Wow. Nokia trying to get back some market share
Not easy, very competitive now. They used to be the first but failed to evolve when IOS, Android come out.

They r not the Nokia from the past. The old nokia company sold it to Microsoft.

This current Nokia was just a brand name. The actual company that designed it was HMD.

this nokia also abit overpriced.
Agreed. But is local reseller problem. List price isn't that expensive. Will have to see who is the after sales support for Nokia and subsequent firmware support.
Hope it will not end up like Nokia Windows phone (come and go).

If you ain't interested then why are you here. Go and buy your over priced Samsung or iPhone then..
He is here to find out if phone will get popular. Cannot compare apple and orange. Not all package/feature in Samsung/iPhone ate in Nokia. On top of that, after sales support.

Yeah, at least HMD promised regular software update for the Nokia phones they produced and since they use stock Android UI, it's easier and faster for them to push updates

You are referring to kasia mobile? But are they official retailer? I don't see their name in the list of names provided in the article by HwZ in the first post.

A certain retail shop is selling at $668. Local set. It might be even cheaper in qoo10.

Nope Nokia loaned their branding to HMD to produce phones for them..
