The K850 IS OUT AND AVAILABLE! GO GET YOURS! I got mine today in Melbourne, Australia (the blue version). Is the best phone EVER! Excelente camera, good design, accelometer, new Media Organizer, flash themes, new games, I LOVE EVERYTHING!
TO ALL (who defend GPS, N95 or Nokia);
This is the Sony Ericsson phone. I'm glad you thought that it was the Nokia forum, but I'm sorry, this isn't the forum that covers bulky phones.
This is where design, meets style, and does not copy from another company, or carpentry item.
This forum deals with no-nonsense phones where in place of a GPS within the device, you can get a headset AND GPS in one, to connect to the phone, and get FREE FULL service and useability of the GPS.
This forum also deals with phones that use their own technology, and their phones, although they may have the same general form, ATLEAST have different details and looks, like the keypad, button locations, camera location.
And rather than moving into buggy, slow techologies in their phone's running systems or cameras, Sony Ericsson kept developing upon their original UI.
So please, let me help you understand that the Nokia forum is the first button on the list, not the fourth. And your N81 is the 3rd and 4th phone while your N95 is the 5th phone on the first line and also 7 down, 3 over. I hope your GPS will also lead you to there, without having to direct you to another phone, or even yet website. Maybe that's what happened. Your N95 failed on leading you back to your forum, and brought you here. Actually, maybe it did help you. Because it made you see that there is a better device then the N95.
But then again, all of this would be true, if you had an N95.
You just proved our points, they're samples, also furthermore, they're pictures from the prototypes. The pictures were pretty grainy and bad from the N95 prototype.
lol, now you're just being stupid. You can't take one look at a map in a convienient place, and move along? I mean, if you don't already keep a map in your car, then you must be asking for a hard time. Don't always rely on your cellphones for everything. I mean, emergency services always asks for the person to go to a landline if they can, because cellphones are unreliable at times.
Y'know, you're pretty funny. You can't remember the direction you came from? lol, if you've been to a place already, you should've known your way around before hand. Either by map, or being there with someone else navigating. But appearantly, you can't bother yourself with that. A GPS or a map is something that you fall back on. You're talking as if your GPS is your conscious, your thought and the thing that memorizes where you've gone. If you're so controlled by computers, then go take your brick, and go to a foreign country and continue your insolent way of life.
Also, I bet you beggars ARE SMARTER then you are, a person who relys on a GPS to get to places. Even so weak enough to HAVE TO USE a GPS to find your way to put your foot in your mouth. Why don't you also use your GPS to also lead you back to your mother, if not, her grave. BTW, don't blame me if you're a few hundred tombstones off, blame your phone.

I agree, moments are to be captured. That's why N95 is not going to be your first choice. From the moment you reach for the N95, to the time you've got the picture saved and the camera ready for another picture, you've wasted a good two minutes.
There is no link for it yet. They don't even update until they sell it for like, a few weeks. They're slow. They've got a price already, just not accepting orders yet.
It looks like they've got no common sense if they're still here, and are still complaining about the lack of GPS. Y'know what?
N95 FANS, DON'T GET THE N95! GO GET YOUR LOWER MODEL WITH BETTER GPS ON THE E65! I MEAN, SERIOUSLY!
If GPS is your life, then just get a GPS phone, not a multimedia phone.
A GPS is just a small part of technology. When you're buying a phone, what do you want? You want a phone with a good quality camera, reception, accessibility (internet & data uses), and multimedia.
Do you N95 users lose the main idea of a phone? If you're going to go on about a GPS, then this website is the wrong website for you. Just go home, please, it's really stupid how your world revolves around a phone that leads you around. A phone shouldn't lead your life, you should lead your life, and a phone should just ONLY HELP you.
Ok, then go buy a 7.2 camera and a rip-off phone with the money that you'll spend on a N95. BTW, you'll also get a tv-out port on your cam, bluetooth printing and wifi on your cam too. If you didn't want a cellphone in the first place, WHY ARE you here on this website?
your right bro.and the camera of this fone is not good.you can see the sample.bad camera!
The K850 price is insanely HIGH for what you get: 750USD. I can have a real digital camera (7.2MP with video real recording) and a normal cell, than this RIP OFF cell phone.
this was almost the dead for N95, SE why the hell you did not added wifi inside ?? You really like to stay the underdog of Nokia.
bigger pixels? thats the point, lost moments can never be recovered, saving it in high quality is what I will pay for. it's not intended to be viewed over the phone. kudos to SE, keep bringing in those cybershot phones.
if your talkin about the communication store as in the one at pmall, how come i can't find the link for 550?
Surely the K850 will kick a** ...of his owners
when it BUG's out in the second week!
I like SE, but the good times for the brand are far-off
Your ups and down of the K850 is just too good man... Now i think the Nokia fans will get out of this forum for good if they still have a little common sense left.... or maybe not :) as usual....
Surely the K850 will kick a**
And last but not least, I don't want a smart phone, nor a phone that takes a minute to start up, or half a minute to take a picture.
Too slow for me.
Also felt the N95, and I'll give it to you, it feels light for it's size, though as heavy as my RAZR MaxxV6. Seems VERY unsturdy, and obvious that Nokia could have made the N95 with more functions, or atleast put in a higher processor and battery while moving around a few things to make way for it, other then the important stuff, like the lens cover. N95= very inefficient, and unergonomic.
btw, the screen's quality is just the same as K850, and you can't call it 'real' dvd video recording either if it can't go any higher then the size of the screen on the phone, when on the TV, without having to distort or smear the quality of the video.
It's 3D GPS, alright, but doesn't have the full functions of it, so you can't call it real.
That, and you're probably getting the UK or HK version of it. We're getting it for the US, fresh out of Finland, directly from Nokia.
Maybe that's why yours are cheaper, being 3rd party retailers and all.
Even better price a tigerdirect.com 619USD for N95, but at least you a real good screen (16m colors), real 3D GPS , real video DVD quality recording.......Paying 550USD for the K850, hahahaha...
