Black N82 delayed to April =( I hope they are going to add something new to it, or else it would suck to wait all those time. I waited for the silver one to release in November/December 2007 and when I was about to buy it, I heard about a black version, so I decided to wait till February. And now guess what? Need to wait till April. I really hope I'm not waiting for nothing. I hope Nokia will add some new features to the black one.
I was ready to purchase the N82 but I just couldn't get around the color!!
When I heard about a black edition, it was if my prayers were answered, then I find out I can't purchase it in Canada, and now it is delayed all together.
The G810 is looking more and more appealing every day. I'm just hoping it doesnt take 10 years to come out.
I'm a young man with money to spend, cumon Samsung, let us get our hands on that G810 already!
I don't agree with Steve J regarding to the "weird-ness" of the N82 keypad. I understand that this design of keypad makes Nokia phone looks quite weird but I feel very convenient to use this keypad since my hands are big. If it kept the N73 keypad I may not be able to use it well. I bought it last week and now I can press the keys without looking at them.
i couldn't agree more. the whole design and color of N82 is a big mistake. it will never going to be a best seller like the N73. good thing samsung come up with G810 and sony ericsson's G900 which is now have touch screen. we do have a lot of options nowadays and that's great.
To be honest I have a serious problem with this phone. I have been to different shops and tested it on different occasions. I cannot get used to the keypad. The lack of tactile response. Look I text alot and I have to say the keypad is ridiculous. I am used to using N93 and my goodness, it is so comfortable. The N93 has to be one of the best keypads in any phone. To go from that to this N82 is a bad experience. Nokia continue to make glaring mistakes: the low powered battery in the N96; the awkward keypad in the N82; no touchscreen N series phones etc. I don't think I can buy this phone. I am seriously looking at Samsung G810.
instead criticizing the phone, please write down some useful stuff. can i install skype, because I downloaded the skype for smartphones and it is not functioning. can i connect to the internet through the usb. I realy need some help. please tell me about some new features. my e-mail is email@example.com please please somebody help me
I did my research and the Black N82 will be delayed until April... No one knows why?
>Possibly a NAM edition?
>Give time for the NAM N95 to sell?
Personally, this really annoys me but w/e
thats were SE win...with better Headsets in the retail package and USB cable:P
Tell me why nokia stupidly put mediocre headset in the retail package of such pricy phone (yeah i know it has 3.5 plug) what the hell did those think of when put such miserable headset?! Look at all nokia headsets give me just one good.. No way
if the fools at nokia didnt learn how to make quality headsets then they should expect alot of cretism & blame.. It got me crazy when i put such price 4 a phone with such headset..
Nokia please show some respect to your customers
key pad not good to type.....very difficult to type..thts the only draw back....nokia never gives everything good....ther will be something bad about
is the black version gonna be any different than the white version any diff in functions or any thing????
you know what's great about samsung G810? its like having a nokia n82 in a beautifully crafted body! hell yeah!
hi.i bought my n82 a week ago i entered the lock code and verify it then when the mob locked it self and i wrote the lock code (code erorr)appears,wut can i do?? wanna help plz
why is it that nokia didn't releases two colors at the same time? i like the black one but i've got the silver one because there is no available black in the market, how to download n-gage games into my n82?
I am waiting for the black version, this is by far the phone of the year!
where does it say that the n82 black will be out in april? what site?
@koko Yes you can install msn and skype on the phone. In fact i installed it myself. There are alot of applications for this phone. All you need is to look for symbian os s60 3rd edition applications. They've been out for months since the n81 as well as the n95-3 is a s60 3rd edition too. Download and install via pc suite that is offered with the phone.
@ Kevin from chinatown
and it should say the device software. Mine is v.10.0.046 i tried updating it but nokia says they haven't released any updates yet. Don't be expecting any soon until the n82 black comes out. Might be a n82-2.
I just got the n82 last week. Awesome phone. But battery tends to die out pretty quickly if you're using wifi and gps alot. Recommend you getting a second battery.
Battery life usage (10hour span):
-woke up using the alarm (5mins)
-went to school listening to music (1 hour)
-surfed on wifi during class (3hours)
-(listened more music after class while waiting for the bus to a hockey game (2hours)
-called my friend to see if he would come (30mins)
-recorded (20 min video of the first period)
-took 10 pictures with xenon flash on
-called my friends about the game (1hour)
-listening to music dozed off on the bus and got lost (1 hour)
-used gps to find my way home because buses stop running after midnight(30mins)
-still listening to music and then battery died (30 mins later)
Not bad battery life. Although a 1200mah battery would make things alot better.
Also i found out that if you left bluetooth and wifi on for 4hours straight your battery would run out too. Good phone overall. Not quite liking the style but its a good phone. I was going to wait for the black n82 but they delayed that till april. So might as well wait for the n82-3 =).
