Let's not wait for this phone anymore friends and buy other alternatives. Neither Nokia nor anyone else has a clue on when it will be released :(((
No lens cover is an advantage! With a lens cover you can't take paparazzi photos now can you???
The lens is protected by a glass anyway so what's the problem?
WHATTT??!!! No LENS COVER???!
I have been watching out for this phone since Nokia announced it on their website. And I am planning to buy it as soon as it is available anywhere! However.. I only just realized TODAY, that the precious 3 megapixel camera is NOT protected by a cover!!! This is ridiculous!
I was deceived in thinking that the little shutter underneath the lens was a cover.. it's not! It's the macro function button of the camera.
Very sad.. :-(
I wasn't willing to wait for this phone for ever so I just placed an order for a SE W810i.
Hi first post - been following the progress of the N80 here for some time, and decided to get my own answer on when it will be available here in Australia (no idea about anywhere else.
Following is the email response from Nokia Australia:
"The N80 and N91 should be in store by mid May.
The N92 is still in testing with the carriers and therefore will not be in the AU market until late 2006/early 2007. Hope this helps."
That was at 4.26pm, last Friday, March 31.
Not the answer I wanted, but at least I now know I should stop waiting and go buy something else.
who / what shop will be the 1st to release this phone, "in the UK". well lets say it comes out on the 10th of april 1st network is vodafone that release it. O2 wait till 20th of April to release. Cam we not get it on pay as you do on simfree? to use it on O2?
i just buyed today the 6280 its not bad but could be made better, i think thats why n80 will be a good one at last!
n80 wont release until may in most asia countries, n only on certain network providers like 3 n vodafone only
Has anyone bought this N80 phone yet? Please, advise our European fellows. We are so unfortunate to be in North America with no dates on the phone. I am thinking of immigrating to Europe now.
Nonetheless, please guys tell us where we can buy this fabulous machine from...
does anybody think nokia will bring out a betetr battery for this phone?
hey, im from the philippines and i have been dying to get this phone for more than a month and ive researched about it like crazy...theyre releasing it in the Philippines around April...April 27, i think and it will be released at a high pricetag... $640 i aint sure but thats the best i have...It worth the wait and the cost...best smartphone so far.
Hey! I've heard it's coming on in the UK on o2, on the 15th May, I'm due for an upgrade then but wondering if anyone knows how much it might cost? Is it worth waiting for? x
well, think about your everyday usage of your phone. Do you type text messages with ease, without a qwerty keyboard? Do you have a collection of remote controls, garage door opener, car starter, etc which you wish to consolidate and use via your phone? If so, go with the N80. Thats what I'll be going for, if the bloody americans can figure out when they should follow our european friends, and finally release this:) SPeaking of which, does anyone have any new info on US release? This phone is definitely worth the wait.
Advise in whether to take e70 or n80... e70 has everything that n80 has but BETTER battery life and quervy but even if e70 was 10times better in features than n80, id still go for n80 coz it looks sooo much better
People I cant choose.....I dont know what to buy......nokia n80 or nokia e70....e70 is better with the strong battery and QWERTY...but n80 is better with 3-megapix camera and UPnP and with gabarits......HELP, someone!!!
whaoooooo !!! nice one.Nokia N80, when it would be release.I'm waiting for it.
Quater 1st is mid-may around the 15 or so...all i can say is that ive been waitin since a long time, i rather go for another phone ....
The features on the N80 are the best so far. Let's hope that the expectations of all die hard Nokia fans are fullfilled. Also, the distributors for Nokia in the UAE have said that the N80 will be available in the UAE towards the end of the month.
first they said Q1! Then first week of April... April 15th...April 20th....Now April 26th!!! When Can I buy it??? I DONT KNOW!
