i think this smartphone is great to peolple that needs this kind of smartphone, if not thats not a good phone.
G-R-E-A-T Phone! It's The Best Smartphone Out There!! No Problems At All (Besides Minor Bugs), Good Camera, Good Quality Mp3 Player (I use An OGG Player I Downloaded!), Decent Battery Life, Good Reception. RECCOMANDED!! But Only For Smartphone Lovers. (It's Not Small, But Smaller Then Most Smartphones Outthere).
PinkPanther- Yes, this is true, but since I had my flip replaced, I don't think it was put on quite straight, and I had to push the buttons a bit harder to register a key press. Hence breaking another one. Since then, I have detached the flip, and am using the virtual flip - much easier! Although, thanks to OptusWorld who gave me a replacement flip for free the 2nd time *blush*
Ya, looks like the plastic tabs on the flip are not as solid as they look, but it's also true that if you don't snap the flip closed too hard they should last longer.
Found out how to attach wrist strap - there's a little doover under the cover for the battery.
Now, is anyone else having their little plastic tabs on the flip snap off - I've been through 2 flips so far and have only had it since last May!
Great phone, but lacks some small touches that my T39 had.
The good :- battery life, ok camera, in-built aerial, hand writing recognition (like palm), Bluetooth, IR, Huge screen, large memory (and removeable), Full outlook synch, Symbian to install handy utilities (some free if you look round), GPRS, synch emails and most attachments etc etc.
Not so good :- No profiles, alarm and reminders only work when phone switched on, no voice commands (other than voice dialling), be prepared for the size and weight, not managed to connect laptop to GPRS yet, speaker phone too quiet, flip performs no function (only speakerphone).
It's probably one of the best phones around. Shame it lacks some functions of the "antique" T39.
just got my P800 for £250 off eBay - BRAND NEW - what can i say? superb phone and is smaller than i thought - nice one!
I just bought the phone, but i tell you it just more than a phone, everything about the design and functionality is just superb, particularly the extra 3 stylus, another thing would have been to provide extra flip cover(dail pad).
When I thought that really well-done mobiles are no more to be found on the market I was not aware of the things P800 can do. Recently got one and my advice is definetly go for it, you won't be dissapointed. Even the design leaves no space for compromises; overall it looks and feels like it was built for the military, you know that stuff that boring users never have access to, precision to the last detail. Real nice piece of work, I'm getting my hopes up again for the future of mobiles. Well done, SE.
For the questions under:
Yes there is a night mode for the integrated camera, and yes, it can read handwriting such as for sms composing.
It really can read handwriting? Or just saving it as an image? Humm...can wait to get one....
is their a night version on its camera? can i personalise the text message alert? thnx!
i am really intrested in your products i would like to buy in bulk,because i am into the buying and selling of gsm mobile phone and i believe your products are going to be just what i need stir my business enterprise.please get in contact with me through my e.mil addresse.thanks and god bless
got to say, anyone who tries to compare this to a nokia (6600 or otherwise) has no idea what this phone is really about, and definitely hasn't used one in anger. everything else is just a toy compared to the p800. this and the p900 are the only true smartphones.
Picking up on a couple of points here - yes, there is software available to edit Word and Excel. It's called Quickoffice Premiere, and costs about £22 (from the SE/Handango site). As for getting MP3's onto the phone, you just drop it into the PC syncstation (which comes in the box) and drag and drop whatever files you like into it. Alternatively you can use a cheap USB card reader and write straight to the memory stick.
The P800 is an incredible phone, the P900 is only slightly better. Both are light years ahead of the market.
