Ah, the students and young-at-hearts will love this for sure:
Featuring 1 Ghz processor, capacitive touchscreen, seamless Facebook and Twitter Integration, Wifi and 3G Connectivity support, a fluid and touch-friendly user interface, refreshed browser, 5 MegaPixel camera, easy to use vertical full QWERTY virtual keyboard and a rather affordable price tag, the ultra-cute and much-anticipated Nokia 500 could very well be Nokia's true answer to teen-favorite Samsung Corby.
Nokia 500 comes with Ovi Maps - replete with drive and walk navigation - that's free for life! You can use it when driving to your fave mall! Or if you want, just for fun, use it when walking to your school!
Ah, I'd love to own this handset. I mean, just look at it. So cute and hip! And let's not forget, it's also a smartphone through and through! Full-powered!
Priced at only 150 Euros or roughly Php 8,000 before taxes and subsidies, Symbian Anna powered Nokia 500 is set to hit store shelves before the end of this quarter; Definitely another phone that will help Nokia retain its market dominance in the Philippines.
And look; the retail package even comes with three changeable covers to match your style:
