What's such thing in this handset that makes it so costly. Feature wise i dont think that this fone is worth its cost and even lookwise. shame on you nokiaaa....

because in my country... and believe me, because i sell contracts and work with phones, its cheaper to have two contracts and call some people, depending on their contract, from one phone, and some from the other. so im saving money because of my second phone. sounds stupid, but its like that. it always depend on the contracts, in other countries you cannot save money like this. so this is the reason...
its no problem, we maybe have the same opinion, just about different things... but its no reason to blame others...
this phone is totally bullet-proof i shot it with 6mm gun in metal side , and my nokia 8800 sirocco bulet proof edition is still alive , is resistant form 5mm,6mm,7mm and 8mm gun
nokia 8800 sirocco edition -$1400
nokia 8800 sirocco bulet-proof edition* -$4200
*This bulet proof edition is only for Russia,Kazakhstan,Kosovo,Muchiverca,
Boyllopoya,Muchibaba,Doubrewa and Pollata
2 phones? Why? That's just two contracts which is double the cash. You could have one phone which does this, that and the next thing ad use it for business and personal use. I can understand if the PDA is a work phone given to you by your company, but if it wasn't issued to you by your highers then why would you need two contracts?
I think the mobile phone culture is something tht I've missed out on. And maybe I am a poser for owning a classic car, but in the same respect, you own a classy phone. We both hve something in common. We like nice things.
I'm not here to troll the messageboards or anything, and I may have been slightly off the mark with the "poser" comment.
I just think that the phone is too expensive for what it is...
i also have a m600 and its perfect for my bussiness. it has everything, touchsreen, guess what, i have also tom tom 6 on it...
but i need to carry 2 phones with me for some reasons. my second phone is the sirocco. if you would have to carry two phones, would it be two same pda's because they can do everything??
my second phone is just for calling and writing messages, the m600 for internet, mail and so on. shall i buy myself another pda with all these functions i dont need for my second number just to say "the phone can...", or am i allowed to buy myself a phone i like because of its looks?
so why i'm now a poser? because i like the phone? if yes, than you're a poser owing a 1956 Austin M, because i just own a smart brabus, wich is perfect for the city ...
think about it
if you not effort to buy a vertu phone, Nokia 8800 Sirocco is the alternative. both phone offer the similar thing. Those people choose to have a Vertu or N8800, they are looking for something elegant, high class... perhaps you are the CEO of the company, on the other hand that you have your own secretary, so it also mean do does not need any PDA phone, Big memory, funny function on the phone.... because those task already done by secretary.... remember N8800 Sirocco is a brand image like VERTU.
Just wondering if they have improved the battery of this one compared to the original one?
Posh people dont buy this handset, its for the blind and people with more money than style! I also agree with the Chav phone thoery.
Fair enough. But I own a 1956 Austin M and an Omega Seamaster Chronograph and a Cannon Eos DII with 4 different Leica lenses.
So, your arguement from this point becomes invaid. I have luxury items, I like luxury . It makes life jsut that little bit more exciting and special. Still, I cannot see wy I would want this phone.
Fair enough, It looks alright. But people don't just buy Pagani Zondas because they're gorgeous. They buy them because they're a supercar. I bought a Panasonic Plasma screen because of the technology inside it and because It gives me an awesome picture.
My PDA kicks the arse out of your Sirocco. Perhaps people on here should stop being so vein and trying to impress others, and buying something practical.
My PDA may not be ade from gun-proof titanium-glass-scratchproof-alloy or whatever the hell it's made of, but it has form and function. Not only does it look nice, it impresses people far more because it runs Windows, it's touchscreen, I have TomTom in it, I an browse the internet, I can take 2.5mp photos and I can STILL make phonecalls and receive text messages!
Your sirocco does, what... 3 or 4 of these points?
Form and function people, Not just form.
the cost of this phone would feed a small african nation. think about that.
It's not a symbian phone...
it doesnt hv any card slot...
so wat's so special about this phone..??!
other than it is scratch resistant n all tat?
All you people keep complaining , forget about everything else , if you want a smart phone , or a phone that has bigger memory or longer lasting battery , go BUY ONE .. For the fact that you cant afford the 8800s , you decide to bag it . At the end of the the phone is a classy looking phone and has no problem's what soever , i myself have one and am loving it... whoever dosen't have one , i feel for ya , classiest looking phone iv'e seen. Enjoy your day Peeps . Dont hate what you cant have :)

One man food is another man poison
However, just think of those tragedy struck people around the world. A mere scrape of food would be their meal for a day. Shame on you people posting all these rubbish. Since you all could afford handphone, ask yourself when was the last time you have donated to the poor.
I would rather not have a phone and donate to the poor. Anyway just a not to all craving for nokia 8800. This phone only has a built in memory of 128mb, just like the fellow who say what a sight to see mother taking photos of her kids, sad to say he didn't stay longer to see the whole story, it would be something like this.
Mother snap snap snap happily away, suddenly her children demands more photo shot but poor mother could do nothing more, cos' phone memory full. Could not delete any previously taken shot so hide the phone away and trick the kids to have ice-cream instead.
Enough said. Enjoy for those with nokia 8800 and sweet dreams for those craving for one. God help those poor people who have none.
everybody is talking about the fact that 8800 scircco is not capapble of doing things that other "smart & full packed " phones can.
i am very curious : what are the functions that outstand 8800 scirocco , that other phones have ?
what you can do with other phones and that u can`t do with 8800 scirocco ?
batery life poor stick with 6310i . I think that negative comentarie comes from people that cannot afford to buy this phone . like in clothing bussines (phones are considered an accesory this days ) style makes the difference . Also I am vaery curious how many people buy full packed phones and uses 100% of thei functions .
this phone is beautifull, i saw a woman holding it and taking a picture of her two young sons. it just brought a smile on my face.
its a kinda phone that when you see it, you just say, wow.
hey guys come on .dis mobile is really great.u can spend lots of money for the model and color of dis mobile phones itself
