Rage Joe: Nokia needs a new advertising department. They haven't been able to even make people understand what free maps and navigation means on their phones ( a lot of saved money, especially abroad ). Shouldn't be too difficult to make a nice little commercial about that. I would make the story line perfect in one day. They should contact me :)) And I mean it :)
I have been saying exact same thing quite a while... what the hell are they thinking. My last years travels have been made seriously easier by preloaded maps on my phone, when you can direct the clueless taxi in the new country is priceless (and the public transport, which I first thought was useless but it made life easy coming in a late flight to HK.. and quite a few other places with good public transport, just get more coverage and actually advertise it)
Weird focus on some messages seems to be how Nokia is dying/doing wrong/late/whatever... the fact is; it is out now and regardless of anything else, it is a killer camera and a usable phone. It does not have the ui mastery of iphone, sure the old Symbian is showing it's age...
The pictures are really that crazy sharp and clean, I liked how pictures came out from my N8 and this one just blows past it (Using 8mp creative mode, so getting most out of pureview and the large sensor, don´t really zoom.. just want the extra cleanliness of the pictures)
I bought this to complement my 5d2 on the road while it is having a major underhaul (10 months on the road and largely in Asia have not beed kind to it, I guess moisture finally caught up with it)I use phone for secondary photography when I don't want to take out/carry my 5d2 and this is a perfect one for the road. For me worth every penny, as I will always have a good camera with me wherever I go.
