Whats the nokia 8gb?



its a N81 8gb.

Hmm if its in good condition they look to be going for around £70 - £100 glancing at the bay..
Could you not sell the phone and then save up?
As a laptop to a ntebook is quite a big step down ..

How much would you want for the lappy, what spec? It really depends on which items you want more and how patient you can be!

Does what you have do the job?
If yes dont bother.

I'd prefer to wait and get the nokia n97 when it comes out :thumbsup:

also interested in how much you want for the lappy and if you have any pics pls?

Banned

keep the lapto and find some things to sell.

no chance of saving, the money will disappear if i dont use it immediately. thats just how it is with me and the oh lol.

Its only a month old or so, the laptop is nice but i dont use it to its full potential.

It has a T8100 core2duo, 3gb ram, 320gb hdd, bluetooth, webcam, vista business,

in a way, but the camera on my n81, although a 2mp, has no autofocus so not always easy to get the shot i want. i didnt realise before buying it was aimed as an entertainment phone...with ngage and a nice mp3 player.

well i was only toying with the idea of doing it to get the 5800. not sounding out buyers, as the laptop i would prob stick on ebay anyway. i would want to clear £400 on that, and £100for the phone. That should get the 5800 and a nice netbook

contracts not an option :thumbsup: thanks though.

if i were you I'll wait a little bit longer to go down in price £££ And when the n97 comes out where more applications will get developed as they both use the same operating system s60 v5.

Dont get me wrong this phone is good looking but theres no compatable sat nav application YET for this fone so I was a wee bit disapointed when I found out that my sat nav on my n95 (s60 v3) isnt compatible with this fone.

please note most software and applications from n95 & n96 WONT work on this phone unless its compatable for s60 v5. some will work but may be buggy as I found out the hard way.
