MWC, 20 Oct 2008W980 is a fast handset. It is deffinatley faster than the W960 b/c that runs on Symbian phones... moreYeah I agree you, in fact the audio quality of this phone is almost the same with the ipods. But for you to know, it can't still overpower the remarkable Iphone & N91 pedigrees which have higher dynamic ranges per test results.
Love this phone. Battery life is terrible, but the multimedia experience more than outweighs this.
Good looking phone, very light and cool.
Good fone.. but the price is still unlogic..
I believe there should be asolution to the fm transmitter problem. If anybody knows a way to unlock it or bypass the restriction pls post it here.
thats really stupid IMo why nokia n78 hasnt got such a restriction and u can transmitt your songs through the fm easily but w980 has got this restriction? noone wants and actually cant compete with radio stations or do something wrong with this fm transmitter as far as its domination is not more than 10meter, what did they think to put such a restriction I really don't have any answers for that! Im very pleased with overall performance of my new cellphone but this stupid act has really disappointed me

Anonymous, 17 Oct 2008Can sum1 plz tell me if this is as slow as the w960? i hope it's not...plz let me know. the re... moreW980 is a fast handset. It is deffinatley faster than the W960 b/c that runs on Symbian phones like all Nokia's which is why they are sooooooo slow now!!
Even fast while playing music if you need to go through your menu system :-)
Hope this helps. :-) PS WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE, better then iphone/N95/N96
the keypad only blue colour?
i was wondering.. if i can have the screen with the date and time everytime i close the phone? instead of pressing the button on the side.
because right now when i close the phone, the external screen goes to the music player straight away.

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008transparent part will change colour or not?yes it does =]
its either white or orange.
white for normal and radio.
orange for walkman, and it flashes with the music rhythm, but ifu find it annoying, u can disable it =]
transparent part will change colour or not?
It is not as slow as w960. W960 has a different operating system than w980. W980 is reliably fast. About the battery, it stays with me about 3days of moderate to heavy use (music, texting, calls).
Hey, i was thinking of getting this phone.
The thing is i haven't seen it in any shop, so i would have to get it online. Therefor, i need to know: is the keyboard small?(i'm a big guy with big hands :D) is the battery good? is it worth it? i mean all i like is the FM transmitter.
I would be choosing between SW W980 and Nokia 6500 slide, and i haven't made up my mind.
Any help is welcome. :)
peeps, i would lyk to ask is this fone or T700 better? pls give me some comments. i'm getting a new fone in a day or 2. i dun wish the fone i get to disppoint me. tyvm ;D
