I personally have never really liked Nokia phones. I have had 1 in my long time ownership picture. The device was good don't get me wrong it was just kind of boring as well as lacking in performance and functionality, although it was very easy to use with good call quality.
I personally hope they get there R&D moving because as we all know more players equals more competition, more competition means more choices, more choices equals better prices for more functional devices etc etc. In the Smart phone segment this is very important right now. If (and I am sure it will happen sooner or later) Smart phones become the standard hopefully the pricing as well as proliferation of both smart phones as general devices, and the 4G market will grow larger and faster.
If those things happen the services Smart Phones offer will be cheaper and more accessible for everyone. For Nokia to not be looking so good is overall kind of disturbing being there previous positions. I know they still have a foot hold in the market, and a rather good one as well. However; they used to lead the market substantially!
I just love seeing Scrappy Doo up there! Nice work, Paul!

I had one of those cheap. budget Nokia phones. Wasn't really wild about that one and I'm not really wild about the Nokia ones, when there are other smartphones that can do more and are easier to use, why use Nokia?
Judging by the pictures, the user interface really ain't appealing to me. In fact it seems convoluted and confusing. Also I feel that Nokia is trying too hard to make their phones appeal to everybody, I feel companies like HTC, Samsung, Motorola and some like those are really the better choice because even though they might use the same or different OS (depending on the manufacturer/carrier) but at least the ones that are easy to use, are easy to use.
I don't agree with the whole Nokia bringing the prices down thing, the market is fierce enough as it already is and I don't see Nokia bringing it down, all Nokia will be doing is providing another alternative for those who don't want a Blackberry or a iPhone or one of those Android-phones. The only way it can make a difference is if it hits hard.

That's an awesome icon, even if Scrappy was a little punk. :P
Lemme at at em uncle Scooby, I'll splat'em... :)
Seriously though I do like the E73 on Tmobile. I've always like the E7x formfactor.
