    Really, if it turns out to be true that they did not include hardware GPS into the 730 I will buy a Android device the day this new nokia/ms hardware brainfart gets released, are they really THAT stupid is the question ?

    They include a 5mp selfie cam for 13 year old girls but not a BASIC smartphone feature like hardware GPS, are they mad... On drugs ?
    Most stupid company ever if that's true !!

    I think you misunderstood, "no hardware navigation"? It's referring to capacitive buttons I believe.

    "The device lacks hardware navigation and camera keys" means "The device lacks keys for hardware navigation and camera." In other words, it lacks the capacitive keys for navigating the device as well as the dedicated camera key.

    They would literally have to disable the GPS to achieve this, as it's part of the SOC. That would make zero sense.

    GPS is built into the chips by default. No way would they disable it.

    Somebody needs to calm down.

    First, its a rumor. Wait until everything's official, and then kick and scream.
    Second, you completely misinterpreted the article as people have already stated.
    Third, that'd be preposterous.

    (obligatory "most stupid poster" if true)

    I believe a GPS is required as part of the windows phone chassis specifications. Even if it were not, since Nokia had even had a gps in the 530, they would be extremely unlikely not to include one in their mid range phone.

    i REALLY hope that rumor about the missing camera button is wrong. Damn, if you really want to make a "selfie phone" why remove the easiest way to open camera app even with lockscreen on?
    Also, that button is the easiest way to take photo too (selfie or not), you just grab your phone and shot, without worrying to not tap capacitive buttons or some other part of the display.

    well, we'll see if thats true in 7 more days

    The answer is, its Nokia/MS, and its a x30 phone !
    I think they have a deal with Google and Apple so they are forced to screw up on every new phone they release !

    thanks!
