    hi, you have mentioned that Nokia is not popular in qwerty series. But nokia E71 and E72 and E63 are best selling qwerty models all over the world including India.
    Please add your valuable comment on this.

    • Yes, though Nokia E series became quite popular, it was more of a one-off thing, and Nokia is not yet particularly known for its qwerty mobiles. Indian manufacturers like Micromax, Karbonn, Lava etc. are the highest sellers of QWERTY mobiles, much ahead of Nokia.
