But WP7 (7.5 actually, Mango) is quite a good OS. The reason Android is so popular is because a) they had a head start and b) carriers weren't keen to promote it due to a higher cost of phones.

I wish so many ppl didn't think "Windows Phone" is the same "Windows Mobile" from 2004!!!

Seems such a shame to put NFC on a dead OS like Symbian.

You're kidding right? Mango is the most fluid mobile OS out there, with the best-looking UI I've seen on a phone.
Yes the live tiles need getting used to, but not everything has to be an icon in order to work.

It was the only smartphone company before arrival of iOS and Android. May be they are lagging behind by the sudden change in the market scenario, but I believe and so should everybody that LEGENDS never succumb to situations as they fightback to their glory someday.

Nokia pulled out 600 frm market and sent it back to the factory. Little tweaking, tune up and voila, WP7 MANGO Phone ready.
"LUMIA 600"

If only Nokia quit and change their major and start in making phone designs which what they are doing now... Most of their parts... I mean all of them come from Foxconn and printed on them Nokia

This is the second Nokia phone that got cancelled after the Nokia 7700 in 2004. Nokia 600 design is sooo simple and it is so boring!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if they loaded WP7 onto it and re-launched it, just like the 603 became the 710 (although the 603 wasn't cancelled).

What I think on killing this phone is related with ongoing patent fights..Nokia was worried on using some of Apple patents..

the disappointing sale of nokia 700 and 701 could be a major factor. There used to be excitement whenever a new phone from nokia is coming out but time has change and the disappointing sale of 700 and 701 may have contributed to nokia's decision to cancel this model.

Probably the price point for Nokia 600 contradicts with the price point offered by the most expensive asha range.

It would've got destroyed by Xperia Ray from Sony which is already a good seller
