Overall, we still feel this is another phone from the Nokia handbook of 'How to make phones that are a bit like the other phones we made but also a bit different'. It sadly skipped the chapter on 'How to make the phone as good as the competition', but depending on the price could still attract a lot of those that dislike BlackBerry phones but love a QWERTY keyboard.
