Unless they have a faster CPU than the freescale 369mhz and omap 2420 dual cpu @330mhz used in current generation they will find it hard to compete with devices from htc, palm, rim etc i hope they use at least a 400mhz cpu like n810.
Some of the comments on this site are so annoying!
Anyway, I have no desire for QWERTY so 5800 is good for me, however the 32GB internal memory would rock!
Nort to be surprised by the date. This is the date they release flagship devices. The n95 was released ears exactly 2 years ago on this date.
why such in a hurry nokia?
afraid of losing?
why not release it next year? haha
t lee direct ;), 19 Jan 2009does anyone know which uk networks this phone will be available on first?hey ...UK has t.mobiles..service
Probably be available on Vodafone first, also don't trust Play.com, they normally charge more than other retailers for high value products so the price'll probably go up in the coming weeks.
Looks like Nokia is holding off on showing their entire hand this year until after the N97 is released. Seriously, it doesn't look like that big of a performer. A communicator replacement with an N badge... probably not the best placement for it. This probably should have been an E91, but the lack of quality in the OS probably caused them to steer clear of the E-moniker less they piss off people like they did with the hardware faults in the E90. What's next, Nokia? This is hardly your flagship. Very few N95 owners will be happy with this form factor. I want to see what's next.
Could this be an April fool? Prices for flagship Nseries are usually higher than that..
having had the blessed oppurtunity of holding this master piece i can say it is worth every penny im flying down too uk just too pick up my toy cant wait
sudenly i feel my nokia n81 getting old. I'm gonna buy 5800 when n97 come out. I bet nokia touch ui (5800/n97)when nokia roll out n97.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2009On play.com it says 'Due for release on 31/03/2009', however, i reckon it will get delayed.Play.com make up all sorts of sh*t about release dates.
I don't think this really counts as a confirmed release date. Websites put up dodgy release dates all the time. If one were to take these as an official announcement, Final Fantasy XIII would be out by now. Sorry but it touches a nerve.
I was expecting this to come out some time in june but thank you very much Nokia. You're the best!
