hi guys. just finished comparing specs of both the n73 & n80 and found that they are almost basically the same - feature-wise. plus even a better OS for the n73. question here is which phone will be priced higher, will it be the n80 being higher in the 80/73 thing or will it be the n73 being newer? here in the philippines, 3230 costs a bit higher than the 6630 where the 6630 is supposed to be higher in hierarchy. i am opting to go for the k800 because of this reason as se keeps pricing according to hierarchy and features/technology. nokia tends to go for marketing more - i guess this explains why they have massive market share
@Adetokunbo can we carry it easily in pockets?
Does it's inbuilt speakers have stereo output or only stereo output with expernal stereo speakers?
By God, the Nokia N80 is the most advance phone around. As I post my opinion, the N80 serves as my moderm to my PC. With just some few clicks it installed and got connected to the network provider. I am busy browsing away. Don't believe all that crap about the battery, once charged it last for about 56 hours. I got my on the 1st of may, by my first charge it lasted till the morning of 4th of may. It so small and powerful. The sound quality is astounishing. Anyone who misses this phone misses everything.
Is it too thick too carry in pockets? Please, share the TRUTH!
Just got a black N80 from my local Nokia shop - in the UK. Sim free, on a voda contract the phone was free!
The screen is just bliss, wifi is great, not to mention the rest, except that the new series 60 browser is the best browsing experience ever on any phone.

Took some photos (inside and out) and they look fine... screen is AMAZINGLY clear! radio works gr8.. wifi works well + it's easy to connect to home network and browse full internet pages (i went on ebay), and the slider is very smooth not rough and scratchy like some ppl are saying

To San,the screens are exactly the same sizebut on N80 everything looks much sharper due to resolution.And about the applications,i*ve just found that they are not compatible with symbian 3-rd edition,but they have to be developed in the near future.
N70 and N80 have EXACTLY the same size screens, HOWEVER, the N80 has a QVGA screen, meaning that FOUR times the amount of pixels are fitted onto the screen/its got four times the resolution of the N70 screen.
This means that things look better/no jagged edges, etc....
