i agree with you.
at least nokia doesn't have phones that is discontinued before they even make it to the market. (or do they?)
i went through samsung & motorola old models, they have at least one model that is discontinued. which is a shame though looking at their specs, they look promising.
[i'm not bashing other brands, moderator pls don't delete my post :)]
To the Webmaster of the GSMarena.com:
Why don't you mention in the specification of this phone the OS it supports (series 40)???
This way many readers would think that this phone is not a smartphone!!!
Yes Nokia are announcing so many models & so much in advance...But they did say they were goin to launch more than 40 models this year..I feel they do keep their word unlike others like Motorola, Samsung etc..Nokia does launch models at the announced time[ at the max the delay is around 2 weeks in some places]...All these recently announced models are supposed to come out in the 4th quarter, so thats a lot of time to wait..
I think the announcements are just to keep people interested in the Company's products..I cant find any other reason to announce them so soon..
have not been on for 2 days and out come another lot of phones.babyboy is spot on.that 3230 took so long i ended up with the 6630 which has been excellent, but your never garaunteed they will emerge and when.i"d rather they just announced them a fort night before as most people give up and go for some other model and by the time it comes out its passed it and better phones have emerged .the 90 &91 models are rather heavy and in the past its no fun when your txting a lot and doing other things with a big phone so this looks a better option but its not series 60 but has all the functions i need anyway ,half the time symbian software is no different in options as i bet most people dont use it any way,,its mostly travel guides and is pitifull at anything remotly useful when ive been thru the whole catalogue theres been nothing that would make your phone smart..2.5g phones are advanced now and can do most things a 3g phone can as they took so long to evolve.thats my quota and my opinion.thanx for reading
I read all of your comments here... but I'm still confused. I'm a Nokia lover here, currently using 3230. I still cannot understand what is the Symbian OS thingy you guys are saying... wat is the difference with/without the OS thing? And, how would the ring tone sound with just 24 channels instead of 64 ( N70 )? Does 6280 support Monophonic and True Tones as well? I am deciding between these models - N70, N90 & 6280. When they say "31MB shared memory", does it mean "built-in internal memory"? Pardon my ignorance. Would appreciate if someone could just enlighten me a bit... Thanks!
that's so true babyboy.
looks like nokia is going to release 40 new models after all.
Why Nokia is launching these new phones so long before their availability ? They still have to lauch at least 10 phones before this one : N91, N90, N70, 1600, 1100, 5140i, 8800,6021, 6030,6001,...It just makes people waiting and not buying.
I think they decided to make these phones with OS 40 because everyone want small phones, which they obviously cannot do with their serie 60 plateform. Too bad.
Dude the Nokia-N series is going to be top range when it's introduced. 6280 is nowhere near the N's except perhaps the camera.
symbian is an operating system that series 60 devices use.example:6600,6630,7610........
What is "symbian"? This whole forum is chatting on about this phone "not having symbian" and i am wondering what is it and whats the big deal; with or without it?
Someone please explain thanks
also about the mp3 quality of the 6280 it will probaly be like the 6230i and like others with mp3 but the 6270 will sound the best and have the best quality as it have stereo loud speakers with 3d affect
XYZ,what makes you think these are flagship models? these are just how all mid and high end range phones are going to be now,there will b a symbian slider soon anyway.
MRBR19HTSIDE, series 40 actually does support thems just look at 6230i and the new series 40 3rd edition was ment to be series 50 but nokia jus kept the name its complitly different (in a good way) it will still be like series 40 and easy to use but much more features and really really better looking try looking at the screen shots on nokis website
I would personaly take the N70 phone or any N-Series phone, rather than this one (or any of the others introduced with this one)! I'm very disappointed to see no Symbian on this phone! That's why it lacks flexability!
it was kinda of a waste tt dis phone has got such high screen resolution of 320 x 240 and 262k colors but isnt workin on Symbian OS..dere goes the possibilty of themes and all..besides its a 3G phone..Don u guys agree? Symbian is reli useful..Anyway i'm reli wondering hw good 6280's mp3 quality is as compared to N90's..
I reli need d reviews of these 2 phones!
Coming to know that 6270 and 6280 run on the Series 40 Third Edition, i immediately went back ogling on the Nseries (particulary N90!).
Nokia has done a very wrong turn by introducing Series 40 Third Edition on the 66270 and the 6280.
Both are supposed to be business phones so they should have the flexibility of the Symbian OS wich is known to support many other Third-party applications
Even if they wanted to bring their Series 40 back, they should introduce it on lower-end phones, but not their flagship mobile.
