*KLANK* --> that's the sound of me tripping over your soapbox.
If you NEED a new phone, get the N80. If you don't, then wait to see what comes next.
Jesus christ. You now "N83" people need to get a f*ckin life.
I mean, there is MORE to life than some horsesh*t boring hunk of shiny looking plastic.
Would you people just give it up. That thing will NOT be released this year. Think about how long the N80 has taken. This is beginning to sound pathetic. If you keep on "waiting" on new, rumoured technology, you are going to end up buying NOTHING.
Now the N80 is out, but the desperate people ACHING to get it are now saying "wait, a new phone, dont get the N80.. wait! - N83!"
You did it with the N70, but no, the N80 was coming. Then the N80 comes out but wait... the N83 is coming! And yes, when the N83 comes out... Wait for the N85 which will be "rumoured" on the day of the N83's release... (thats 3 years and STILL no phone. Oh, if only 'one' could time travel...)
If you have waited on the N80 for years, just give in and f*ckin buy it. Dont waste your time waiting on weak-ass "rumoured" bullsh*t phones that are probably NEVER going to be released anyway.
Just buy the goddamn N80 and be done with it. Then in a years time buy the 'latest' model at that time. And then a year later...
If calling people, a 5MP camera, portable wi-fi, 4gig HD MP3 playback and decent battery life is bothering you THAT much, DONT buy the N80 - instead spend $1000 on an Ipod Nano ($200), a decent Sony 7MP camera ($250), a FREE contract phone (to call people), and a palm top PC ($500 - portable Wi-Fi). Then quit your goddamn b*tchin about sh*tty "rumoured" phones and keep your "feature laden" shallow lives happy.
Oh, and all of the above items you can actually buy right NOW. However, i should imagine newer models have been "rumoured" so the new N83 boys might be sh*t out of luck for buying anything EVER again. Pathetic.
Friends/girlfriends can stop this kind of desperate, boring behaivour.
Australia finally have a date.. 10/5/06. $995 in a shop in Melbourne.
Spoke to Nokia today. The N80 won't be US bound anytime soon. As far as I'm concerned, Nokia can kiss my black a$$. I cannot stand companies who bull$hit their way through business, kinda like american automobile manufacturers.
N83 may be rumored, but Nokia asked mobiholic to remove the pictures... why? eh
Thank u CMV....
if i can access my laptop with my N80 thats enough...coz...any way i have a tuner card..in my laptop...but we wont use upnp :( thats a very sad thing...:(:(
FYI...here is the cost from a site at www.simoncells.com which is only charging $799.00 for the phone on preorder! It just lets you know how crazy all the current pricing is. After the phone is available in the U.S., look for a price around $600. It will not be that long, and we will get to hear about all the bugs, problems, etc in the mean time. I know, everyone wants to be first....
Nokia N80 Quadband Unlocked GSM Smartphone
Brand: Noka | Model: N80 | SKU: NOKN80
Our Price: $799.99
yes I think you can use that device for your TV, music system and PC to connect to your home network. I don't know if you can connect more than one at once though... sorry
seriously,i think n83 from the look is just a n80 in a different casing. it is quite impossible for the guys from nokia to just launch a phone after launching 3 new ones last week. either the guy who posted this is trying to dissuade the n80 waiter from getting it or he is just plain lonely to seek attention
and speaking about the quality of n83,if it does exist, it is truely a state of the art phone (5mp! wow, even the korean do have some problem with that too)
For all singaporean n80 waiters, the phone should be launched this saturday or latest is by mother's day as i have asked around and all the answers conclude that it will be out within the first 2 weeks of the month. however, pricing wise, it is most probably $998-$1068 w/o contract. this is juz a conservative opinion.
Lastly, to update on the latest software that supports n80, so far, i have only saw a program which is called sexplorer which works well with n80. i am not sure if the previous symbian 8.0 software works. but 1 good news for sure
all java games should be able to work!!
n80, here we come!!
but first, i got to get rid of my phone and stock up all the monies to get this phone.
maybe...maybe n83 does exist and by then, we shall see how.
might not be surprisinig that some phone with even better functions start to appear!
anybody knows how to connect to a hot spot using wi fi or a "step by step" guide?
please sent me an email
ok, cheers anyways, basically im gonna have to pay through the nose again , wish this phone would just hurry up and turn up tho, cheers m8,
if we have a single equipment can we connect all TV,Music system,PC etc,,,or what??
that is what i was exactly asking..thanx././.few epuipments come with a inbuilt one i think..
can u operate laptop using N80?
how is the battery....nokia official website says 225 minutes...>>3hrs....
that is the talk time of normal mokis phone no problem with that....
the problem is how much power does this beast consume when u use WIFI and UPNP....
i think ppl have understood that this doesnot have a bad talk time.....225 minutes is what nokia has been offering so far...
moderator plz change it after verifyinh the official specifications..
but with wifi and upnp this battery life is less...
cool, how long wil i be without a number then, im massive texter, need about 1000 minimum, dont need any minutes really, im spending 45 a month, need it to b about 30
you can get a pack code from o2 and port on to our o2 and keep the same number . we can do this cos we use a different billing sys from o2 direct
yes but the tarifs on those sites r rubbish, im on o2 and upgrading, can i deal with carphonewarehouse for this, i want a better deal, im gettin ripped off
