David, dear David. Have you EVER heard of scientific and impartial judgement of things? You list things and obviously look everything through SE coloured glasses. Like many though, even Nokia fans.
Let's see few thing in your list:
Screen. SE wins (I agree)
40 voice midi. SE wins (what's the point with MP3 ringtones, well SE doesnt have that though, BIG -)
Cheaper. SE wins (really? you must be CEO of SE to know the price. Usually SE is SExpensive)
Platform. SE wins (matter of taste)
Interface. SE wins (matter of taste)
Radio. SE and Nokia wins (I agree)
Intern memory. SE wins (6230 comes with 32 mb MMC, where do you need this?)
Externe memory.Nokia wins (look above)
Videoplayer. SE and Nokia wins (have u used both)
MP3 player. SE and Nokia wins (Nokia wins hands down, you cant get more than a couple of songs into SE)
Inbeuild camera VGA. SE and Nokia wins (have u used both)
Quality MP3 player.SE wins (come on!)
Quality Video player.SE wins (come on!)
Theme's. SE wins (come on!)
Build quality. SE wins (have u used both)
Not to forget...Listening to MP3 songs via bluetooth??? = stupid = gonna hurt the battery pack life. On your bluetooth to try out surfing the net via PDA, etc etc... Your phone will NOT last more than 2 hours. not to mention MP3 songs... I had a HP2210 and tried out bluetooth. High power consuming. If u know what is bluejacking, u would understand the rate of draining your battery life.^^
Lastly to add one more point. What's the use of a big screen with TFT 65K colour? To see more things? Sure. I agree that most ppl like that. But reconsider that it will also eat into that small energy brick behind the phone and it will drain out your battery life faster. What's the point of holding a phone where the battery's life is not "friendly" enough to suit your lifestyle on the move. Charging your phone everyday? Buy and bring extra batt out where ever u go? Get a life! Although the screen for Nokia is small, it is at a reasonable and legible size. I believe that the battery life for Nokia will not disappoint the fans.^^
SE Phones are great! No doubt. Especially the S700. But the idea of having a Memory Stick (MS) turns me OFF!!!! Because i don't like them(SONY) "anti", "unfriendly" manufacturing of the memory storage. I still prefer any phones that are using SD, CF, MMC, etc cards for memory storage = cheaper?. I can also use them for other brands of digital camera or PDA or other electronics. MS = not user friendly = die die must use sony products. That's all. No offence to all SE users. ^^
ok ok. SE is good. SE is Fantastic. But down here is Nokia fans. So whatever u says will do little impact on the rest of nokia's fans. So why not we = nokia's fans wait and buy our N6230. U just sit tight and wait to buy your SE K700.
I mean the K700 :D:D
Is EDGE so inportent???
The K700 is a real 6230 killer,you know that.
And MMC...................so inportent to???

Screen. SE wins
40 voice midi. SE wins
Cheaper. SE wins

Videoplayer. SE and Nokia wins
MP3 player. SE and Nokia wins
Inbeuild camera VGA. SE and Nokia wins
Quality MP3 player.SE wins

And FM radio and MP3 via Bleutooth. SE wins.
Need i go on?????
So in mine point of view,the SE K900 kill the Nokia 6230.
i just can't wait to have this 6230
does anyone know when is the exact date it will be release in indonesia and the price
I read the phone user manual on the Nokia web site. I agree : great phone for now. But look at all the new hightech camera and VDO phones coming this year from SE, Motorola... even Philips(!). So far announced from Nokia : the expensive and ugly bricks 9500 and 7700. Nokia being my favorite phone manufacturer, I hope it will wake up and unveil some new phones better than that. Nevertheless I need to change my phone now and the 6230 will do nicely.
First of all it's NOKIA. It has everything i need, the design is brilliant. 6230 is the perfect phone.
To K700 lover.. 32 MB wont last long (just a few songs and some pics, that's all), to make your phone a decent MP3 player you need to have at least 128/256 MB of memory. In K700 you cannot update the memory.
Nokia 6230 has MMC, mp3 ringtones and edge that are missing from K700. K700 has better display and design but that's it. If S700 would be out now I would buy that. But it's not and it will probably cost at least 700 euros.
For those who want something good NOW, 6230 has won the round with TKO.
Design not ok. where USB port?
The SE K700 is said to be available in 2nd Q 2004, so in the next three months. No MMC but 32 MB like Nokia, big screen, zoom, flash, polyphonic 40 voices...
Hope Nokia won't react as usual with just a 6230i.
The 6230 manual and Interactive Tutorial are now available on their website!! Hopefully that means the phone will be release soon. Here's the link:
