In my honest opinion, NOKIA is the #1 mobile manufacturer not because they create/invent/produce the most innovative phones to date, but rather they currently hold the widest selection of phones for different people.
Every individual has their own needs when it comes to phones, whether it be the features or the budget. Nokia flags a wider range of choices for various walks of life.. they have the E-Series(for the business oriented), the N-Series(for people looking for specific features), the Xpress Music series (for the music-oriented), they also have phones for sports enthusiast (5500 sport). Moreover, depending on the consumers budget, they have a phone for every price range.
From reading the comments here, i noticed that some people are nagging about the features of the phones. The problem is people are always seeking for the ultimate phone: looking for 8mp's, wifi, and such.. but let me point out that not all individuals need those around. Some use their phone for voice and sms only. Innov8, Omnia HD, are good phones no doubt.. but they belong to the high-ends when it comes to price and features. It is safe to say that you get the features you want for what you pay for.
If you like omnia,innov8, or iphone then go buy it.. why not? as long as you can afford it and its features satisfy you. These set of phones from nokia were designed for a specific market segment, and when you're not a part of it, there is no need to spout non-sense remarks.
It is pathetic to compare these phones to the high-end phones out there. If they are of the same price range, then you're free to criticize, but they aren't, right?
Nokia can produce the best phone if they want to, like combining all the flagship features they have in their sleeves into one mobile monster, but they chose not to. why? because of Marketing Strategy. Nokia knows that their low-end to mid-end phones produce for income than their high-end ones. The fact is not everyone can afford the high-ends, that's why their focusing more on low to mid-end ones.
As a conclusion, if you have the money then go buy the high-ends regardless of the brand and be happy with it. Its non-sense to compare the high-ends to mid or low-ends because they're not of the same price range.
Hope that clears out all the fuss.
XD motorola got soooo many fans help motorola said grouper same like Razr very surprising, when motorola got so many fans again
well done nokia.well done hand phone.superb innovation.with 2.4 inch and 2 mega pixels camera.welcome back in past technology.

Well at least it is a good start for AT&T to slowly convert its os support to symbian since they last announce it.
HAHAHA even my pathetic nokia 6220 classic is much better than these phones.
I dont even consider these as nokia phones.
i'm so curious to nokia mako..where's the specification??please gsmarena be hurry to clarify that..
Ughhhh...very very ugly to say the least...what is wrong with nokia.. tha last one seems to be a very very cheap looking copy of the moto razr..others are equally tacky looking...
Zzzz, 25 May 2009Wow, welcome back to 5 years ago. When Samsung and LG are making terrific 8 mpx phones with bi... moreIs not all about Megapixels...
Btw... Nokia is one of the first manufacturers using wide angle lenses (28mm N86) ...
That is "nicer" than some megapixels
Its good to see that nokia are covering all phones for people with diferent need!!!!!
doesnt really look good.. nokiab etter start working on those adroid phones.. i hear they are all the rage these days.. looking forward for the google phone to trump down the iphone @_@
me dont really likes apple.. a company built on hype.. well no offense to apple-lovers there, but it's just me okies @_@
nokias been producing great fones but having 2mp on the fone itself, even now is a no go.2mp are becoming obsulete now.they're way behind from the other competitors.nokia need to step it up.
It's no surprise the US are getting these "first".
They are basic phones for a basic telephone network.
They will not see the light of day in Europe because, as some have already said, phones like these are now considered "entry level" and are basically 2 years out of date, especailly as the European cellular network is so much more advanced compared to the US.
Probably Nokia just "testing the market" over there with some low cost phones to see if rolling out the high spec stuff will be worth the investment...
