correct me if I'm wrong but if I may recall symbian has some issues with skype implementaion, thus no front facing camera . . .

These issues are totally separate. No need for skype for video calls, though yes, it's annoying that Symbian's version of skype doesn't support this. In other areas of the world, all you need is 3G to make video calls, just some networks (including all of them in the US) don't let you use that functionality.

It's probably missing to keep costs down, and to be fair, front facing cameras are probably not among the most frequently used feature on a phone.

If you want a front facing camera, get a C7, and wait for the Belle release. You also get an 8MP camera instead of 5

Fixed-focus AGAIN??? No led flash and secondary camera? The phone design is no different from Symbian Belle phone. Maybe it's time for Nokia to think about their designers and engineers...no good idea at all.
