So... Who ACTUALLY makes this one? Confused I played with one and it definitely feels cheap. Please tell me that Nokia hasn't sold themselves to KTFT or whoever the heck it was in Korea to manufacture their other recent CDMA nightmares. The 7705 is, after all, coming out right on the heels of the 6205 and 2605, both of which were horrible phones both in quality and reliability.

I think it's directly Nokia. After they settled with Qualcomm, I think they could manufacture their own.

This is much more of a Nokia than some past "Nokia" CDMA models.

Phones like the 6305i, 6215i, and 6315i were other companies' phones that Nokia did little more than slap a logo onto.

However, a few years ago, Nokia invested in a new design center in San Diego that actually does design their own models just for the US. Recent models in the past couple of years have actually been designed by Nokia.

Now, does it come out of a Nokia-owned factory? Probably not, but iPhones and MacBooks don't come out of an Apple factory, either. Everybody outsources actual manufacturing these days. The important thing is who does the design and engineering, and in this case that's Nokia.
