IMHO it's got the right pricepoint for emerging markets (ie: India/China) which is historically where Nokia has done very well. Those markets are the only reason why Nokia's GLOBAL marketshare is still as large as it is ( somewhere around 15% as I recall). Those markets are not going to see big volume purchases of their top tier phones.
