With a gentle glide over the touch screen people can go online and get access to many services including thousands of apps from Ovi Store. In certain markets, the new phone will also be available with Ovi Music Unlimited, enabling the owner to access a virtually limitless range of the latest hit music that can be stored on the available 16GB memory card.

its seams a good cell but symbian s40 sucks (10 year Old Operating system )
funky apps, discontinued Operating system
if this device had s60v5 then it can be called a killer mobile
AS s60v5 has got a huge application database


full touch phones are available @5k to6k range.this phone is not full touch and costs 9k.better wait for price drop.
