Have you guys ever wondered, that when you bring something back with a new skin it only means it is in great demand ? Better still you hold the price, and you can't do this if it is not desirable. So all you boys and girls who dont like it move on, never has a model lasted this long at this price. Keep it up Nokia, I want to see the next issue of the 8800.
Those of you who have the Sirocco I know you love it and just like me use it all the time. Great features, makes great calls and receives great calls, period. You want more, go buy 990 or N93 or something like that. So those who don't have it, you ain't sexy baby.
Well, Nokia has done it, revamped the 8800 into a Sirocco. 2MP camera and the works. A really good fone and I am about to own one very soon!
what bugs me most is that you spend $1000 on a cell phone and you don't get a stereo headset or even a usb connector for synchronization.... so you have to buy a bluetooth stereo headset and a bluetooth device for your pc, both of which will drain that 700mah battery like anything... :x
well your hopes are answered. it's not as heavy.
because it's 4 grams HEAVIER!!!!!!
the phone looks good but looks are highly deceptive. i hope its not as heavy as the former 8800 though.
Maybe my english is not the best, but I can help you... I bought the phone on friday. I had the black 8800 before it. It has a new, very logical structured menu. I like it. The battery power is more than enough. I can use it for 1,5-2 days, in stead of 1/2 day...! The new design is not the best. The black 8800 looks better than this Sirocco... :-( If you buy the new battery for your old 8800, that will be the best sollution!
I think it looks nice but that's about it.
It doesn't even have 3G. I think nokia need to rethink their game plan. If they're gonna
put out a phone as exspensive as this, it
really should have something in it!!
I still prefer the look & feel of the keypad on the original 8800........
I totaly agree with K (dC2PM) that was one of the best opinion i seen.
I have got my 8800si already and like it is nice and attractive, but still I like the old 8800 more.
I hate ferrari !!! and want upg my BMW M5 to Porsche GT3...
Maybe you're right. Maybe 8800 is just a piece of metal someone stepped on. Ferraris are amazing I agree, on multiple levels. However, we're talking of same kind of degree, in a sense that Ferraris, Mercedez, Porsche, BMW and other german cars who likes to produce the optimum Audi, VW, etc, they ALL do NOT fall in same category. Aston, Lamborghini Ferraris, the price may be similar, but one excels the other in mechanical terms of speed, power etc. However, style is also a factor. 8800 is steel cased and it has "style". All matter of opnion. I personally think this phone is attractive, but many of you here, don't seem to think so.
I don't find Lamborghinis attractive, but they are amazing, and if I had the money I would buy one. Ferraris are attractive all round, very appealing, like Astons. Also my views. Some may find it disgusting.
So 8800 may be not as good as the others, in MY opinion, it excels in style and because of that, I would buy this phone, not just because it's expensive, and I like the idea of looking good.
Wouldn't you rather buy a ferrari than a porsche? Some people say yes, and some people say no. All a matter of opinion.
I got 8800 before, now i changes to this phohe, is quite the sames for all features... You would not feel any different.
To me it sounds like most of the ppl haven't used the handset and started complaining abt this beauty and the 2nd thing sounds like its NOKIA's competetors are sitting and posting -ve feedback and last thing sounds like someone is just hired to keep giving the -ve Voting about the handset and to reach Design by 0%, Features 0% and Performance 0%
come on guys its just anouther over hyped nokia with what?? ist stupidly expensive been whacked witha hammer poor battery no expandable memory and it wont even make u a cuppa in the morning if people are stupid enough to re mortgage theire house to buy this then they are extremly insercure and have small c@cks come on look at soney ericsson the m6ooi or the outstanding w950i sleek touch screen 4 meg internall memory and great for mp3's
Very expensive Nokia HP. Nothing great but if you have the money and do not want anyone next to you holding the same phone then this is the right phone. Good sliding machanism. The one bad thing is that the ringing tone sucks.
A phone to burst your budget and let others burst into laughter when they know how much you paid for that.
i am waiting on the phone to be released here in australia, does any1 actually own the phone already? if so whats it like comparred with the old 8800? by the way i read some comments about others complaining about the price, then have a look at a phone called Vertu and then ull have a huge winge!
