Very interesting so this looks like 
an experimental niche product as
 the recently announced fashion UMTS handset. We will see more
 down to the earth phones coming.

Anyway the interesting part are the
new multimedia features that are 
giving us an idea of what nokia is 
going to deliver from vision to 
market. The DVB and enhanced radio 
 features are very interesting and
they are based on specific 
capabilities of Symbian Os 7. I expect
 Nokia integrating those features in
 future Series 60 rel 2 phones.

 Still an handset without any numeric
 and qwerty keyboard as far from 
practical and this is a step back for
