You know what? Symbian belle is still laggy and look very unattractive compare to IOS and android. plus, these new phones' design is so poor. It's a big let-down

Have you used it???? those videos that you see on the the internet are from a pre-released version of symbian Belle so therefore you shouldn't be judging it yet.

Nokia does a lot of things right like hardware, antennas/radios, and power management. In addition, they don't build a business model based on tracking what you type in an email, search on a web browser, or where you go (Google).

Where they are lacking is the software interface and also the CPU/GPU not being sufficient for intensive video applications. Some might fault them for lack of apps., but they do cover all the good and useful apps. perfectly well and they have a huge market outside of the USA for developers.

So Belle looks like a great upgrade for the software interface. The bigger and more powerful single core CPU/GPU should take care of video issues and multitasking. The 701 looks like a nice smart phone alternative for consumers. Now if Nokia can just get T-Mobile USA to offer this instead of the buggy and underperforming Astound (C7). Sadly, we may only get a Windows Phone that acts just like a Google Android phone, but with Nokia hardware.
