I have no doubt that this is going to be one hell of a phone from SE but i'm biased. Always have been a Sony Ericsson freak.
Just wish that when they come out with this phone they come out with one having the same design with a 5 mp camera. who needs an 8 mp camera on a phone anyway? SE could give it an 8 gig memory though. I'm happy with the proposed specs on this one when it comes out. Something for my christmas stocking!!!

dude, the statement from sony ericsson has been used before already by the company and they are just recycling the idea.
and based on ur own comment about se's statement you didnt seem to "understand" their message again. (sigh) (bangs head on the desk)
You said " merely possessing this 8mp camera phone does not "bring out the photographer in us all". "
SE's statement clearly says " make us all better photographers " NOT "bring out the photographer in us all"
Well the difference is..se's message is to improve our photography skills however your understanding is it can make us a "Natural Born" photographer. duuuuuuuuuh
Mind you, nokia says "It's what computers have become - the new Nokia N95"
Read " Its what computers ---have become."
Nokia's saying that computers have evolved or transformed in to N95s. bullcrap
nick, 04 Jul 2008i dnt see why SE always produce second division phones.
n73 > k800
n95 MASSIVELY killed k8... moreno, no, no
K800 is over and above better than N73
why don't you check the N73 forum, til now it's flooded with questions regarding bugs and it's way too slooooooooooooooooooowww. even if nokia releases a hundred firmware updates, it just can't fix it anymore. LOL!
i dnt see why SE always produce second division phones.
n73 > k800
n95 MASSIVELY killed k850
n96 > c905
their best phone is the xperia and it isnt released yet because HTC made it.

In terms of camera functionalities, i think SE dominates. There still some Nokia camera phones that are as good as that of SE. Examples of few are Nokia N73, 82, N95, etc.
Nokia is also more durable than any other phones.
In overall assessment, taking functionalities of phone into consideration, NOKIA remains the best. Try to compare the given specifications with one another and buy the phone and compare it your friend and you happily draw conclusion on the two.
Finally, don't relies on these opinions from individual because a number of people don't even buy these costly phones but critcised negatively. They buy below average phones for their use.
Nokia N95 still remains king of phones and no rival for the moment. Close to it is N82 and 73.
Thanks and have a nice weekend.
is a nice phone,bt compare to nokia,nokia has 16 million colours compare to se which only has 256k.so overall in display,se nt as gud as nokia
well n95-5 is actually the dominating phone in japan at the moment...
nick, 04 Jul 2008its true though, the n95 was released 2 years ago and it still has double the featuresAnd so..you eagerly awaiting this one, don't you? LOL!
its true though, the n95 was released 2 years ago and it still has double the features
Nokia fans should be thankful that Sony Ericsson Japan phone portfolio has been exclusive to them. Cause if it made available worldwide you wouldn't be bragging your N95 in here.

If they're claimed N95 is a computer, I think Nokia was right. U can find processor, operating system, huge memory, office aplication, connectivity, multimedia, game, etc. U can also installed 3rd party aplication/game. Nokia mean N95 has a phone with complete portfolio like computer.
If SE claimed their upcoming Xperia X1 was a computer, they're right too.
Be a smart people guys, don't be fanatic.
The new SE c905 is better that n95 and w960i.because mostly n series phones doesn't work gprs properly is sri lanka. SE phones support all networks for connectivity . Can anymody argue with me ?

W960 is upgraded p990 . it has such a good camera , symbian operation system , touchscreen screen,etc . actually you should ask from yourself that which operating system (JAVA or SYMBIAN ) is more useful for you . if you want a cellphone just for camera , music quality or games , go for C905 or other products like it , but if you need support of softwares for your work , W960 or other products like it will be better for you .

you are waffling too much..
Ordinary people like (us) know what i mea... moreLooking at the N95, anyone, any normal person, can conclude that it's not a PC. It's a phone that can perform things (but not all things) that a computer can do: play media, surf the web, and read/send e-mail among other things. That's not "pure" lying.
Anyone that was duped to believing that the N95 is a PC would be just as easily duped into believing that SE K750, during its time, can rival a quality mid-end digital camera. 5mp was already common that time; K750 = 2mp. It can't outclass one.
And if you think SE isn't lying..here's text from a SonyEricsson press release for C905 amd S302:
“The C905 Cyber-shot and S302 Snapshot have been developed to make us all better photographers!..."
Surely, there's lying (not 100%) in there too, or probably telling only half the truth, specially if you take it literally; merely possessing this 8mp camera phone does not "bring out the photographer in us all". Thus, if you've taken the "computer --> PC" thing literally for N95, you'd reach the conclusion that SE committed the same sin.
If you're wondering where I got the press release, search Google with these terms:
sony ericsson C905 press release
And know what.. some other manufacturers, if not all, do the same marketing strategy. Don't go pointing fingers only at Nokia, you might as well point a finger at SE and the others.

K850 was compared to N95 , because there wasn't any 5MP camera . compare other features : K850 doesn't have 16M 2.6 screen , fixed 30fps video quality , GPS ,Wi-Fi , etc. If you had experience with it , you wouldn't compare it with N95 . I've been really satisfied with my N95 since last year . Unfortunately none of the products (from all of the brands)are perfect and they should have a problem !!

the k850 was terrible.
also its just a sticker they put on their phones, it doesnt somehow improve the quality of the photos.
anyway samsung makes the cameras for SE.
i am so pleased to see this phone coming to life
BUT why a company like Sony usses Samsung C mos camera sensors in its phones????
i wish that this phone will be the leader in the market for the months to come
Why are people comparing this to the N95? The N95 was compared with the K850i, which it came out on top in functionality and more importantly sales. But until Nokia release a 8MP camera-phone then thre isn't any point comparing. This looks like it will be a huge seller, no one can doubt the cybershot picture quality. It is also good to see they removed the touch part at the top of the keypad. Nothing but issues with that.
