Nokia 3700 Classic curved phone stayed forever a concept
Nokia 3700 Classic is another proof that Nokia rarely takes seriously the cool concepts for enhanced usability that its research labs churn out. In the case of touchscreen phones that complacency meant that the profit leadership is now being surrendered to Apple.

The Nokia 3700 Classic has had a comfortable to hold slightly curved design, and Nokia even made a promo video to show it off, however the project was nipped in the bud for some reason. The handset has been with pretty top specs for its times as well - Series 40 OS with WebKit browser, 3MP camera with LED flash and AGPS with Ovi Maps. Not bad, and it was obviously destined to come in different colors to boot. Sigh.

Nokia is still a big company in Europe and Asia. Their phones here are mostly prepaid.

Yes trentsinmypants, people do still buy Nokia handsets. More than any other handset in the world. They have a low prescence here in the states, but almost every where else they are the dominant handset maker.

Nokia is failing even being the top manufacturer. They just can't compare against other manufacturers. All my friends don't like their Nokia's. I think Samsung, HTC and Apple is what it's all about. Sony Ericsson is good too and maybe some other brands but not Nokia.

Nokia should start using android, its d best OS, they just need a pretty nice looking UI or just leave it stock android.

i realized that nokia is starts to fall in smartphones' market..i don;t undrstand why nokia still in their rules,i mean make phones using symbian OS,cmera 3 to 5 mpx..there's only few phones hv 8 mpx cmera..they dont want to upgrade their phone specs,and if they do,they will come out with only one phone,for exmple Nokia N8..this phone is trully amazing,with its amazing cmera 12 mpx Carl Zeiss Optics,xenon flash,1st phone in the world has HDMI cable out,USB connector to connect the thumbdrive..but it also has few things bad,for exmple stil using Symbian,no keyboard(optional),low n bad sound of speaker,the sensitivity of screen also not good enough compare to Apple,LG,Samsung or HTC..Nokia had rumored that the N8 will be the last Nseries phone using Symbian OS,n d next phone is start using Maemo OS,like Nokia N900..i hope this will be true..can't wait for next Nseries,probably N9..come on Nokia,let's conquer the world,again~ :-P

Trust me when i say Nokia has saturated the mobile phone market in India and Pakistan and pretty much all of the middle east and even Africa !! if Apple has sold 20 million iphones in US than nokia has sold a 200 million of low to mid range phone like these in the middle east , Nokia as of this moment is the biggest mobile phone manufacturing company in the world !!!
