The phone is due in April and is already on Vodaphones site! Your souces are really bad or you telling a few porkys.
Nokia also would not disclose an estimated retail price.
Yes you can connect to the internet with wifi through hotspot. You can as well connect through your home network, provided you had a wireless network set up at your house with the wifi function. You can use other connectivity option such as edge an 3g to connect to the internet as well.
that would be swell. I luv this phone. Earlier this day i went to the store to find out when the would have this phone. This guy said that he wuouldn't have a clue. Well.. i'll just wait ..
Oh and you guys can't say anything about sound and camera quality since any previews on the net are of prototype phones! The actual final release of the N80 could be a lot better quality than these..
Yeah u can use ur home internet to browse broadband on the fone! (which is free of course)!
Does anyone know if you can go on the internet with this phone (cuz of the WiFi function)
To anoymous below:
Good sound or not on n80 is still unknown. But according to the preview on mobile-review by eldar, the stereo playback quality through headset are about the same on current n70.
Even official spec had listed that n80 will had a stereo fm. You can always check in nokia official site for the info.
@ FURQAN HABIB
Nokia N80 will have stereo sound via hands free, thats mean tha it have a good sound quality (with hands free)
All I read about this phone are quite astounding, but I like to confirm what is true.
Anyone should please state the processor speed of this phone; also, does the phone truly have a FM radio or it's just one of this virtual radio that would require link-up or logon to a GSM service provider?
PLEASE CLARIFY STATING ONLY THE TRUTH.
Prototype! Nokia may change this soon! There was a guy on here earlier saying that for Nokia to make money, they arn't going to make the perfect phone and spread its specs around the N series! Which is true but wish it wasn't! One thing for sure they have to do though because then this phone really will suck is the battery life! And yeah the 3MP camera doesn't have the carl zeises lenses but should have auto focus on any new camera phone as that should be standard on all new phones and picture quality should match the K750i because pictures I have seen so far havn't been amazing!
5x digital zoom for video that sucks doesnt it, it shouuldve been 20x zoom for video also just like the n70
No the ones on eBay are all scams, if you buy from them, they will ask you to pay through wester*n union, then you'll never see ur money again :
Wow they are very nice pictures trish! Is that still a prototype version of the N80? Cos it's camera quality doesn't look as good as the other phones :\

In response to some popular queries and questions.
When will the phone be available and how much will it cost?
The phone is scheduled for the first quarter of 2006. The likely release date is March 2006, but it may be into April before the phone become available in significant volumnes, and may take further time to be available via your operator. The unsubsidised cost of the phone is €500 Euros ($590 USD, £350 GBP). While no defintive carrier information has been announced it is expected to be widely available. The FCC have approved a Cingular branded single band WCDMA 1900 version which will be available in the US. Other carrier variants, such as a non WCDMA version, may follow.
trish: Nice find! Those are some awesome pictures! Probably the best pictures I've seen of N80 yet. I especially like the comparison shots... Damn, that guy get to try all Nseries (exept N92) at once!! Lucky bastard...
