no wonder nokia has one of the most crowded booth! they had an excellent line up, which caters to different segments of the market! like 3250, N91 for music lovers, e-series for a businessman, n-series for 3G and excellent multimedia features/performance, mid end flip phones and a lot more! there's no doubt nokia is still the no. 1 handset maker for quite some time now, which has (if im not mistakin' about 30% of overall cellphone market). plus the introduction of new technology like UMA! so far nokia N80 is still the most feature rich, all in one, performance wise plus great price and feature set ratio found on today's handset offerings! :)

Nokia its really losing ground to the competition... sony ericsson and samsung are going to launch great phones, in stylish and specifications they are great. from nokia i did not get amazed by any phone, altough the N92 look pretty well equiped. i work in one in a multinacional phone store, and i can afirm that nokia its really losing ground...

An overall fantastic display of new technology I must admit. I really enjoyed the development from Toshiba and Sharp and the new NOKIA displays too but we all get excited too quickly as it seems that most manufacturers take far too long to get them on the market. Even when they are released its the networks that have to approve them for compatibility. Its a fustrating process for the consumers. It sort of reminds me of that Napster strip tease advert, if you have seen it you will know what I mean. But the presentation of the 3GSM Congress by GSM ARENA was superb, keep it up!
