I remember, Cingular should have released the N80 on the 18th of this month. They did not want Nokia to implement the wifi thou because of fears of people using Skype to place phone calls over local wifi hot-spots (N80 is using the S60 OS which has a Skype terminal!) Nokia refused to disable the WIFI in order to protect compatibility and the Name brand. That in turn led to the phone's cancellation by Cingular :-( . So yes a worldwide, late January release is possible.
T3 Magazine (UK) seem to reckon that the N80 is set to be released at the end of January in the UK...I'll check with my local CFW (Edinbuegh) as I also hae me doots!
This is for bob..
You wanna know something.. Ebay is an unpredictable place.. It can be true and could be a scam..
You have to read the fine prints..
And yeah this could be legit.. and you can have this phone in a week.. it might have a problem.. why would a seller sell something like that.. if i get my hands on these right now.. the only price i can give you is $5,000 take it or leave it.. remember its an hot item..
So you gotta think of does.. you have to open your mind through all these options that can happen..
Bottom line is! Use your common sense!!
they have it on ebay, and i was thinkin bout buyin it. not sure yet.
how do they have it already if its not out yet?
does anyone kno if its scams?
As far as you know...
hmmmnnn.. Im still not buying that Jo.. even do they are gonna launch this in the world market..
which we all know...
Hopefully do.. I would love that..
it will support both as far i know
this phone is quadband GSM+ EDGE, Dual Mode UMTS (1900mhz & 2100mhz)
Hi it's Richard again. Apologies I'm not 100% sure that CPW will release on 26th Jan, but the employee did tell me that it is due for release then & they'll give me a call. Obviously anything can happen & of course if release is delayed then they may not know that. I must say that I've had a Sony Erricson V800i for last 12 months & it's the 1st time I've come to end of contract & still been very happy with the phone! Richard Mid Wales.
Richard are you sure about that? I can't find anywhere else on the net which says carphone warehouse are releasing it on the 26th :\
it's only ten days time! We're hardly gona have to wait too long :p
Im getting n80 v3x doesn't have such a good screen (quality/resolution), doesn't have WIFI or UPnP (which are n80s key features) and N80 has 3mpx compared to v3x 2mpx!
wow really! 26th damn thats not so long :D
Im from England I guess it will be out here too in carphone warehouse on the 26th jan?
Today spoke with CPW & was told they're due to stock the phone from 26/01/06. So it appears it's coming sooner then some people suggest.
I was thinking of getting the V3X but will probably hold on for the N80. What do other people think on waiting for it? Richard in Mid Wales.
To Jo - i wasn't comparing d600 with n80. what i'm saying is d600 has less features lower resolution display etc..and has higher capacity 950mAh battery. " they used a 820 one to make it smaller!" again - d600 is even smaller than n80 so how come they managed to fit 950mAh? anyways, i like n80 very much and therefore it drives me up the walls that nokia almost always cripple their great phones with lousy batteries. btw - d600 is a great phone too.
wdxp,the reason why they don't have the lens and auto focus is because they want the N90 to sell, and if the N80 phone had all that, who would buy the N90?
I've read reviews from a number of people who had prototypes, and none of them said anything about problems with the screen. Infact, they all said how good the screen was, because the screen will be the most high resolution screen any mobile phone has.
The camera is already very good. If you want a top quality camera why don't you buy yourself a nice 10 mpx digital camera?
Can anyone tell me any specific bugs the N80 is said to have? I've read peoples comments about the units that are currently out having problems with the screen. Will my 1 year warranty take care of the bugs? And any reason why Nokia decided to not add a Carl-Zeiss lens or auto focus on what seems to be the most compact and beautiful smartphone?
What UMTS frequency are they gonna use for this phone??
To kiff. they used a a 820 one to make it smaller!, and don't compare the d600 with the n80. the d600 is just cheap fashion thing compared to this =)
to InVaDer: hmm man you are wrong in mobilereview have a proto and they say its comming at the end of february - mid march it will be worldwide available
that wifi problem you are talking about is just a lie, nokia already made wifi phones before they know a bunch about it already.
the Li-Ion 820 mAh battery sux big time. even samsung d600 which has less features, no OS, lower screen resolution, is smaller, lighter...has better 950 mAh battery. i don't really get this, why they have to ruin such a nice phone in such a stupid way. f**k you nokia.:(
Doesn't say anywhere on the internet n80 has been delayed... where did u find that out? Or are you just sayin that to piss ppl off?
