What a perfect idea…to use the new BP 6X instead of BL 5X. It will be great if the dimensions are the same…This will solve the only problem of 8800, battery life, because I’ll not change my phone with the SE…to me 8800 is much beautiful, in the same time the new technical features of SE are not important for me...
"the Samsung E900 slider" is not even in the same class.........look so ugly, look more like a wide & flat dead fish lying around the sea bed!!!
Yes, the Moto K1 does look nice too, but the material used is not as good as this 8800 Sirocco.
By the way, can you read? I said majority of the buyers in this 8800 class are do not care much about extreme functions; just enough to make a good balance is what they are looking for!!!
Why do you think people pay so much for a Vertu phone without even a camera? Do you think that these wealthy people who can afford it are stupid?
People who got the brain to make themselves rich do not depend solely on luck, & these people are definately not stupid to spend their hard earned money in a stupid way.
The only stupid one can only be you, maxx! Think about it & wash your own brain.......then MAYBE some day you have a chance to become rich & start knowing how to appreciate a good thing.
maxx, by telling you the above; I am actually putting money into your pocket!
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.
