No word on a Australian as such, only that on the Nokia Australia website it states coming soon. Maybe you should contact Optus or Vodafone here in Australia as they have dates for future releases.
I live in Sydney Australia and I bought my model from Hong Kong and it works perfectly here, the only draw back is that it comes with a Hong Kong genuine Nokia phone charger but I was given an Australia adaptor so thats ok. I've sinced found out i can use the same Australian charger that they have for the Nokia Navigator. The GPS works properly as well as it has Australian maps already installed. The Nokia N82 is a great choice if it's something thats going to suit YOUR needs, I recommand it highly,
If you can afford to buy the mobile outright, then I would suggest to buy it off ebay for a good price. There's a shop on ebay called zzit (i think) that has it for AUD$599 + AUD$49.95 postage, I had my mobile in my hand in 2 working days and that was sent from Hong Kong.
I guess eventually it would come out a plan here but you'll be looking at sometime I guess b4 it is released here.
this is my point! this is how Nokia makes their Business! theirs always 1 drawback in their phones but then thats how they make the business
why in hell does nokia destroy such a awesome phone like n82 with it horrible d-pad(joystick)....you press the wrongs buttons all time when you use the d-pad....why ??? why ???
i should easily go for the n95 8gb........
The best phone ever!
I had a chance to use it for 15min and it´s amazing...on the pictures it looks strange but live it´s beautiful, the keypad is quite good also.
This over the n95 anytime baby, too bad I can´t afford it :(
Wat the hell is going on.Why the hack you guys are comparing sek850 with N82.There is just no way to compare.
You guys call k850 a cybershot phone well how funny my real Sony Cybershot camera has a Carl Zeise optic on it well where is that on your k850,i dont see it anywhere on the k850.To tell you the truth having camera menu settings like a cybershot menu does not bring any good.If you dont have sufficient hardware no software can make it up.Unless and untill then enjoy dreaming about the k850 being the king.
Any words on Aus/NZ release dates?
With the Black version on the horizon, would those be out at the same time?
on the video review, the person there says that N82 has a lot of design flaws...
im going to wait for the release and review of motorola Z10, that would be my barometer wether to get N82 or the Z10. cause undeniably moto Z10 has an edge when it comes to design and this would be an interesting competition because Z10 will going to have a xenon flash too and not to mention that it also has a symbian OS
Here a great video review of the N82
- Better Stronger Battery
- Camera better than N95 (when u transfer them to the PC u can see clearly K850i wins n i dont mean by looking at the camera on phone screen)
- Not many bugs as N82 !
- Music Player and loudness better than N95
- Screen Quality better than N82, if u put n95 screen to full display brightness that kills N82 battery but on k850i it doesnt
buttons r uncmfrtble,no infrared,big prise.
it's great that xenon flash,5mp camra,camra resolution,softwares.
If you want to have great quality camera and good video recording (VGA) go for N82 + you have GPS, WIFI, 3.5 mm audio output jack, TV out, bigger screen and many more features!
The K850 has almost nothing to offer except normal camera quality and bad video recording (QVGA)
The choice is simple, for 550USD you buy the N82.
soon this phone will be launched in black,and this one will look much better...,i wish to have it...,this phone rullz!!
nokia N82 will be available in black.
i am intrested in buying N82 but it is available only in titanium colour in chennai.
yo boys and gals, we got another bozo in our midst with a big 'L' printed on his forehead...lmao...
i dont see the idea of the current n82 models being the ugly duckling just coz its not black...
and frankly i dont see an n82 being better just because its black.
get my point?? good..'coz im still not getting yours...lol...
anyway...if the "new" n82 is gonna be a tad smaller,thinner and a bit lighter, with a whole new defined thumb-friendly keypads,a higher cap battery-2200mah is gonna be envious(!!!),with about 2gb of total NAND for all you crazy navigators out there for a preloaded world/all cities map in 3d...hell that's gonna be an awful lot of improvement, that's the time im gonna say this n82- is an ugly duckling. but until then, ma precious is gonna be the epitome of an all in one mobile gadget, at least one of the finest we got in store ryt now...capiche??comprende?? good...!!!
