Everything about this phone looks fine, but NOKIA seems to be taking a lot of things for granted. If it wants to stay in the Cellphone race, it cannot ignore what the competition is offering. This handset desperately needs to add the following:
01)At least a 1Ghz SnapDragon processor.
02)Autofocus for the Camera with a Xenon Flash.
03)A 1800 mAh Li-Po battery. Ok if that is asking too much, at least a decent 1500 mAh Li-Po, instead of Li-Ion. You need that juice.
04) Ok this handset has enough memory of it's own, but would providing a micro-SD card slot been asking for too much?
05) Would have preferred Android Gingerbread, but if you can give the above, maybe we can let this pass.
I will buy this handset at any price you say, but give me the above.
The NOKIA attitude has made many die hard Nokia Loyalists shift over to SAMSUNG and HTC.
Are the NOKIA Big-Bosses listening?

However it'll probably be the HD2 which i would run android ontop of. I have the Galaxy S right now and quite frankly i have no real use for it. I don't play any games on my phone so the amazing gpu is of no use. I'd rather just have something that has a large screen can tether well and can text quickly with.
Alui, 24 Sep 2010Errr... SGS has 118g not 135. because galaxy made with plastic cover..so its less in weight..and its looks cheap
memory card slot and cpu are the main drawbacks. nokia shouldn't ignore these aspects if it want to stand its chance to win smartphones war.

Nokia that phone is great.
But just one question...
Why....why with no front camera?
You give us the querty keyboard...but
on the other hand You leave us with no secondary camera...
Nokia I love You, but can't understand that kind of things completely
Imagine dropping this baby without a case... ouch... I have a E75 and it's been dropped 4 times over the course of its life... each time heart stops for fear of the keyboard breaking off... think i'll go with the C7 this time...

error.11043, 26 Sep 2010ARM 11 680 MHz processor for symbian is enough, if the os was otherthings like Android there y... moreLol. and here we go again with the "its good enough" remark. Android runs fine on the 528MHz that the original G1 ran at. So why does HTC, Samsung, Motorola feel the need to put out a better product than whats "good enough?" Because they know how to do business. Nokia doesn't. Nokia relies on fanboys like you to back them up, but obviously that didn't work because they're bleeding money. Is Symbian^3 efficient enough to run on the low hardware nokia puts out? Possibly. Would it hurt for Nokia to put out a handset that has more than enough hardware to satisfy heavy users? No. Would they gain more customer loyalty if they did release a product with say 384 RAM at the very least? You bet they would. Most users probably wouldn't even notice the difference between processor change for nokia phones, because quite frankly theres not much you can do on a nokia. Gaming wise, Symbian has some of the worst titles, so theres really no need for a hummingbird equivalent. However what users probably hate is the lack of memory. The phone with a large screen is meant to be a heavy media device, meaning lots of web surfing, lots of videos watch, and reading email and such. I don't want to have insufficient memory errors pop up when im browsing an image heavy site like on the N95, E71, and such. LOL but hey, its your hard earned money, if you feel justified paying 500 Euros for an inferior device when compared to the competition just because it has a Nokia logo on it go for it. I swear... Nokia fanboyism is just as bad as Apple fanboyism.
its just another N97 in a different body and we all know how that turned out.

Just because it has a good camera doesn't make up for lack of ram, lack of processing power, battery capacity. 6.5 i feel is way too generous. Nokia loses when it comes to technology, sad because the N95 was considered one of the most powerful devices when it first came out. Nokia seems to be stuck in 2006 they seem to releasing hardware thats decent for 2006 and calling it high end mobile devices.
who the heck voted for this phone 6.5's? If these specs are that low then what should other phones be voted? And don't judge fixed focus when you don't have a clue what is it. This kind of focusing is a hell of technology and can take better pictures than any other type. Just read about it
