Eh ? Why be brave ?
They are a lot of phone for the money (I have the 625) and they also give you the SDK for free so you can write your own applications through Visual Studio.
Maybe not the best phone on the market but it ticks the boxes for a lot of people. The sat nav is fantastic which is the main reason I bought mine - I needed a replacement phone but I use satnav more than the phone features.

I use Waze (free sat nav) app on my phone, by far the best i have used. No need for a tomtom anymore. You see a lot of the sat nav manufactures giving out free life time map supdates over the last few years, i would assume to try and stem the flow of people using their smartphones, i bet their market share is on a rapid decline.

My main criteria when choosing this phone were :
Low monthly cost (I don't use the phone / texts much)
Satnav
Preferably a Nokia as their satnav software has always been top notch
Half decent screen
SD Card slot
Decent standby life
I spotted a deal on HUKD which was £12 a month and the phone was "free" if you took a 24 month contract. You also got £6 a month cashback which meant I was getting the phone, unlimited texts, 250Mb / month data and 500 minutes a month call time for £5.99 a month.
I couldn't argue with that !

Ahh - the music. I think they use that song for the majority of their products at the moment.

Unfortunately the sound on my laptop isn't really good enough to hear much.

well it is brave to do something different to the rest of the sheeple, you cant move for iphone touting chavs, and now that there all getting bored with being the same as everyone else there all talking about getting the new android phone (cos it works better) but not one of them has much sense so the chances one of them would purchase a nokia device that's far superior to the top of the line iphone  are slim to none .....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
