Hi y'all, I'm frm Malaysia. I've just bought this fone in a few weeks ago n i have some comments about it.
1)The shape is elegant. (Business segment and not fashion) 2)Function have everything such as voice recording, loud speaker, FM radio, camera, etc that is build in and not attach externally. 3) Battery performance, sensitive(consume a lot of power)during playing MP3, camera and listening to the radio. To charge is around 2 hours. The cost is quite expensive. In Malaysia, it cost about RM 2300+ as at October-November ie the price only depreciate RM150 from the date of release somewhere at the end of 2004. The disadvantage is that, the contrast for the phone is not adjustable. The buzzer is terrible(ringing tone is not loud despite to switch it to the max level). The phone does not provide any ringing tone composer like the N3210, N8250 etc (perhaps, the trend is not popular then people keep downloading tons from the internet). No flash light like N1100 and N3200. No 'glow in the dark' like my friends N3100. The camera is only 1.3 Megapixel and I'm paying a huge sum of RM2300 (600USD). The polyphony ringing tones support only 64 channels which is normal then compared to my friends Samsung also which contains 64 channels. To sum up all, The N70 is an almost a perfect phone which almost all features included. Well, leave it to Nokia because over here, if u hate it or love it (by posting comments,) we are like talking to the wall and we are not deciding which to improve. Decision making is to be done by Nokia and not consumers. We, as consumers, will only sit and wait, hoping for new models to come and suit your needs because as far as i know, as far as i'm concerned, the N70 is the BEST model the Nokia has ever made. Previously i was holding a N5110 because i never thing of changing any new phones (at that time) because the skills of creativity and design is getting worse and worse. So Nokia, please, you have prove it to the world that you are the first leading telecommunication. However, in Malaysia, in the central region (Kuala Lumpur), most consumers has switch to Samsung just because the design is getting worst. PLease, hire better designers. Fine, again, we leave it to Finland Nokia. I would like to say, Good Luck to Nokia!!!!! :)

N70 hangs a couple of times at my first day. After 6 days of used, my N70 performance is at very satisfactory level. You also need to install the software patch1 created by Nokia to make your phone better on sound problem. To Teodor, thank you for posting files at the yahoo group. It gives me great add-ons software and really quite helpful. Tnx!!!

Just got a N70 a few days ago. Seriously. this phone rox. My 2nd symbian series 60 phone. In my opinion, its really a feature packed and solid smartphone.
No matter what bad things other people say about it, its not entirely true. Maybe they just dont know how to appreciate and utilise a smartphone( no offence :p )
Here's my short review:
Pros: 1) faster and efficient UI- ver. 8.1a
2) Very nice camera and smooth video recording
3) hot swap memory card
4) and many more!!!!!!

Cons : 1) Metallic parts prone to scratches
2) camera slide a little loose
3) thats about it i think
Conclusion : Overall a very good and efficient series 60 smartphone. Highly recommended!!!!!
