Whats a good Comparison phone?
A. Quadband phone, best possible service, 3g technology, something that can allow my laptop to work online anywhere i am thru the phone,
B. Gps nav software, something that i can use in my car or boat or walking around..
c. texts, e-mail abaility
d. video/pics at least 1 Mp, with high storage memory.
So far the Nokia N80 has come the closest to all my demands.. but seeing that I live out here and the possibility of waiting another 6 months for some new US version..
What other phone is comparable and powerful enough to what i want.. price is not...
Great phone, but expensive
A while back I had a Nokia 3650, an early Series 60 phone that I really liked. I imagine the software's only gotten better in the meantime.
The big missing feature with the N80 is composing email using a QWERTY keyboard. If it had US 3G, I would pick up the E61 for sure. But the E61 is only 3G in Europe.
I live in Chicago, so will be sure to head to 545 N. Michigan Avenue around June 26 if there is a cool 3G phone to be had there.
I Have One
I have Tmobile.. Do I have to wait for a US Version?
Do I have to wait for one that works better with US networks to come out? or will I be set with buying the current unlocked one for my Tmobile.?
I would rather wait to get one unlocked that works with US Networks better if that is coming in the future..
Someone please help clarify?

Is there anything different about the number pad on this phone that allows for easy input comparable to a Palm phone?
One more question: Do you know if the Freedom Mini Keyboard will work with this phone? If that works, maybe it is small enough to carry with my daily.

Why Make IT a SLIDER??
Understood that it packs in 3G/ 3MP camera, wifi and some good stuff in general.. but why make it a slider.. start off with a thick candy bar phone and than work the way down to a thinner slider when nokia has mastered the technology and the footprint..
Yeah I love it BUT...
I was set on the N80 for months. Seems like the '93 kinda pushed the N80 into being outdated? Seems to me like US customers could care less about having a convergance device (much less BUYING one... after all we are all about FREE PHONES). There doesnt seem to be room in the US for an N80 AND an N93...
