I've seen this phone at Mobile shops in Bangkok yesterday. It's nice and I think better than E65 on the looks, feels more rigid. Of course, no WiFi. Don't think WiFi service to connect to internet here in Thailand is free though. Not advisable for a no QWERT keypad device. With S40 sw, means an "almost" bug free system from Nokia.. then I think it's a good choice for this price. Current price THB13,790 /USD430.
And by the way... I was told that this Nokia 6500 is able to make and receive calls... Nye.. heh.. he!!
To those who can't decide where to use your money:
1. if you have a lot and want to show off:
- buy a Ferrari. my boss use Nokia 7270 but owns a Ferrari and a Brabus (Benz)
2. if you have a money and want a full multimedia with computer capability device that fits in your pocket.
- you can't buy it. it's not available. wait 10 more years for availability.
3. if you have less money but want good feature and don't want to show off.
- buy cloned copy from China.
4. if you have less money and want a phone.
- don't need to buy any. sure you already have one now so just use your less money to pay the phone bills or prepaid cards.
Enjoy your day man!!
I really don't know what to say. Both the E65 & the 6500 Slide are good phones. I like the 6500 because it has S40 OS. I already have an N75 for my Nokia smart-phone.
The E65 DOES have WiFi, but only a 2MP camera. 6500 Slide has a better camera, but NO WiFi. The one thing I really don't like about my N75 & the E65 is the pop-port. I also prefer small slider phones so I like the 6500 more.
E65 & the Slide both have very good talk & standby times. I have heard of the soft, rubbery paint rubbing off of the E65 though.
I just really, really, like the fact that the 6500 Slide is made out of stainless steel. That is a major selling point for me.
The E65 is quite a bit cheaper though. I don't want to tell you which phone to get though. I think you will be happy with either phone you get. The upside is that that both phones will be available for a while, so if you don't like the one you buy, you can always sell it for the other.
Hope this helps
Just to let those in Singapore know, I bought the 6500 from M1 and it doesn't work on 3G. I can't change the network mode to UMTS which means I can't use video calls at all. M1 is contacting Nokia for an answer but up till now it's still not resolved.This problem is not just for my set cos I tried 3 other sets at M1 and it's the same problem.
I bought this phone yesterday at around S$600. It has a very solid feel as the body comes with stainless steel..
The screen is bright and vibrant with 16m colors.. The camera is very good with 3.2 Carl Zeiss Optic, dual flash led & auto focus. Video format is VGA quality, speakerphone for music is awsome..
This phone is near perfect except no wifi..
Rating : 9/10 (Excellent)
The phone is
i was about to get the E65!
But as i know both phones are out, i really don't kow wich one to take!
look : they are great but, one has wifi, and in my opinion, it's useful, but i don't know if it's for free or not!
the camera is ok for me 2 or 3.2 is ok, both 3G and both has everything!
battery is just a little bit lower than the other but it's ok!
i'm above all wondering about the qualities of those phese phones :
the key pad, the lside, the screen, the battery, if both are strong, if they will still work as well as when i got it after one year ...
Please, mobile slider , help me koz i'll soon have to schoose!
N73 price keep drain since may, if this phone release price is same as n73 current price, i think its not worth to buy...
MARVIN....what other phone were you going to buy instead of the Slide??
Yeah, my B-Day is Oct. 9th. so this is a great early B-Day present. I will take pics and let you guys know everything about this phone be it good or bad.
If you check out the review from Mobile Review.com and looks at the pics, you will see that they look just fine. In fact I think they look really good on the Mobileburn.com review as well. I don't know what people were expecting.
I mean, it is a CAMERA inside a Mobile Phone. I don't know what people are expecting these days, but to have an integrated MP3 player a 3.2 MP camera and be able to text, make/take calls, download videos & watch them on your TV is pretty amazing.
I have a Nikon 7.2 MP camera if I go on vacation for those special photos. But the camera in this phone is more than enough for an impromptu capture of cool pic should the occasion arise.
I will have it by Mon. or Tues. I will post here and on the other mobile forums about the Slide.
here are some diff... between 6500 and 5610
nokia 6500 have..

Hey Mobile Slider, can you take some snap shots and post photos of your 6500 slide for us to see? I'd like the photos ...
I bought this phone today, its really a cool phone to hold and use...its a solid one though..camera quality is good...music is above average...one the whole, it has a good build and good reception
Advertising here in marseilles say that it 's here in a week!!!
i was about to buy another phone and now it's coming out!
please mobile slider, tell us everything about this cell... plllease!
Omg 5 LOOOnngggg months of waiting for it and here we are!
I did it!!!
I just bought one off of Ebay US. for $528.00 US. with 2 day FedEx delivery. I am so freakin' stoked to finally buy it after 5 long months of waiting.
I will let you guys know how it is. I am not expecting to be let down though.
The Nokia 5610 is pretty close to a music edition of 6500 slide. I would go for it if it was released at the same time, but don't want to wait 2-3 more months.
Yesterday the phone was said available on the nokia thailand web site. Now it is back to coming soon ! There should have been a confusion, because it is the 6500 classic which is now advertised and available in the shops. The 6500 slide will available later...when ?
