Only time will tell if THIS is the master set available in the market or N82.
I think the price tag will make the difference.
Meanwhile we shouldn't neglect the all respected N95 either.
Very nice phone. I really wouldn't buy it because of the keypad, probably the most important feature in such a device. Also I don't get this trend to have micro USB vs a nice mini USB with a lid...
very nice looking phone..very masculine..pls let me know when will be this phone be avail...thanks..xoxoxo
I agree with you about the pricing. Its a bit worrying. But remember how n95 8GB came out with a price tag of 550 euros? Then a few weeks later n82 came out with an unusually better price tag of 400-450 euros? Both phones actually hav the same specs (except for the 8gb), yet there is such a huge range in pricing.
I think it is the n82 which kind of destabilised the usual pricing trend. Maybe it was due to the fact that it was released during the christmas season.
Another thing i have noticed is that even though the nokia n78 hasnt come out, it seems to have formed a rivalry with the nokia n82 (due to the nokia n73 debate).
With s40 phones, there is currently a rivalry between nokia 5610xpressmusic and 6500 classic over which is the best s40 phone. They both hav the same design, same features, same battery life, but one (6500) has a better camera and tv-out while the other (5610xm) has stronger music capabilities, better sliding mechanism, is lighter and cheaper. (Both have good music players and cameras, but one outperforms the other in a different area).
Coming back to n78 and n82, they basically have the same features, (except for the xenon flash n tv out) but they basically have all the same features.
N82 sports the best camera to date in a phone (5mp with carl zeiss optics, xenon flash and records at 30fps at 640*480 in MP4). It also has a good music player, which is quite louder than most phones (except for music oriented phones like nokia's 'xpressmusic' or samsung's 'ultra' phones ).
N78 also has a carl zeiss camera, but it is at 3.2mp, LED flash and records at 15fps in MP4. This is also quite a good camera, but N82 wins in this aspect. However, when it comes to music, the n78 is said to come with music capabilities of n81 or n91. Eìther way, it should be louder than n82.
Another musical bonus is the much talked about fm transmitter. Since no other phone in the current market has this feature, we cant tell if it is worth the praise or not. We shall only know when it comes out.
However, just like the s40 phones which offer good performance for their features, the n82 definitly does the same. From the specs i have seen, the n78 should also provide top-notch performance.
The debate over the n82 and n78 is a big one and shall have everyone talking about it (until nokia n96 or SE XPERIA comes out).
Personally, im still undecided over which one to get.
It's just the most optional phone ever seen
except it doesn't have the infrared option
but there's nothing more better than this Nokia N78.
I am eagerly waiting for this phone to be realesed please if any body finds let me know please thannk you
This n78 is scheduled to be released in May. It is supposed to be priced at 350 euro, which i dont get!!!!!!!!!
It cant be more expensive than the n82 which is already selling under 350 euro, even close to 300 euro in some places.......
I really would like to own the n78, and would pay upto 270 euro, but can i buy it with this price by July?????????????
Can anybody tell me what the price will be by july in Asia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hay it seems that its keys are very small to operate. and i m a sms lover so is it possible to type the msg very fastly on this hand set ??? as its keys r very small. thanks
Just wonder about how it compares to N95. I have the N95, it echos, freezes and switches it self off?
well it's cool and has lots of features and NOKIA are user friendly phones not compared to sony ericsson it has only few features and b4 purchasing the SE phones you must buy a memory card that's too expensive not like NOKIA they have memorycard free inside which is great... and I have made a mistake for choosing SE and now I'm going for Nokia phones and not SE phones anymore and N-series phone are the best phone ever made the original and all the NOkia phones are the best too...NOKIA now rock my world
This is my next phone. Can't wait 'till it comes out.
And for SE nuthuggers:
My first and last SE phone - K750i was replaced by Taiwan i-Mobile 902 which serves me much better then K750i just 'cause the keypad backlight is still working, joystick is working fine and there is no need to flash new firmwares every month UNLIKE K750i. ,.!..
Wow. I like it!!!! Next-generation design and features is entertaining. This will be my next phone.
design copied from other makes
nokia tried its best
features looks alright too
awww. . . .you Sony Ericsson Fanboys are so cute, this phone already kills every SE around ( The Xperia X1 doesn't count because it's built by HTC). Nothing in this phone is copied frm SE, if it was it would suck lol! Please give me a SE UIQ model that has a CPU faster than 235mhz? OH WAIT there is none! LMAO!
This phone actualy looks great once you see it in real life, very unique style, something that SE has a lack of in most of their new models.
N78 is sweet! Whats wrong with a 3.2mp camera? N78 is more of a Music phone so it doesn't need a 5mp camera, its phones like this from NOKIA that are giving them more market share, while SE sits at under 10%, NOKIA has 42%.
