I got the phone today (London) and it is tops! There is no other phone like it out at the moment. It makes the Sharp GX10 look like a toy! Buy it!
Sorry it refers to a comment made much earlier, but YES, you can exchange pics, etc via IrDa with another GD87, and other data too, such as Vcards.
Fantastic Phone. I would like to have one just for status symbol as well as its great utility.
New Review from CNET Asia! http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/handphones/0,39001718,39002542p,00.htm?
I found a page, that seems to show photos made by GD87 & also other photo-material !
Vodafone Germany offers GD87 for 299 Euro (incl.card),excl.599 Euro ! You can already order it in their online-shop !
SMAU2002: 24.-28.10.02,Information-& Kommunikation-exhibition,Milano,Italy, 2nd biggest after the German CeBit in Hannover !!!
This phone will be "officially" (I said officially) in stores in ten days, after SMAU.
I got one in Germany from one of my client who knows one person who ... you know (the same old story .. it's simply luck).
But GD87 is available before GD88 for asian countries ! GD88 only launched in December(Singapur,Taiwan,...)!!!
Also Hongkong don't have the GD88 yet,...
Although Pippo already got his GD87, I think it isn't yet officially available in Germany ! Today, I contacted a friend, he has a Online-Handy-shop in Germany - he told me, that he didn't get a clear answer from his distributors about the delivery of the phone !!!
For Ken: YES, 3-BAND !!!
Watch http://www.panasonicmobile.com/frame/e_eng.html (spec.)
is this phone truly tri-band with GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900? can anyone help me out? thanks.
for Konrad/Germany: there is a Gr homepage promissing GD87 for this week & the price is 609Euro !
I wonder how much this will cost in the Philippines... It's scheduled to be released in December here... GD68 on October, GD55 on November.
