In serbia it costs 270 euros,and 5800 is 330 euros,in 6 months time when i am going to buy new phone i can bet that their price will be the same.
But SE is in my heart and its a phone built for multimedia and basic conectivity,thats all i need and all that any teenager need.
Biggest flaw is that it doesent support instant mesagging,which is present on my k610i.
* Smallish screen - normal screen size. You're watching movies on mobile or what?
* Images suffer excessive sharpening and purple fringing - yes
* Poor video recording capabilities - not so bad as in previous models.
* No lens cover - who cares?
* No office document viewer - so what? It'a phone not smartphone.
* Shaky battery cover - yes very annoying. But can be fixed easily.
* Walkman button and Shake control implementation not user friendly - U use shake control a lot?

i hate nokia but it would prefer 5800 xp or Motorola ROKR E8 or ZN5(which is a far far better fone than thisone).
have been using this phone quite long time already, and can say that build quality is excellent, cannot see anything wrong with battery cover. but yea, would like to have built in GPS, as in some newer W series models. maybe SE will reveal somethin like that in the upcoming GSM converence.
Wait a minute. It has no accelerometer, no touch screen, no WiFi, no GPS, no 8MP camera or optical zoom and only 8 gigs of memory and SE have the nerve to charge 400 dollars?
I was correct in my assumption that SE is headed by a bunch of zombies.

The demand for converged mobile devices is accelerating. By 2010 we expect four billion people to have joined the global mobile conversation. For many of these people, their mobile will be their first Internet experience, not just their first camera, music player or phone.
Open software is the basic building block for delivering this future.
With this in mind, industry leaders are coming together to establish Symbian Foundation, to bring to life a shared vision and to create the most proven, open and complete mobile software platform - available for free. To achieve this, the foundation will unify Symbian, S60, UIQ and MOAP(S) software to create an unparalleled open software platform for converged mobile devices, enabling the whole mobile ecosystem to accelerate innovation.
The intent to form the Symbian Foundation was announced on June 24, 2008 drawing strong industry support and more endorsing organizations have been subsequently announced. The foundation is expected to start operating during the first half of 2009. Membership of the foundation will be open to all organizations, for a low annual membership fee of US $1,500.
The Symbian Foundation platform will be available to members under a royalty-free license from this non-profit foundation. The Symbian Foundation will provide, manage and unify the platform for its members. Also, it will commit to moving the platform to open source during the next two years, with the intent to use the Eclipse Public License. This will make the platform code available to all for free, bringing additional innovation to the platform and engaging even a broader community in future developments.
The platform will be free and open to develop on from the start whether you are enthusiast, web designer, professional developer or service provider. To develop on the platform you will not need to be a member of the foundation. The Symbian Foundation’s developer program will provide a single point of access for developer support; providing a wide offering of tools and resources.
