hi today i sent an email to singapore nokia asking the release date of n80 and they replyed me saying this........
this is the last week of march and the end of the q1 2006. so I think n80 will be release in q2 2006, Is it true????
Thank you for emailing Nokia Careline.
In response to your enquiry, please be advised that release dates for the release of new Nokia models can be subject to change. As communicated in the previous email, please be advised that prior to release, all phones will have to undergo testing and approval from the authorities in the respective country. Testing will be conducted to ensure compatibility with the networks and government regulations.
We would suggest that you refer to the Nokia website periodically, as once the dates have been confirmed, it will be posted on the website.
Any inconvenience caused is much regretted and we hope for your continuous support.
i'm owner of a NOKIA 6680!!!i'm very very pleased with the phone BUT i'm thinking of buying a N80 when released in order to gain some extra features of the newcomer of Nokia... Does it worth???
Only reason i was thinking of get'n the n80 was because of the screen resolution, but forgot the n80 check the sharp 904 with 480 x 640 pixels, 37 x 48 mm!!!!!!! nokia n80 just doesnt seem all that anymore!!! nokia u really dont know how to market a product.
no release date yet, this phone just keeps on get'n delayed, i just seem to have lost intrest init, by the time its released in the market there will be much better phones released from SE and Samsung. Nokia u need to sort this out.
Not sure why people want to buy this phone as soon as its released coz its best to wait and see the reviews coz N80 could be like n70 (full off faults). I think i'll wait after the review, dont want to be dissapointed again with nokia.
yeh everybody said end of march even nokia now this is getting into end of march :)
Well, if that's really true, the first quarter is over in 10 days... so yeah should be anytime but i reckon it'll be start of april.
Got an email back from NOKIA today here is what i asked,
"hello any updates on when the nokia n80 is getting released, i heard nokia seaid 1q and theirs only 1 week left i hope its true.
if not when will be the average date for the release e.g april.
Here is the reply
yes, we expect the N80 to be commercially available during the first quarter this year.
well their you go boys, hopefully this week :D
yeh me 2 kato how can u be so sure to get it 5th of april when nokia hasnt got a release date i dont think :(, i hope your right tho
Hey kato, from which store or company are you buying from to receive it on the 5th of April? Thanks
Its funny that people honestly think nokia is particularly fearful of SE or Samsung when both have relativly low market share in comparison. Especially when you consider Motorola is second world wide, and first in the states. Nokia may get a little competition on the high end stuff from the two smaller (in terms of cell phones) companies, but they aren't big enough to knock nokia off thier perch.
I spoke to the people at my local Nokia store and they said that Nokia will ship the N80 with a European release date of Tuesday 18th April in mind. It seems that people who claim they are getting the phone sooner than this are hiding the network they are on. Perhaps this is because they are not being totally truthful! Great phone though, lets just hope the first shipment of this phone is not as bug filled as the 6280 and others!
well im recieving mine on the 5th april, many people on here have put april 20th as the date, i understand companies will be recieving it on the 2nd april and then im not sure when and who will be releasing theres. i am getting mine on upgrade on the 5th april though, some people cant accept that and call you a liar and a spoilt brat just because there jealous that you have something before them. its going to be a great phone though.
LMFAO! Find a SE with more connections then N80! You wont find ANYONE! Sony Ericsson is a crappy brand, ugly design and useless & unlogical menus..
Lol...this phone is the last hope for Nokia...If they screw this-up Sony-Ericsson or Samsung will gladly take 1st place...
lying brat? thats jealousy i can sense. i want this phone us much as everyone else on here and i am just informing people on when i am getting it, i think im doing them a favour telling them its coming out soon and i am recieving mine. Im not a spoilt brat either, i just happen to know people in high places.
check this link it is similar to N80
Nokia have big problems with softwere for the N80,camera not working well,also it can not be expensive enough(600euros) to fullfill the gap when people stop buying other smartphones from nokia...it is time to ask yourself why the hell U are desperete to buy this phone;there is better display phones,beter cameras etc...my 6630(200euros) is still good enough,lots of softwere u can only dream to be compatibile with N80,also u can not use your expensive RS-DV-MMC because u need micro SD for this one...month after month of waiting,get real and buy phone for use instead for showing to another how u hawe newest 6630 rules
