Nokia Unveils New Phone

Nokia (NYSE: NOK  ) isn't slowing down its pace of new phone introductions. Today, the company took the wrapping off its latest budget-friendly model, the 515. A traditional "brick" phone, the 515 is encased in an aluminum body fronted with polarized Gorilla Glass 2, with a keyboard made from hardened polycarbonate resin. It sees the world through a 5-megapixel camera with native editing features such as panorama mode. It has a 2.4-inch QVGA display and a microSD slot for cards up to 32GB.

The company said it will start shipping the 515 next month, beginning with Russia, Germany, Switzerland, and Poland. It will retail for roughly $149 before taxes and carrier subsidies.

    The perception of Nokia is still negative, as evidenced by most of the writings about the company. Nokia has reduced debt, reorged, cut expenses, bought out NSN (yes, that is good), created 12 (I believe) new smartphones in the last year and a half and they are awesome phones, they are starting to sell many more smartphones (27% and 32% increase last 2 qtrs), the Lumia 1020 is such a great phone and camera there is no competition for it, they have $3.5 billion cash, and they are supposedly coming out with a 6" smartphone , phablet and tablet soon. The just came out with the Nokia 515.. it is encased in an aluminum body fronted with polarized Gorilla Glass 2. AT&T starting carrying the Nokia Lumia 925 today. You can twist it anyway you want, but Nokia is doing fantastic! The perception WILL change… it has to!

    Never again will I purchase another Nokia product. My cellfone I got from them was defective, and they did not honor their warranty.

    Also, My C5-04 cellfone was suppose to have wifi on it, but Nokia took all these models from another fone, redid the look of it and sold it as a C5-04 that will not connect to your home wifi or cell towers.

    It was a piece of garbage, and hopefully this company will tank like the titanic.

    The company is not to be trusted ever again.
