Great phone. I agree that the camera is fairly poor but that doesn't bother me. It will capture an image which is all I need when I don't have a proper camera to hand.What would be great to see in the next incarnation is for Nokia to add some multimedia connectivity without compromising on the beautiful form and design. I'm not a mobile 'texpert' but reckon they could add TV-out, FM transmitter, USB charging, and maybe GPS, without 'uglifying' it. One might say N-series however I'm not looking to have a big screen and an autofocus camera - more like the same little beauty which can reveal herself in the nighttime - listen to some music on a nearby stereo, or even watch a movie on a friend's TV, while charging off her USB. Oooh.
Agreed, this is a 99% perfect phone that covers every base for me. I do wish that they could squeeze in a gigantic battery in the next version for 20 days stand-by...and perhaps an OLED screen. Well done Nokia.
