I got one of the black prototype nokia n80...
I just talk to my connection inside nokia, he told me it will be in pending for another 6 months.
It's worth waiting for phone smoked the rest of the high end cell phones out there. I also own a nokia 8800 got no problems with it, style wise mostly people tend to like my nokia 8800 but my nokia n80 has way more features than my nokia 8800
I hate to see people wait this long... I think nokia has to shape up with their marketing strategy and waiting period. The best advise I can give to those people who are waiting for this phone ignore the temptation to buy this phone for another year... by that time, maybe not only its already been released but the price may drop a little bit too.
WOW!! I dont think Nokia is working hard enough. I spoke with a few people very deep inside Nokia and all of them gave me a worst picture of the real date. You guys are not going to like this but your looking at last quarter right before Xmas 2006. Also releasing at the same time their small and tiny bluetooth head set.
Like I just said "very deep". I also know they are replacing / upgrading a part of this phone. After that it will be pending aproval for US market (FCC)Again!.
Sorry I can't tell you which part is it but it has to do with a very very major function of this phone which is going to put it ahead of the competion.
Look 1st quarter is gone!! see you all in the 4th quarter till then enjoy!
Nothing's wrong with the camera. It's just that people here have seen some of the pictures taken with the october proto, and based on those pictures they are saying the N80 camera sucks.
To EVERYONE who thinks the N80 camera sucks: Have you seen a picture taken with the FINAL unit...? No? You havn't? Then do yourself and everyone else a favor and shut the hell up!
About the releasedate. I can confirm that the releasedate will indeed be 31th of March. Nokia will start sending out units in a couple of days.
Can somebody tell me whats wrong with this N80 camera?. i havent heard of it being bad before. its 3MEGAPIXEL with no autofocas. but it shouldnt be a bad cam i dont think
hi all,i've also been waiting for this phone quite a long time. I hope it comes out soon.
I need an explanation...the phone is available to pre-order at some sites (show it on expanys) but they have it at the price of € 904.95 (Euro), which are way too many, epecially thinking the price is supposed to be around 580 euro.
Hope they improved camera by now...
Just check Nokia web page an they show a good preview an different vidoes you can watch seperate features i email Nokia asking for when its going to be released hope i get a reply soon from Nokia an i will let everyone know what reply i get
Nokia do not seem bothered now about producing mp3players an video camcorders on there mobiles thats what Nokia have announce today,they are showing no move forward at all the N80 must be having some trouble or they can"t face the challenge from the others that every month they put release day back ,Bring out as soon as you can Nokia as people are getting fed up waiting !
hi i went to the 'proper' nokia shop 2day in slough n asked a couple ov questions regarding the N80, the guy sed it will be released in the market in a couple ov weeks n the price will be around 300-350 (GBP) i though he wuld hav sed sumfing like 400+!! Also he showed me a N80 dummy n its suprizingly smalll.
Boyz, looks like the release for this phone is really close for the U.S, the phone is not listes under the expected soon section, which means it'll finally be available for sale.
How you know the N80 is announced for the 31 of march?
where have you read or listen that?
can you add here the link?
is a press link?
This phone is a 'Risky Release' for Nokia...If it bombs in a global release it will have a major impact...
I believe they will release this phone 1st in Europe...If its a hit (w/c I doubt) they will release it too in the U.S.
Theres like no difference between stereo and mono on a phone!! (except through headset)and N80 has stereo sound, just not a stereo speaker - but you wouldn't notice the difference if it had a stereo speaker!!You only notice the difference through the headset.
I noticed the N80 is no longer on Nokia USA website in the "coming soon" section, but it is still in the Nokia UK website. Have they given up on selling it the US, or are they just updating the website?
and how do you know its coming out on 31st march???
Also can ppl stop giving out dates unless nokia actually issue a press release. we dont want some idiot saying that my brother found out from his mate, who found out from an alien living on jupiter that the phone is out... its not funny and its not clever.
Nokia has just announced that the new Nokia N80 will be released the 31st March 2006. of a price of 500 euros.
What difference does it make if it has stereo or mono speakers? You'll use a headset to listen to music.
Anyway... the phone is stereo but the loudspeaker is mono.
Im not sure if this phone has got Stereo Speakers coz i want it for music. I prefer Stereo Sound rather than Mono..
Any1 have any idea what speakers dey are?
Are you the Ahmed Kamal I used to work with in Aroma??
I think we all have to accept the fact that worst two things about this phone are the stupid slider design and the 3 megapixel camera that will STILL not shoot great quality photos!
I guess Nokia's motto remains the same: "You can't have EVERYTHING!"
I'm still gonna go out and buy this phone as soon is it is out in Egypt.. or maybe even before it reaches Egypt if I can get from abroad!
it's a cool phone.
i'm quite interested with it's UPnp. too bad it's 3mpx cam isnt' so good. nokia should have improved that already.
