I don't understand people bashing this phone based on it's feature set. It's meant to be a stylish phone that people buy because of the materials, looks, etc.
Look, I can buy a $20 Timex watch that has all of the bells and whistles that you could want in a watch, but it's made out of plastic. Or, I could spend $5000 on up for a Rolex, that I buy because of the name, the materials, the look etc. Same idea with this phone.
If you want wifi, touch screen, etc... buy a G1 or an iPhone.
Not even half as good looking as the Nokia 8800! Btw, No 3G?! Just leave it for the American buyers then...
The price is $2000, Im not kidding, I looked into this phone for my girlfriend. $2000!!! NO WAY
Michel, 23 Oct 2008It's just a communications device, so the look of the phone is as relevant as the smell of the... moreany damn joe or merry would use apple or some other touch phone...I like to be different...cost will go down if you wait about 6 month after release!
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008Why is this phone expensive. It's a piece of junk (NOT BASHING THIS BRAND!) compared to other... moreI am sure you don’t drive ANY luxury car. Neither Do I. But then I don’t question why pay 100k on a car when you can get 5star fully loaded Kia for 20k? Product like this are meant for upper market segment…not like Apple or G1.
It wont be for everyone like Apple. and thats very good for some of us! Its going to be about 1500 to 2000 for its costly crafty material.Since almost everyone, even my maids, keeps apples and those touch boxes, I would for sure want somehting extra ordinary and unique beauty. At this cost I am sure those who eats apples wont be able to match this orange. and I love to eat orange.
i don't know about when it will get launched..but i can tell you the price of this cell it will cost you upto 7-8 thousands......!! not that good phone as lookwise it is cool...!!
No ... it really doesn't have anything as a phone , but 8800 ( carbon or saphirre) has many things for people who want the mid of luxury and features . there isn't any reason to buy this product .( these are just my opinions ! )
maybe i will buy it in 3 years, when it will be really cheap.... lol =))
1.500 euro?!!!!! OMG!!
i would love to buy this but it's just too expenisve!
:-( anyway..... it really is BEAUTIFUL !
i will definitely buy this phone when this comes out!!! when will this be available??
Rouxenator, 22 Oct 2008Why is people so obsessed with how phones and electronics look ? It is a communications device... morethe fact that your english is terrible dosent help this opnion of yours. The way a phone looks is quite important to alot of people, as they pick their phones based on looks. As most things you want your house to look good, your car etc... so people want their phone to represent them and look good.
Your not going to get a phone that looks like a dead rodant are you? I rest my case.
Btw this phone looks good and i think it might be a good seller when it is realesed.
Arrgghh! Why no WiFi?!! It's a MUST nowadays. No GPS can be forgivable but the absence of WiFI?!.. I can't take it anymore. Why Moto always a step lags behind others? An 'A' for Stylish, but an 'F' for functionality.
