Did I win the lottery? Because those phones are expensive.

While I do understand that, yes, there are people who want better phones with better specs... But at what cost? It would seem to me that many of the newest models are quite expensive. Your average Joe Schmo cant afford a $900 phone... All he can do is drool over it. I think the manufacturers are out of their minds... Its like "let see how high we can jack up prices & screw our average customer". $900 phones WHATEVER! Is this a new trend?
Last I checked, every manufacturer has a wide array of phones to entice every customer- including the high end, expensive phones, to the low end, entry level phones. If you can't afford this phone, maybe you should be looking at the 6230 or the 6620....

Agreed - $900 for these is about $300 too much, especially considering that there is not a built-in keyboard for comfortably using e-mail, IM, and web navigation. The featureset is very impressive though. One thing I'd like to see in a phone is AM r...

If these phones are 3G

How are they selling them in the US?

I'd be suprised if they make 2 versions of each, one for UMTS @ 2100Mhz (Europe) and another @ 1900Mhz (US).
If, you read Rich's Article, he said that Nokia plans to launch the N91(the 3G phone) in Europe and Asia, but they will bring that phone here as a Tri-Band phone, instead of the true 3G capability it has with the UMTS, or HSPDA. He put in the article ...

Nokia hasn't announced the specifics of how they will come to the U.S., only that they aim to make it happen.

Much of it depends on the timing. Because the N90 will come out fairly soon, it will probably be too early for Cingular's 3G network. Plus...

I think these phones are too rich for my blood:

These new Nokia phones might be getting people really hyped about there features and design, but check out their estimated launch times and Manufacturers Suggetted Retail Price(MSRP):

yea, i saw that link, and i think the price is pretty reasonable. i would get one. you pay for functionality though.
...
these prices are preliminary anyway, but on a 2yr contract the price will come down. I think i found my next phone in the n90 - that looks AWESOME. just can't wait

im not a fan

i don't feel nokia is capable of launching feature rich and looking rich phones.. they have the feature rich part down for the most part.. as for how there phones look.. they really IMO, look like they just started making cell phones.. they look like the same phones that have already been made countless times before.. in there features i feel as if there getting it done.. as for looks i feel as if well there 10 years behind everyone else.. i hope they pick up the pace soon. These phones are no different INO then any other phones they have made.. I hope nokia finds it's nich soon.. I would have thought they would have found it years ago..
just my 2 cents of course
u are way off brah

just my two cents
...
lets see some brands/models you consider good looking... a motorola flipper?
Obviosly you haven't been paying attention to all of the Nokia Phones that have been released recently. You say that Nokia does not have any "rich looking" phones. Have you seen models like the 7610, 7280, and 7270? How can you say that these phone...
(continues)
First of all it's "their" not,." Secondarily Nokia has 30% of the world market, I believe they have found their "niche." The world market dwarfs the domestic market in the states.
If you consider buying a decent digital camera and a decent cell pho...

Its about time!

Everytime there is a new article about Nokia, people always bitch about how they NEVER have bluetooth. Are you guys happy now? You can finally stop complaining about that one! Very Happy

(unless of course, you want to pick apart these phones too)
What?!? No built-in thought processor for solving life's problems?! When is Nokia going to learn!! They're going to lose market share cause of this! MARK MY WORDS! Laughing
