preview: - 115'5x59x10'5 - 84cc - 133g
i need to say the correct
You're kidding right. Symbian might be tested but I don't know of any other OS that hangs as much as Symbian. Even on their latest phones like the E6 there are regular hang-ups.
if nokia is just going to use the design of c7 and add some new features,the least it could do was increase the screen size to 4".

I got this phone already. and i am not pretty much happy with the performance of the phone. Bluetooth doesn't work, have trouble in phonebook. get hang. only one good thing about this phone is, camera is the best.
[deleted post]well fact is, samsung is jumping on to meego.. because android has lots of bugs. symbian, well it's tried and tested. so no contest.
Arome, 05 Sep 2011Thanks Dude, for the info. U have boosted my confidence and keeping the hope alive. Nokia rules!No problem bro.
the success of this mobile greatly depends on the pricing of this set if its priced too high then no one can save nokia from its downfall and if it provides value for money like samsung is doing it will help nokia to a great extent, still nokia needs to greatly improve its portfolio in qwerty keypad segmant which is lacking behind. launch of nokia e6 model didn't help them coz it was very highly priced as compared to the features it is providing which is not the value for money hence nokia has to see downfall.
AnonD-15354, 04 Sep 2011Okay, so you say that Nokia phones are durable and that is why you like them. Durability is a ... moreSo? 1) The end user dont really care what OS it's running on. Many dont bother about what's the latest & meanest. In my country, there are those who only now buying C3, C5-02,E71.
The newly announced models are geared towards non western market. For one, Nokia is releasing the 700, a smaller version when some other brands are going for 4.5 inch, 5 inch, 5.3 inch. You westerners really have large fingers, lol.
2) What for take up Android? Then even harder to differentiate themselves from others, soooo many brands using Android. I do marketing(not handphone of course), I wouldnt recommend it if my company comes out with same type/variant as others. Do something different - Nokia decided to go with WP7. They didnt go for Meego, now Samsung wants have a go at it.
3) That's marketing view. End user view- Android drains battery faster than Symbian. That's a problem if one dont work in the office, constantly on the move & dont use car. Even those people in developed countries want a phone with good battery life.
WP7 battery life,etc,etc I dont know. We'll find out next year when Nokia comes out with one. Meego battery life, we'll find out in a few weeks time
AnonD-15354, 06 Sep 2011The bottom line is this. Nokia is not bothering to keep their phones current. For example, bac... moreAnd when did I say that I do not want change?
Mate, we are posting in a thread of a mid-range device. You still do expect Nokia's Symbian as a high-end? They now have WP7 considered as their High-End..
" The bad part is that people with similar opinions to yours are assiting them towards this fate."
Excuse me? How can you tell?
"You use words such as reliable and durable when describing the things that you are used to in order to mask the fact that you do not like change. "
You want change? So do I..
Do you want this phone? Then why are you here?
"The question is, will Nokia be around when the change eventually happens?"
I don't care.. Do you?
If you don't like this product then go to other brands. Its business. It is the companies loss if a product is not worth its price.
Xdam, 05 Sep 2011Agree! Here in this site, lots of Geek-wannabe-tards complaining and crying about specs and OS... moreThe bottom line is this. Nokia is not bothering to keep their phones current. For example, back in the 1980's there were companies that did not think that the personal computer would ever catch on. They believed that everyone would still use their older machines instead because people were used to them, and those machines were reliable. Here we are today, and the personal computer is alive and thriving. However, those companies that thought the personal computer would not catch on are out of business. Nokia is that company which is trying to hold on to the old ways, believing that the new stuff will never catch on with the masses. They will believe this until they are out of business. The bad part is that people with similar opinions to yours are assiting them towards this fate. You find it easy to dismiss the opinions of people who want to see things continually improve. You use words such as reliable and durable when describing the things that you are used to in order to mask the fact that you do not like change. Change will come even though you do not want it to. The question is, will Nokia be around when the change eventually happens?
Waiting 4 Buying This Handset Nokia 701
With Wifi, Bluetooth,Unlimited Entries in Phone Book,
Supported Upto 32 GB Supported (8GB Storage), Dual Camera 8MP With LED Flash,FM Tansmitter Superb Handset
Waiting 4 It !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The new belle os is great but its a copy of android....its got the drop down notification panel just as android..the widget menu style is also similar to android...but atleast its got a 1 ghz processor(first on nokia) which is amazing and the new NFC(near field communication) feature is mind blowing...this is the best touchscreen phone from nokia...
The specs look pretty good for the price. I actually think it will do pretty well against similar priced android handsets.
The camera is a little disappointing, but then I'm coming from an N8 so it's to be expected. Double the ram and better gpu claw it back for me though, should be snappy.
