Ok this has really been bugging me for years since colour screens first came out and I have stayed away from Nokia ever since

Why don't Nokias have text outlines on their phones? SE; Samsung and Moto all have a outline around their fonts/text so no matter if you have a dark background or light background; you can still read the text

However with Nokias; even the N95s- it still doesnt have outlines around their text.

Anyone know why? or is it that Nokia is just being stubborn

In the case of the smartphones range (N95 et al) think this probably falls into the category of "if the user wants light backgrounds they can do that themselves" (for instance by installing a light colured theme, too bad for people like me who predominantly like dark ones).

There are quite a few instances of basic functionality gaps that Nokia has never seen fit to address, presumably on the basis that the extensive software base generally has a fix for it if demand is high enough. Sad but apparently true.

But surely while they are beta testing the product; while using it and setting backgrounds - they would've noticed "Hey I kanisteri ei kuulua kirjoitus" (Hey - I can not read the text)

Thats exactly why I suggest it seems to be an area of conscious neglect...
