Whichever N you go for is clearly a statement of personal preferences and compromise. The positive ones on this forum have preferred the balance offered by the N80.
Personally I think N93 is ahead of its time but a valid concept for the true future do it all devices as clearly at the moment it is too heavy and no phones really have enough memory yet.
Just my opinion.
you know what else sucks. the battery for the N80 is 820MAh while that of the N73 is 1100MAh. why??? what is the logic behind this reasoning especially when the N73 does not have wifi built-in. i think someone up there has not been having any good sleep in a while.so their thinking is skewed.
aight people we finally got info on the processor in the N80. it is 214MHz. this sucks since the n73 has a 314MHz processor onboard. i wish there was some way u cud upgrade these processors. Nokia why why you have to do this.

Hi again... This phone has impecable (featured) components & then some (you'd love to discover yourself) (coming from a PDA only guy) is worthy of voting accolades < (mine included in there)
for the slim 'basic' 3g phone enthusiast - NEC e636........ gtg thx.
Sorry to break the bad news to you. HK Nokia will not launch N80 in the near future. If you take a look at their website which is www.nokia.com.hk, you don't see N80 as a new release or upcoming model.
pisss.. I saw that photo... it means nothing... it has no reference to anything. I on the other hand have my 6260 for reference and 3mm thicker is really "fat". Though like the other guy said, I'll go to HK and see the phone myself and get a real feel of it.
Unfortunally for many people, that's not possible as is the case with my 6260. They don't sell this model in the US and finding a store that had one is like finding a needle in a hay stack. But that's just me, I always want a phone that not everyone around me can easily have so I have to live with the faults trading it off for compliments (which I have gotten many when it I first got the thing).
cx w singtel n m1 n80 should be launching either tis sat or nez coming sat. black will be e only colour available 4 singtel in their 1st batch. i'm getting black colour as it seems more gorgeous than silver. : )
and to those calling the phone fat
please go away
looks good enough for me
its already in malaysia,its rm 2688 damn expensive and the n91 is 2680.almost the same but i think n80 is better,n91 dont even have flash.
do u have any idea when is n80 lauching in singapore ???heard people says that normally first batch of the phones gt problems is that real?
that was excatly said by the provious person...never go for a phone with specifications on paper go to the dealer work on the phone and see atleast the basic or essential features work well...
this ia damn good manly phone...
this is MASCULINE....
i think NOKIA will consider increaisng the battery life and release another model..of N80version 1 (N80-1) as N80-2 or N80-3...
Was reading about the 2 comment on the thickness and 1st thing that came to my mind is that this is a MAN's phone... not some sissy thin phone with super small buttons which you need fingernails to press (and a real man don't have finger nails extending out beyond the tip of the finger).
Anyway, I looked at my 6260 specs which is already a man size phone and compaired the two. This thing is really thicker then my already thick 6260. I'm a loyal Nokia customer ever since the 2160 but to be honest, ever since they started making multi-purpose phones, the specs are just not up to par with other companies. I mean my MP3 player in my 6260 is MONO!!! The camera is less then average in quality. The loud speaker isn't really loud and not clear at all. When at the same time this was out, other companies like SE and Samsung had much more better phones then this and reading reviews proves my point. So I'm serioudly going to wait for a extensive review before making any decisions on this one. Oh did I mention the 6260 is slow? I hope this one has a better processor. I've learn that with mobile phones, specs on paper is almost nothing like playing with the real thing. Just my 2 cents...
any N80 lover wanna be friends and share features adn explore it more just mail me.
There is no perfect phone in this world but this N80 is close to perfection. I am looking forward buying it, see no more...
