This phone is about as pointless as pairing Windows95 with Core i7 or something.
I quite like the touch'n'type style phones. However nokia's recent couple of attempts seemed to miss the mark a bit.
If they can combine these specs with a decent capacitive screen, good quality camera, wifi, gps and keep it all at a nice cheap price then it should be a great phone.
1ghz s40 device? Whats wrong with you nokia?
i cannot understand
"read sms has never been so fast"
COME ON! definitely is a joke
Hey all there is no sch a processor n an cheap s40 phone
jst look at its shape
does it look lyk to have 1 GHZ processor with 512 RAM?
The real fast process xperience have alwayz gvn by Samsung android phones
all the nokia ranging in an specific Os are same the dfrnce z jst with their display and camera result
is thz all abt a phone?
I hv used from 5233 to N97 ranging in Os 9.4(touch screens) and also thos phones ranging in Os 9.3 all have da same procesing web browsing,ear phone sound expect camera and display
what da damn is thz?
come on nokia, what was on ur mind when making this phone ?
S40 and 1GHZ processor will not be the right match , even in hell
I can understand that S40 will get some upgrades and that a 1GHz feature phone with touchscreen would be nice (not all people want/ know to use smartphones) but this is just stupid ... I mean what real use will this have ? 720p or 1080p videos recording/playing on an phone with 2.4" screen ? Better internet experience on small screen with small resolution (240x320) ... same for games ...
And these new names are just stupid...
For example I don't think that NOKIA "forgot how to make a good phones", I think that NOKIA is just surviving a crysis.
blackmarvel, 19 Jul 2011whahahahahahahhahaha whahahahaha OMG.. they lost their minds at Nokia..
They put a SUB-1Ghz... moreNokia forgot how to make a good phone? What do you mean by good phone? One that does what you need/want it to without crashing? Without hanging or lagging? Do you mean a phone that is made of very good material that makes the phone feel solid and substantial? A phone that has the most amazing camera on any phone?
No, Nokia knows how to make a good phone. Just because a phone is running Android doesn't make it a "good phone". It just means its running Android. Android is far from the perfection that Android fanboys claim it is. Android fanboys are the worst on here... always belittling anyone using anything that is NOT an Android device. Sorry but the world does not revolve around Android.
snndroid, 19 Jul 2011Trollolololol. You just can't use and hate Android, so the Android itself know you're not d... morePhones don't "commit suicide", they don't know who their owners are. They are hardware, nothing more. I've known many people that complain about their laggy Android phones with apps crashing and force closing all the time. Never experienced that on any iOS device I've owned. And my Nokia N8, while running on slower hardware, lags far far less than the Galaxy S I had. It was by far the worst phone experience, given my expectations of the device. You can sit there and insult me acting as if the phone somehow "committed suicide" but its nothing more than Fandroid propaganda with no substance to back it up. Android is a resource hog... no wonder all Android phones have HORRIBLE battery life!!! Symbian is a lighter OS that gives you much longer battery life on whatever phone its running on. Had a Sony Ericsson Vivaz running s60 and it too had great battery life. All Android phones need recharging before most of the day is out - with very little heavy usage.
ashh, 19 Jul 2011FAKE. This is obviosly FAKE and i cant believe GSMARENA fell for thisthis is not fake this is actually gona be released in Asia
Jason, 19 Jul 2011What is the point of combiniing S40 with a 1Ghz processor?it means that nokia is going to make s40 smartphones on qt, They're late but Nokia will definitely have the last laugh.
take a look,it says A-GPS included
Nokia, bigger screen ( 2,8 or 3 inches ? ) and resolution + front facing qwerty keyboard ( small one like the lg optimus pro ) and i'm done, do it ! For a small price ! GOOOOOOOOOOO
MeeGo, AF, 3.2" screen and a front cam. LEAVE EVERYTHING ELSE AS IS. Call it C4-00 and I'll tell ya what Nokia that will get my money even in that form factor. Problem is right now I know no one in Espoo will have the balls to do that and kill S40 off (or kill the C3-01 for that matter). If Qt can work on Meego as well then why the hell not?
