good point but i dont think this will make the silver one cheaper, or at least not significantly cheaper
The release of the Black version for me is just to drop the price of the silver one. I can't deny that the Black N82 looks way smarter than the silver one (Silver N82 doesn't look like a new phone). But I don't need a phone that looks smart cuz I don't look smart at all. I just need a phone that makes me smarter ^.^ So, I hope Silver version will become a lot cheaper.
definitely, the color matters, im not only speaking for myself but to all people who are eager to get this phone and yet compelled to do so because of it's tin-like facade.
instead of asking around, why not send it to NOKIA CARE CENTRE. for sure they know what to do. you might cause more damage to your phone with that 'self-fixing' thing...
Perhaps one of you N82 gurus can help. I have an N93; the forerunner to all multifeatured N series phones. The optical zoom and autofocus has stopped working. If I apply OZ the slider appears on the screen and moves upwards but no zooming occurs. It is only when digital zoom is applied that zooming occurs. Do I need to hard reset (*7370#) or reflash the phone??
Don't worry guys, i'm sure they'll formally announced the N82 black version in the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Feb.11-14, 2008.
Posting after a lot of time...
N82 is definitely planned to be the next nokia flagship, trying to repeat the success of N73.
I am happy that a black version popped up without it being something like 'N82 Music Edition'.Black adds to the grace of N82 along with its xenon flash.
I yet still feel that N95 8GB will remain the king, even though it is WAY more expensive than this one, mainly due to the fact that its features is back with AN EXCELLENT DESIGN + AMAZINGLY high battery (1200).
The price itself of N82 tells us that its meant for the public at large, just like the N73, but i sure do hope that now music editions, sports editions dont crop up.
The colour does NOT matter! Its the amazing phone called N82 that matters.
I like the black one but will take the silver if it comes with 2GB and black with 128.
whats the big deal about the black one anyway?
i actually prefer the silver!
got this phone awhile ago.
it's awesome...still hot from the box...
really love it!
just a minor problem, signal flactuation beside that there is no problem!
ok heres the deal...i dnt care about the colors but black is not necesry.i would have been hapy if any other color was launched else any grly ones...and the thing is if its even 10$ expensive then bye bye...i dnt give a crap ANd FORGET ABOT ANY CHANGES IN FEATURES AND OUT OF BOX stuff..so if any above stuf hapns..thn sory i am hapy with the silver one.
Black was expected and there,Only color changed much better and well reputed will easily speed up demand lastely by june white color in market.The only annoying r the keys too tiny and do not look semetary on face.At present silver is cheaper by 50 bucks
"poor sardine-colored N82 users"...Dude all of us who purchased the N82-silver, never did comment or post any complain with our silver snappers (only praises!). We are more than satisfied on what we got, I for one am happy to know that the black version came out, this will only entice more people to get a N82 and experience what a truly magnificent phone this is. It does not matter if it's black or silver or white, it's all about owning a NOKIA N82!
does the black N82 use HSDPA 850/1900 or just the good old 2100 network? I hope if it's first launched in the US then it better designed for the NA market.
The black version is a welcome addition. At least we have a choice now: variety is the spice of life!
Is it true that the black version comes with only 128MB mem card?
If so then Nokia are not being fair to their customers. Why sell the silver with 2GB and the black with only 128? It doesn't make sense. It looks like one is being penalised for not choosing a sardine coloured phone!!
did someone hijack the nokia website this morning and replace the n82 silver with a black one? it's no longer available... :(
