Tiran, 30 Apr 2009is this phone has dual sim cardIt's 3 sim card fone buddy!!!
The price mentioned in the review is around 450 dollars. I just saw this phone on sale in Dubai today. 650 dollars!! Is this a rip off or what?
I got this fone on tuesday, its really good, no problems with it at all, and its cheap! Thanks natalie from carphone warehouse for sorting this out 4me x
Hi All ,
I've had the phone for a week now and its great.
Can anyone tell me how you can forward on text messages etc.
Just because it looks like th eiPhone does not mean it is meant to compete against it. The iPhone is a computer trying to be a phone. The Arena is a phone pure and simple.
No video recording
No hotswapping of memory card
No replaceable battery
No video calling
and a screen with around half the pixels of the Arena
It seems to me that in everbody's race to catch iphone, they are only working the multimeda and harware angle. Is that really wha iphone is about? I mean dont get me wrong, this phone is great, but would it not be better with Android or Windows mobile?
Here is my reasoning. The strength of iphone to me is the apps. Soooo many to chose from, and they basically got the whole world developing for them. So to make a fone that even comes close you have to match that somehow. This fone uses its own S Class UI, but they just dont have the position to be able to put out a SDK and have developers swarm it like they did Apple. It will simply be ignored. At least Android and WinMo have some apps and customisability.
I mean i like it, for pure multimedia its awesome, but i cant fork out all that cash for a fone that will only run j2me apps, its just not worth it. I would consider the Samsung omnia HD more of a viable iphone competitor, but i bet even that one won't get much developer attention using that s60 interface. The next big thing will happen either on Android or WinMo. If they had developed it with one of those operating systems, it would have been perfect!
