    That is a nice looking phone is right. I'm sure it won't be available on CDMA anytime soon. Still pretty sharp though. :D

    Well, it's a tri-band GSM handset and as high-end as it is I would think that Cingular would get first dibs on it like they did with the RAZR. I wouldn't count T-Mobile completely out of the running but I'm about 75% sure that Cingular will offer this phone first when/if it is released in the US.

    Thought I would resurrect this thread. The Nokia 8801 is being released by TMobile Monday, 6/12, at least in the Boston area. Held it in the TMobile store on Newbury St. today (high fashion street, high fashion phone, for those not familiar with Boston). Price will be $559 with a 2-year contract :eek:

    I thought it was pretty, but quite heavy. I like the functionality of the slider. The D-pad is small and the select button in the center is very small for me, and I have small hands. The soft keys are rounded ridges just under the screen, which would take some getting used to. Wanted to test its EDGE/Web browsing speed but in 3 min of trying I couldn't figure out how to enter a URL :confused: and the sales rep couldn't help me. Going to T-Zones brings up a Search box, and the Options key doesn't have anything like "Go to address", "Enter URL" or equivalent. Strange...

    Needless to say, I won't be getting this, and neither will my wife who actually has TMobile. :) She's more interested in cool design than technology, but she wasn't impressed by the 8801, and especially not impressed by the price. :D As far as looks go, she liked the SLVR-like Samsung (T509) better.
