Part of me really wants this phone but the GUI is a dog, going by reviews.
Also worth noting Tesco will be selling this handset for £330 BUT may be locked to Tesco mobile.

Still hot if Quidco pays out for the unlocked version.

this is a very high quality phone in terms of hardware.

see the ifixit.com teardown results

BUT the new symbian^ is on its way out meegoo jointly with intel WILL be next for nokia's inc the future tablet OS
sonyericson have just dropped symbian completely
they wont go with android because of the ovi store etc.

so i'm waiting!
