Default N80 is out in Grey Market (Delhi)

Hey Guys, Just got a news today N80 is out!
In morning he quoted me 32500 in eveng wn i was abt to leave office to pick up the set he said prices have been increased due to non avialibility of set...
at the same time I know if I wait for another week I can get a far better price and with a bill (hope so)
but these are just impulse buying for me,
so gonna grab it tommorow morning,
let me know if anybdy has some idea about better pricing
I had read some set of reviews from other countries, people are satisfied
W.A

Finally N80 in my hands,,,
it is a marvellous gadget especially 3 mega peixel camera rocksss
here'my babe MIRAGE , the first pic taken through camera


I found this phone of a perfect Size
One thing that I really like about is it says the name of person who calls afetr giving first ringing tone, pronounciation is not that clear,but its fun...
I read reviews about N80 that it has stereo speakers, must tell u, its next gen stereo speakers, I found them gud enough in comparison to my X phone (9500)

Cheers

hey unknown,
Its like I purchased in black, just 4 sets came in the market, since everbody is aware of growing grey market, wr u can get even ur firmware upgarde, so no tensions of taking bill or without bill
I know the importer pesonally!
I bought it for 33K,, dont react its just am a impulse buyer, i know price may crash down with ina weeks time but may be by that time I lost my crave for it

they still dont have any clue of launching N80 in market officialy as they are promoting their current sets.....
Cheers

a4_attitude.... any idea that what is the price of the N91 in the grey market.....nokia are supposed to come out N91 with a tag of 34 k...so maybe we can get a hint of N80 when nokia releases it....

Also dude....i did a lot of dig up on the N80 and it is supposed to be fast....not as fast as the 6630 but faster than the N70..can you help me with the speed !!! Also i heard that the focus thing in the N80 is very sad...can you give me an update on it......

hey Deven,
N 91 in grey is about 29K,,,
I also did lot of digging that makes me curious to go for it
about speed I cnt comment much, because i dont have much in my cell, its working fine,,,,
the basic funda of focus is like all digital cams, like u hold half a button to let it take focus and then press the full button, to take the picture
Infact this is gud that this feature is automatic here, otherwise there will be some 3 second difference in pic u take, which is irritating....
so its gudd,,, u can save the picture I have posted here and thn zoom it
atleast am happy with it
btw do you have any clue how to transfer contact backup from my computer to N80
problem is backup of 9500 will work on 9500 only..:(

i know that problem.......i have a 9300 whoose backup can only be restores on series80 softwares.....well....back up from computer....hmmm....the thing is the last time i tried making a backup and then again coping on the cell....all the contacts did transfer but half of my phone numbers did come........What i suggest you can try...is make a backup on your memory card and then restore it from your memory card to the other cell.....

a4_attitude....i more thing i wanted to ask....was that i know a person in UAE and he is sayin that he is already experiencing some problems in the N80...
I quote "
first of all, when i connect it to the USB cable it wont allow me to use the phone as mass storage device or browse the memory card unless my text messages are stored on the phone memory! what gives? anyone having this problem?
also, my Video is set to the highest quality(mpeg4), and the playback quality is extremly bad, it's very pixilated and noisy even during daytime. The N70 video quality surpasses the N80 video by miles!!!!!"

Are you too having the same problems......
