Nokia promises a talk time of six and a half hours, video playback of 6 hours and audio playback of an amazing 50 hours.

The mobile phone also has a feature which helps in updating software Over the Air (FOTA) and Over the internet (FOTI). For a better web browsing experience, Flash Lite 4.0 is also provided in the device (a feature absent in the Apple iPhones). The mobile phone also has a USB 2.0 port which gives the device on the go support and helps the device become a USB mass storage device for storing documents and media content.

The price of the phone in India is not yet disclosed by Nokia but the Europe price of the device is 380 Euros. It seems like a good mobile phone but the problem lies in the OS, since Nokia has already declared that its future mobile phones will be Windows Mobile phones, Symbian is a dying breed of Operating system in Nokia mobile phones.
