to unknown who recently got the phone,is the battery life better?where did you get it from and what was the price?im currently in uk and none of the mobile companies have a clue as to when it will be released?
it a great phone wounderfully made iwish you can help me get one.......thank,my GOD bless you for this nice phone.........bye
i agree with the arguments against nokia for not having quadband which was a bad mistake. I also think that they are very incredibly stupid for not improving the battery life which wasnt exactly brilliant on the previous models.
But anyone who argues about the phone not having all the latest software or hardware features fail to understand that this phone is not aimed at people who want to use all of these hi-tech features, but for people who just simply want to make and recieve phone calls and show their phone off whilst doing so. so stop attacking the phone from that point of view!!!
I mean how many of you actually take advantage of these features? not very many unless your a nerd.
hey guys.. i jus got the phone yesterday! its amazing but to be honest kinda disappointing because to me my sirocco gold looked better than this phone.. the only thing on this phone that beats sirocco is the camera, sound quality, accelerometer, touch-for-time function and 1G of user memory.. i think i might sell this phone to someone else in a week or so..
i read on many forums and asked different cell phone providers and dealers,tri-band works just fine in canada and us. Just might have some problems roaming. But UMTS is a technology that will basically cover GSM 850
Nokia can't be that stupid to release such a phone TRIBAND instead of QUADBAND. Must be something to do woth manipulating markets around the world. I guarantee they will lose out alot here at home in the good ol' US of A. Very poor judgement.
This phone oozes class...ppl who criticise the phone fail to see for which target segment this was build for.
As usual a fine looking Nokia device as they say at Nokia flagship stores. But why limit to triband when quad is more appealing and provides superior performance? For instance my circle of friends all own Luna but all 16 of us wouldn't dare try the new one because AT&T formerly Cingular will fail coverage due to lack of the 4th band. Too bad that'll be 16 less units Nokia will sell. Wise-up Nokia!!

Triband??? Why exclude the US market? Nokia please be aware that QUADBAND is what really optimizes signal performance in the US in case you didn't know. It's alot of money to pay, although it's a stunning phone and well worth it, how much more can it cost you to include the 4th band or are you just trying to manipulate the markets?
Why all the moaning about this phone? People forget to realise that mobile phones are PHONES but these days have added features to make your life easier. If you want features, go buy an iPhone or one of the Nokia N series, or a SE phone. This phone has a decent camera, both EDGE and 3G connectivity and looks good! Ok its worth a packet but it will go down in price. And the phone looks beautiful!
So long as their r fools to buy these sets Nokia would continue making mistakes on their expenses. U need latest tech on these gadgets not glass fibre or steel or Gold on them. The Public should be inteligent enough to make a choice.
Seems like Nokia is travelling back in time from quadband to triiband. What'll be the next release, Nokia 8800 farte dual band??? Let's wait and see.
please tel me is it metall plated or not?
luna has nothing to do with 8800,8800 schirocco or 8800 arte,it is a difrent phone, i repeat luna is not a 8800,however it is in the 8 series,like 8910 or 8850
so u pay a 1000 euroes and when a serial killer wants to slash you u wanna call the police the battery runs out....what can i do with a 3 hours battery??i am still thinking of buying it
Media hype is Nokias weapon,as for sirroco & Luna this being 40 series same as 6233. These mob hav inherent problems as signals batt and speaker output. U pay for Gold n Rolex not even .10% of actual weight.
batery is twice the one in 8800,or schirocco,byt is it still the same metal plaited 8 series or is it more like luna -plastic junk????????i have to find one to compare;;;;
