does anyone by any chance know what the 'etiquette mode' is?and is anyone having problems using it with windows media or finding it slow or am i in my own little bubble of samsung not wanting to work for me?
I am very tempted to get this all singing all dancing samsung I8510 my only concern is the GPS.I am basically wanting to know if the GPS is somthing like the Nokia N95 or is it like the IPhone? Basically does it navigate like the N95s do or only give positioning?
And does anyone know this so called "Download is only valid for 7 days" work with the GPS on this phone?
john, 04 Sep 2008battery life?well i took it off charge around 8 hours ago and ive been listening to music via bluetooth and its still got about 2/3rds of juice left!will take it off first thing in the morning and see how our betty runs and when shes ready to conk out!
Yes i couldnt believe it... i expected it to be about £600 at first. Just hope i like it, ive never used a samsung before and im parting with my n95 8gb for it..
i cant believe it i just rang up the carphone warehouse and yes people it IS £400...run run run and go and buy it!that said theres no price yet for the 16gb yet so dont know if i should sent it back and posibly save myself a £100...thoughts?
mike dolan, 04 Sep 2008to all the non believers out there the i8510 is 399.99!!!...i work at carphone warehouse. goo... moreno way!!! how much are they selling the 16gb for? it worked out £600 on the o2 contract which is pretty much the same on other sites waiting to get a hold of the handset. ive only had it for a few days but to save ahundred pounds ill happily send it back and order it again!
Mark, 04 Sep 2008i promise you it is 399.99... i know it isnt on their website... just go instore and ask... i ... morehmm...well they are about to lose out on a whole heap of money because i am pretty sure that that cant be right, i mean they are still selling the nokia 8gb black for £500!good on you for ordering it in tho,keep us posted and let us know if they have any random 'typo' hiccups and dont give you your phone...ooh we should picket if they try!
wiley wordsmith, 04 Sep 2008seriously the 8gb for £400, i very much doubt it, have checked out the site and theres no ment... morei promise you it is 399.99... i know it isnt on their website... just go instore and ask... i did on the off chance and was amazed at the price, ive had to order it in for Monday though as they had sold through.
to all the non believers out there the i8510 is 399.99!!!...i work at carphone warehouse.
good handset just got one myself.....hope 2 god fault rates are not as high as the n95 ( 1st version)
runs on symbian software like n95...very easy transition for any that already have an n95 as menu is almost identical bar the icons in main menu.
lookin 4 ward to getting it home
Got my 16GB version yesterday morning on o2. Impressed with the handset so far.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2008its available sim free now at carphone warehouse for £399 for the 8gb version.seriously the 8gb for £400, i very much doubt it, have checked out the site and theres no mention of it even being on offer as a sim free handset. correct me if im wrong tho, i can be as blind as a dingbat!oh yes i carried out a photo shoot out between the n95 and the innov8 and there is really no contest, the images were sweet! the phone is still a little on the slow side, i find i have to be patient with the betty, you press a button one too many times and shes not happy, hence she freezes up!you can use your own ringtones but trying to open up to access your memory from the 'profiles' or 'settings-tones' section takes an age, i went to the music player and chose a tone from there.i dont know if its wishful thinking but she might actually be getting faster and i fixed the bluetooth hiccup, as i said she doesnt like too many buttons being pressed and i think i got a little trigger happy!
I've just spoken to my local carphone warehouse who tell me they have them in stock on both orange O2
just a heads up, o2 UK version now delayed until at least 9th September.
its available sim free now at carphone warehouse for £399 for the 8gb version.
