Check out this new smartphone released by Nokia. It has no home button. We can all bag it out if we like, but at least they produced a phone without a home button and show that it can be done.

Also check out this video on the Nokia website... The style of the video is very Apple like....don't you think...:).....hmm wonder where they got that idea from....:)

Yeah, but it has no home button. Apple could learn a few things from their competitors.

I really like the vertical and horizontal swiping. Makes so much sense ...

They took a leaf out of Apple's book with the video too. Looks good. Is it Symbian or WinPhone?
