PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Today is the start of Nokia World 2011, the event where Nokia would unveil its first Windows Phone 7 device(s). And so they did. The Finnish mobile giant unveiled two Windows Phone 7 smartphones, as well as four new Series 40 phones for emerging markets. The most interesting thing? Pricing. Pretty aggressive. Update: Anybody want a kidney?

Especially in "emerging" markets where 500€ is a lot of money.
No, not a very agressive price really.

It's aggressive in when you take into account the pricing of its competitors.

There's no feature parity there.
These are it's competitors. What you linked is closer to the Lumia 710, which has a similar price tag.
