It's a good offer. You're not committed for life. If it's too much then leave at the end of your annual term. What's the worst that can happen? You lose around £110 (in my case). But that's having used the software for a year too. You can of course buy from somewhere else, but you would need to spend around £200 to get something as good as this. That equates to about a 2 year subscription.

What will make or break this deal is the price stability each year. A big hike in price would offend many non-business users and plenty of small business users alike.

Nope... I just don't get this lens.... smaller, maybe, but it's not worth losing sleep over when compared to the 10-30mm lens. The camera will never be pocketable and the 10-30 is small enough.
I would like to see a couple of high quality fast lenses. Other than that the kit lenses cover a huge range and produce good quality images.
I would also like exposure bracketing on the V1...but hey, we can't have everything :-)

On Nokia 808 Review: Damian Dinning of Nokia Responds article (214 comments in total)

A weak dynamic range with blown highlights can get tedious very quickly...add that to a Symbian system and I'm left with the feeling that this is nearly ready but it is not there yet. I had an XZ1 and the highlight clipping became an issue for me. Nokia has gone with Windows and that could be a mistake too. Android is the developers dream .... For the future I would love to see a much greater dynamic range. However, this phone for the early adopter is bound to do ok. Nokia has brought this out to make lots of early adopter sales. They probably have the next 3 generation phones sat in the factory waiting to go..... :-)
Kudos to Nokia for bringing this tech to the market....it is definitely a huge step forward in camera phones! :-)
