I'm now starting to dislike N82 because of its looks. There's nothing wrong with the looks. The black N82 seems good-looking enough. But it's too plain. It's too simple. So I'd go for N95 8GB instead. The benefits of having 8GB memory already and hardware media keys are really handy. The N82 designed without media keys just stressed it even more as a mere camera phone. Since I'm more inclined to music, I'd prefer the N95 8GB. I think it would be a better music phone than N82. Plus the looks is something that you can really show off and flaunt. Unlike N82 that would hardly be noticed by my friends.
I used to have a N95-1, and now have the N82. The thing I don't like about the N95-8GB (and the reason I didn't buy it) is that it has no memory card slot - so the 8GB is all you have, and all you will ever have - they also removed the camera cover, which I think was a bad move.
I can't think of anything that the N95 does that the N82 doesnt - it doesn't have the dedicated media buttons, but if the player is in the foreground the navigation key has the same functions.
If you are thinking of getting the N95 now, I would wait for the N96 - it still has the dual slider, but has 16GB of internal flash and a memory card slot. It also has dual band UMTS and DVB-M (even if I have to admit that the idea of watching TV on a mobile phone does nothing for me...)

N82 doesn't have apps such as photofix,bestpic like in K850...but the camera capability of N82 is really too good and the xenon is also much powerful than K850..
leo asks, "i am now [confused] to choose between sony P1i and nokia N82. [could] anyone give me [an] opinion?"
It's all about preference. If you want a touchscreen, go for the SE. Otherwise, go for the N82. The price of the P1i nowadays is about 30-40% cheaper than the N82 so that might also influence your decision-making.
Anonymous asks, "does anyone know if Nokia will be making a US 3G N82 model?"
It's true that Nokia has a tendency to release a phone for the North American market after that phone had been sold elsewhere, like what happened to the N95. But such moves are market-dependent, so you better register with a forum at Nokia.com and lobby for it! Who knows, Nokia might give in?!

I respect your choice, but also to say I've been faced with that dilemma before. Coming from a N80, I don't fancy sliders anymore. The flex cable in my N80 got broken somehow so I had to get it fixed and it is now working fine again. But that taught me a lesson. When the time for my next upgrade came, I was made to choose between the N82 and N95 8GB to get for free. Wary of another flex cable kerfufle, I chose the N82. That said, the N96 wouldn't be an option for next year's upgrade.
does anyone know if Nokia will be making a US 3G N82 model? Because I know they are famous for doing this after I buy it.
N82 is a camera phone not an all in one device. I'm considering this phone but the thing that holds me is its design. It doesn't look stunning. So I might go for N95 8GB instead. I think N95 8GB is a lot better than N82. Larger screen, larger battery, dual slider form factor, hardware media keys, louder speakers.
Here are some blogs dedicated to Nokia N82
Enjoy Fellow N82 owners c",
Those who want to know how loud it is
=>Its not louder than n73 but more clearer than it,n73 speakers are the best at 70% or sometimes 80%

Does the N82 have all the features like the K850i as far as the camera? Like image stabilizer, photo fix, pan and zoom, best pic, etc.?
without nokia-asia or nokia-china, nokia cannot accomodate the large consumer demands in their products. it is nokia's headquarter in china that produces hundred of millions of nokia units every year. nokia finland cannot accomodate that alone thats why it has licensed headquarters in germany, czech republic, hungary, romania, hong kong, china - china which is the largest.
there's nothing wrong with nokia phones "made in china" or "made by nokia". "made by nokia" is actually made in hong kong china. nokia has its largest headquarter based in china. it's even larger than that in finland. that's why there are more nokia phones made in china than made in finland. please don't be confused with the "ORINGINAL NOKIA PHONE MADE IN CHINA" from the "cloned or fake nokia phone made in china". theyre completely different from each other. the nokia phones "made in china" "made by nokia" & "made in finland" have the same spare parts. the only difference is from where they were assembled.
am thinkin about getting this phone, would there be any probleems with it using it in the US
can this phone can play all video like old version of mpeg video?
or does it needed new software?
any guide for this software?
The same of the country of factory of the Nokia handsets is happen right here in Venezuela... All the N82's of the local carriers (Titanium from Movistar and Black from Digitel GSM) are made in China but there's a lot of people thinking that the fact that the phones are "Made in China" means to poor quality of the handset. I've had a N82 Titanium from Movistar unlocked, it's a N82-1 made in China and I'm very happy with it and never failed to me I also uploaded to the latest firmware and the only fact of using the phone is superb... The Nokia N82 is the greatest Nseries to me
