  • What's with all the chick colors?

    Give me black, make it solid so if I drop it I don't cry, give me a 64 gig version with an awesome camera. Not too much to ask for.

        @obamasucks2011 Not sure I would want to drop that bad boy...real worry it wont be working if I do...Great phone the Titan though...Nokia needs to offer more high end users a bigger screen...But apart from that, the 800 is stunning...

      @A Gray Plenty of men AND women have ruined good companies. Accolates should come when the new CEO makes the company relevant again. I don't think gender is an issue, <a href="http://www.ayimpex.com/FAQ/roll-forming.html">Partition Beam forming machine</a>and I would be just as underwhelmed if a man had stepped up to bat.

      @A Gray Agreed. Black is an universal color.

    US consumers won't even be able to get one until 2012 (no one evens knows when in 2012) and current Symbian and Meego phones are supported here officially either. Not much for us to worry about at this point !

    Nok is if not actually dead, very nearly dead.
    Nokia has missed the mark completely and has ended up offering a selection of "me too" phones.

    They should have very clearly targeted the lower end of the market with a sub $300 phone or better yet a sub $200 phone.

      @evilcart check the price of the 710...its sub e300 and no doubt they will offer other phones for sun e200

  • Nokia's Arrogance

    Looks like Nokia's arrogance and complacency finally got the better of them. Remember that Nokia N97 abortion that they tried to sell for $1200???? Lets see if Nokia tries this on again.

    Hardware looks the same as the N9. So now Nokia pays M$ tax to gain what? How is this an improvement?

      @Johan Safari

      You haven't used a WP7 phone have you? If you had the answer would be self-explanatory.
