those sites are OBVIOUSLY 100% bogus. without even checking them out, i'd venture to guess that they only accept western union or some other dubious money transfer system as a payment option, which, as anyone knows, is basically the most efficient way to end a money/scam trail. moreover, as the comment below stated, why the hell would some random unofficial website have access to an unreleashed product while the stores and major players still don't? these are the same bastards jacking gullible people on ebay. blatant scams!! please don't feed into and thereby bolster their bulls**t!
Those sites are FAKE, most will ask you to use some kind of money transfer. Some will even "pretend" that they can do a secure credit card transaction online, but its fake too. You put in your info, and a day later they email you saying they can't process your card at the time and want you to send them cash through a transfer system! Some even charge your account without your authorzation!! www.mobilebee.com has the N80 and a few other hot models for pre-sale. I also found the phone at www.buystation.com but i'm not sure if they are legit or not. mobilebee pre-sells it for $799.00!! Thats up there, but i'm sure people will pay.
I'm afraid that those sites are false or fraudulent... Call it my sixt sense but they must explain to me how they can sell a phone a month before its launch at half of its price. Boh?!? Post some more opinions about them please! Bye
My opinion is that it's had too much promo til now.The features are quite good but the expectation is too long.I want the same features into a clamshell.
spoke to guy in vodafone store yesterday and they say it's due for release in mid march.i cant wait :)
if some one has data that N80 will be released after april/may i shall buy N70 instead. Am too worried with my very old 6610. :-(
I cant hear anything!
that celluloco site is rubbish. It quotes N80 for 1600 US dollars and the list price for $1900. Rubbish. This phone cant be more than $700. That is laptop/pc folks..
And the count down says 1 days blah blah. I dont belive it.
For a matter of fact, all of you people are wrong . I jus brought my nokia n80 today. My friend SOMEHOW got it from da shops. He also got a nokia n92 for himself. THIS FONE IS BRILLIANT , it’s the best fone ive ever known iin my life. If you have a chance trust me just get n80, no other fone.
r u crazy man n80 will be released in march not in may.Ive maid my decision and iam gona buy it.
i really like nokia N80 i hope you could give me one cause i really really like it and again please give me one nokia N80 please........
@The Diffusion Group Symbian is not Nokia ! Not even the S60 (part of symbian) is Nokia, althou Nokia is the biggest suplier of S60 phones which is the biggest share of Symbian by far ! SE and others have Symbian phones too, but Nokia is King when it comes to symbian. Actually Symbian is still the biggest out there (for now) WM5 is gaining momentum thou :-)
I totally agree with you guys. They promote it way ahead as soon as it gets approval from the FCC. Then by the time it's released most of us are already so bored of it so we begin anticipating the next upper end model. This is quite simply the case with the 6280. It's tie in with '3' totally cheapened its appeal and now most passionate people are looking at the n80 (which I must admit I am getting pretty bored of as well)... I totally recall in the old days when the three Nokia models ruled - 8210, 8250, and the supreme 8250.
Dallas, TX February 7, 2006 - According to new research from The Diffusion Group, as demand for advanced mobile devices accelerates, the battle between mobile OS vendors will intensify with market-leader Symbian gradually losing share to both Microsoft's Mobile Windows and Linux. ...
This is slowly mark the end of Nokia since SYmbian OS is the only thing that attracts most people..
to benhur,,,they spoil it as well because in the past in the days of the greyscale screen it was ages from the release of say the n8210 till the n8310.I found them days more exiting,,but,,,now they sling them out like their going out of fashion..its hard to get fully exited as there chucking out loads of the same thing,,nothing is new!!!just go back to when the first camera phones were coming out & the anticipation,,,you dont get that now
i dont understand one think in all these mobile phone companies, why do they release so many models at one time cant they give a gap of min.3mnths so the people have options later on if they relase phones every 15days or even a month it really does not help hope all the cell phone companies understand
Does this have to do with the Cingular not putting in both WCGMA nodes for their 3G?
