cingular + Nokia = crappy phones and service!
Alas, we are just to backward to enjoy the complexity of a 2 megapixel camera or video calling camera.
As the owner of a lobotomized 6682 (no push to talk, no 3g, no video camera for calls a la the Euro-spec 6680), I'm glad to see other Americas will no doubt be relieved to buy overpriced service plans and over-sized hardware with few of the supporting services and features that make life so complicated. A job well done folks!
if the 6282 had the N80's camera and WiFi...
only 1 M.P.?

It's no secret this is header for Cingular, and it's also no secret that they are also getting the N80.
My guess is that this was made 1 megapixel instead of 2 to make it...
i'm not impressed
i used to love nokia. but no more.
i'll stick with my treo 650.
when will they ever materialize?
I waited for the 6270... Q4 2005 is gone almost, no phone? All thise phones come out but none show up in the markets. I think they just put out computers for the hell of it, too make market share, but in reality they do not have nothing....
