Nokia...yawn

nokia keeps doing the same thing...releasing weird looking candy bar style phones. why cant they release a clamshell, slide or swivel in the US?

They promise this every year

The only good CDMA phines they have ever had were made in Korea by Panatech with Qualcomm chips. Do a search of old press releases and they are the same every year.
