Bronze colour will not be available until February 2008. As is common with popular phones, it takes several months before the manufacturer releases the new colourway.
This way, it bolsters sales just when the initially released colourscheme model begins to die down in popularity.
It is a common tactic employed by all of the manufacturers, especially with a popular model. Most recently - look at the Samsung D900 and the red variant and the chrome variant, etc. Both colours were released many months (up to 6) after the initial release date.
In terms of paint coming off the aluminium of the 6500c. If you scratch any metal hard enough, the paint will come off. Surely logic tells you this, or have you never come across painted metal before???
And no, it has not flaked off. And no, my phone is still looking pretty much brand new after two weeks courtesy of me not putting into a pocket which is full of keys, change and other hard, pointy objects which are exactly the kinds of things which will remove paint from metal and put scratches everywhere...
It is pretty easy to keep your mobile in good condition. I have just sold a simply awful D900 which was 14 months old and still in excellent condition...
i ve got an important question to ask, does the paint go off after a while ( cuz i heard that in the n76 i did ). Thx in advance 4 the answer :)
6500c sound quality really very good(try before you buy!). I trashed my 8600 months ago ... it was a terrible phone! 6500c gets pretty hot during calls; but not as severe as the 8600.
When is the bronze version coming out?
anyone know a confirmed date?
Watchout for scammers on ebay. They will list it as a bronze & then later say they lost the shipment and try to send you the black one...
I have a nokia 8600 luna, a real nice phone, except the call quality. Before luna i have a 6300 and i was very happy with sound quality durring calls ( much much better then luna). So, owners of 6500, what about sound durring calls, because i want to change my 8600 because of this.
I currently have the new samsung g600 and i m not happy as i dont think the volume is lound enough when making a call, could someone who has this phone please tell me if they have compared there phone to a g600 bearing in mind i dont care about the camera on it should i stick with mine or back it and get this ?
Noticed a couple of problems:-
1. This phone does heat up quite a bit(try to talk 15 mins. with it!)! No other brand heat up as badly as Nokia!(even Nokia customer service advisors admit to it).
Luckly, heat up is not as severe as the 8600 Luna...
2. The software of the S40 platform used on this phone cannot show call duration during a call ....they can ONLY show call duration AFTER the call is finished/ended!
A question for all of u already having the phone. Took a look at it recently (the black one) and got the impression that it was just painted black on top of aluminium. That reminds me of the scheme used in the good old 8910i. Looked great in the box but like cr@p some months later, as the paint gradually came off. Could it also be the case here?
can you not put a memory card slot on a phone this expensive. that isn't amazing. nokia, this phone could have been great, but its not. also not all the features are that good.
i think the chocolate by lg is cheaper and beter in some fetures.
the choco has 1.3mp camera and flash, the nokia has 2mp camera and no flash!
there is little diffrence in image, both look great.
both have good battery life, and only diffrence is memory. but ther is a big diffrence in price, so i would say buy the lg, i love it.
No Memory card.. at least not that i know of... it was born with a Gig of Memory.. isn't that GREAT?? :)
Sony Ericssons are very innovative. I love the way you shake the phone and it changes the songs.... that is so cool. But for some reason there's something missing in their phone designs...(in my opinion)
This phone is just pure elegance. As i grow older i want something similar and "classic" can't do the bright flashy funky phones anymore.
btw, i'm 28 and GAY
@ I'm also ixiw
Thank f*ck, at last...someone who gives a decent review of a phone on here, rather than just saying Nokia is sh*t buy Sony!
Nice work man ;)
Sound quality(including the loud speaker) is surprisingly good. Reception quite strong too. I can confirm this phone does heat up just like any other Nokia phones; cause this is my 2nd 6500c!
This phone is overall much better than the 8600, with stronger & more stable reception; better & clearer calls; better function; lighter & nicer to hold; more user friendly; 3G capable; battery last longer & is better looking when compared next to each other...!
it's me, but i am at home so i guess i will have a different id in here?
anyways. i think you are trying to use this NOkia like you are using a SE... the SE's you can turn on the LED like a flashlight... right?
But i think you are gonna change phone soon :) so u still haven't told me if you are gonna send me the phones after you finished with them :)
u know wat. i dropped it today. thank god it was the carpet. lol
I've noticed there is a similarity in design between this phone & the SE K600(The first 3G phone I brought, back in 2005). Both phones have smooth round sides(no other phones have this design except these two) & they do give similar feeling to you palm(because of the round edges). This 6500c is obviously thinner in feel.
Nokia claim that the front screen material is made from glass; not plastic.
Noticed the four slanted edges of the front screen frame are sharp & may cut my fresh!...They are cut by diamond(according to Nokia).
Any idea how to turn on the front screen lighting briefly when charging with the phone turned off?...need to do it because the front screen background color too dark & the battery charging icon too small! Any idea?
Btw, can we use the flash as a tourch? Where is the location of the attenna, the top or the bottom of the phone?
