This is the WORST mobile phone in the world the battery life is rubish thats why you get to batterys not worth the money !!!!!
"I currently have a PDA, WHICH IS PERFECT FOR WHAT I NEED. I don't understand why people would actually go ahead and buy this handset... "
ever thought about it that people just need it for calling somebody but want it to look good??
i dont think you have an old ugly looking palm... surely you chose a nice looking palm.
"i also can say, why spend money on a bad looking phone with big screen and ugly as hell, if the name of the callers name is just displayed in the first line in tahome '8 bold??"
i bet you dont drive a ford from 1956 just because its perfect for what you need it - driving around...
think about it... youre not the only person with an opinion on this world... if you are, fly up to mars. then youll be the only one...
calling people a poser just because of the phone?
if you dont have the money, dont spend it on the phone.
if you have the money, but you dont like it, dont buy it.
its easy as that. its my first post here. but i read them often...
i myself work in a shop for mobile phones, and guess what, i own a sirocco too. i had the 8800 special edition before... and i liked it too. i like it just because of the looks.
i have a m600 for bussiness and a w810 for normal calling and writen messages (i have to write alot to other countries).
i had also a nokia e61 before... and i think ive changed and experienced more different phones than you even know they exist...
the 8800 and especially the 8800 sirocco is, like a poster said here, a phone for people who like nice watches, nice cars and so on. if its important to me, ill spend my money. if its important to me, that my jeans are diesel jeans, and i like them, i wont go to a second hand shop.
if its not important to you... fine, but dont blame others if you cannot afford it or you dont like it.
i also wont say youre an idiot just because you like the new gforce because it looks better with it playing world of warcraft...
share your impression and say "i dont like it, because im not into black, i like pink". people will accept it and maybe nokia will listen and produce a 8800 pink edition for you, but dont diss others because they like it more... rather go and buy a 7373...
$400/- price of the phone
$1,000/- you pay for the designer hired by Nokia.
This Phone is nothing but just a piece of Junk....Ohhh Come on Man i dont know y peoples r getting crazy about tht phone. Poor battery, Lack of functions, Much expensive.... Nothing Special....
The person who buys a Nokia 8800 Sirocco is a person who appreciates things such as Rolexes and Leica Cameras. It is well made, designed to last, works well as a phone (its primary purpose). For those who talk about superflous functions ... i have an N80 and E61 as well ... there OK, but the Sirocco is like owning a Rembrandt ... a design masterpiece!
Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition prices:
Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition $1400
Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition* $3200
this phone is bullet proof i shot it on metal side 3 times with 5mm gun , and Nokia Sirocco 8800 is still alive
if u don't belive contact me and i tell u photos of shot phone
Waste of money its an awesome phone but you could get the n95 for the same price, cheaper i think too and you could do so much more on the n95 dont buy this phone until the price drops or better yet not at all..
In response to Nokiaguy;
Why? Why would you waste your money on something that is purely design? Do you really think that people care that you have an over-price yet under-specced handset?
Sure it looks pretty n' all, but it's just a waste of money. Now, before you all start going on about how I have no taste, can't affod it etc - I own my own business and Am on here looking for a new phone. Secondly, I wear armani suits and Prada shoes.
I currently have a PDA, which is prerfect for what I need. I don't understand why people would actually go ahead and buy this handset...
Let's look at the facts:
1) It does nothing.
2) It's way too expensive.
3) It does nothing.
Go ahead, buy it, try nd look cool with it, but enjoy people laughing at you and calling you a "poser"...
It's not available in 'gun metal' colour.
It really is a B E A UTIFUL handset.... I'm going to buy it during next week.
why are so many people complain about the price? can you compare this with a diamond?woman can spend thousands of dollar on a little pieces of diamond, why cant men spend $1000 on a phone that they use everyday? if you are one of the complainer, you are dont even have a taste on the design. you have to look at the design of this phone before you put any complaining on it, thanks.
