i Like this Phone
it is Better then 6233 for 1 Reason *Carl Zeiss Optics* !
You're right RP....Sea-Breeze can't read.
The battery is a 900ma. It has a 6 hr. talk time.
People should check their facts before trying to discredit a product.
the n80 does NOT have the same battery. the 6500 is 900 mAh. do you people even read? correct me if i'm wrong.
i plan on using the 6500 for GSM only so i'll happily take the 6 hour talk time.
Dam it .. the battery is veryyy poor the same of the N80 last only for 12hours if u r lucky!!! don't ever think of getting it
what is going on with the nokia? this coolest phone cant be released faster? i really cant wait to buy it...
please dont torture us anymore cos its sinful...NOKIA...
Hi its not Nokias fault pal its the networks like Vodaphone,Orange an T-Mobile always have to get there phones made with there stupid Logos on them an certain software thats why i am with O2 they never mess about with there mobiles but the others do if the networks didn"t do this it would be available now i am sure can"t wait to get one myself it looks an sounds a very good mobile from Nokia but i wish it was All Blackinstead of Silver an Black but Nokia will release a improved version after a couple of months an it will be all Black,they have done this with the N73 an now going to release the N95i all Black
well i asked an importer around here in the states who is very solid store who gets all import phones. they said september 24th they will have them in stock. i dont know if that means thats the release or thats when that particular store gets them in. i'm still hoping for august 27th because september 24th is too long to wait. its still over a month!! what the heck is going on here nokia?
to garfield and da other one.
i know da exact date as my fathers friend is our countrys largest mobile importer.hes gonna get it at that date and hes givin slide to me n classic to my father for free. he usually gives us gifts like that as hes my fathers friend from kindergarden theve never bin apart u see.
What are you talking about???
This phone is confirmed, it shows up on Every Nokia website, and the OS is S40.
Are you dense??
Why do people insist on saying this phone sux cause' it doesn't have S60??
Nokia has TONS of S60 phones if you want em'.
Should Nokia alienate it's mid-range buyer group so they can exclusively make smart-phones?
C'mon.....it is what it is. It is Nokia's S40 flagship model clad with stainless steel and great features.
If you don't like it, don
t buy it.
When has a s40 nokia phone ever had wifi before? and this phone would be ruined if it was s60/smartphone. this is like reviewing a honda accord and saying since it doesnt have BMW features, its not good. were not buying symbian smartphone here. its mid level.
The lack ot stereo sound speakers would be acceptable, but the lack of wi-fi and OS is pretty bad.
So i've read Aug 27th, Sept 17th, and bunch of other dates. Someone even said November in the UK! Yes, i'm sure the carrier versions will take longer as they are customized for that company. The unlocked "generic" version should not take that long. thats end of Q4! me, i'm shooting for the 27th of aug.
Yeah, seems like the Nokia 6500 Slide is not only better looking, better build, but looks to perform better too over the N81. I'm going for the N82 though, unless there is an updated N95 with 8GB, Xenon flash, better battery, and . Seems like all Nokia camera phones is catching up to SE. That was the one major advantage SE had over Nokia. Taking good low-light pix. Samsung & LG are both adding Xenon too. Seems like 3G, 8GB, Wifi, 5MP w/ Xenon, 30fps vids, FM tuner, & GPS will be far more common in future N-Series phones. Maybe within six months time.
You mean it will be released sim free from August? Wont make a difference to me unfortunatly as i wont be purchasing it sim free.

And taxes my friend... :)
After careful research.. (5mins) lol
Im going to stick with 6500 slide.
N81 is nothing flash... Just a standard music phone, crappy 2mp camera and poor batt life.
Viva nokia 6500 slide!! haha.
