    When I saw the specs of this phone I was amazed. This phone features 12Mp camera and last time I has Nokia N95 with 5MP camera and with that Phone I never really needed any camera for closeup pics. I saw the video quality of this phone and its fascinating. Will be waiting to get my hands on this phone.
