    Would be a killer with a capacitive display.

      Agree with you there, although capacitive screens are more expensive I think

        Besides, screen size is not big. Resistive screen is more sensitive and fits better.

          I would have liked the screen to be a tad bigger and capacitive myself. I hate resistive screens myself

          Just look at that guy trying to swipe the pictures at 1:00 and 1:01.. Most people would try it that way and would wonder why nothing happens. Capacitive would offer a more natural user experience in many cases, including here. I know resistive is more accurate but it sure is frustrating to use.

    They just made S40 look smoother than S^3. 🙂

      Seems strange a lot of people have said that S40 looks better and is smoother than Symbian 3 too from the videos we have seen, I completely agree. Cant wait for Meego then. Contrary to reports Nokia can make a pretty UI after all 🙂

        well from what we’ve seen looks very nice. also think that this is a low end device so the expectation are not very high , but I think today Nokia set a new standard for low end devices and how should they look. All I can say is great job Nokia and I hope you will make the same impressions on high end devices.

    does skype run on this s40?

    Resistive looks cheap, not for mass market, most of the users are not painters or artist, chinese people do not have problem with capacitive screen for chinese character writing

      K, do you know how much capacitive screens cost? The screen itself would have cost them about $80-100. Besides, I dont think the screen used here is cheap, it looks MUCH better than my 5800 or even the N97. The screen is even unlike 5800 and N97 where the screen was kinda uneven and wobbly. Plus, this thing is targeted towards the low end market and NO low end phone would have a capacitive screen. Writing on capacitive screen is harder than you think it is, especially on small screens, something like the iPad is OK for writing and drawing.
      I think this phone will ROCK in the low end market coz it combines the best of the two worlds. And I might even buy this as a secondary device to accompany my N8…………

      honestly at this point save for multitouch capacitive offers no advantages over resistive that justify the cost, most people apply enough pressure easily enough, unless of course you’re a weak limbed person like joshua ;p

    i hope nokia bring this ideas to non-touch symbian qwerty mid range phone like e72

    glad to know the new standard spec for low end phone with touch and 5mp

    new standard sepc for mud range? Anyone?
    Touch and qwerty, 8mp wide angle carl zeiss, broadcom gpu

    high end , all in one include the x series music processor

      i think non touch interfaces(save for keypad/keyboard) are on their way out for the average consumer device or something with a decently sized screen. The X3 has a 2.4 inch screen and functions just fine without a dpad. Infact it works as perfectly as i’d imagine, no massive onscreen abc/123 keypad when typing up a message

    A touch-featurephone with apps? Strange combination somehow…
