I sold quite alot of the 8800's here in Australia and found that the sreen even though scratch resistant is just a fraction higher than the frame. This then cause the glass to chip off in chunks making your bling phone look old and busted. My guess is that this phone will do the same. Can't say
I didn't warn you!
"I suggest them to go for "cheap plastic gaget phones" like Samsung(lots & lots of similar looking models to choose from)."
what are you crazy? another phone that kicks the 8800's ass, besides the moto KRZR K1, is the Samsung E900 slider. it has excellent metal an plastic construction, a microSD slot, much larger QVGA screen, class 10 EDGE and it -still- has better battery life than this crap. nokia dropped the ball at engineering, pal
I knew an year before that NOKIA will play ppls' money and so they done it and I really saved my money...now I'm lovin' it and would love to buy 8800SE coz this really rocks
will the new 8800 SE bl-6x batery work at the old 8800 ???
i have problems with my batery life at the old 8800
i can barely talk @ 1 hour a day ..:((
The voting results do not reflect the truth about this phone at all!!!!!!.........I have noticed those voting results on the left are from a few jealous people.
Anyway, for those people who can't afford this phone; I suggest them to go for "cheap plastic gaget phones" like Samsung(lots & lots of similar looking models to choose from).
This is a full score phone for the wealthy group.
This is a great phone for anybody who can afford it, and US$1,000 is nothing to the rich people for such high quality design, material & durability.
This phone is not made, or meant to be for the poor who can't afford it & keep on putting this phone down just because of jealous.
The same old story: Nokia taking you for suckers and screwing you poor guys who drool over the looks of the phones, thinking that you will reach mobile phone Utopia some day where you will get ideal phone... Dream on !!!
Finally i go the 8800 Sirocco in my hand. It,s really a great phone. I still have my old 8800. It, worth having this unit.
can I use 128MB to store my txt msgs? Coz in most of the NOKIA fones you can only save 150 txt msgs but in Symbians' you can store as many as you want but advise plz if this NOKIA's own OS operated fone can store more then 150 txts...
lack of mmc so just waste not more than 128mb internal only few mp3 ,ringtones, image
etc just 128 i am 4gb user cant exust
we'll see when it gets here. even the nokia fanboys will be surprised. :)
@maxx the krzr will probably give u cancer because the high SAR, and have a 23% chance of going to be broken... like any other motorola.
soon all its all gonna be like all 8800 here and there. like 1st razor was pretty successful then theres slvr/krzr etc... i perfer the original 8800 but if the 8800 SE battery life is lot better probably switch over other then that ima be using this as a phone.
Ok, let me share with you my personal opinion about 8800 SE…there is no doubt that the new version is much better equipped comparing with the “old” 8800, but design…it is 100% subjective matter. To me it is definitely not better than the regular 8800, exactly opposite. I think 8800 looks much stylish and more “clean” than SE, but for sure this is my opinion and I’m not intending to argue about this matter…My conclusion is that I’m not going to change my 8800 for the SE simply because I’m not interested in the new technical features and I don’t think that design is better. Allow me to share with you something in addition…I have to admit that NOKIA are very good in creating stories, for me SE is just a new “story” based on huge success of 8800. My suggestion to everybody who is intending to change its 8800 with the SE is to answer on simple question…do I really think that the design of SE is more attractive than 8800? Don’t listen what Nokia is saying, listen your senses…
