I work for Orange Romania as sales manager. Every day I see sales numbers and statistics of mobiles saled by Orange stores and dealers all across Europe. Every day I talk with very big and important clients and I can say to you very sure that busy people, money makers, in permanent rush want reliable mobiles and very easy to use. I will tell you the most wanted mobiles of the moment and you’ll see that nobody cares in fact about cpu speed, os version, number of pixels. Nokia still remain the first option for 86% of our customers: c5-03,E6,7,71,72, N8, X7,6700,6303 still remain the most wanted mobiles in Europe. 50% of mobiles are mobiles up to 150 euro and in this segment Nokia is absolute king of sales. The most wanted function is “transfer” wich make clients dependent of Nokia as a drug. For the most customers is a big problem to transfer all sms,mms, notes,calendar and CONTACTS especially from their old to the new mobile without using a pc,immediately in the store in the first moments of use. And here Nokia is making the rules because can transfer ALL DATA between any models with minimum headache by Bluetooth.
Between the lines I can tell you Apple and Blackberry have also impressive sales, but not again yours beloved asian plastic toys.
Superb models from Sony Ericsson,Samsung,LG becomes dusty and forgotten on the shelves of our stores, even after big discounts. In sales reality almost all customers wants Nokia. For N9 upcoming model, Orange already have thousands of firm orders in standby. Practically in the first month after its launch (in September) nobody will be able to buy a N9 until november.All this is happening while Samsung Galaxy and Sony-Ericsson is dying slowly in the shelves with all their dual cores and androids.
So geeks,take a long and deep breath and relax and do not make a tragedy from every pixel or mhz, very intelligent and busy people don’t care about all that little technical details wich make the stupid subject of your childish argue.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2011why this new one is just 64cc while nokia n900 has 113cc !? And video should be 1080p@30f as... morelol wtf?
N900 has 113 cc? hahaha
What you mean "has"
"cc" mean cubic centimeter and it means the size!
N900 is bigger and uglier.
And N900 is very bad that it's big!
701 is slim and way nicer!
701 is almost twice smaller than n900, yet they got the same screen size!
why this new one is just 64cc while nokia n900 has 113cc !? And video should be 1080p@30f as in new devices samelike galaxy s2 . We need everything to be up to date.
though this device is great but we need high end device has at least 1gb dual core processor , 1gb ram , wvga reslution , auto focus camera and flash player 10.3 support

I am so tired of people going on Nokia bashing everytime Nokia Releases a phone they would just focus on one feature that is not there and start with their long complain list I dont understand if you dont want a nokia dont bother writing your long reviews on phones that are not yet launched you havent even seen or used the phone how can you say that it is good or bad ???? Every brand out there is unique and have something new to offer or different to offer stop complaining no phone is perfect every phone has it flaws no matter what you say EVEN the Hallowed (so called ) Iphone 4 and SGS 2
nokia is the first company to add flash player 9.4 to nokia n900 , nokia why you stoped providing flash player 10.3 to your new devices for rich internet experience!?
check the specifications of newly launched nokia phones.front cam is available only in c5-5mp and 701.where c5-5mp is lesser than half the price of 701.no other phones in between range support video call.should we depend upon c5-5mp for video calling or spend so much ?
