it's really all about that most ppl here used to nokia interface already. hence they can't bear the trouble of learning new interface. just like moving from win98SE or window2000 to window XP.
Some complain that T68 is slow, damn slow which i think they must have lightning fast finger especially when doing sms. I also dunno what's the big deal about a tiny fraction slower response with T68. as if it comes to an end of the world. If you want a faster communication just call him/her instead of using sms.
Anyhow nokia phone especially the 8310 isn't really something new or spectacular, approx the same software as the 8210 series. nothing major have change and even in terms of hardware. Somehow i just wonder what's so special about that phone. Compare to T68, 8310 is just a lame and basic phone with a cheap inbuild MONO FM radio????? i can do much better than that with other cheap radio.
These opinions are unbelieveble ! ! If you are dedicated Nokia lover and there for enjoying frequent trips to the next Nokia workshop and getting crappy service,
Then you should NOT be rating this phone for fxxk sake. Why are Nokia users "loosing it" over this phone? Come on, people ! The "specs" on this phone (compered to size) are simply unmatched by any other mobile, including Nokia, except it ! And also except that it WORKS like a charm. Simply look at the ratings on this website and others. ( talking about ratings, Nokia people should not even go there, sorry !)
I like many Nokia models and I own a few, but I also own a T68 and its my best mobile so far. Nokia might come out with a better model later. So please, you Nokia fanatics out there, rate your own damn mobiles and reserve your time rather for E-mailing Nokia H.Q. demanding better service ! You KNOW, as every Nokia user old or new knows, that you need it.
If there are any real owners of a T68 out there, then congratilations ! ! - You know what I mean :)
Great phone, its got all the features that all nokias dont except the 83, u cant compare with the 92 because thats a fucking office organiser u idiot, i love the different control and look which nokia can never seem to overcome in their overcommon models, a great phone overall.
right now the t68 if you´ve got money to spend is the best mini phone!and don´t compare it with the 9210,cause 9210 is something else!what i can say is that the t68 is much better than the 8310,what i´m going to miss is the currency converter that the t68 hasn´t gotand the radio nothing else
9210 is a combination of a conversional PDA/phone. If you want a PDA, then buy it.
As a phone it suffers many of the new functions that you expect from a phone priced that high, plus it's very big and heavy.
T68 on the other hand givs you all you can expect from a phone (plus more), it's light, but it doesn't offer the function of a PDA (and costs less)
first off it's always better if you give it a try yourself. 9210 seems to bulky to me. T68 can never replace 9210 because of much less function. but it should be able to last most people until 3G. go to a shop and give it a play
ok peter thanks (gia tin simbouli)
also this is for thomas jenkins
i didin't expecting you to say me that this phone hasn't any problem at all. i new it from the first moment that it came to greece. i just wondering that:: if in the end of the year 2001 we have this perfect mobile phone that wheights 84gr it has a color screen it also has 3 mb memory* bluetoth , gprs , mms ems sms and all the others and its full upgratable what we will have in a year? and i am thinking know is it worthing to wait?
and as i see the anwser is no.
i am on the verge of buying this new t68 but im having second opinions about it Which one is more satisfying T68 Or 9210 which one would u rather have tell me please thanx
jeph can you tell me the link where it says a newer model of T68 is to be announced next year?
re oxin rain ksexna to peiramatiko sony ericsson tha argisei!!!3 trimino tou 2002!!!kai blepoume!!!
what i heaered is only a roumer from a special ericsson site. so nothing is sure yet , but i think this is a must if ericsson wanted to be the leader. but what i can advice and im sure about that u can wait till 1Q 2002, for an upgraded version of it, which will has some missing options which are mentioned on the official site, and are not on the latest one , lik:
extra calender( it has only the normal one now)
and to shot a short clip with the cam( but i think t68 has it now:),,
so if u cant wait, u r not a heavy phone user , and u think these options or some of them u dont need, u can go for it now...
its still spuerb, no phone on the market can be compared to it , and mabye for long time, u have to use it, and it will really satisfy u... it has options which u dont even thought about it ...
also for the new stuff u will get most of them later , cuz u can upgarde the software when its available..
one last thing , dont listen to ppl who says its bad phone , the joysteck is bad and the battery is not good , ,,, etc,,
its something percentage, so thats why they give us warnty , so we can change the bad one , with a good new one..
if u like the mobile, and i wanted it , go and buy it... and u will thank me for this:)
well i am wondering if i should take the new t68 or wait for the new phone that sony ericsson will make . what do you think ? is it worthing waiting ?
also this is for >
to be hounest, i liked this phone from the firt time i saw it on the net, and im one who likes ericsson little bit more than anyphone , but i agree to take other brand if it was good, when i first saw this phone on the market i liked it more, its superb , very hi tech, and it has everything u want and more, but i was little bit disapointed with the color , i expected something better, but its ok after all , just think its the first mobile with color , so its first of its kind, and the nokia is at least 6 months far to be seen on market , so i think 6 months is more than enoagh to make new things, specailly with mobile world..
also it seems that ericsson rushed with this phone to win the market , and as i heard there is a roumer that there is an upgraded version will be released directly after the 7650 , which will has the same missing option which 7650 has , specially the color , but after all, i think the phone is still spuerd, use it and u will know this..
I have been using the Ericsson T68 four weeks now. I started off really liking the phone, it was different in look to most of the other mobiles out at the time and the fact it had a colour screen seemed that it would be work better as a personal organiser with its higher quality screen. The problem is, it does look nice'ish on the web and in the pictures, but when you actually get the phone and use it for a week or so you kind of go off it ( or I did at least ). Its just that the shape kind of irritates you after a while and that silly joystick-button is absolutely awful to use! The buttons (and it seems to have been said already - so its not just my handset) are really tacky/cheap that feel as though they will break after some heavy texting. Its not really customisable beyond the screen-background, so you can't make the phone your own - with no changeable covers (ahhh, the love of nokia). So, after yearning so badly for a Nokia again I exchanged it for the Nokia 8310 and 2 covers. I now have a phone that feels wonderful to touch and is a great fashion product too. The T68's are going to age very quickly I think in terms of look-and-feel. I'm more than happy with my 8310 for several reasons I shall not go into here. If your not a fan of Nokia, then check out some of the other phones that are available, because the T68 is a phone you may regret having bought.
well 6 month ok i still can't tell then. but honestly i now hardly use the joystick cause i always use the keypad which is so much faster. and even in the menu selection i also use keypad cause with 8 lines of text how much more options are there that you can't see?
Hi! I´m from Portugal and I must say that the Ericsson T68 is making rather sucess here dispite it´s cost! But we the portuguese are great critics and the problem with the 70 caracteres when your writing an SMS using T9 it´s destroying the T68!!!!!!!!! I´ve heard from a guy that works in Ericsson here in Portugal that in the year 2002 there´s going to be an upgrade that will "cure" this bug and add some awsome stuff like Chat, Caller photo and the long expected Image Gallery! Have you heard any thing about this in your contrys?
