Symbian may be dying a slow death on Nokia, but that's not stopping the manufacturer from releasing a few more devices before its demise.  One of those is the Nokia Astound, which is available on T-Mobile for $79.99.  Originally announced at Nokia World 2010 as the C7-00, it offers a 3.5-inch Clear Black Display, Symbian^3, 8-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and is wrapped in a nice metal body.

The construction is fantastic, but the OS is on its way out.  Should potential T-Mobile customers consider this as their device for the next two years?  We'll figure it out.  Part 1 of 2.

Skylor Mitchell I wouldn't believe so because of the OS it has, but I could be wrong. I've also seen an ad for the Astound 2 or 3 times in the last hour or two.
Arvonn Tully The Nokia Astound is totally worth it -- It is a very slick phone, well done. Not at all like S60.. Symbian
Gabe Perez I like Aaron better than Noah. He's funny and cool. :P
Sam Crabbe I think its good.
Steve Moore Oh, well 79 bucks ain't bad. But did I mention Symbian sucks?
Steve Moore Symbian is old, played out, not fun, boring, etc.. Not to mention Nokia charges way too much for their handsets. Their customer service knows nothing about what they sell. Did I mention Symbian suck? No its not worth it.

Darryl Mouzone Again it all depends on the person and what they want from a phone. For some it won't be worth it for them but for others it will be worth it them. It all depends on the individual.
