Quit the arguing, quit the debate! WHAT i am about to tell you is SOLID fact that hopefully will keep everyone quiet.
(There are things more important in life than arguing about who is BSing, who is telling the truth and when a certain MOBILE PHONE is coming out! Jesus christ people, get out more.)
ANYWAY to stop the childish arguing, i have spoken to Nokia today (19th April 06) and they CONFIRMED the phone is out "Next week" and it will initially be available "probably on Vodafone at first".
So there. The N80 is OUT in the UK next WEEK.
There is no more arguing, you now know...
Bare in mind Vodafone is the worst network, mainly to do with it being a complete rip off, i would wait until mid May, when the phone will probably be available on the "better" (cheaper) networks like 3G for example.
I hope this helps.
I found a site that has the N80 on sale... Is this site ligit? http://www.hwforums.com/1525/m...es/5268.html
I have just phoned and spoken to someone at Nokia, who has confirmed to me that the N80 will be available from the 8th May, as the Nokia employee states in a previous opinion lower down this page.
The amount of comments that i have bene talking to nokia and voda, you really have no idea who is telling the truth or not. like people saying they have them already, when it is unlikly. not saying impossible but unlikly. So please can you make them corrispond with each other and have a hard facts plz.
I spoke to Vodafone UK recently who informed me this is available with them tomorrow 20 April I have an email alert due from them when its in, but they did say handset will cost as well as contract. It is also showing as a coming soon phone on O2 website, just says due May 06. Hope to renew my contract on this but depends on handset price.
I know it looks good but , the n91 will be way better. surly the slide mechanise will break quickly. And for that kind of money ouch. Wouldnt really look forward to that.
hi all, i work for nokia in the uk and i can confirm we have this phone available on 8th may. i have also been advised we will be the 1st to stock in the uk. let me no any q's
duz any 1 hav an idea of how long networks take in testing thier phones also how many phones wer shiped into europe/asia small or big batch thanx!!
So, the Truthteller was right. We all made unnecessary comments on him without knowing anything. He was the first one to confirmed from confedential resourses within Nokia Finland that N80 and N91 were shipped on April 13th to Asia and Europe.
Thanks for your inputs Truthteller. I am very impressed with the fact that you didn't bother about ppl making comments about u and shared teh truth with us. Also I apologize on behalf of everyone who was rude to u.
TRUTHTELLER ROCKS! LETS ALL TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK HIM.
Also, Truthteller, please don't leave the forum as now we have at least one person who knows what he is talking about.
The phone IS OUT!!!
Greece is the first place in Europe that is available...
WAHOOOOOOOOOO - people in the UK this phone has been released. i just phoned nokia now 12:16 "19th april". spoke to some woman and i said can you tell me the date when the n80 will be released.
she said it has been released so i said when she said yesturday then i said is that confirmed by nokia and she said yes.
SO i dont really no why it isnt in stores yet. maybe i can phone up a few other places :D
any websites were u can buy this phone from greece or cyprus and they ship to the UK?
also if i do this will i have 100% features and everything i.e will it be EXACTLY the same as if i bought it from the UK?
1) N80 and N91 are the real thing (i.e, no prototype). N80 Color Silver infront, black behind.
2) NOKIA N80 has been released pre-Easter in Cyprus and Greece as our Easter is this coming Sunday (Greek Orthodox. I guess Nokia for marketing reason is giving priority to Orthodox Christian (that we celebrate Eastern 1 week later). After all, we in Cyprus are only 800,000 people!!! How many will they buy the N80? Wimbleton area in London may be is 1,000,000!! How can you satisfy 60,000,000 UK people!!
Soundtech, is this this a prototype or the final release version that you have for sale? Also what colors are available?
you can see more photos taken using N80 here
some of them are here in first look
Guys i dnt thnk it is worth spending a lot of money on the N80 as i have the N70. Theres nt much difference. i thnk itl be hrd 2 chnge the original cover aswell.
We are selling both Nokia N80 and N91 since Monday 17th of April. Prices etc you can check http://www.soundtech.com.cy (£=2US$). N80 comes with BL-5C battery (this is the cheapest Nokia battery!!) but great phone. N91 is a bit bigger but 4GB microdrive. First launch was in Cyprus and Greece to celebrate the Greek Orthodox easter which is this week.
