Thats good, if you can't get N95-8gb the definetly get this! You will love it.
Found this N81 dedicated site and forum: http://n81street.com/
why is the phone so noisy when it vibrates?? can anyone help me solve this problem???
Like i said mine is V10.0.035 date is 15-10-07. Haven't tried to update yet. But i know there is a new V11 FW for both N81 and N81-8GB.
For those moaning about the weight have compared to the N95 have you not thought it weighs more simply because it contains more hardware? The N95 has lots of software but lacks the RAM (64MB) and and battery power to support it.
The N81 is a lot more balanced. If you're after an entertainment phone this is a lot better than any SE out there at the moment, and I am a die hard SE fan as all my previous phones have been walkmans in recent years.
As soon as I plugged in my cheap £30 PX100 headphones (around $50 US dollars) I was very very impressed.
The WIFI also works perfectly and Nokia Maps is very stable.
My only criticism is the build quality.
Some of the comments about sound quality are quite funny. If you use proper headphones such as the Senhesier PX100's you will realise this is a very very good sounding phone. Yes it does not sound like true HIFI but it sounds a lot better than my old W850.
Camera is ok nothing more, but then I have an SLR for taking pictures. Display and battery life are good.
My old gripe is that build quality is not on par with my much cheaper £30 instead of £300 Samsung C300 and my older Sony W850.
It is better than the N95 if you can live without some of the features but it is not in the same league as the N95 8GB though I suspect the N81 sounds better.
This phone is cool and the music quality is high clas. Navi wheel is very successful. Battery
don`t give up.
I considering getting this phone but i just need to know from the present users of this phone as to the battery life since nokia says it is 17 days.thanks.
@Tsepz_N81: U didnt respond to my earlier post and direct question to u; check it and reply. Anyway, what is the date accompanying your firmware version number?
It seems to me, and mark - I said 'seems' - that d latest version of d Firmware is d V10.0.032, which, if u check d release date shows 20-09-07 (for my phone). I say this cos after I got my phone on d 9th of Jan, d first thing I did even b4 inserting my SIM was log onto Nokia website to check for d latest firmware. Go to http://europe.nokia.com/link?cid=EDITORIAL_528996 , insert your product code to see if there is any update available. For version 10.0.032, there is no update.
is the only difference between N81 and the N81 8GB is the 8GB memory???

In INDIA N81 cost around 16800/-

@Muzi: if you are in South Africa, check out cacell at www.cacell.co.za; they are private importers and their price is R4250 but the phone isn't covered by the 2-year warranty as you would get if you bought from any of the networks. I hear Cell C sells it for around R4100 and will probably carry a two-year warranty. Check them out.
U dont happen 2b d Tseps I know in Free State, SA? Anyway, I c u have taken d defense of d N81 to heart, and I feel u. Some of d people posting here definitely do NOT own d N81 or know how 2 use it. Despite some hiccups here and there, I believe Nokia makes d best, user-friendly & intuitive phones, EVER! I got my N81 on Tuesday & will give u my opinion in my next post to follow right away.
i love my phone. dont like the navi wheel but nice features all in all.
OH PLEASE! This kills W910 at sound quality,even M-R and Smape said so in the reviews.
So Get out of here with that cheap Walkman crap of yours,and come back here when you have a TRUE MUSIC PHONE.
Music phone? ...ssound quality not half as good as the smaller Sony Ericsson W910!
i boughth the nokia n81 last week and am really happy wit it. But i really dunno were to find free s/w and other stuf for it. Can u pls help me?
