absolute must have;if u have the bucks of course!!
great design.. wonderful features.. one of the best ever from nokia!!
am definitely gonna get 1
emailed nokia asking for the official launch date of n80 and they said, there's still no exact date of its launching.
do you think it's possible that this will be released this dec or early jan since (i think) it's already on its final stages...
if it will be released only a few weeks after the w900i, i think those that are still undecided might wait for this one..
Does this phone zoom 20x also in the video or no? and should i wait for it or buy SE w900?
March 2006? That's about the same time that Sony P990 is slated for release. Fight for the century. I love the N80. If only it has a touchscreen. It would make surfing webpages so much more convenient. But all in all, it's a great phone ahead of it's peers' time. However, I had thought it would be launch towards January, since it was said to already have FCC's approval. But then, Nokia had announced N91 way ahead of N80, so they would have to release N91 first and let it sell for 1 to 2 months before releasing N80, so I guess March 2006 sounds reasonable.
i agree with you, the price is reasonable (if it will be really around $600 - $700 range) unlike with Sony Ericsson W900i that cost $940, which gives you only 2mpx cam, no WLAN, no uPnP, dimensions are big & heavy, not symbian, not EDGE, and overall design of W900i totally sucks big time, it looks like a brick! the ratings of N80 speaks for itself! when N80 hits shelves, few people will buy W900i coz of its hefty price!
mayday147:You be sure that you'll have to pay extra for video calls. Isn't it normal? In what world do you live?
ok.. i live in anaheim hills,california, US
and does anyone know the release date for US
Cost for this is going to be approx. $675 US..not bad considering the specs
Can someone tell me plz, in the video recording can it also zoom 20x zoom? or 5x zoom? and i have a nokia 7610 do u think i should wait for this phone or get the SE w900???

It's Official N80 will be released 1st week of March 2006....3mos. to go guys!
GREatest FONE EVERRRRRRRRR made by NOKIA!I will buy this phone by abt 8 months when it comes here in india and its price goes down!
my only question is if i have to pay extra for video calls
like do i have to pay more for a plan so i can use the video call feature????????
cuz if i do the video call is pointless!
unless its really cheap...
I am stoked for this phone. Apparantly the FCC just announced their approval for this phone with Cingular. They are saying Q1 2006! I hope so!
N80 will sell millions already because of its beautiful design, and also has some very advanced technology, definitely a big hit.
Hey guys. this phone looks brill. 3 mp cam and a sexy looking fone but has anyone seen the talk time on this phone. i mean come on. this phone has 3 hours talk time. so by the time u have done anything to this fone i.e text, call someone you would have to chrage the phone up again. this phone in my eyes is one of th ebest on the market but i think nokia still need to do some fine tuning to there ideas. 3 hours talk time suck. COME ON NOKIA SORT YOUR LIFE OUT. im sorry to all you nokia fans out there but i will be getting the sony ericsson w900i. that to me is a class phone. if anyone wants to disagree with me BRING IT ON lol cos i know wot will sell and the NOKIA N80 will not.
the FCC tested and approved the N80 for cingular! here are some pics:
this is the manual.. 120 pages!
and this is the full story:
I can't wait anymore,
ps I am a TMobile user, so I'm going to have to figure out how to unlock the damn thing, if somehow I buy it from Cingular...
The N80 user guide and pictures are out! Check out the "View Attachment" under the Users Manual and N80's user guide in full can be seen! Does that mean it is going to come out in January since everything is out already? It's tested by the FCC, not sure what that is, if someone cares to explain, but it's a testing facility. They show pictures and details of the testing of N80 too. So exciting! Hopefully it will be released in January! Cross my fingers. But it's a bit weird. N91 was announced before N80 but has not been released. I wonder if they will release N80 before N91. I don't mind that. I love the N80!
well .. so far so good .. the only think that i didnt like about it is the thickness of the phone .. i think its designed like a box .. without any ovals or curves .. waiting eagerly for the cost of this smarty..
