I'm waiting, in terms of function, all fine to me except looks less attractive. I given up N82 because of the painfull key pads.
FYI micheal n82 is uglier than N79 by far(by very far to be specific!) all N82 has over N79 is its over-rated xenon flash... sorry! N82 is gr8t bt N79 is Colourful n Powerful... N82 only save is its black version n i have hands on experience with phone.
please will it be bether in audio quality than N82, it will be the same as N78? N78 sounds great, N82 bad...thanks
i like this phone's keypad better than the n82 since i text a lot ^^ but i like the n82's camera features... but yea.. can't wait to get this phone ^-^
oooops .... lighter than N82(only 97gr), improved Symbian software and moreover FMtransmitter.

Michael, 19 Sep 2008This phone looks like an ugly N82. Why did Nokia even make this model? It doesn't seem to have... moreThe n79 has an fm transmitter, keypad lock, better keypad, better battery life, brighter screen, lighter and thinner, symbian fp2, navi-wheel (which looks better than n81, n78, n96) and changeable back covers.
The n82 might have a xenon flash, but it cant be used for videos. The n79 has a strong dual led flash which can be used for both photos and videos.
N82 is a marvelous phone, but so is the n79. They just have different strengths and weaknesses.
Hey guys, I have just visited the Nokia official website and I saw that this phone has a SAR value of 1.40 w/kg for the Nokia N79 (Type RM-348). Yes I know that this value is still acceptable and still passed the ICNIRP guidelines. Well I've got to admit that I too like this phone because I own a N82 right now and the N82's red-colored autofocus assist light is really painful to the eyes! And then afterwards the powerful Xenon Flash will strike my eyes which doubles the pain!! And as a result, me and my friends are already afraid to take self-portrait photos. And besides, there is no way to use the Xenon Flash as a video light. Anyway back to the N79... I'm worried about the fact that its SAR value is the highest that I have seen so far for a NSeries device. Anyone who can enlighten me about this? I totally have no idea about it. Please..
Michael, 19 Sep 2008This phone looks like an ugly N82. Why did Nokia even make this model? It doesn't seem to have... moreMichael, N79 is smaller,lighter, has Feature Pack 2, much better battery, RDS, the keyboard is better also...
This phone looks like an ugly N82. Why did Nokia even make this model? It doesn't seem to have anything that N82 doesn't already have since almost a year now. When a new phone comes out that looks like an older one the least you can expect is that it's BETTER! I am very happy with my N82. Excellent phone!
D, 18 Sep 2008Really? Did he mention about the audio quality?audio is similar to the N82, that's according to him and he said that he could be wrong co'z he's in a different department. A co-worker, who works as a QC, lent it to him for a few minutes to check it out. But for us, it will be of mixed views when we get our hands on it.

Nokia reps, if you're reading this - for the love of God, PLEAAAAAASSSEEEEE make one in jet black. Otherwise, I'll head over to the N85 camp.
