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.

They look like Blackberry phones....I thought Nokia could bring something new but apparently not. The phones are ok and it seems that they will get the job done. 1 thumb up.

Candybar is a traditional Nokia form factor, one which they popularised long before BB existed / it's Nokia who innovates more with form factors (check out, say, Nokia 5510, 6800, 7710). Nokia makes qwerty candybars for more than half a decade, and for some time also in the segment of least expensive S40 "feature phones", for users who nonetheless want better text entry (indeed, it's possible that C3 is the most popular qwerty candybar worldwide, not some BB - which are simply more visible, in few loud markets)

That's what Asha (particularly 200) is / how else such a phone is supposed to look like? NVM how they are only a side note to a higher profile announcement.
