Specs look solid, but the UI seems boring and under eqipped. I actually mistook it for N8! I hope they won't overprice it.. Btw the music in the video sucks! esp. the last 10 or so seconds! disgusting!

Ah no one really even cares for this phone though, but Nokia always bundle quality with their mobiles. What I don't understand is why did they bother with MeeGo and Windows P7 - they should've just jumped on the Android bandwagon which would've saved them so much money in development/time/negotiation so they could offer really sexy specs on their phones that blow away all the other android competition.

The thing I miss about my N95 - the Carl Zeiss lens and the superior picture quality. My HTC Desire just doesn't seem to have that same ability!

.....and no one cared.

This was a complete waste of time. Nokia has already announced that they're going completely Windows on all future phones. That's like HTC releasing an Android v1.5 phone.
