I like the design and dimensions, it reminds me of my xperia mini.
This phone's prime objective is to be cheap!
Nokia still has some prestige and influence left in third world class.
Not so long ago, those countries were unable to adopt spartphones with touchscreens and among their options, Nokia was considered as a premium one.
Before this feeling completely fades away, as they cant afford Lumias and Nokia's financials are still sinking.
They have invested this as a way, so they can monetarize their brand name, where it still holds some value.
Its a new OS noone will care making apps and games for and Nokia knows that. Ppl who cant afford 3G, will certaintly not be able to afford a game.
So the "apps" will only be what Nokia wishes.
Social, browser, music and camera should be enough for the casual third world country user.
The phone would also be able to perform calls and text mesages, thus covering all their basic needs!
And they will be proud that they are holding a cheap NOKIA and a not a cheap Chinese phone...
This is what this phone's role is, so CPU and RAM are irrelevant. For these dimensions, i agree it should have been a 3,3 incher, or it should have been at mini's dimensions, but it would break the price and stand by balance and Nokia is not interested to sell it in the west anyway.
They are just desperate to create some income, since they cant compete with other companies in the western hemisphere, with this line, they will focus on the parts of the world they can have a great market penetration. The costs will be minimal, cheap plastics, cheap chips, no fees for the OS and its apps,
for this price level the profit margain is limited anyway and everything counts, more RAM and resolution would make it impossible to create revenue.
AnonD-100898, 09 May 2013very nice phone,with a new platform and stylish look i will buy it.Easily please you own mobile before?, Samsung 4S quality or iphone 5. However will cost you, so there lies the problem.
2G???? soon is 4G,LTE oh my not hard to please India. Finnish have finished LOL. 3.0 is very sad specs, I do not like to squint imagine the text no thank you. Should of been 3G with 4.0 then may raise eyebrow goodbye.

Nokia you should come with at least 4.3 inch screen with the processors. No doubt quality is better than others..... But 3 inch touch screen has been gone......... it s really good if handset is at least 4.3inch screen
