i think there's no problem with the space, RAM, application and camera......concern the most is the battery, that's the spec i didnt seriously predict... every 1 say this is the successor of N73, but n73 done good in battery life...

To Anandh
Thatīs not about copying another product or "fanboyism". It even disgusts me the copycats SE releases over their own models. Thatīs just about logic, Iīm curious about how the market will deal with so much lookalike products that have a different (but still high) price tag.I could even include N81 closer to N82 and N95. But, as I said before, letīs see the incoming reviews to see whatīs the N82 about.

So now that the N810, N81/N81 8GB, N95 8GB and now the N82 are officially out (have to say its a overnight shock) whats next on the rumor list? the touch interface N98?, if releases like this keep up we'll soon find out soon, Nokia is cool, i had just visited the nseries site yesterday and there was no N82, but today.....cool

Putting aside that N95 and N82 share at least 98% of the same hardware and software, obviously the second will cost significantly more, just because itīs a new release. I donīt get why Nokia is releasing two flagship devices that are just the same, as one may cannibalize anotherīs market share, since it doesnīt seem that N82 is a great advance over the N95. Letīs see it when reviews start appearing.

SE W890 has 2GB memory card included...and now N82 has too. nokia is repeating what SE is doing.
first phone with 1GB memory card i think it was SE W850, with 2GB W890.

I believe that Nokia means to actually announce and release these phones (N810, N95 8GB, N81, N82) later this year or early next year.

However, because iPhone changed the landscape of the mobile industry, Nokia was forced to announce and release these phones this year. I am not saying that the iPhone is a good phone (or bad for that matter). It simply changed expectations.

Not only are people expecting touchscreen phones with high functionality, they are expecting something different from phone companies. Nokia had always set the bar for the phone market over the past 2 years and they had been quite comfortable doing that, releasing their flagship phones around March, and coming out with an enhanced version of a phone of an older model (N80 IE) after about a year or so that the original phone came out.

Yet, N95 8GB followed very quickly after about half a year, and N81 8GB was pushed out together with N81. I am not surprised that N82 was intended with a 8GB version but was canned because Nokia felt that it is now tight a schedule to release the 8GB version.

It seems that because of the perceived change in expectations by consumers, phone companies are trying to create something new. But what is it that will be new, that's the exciting thing to watch.

For example, Samsung seems to be dumping their phones in quick succession this year, as had been previously announced. Sony Ericsson's anticipated announcement for tomorrow is expected to be canned. It is going to be an exciting year next year, just now sure how. I do not think touchscreen is going to be the revolution. Not for Nokia at least. They have something up their sleeves. But what?
