N91 dominated all mobile phones for audio quality and loudness back in 2005-07 i didnt see that getting an award for good audio quality. if you ask around and look into forums u will notice N91 had the best audio quality and it was so superior even portable mp3 players didnt not even come close to that. EISA are just dumb people going around giving awards out just like that. they either must have got there ear cleaned after all these years.
ive popped down to carphone warehouse today to try it out and what ive gota say is the W980i sound quality is amazing. but however i took my n91 along with just to compare it and the n91 sound is still way better whereas w980i has volume restriction.
Still no 3.5 audio jack? That sucks.
And I really dont like the hinge.
Good phone anyway.

So what you're telling us is that you know better than the EISA, an organisation dedicated to dealing with audio and imaging devices? the N91 might be louder, but there's more to audio quality than volume. Get a grip and don't start crying just because your phone didn't win...
the world keeps getting dumber and dumber. with ridicolous awards. W980 lol. Nokia N91 still has the best audio quality & loudness in a Mobile Phone nothing has beaten that yet. The W980 does not even stand nothing close to the N91.
btw W980 has EU Volume Restriction where as N91 is a FREE bird lol no Volume Restriction what so ever. Try using Boose headphones on the W980 and n91 or any good quality earphones, headphones and the N91 still beats the W980.

And we can laugh at all the Nokia Xpress music lovers who try to claim that their so-called music phones are better than the Walkman series. Bwa-hah-hah-haaahh....!

(-) there is no light notifications such as for new missed called or new sms, though it could've been implemented
(-) when using the walkman on top in the extrnal screen:
while listening to a song from an album, i cant go back and search for another song in the same album, i have to go back from the top menu.

Anonymous, 18 Aug 2008Can you see caller id and txt msg id on the outer screen?u cant see the missed calls number no, but when u receive a message the text would apear autamitaclly b4 u open the msge
Those ppl who are using the mobi,can u temme if the external screen:-
1.display's the photo of the person tht is set when a call is recieved from the person?
2.display's the video, if a video ringtone is set?
Also can u tell if a user defined picture is set as wallpaper;are the modes, standard and maximized available like the one's in w850i n the like? or wil it be only like a wallpaper set in Nokia N-series phones?
Pls kindly answer..
Thnks n advance =D
am disapointed that this phone hasnt any light notifications like my w960. for example when u have a new sms or missed calls, the w960 will have a green light blinking. this could have been possible with w980.
This phone sound chip is the most advanced! more than the w960 and the ipod, am hearing sounds in my favorite album i never heard before! wow!
when am playing a song from an album, and decide to listen to another song , i have to search from the top walkman menu, for example, i cant click back and search in the same album.

I know that one has to buy the GPS receiver seperately...but what software should one use, i.e., the name and where can I get (download) it? What is the most reliable GPS software to use?
Thanks a lot.
