Hi it's Richard again. Apologies I'm not 100% sure that CPW will release on 26th Jan, but the employee did tell me that it is due for release then & they'll give me a call. Obviously anything can happen & of course if release is delayed then they may not know that. I must say that I've had a Sony Erricson V800i for last 12 months & it's the 1st time I've come to end of contract & still been very happy with the phone! Richard Mid Wales.
Richard are you sure about that? I can't find anywhere else on the net which says carphone warehouse are releasing it on the 26th :\
it's only ten days time! We're hardly gona have to wait too long :p
Im getting n80 v3x doesn't have such a good screen (quality/resolution), doesn't have WIFI or UPnP (which are n80s key features) and N80 has 3mpx compared to v3x 2mpx!
wow really! 26th damn thats not so long :D
Im from England I guess it will be out here too in carphone warehouse on the 26th jan?
Today spoke with CPW & was told they're due to stock the phone from 26/01/06. So it appears it's coming sooner then some people suggest.
I was thinking of getting the V3X but will probably hold on for the N80. What do other people think on waiting for it? Richard in Mid Wales.
To Jo - i wasn't comparing d600 with n80. what i'm saying is d600 has less features lower resolution display etc..and has higher capacity 950mAh battery. " they used a 820 one to make it smaller!" again - d600 is even smaller than n80 so how come they managed to fit 950mAh? anyways, i like n80 very much and therefore it drives me up the walls that nokia almost always cripple their great phones with lousy batteries. btw - d600 is a great phone too.
wdxp,the reason why they don't have the lens and auto focus is because they want the N90 to sell, and if the N80 phone had all that, who would buy the N90?
I've read reviews from a number of people who had prototypes, and none of them said anything about problems with the screen. Infact, they all said how good the screen was, because the screen will be the most high resolution screen any mobile phone has.
The camera is already very good. If you want a top quality camera why don't you buy yourself a nice 10 mpx digital camera?
Can anyone tell me any specific bugs the N80 is said to have? I've read peoples comments about the units that are currently out having problems with the screen. Will my 1 year warranty take care of the bugs? And any reason why Nokia decided to not add a Carl-Zeiss lens or auto focus on what seems to be the most compact and beautiful smartphone?
What UMTS frequency are they gonna use for this phone??
To kiff. they used a a 820 one to make it smaller!, and don't compare the d600 with the n80. the d600 is just cheap fashion thing compared to this =)
to InVaDer: hmm man you are wrong in mobilereview have a proto and they say its comming at the end of february - mid march it will be worldwide available
that wifi problem you are talking about is just a lie, nokia already made wifi phones before they know a bunch about it already.
the Li-Ion 820 mAh battery sux big time. even samsung d600 which has less features, no OS, lower screen resolution, is smaller, lighter...has better 950 mAh battery. i don't really get this, why they have to ruin such a nice phone in such a stupid way. f**k you nokia.:(
Doesn't say anywhere on the internet n80 has been delayed... where did u find that out? Or are you just sayin that to piss ppl off?
Bad news for everybody. It will be shifted to the second quarter. The device is delayed until
April at least! Problems are now occuring, the same as with the N91. I think
it are Symbian v9.1 problems, which SE has also. Wifi and BT implementation
gives extra issues.
Question for anyone who knows about UPnP technology:
If you got a upnp compatible tv set, can u plug ur fone in and it will display whatever is on the screen? For example if i had sky being broadcast by 3G to my n80, could i use upnp to stream it to my tv? So then i could watch sky on my home tv?
i never used orange. Im gona get it on vodafone live, because then u can get tv broadcast to your fone by 3g! I just found this out.
For £3 a month u can get some good channels, sports, movies, channel 4, exreme sports and fashion
or for £5 a month u can get sky movies, mtv, music channels and some other channels
I prolly get the basic £3 a month cos otherwise it gets a bit expensive. 3g tv on vodafone is available on pay as u go or pay monthly whatever u want!
Cheers CMV! Which carrier is likely to get it first? I'm with Orange at the minute, and realise that they're not always the sharpest at getting new kit into the showrooms.....
lyall it will be out before may! It's either coming out feb or march in the UK. Nokia have said first quarter of 2006. That ends in march so it can't be May! It might even be end of january lol
I know the N92 is better for watching tv on, because it has DVB-H tv broadcasting. But the other features aren't as good and it also isn't so good looking as the N80.
Surely there is a way u can watch TV on the N80? 3G broadcasting? or through WLAN from a computer? Someone who knows answer this please! Also is it possible to get TV broadcasting through 3G on some networks and not others? and how expensive is this?
And D-Tox my ass u work for nokia rofl
