To the person who said the 'Real' N80 is from Finland and those manufactured in China are ripped off, Here is some news for you: If you rip open your phone, and have alook at the main Cricuit board, you will see 'Make in China' printed on it. Yes, even if you buy the 'Real' N80. they are mostly made and assembled in China. All gone thru the same QA process defined by Nokia.
Now, back to the main topic. Got this 3 days ago, got the 'Made in China' version, but it works just fine. WiFi however could use some improvment. it constantly drops off from my Netgear AP which is only 2 rooms away :( otherwise, I'm loving it.
anyone seen the new firmware for the N80?
I hope they solved all the bugs.
this could be a great news..
do u know the site where u found it?
but thats with all companies ALL OF THEM HAVE LIMITATIONS. right now NOKIA is the only one innovating. SE still its quite of good mixing things but then again they have their limitations they haven't bring anything new to the market in a while! still their mp3 and cameras are quite a top notch next to nokias. (even thought the n93 will change that for some time)so saying this phone its crap its kind of unfair. knowing this phone have no competition right now. feature connectivy and its a top in quality =)
I am really interested in buying this phone , but i wanna know more about its speaker if it is stereo or not? its shape is really fantastic.also some people had told me that it makes many problems & n70 is bitter than it. can any one help me in my choice?
sorry i dont want to get into a flame war, but i did find it amusing that mIpm had to mention that he had a digital camera that featured 5mp image res, but also.....wait for it......a camera with autofocus!!!!
very interested in the firmware comment below...
I could go out today and get this phone in the UK on Vodafone, o2 or Orange but I wanted it on 3. Anyone out there got any idea when the N80 will be available on 3. Come on 3 get with it.
This is a kick-arse phone.
Having this phone as my prior phone.
my 2 cents,compare to n80,k800 is nothing,this is a new state-of-the-art wi-fi compatible phone
cheers....just my 2 cents
Got this phone from Orange yesterday - it really is fantastic - realy, quite brilliant. Build quality is superb - not sure yet how the battery is going to fare.. Binned my V3x as it was really dreadful, cheap along with miserable battery life - the N80 is in the next league compared with the Motorola - buy it - it's the best thing on the market today.
I have just purchased this phone and it is amazing. Although the speakers are not as good as the 3250's they are still amazing. This phone has everything that you can emagine, but using the phone as much as i do drains the battery. So, you will have to charge it every night unless you want a screwed up phone. The video confrencing is amazing, and not to mention the 3.23 Megapixel camera! this phone tops any other phone in the market
in other forum poeple says that can be a new firware for the N80 19-05-06
RM-92 dp v 12.0 (MCU SW 3.0617.0.6)
i think you also have 15 pockets on your coat to carry all this amazing technology along with you, mobile browser, camera, mp3 player etc etc...
this is not a place to say this phone is crapper than a 5mp digi cam... of course its not better than a stand alone camera or a PDA or an IPOD, we all know this. But this is a smartphone with capabilities of all those things.
if you dont want to buy it then fair enough, its your choice, no one is forcing you.
Oh BTW your a muppit and no one cares if your from Finland.
Some N80s have already been sold in Finland too. But there's shortage of these phones now.
And many have bought this phone beforehand, so the phone shops are delivering those first and due to the shortage of getting these on sale, it may take for a while them to become awailable in shops ; )
But in personal view I think that this N80 is like Microsofts every new Windows, so "The best Nokia ever" - so still with lots of disadvantages and limitations ; )
I won't buy this phone bcause I allready have had for several years
- a digital camera with 5mp, autofocus ...
- mp3 player with radio and recording ability (with mp3 encoding) ...
- mobile web browser with display big enough to really browse ordinary web pages not needing to have eagle eye to see them ; )
. . .
And btw I'm from Finland ; )
Sorry Mikey, I gave you the link to GSMareana!
The correct link is:-
You can use eMSNlite, it's a free download, i've just put it on mine and it works. It's a cross between normal MSN messenger and SMS messaging. But seems to be pretty good. Heres the link:-
There is a program on this called IM (instant messanger) go to my own and look for IM that is you messenger and you can use your wlan to chat to others
