It should arrive within a week. Sadly I couldn't get an 8gb version, but I'll buy some cards for it.

Ah bummer... the 1Gb verison is still basically the same minus a few features. Be careful though, the largest micro SD card they can take is a 2Gb... we tried one with a 4Gb card and it said the card was corrupted and asked if we wanted to format it... we tried to format and it wouldn't do it :(

Maybe there is a firmware upgrade or something for them? I dunno, but either way it's still a crazy phone and 2Gb is probably big enough anyway. I have the 8Gb and so far I have only been able to put 1Gb of stuff on it and I can't think of anything else to add to it!

The 1Gb versions look nicer as well anyway... what colour did you get? The plum or the sand one? The 8Gb is only available in black sadly.

Looks grey/silver to me.

Thanks for the heads up on the card, I'll grab some 2gb ones.

Yeah the front will be silver, but the back will be either a metallic plum or a metallic sand colour... I think the plum looks the best, but meh I ended up with the crappiest colour of all... black. I hate black phones, it makes them look cheap.

And no probs on the heads up ;)

For info, it arrived broken! :O So I sent it back and got an LG Viewty (which is cheaper anyway).

I'll see how it goes over the next few days. It looks very very nice though.

Damn broken? That sucks... also I heard the Viewty has severe software issues, I was recommended by the guy who owns the phone store not to get it. [size=200:5mgoqob2]D:[/size:5mgoqob2]

Hopefully it's not as bad as he made it sound!

I wish the N95 had worked, but I can't find anything wrong with the Viewty yet.

The only annoying thing is the MicroSD slot is under the battery :P.

Yeah that's like the Nokia 6500 I bought about a week before the N95... I ended up giving the 6500 to my wife because she practically stole it from me anyway... the memory card was next to the battery, but you couldn't get it out without removing the battery first, and the SIM card was tucked UNDER the memory card... talk about annoying to change it over for whatever reason.

Ah well.. I don't suppose I'll be changing it that often anyway.

Battery is still full after 2 good days useage, which is nice to see.

I do miss the GPS on the N95 though, handy.

Yeah the GPS is nice, though I wanted to punch mine the other day because it made me go the LONGEST WAY POSSIBLE... I just wanted to test it out even though I knew where I was going, and the trip took an extra 15 minutes (it was meant to be a 30 minute journey that ended up taking closer to 45) to get where I was going. The voice is rather annoying as well... "In 500 meters, turn left. Now turn left!"
