It looks like Nokia might finally be pulling their heads out of their arses. Belle is what S^3 should have been all along - it took Accenture to bring it about, but better late than never. The WP7 high-end; S^3 midrange; S40/touch low-end vision is coming to fruition.
It remains to be seen if Nokia can regain the #1 position worldwide, but "only" having 3 systems in well-defined price/feature brackets is crucial. IMHO the 701/700/500/501 should be Nokia's ONLY Belle phones for the next 6-12 months; then release of new models, as Apple does. Same for their low-end and flagships: 2 or three models ONLY in each segment and support them well.
50.7 mm width? Nokia should consider ditching the (very) narrow dimension. Using qwerty keypad is a pain with such a slim profile. You wouldn't watch videos on your mobile most all the time right? Try 60.7 mm.! Maybe I'd consider it. =)
Waiting for the 9xx series is just frustrating. A flagship Symbian device is what I want to see.
Too late for Nokia. The Osbourne Effect cannot be stopped. I sold my Symbian and bought the Samsung Galaxy S2 and don't regret it at all. Fast and functional.
FlashLight -> Flash Lite
"It has very high pixel density of around 229 ppi and offers great contrast and very deep blacks"
2 years ago you guys were complaining about the pixel density of Nokia 5530 that is even higher... :P
@ first glance i thought it was n Xperia.. Jst wish cellphone manufacturers should b original n stick to their own designs
Nokia 700 is actually third Symbian Nokia whit 1ghz processor - first one was Nokia 500, then 700(or 600, 700 and 701).
This Os sure won't die, can't die, don't even know how to die. I was saving for its 2015 buried ceremony, get it... Buried!
battery is very small !

Mark, 13 Sep 2011Uhm... Why is S^3 showing on the screen, iso Belle?Yeah, just as i've thought...
Good preview, but your spec sheet is still missing things. 700 has 802.11 n, TV-out, active noise cancellation and USB OTG. Care to add them?
Uhm... Why is S^3 showing on the screen, iso Belle?
