Thanks for the link for the N85 review an this mobile to me will be a top class seller from Nokia,o.k the i8510 might win on the camera function but its a price difference with the N85 that will get more people to sign up for the N85,e2save says its available in 4 weeks time an might try out the i8510 first before i get the N85
Dude those models are pre-sale samples of N85 and N96. d benchmark is perform on dat sample handsets.
superb nokia....good....go!!go nokia!!!!...keep on creating different mobile with the same function...they will support you....right everyone???

akhoo10, 02 Sep 2008guys check this, the benchmark that will show how n85 beats n96
http://www.allaboutsymbian... moreI'd like to know how they manage to steal them from the Nokia factory, so they can do the test :D
Or maybe it's a website, on a contract with Nokia? :p
i dont like slide or flip phones, but most of the great designs are in there.. :c
guys check this, the benchmark that will show how n85 beats n96
I believe that this will cost lower than N95 8GB because this will me marketed as a midtier Nseries. Proof, N78, after a few days of being sold at a high price, Nokia plunge down the price to unimaginable depth, and it contains a new pf2 too, FM transmitters as well as other upgrades.

First, who said anything about its price? And who said anything about it being less expensive? It's not even out!
Surely, I'd put it out at 140% of the N95 8GB's price, at least. Reason: it's newer, FP 2, OLED, dual LED. Though that doesn't make me want to give 1,5 times the money of N95.
i have nokia 6270,and its about 1.5 years old. it is a high end high cost mobile from nokia. i and my many friends trusted and bought several nokia coslty sets. but after the warranty is over it started giving problem.........and when i took it to nokia care ,they said [bit can not be repaired[/b],they even did not see what was the problem. then i took it to another nokia care,and this time they just touched it and told it can't be repaired...............friends do not buy nokia high end mobile phones because the[b after sells service of nokia is the worst ever[/b].i and my friends are suffering so i thought that i should post my bitter experience to all..................once your warranty is over your costly set will start giving problem and if it is then its gone because nokia's high end mobile life time is just the warranty period they provide. most customers are facing this problem..............friends be alert and please do not buy nokia
wow.. this is almost a complete phone. the only thing lacking is the xenon flash.. But from what i've heard from the n85 review that i saw on youtube, the flash is a bit better than n95 8gig. they said it's a bit close to the xenon flash of the n82.
also, i not fond of slider / clamshell Phones. but function-wise, this is a good phone. great display and interface as well.
Is this phone's opening price will be higher than N95 8GB's opening price?
If yes I would rather to buy N79, uglier but cheaper -.-

- Display 2.6 Inches
- Battery Li-Ion 1200 mAh
- Missed Xenon flash
... moreI dont think n79 mising a xenon flash is a negative thing. Its got the dual led which can be used for recording videos in low light (which the xenon cant do). From what i saw at youtube, that flash is quite bright.
I think nokia is just giving consumers a range of products to decide from. If the n79 had a xenon flash, no one would get the n82.
what is nokia doing??? creating new and new phone with almost same features? i dont see any major differences between N95,N96,N81,N79,N85!!! what are they trying to do? fooling people? common!!! i wont be shock if nokia fell behind SE and samsung.
many companies are competing now with the great apple iphone! SE,HTC,LG and samsung! no nokia phone can compete with iphone!
SE has X1 completely new phone compared to other SE phones!, samsung has i900 omnia!! completely new!!! HTCh as touch diamond!! completely new! and what does nokia has to put on the table against the best?? th n96??? common!!!! thats funny!!! your going down!!!
my god, what the hell nokia is doing, creating new and new and new phones with almost same function, i dont see any big difference with n95,n96,n81,n79,n85...
all the same! nothing new! i dont see reasons of buying another n-series if you have another n-series! no major upgrades since n95! this is stupid man! if you have n95 then its done buying another nokia! it stops there! what the f..ck ate you doing nokia??? common wake up! your going down!
and you says n-series are the so called "the all in one device" so why buy another n-series if you have n95??? this is all dumb idea from nokia. i wont be shocked if nokia fell behind SE,Samsung.
SE samsung,HTC and LG are now competing. these companys are competing against the great apple iphone 3G! NO nokia phone can compete with iphone! see this.
SE has the X1 completely new phone! the samsung has i900 omnia! HTC has touch diamond! and what does nokia have to put on the table agaist the best??? the n96??? common!!! thats funny!!!
give us something new!!!!!
the differences i see in n85 compared to n81 in design are:
-slimmer, shorter, wider
-the edges are more rounded
-the edges have the same color as the phone's front and rear surface as opposed to n81's brown/silver/blue trims
-the color is purple or black
-the surface is not glossy but somewhat matte finish
-the usb is placed on top alongside the 3.5mm jack and power button
-lock switch key is placed at the right side
-both speakers are placed at the top and bottom of the right side
*cannot comment about the build and construction.
- Display 2.6 Inches
- Battery Li-Ion 1200 mAh
- Missed Xenon flash
And the specifications of the processor and SDRAM memory?
i dont think the n91 and n81 have the same audio chip. they both have a dedicated audio chip but i doubt if they share the same audio chip. i remember when the product manager of nokia nseries was interviewed at nokia go play in london on august 2007, he was asked if n81 would have the audio quality of n91 and he just said, "close to (the audio quality of) n91"... i'm just wondering why nokia doesnt put that very same dedicated audio installed in n91 into n85, n96 and other all-in-one devices... is the best audio quality only exclusive to n91???
Ktulu (N95 8GB), 01 Sep 2008Tell me 1 good reason, why this should beat the N95 8GB.
'Cause, so far, the only things it's... moreThe n85 was not meant to be the n95 8gb successor. But apart from the screen, the n85 beats the n95 8gb on all fronts.
The n95 8gb is meant to be a flagship phone until n96 comes out. Its price has not dropped significantly and is still going for 550euros in many places.
The n85 is meant for the mass market and thats why its less expensive, even if it has more features.
About the audio/sound quality, we shal have to wait for the review. There are too many websites saying different things about it. Smape.com say the n85 and n79 have the same audio quality as n81. Mobilereview.com say n85 and n81 have the same audio quality, but that of the n79 is slightly lower. Another website (i cant remember the name) said both n85 and n79 dont have the same audio quality as the n81.
It would just be best to wait for gsmarena to test all the phones and tell us.
