wclyffe: Wow are you complaining about using the keypad that pretty much EVERY other phone has and have ever had for the last 20 years? Where have you been in this period of time exactly?? And you need an extra battery to type SMS messages? You must be an incredibly slow typer then! I guess you have never heard of the dictionary feature which phones these days tends to have either. It prevents you from having to press multiple times on a button. Awesome huh? Anyway, how anyone can have trouble using the keypad on mobilephones is beyond me...
You don't need a phone. You need a PDA. Or maybe a 1 year memebership for "SMS types for dummies" lessions.
"please please please
whats the price??????"
If it will stop you from posting these type of questions again, I will make up a number. How does $1,000 sound? People can tell you anything they want about the price, but it will ultimately be up to the vendors that sell it that will determine the price. You have two options, call all of them and ask how much they will selling it for OR wait until it comes out, and SEE the price on all the vendors websites. Me personally, I'm going with the second chose.
Okay, I've read as many of these posts as I can take about the Nokia N80 from bad photos to bad battery life, but my biggest worry is this: I really like the commbination of all the elements on this phone, but for a smartphone that is suppose to be about COMMUNICATING, why is there no reasonable way to write and send an email....no grafitti, no Qwerty keyboard, etc. Are we really suppose to press each key a few times to get the right letter. If that's the case, you will definitely need a few extra batteries!!
i love the idea of this phone, it has all the features in the world that u would want and proably the best camera that u can get on a phone
can somebody tellme when it come out...i cant wait
I am wondering which phone this was suppose to go up against on the Ericsson side, because if it is going against the P990, the 3 hour talk time vs. the 9 hour talk time on the P990 (at least that is what it says on the Sony Ericsson website) really puts the N80 at a serious disadvantage. I would hope the N80 would be at least $100 (preferably more) cheaper (in order to cover the cost of getting a second battery).
Well at least N80 is on 850MHZ band, and since P990 is on 900MHZ band (and I have no interest in switching to T-Mobile) I guess I will be siding on the N80 side. At least until a P990a comes out in the States (or a N-series like the N80, but with a decent battery life).
ac: I know it has good soundquality since it has Nokia Xpress Music. Also, people i know with prototypes have reported that the soundquality is very good. It will probably stay like it is for the final version... either imporve, or stay as it is. I know for sure it wont be worse than it currently is.
"Nokia N80i will be coming out in November 2006. It has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, Bluetooth Version 12.0, Infrared, Mini Vacuum integrated and has a secondary 1.3megapixel camera for 3g calls. N80i will have carl zeiss optics with vibration and
20 x optical zoom. N80i will be available around the world for approximately 550 euros."
Only 1.3 megapixel secondary camera, common, if you are going to stuff up, at least throw in a 3 megapixel secondary camera. Can we also get night vision and x-ray on it? All that with a half hour talk time, and 12 hour stand-by time :)
And you belive Mark? If you do you´re the most stupid man on the planet!
If the phone have 5 inch display it will have dimensions 1m X 1m and it will weight 1kg right? I´m cidding but you wont be able to cary it in you´r pocket, that´s for sure. And what are you going to do with 1,3mp camera for video calls? You wont need it because no phone have a 1,3mp display so the person you are talking to vill see halv or mybe a quater of that. So what´s the point?

I wouldn't be so sure like you on an unreleased product such as its sound quality. But its good to have faith in something which you like 8). Sound on se walkman series are indeed good imo is indeed good as compare to nokia current available models. And indeed as like you said, stereo playback from headset is more important than dual speakers on the phone since mostly will be listening to to thier music using a headset instead of blasting the music out loud in the public.
As overall, n80 is not a bad product. The only drawback will only be its weak battery life and a camera which does not have autofocus function. Talk time of 3 hours is kinda poor and the battery will die even faster if you are using the phone for multimedia purpose or video streaming. And I not sure whether the battery is replaceable by higher mah battery or not. I think all should better hope it can be done. And the 3mp camera is good but without auto focus, I am quite sure the shot taken won't be as clear and sharp as those with autofocus. It is quite a waste for a high mp camera without auto focus function.
Imo, n80 would be a better buy compare to n92. The dvd-h video streaming on n92 is a good feature but I not sure how its availability as well. I don't think the service is available in the place where I am which is in the asian region. And with the extra weight, many will think that its quite bulky, which including me.
Now I just hope that n80 and se p990i would be on sale asap so I can see how both phone performs against each other to decide which 1 to buy. For the moment I would have my choice on the se p990i
This phone is really good. It has a lot of features. But the only thing worng with it is it doesn't have a spring for sliding up. I was thinking to get this phone buy then it looked like a toy. So people who like phones that slide up with a spring don't buy this phone
San: N80 has mono speaker, N92 has stereo speakers. What I'm saying is that stereospeakers is basically the same thing as monospeakers since you cant get the stereo effect through speakers that are right next to eachother. Both phones support stereo through the headset though (which is NOT useless! That's VERY important).
N80 will have (pretty much) the same soundquality as SE K750i,W800i,W810i. I havn't heard how these sound though... All I know is that N80 has near CD quality. In other words, VERY good. But you should use a headset other than the one which comes with the phone.
I'm on N80's side btw. Though I'm not really trying to talk bad about N92, since it's an awesome device as well. I'm just saying that N80 is a better choice since it has more features and its smaller too. N92 has tv and thats nice and all, but N80 also has tv through 3G + alot better features overall.
Thank you for trusting me :) I've done alot of research on this phone since when it first got announced by nokia and I know quite alot about it. It will be my next phoe as well. It's certainly a safe bet. And don't belive people that talk bad about this phone. 100% of it is prototype stuff that will be fixed (like cameraquality etc.).
http://www.carphonewarehouse.c...NODE_ID=7898 says its expected may and on this page are some other phones and there expected due dates
lol N80i ha ha ha ha
never 3 RD N series SERIES
coming end of 2006 early 2007
all wid 3 MEga pix Camara sorry
what are you saying then?N80 is better?which one has stereo speakers?
does that mean the sound will be as good as other phones are (SE K750i,W800i,W810i)or worse??
i'm really lost here and i dont know which side are you talking now!!......
to get to the point,what do you think of N80 cause i am planing to get and you sound understandable person,i'll trust what you say about it.
Oh and when do you guys think this phone would be in markits,it has been along time since they put in the cooming soon phone so i guess it should be out soon (month or 2 at most) isnt that right>????
Looks realy great. 3Mpixels on te camera is very good and symbian S60 is the best OS with a lot of software available. I think that nokia should only release S60 phones.
Will the n80i be out b4 summer? u not got any pics?
