sorry forgot to mention this phone will work in any part of the world.. even in Nokia dominated areas and even at home of Nick and Allan...
K850 is quad band GSM+EDGE (850-NAG, 900-EGSM, 1800-DCS, 1900-PCS) bands and triband UMTS+HSDPA (850,1900, 2100) so this phone will work for 2.5G as well as on 3G networks without any problems.
i need 3 phones, rite nw i hav 8800 arte, n95 and g600, which 1 wud u get rid of to accommodate the k850i i have jus purchased? thankyou.
Nseries phones are not meant to have touchscreens, also the qwerty keyboards is left to the E series.
also whats wrong with s60, its brilliant. symbian is so good sony erricson had to use a slightly inferior version on their 'smartphones'.
the battery on my n95 is not 'average' to every other phone after the firmware updates.
and yea i think i might get the x1 because lets face it, the only bad thing about it is the sony erricson branding and the poor un-nokia camera (lol).
Has the K850i after 6 months, gotten any better? will I be satisfied with this phone?
"there isnt a great deal of difference between the n95 and the n96 because there is barely anything more they can add!"
ummm, hello!?? a TOUCHSCREEN, a QWERTY KEYBOARD, how about a "better" OS but forget that - first it needs a better BATTERY!!!
wake up, nick!
Will this phone work well with AT&T? And, how is all around quality after long term use? thanx
if nokia is using technology from ericsson then why is that until now se could not make a phone equal to the n95. Ericsson cell phones were good until rip off sony got involved. The sony store with their over inflated prices. Those same sony tv's are cheaper everywhere else. Jxbc, don't tell me sony cares about customer needs!
Man it takes time to catch up
just wait till P5 Comes out.
btw XPERIA X1 is made by Sony Ericsson!
Welcome to the SE Life.
i gotta shine throw your hands up in the sky!!!!!!
Nick is planning to buy an SE phone?!
Welcome to the SE life!hehehe.
Keanu Reeves(aka John Constantine) to nick: "Demons in heaven? I'd love to be that fly on the wall..."
Is it true that the macro function for camera shot has to update it's firm ware? because 1 of my friend is having this problem.. please reply me ASAP intending to buy this phone soon..
I 100% Agree
Start looking from ERICSSON days, ERICSSOn came more than 100 years back SOny it self is also very old company, they came together only in 2001. Nokia is using technologies and standards that are invented and written by ERicsson, SONY is doing research in the field of Image processing, digital signal processing and audio processing all baseband related stuff, RF is taken care by Ericsson, Nokia is just using what they get, so all ppl don't try to fool yourself by Nokia
even bluetooth technology has been invented by Ericsson. Wireless Gurus like MARCONI use to work with Ericsson in days 100 year before.
then why not buy an HTC??? Why go for the one with Sony Ericsson written across the top?? There are plenty HTCs with windows mobile on them out there...
well actually the n96 runs on symbian 3rd feature 2 so the interface is slightly different.
there isnt a great deal of difference between the n95 and the n96 because there is barely anything more they can add!
what other features does the n96 not have that it could have?!?! there arent any!!!
anyway i think i will get the xperia because its windows mobile and has a nice 3inch screen, but trust me, if it wasnt for windows mobile and HTC, it would just suck!
@ Dani, sniper supra and nick
Comparing P5 to N95 tsk tsk,
I think that sniper meant something else, that SE finally made a complete phone one even nick cannot say that HTC made (even though HTC HELPED with the X1 not made it, thats why it says Sony Ericsson on the top not HTC and that is what your phone will say on the top if you end up buying it nick).
Nope it would be closer to compare the P5 to the upcoming N96. And you talk about 2 years?? well look at nokia, 2 years later they make what? thats right, the EXACT same phone again!!! duhhhhhh!!! They just add a new feature which is the TV option. Zzzzzzzzz. When is your "new" phone coming out nokia?????
Well even with the N96 there is no comparison, wait for the official features of the P5 to come out. I mean N96 is still a QVGA screen. N96 still uses the same user interface as the N95. P5 will use the new UIQ3.3 which, by the way, supports WQVGA (240x400) VGA (480x640) and WVGA (480x800) resolutions and since the screen of the P5 is obviously not a wide screen then its got to be VGA.????what that??? 4 TIMES the resolution of the N96????? It didnt take SE 2 years to develop this because theyre behind, they are capable of making any phone with any feature they want (as can all the other manufacturers) but they know that the market will not buy such an overpriced product. Nokia did it 2 years ago because they are #1 and they know they can sell it and they were right. SE think they can do it now and i know they are right. They come up with not 1 but 2 fully featured phones coming out this year. I think SE will soon climb up the market ladder.
P5 will definitely have something more than 208Mhz nick simply because it will support VGA resolution and just needs more processor power. N96 goes back to 900mah battery. P5 has that same amazing space saving qwerty keyboard. CANT WAIT!
