£260 UK price on vodaphone.co.uk on pay monthly, O2 haven't released it yet but will do on a pay monthly tarrif before xmas.
to Anwar: GD87 the European version, GD88 the version for asian countries! It has nothing to do with 2-band or 3-band,...It's a user-issue, that means, mainly a language-support-issue !
I have just purchased the GD87 and i must say, i am DAMN impressed. 3 negative points though...1 Not enough memory. 2. Cannot hold SMS msg's in phone mem. 3. Fiddly phone book. Other than that, this phone is bloody great. Keep it up Panasonic! Just a note though, it has an uncanning resemblence with the Sharp GX10....Um..Is this a joint project i wonder???
Good phone. But I don't understand why Panasonic has launched different models (GD67 & GD68) for Europe and Asia, if its a tri-band phone!!
Me being extremely happy with this phone is an understatement. Lens quality is great and after sorting initital network provider problems emailing pics is now seemless and quick using GPRS. Phone has a ruggidized feel, hinge is solid and the phone overall is definetely not flimsy.
On the negative side, phone software in relation to photo album needs a rewrite and the user manual is not accurate.
Definitely a great buy!
I'm in Thailand and i just want to buy it but i don't know howmuch is it and where to buy ... the SHARP GX10 too i saw it in vodafone.co.uk but i don't know how to but
This phone is great, but the big let down compaired to the sister Sharp GX10, is no java games, that would complete the picture and make this a best seller.
nice phone to point out some negatives:
1)small memory only 700 kb which means around 20 pictures.
2)the camera takes pictures only at screen dimension of phone (extremely small)
these are only 3 negs but very important!i think!
I really like this version because of its
feature, model, and the capability.
But when this product entering market in Indonesia? and How about the price....?
I hope this good product not too expensive according of my plan to buy and it would become the favourite mobile phones of this year, but I think it will more exciting if this version has a longer power supply and more fun games for entertainment not just only for communications......Thank You !
Please email me I have the Panasonic GD that everyone is looking for. I carry all phones! I am located in the US.
OK the fool thing was a bit ott, all i meant was i've never got a phone that lived up to all the different specs that you see on the net. You only find its faults when you have it.
To the guy who banged on about the internal SMS memory of 300kb. If you have the phone rather that look at some German porn site then you would know i'm telling the truth about the 20 SMS limit. Fool.
so what dg you think 300k is a lot of memory?:-)i have 867k in my phone and is still not enough!
I just watched the GD87-specification on a German mobile phone homepage: the GD87 has an internal SMS-memory-capacity till 300KB !!!!!
I also like this GD87 very much & I'm going to buy it...but,we should be careful to overrate something too fast!
Because: a 16bit TFT color screen & a dig. cam alone don't make it the best mobile phone on the market! The real high-tech mobile phones, you only find in Japan, not outside ! Too many features are missing to make GD87 the 'best': no bluetooth,no java,no video-on-demand,no memory expansion (eg. duo stick), no audio player, no video-capability,no 2nd color subscreen, no flash,...this are functions, which make a mobile phone 'real' high tech !!!!
20 SMS-memory is rather poor for such phone ! But is this really true ? Such phones use 'shared memory' for diff. kind of data ! How big is the mem-capacity total ? 500 KB ?
