I'd like to see an intuitive and hassle-free touch screen equivalent to a hardware keypad, but I imagine it'll be quite some time until then.
I personally believe the qVGA screen should remain a standard for the rest of Symbian S60's lifetime.
Nokia should base their next OS around a higher resolution display.
I think we're headed towards ultra-portable PCs with the ability to make calls, rather than a feature-packed phone.

Then QVGA screens - and the very form factor of phones like the E52 - will be as dated as the Startac!
I think it was relatively obvious even towards the end of the 90s that phones would eventually be getting hard drives and touch screens. Eventually phones would have large storage capacities (memory cards, not hard drives - th next development will be SSD's) and would do away with physical buttons.
I think the next step will be roll-out/foldable (OLED) screens and possibly even holographic displays, which will happen in unison with superior battery life.
The next big market will be lithium development, as the world pushes for green technologies now we have removed our economies from the base of oil, which was destroying the environment.
The financial meltdown was planned for this very reason. It was no coincidence.
With car manufacturers now spending billions on the development of 'clean' lithium battery technology as they restructure for a changing and environmentally aware world, this will surely help out the market for postable devices, which will have a direct impact on how far you can push the bracket with digital technology.
That is, advancements in technology are linked directly to the efficient supply of energy...
Does the 600MHz processor compensate at all for the lack of a 3D accelerator?

But I guess it's inevitable, they can't stick to qVGA forever... For now, however, I'm fine with qVGA on a 2.4" screen.

This isn't North Korea.
Devices like this have to pass stringent safety tests, with the manufacturer even more concerned about safety as they have shareholders and bottom lines to look after and don't really want to pay out millions in compensation or even more doing a product recall.
Li-Po probably used to be unstable, but I think times have changed a bit now and these batteries are now very safe and now used more and more in portable devices as they are superior (and lighter) compared to their Li-Ion alternatives.
Case in point is the Sony PS3 controller. Used by millions across the world now for several years. Regularly charged/discharged then hundreds of millions of times and how often have you heard of one exploding and/or causing even a minor injury to someone.
I think it's time to take that tin foil hat off...

It's funny, but true. At least here in the UK!

vla-do, 16 Aug 2009I didn't find option to disable sound of camera, so I think it's can't.I'm pretty sure it's a legal requirement for camera phones to have the fake shutter sound, in an attempt to stop people from perving on their unsuspecting victims.
I'm defintiely buying this phone.. but Lithium Polymer? For all I know Li-Poly batteries are very powerful but dangerous as well and needs special care due to it's explosive nature. used in RC's but on a celphone sounds like a minibomb in my pocket. (search utube and find lotsa videos of kids tryin to explode their li-poly bats. fun) ^_^

I'm looking for this phone here in my location in Alabang.. I already browse apparent malls around..
where did you find the unit? i'm really want to have one..
There's no protection for the microUSB slot. Can't this situation be a problem?

This will mean text and images are "smoothed" and not as jaggedy as there will be more pixels to anti-aliase (or smooth) the edges.
As I said, case in point is with Samsung and HTC - they produce screens which are physically the same size as Nokia, yet they manage to fit more pixels within the TFT/LED screen than Nokia, meaning better resolution and ultimately, better screen.

its interesting me too because nokia uses the resolution of 240x320 pixels since years and its getting old
so please tell me what u heace meant with ur description
It is a really good phone, I'm liking it more and more.
My only gripe is with the screen. Nokia produce poor displays and try to 'blind' people with marketing BS by claiming their screens contain more colours (16 million) than the competition (usually 65k).
This doesn't make them better. If you cram more pixels into a smaller space, the resolution increases, which is something Nokia is yet to do compared to competitors like Samsung and HTC. Also, there are only so many colours pixels can display at any one time, so 16 million colours are irrelevant for a scren so small.
The screen pixels of the E52 are quite large, so (especially) web browsing is not as great as it could be, as text and images look grainy/distorted and it washes out colours.
However, it is still very usable and certainly not worth overlooking for, unless you'd rather trade in small form factor and battery life for a touchscreen.

HERO & Anonymous, thanks 4 answering about E52 or 5800
-I didn't know that E52 is more stable so +1point for E52
-3.2" is great but I had a 1.9" sonyericson so 2.4" is ok for me
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2009yes there is video light Thank you very much! At last, my query has been answered. I've been finding answers for ages now and I can't seem to find a review stating that the E52 has a video light since the reviewers think the E52 doesn't need it because it's a business phone, but the truth is it bothers some of the users like me. So I thought that the last best way is to ask personally the current owners of this phone but nobody seemed to care answering my question, but that is just until now.
Thank you once again. I will definitely get this E52.
I know having video light isn't necessary seeing the business mindset of the device, but then again, if Nokia can include it, then why not.
