Hmm ...

Also, if they insist keep on suggesting using these devices as music players it would be a good idea to fix the following (for starters):

1) Remove the high-pitched hiss when playing back mp3s to earphones (observed on a N95, with proper headphones, not present on a proper mp3 player, and probably not audible with the excuse for headphones that come with the device, which, evidently, their QA (if any) uses ...)

2) Provide a decent player: e.g.

2.1) Being able to adjust the volume in smaller than 10 % increments (0-100%) is less than ideal as 40 % was too silent and 50 % too loud for a silent environment. Turns out an add-on player had 1 % steps and could be adjusted to a suitable level so this is not likely to be a hardware limitation. The hiss mentioned in 1) was still present though ...

2.2) The stupid thing insists on being aware of music files and using poorly implemented playlists based on its (time consuming) scans instead of e.g. playing back everything found in (the subfolders) a certain (top level) folder on the microSD card.

... I suspect that in World Nokia "Xpress" is actually pronounced just like "Depress" ...
