When will they supply south africa with this time bomb because we need it a.s.a.p meaning no more joystick please 'PROBLEMS WITH A CAPITAL P'What we need are phones like the w960 and k850i
I think this fonet, the caeras gr8 too. Sony ericson is way aheah in terms of features but i hav found them to be a pain to use. plus they hav a thing for reeli naff buttons, they look painful to press!
I second that Jacob. I have worked in the mobile telecommunications industry (sales aspect) for the last 2.5 years. Over this time, SE has definately proved to be the most reliable phone. Don't get me wrong, some SE phones still stuff up, go DOA, etc etc, but overall they tend to be much better than all others. Nokia is still second to SE.
I work in a big phone company, been working there for almost 3 years now and I have to say SE is by far the best brand. Nearly everyone in my company uses a SE.
Sure about 2 years ago Nokia would beat SE in quality but things have changed. Did you know last year Nokia was the worst brand in terms for repairs and DOA's in Australia?
Hats off to SE again for making another great CAMERA phone and not a phone with everything in it including bugs.
It's better to compare N95 to W960 because they were both smartphones though even announced as a multimedia computer W960 still leads the multimedia segment. yeah i know some may include th issue regarding the video recording and megapixel blah blah on N95's side though W960 has still better multimedia experience than N95 imho.
-->a decent camera(not a trying hard to be decent one, sorry for being rude)
-->better overall music experience, not only the inclusion of visualization on the music player
-->Better native accessories for music, not depending on other brands just to be recognized as excellent
-->and of course the battery/design stability, everything else will be crap if those two essential things are compromised :)
i am tired of reading comments about comparing K850i to N95 and to clarify all of this ONCE and for ALL !, READ THIS and dont disagree coz i am always right!
There are only three (3) things that k850i is better than N95.
1] Camera - that includes other camera features. (ok.get it?)
2] Battery Life - and related to battery longevity. (dont care about any reasons at all why the other one last longer.)
3] Software - (Lesser BUGS and all other software issues.)
* Most of the rest of other technical features goes to N95.
Im neither a fan of Nokia or SE becoz am not that stupid to be a fan of a mobile phone company.
NB: And dont reply to my comment saying "oh no u are wrong coz Nokia supports Symbian and it can make you a cup of coffee in the morning OR - K850i is better because it automatically adjust portrait and landscape on the screen and tidy up your room when you leave BECAUSE i have already explained it at the top where star ( * ) sign is.
Hope thats clear enough to those who cant understand.
this is definitely the best phone i've seen till now. im getting it the moment it's out. totally awesome handset.
lol!!! why will this phone be a legend? whats good about it other than the camera?
it looks really gimmiky and cheap and that whole button in a button thing looks like trouble, not to mention the fact that you can only use this phone when standing still. hmmmmmmm legend? i dont think so
1 year from now, if u buy, owned, feel n use SE k850i...... U are apart from legendary story... cz dis fon will become a legend. For all SE fans, user n anybody out there, my honour to say congratulation n gd luck. Thankzzzzzz!!!!! ;);)
Sony Ericsson ROOOOOckzzzzzz!!! ;)
this phone is great!i will buy this phone.now i have k800i.i like this phone very much!i don't have any problems with it
There has to be a way to buy this phone. Doesn't seem to be on Ebay. Maybe Chinatown in NYC? Small shop or vendor in Taiwan? Perhaps Singapore? It has to be out there somewhere. Somebody knows something!!
addendum.. its k800i, k810i and k750i phones... its not k850i... sorry for the typo error
ive tried nokia n95, n70 and n90... those phones could not even beat the quality of the pictures taken with my k800i, k810i and even with my k850i phones... im not gonna buy another nokia phone... its just a waste of money buying a nokia phone yet you will not get all the features...
i cant wait to buy this phone... i've got 2 k800i and 1 k810i phone and its really awesome using those phones... i cant wait to use this phone... whats good about this is that this phone has already a support for a transflash micro sd memory... its really cool since the transflash memory is cheaper than the m2 and transflash memory here in the philipppines would be cheap... a 4GB transflash memory would have the same price as a 1GB m2... rating 10/10 even if this phoen is not yet out on the market...
do you guys think this phone will be worth waiting for?...im tempted to get the K810i on pay as you go for £149.99 in a sale...but this is luring me with its 5MP..and green-ness
how did you taken pictures or seen with K850 not even available.How would you say n95 camera is better.Just wait when it available then you will see which one is better.
lol@ the people who are getting excited about motion sensor!!! you wait!! you will only be able to use this phone standing still!!
and i second the apples and oranges!
and to the person who said "work fones only need to be able to make calls and send texts" are you 11 years old?
