For people planning to get this handset free on contract when they upgrade sadly rumours are that on the top Vodaphone package it will still cost 199 to get this handset!
Its gonna be more expensive than the current 8800, look at the n90 we can offer it for 50 when a customer signs up for t mobiles top package (Flext 75) and this one is gonna be more expensive.
Gone are the days of free mobile phones :(
Asked the vodafone adviser and has said the release date is set for 20 April, might be a few days sooner though.
Damn it...think i might have to wait one more month to upgrade..
I should know...im a Nokia Engineer and can even tell where it is being made...hehe :o)
UPDATE: The FCC has approved the N80 (3rd week in 11/05) & will be carried by Cingular in the USA. Nokia hasn't updated their website. See the following link for info:
It's was slated to come out by the end of this month (03/06), but The FCC hasn't "blessed" it yet for the USA. Hopefully, we'll be able to buy it sometime in April. Nokia has had it on the "Coming Soon" part of their website for a while.
I wonder how this compares to the Imate Jamin? http://www.gsmarena.com/i_mate_jamin-reviews-1420.php
Which one (N80 vs Jamin) would you get and why?
I think dis fone is rlly sikk. it has a good camera, wifi, up to 2GB memory, amazing screen and i really like nokia. the one thing i am disappointed with is how everyone is making slim fones(razr, and new samsungs, etc.) i want nokia to make thin fones with good features becuz i hate moto, nd nokia is rlly good. 24-26 mm thick is not good enuf, like ew benq-siemens, new samsungs (3.2 mp, good features). come on nokia
where did you get it from/buy it from?????
and how much did you pay for you'res???? maaaaaaan now i am on fire waiting to get my hands on it!!!!
today I've got it.
hours ago----- whow!
It's ------ incredible!!!!
I------- love it!
I'm in hurry, sorry......
i have this phone from china and it aint all it cracked up to be!!!!!!!!
Is it possible to have a long lasting battery with this phone instead of the standard battery? Could anyone answer this?
still i havent used it but it is my desire to get n8o it is too small to keep it in pocket looking is best
i asked everywhere here about the n80, and they told me it might come out next year!!! i hope they're wrong.
@Kato. I hope ur not dissappointed mate. Nokia still have some bluetooth issues that need resolving. We've just sent the latest software drop of n80's back to Nokia to address these issues. Target date for launch was the 1st week of April so hopefully, they can sort it because the phone is bloody good!
how much mony you paid for N80 ? and it is really released in april ?
You just need to be carefull, i have a 6600 and it never fell before. And just go to your nokiashop and they will repair your phone..
I'm still waiting for the n80 or n91, don't know witch to chose..
Today i called my mobile company and a have pre-ordered my N80, im so happy. i've waited all this time for it and i'll be a proud owner of a black N80 on the 3rd April. I cant wait
