It's supposed to be on sale at The Link in the UK, but there's no sign of it yet! Why do they show things as being 'In Store Now' when they haven't arrived? Orange are showing it as 'coming soon'...
i think i´d rather buy the 6233, wehn the 6280 comes on jannuary 9th...
if you don´t know: you can download the 6280 manual in many languages on europe.nokia.com!!!!
also there is an interactive demo of some functions!
i know since a while, but i forgot to post...sorry
Can you put tomtom navigator or route66 or something like that on this phone??? Hope it comes soon very nice phone
hey! if the nokia 6280 supports mpeg4, than it supports .avi files, or not?
This fantastic phone is now available in Britain in The Link phone shop.
Has anyone managed to find live pics of the silver version? It seems as though all I've seen are pics of the black model...
Hi cp: I guess 30c is a OK considering it was almost $1.00 when it first came out. But why bother? If you're going to make a video call and be scummy, you might as well make a voice call for free on capped plans. Lets face it, videos calls aren't for those with low self-esteem - having your face zoomed in on display. Yesh!
zero: Video calling rates for Three can range from 13c to 44c depending on the plan. But on average they are 30c on most plans, wont you say its a reasonble price? So lets take avantage of this video calling function in this fantastic phone!
Here in New Zealand video calls are the same price as voice calls on Vodafone (the only 3G provider with video calling!) Mobile internet is charged at the same rate as on the GSM/GPRS system so while NZ has the highest charges in any O.E.C.D nation, comparatively our videocalling is cheap!
Vodafone (UK) now says its available January 2006 :( i really wanted 2 get it this month, but looks like now i will have to wait another month...
Apparently this phone is equipped with a MPEG4 player. Thus you can encode your favourite Simpsons episodes and watch it accordingly.
cp: I really don't know which company you're with but you wish! On the three network video calls cost 35c per 30 seconds - whereas you'd probably get free phone calls up to a certain cap rate... Sorry not the same. In case you didn't know Australians pay one of the highest mobile, telephone, and broadband internet rates in the world.
In Australia 3G is one of the biggest and cheapest services ard. Video calling is the same rate as a normal call, 2G phones are so ancient now a days. So the Nokia 6280 will be a big hit here.
Rift ---> As you can see on the following link, there are more pictures of the phone and some screenshots:
Here's a link to the forum where the guy with the phone, is discussing it:
On Nokia's page you'll find that it IS possible to video record in VGA (640*480 @ 15 fps) and CIF in 30 fps...!!
