The looks are very impressive for a Nokia.
See www.n78.nl for pictures
G900 has a crappier screen, no GPS, no FM transmitter, no 3.5g, no edge, no quadband and if the touchscreen is anything like the W960 it's going to fail
350 euro !!!!! its so expensive. 280-300 would be the real price.
with 350 euro i can buy a g900 which has a touch screen, wlan, 5mp camera, better batery life, walkman player.
compare n82 & n78....which one is best?
i prefer n82......
I'm reviewing the Nokia N78.
So far i've been wowed by its looks. Unlike the nokia N82.
I'll be posting about the user interface of the N78 soon. And more about it.
I invite you all to drop by my site www.migsmobile.net and help me uncover the beauty that is N78.
1. The keypad only looks bad, but those who have held it say it brings no trouble.
2. In terms of thickness, they are the same, but the n78 is a bit taller and the 6220 is a bit lighter.
3. By the time 6220 classic comes out the n78 shall have the same price tag. (n78 is being released this month for 350 euros while 6220c is being released in the 3rd quarter for 325 euros).
The n78 and 6220 classic are meant for different kinds of people. The 6220 is obviously a camera centric device, so it comes with all the goodies like tv-out, xenon flash, vga at 30 fps etc and is meant for the mass photographers.
The n78 is an all-round handset meant for the masses. This means that all the basics (e.g. Good battery life, ease of use, OS stability) are addressed properly, then the goodies are thrown in and balanced to a good level. This shall therefore produce a very balanced handset.
Both phones had to miss out on a few items. 6220 has no wi-fi, smaller battery, smaller screen, low quality music player, 2.5mm jack. But is still manages to bring the imaging capabilities of the n82 to the mass market.
The n78 has no 5mp camera, no tv-out and no vga at 30fps, but it brings in many more capabilities like fm transmitter, improved battery life, better music player, n-gage, navi wheel, 3.5mm jack, wi-fi, large screen, e.t.c.
Personally i would go for the n78 because it is more balanced. I would get 6220c for my mum because she loves taking pictures. Either way, im sure both handsets have the potential to sell very well.
N78 has terrible keyboard, big size, low quality picture and video, no Tv out, no Xenon flash, only 70 Mb memory....and is more expensive than the great 6220C (5mp camera VGA video 30fps, xenon flash, 120 Mb memory...etc)
The choice is pretty obvious to me !
Here some unboxing videos of the N78:
email@example.com this is fake, he doesn´t have any phones . just ask you to use wester union tranfer to online tranports (http://24-transports.t35.com)this is fake to.
i am a victam to. for any doubts go to escrow frauds in the net.
Another disadvantage is that the 6220 is released in Q3 2008, and the n78 is released tomorrow!!
hey 6220 classic is not ugly at all see the live photos and hands on of 6220 classic.its compact and beautiful device i know its doesnot have luxries like my N95 8gb.bt i like its small dementions which are very handy and pocketable size.a small device having full featurez.i will buy this and keep the both beauties.i can live without the wifi becus using unlimited data plan.and for musik i have moto rokr S9 an nokia BH 501 Bluetooth streao headsets.and i love the small size
I agree 6220c doesnt have as many features as n78. The only advantages it has are a 5mp camera, tv out and lighter weight.
But it also has no wi-fi, no 3.5mm jack, no quality music player, a smaller screen, no fm transmitter, no navi-wheel, and it has a smaller battery capacity than n78.
I also saw a site saying that the release date would be 22 may instead of 15 may by vodafone.
Hope they keep their promise this time.
The 6220 is ugly, no wifi, a smaller screen, no FM transmitter and smaller battery.
it should be on 15.5 but now is on 22.5.2008 on vodafone.
9th June is for O2
The support site is available on nokia web site. So should be released really soon now. Anyway won't buy it, 6220C far better...
How do you know its release date is on 22nd May? where did you read it? is the release in all countries or only a few?
