With this price they are giving me a choice of either buy this phone, an iPhone, or an android.
Nokia should really be competitive with pricing.
Oh my @ the price! What were they thinking?! I guess they want to make customers buy the N8 instead of this... For now, I think I will be happy with my E72 :(
There was an article these days on gsmarena about the R&D spending at Nokia and if you look at the cost for Symbian R&D it might explain a few things.
A friend also told me once that Nokia doesn't have their own IT but pay HP to do it for them or something like that.
Add to that the fact that Nokia doesn't produce its own anything ( unlike Samsung for instance that make screens , CPUs , memory ).
High development costs + higher components prices = expensive phones.
I like Nokia but they should take some drastic cost cutting measures and do some restructuring or they will fail.
Angad, 07 Feb 2011Isnt this a little over the top ? I mean in terms of price..Yes off cource...i was thinking that i would buy it because i chose galaxy s instead of n8 but this is so high...:(
To expensive this phone for wot it is, the N97mini is still better choice and cheaper!
This phone is mostly metallic body, but in both end sides is plastic, and in five days after you bay it, it may scratch the color, and will not be worth 50€ anymore just like N8!
deam, 600euros is a lot, considering the fact that symbian 3 isn't that good and it only has a 680mhz cpu!? The hardware looks great, great keyboard, great screen, 16gig internal memory, but that price is so overrated!!!
680 MHz processor and 256 MB RAM...
Cool NOKIA, you ''impressed'' me once again...
jaye, 07 Feb 2011it doesnt play dvix formats. why nokia....why??????You are wrong...you just need an app if it cant play them...my n8 can but
Its a joke to sell this for 600EUR, considering one can pick up android and win7 qwerty phones for a lower price which are equally, if not better spec'ed
a bit over expensive with such specification, further more run symbian^3.
Smybian^3 in my n8 already hang many times >.
This is too expensive for its specs!! this is BS!
THIS for selling for fanboys then one month later price goes to 499-580
jaye, 07 Feb 2011it doesnt play dvix formats. why nokia....why??????it does play divx, mp4, mkv,flv etc... including 720p videos
600 Euro for smartphone with Android or WinMo - OK... But with Nokia's OS - hahahhahahahah ... This is a joke ...
