I wish I was in Nelson, I'd buy one for each of my parents and one for myself :(
Anyone got a copy of the advertisement I will ask for price match.

Nelson offer was limited to 30 units, 1 per customer, and started this morning at 9am.
Phones had the $200 voucher on them too.

How do I know. I was in Nelson earlier today, saw the new store and spent $99.

Good luck with that - most of our matching has to be local and in stock. At $99 its worth a try though!

your probably right, as JB Hifi had speakers on special, but dicksmith in chch wouldn't match as JB Hifi don't have a store in Christchurch. They still gave me a bigger discount though, which was good.

nitrotech: Done a wee review here for anyone considering getthing the phone

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y6Yn6IFIbc


I notice the keyboard is a big issue for you.

Have you had a look at graffiti on android yet? (Yes the same graffiti 'shorthand'  input that was on palm).

It's in the marketplace and here: http://www.access-company.com/cgi/nflife.cgi?a=app&aname=graffiti

I have thick fingers and tt transformed my 845 (I used to use Palm's a lot). You can use a stylus or your fingernail and write fairly quickly (certainly much faster than someone on an iphone or ipad keyboard).

TheUngeek: Nelson


The money I save on the phone would pay for most of a 'grab-a-seat' fare to Nelson. 

A subsidised holiday. :-)


(I used to live near Motueka....nice part of the country).  


Good idea but the benefit would be lost going from the airport to NL and back again by cab..

It's worked on Vista for me...and I think on WinServer 2k8 64-bit. ....I don't have Windows 7.

If you are doing what I did when i got it, i think you need to go into the phone's menu and 'mount' it. I think you can access this menu through the notification bar where it should have a comment about the USB connection.

I think...not 100% tho

Edit: Worked fine for me on Win7 x86

Hey all,

Seen the update for skype lets it download and run on the 845 (its in the market now)?

Does anyone know if the v8 rom on xda is any good? And if skype will run on it?

Yeah, looks like a excellent phone. My only question is, does it work on 2 Degrees? I know most vodafone phones do, but I reckon that 2 degrees have got my best deal. Please tell me.

Mine is on 2Degrees. You get good data pricing in the four main centres (Ak, Wn, Ch, Dn). I get the $20 / 1GB option. But outside 2Degrees data coverage area - ie: everywhere else - you have to buy $6 / 50MB "National data packs" (30 days, use it or lose it - buy another one if you need more)...which are actually Vodafone being wholesaled to you via 2D, IIRC.
