Anyone considering any Nokia phone should probably go to the JBHiFi website and put the word Nokia into the search box. All the Nokia models are being discounted around 20% right now.

I’m very impressed with the way Nokia provides prompt updates to the operating system, as you see in the story above. This is something you don’t get with Samsung.
