Been waiting for a phone like this for a very long time. I've tried android, it's OK, but in the end, I seriously distrust google, and really don't care for all the data they're collecting from me as an android user.
For me, this nokia has it all--- really solid form factor, great camera, and just enough apps for the 'casual' user-- letting me check email if I need, etc.
T-mobile even touts the tethering ability of the phone, unlike many other phones and cell companies.
While many say "symbian is dead" (which may be true in the end), I'm still going to enjoy this particular device for the next few years.
I wish T-Mo would have Android phones as feature rich as this is. I especially like the fact that this phone can support not only the T-Mo data frequencies but those of AT&T by including the 850 and 1900 WCDMA bands (after unlocking.) Perhaps the anno... (continues)

Point is, the info presented on the widgets is there, in the widget.... (continues)
Great post. There are a lot of Symbian haters. I think he just read somewhere that Symbian is outdated and complicated. Could it be on some Cnet article? When Nokia rolled out S60 5th edition it had some issues but they quickly and frequently upda... (continues)
Honestly, nokia used to be the best phone ever! Now they are so behind the times. I would have rather like to seen Anrdoid OS on a nokia phone. These phones have nice hardware but a crappy OS. Nokia, its time to step your game up!
This is what irks me with most (US or NAM) reviews of Symbian devices: everybody gets hung up on the "fluff" of the OS - fancy transitions, zooming in/out/through, basically all the stuff that eats up processor cycles for what amounts to entertainment... (continues)
