Enticing Spec... but i would like to request for Wifi for this non os fon. Since it can already browse the internet, plus its cheaper access to information(a plus point not to be taken lightly). That would be an achievable chellange for this segment of market right Nokia...
@keita the n80 and 6500 slide dont share anything in common besides they are both nokias and sliders.
The N80 had no spring in the slide the 6500 slide does.
just a piece of advise! before buying this phone try to see the hardware of n80 and its slide mechanism since both are somewhat metallic and their keypads are also identical ^_^
Whether subjective or objective you can only consider something as "PERFECT" when it's more advanced -got better features- than it's predecessors or at least is in the same rank unless such thing has not been created yet or you don't know the meaning of the word!
To be more exact all concepts of an object is objective and all those refer to a subject -like god- is totally subjective...
Hope you get it now
The word "PERFECT", is so subjective. What one phone qualifies as "PERFECT" to one person, may not hold true to the other. For me this phones is indeed perfect.
I prefer phones with modest features, but I emphasize more on the look and feel of the phone. I love slider phones, and I have been waiting for some time for a phone of this caliber to be released. Is it the best phone out there?...Of course not. It all depends on what floats your boat. Some ppl. prefer candy bars, some flip phone & some sliders.
I do think Nokia has done an outstanding job on this phone, and I used to be somewhat anti-Nokia until I got the N75 & now this phone seems to draw me ever closer to a Nokia fan once again.
I personally think 1GB is plenty of storage. It is enough to hold at least 100 MP3's and many other wallpapers, themes, and screen savers. Since it isn't a series 60 phone, you won't have the same features as a S60 phone and probably not need a SD card.
BUT...if you do, this lovely little phone is capable of holding up to a 4GB memory card~!!!.
That is a ton of memory. It all depends on what you wanna use the phone for. I have never needed more than 1GB of memory...even on my current Nokia N75 phone.
How you can call this "PERFECT"?
For sure many functionarities of previous released phones like speaker phone,sound enhancements,60s OS and alot more has been blocked for this one, just to release a slim pricy slider phone!
Open your eyes to the truth ppl...
For sure you'll need SD for this one
I need some help!!
Please, can anyone tell me if i'll need to buy a memory card if i have the 6500 slide??
i don't know if the intern memory is sufficient!
As "Moibile slider" said, the 6500 is really better than the lune, without any doubts!!!
Of course, it's not as beautiful as the luna is, but your choice will depends on what you really need, what you're looking for:
If you want to have a cell that is able to do,vagueness, whatever you want, choose the 6500 slide.
If you just want to call and to have no more features but just a fashion cell, choose the lune!
As far as i'm concerned, i can tell you that my choice is already done since a long time!
the 6500 slide is "PERFECT"!
Vivid ideas for all decades!Steel in black!!You should be a designer!!!Don't think of it, just try something else ;-) What about N80...?
If you are looking for just a fashion phone, then the Luna would be a better choice for most ppl. However, I think that the Slider is more refined and sophisticated than the Luna. I love the steel look to it and I like smaller phones.
As far as features are concerned, the Slider blows the Luna away. The Luna has no 3G, no Card Slot, and only a 2MP camera. It is a nice looking phone.
But, if all you want is a phone to call, and text and occasionally surf the web, then the Luna would be fine.
I am waiting for the Slider before I buy ANY other phone though.
It's not out yet.Everyone writes reviews!!!
How do you hate the thing that you even haven't touched ?!?
Yes...i tried...it is not joke.
Everything is made of concrete material - no cracking, feels comfortable. Display covered with glass protection screen.
Plus - it is really has TV out port!!!
It is not on sale but...
Hey, i'm sorry!
I told you that i saw manufacture defects but it was a test website so.. as it is written in another opinion, maybe the 6500 slide won't be the same as the one i saw! i'm sorry again!
However, this mobilephone is really nice, i would almost say that it's perfect!
I really hope it will come out very soon like in september!
I live in Marseilles and i was told that it will come out during September or October in France!
about usa, i don't know!
I was reading the 6500 Classic comments, and a poster stated that the Classic said it would be released in Oct. and the Slider in Nov.
Makes no sense though. Oct., & Nov. release dates are Q4 release dates.
I am guessing sometime in late Aug., or early Sept. sometime.
Nokia....!!! HURRY THE HELL UP :)
Where did you get a chance to try it out? Is the screen glass? If it is glass, is it thick or thin? Do you know for sure when it will be for sale?
