Get ready for a big let down... "BATTERY" .. they always do like this..good phone..bad battery.
is that a touchpad instead of the navigation pad at the lower part of the front panel ?
Nice try Nokia. I really like this one, and the guys at Nokia don't want to throw everything on the phone coz they want to have something to add on the upgraded version next time, or the high-end version rather. Good competition though.
I hope is as fast and responsive as in the dark knight, anyone knows how much it will cost??
