Yess. I can buy this for my younger brother. It has split screen keyboard and very light weight with very affordable price. This the winner among cheap androids
AnonD-10525, 01 Aug 2011For everyone that is blasting away at some stuttering and lag... Android lags from time to tim... moreIt's true that Android lags. But if you look at some of the newer 1 GHz Android devices (eg: Xperia arc, Incredible S and etc.), they actually run a lot smoother than in that Nokia 500. This is probably only a prototype but still, even the N9 prototype ran better than that. Did you see how long it took to actually launch the camera?

People just love to brag, look at me, it haz a dual corez, i haz no idea what i needz it for, but i haz it n u dont haz it. Grow up.

Check it out running on N9, it's same on current Symbian line. As for Facebook, download fMobi and you'll see the difference. Much more intensive app and yet runs smooth as butter. Wrt was good on old devices like n95, n73 since you didn't have kinetic scrolling producing that lag.

I can easily and with no lag at all watch this 720p demo-video on GSMArena in my browser on my year old Galaxy S, can any of you Nokia-fans/employees do the same on any Nokia-phone?
From the list of Nokia announced phones, this doesn't seem like the first 1GHz phone from Nokia. (?)

Good phone, but how about the price? Preloaded programs list? It doesn't has Wifi?
[deleted post]And you will be dumb enough to buy android revision 30.46.73 which offers you an additional widget.
just to point out
the facebook app is not a part of the ui
its a installable app and there are many alternatives to it
so its not really a measurement
because its not optimized to use 1ghz
its strange for gsma to measure performance by a 3rd party app

This device is upgradeable to Belle and that is optimized for 1GHz.
this phone is good, better than sony ericsson's software. most of sony ericsson handset sucks there is no OS. and i think the material used of this phone is good better than SE low quality, easily scraped paint. what a shame SE.
DOWN sony ericsson..
why does every manufacturer first launch a 'black' model before launching a 'white' version.
Is producing white such a difficult task.

Even if you put a dual core that app is gonna run like shit. It's a wrt client, in other words, a widget running fullscreen. New app should be developed with the extra 300mhz headroom in mind.
