Just ordered my N85 on contract using mobilesdirect.co.uk on Vodafone so hope i get it soon,so can"t wait to see an check this i hope top quality mobile from Nokia
is the phone support flash lite player?
is the phone has copy n past funtion?
is the screen still ok after the 1000 hours or need to change the new one?
Please somebody tell me bout these, please......
thanks millions millions thanks.....

Anyhow, i went ahead and stripped away my old headphones and used its wire to extend the back cover antenna and also that circle connection under the battery. I can finally pickup a gps signal. But its still not the best and will drop. But its progress...
this phone got a 2.6" oled screen with 16m colour which other still using an outdated screen-TFT 256K COLOUR
I have been following the progress of this phone for quite sometime now, as i am eager to buy it, but am shocked that i has been openly released in countries like Singapore and Indonesia, but no word of it in the UK.
Could antone please give me some insight?
N8X series have always been problematic, now with oled screen creats another doubt Nokia be warned its only 42 days, after which it might fsde or dull out. WE ARE THE TEST PEOPLE WHO WILL SUFFER AND REPENT.

please get back to me firstname.lastname@example.org
About OLED lifespan, my wife has a Samsung e720 with an outside OLED screen. On this phone the clock and signal bars stays lit 24/7 on the outter lcd and is blue in color. The display hasnt gone out yet, and the phone is 3 years old. Thats 26000 hours almost nonstop running.

Absolutely agree with you tat it is difficult to slide down though. But does not really bother me actually -- i reckon it is really tough to make a secure 2-way slide.
got my n85 for a week. Everything is exceptional except for the gps. For whatever reason, i can never get a gps signal. i've tried various location where my other phone picks up the signal just fine. Question for those who have the n85, the back panel for the battery should be the antennas for WiFi, bluetoth, and gps. But if you noticed right underneath the battery, to the right side, theres another connection that looks like a circle. Mine does not have a wire to it and im wondering if thats the cause. Thoughts?
btw- the slider is not wobbly. Its firm...too firm that is. Sliding it for the ngage/music player feature is tough. The LED is plenty bright. The battery is amazingly long. I spent 8hrs trying to get my gps working along with making calls and going online, it only drained 35% of the battery. On an average use of 1.5hr talk plus 30min online, you can go 2 days no problem.
All the present & latest version of the N series are finger print magnet. For that matter even their latest 6600 slider is a finger magnet. Unfortunately this is something which Nokia refuses to listen to.
review of N85:
finger print magnet, average visibility under sunlight, may not be compatible with some existing software (eg nokia labs' Conversation), slider feels a bit wobbly but nothing to bothersome, Quickoffice is read-only.
very good points:
outstanding battery life, beautiful screen, pretty fast camera, fast interface, good volume as music player and phone, good camera lens cover, charges by USB, audio jet is at the top of phone, pretty good stereo speakers, separate keypad lock button, nicely designed side buttons, good battery cover latch.
number and navigation pads surprisingly did not bother me, nice heft (ultralight phones feel really cheap), buttons do feel a little stiff, for the D-pad, the bottom side seems stiffer than the other 3 sides -- perhaps bcos that's the side that gets depressed most often.

The biggest technical problem for OLEDs is the limited lifetime of the organic materials. In particular, blue OLEDs historically have had a lifetime of around 14,000 hours (5 years at 8 hours a day) when used for flat-panel displays, which is lower than typical lifetime of LCD, LED or PDP technology—each currently rated for about 60,000 hours, depending on manufacturer and model. Toshiba and Panasonic have come up with a way to solve this problem with a new technology that can double the lifespan of OLED displays, pushing its expected life past that of LCD displays. A metal membrane helps deliver light from polymers in the substrate throughout the glass surface more efficiently than current OLEDs. The result is the same picture quality with half the brightness and a doubling of the screen's expected life.
In 2007, experimental PLEDs were created which can sustain 400 cd/m² of luminance for over 198,000 hours for green OLEDs and 62,000 hours for blue OLEDs.
The intrusion of water into displays can damage or destroy the organic materials. Therefore, improved sealing processes are important for practical manufacturing and may limit the longevity of more flexible displays.
