yea guyz you have just managed to describe nokias marketing strat for the 8 series....
what you are saying is exactly what nokia have sold for the 8 series...
all i can say is like all nokias they have elected form over function... the only thing nokia has going for them atm is ptt handsets which is the next big evolution, clever marketting that they have tried to push this onto all their handsets...
8 series are jokes if you willing to put the money in you should go 9 series as these phones actually have form and function
nokia handset= average nokia marketing = top of their game
Warning - This phone is not designed to attract people who buy phones for the size of its camera lens. It is designed for people who drive a fine car, drink fine wine, date fine women - it is for people who have taste for classy things in life. This phone is bought for it's appearance, class and style. People who appreciate and buy this phone do not care about the size of the camera, it's like saying a 'Rolex' does not have an alarm and a 'Casio' can measure longitude, latitude, altitude, temperature, air pressure and a few other features - 2 different leagues
As a loyal 8910i user i am extremely dissapointed. This phone is CRAP,plain and simple. Lousy features, apalling 'Michael Jackson esque' style and a price that would make bill gates think twice.
I don't know what nokia were thinking when they created this dinosaur because this is without doubt the WORST phone they have ever made.
Nokia is trying to blind everyone with words like "stainless steel" "high end" and yet they put in features which is available to any low-end phones such as the 3*** series. Heck even the Nokia 3230 has a 1.3MP camera feature and it's lighter than the Nokia 8800. Nokia screwed up big time again
I have always been a Nokia 88** series fan. Sadly this Nokia 8800 is just pure crap. What's with the SVGA 0.5MP camera? For a high end phone, the features Nokia put into it is nominal. In term of looks, i still find my old Nokia 8850 more stylish. One would easily find the statements in the press release a total bullsh*t. And who gives a damn what Ryuichi Sakamoto puts what tones into the phone. I expected a better phone to replace the Nokia 8850 but i am sorely disappointed by this.
To Wealthy-I don't care if this comes from the moon or from Mars for that matter. All I said was that I thought the V3 is better than this phone. That's just my opinion...it doesn't mean you have to follow it...and quite honestly, I'd also rather have a Ferrari than a Corvette but in this case, I'd take the Moto over this Nokia, thank you very much! And you have no right to call me stupid or anything! And you have the gall to gall me naive?
they just could have put the price of 3000euros, there would be still people to buy it, but not with these features!!
every luzer can afford 300euro for a phone if he want's to be cool!
they should have put 2_3MPX camera and everything affordable only for rich, not like this
its the ugliest phone ever and it is also unpractical svga camera with 800x600 sounds really ridiculous for that generation of phones
it may be ugly and not as functional as many other (cheaper) phones but the main reason really is for image. if u can afford it - it says a lot about how heavy that wallet of urs really is! who cares if it's ugly..as long as u're rich enuf to have one u rule!
hey guys... although i am an nokia user, i must admit that that phone design and dimension is getting bigger and bigger. i must say they are not improving but going downwards! BULK UP NOKIA!
Nokia are still way behind. other phone models have 2 mega pixel phones out already & are better in video quality too & style & features. This phones only got style & crap features, SVGA? WTF!
Seriously, this is a lousy phone. Just studied the features. If you wan to classify this as premimum phone, look ALONE is not enough. YOU NEED TO HAVE QUALITY. Please try to improve. Look at your competitors, NOKIA, their technology is better. (If you don't have SYMBIAN OS phone, u are just nothing)
nokia has gone bonkers why else in todays time would they build such a huge handset
i think its going to be a great phone but in 300$ range of price not more than that!
with the price indicated by nokia i dont think so!
above all , the specification of such prestigious mobile is second plan..nokia brand is not revealing a new mobile everyday like its rival !...good phone, quality materials
