    One word: hideous. That is without question the homeliest WP handset so far. Hard to believe that's actually coming from Nokia.

    Video Review, check out the pricing listed at Engadget. They'll sell a lot of them if that pricing is right for a new phone off contract.

    I think it may look OK in a very few select colour schemes, but for the most part it looks nowhere near as classy as low-end, similar priced Android phones or the zero-on-contract iPhone 3GS.

    The more I see it, the more I'm really, really surprised at quite *how* bad it looks. Nokia's other mid to low-end handsets don't look this awful. What were they thinking?

    Perhaps in Europe, but IMO any unsubsidized phone that looks that cheap isn't going to make a very big a slash in the U.S. regardless of price. And I think a little of that may be owing in no small part to Nokia not being as highly recognized among the average consumer in this country as it it once was.

    I said the same thing about the orange Nokia N8. Who would want a phone that looks like a pumpkin, but a lot of people liked it. :giggle:

    Had to laugh at the video on this page:

    Almost the first thing the Nokia Rep says is "as you can see it's beautifully thin".

    If that's "beautifully thin", I'd hate to see what he considers fat! A phonebox?

    I dont think it looks that bad. I'd definitely buy one in black with a white back if the price is right.

    One thing that strikes me as odd is that apparently either nobody has noticed this, or nobody has cared to ask it... This device doesn't use a Carl Zeiss optic equipped camera? that just sucks I've looked all over the site to see if it mentions it but it doesn't so apparently this is really REALLY low end then huh?
