STEVE J has a point about N82's keypad. that's one factor that keeping me from buying N82. hear that people?! meaning not all people who critizises N82(read:DESIGN), are people who just can't afford it.
Well I guess there are some times when a man just has to jump! So I will buy this device and try and try to accustom my thumbs to the awkward keypad. I think that Nokia should check the excesses of the fashionistas in their design department. I am willing to bet one thousand pounds sterling that if consumers were given the choice betwen a regular keypad and N82's, the majority would choose the former! The keypad is the antithesis of the N93 which had the best keypad Nokia ever made.

What you think guys?
has anyone received there N82 BLACK from yesasia yet? they are now out of stock and the price jumped from $599 US to like $839 US...
ei guyzz..i want to buy n82.. is worthy to buy?? how about the sound?? compared to n73?? the keypads looks so stiff?? is it eser friendle?? answer me please.. tnx in advance!!
I have just managed to update my device with no issues. all applications still install and worry free!!!
There is an update available for N82 to version 11. However, Nokia are releasing device numbers for upgrade in certain batches. My device start with 0558*** and currently its up to 0554*** so dependent on the number. Your product may be available for a firmware upgrade. I don't know for sure and I may be wrong but this is what I have concluded.
can i know plz if there is any update for the N82 software available ?
appreciate ur feed back
Agree, Don. Back in 2006, K800 was the king of all cameraphones! For peeps not needing 5MP, K800 is now a bargain at under $250. Nokia simply took cameraphones to the next level n included N95's features to boot. I might get BlackJack II to take advantage of the discount n QWERTY, but will always keep my N82. It will go down as one of the all-time greats! Too practical to let go.
I would like to say congratulations to you all who have just purchased this device and are awaiting for the product. I hope it will give you as much pleasure as much as it to me. I have had this phone since end of November and its fantastic. For software go to mosh.nokia.com and do a search.
The N-series in nokia & K-series of sony ericsson are excellent branches of the most famous phones manufacturers, i've tried many of these & those & for me/ my opinions is that n82 is the king of N- series & k800i is the king of K- series
( i think it's stupid to have led flash in n95 & to have average quality camera of k850 compared to the great k800i)
well talkin about the keypads of the n82,well it is easy to press,it has a lot of space between each keys for texting, the main problem is the 4 way navy key,sometime when i'm pressing the center key i accidentally pressed the 4 way navy key,when deleting a letter or character when texting,pressing C sometimes you will accidentally pressed the media key then open the carousel media..the number keys are just fine,pressing much faster when texting...STEVE just get use to it..Nokia kicked SE's A$$ this time!!!
well,to compare the n82 to all previous nokia nseries…(just got n82)the n82 is the fastest mobile device ever comparing to the famous n95 and other devices specially when booting,browsing on the web,galleries,and other application it is 10X faster than the n95…in taking photo no blur images(STILL CAMERA).i have also tried taking photo to a electric fans Rotating blade and captured it perfectly still!!!and i’ve compared it to a SE k850 with it’s camera,the k850 has less color support which is a big help with the camera,it has 256k colors only…but n82 has 16.7 million colors,that was 65.2X more color than the poor k850…and check out it’s accelerometer speed..it is 3x faster than the k850…you will notice that the k850 has brighter lcd,only because of its brighter backlight…UMMMMM….but when it comes to battery life and better quality sound k850 has it..well thats no big deal…I’m using both devices..lol…N82 is the Best!!!!!!!
I had the chance to use one N82 today. I liked the look of it although I would have preferred it in black. The functions are numerous and I was pleased that they took camcording seriously giving us splendid VGA at 30fps.
The mistake Nokia have made is in the keypad. Fast texting is difficult because of the stingy thin keys and their lack of travel. If this is a fashion statement then it is misplaced in what is essentially a feature packed phone. I text alot and I do not know how I will cope with this terrible keypad. Nokia have shot themselves in the foot for no good reason! This fault will undermine sales just like SE P1i.
My N82 is coming tomorrow !!! Purchased it of MobileCityOnline ... really good store .. cant wait !!!
no balance if you put onside down in order to take pictures in timer mode! VERY IMPORTANT FOR SUCH CAMERA PHONE!!!!
very good fone... i week old already.. got also an n73 me, 6280 and n70... d best is n82.. even better than my sister's n95.. nice..
At first i want t thanks evry one in this site and my opinion that you can make more than one color
This is a really neat phone. The best phone i have used so far. even with my memory card full, it gives me optimum speed. Hats off to nokia for coming out with the "almost" perfect phone. Out of the world camera and even better music. The music output of the phone can make an ipod begging for mercy. The only negative point is that there is hardly any themes available for this piece online. It would be great if any body could help me out with that.
