I don't you take the rubbish phone like LG compared with Nokia?

Its waste from Nokia. COmpanies are moving towards 8MP camera, superior trasmitter and data speed. I dont understand why Nokia is living in dream of success of N95. when N95 launched there was hardly any competition but now with Samsung comig with exciting new range along with LG, Iphone etc where these 2 models will stand?

Wake up NOkia, you guys are loosing market share quick and fast. wake up before its too late. Thanks

this is common sense.why rush into new technology when you can improve on the old have to know your past to know your future.other companies might have an 8mp camera phon,.but the at the same time they could be using old tech.

what you mean nokia's look alike.if you make something in series,should'nt they look alike.

what you people must understand is that nokia is not rushing into new techs,they are improving the present one.just like the dual led's.

I think the main thing that you HAVE to take notice of between Nokia VS other manufacturers handset launch is your not just buying the handset. you are becoming connected to the Nokia services. Who out there using a smart Nokia isn't using at least one of the Ovi services? If you don't adapt to the markets will fail. Look at music stores around the world, those who didn't adapt to the changing market have failed.

Sure Nokia could put out 'the perfect' be all of phones. Whats the point of this? The market has caught up the market is head to head with Nokia hardware. However the market do not have the services that nokia have.

Look forward for what you can achieve, look backward to remember what worked to get you where you are today. Keep up the evoltuionary work nokia.

i really dont like these craps. So how could i buy them and one thing my friends when the C905 was officially announced there were far more comments(593 comments) in the forum. So as 2 nseries are announced instead of a single C905 there should be double the comments C905 actually had.

This phone is not even released yet and there is so much attention and comments.

There is no such thing as bad publicity. Nokia will sell about a tretrazillion! lol

This is going to sell like hot cakes. All the people criticizing the device I reckon about half of them will buy it.

What's not to like?

It packs all the features of the n95 8GB/N96 in a smaller package and a bit more too.

The reason it's dual LED because it supports permanent light on during video recording. You can't do this with xenon because it gets too hot! Also it uses new dual micro-optimized flash lenses which is better than the standard LEDs used in previous models.

This means with a little scripting such as python we can have a torch feature too which I miss from SE.

I am buying one for sure!

The n-series are killing the n-series. This may cost nokia dear. Better release the n-series once in a year or once in two years.

Too bad they they didnt include a xenon flash this time , and 2.6 seems small compared to 2., those 0.2 are really noticeable :/ ... im desperate to upgrade my nokia n82 but nokia won't come on with why is ask for my phone. is a xenon flash and bigger screen too much to ask? a new interface would be nice too, i dont want a nokia tube by the way , touchscreens are zzzz to me
