I was talking to a slaes person at Telecom as I am considering buying the Nokia 6235 and she told me that they are releasing 10 new mobiles in December. She couldn't tell me what they're releasing.

Does anyone have a clue what they will be? From looking at other threads..so I know there's a Sanyo coming out. Any Nokia's?

I'm trying to figure out if I should wait until December before buying the Nokia 6235.. but I imagine it'll go up in price in December too.

Cheers

Yeah that looks like a great phone... it'll probably have an even greater price.. too great for my budget! :)

I just hope any new phones will push down the prices of the ones on offer now, and after watching the Sunday programme.. lets hope charges will go down too (start a seperate thread for that if you want)

the 6265 looks nice and if they dont get it out soon the xmas opportunity will be gone, the next one I expect to see soon from Telecom is the Sanyo 9000 which wont be cheap either.

Vodafone wise it will be interesting to see if the v3x and n70 make it out this coming week otherwise vodafones promise of 10 more handsets may be caught just short

r0bbie: Has anyone had a play with a test one? is it any good? Hope its not like the Nokia 6255 with all the problems it had!!


They were released today. I picked one up today very unexpectedly, as my 6255's life came to a tragic end yesterday, and I had to replace it. The lambton quay store had posters up, and one in stock. It's still charging, but from the play I've had it's a huge improvement over the 6255. The screen is amazing, very bright and certainly the highest quality screen I have seen on a mobile. Menu is a bit slow to navigate, particularly the video clip folder in the gallery, though this is due to the phone having to generate icons from the actual video.

Photo/video messaging capacity is larger, I've managed to send a 550kb photo. Bluetooth is far smoother than the 6255, and I'm getting peak speeds of 75kb/s with file transfer via my powerbook. The 6255 topped out at 59kb/s.

9.5 out of 10 so far

agreed completely but it may not fit in their strategy
And that strategy would be of Nokia entering the market of selling "compatible, Nokia-branded memory cards"?
