MaterAos, I gather the slider mechanism itself may or may not be plastic. But hey, they have to cut the cost somewhere to take the price point down and still maintain strong margins. And also to differentiate the product lines a bit more clearly.

Trust me, they DO know plastic sliders get weak.

Is it just me or does it seem like Nokia intentinally keeps certain features off certain devices just to add selling points to other devices?

For example, why don't they push out the "Say and Play" feature to all S60 phones via firmware upgrades? What's the point of restricting it to select (read esoteric) models while the rest of us, sporting the higher priced devices such as N95, N85 etc. are stuck with the useless rudimentary "launch application" voice commands? (yay, I can launch my music player with a voice command while driving. Now what?)

'.... Ovi Contacts, Nokia's combined presence and instant massaging application'

Did not realise the full capabilities of Ovi Contacts until now. Would definitely benefit from the instant massaging it offers.

Because "say and play" is a load of rubbish which doesn't work properly. :-)

Before I get accused of being a troll/hater/unreasonable pessimist, I should point out I did AAS's review of the first "say and play" device, the 5320. Generally it was a good phone for the price, but say-and-play was not one of its best points.

It works sometimes, perhaps most of the time depending on your voice, but not enough of the time to depend on it. Essentially it's just a marketing novelty that very few people would actually use in the long term. My current phone doesn't have "say and play", but I don't miss the feature one bit.

To be honest I don't think any voice control systems work reliably enough to be used in mainstream products as anything but a novelty. That's just my opinion of course, I know some are a lot more enthusiastic about it.

business user... non-business user

Why, oh why, oh why does the term 'business user' keep coming up! It's a weird term that actually means nothing. Even Nokia have finally realised that this is a misnomer. Mobile phones are taken to work or taken home afterwards depending on how you look at it.

Music, text or email, photo - seem like better ways to differentiate between phones or simply by cost.

I still think they should just concentrate on making a decent phone at a given price point. I would like to listen to music, watch videos, play games, find my way around, have wifi, take photos (with a proper flash), browse the internet etc all with my phone. Just because I might enjoy taking photos more doesn't mean the other things are not important to me.

The 5730 might be ok but is probably too much of a compromise to be really good.

Too much of a compromise? Oh come on..look at the price point man. Its as good as the N82 with the exception of the camera n the lack of graphics accelerator. We're not talking about what features you or I need to have in a phone for it to be good enough. What you want will probably be catered with by the N86 or the N97. We're talking about the 5730 and what it can do! PRICE PRICE PRICE!!! Thats what matters! Look at the features, then look at the price. Look at what it has intstead of what it doesnt, coz of the price limitations! Its pretty damn fu****g good for its intended market!

Actually, there has been such a thing. The 5510: It was released some 6-7 years ago.

Smile That's the phone I have ever search for

Hi folks! Thats the phone I have search for a long time. Now it comes to market. It's a music specialist, the N-Gage plattform is included and Nokia Maps. And it has a quwerty keybord, if I would write longer Mails or SMS - with T9 it's not really fun :-D. And it has ca. 100 MB phone memory free and it can drive 16GB microSD cards.
This phone replaces my then 2 year old N81 8GB. It was a very good device, but the low phone memory was a bad idea from Nokia
