Meantime, Nokia just keeps getting smaller with recent layoffs, products aren't as selling because MOST people aren't thrilled what they offer. Your Pureview 808 is selling with 42% off on cash. These are facts. So be among the minority who enjoy symbia. Stick to your guns. Don't ever change your 808. Since they're on sale, get another for backup.

What that trablet can do, all newer smartphones can do. So what's the point of your comments? Are quite useless isn't it? Now, i understand that you will miss your wife and you like seeing her on your phone. I can do that with n8 808, lumia 920, s2, ip3/4/5, megaphone, dumbphone crapphone. And so on. I would watch my wife on my pc while tacking a shower i'd might add. But each with his choice of doing stuff. Now, don't try to convince me anymore that your trablet is the best. I would not give Symbian for android, not in a million years, but the wp8? No way man;). As for the Nokia for samsung? What?:))))). I like samsung tv's though. They don't need to be handheld-ed so see how crappy the build is. And those speakers and mic's. Are all so cheap i really really would not pay a dime for this phones. But, this is my choice and that is your choice. Now, that we settled this, can we stop this? I tried samsung products and htc and sony (others are not worth to mention). I don't like them, Samsung= cheap, HTC=worst battery life ever, sony=ok, but i hate i'ts system. Now, if you tried Nokia or not, you like or not. I don't care, and you shouldn't care what my choice is. I like quality first. And that comes only from Nokia. And just for the sake of GSMarena:P i stop talking now:P.

200$ for an IProduct? Only thing they'd sell for this price's a rock with a apple carved in it -_-.

I mean, 700$ for the Iphone 5? Let me laugh... I can understand such a price for the Galaxy Note 2 which has a much bigger screen, for for a tiny 4 inch screen, that's call stealing people. If you bought the Iphone at this price, just know that you've paid 400% for the phone and 300$ for the apple behind it.

This is the usual Apple's cheap marketing strategy to get themselves in the news.

> In reply to Carol @ 2013-01-13 21:51 from L7eM - click to readCarol, it's a good Monday morning and I have just bid my wife who is going for half the year to Japan to lead on a project there. My main unit that I will be taking out most of the time is the Note II which we bought yesterday. She has my former Note. Big screen, mobile and be able to pocket for our skype calls anytime wherever and whenever we can.

This is one instance when the tool you got is worth more than what you paid. It has a personal meaning to different individual. Heck, I don't care exactly what anyone defines what the Note is. All I know now is it's big enough to see each other, has the capacity to send her messages and it warps time and space to be able to know we have a good thing going.

No good. I kinda like Apple's products. Never had an iPhone. Hearing those rumors I thought I should wait and see. In this case, I'm not buying overpriced iPhone 5 or 4s. I will look elsewhere now. Lumia 820 maybe.

Nokia N808 is awesome. It's people like you that make the other decent users of this model look bad. It's a legit Nokia shop in the Philippines. More of 40% off. Go crazy with your "phone". It would seem its smarter than you.

> In reply to TheNeighbor @ 2013-01-13 00:31 from v0qJ - click to read808 is 50% on sale where? In china imitations market? You tried it?:))) Nice image recorder? It is the best image recorder ever to be found in a smartphone. And way better then point and shot cameras. Go do some research about 808 camera before saying it is nice. Also don't tell me what should i buy. I' convinced i know what i like and what is good;). And this phone is not nice. It is supreme! Now, come on man, stop pretending that you know stuff. You already made a f*l out of your self by saying that Note has the most powerful xenon flash when that object has a lame camera and a led flash... and now you continue making a f*l out of your self again. Nokia 808 doesn't sale? This device is for symbian lovers and users only, was never promoted and never intended to sale to the ignorant mass. It is not for everybody/anybody;). Also, the most of smartphone users don't even have a clue what Symbian is, they heard that is not good from others that heard the same thing from others that had no clue how to use a smartphone. Without knowing that Android is pretty much a wannabe symbian system with a new interface. They managed to implement the true multitasking (a simple future that symbian has since it's birth) only now. And still have allot to learn from symbian, or to steal, as android is used with. Anyway... 808 costs 700 euros in Germany in one store (the only place you can find it). And 450 euros online. So please tell me where you can find this phone half reduced (besides, in your head) cause i'm pretty shore that after my announcement will disappear in less then a day. As for the capabilities of your tablet, i really don't care. All smartphones can do that. Faster or slower. For the big work i use what it is needed to be used. A PC! Or a laptop. Tablet's, phablet's, mumbo jumbblets are for amateurs. Or for people that don't want to recognize two simple things: If you want to do a good job, do it on a pc! And stop frustrate your self with tablets. If you want to make calls, do it with phones. Not with half meter plastic crapp. That's about it.

> In reply to Carol @ 2013-01-12 21:22 from J5L3 - click to readThe N808 is 50% off on sale. The Nokia shops here should have sold them out. 41mp camera. I tried it. Nice image recorder. Why do you think it went on sale?

In my past numerous postings under the Galaxy Note comments here at GSM Arena, I've regarded the Galaxy Note as never a "phone". You can check out the last 13 months worth of comments I made. I talk about it passionately because I actually bought one. I tweaked it to its most optimum performance. I can readily profess that it is the most versatile device in the first 10 months, until the Notes II & 10.1 stepped up. I just got the Note II last night. I do my surfing, magazine article writing, research, sketch walks, portraiture drawings, HDMI lecture slide projections, house designs, planning out my month, record project progress on site, convey ideas to colleagues of what exact architectural details are to be implemented, and all with this excellent device that it's in my top shirt pocket. Oh, I can say it does excellent phone calls.

I never looked or was impressed with anything before the Note. The simple fact is it's powerful and it has the Wacom tablet system. If I need a professional-like picture taken, I use my DLSR camera. Not a half-priced Pureview phone. Go get the N920. It has that. Go WP8.

> In reply to TheNeighbor @ 2013-01-12 03:10 from v0qJ - click to readYou shore can talk allot, but don't know to much. If you don't understand me, then it will be clever not to comment. Note is not a phone, is a phablet tops. Some call it a tablet with phone functions, some call it phablet, i call it big screen crapp. Cause that is what it really is.

Ooo, you can play with, and paint some "art" on it? Ooo, super. Now, you really convinced me. It is not for kids. But wooo, stop there! Most powerful xenon flash??? So, this "miracle" of a phone is better then nokia 808 to understand?:)) Do you even know what that is man? This crap here is no where near the N8 or 808 camera And this phones HAVE xenon flash. Xenon flash will fit in that device when will rain with pigs. Slim means: crappy camera and most likely, led flash. And that is what it has.

I don't like Apple, only the fact that their phones are still phones. That's about it...

Typical American way of marketing. Way of manipulating and indoctrinating the mass... Next time, before you talk. Get some ideas about what you talk...
