Nokia has determined to provide Smartphone experience for cheap and with goodies like free turn-by-turn navigation solution in the hope to gain its stature in the US market. Apart from mobiles like Nokia E71 none of Nokia’s handset had made any impression in the US market partly due to its refusal to tie up with any network. It looks like it has now decided to do the right — tie up with networks to provide handsets.
