"Despite new competition, Symbian remains the most widely used smartphone platform in the world.

Additionally, the phone has a 4-inch AMOLED touchscreen, full slide-out keyboard and Nokia ClearBlack technology for improved outdoor visibility. Included are an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, Dolby Digital Plus surround sound via an HDMI video output, the ability to connect to a USB stick, Flash 10 video support, and a built-in FM radio tuner.

They do make good phones...they don't do anything else well, but the actual phone part of the phone tends to be very well made. I have to say, the idea of a truly open source mobile OS is like a sensual massage for my eardrums.

Nokia has the most phones currently in circulation, and blackberry has the most "smartphones" currently in circulation (they count all of them...even the old ones with B&W screens).

Yes, android & iPhone sales are quickly eating up smartphone market share...but no one has come along with anything so popular to dominate new sales in the "phone only" Nokia still does well.
