$390 unlocked is a bit pricey for me. How much would this type of phone normally cost if one was to sign with a 2 yr contract w/ a provider like t-MOBILE OR at&t?

You people don't read. This isn't the same old Symbian OS. But then again, I don't expect much from the non-American teenagers who frequently post here.

Why does everyone think that this phone is meant to compete with the likes of iPhone or G1??? Nokia is not a one flavor cellphone maker, like Apple who has various MP3 players for different customers(Shuffle, Nano, Classic, and Touch); Nokia makes various Cellphones, Smartphones(Classic, XpressMusic, E-series, and N-series) to fit multiple customers needs. This phone is not Nokia's response to the iPhone or G1 or any other Touch based phone, this is Nokia's first stab at the Music Market which Apple dominates(in the U.S. for the most part; thus it's under Nokia's XpressMusic line up and not their Stronger N-Series Smartphones). The price announced is killer for one very cool reason... It includes a one year subscription to Nokia Music, which Nokia will launch in the U.S. first quarter 2009. With that subscription, you have unlimited song downloads that are DRM locked to your phone and PC, but yours to keep forever without giving them back like other services ask you to do. After that there is a la carte option subscription, which by my guess will be very competitive to other music services. And if that wasn't enough, everyone should read the specs that the new S60 5th edition OS has to offer(which had been under developing long before the touch crazed hit the U.S.). It not only offers improved copy and paste functionality(over the existing system on all S60 devices), but FULL Web Browser(with Flash Video support, which was already present in S60 3rd Edition FP2 devices) on a new High Resolution(640x360) 16:9 aspect Screen to name a few. And with all this said, this phone is still under Nokia's mid-range line up; which in the end makes you wonder just how much you're paying for an iPhone or G1 that claim to be High-End?
