i think they just making it durable so they didn't make a card slot
This phone is going for 600-700$ on ebay.
Why would I buy it when I can get an iPhone for less???!!!
Come On Nokia Designers!!! No Card slot??? Are you kidding? Who cares about the camera, if you are unable to expand the memory... Wrong, wrong, wrong...
I would like to add, i think that the 8800 sirocco is by far better than the new 8600 -The feel and most important the look is by far better - Also the 8600 feels just a little bit cheap. As the orginal 8800 feels by far classier than the 8600...
to nokia where is your sport mobile phone for this year after nokia 5500 sport ????????????????????????????????????? .
wat a phone.nokia still does magic!!!!!!now i can change my 8910i....great..fantastic,words r inadequate to describe it,hence we have to make use of imagery.wat a lovely piece.Its fabulous.I love it.I love series 40.
in response to the people below i would say 8600 is definitely a better phone than 8800 or sirocco.
i work at the carphone warehouse. just got my 8600 on a t-mobile upgrade, only had to pay 30 quid for it and its worth a lot more than that. although you dont that a memory card slot i dont think many people would be using this pphone as an mp3 player. it has 128mb built in.
firstly, i think the weight of the phone will tell you its not plastic. all stainless steel. and the pulsating keypad looks really nice.
second, the screen on this is really good. 16m colours.
most importantly, the battery life on this is great. i got the handset in the evening yesterday, put it on the first time charge which is normally about 8-10 hrs, but after an hour the phone displayed battery full. since then i have made about 30 minutes of calls, played about 15 minutes of music on loudspeaker (which btw is really good, it has stereo speakers), and right now the phone's battery is still full, not gone down at all. the call quality is nice loud and clear. so if youre looiking for a good luxury phone definitely go for this one!
i have a 8800???
do ya think the 8600 would b a better fone..
i am lookin to change
i have to say that 8600 luna is really ugly compared to any 8800. i`m not a 8800 owner (currently n73 music ed), but will buy in the near future a fashion mobile. unfortunately i think that will be a stupid 8800 se.
stop sending false information!
The 8600 has a 128mb onboard memory, not 1 GB
carphone warehouse confused the stats with the 6500 classic, which has a 1GB onboard memory. This is the reason of the contreversy
Hi can anyone tell me if the call quality is better than the 8800 and scirocco.. ie call volume etc..thanks
Can someone please tell me how many messages the nokia 8600 can store, as a maximum. Thanks.
you work at cwh well so do i and i have one and the back is rubbery great idea can put the phone down now , and people say 8800 is better lol what a load of rubbish lol mine still has not sold lol 8600 16 million screen better batt and to say you all who like 8800 better if its that good why you not banging on about it in that forum lol your in this 8600 forum as you wish you had one lol your like a bunch of woman winging if you dont like it why you talking about it soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much cos you wnt one
I work in carphone warehouse and i can assure you the phone is all stainless steel apart from the opaque glass keypad protector. its a beautiful phone and well worth the 600 to buy the handset
to quote: " its smudge resistant stainless steel"
well it looks like cheap plastic to me
lookswise, it doesnt come anywhere near the impact the original stainless steel 8800 made 18 months ago
can anybody tell me
does this fone comes with cradle and bluetooth handsfree like nokia 8800 sirocco?
