N76 is still being sold,it had build prob we know Nokia are working on it. Remember Samsung i400? Yes IT FAILED, Samsung had to CANCEL it because NOKIA had already released the 5700 and N95 which SOLD A LOT MORE! Dont front like SAMSUNG dont do mistakes when they actualy do. E51 is design and business GET OVER IT. Realy? People are moving to other Manufacturers? Why is it NOKIA is still at over 35% Market Share and rising? Yes NOKIA are at the top mainly due to the N95, N73 and 6300 just to name a few. So maybe in your store people are changing but the stock market shows that IN REALITY NOKIA are getting more customers.
to all you samsung super thin fanatics.... nokia e51 is 12 mm thick.. its has full smart phone features.. its an awesome phone.. your u700 is what? just as thin.. and you get a better.. camera and thats it!!! in my opinion the e51 is a very stylish looking phone... oh and the nokia wont die after a year...
I dont see what is your point! that you keep writing this kind is stupid things.! N76 is Market Faild phone due to high price and used wrong materials. and E50 and E51 are bad styling. they are just candy bar business phones with no style.! i dont see why you want compare those phones with..! Honestly i am user of N95 and i hate using it has it has really bad sliding machanism and battery life is real bad as need to charge everyday and its so big and no style just feel like brick. i feel like samsung is master of Sliding Machanism and style(later on i am going to change the phone to Samsung F700 which lot more easier and better to use than N95! i know it has lower specs than N95 but simply i dont like it!). and also i am a Mobile Retailer and i sold lots of phones and Nokia phone . people always complain because of Slow Symbian OS . and lots of people now moving from Nokia to other brands as they are not anymore stick with Nokia due to lots of other reason as well.
The Nokia N76 is thin and stylish, so is E50, E51i and the upcoming E71i. They are all lite, so quit making excuses. The N76, 6300, 8800 Series are fashion.
i said buy Nokia phones.! if you want buy Fatty bulky big phones with lots of features. ! i thing you dont understand. about concept of the mobile phone company.! every mobile phone company has their own concept to making phones. and Nokia concept being using S60 and S40 to make most of phone with price and feature range therfore they given up part of styling of phone and weight as well. However, Samsung trying to min. size of phones and make better style.! such as Ultra Edition phones. Like U700 and D900 was another best seller. with Good Features with style and slim factor.! thats what samsung doing.! Dont marking around at Samsung Forum! with stupid your Reason and Saying about Nokia.!
Quit lying to yourself, even car manufactorers do that Aston Martin one of the prestigous car makers in Britain buys its materials such as leather, and airbags from Volvo, and share the same designer with Jaguar. Audi gets its Quattro tech from Lamborghini and share engines with VW its a common thing!! With cell manufacturers its the same, Samsung are getting Symbian S60 from NOKIA since NOKIA own Symbian S60 now. Samsung had to buy Bluetooth from Ericsson IT HAPPENS! Like i said thats the industry, i care about whats inside my phone, what i realy care about though is how that works not where its from.
if you dont care what is inside of mobile phone or etc. just buy any products without known what is inside they have.! that is really stupid choice.
Do you actually belive, that comapny making products without having exclusive technology and just get licencing parts and put all togher and make all in one.? we are on 2008 now.! not like 10yrs ago.! to success on the market. even sigle mobile phone company need to have many exclusive technology to competing with others. but Nokia Dont.! you guys need to accept it. Samsung can phone like N95 however their concept is slim factor which is totally different with Nokia's Fat - Factor with lots of technology.! if the phone getting bigger any companies can put many feature on the phone. the only hard thing is what samsung doing now. which they want make slim phone as possible with lots of feature. !
At the end of the day NOKIA do their best to give their customers a lot of tech and function at once,and they do a great job of it, they buy ALREADY MADE AND GREAT products from companies like Samsung and Motorola and they fit those things well into their phones. The DSP DAC in N81 aint from Samsung, Samsung supply Apple with the DSP chips and supply HTC with CPU's so what? Thats the industry for you.
i agree with Ultra-Edition
half of Nokia parts are from other companies!
i bet the DSC audio chip that N81 has is from Samsung! i bet it is...Nokia could not make that themselves..all Nokia make is the Keypad!
Who cares where the parts come from??? ALL the consumer cares about is specs and functionality of the phone so stop making excuses for Samsung.
To "all da people who want be agaist Samsung Mobile"
Do you guys actually know about Samsung Company.? Everyone knows Nokia is Mobile phone company. however samsung is different with that.! Samsung making lots of others as well. and over 50% of their products they have No.1 Technology in the world. such as Micro chip (D-RAM) and LCD also they do supply Mobile phone CPU to HTC and etc. company. Do you guys know ? that over 30% of Apple Iphone's inside parts are from Samsung.! Moreover, why would samsung copy FAT.-! Bulky Design from Nokia.? Samsung's Design Concept being Slim Factor and it is differnt with Nokia Design Concept.! and for the future 4G(WiBro) technology was Developed from Samsung and all the mobile phone in the future need to use samsung 4G(WiBro) chip. from all of these Samsung being totally Different company as Nokia who just making out side of phone.(inside of phone parts are fully supplied by third party)!
both sweet phones, but samsung has the looks and nokia has the functions (nokia's weight kills it for looks)
The i450 also has a navi-wheel, which is even more awkward,i suggest you read the review.
By the way im not trying to make sound like they are the best,but the fact is as the i450 and N81 are similarly priced, the N81 is the better choice when it comes to function since Nokia are a lot more fimilar with Symbian S60 than Samsung, during the review i noticed somethings missing in the UI in the screenshots, and some hardware like WiFi which is a technology thats growing and being implementd on a lot of devices and living areas and a Music based Smartphone like this in most peoples opinions should have WiFi support.
But yes at the end it all depends on taste,but people may find the N81 the better choice cause of specs and Samsung may lose out.
Yes i know, but some people might not like the Navi Wheel and Heavy Weight of N81, this is why Samsung made this i450
i Respect this i450 its Great
These two,are very close in price,they are competitors, The Mobile Market is about competition, what gives more bang for the buck, you understand?
your saying it as if Nokia is the worlds Greatest! does it matter if N81 has all those things? its a matter of Taste!
some people prefer i450
some people prefer N81
so whats the competition about?
Keep in mind N81 has WiFi, a better navi-wheel, proper music keys,and also a few UI tweaks that i450 doesnt, since both are based on Symbian S60.
