Outside OK inside not OK , no expansion slot, no megapixel cam, gprs class 8, definitely not worth the price, Nokia must improve it with the "i" model
I have just got one of these on O2 in the UK. I paid £90 on upgrade however my monthly bills are usually ablut £200 so i do recieve a big discount.
Yes, it looks fantastic and lets face it, thats its primary function.
First thing you will notice is that the display is very, very good.
Syncronisation with outlook through bluetooth is very easy. The same can be said about for all features of the Nokia PC suite.
Only issue i have so far is that the desk charger does not seem to charge the handset, only the spare battery. If i take the spare battery out it stil does not charge the handset. I've got a replacement on the way that will hopefully resolve this.
1.let me just say that this phone is extremely HEAVY!(metal casing or not metal casing - cant remember the last time i held such a heavy mobile phone) i bought it about a week ago and already am not use to the weight.
2.buttons (especially the navigation button) are too small even for my average sized fingers.
3.class wise? i think the razr v3 in black is definitely sexier (although its features may be inferior) - but we are talking about it being sexy here.
4.bottomline? definitely would not regret buying the phone... IF it was cheaper. but its not cheap at all - hence i do regret, and i would probably be going back to my razr v3 (black)
hello! it is very goooooooooood mobile.. but it is very very much costly ....
My brother in-law has always been a Nokia fan(so are most people in Hong Kong). He took his 8800 with him on his business trip & came back saying that the phone is not as good as he expected. He also said that the phone is not worth what he paid for!
had a play with the 8800 today (nokia reps came to work), and i must say this is a VERY impressive phone. Smaller than i imagined, and also a little heavier which adds to the overall feel of the phone which is one of real quality. The slide mechanism is solid and the phone gives you the impression that if you dropped it it would leave a dent in the floor, not the phone!
Menu system is a joy to use and the animations are really good.
But at £250 to upgrade or buy on a £30/month tarif it is a tad expensive...
my rating 9.5/10
wah this phone sold in malaysia already.the price higher than XDA O2 2s.Around RM 3888.
so great avalaible in that shop for only 879€
very good phone :=)
I was at a store today in australia, the store reps contact at head office said end of july in store if it passes telstras verification test. so prob another month. I have no idea of the price but expect about $1600 aud if its sibling the 8910i is anything to go by.
i've seen that the 8800 is already released in the uk but does anyone know the release date in australia?
i don't have a problem with ordering from a uk site but i just wanna feel and see the phone for myself before i commit £600 so something i haven't even seen for myself
the store around perth are all very vauge as to when, one of em said aug/sep
any help would be appriciated
i think they will lanch the 8800i sometime later cos like the 8910i it came it quite sometime after the 8910 model
Dont forget what you are paying for. You will be seen between the masses!! This is the main objecive of this device. If you cant offord it then you are not inbetween targeted demographics.
I wouldnt have hesitated one single moment if it got one card slot.
Nokia will relesae the revised modell as they have done earlyier with 8910i. I read that Nokia has already prepared this.
I am so disappointed that Nokia didnt manage to incorporate latest technology and design
to distinguish this piece as State of Art. Same story line for 8910:-(((
I went into a 'Phones 4U' store yesterday and asked what the price would be...
On a £40 per month (or there abouts) the phone would cost around £200. On an upgrade however, I would looking at £449!!!
I know it looks great and has quite a good set of features but it’s not even made of a particular metal, like the 8910 had a cover made of titanium. Nokia have a long way to go if they want to make the poor man's Vertu.
Dream on. The price will stay high until they stop the line. Its a show off piece.
I've had this phone for 4 days now, and I am rather pleased with my purchase. Its definitely a great looker, and and as solid as a brick. However, what is worth mentioning is that the top right naviagtion key is not as rigid as the left, and lacks a tacticle touch. This gives it a very squishy feeling. Upon discussions with Nokia,mobile phone dealers and other users of the 8800,I discovered that this was mainly because of the phone's construction and design. According to Nokia India, becasue the gap in between the right key is more than the left key from the lil drum that works as a finger rest when opening the phone, this problem would be there in all the handsets...!
Moving onto the software, the only word that comes to mind is very stable. This phone unlike my o2i is yet to restart or hang. Its also alot faster as compared to the one found on the V3 & V6. The camera has a resolution of 0.5k and is suprisingly capable of taking some very good pics. The desk charger is very well finished, and has the option of charging along with the phone, a spare battery that comes as an accessory in the phones standard package.The sound quality of the speaker however could have been better, even on maximum, its low, making it particulalrly hard to listen to the other party when making a call from a crowded room. To sum it up, the Nokia 8800 is a great looking phone, as long as one can cope with the above mentioned problems.
in rpmania the phone is 920 euros in a store and 850 on the black market. i'll buy the phone when it will be 300 euros - that's around this year's Christmass, the same price history was with motorola v3 razor - at first on the black market in december it was 800 euros and now it's 270 euros! :))) i think i can wait till Christmass - and it will be a great gift for me! p.s. class and design are excelent on this phone. i am a fan of the 8 series from nokia - i had 8210, 8310, 8850, 8910, 8910i, and the nicest phone till now for me is the nokia 8910. i own a samsung d500 now - it's a nice phone, very good quality, but i still like the 8910 in black color.
I own a V3. A good phone BUT the synchronising software Mobile Phone Tools to synchronise Outlook Contacts and Calendar is not only primitive but also defective. You may check the forum at www.bvrp.com to have an idea. I am thinking of dumping V3 for 8800. Anyone have problems synchronising Nokia phones with Outlook?
