It's a shame they are dropping monochrome screens. They do the task much better than bottom-end colour displays.
My Nokia 1200 was a great summer phone. Nokia 1208 was not.

Great strategy by Nokia. The Nokia 301 and 105 are going to steal back a lot of shares from Samsung in developing markets.
Welcome back Nokia!
Way back in the early part of the 90's my first mobile was N73, and Nokia was top dog back then.
How times have changed with the new line up.
My personal choice is Nokia Lumia 510
I like it due to its advance features in a reasonable price. I think it is a proper budget smart phone.

Wongndeso, 27 Feb 2013When will Nokia make a tilt slide QWERTY keyboard phone on Lumia series? I really wanna buy a... morehey windows phone 8 is for touch not qwerty and btw qwerty is outdated today!!!!
iam least bothered about nokia. there is nothing to expect...it will go down in the history as the company who had tech, (pureview), hard ware(carl zeiss lens), software( windows 8) yet never launch device in time and failed in all aspect..
Samsung and apple use the little available and are successful..
nokia is a sleeping cat who thinks itself as roaring tiger.. but history will say it as dead snake..
please shut down fast rather than fooling us and leading for expectations..
i think htc have started to show nokia pattern.. says will launch ultra pixel end up in useless hardware..
2013 marks opening of two leaders samsung and apple..
leading way for ios and android thus dead path for windows and black berry...
to note :2013 new os( fire fox, tizen) are fighting for java place.. i think they never consider to fight ios/android.. they know that they are not so worthy for top place.. unlike windows and blackberry( they are making themselves jackass... )
windows made huge mistake of partner nokia... when they realized , in hurry made another huge mistake of entering hard ware(surface).. they lost respect with nokia and lost future with surface...
apple and android are no more emerging ..they are winners at/from 2013...
iam die hard fan of once lion now dead snake nokia...
AnonD-44163, 26 Feb 2013nokia very clever this time by not announcing a high end, it would have certainly killed 920's... moreThey have their own ecosysten mate, Lumia 920 is the flagship phone, 820 is the back up in middle up class, lumia 720 and 520 is a middle end class just like 620. More model more choice right? But I think Nokia just start their effort to reclaim their glory on smartphone industry. Their main rival, I think, is Samsung
When will Nokia make a tilt slide QWERTY keyboard phone on Lumia series? I really wanna buy a new nokia phone (my first windows phone) but only on QWERTY keyboard form like N97 or E7...
nokia very clever this time by not announcing a high end, it would have certainly killed 920's demand... Nice move by nokia
Oncom, 26 Feb 2013Totally wrong. In Germany unlock SGS3 is much more expensive than in Asia. If you on contract ... moreYup, agree.That's why I wonder why my Japanese boss said iPhone5 in Indonesia is expensive. He didn't calculate how much he must spend for 1 year contract fee in Japan.
good to see budget phones getting attention. those in the less developed countries need innovation too. gsm needs to Give more reviews of cheap smart n feature phones too objectively.
Lumia phones won multiple design awards as they have unique and nice designs. Samsung phones are the ugliest of them all and no innovation comes from their hardware. Lumia 920 is the most innovative phone currently. It has a Pureview camera, Optical Image Stabilization (floating lens), fastest LCD screen on mobile phone, 3 high amplitude microphones (HAAC), Clearblack display, a new type of high power/short pulse LED flash, wireless charging, and super sensitive touchscreen (works with gloves).
prasetyo, 25 Feb 2013speaking emerging markets. I just curious why they sold iPhone 5, galaxy 3, lumia 920 etc high... moreTotally wrong. In Germany unlock SGS3 is much more expensive than in Asia. If you on contract the initial cost maybe so little but at the end of contract you pay so much higher price in total.
