No GSM 850! Won't be good for the North American Market... It's weird how they have 4Band for the Z3 and not this version. I would buy this phone the minute it comes out if it had all the bands. But given that I got dead zones already in the area where I live (Montreal) from my current triband... I guess I gotta look for another stylish sleek phone! =(
I wonder if it is because of the HSDPA... does that make up for the 4th band? I don't think so but if anyone knows, please explain!
Looks a great phone to me!
Ik like the looks and his applications!
But here in Belgium is said that motorola has many probs with their phones!
What do you People think: Should I buy this one or the iphone when it comes out in Europe?
And where can I find downloadable applications for symbian OS?
I Think the Z8 is going to be a big seller , it has great looks good functions and hope fully the price will be with in our reach. however i have compared the Z8 with the Z6 IN TERMS OF SPECS and it seem to me that the z6 is the better phone , with the longer talk time and so forth,i am i right about that or what
I wish they change the lime-ish green framings into red or something more.... austere...??
k im suck of this lakes make somthing clear.
Yhe nokia hade the first "banana" phone, aka the Matrix phone, big deal. but that could hardly be called a slider! The Nokia had a plastic cover over the keypad on the phone wich u could slide down. Instead of flipping up.
now a slider phone is splitt in two, and when u wanna type a sms, or make a call the phone "slides apart".
Now the Z8 aint the first Slider and frankly i dont care. Whats make this phone stand apart is the fact that it "snaps" when it slides and no other phone producers have deared to do that yet.
To those of u who argues over whos copying who, Get a life.
To those who say this phone sucks... get real and try the phone first. oh it aint on the market yet:P
I gonna get this phone, Why. It got all the cool stuff i need and want in a phone.
UIQ, 3G HDSPA, Bluetooth, memory cpacity, music player. A usable camerea. so forth.
Yhea a lots of other phones have this, but this phone have it with style.
And btw, to you who complains 'bout the 2 MP cam being to small.....
Go get yourself a Digital camara. It's way better.
I think the oldest banana slider phone is nokia 8110. This phone became famous when apeared in matrix.
Z8 is not the first Banana, Nokia 7650 first Banana with Symbian but I Love MOTO... When it launch???
I just wonder where did maxx v6 get the touch sensitive outer buttons from?????
any comments moto 2 little?
Who is copying? the answer, even if the RAZR is not longer a good phone it made history, and LG and other brands copied the design so I donīt doubt that LG is doing the same sorry no more comments and I donīt care about anything related to this subjet for now im waisting my time on this!
Sorry, If i wasnīt clear I was talking about the link below my comments!
As usual from LG or Samsung specially from Lg there is not originality for their design,no comments or questions! thatīs an affirmation. always the same stuff Iīm not impressed LG does it all the time rember after the RAZR! ja ja they donīt have imagination
lol, LG sux... Look at what they did =.=
Suddenly i found out that this fone is somewhat cool.... I'm losing faith for Z6...
nice powerful features but imo this is one heller chunky and ugly looking phone. I think i'd stick to buying the ROKR Z6 looks soo much sexier
Alan - you should be able to pick one of these up on eBay for around $US400 when they're available
I can't wait to get my hands on one of these. It looks incredible. Stylish, functional and 'solid'.
As for the brand war of previous post to this section.
IMHO, MOTOROLA are less reliable. I'm the only person I know who hasn't had to return a Motorola brand phone at least once. I've had the E398, V360 (loved that phone) and V3i (looks great but too wide for a flip - when you have dainty hands that is). But their Camera's are far superior to the ones Nokia put in their phones. The sound quality is miles better than Nokia, and they put a couple of actual 'ring tones' in amongst their pithy musical tones.
Dear old Nokia have woeful ring tones (I find myself in some very noisy environments in the couse of the day and need a good solid ring tone, something that can't be confused by music in supermarkets and stores or other phones ringing). Motorola also has easily attached peripherals (miniUSB) for when you're on the fly. Nokia's 2 pin jobbies are very difficult when you're driving at 100k+ and trying to get the headset connected so you can take a handsfree call or listen to the radio. I would prefer if they allowed speakerphone without the insertion of a headset first.
What Nokia does have that's superior tho is the menu. You can select, delete (or whatever) and confirm with the one button (without looking) unlike most other phone menu's, Motorola included, that makes you switch buttons for different functions. I've got a Nokia 6111 I love, but between inferior sound and camera quality and crappy ring tone I rarely use it, instead favouring my V3i.
I could go on, but I think I've covered my main gripes and bouquets.
