Good news to you all that this phone it's possible to flash to Android. So all complains about WM6.5 are not important anymore. I have done it, and are using this phone for a couple of weeks. Indeed the battery life time of 30 days is now only 3 to 4 days.

Val, 24 Mar 2011Phihips V816 is designed only for China, any idea why?Because the real company who is releasing "Philips" phones is actually a China company, and maybe that company would prefer to conquer the local market. Staying local is a safe move, maybe the company doesn't want to take risks of going international.

Am I looking correctly?
Coming soon... WoW.
A 2004 cellphone for 2011.that's like a joke.
Even my grandma can not bear it.
Win 6.5 is what I need. Size is good.
If it has good processor (at least 500MHz) - I'll buy it!

Why are people talking bull about this phone? One has to take into consideration that it is designed for the asian market,hence no 3g and maybe win mobile 6.5... I'd like to side with the pro win mobile user earlier,because as it stands right now, windows phone 7 is a piece of crap:intended to work only with high-end(to be read expensive) devices, and not give the option for simply using whatever ringtone you choose to create on your own or receive by bluetooth.
Getting back to the matter at hand, this phone looks really cool and different from the current crop of touchscreen phones(samsung touch screen phones look pretty much the same and apple have brought no significant changes to what is their only phone in ages...five years I believe. My only regret is that philips doesn't make more smartphones since they have excelent battery performance.also a pitty is the fact that they don't market them outside of asia...
