I am sure there is no stopping to continuous improvements, next time be patient or trade in your E61 for E71...
It's happening in Malaysia market now... Try it, you'll love it.
blq, 02 Oct 2008symbian? or no-OS?
good advice to nokia: make WM phones, or die in 2010-12.
ya i agree with the rest, why WM? they are totally different platform to capture different level of users. One question to you, try answer before u support whatever OS u like. Can you export and save your sms in your pc like Symbian phones? ;)
WM is just for amateur who's always looking into playing media files, Symbians are for pro ok?

Second of all, this is a mid range device and not high end, so no need to get stressed and all bitchy about it.
Third of all, I believe the N95 was one of the first few 5MP handsets in the European and American markets, so g and do your research before you blast the number 1 phone company in the world you whinging pessimst American (even if you aren't, you sound like one of those god damned annoying American people) fanboy.
Looks like the google phone called G1 is going to be much batter then the nokia by Htc by the looks of things everyone well be looking on buying a faster and cheaper phones for $179 Tmobile in USA compear to Nokia wich well be much much more expansive wich well you be buying i know so fare am looking at the google phone
For the name it is XPressMusic, and nokia dont even give a in-ear headset. I dont like this.. not a big deal, lets hope to c Samsung INNOV i8510

The new XpressMusic has the same look-n-feel as new N series. What huge difference in functionality do you get in different N series? They pretty much have more or less same features with some added/updated goodies and different form factors. The story is same for all manufacturers. At least I expected them to give the touchscreen phone a new look. Is it too much to expect? And don't tell me that Omnia or F700 or any other samsung touchscreen phones looks like soul or anything else. They don't.
What a joke of Nokia’s first touch screen. SE, Samsung and LG developed touch screens before 5 years. Likewise Nokia take another 5 years to develop an 8MP cam phone. Only Nokia fans are surprised with first touch screen.
3.15 camera phone with touchscreen..... This is a real joke.
My advice - NEVER BUY THE FIRST GENERATION NOKIA PHONE -as I have bought a e-61 ... their first black berry competitor and how I curse....
Radation at crazy levels
What is worse while Nokia launched the e-71 (average phone but finger print magnet) the are planning the e-72 and 75. I am sure far better models will come from Apple , Samsung , LG , Blackberry .... wait and you will be rewarded

They all have brushed metal finish. Ya nokia stuck to a design. The same curve and glossy plastic..that's the reason why I posted. LG Samsung's touch screen phones doesn't look like their normal phones. They carry a different design. Whereas Nokia's look all same as n-series. That was my point. Are they too afaird that people might call it a copy from other brands? May be!!!!!

Samsung and LG....do they even have a series? the phone are just randomly named KC, KU and the soul seires is the most random with no relations to each model and in design this is the first time nokia stuck to a Design, the N81 design otherwise most nokias are different but every SE and Samsung Look the same
Wow looking at the videos it actually seems like a very slow device... not liking it
Same old design without keypad and a large screen. I wonder what those designers are doing at nokia. A full touchscreen device with same XpressMusic series and design makes me feel Nokia is too afraid to come up with a new series and design. Good luck to people who will buy it, but I have strong doubt about the functionality. It will take Nokia another year or so to fine-tune it IMO.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2008this is not the 1st touch screen phone by nokia
