyal customers. Not like Sammy and other nameless OEM's.
Using nokia 6233 still, no phone till date have dual speaker output like this, always carry this with my xiaomi for external speakers output.
Nokia was always more expensive just have to see if they will be tough like old nokia. But then mobile soc improve so fast, do you really want it to last 3-4 years? xP
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2017white phone is ugly.Think you are not a fan of Nokia.
Nokia lead the market by creating colour phones and the white E-series was a boom then.
After reading some of the comments here I think Nokia should register the business as a charity organization and give the phones for free.
Soc 425 with a 720p screen and a 2GB RAM are not that great specs to come back into a market coz all these things will be costly as NOKIA (as a name) is making a coming back.
If they get the price right only then NOKIA will succeed.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2017Xiaomi Redmi 4 has similar specs and costs $105. How much will HMD charge for the Nokia label?I agree that based on spec the price should be similar.. But chipset is not the only component in the phone.. The screen the camera the battery the body and most important build quality.. All of this can increase the final cost and not just the Nokia brand
Lit, 07 Jan 2017Yes the E series were the aimed at the business class - I see your point in how now it is the ... moreI think the E1 is nothing related with the past E-series, just like N1 is unrelated to N-series
