If you concentrate really hard you can see there is a tiny screen in the center of all the pink.

Something else. In Germany I don't see all that many Nokia phones anymore, at least not in comparison to three years ago. But I've been to India recently and almost all the people around me had Nokia (feature) phones.

Nokia is indeed very successful. And they can win the race to the bottom. It's just the profit margins that cause concerns.

You just can't sell phones for 600+ € to everybody.

You sure that pic hasn't been photoshopped? It looks like Mattel made it; something Ken would give Barbie.

Jan-Piet Mens, 2010-06-17

Oh, what's the problem? The fact that this model is available in several colors?

Mathias Ziolo, 2010-06-17

Yes - none of them nice! :-)

I dunno, I think my daughter would love it. Maybe they're aiming for the pre-teen girl business market. They don't have much money of their own, but they seem to have unlimited access to grownup wallets. heh...

There seems to be market for pink products. Don't get it, either, though.

If only the Treo wasn't dead already.

You are about to understand the headline.

Point taken... :)
