wat is the advantage of 3g?
im looking forward to buy this phone .
in terms of ripping out money to customers its got to be nokia no more. they make almost same phones and add or cut a couple of minor features and just a different design looks and thats it! another new phone to sell. nokia fans you point out ripping moneys to other phone companies, but look at what your nokia is doing, this is completely nothing new. not thinking, not improving, just creating! ripping moneys!
cheap looking model. i used to be such an avid nokia fan, but now after using samsung i realize i've been a fool. samsung star gives much more features with lower price.
and wat is this rubbish... just 4 hours talktime?? wat is nokia trying to prove??
my samsung star has 10 hours talktime... n its so much cooler... with widgets and 3 desktops n stuff...
mmmmmm this is a tasty bit of kit. my eye is weaping just looking at it.

How can you compare Audi A4 and Audi A8. They are both made by Audi, and are quet similar, BUT! They are on different market segments. Who can afford A8 never gonna buy A4 and vice versa. It's the same with this phone. For just 200 Euros it's not a high-end device, it's a mid-range phone and it has more features as usual mid-range phone. So don't blame the phone, if it doesn't fit your needs.
This phone is a direct LG Cookie and Samsung 5600 competitor. Nokia wins this fight with a huge margin!

this looks like nokia wants to make every body use a touch phone. They removed 3g , gps as most of people out there never used gps, and others even without access to 3g. I already thrown out 2 3G phones using for two years each even without accessing
why is is it people think every new fone should just automatically have more features than the last - there is a little thing called MARKETING for some of those less educated posters. They analyze, realize that some people don't need too many features and will be more likely to buy with only the features they need ,at a lower price. All these people saying no 3g and gps is a dissapointment - you already have the 5800!!! If for example car makers followed the same principle that some posters here advocate, there would only be luxury sedans and SUVs in the market. You have to think about the customers usage patters and budget, it no all about just loading up feature . Tis fone is gonna be a MASSIVE success - and i'n not even a Nokia fan.

its a lower model 5800 > 5530
lower model = cheaper
cheaper = lower specs
I'm glad there is no 3g - it drives up the price unnecessarily. I need wifi but not 3g, plus i don't use gps either - so this is perfect for me! 3g just makes the handset more expensive, and then burns a hole in your pocket with the insane data charges. It also drains battery, unless you switch it off, which then defeats the purpose of ever getting it in the first place. The other thing i could use it for is video calls, but 90% of my friends DON'T have video calling fones, and a video call isn't always convenient. For those complaining about no 3g, get a 5800 for crying out loud! can't expect every fone to be exactly the same. Ask yourself - how often do you actually use the feature. I personally use wifi for like 2 hours a day, at home and at work and at the coffee shop. 3g - i last used that 3 months ago. Moto ve66 has similar idea. Bring on wifi, forget 3g!
Great design,i must say..h0wever,this wud hav bin an amazing ph0ne if it has 3g or HSDPA.. whats wr0ng with n0kia?! What were dey thinking!? Here in the philippines, we hav all s0rts of browsing tricks for m0bile internet.. We badly need 3g for dat purp0se.. Id stil prefer n82 or 5800xm.. Damn nokia..!! GrRrRr..!

I was expecting capacitive touch screen, bigger screen and internal memory of 8-16 gb.
