Summary: Ive spent a lot of time researching my Nokia options and the 701 is the only phone that really fits my bill. Europe/US compatible and the right OS. I also spent a lot of time contacting the end seller of the phones asking specific questions. Some said they had it in stock (here on Amazon) and after contacting them.. they did not and couldnt say when they would. Thats fine, that is why I asked.
Summary: Didn't want to extend contact with at&t and got this phone from FGS trading. It's only been 3 days but happy so far. My other phone is an Atrix but I am quite happy with this for my second line. The free offline GPS and free maps seem to work pretty good (although not as good as a standalone Garmin). **Does anyone know if this GPS has voice activation? I mean can I speak the destination?
Summary: belle os is better in operation than i thought.8 mp camera is good.typing & touch is smooth and better than nokia c7. nokia's web browser sux but browser app. r available so no worries, nokia lovers should go 4 dis phone,better than sam. gal. ace... but i would prefer SE XPERIA neo of same prise,which is more user friendly and looks great touch is more smooth latest android os though 5mp camera works better than 8mp, hd screen,, so choice is urs....
Summary: Guys , Symbian will be supported for at least till 2015 and thats 3 years from next year, so dont worry about the dying os tag. A major chunk of Nokia's Talent was moved to Accenture for the outsourced model of operation for symbian. Symbian is probably the original multitasking rtos that is not going away without a fight. The UI framework will keep improving. Its just now that Symbian is getting better platform in terms of cpu power.

22 February 2012
Summary: one of the best things to come out of nokia's stable in recent tims. It is the cheapest cellphone to host an NFC chip, the future of e commerce. No other cellphone hositng an NFC chip is priced below 30K rs in the Indian market. In order of O.S usability and ease of use, IOS4> Meego> Symbian Belle> Symbian Anna> Windows mango> Android. Android is a failure. If your primary usage for a cell phone is to use it like a PHONE, then android is the worst o.s out there.
Summary: I have been using this phone for last one week. Performance of the phone is average. With 1GHz Processor and 512 MB Ram, it should have been more fast. While opening gallery having only 45 photos, it takes 3/4 seconds to open. The worse thing I experienced is that the photo I captured with it and stored in Memory Card got corrupted twice. Once the photos got corrupted, I could not retrieve those.
Summary: if some one is in search of a new thing in mobile world ,,he/she should choose this of a kind .response of touch is awesome. it senses u like using a iphone 4 and good hd quality enables u to feel the reality and grooming out the world ,all apps and features are useful and gps is cool(free of cost). one thing should have added to it is carl zeiss autofocus which would be a great power for this mobile phone . allthough great phone. one can buy this .
