No mention of supported video playback...
When looking at these high end phones, I am always annoyed that they never cover video support. As these phones are nice replacements for portable DVD players. Provided the codex is right for you.
I am very disappointed in its memory capacity, its very last generation. The i8510 starts with 8Gb internal and you can add 16Gb's, the new N96 thing has 16Gb internal.
The memory shortage combined with no WiFi is a right pain, and these two features really hold the phone back IMO.
I am very impressed (most impressive I think) video recording features. I like the look of it and it ticks most of my boxes.
If you consider it an upgrade of the Tocco, as the author does here, then yes its very impressive. I would like to see the touch screen & camera features migrate across to the next i8510.
Overall I don't think I would be unhappy with this phone even if I had to pay for it.
I think its time for me to try out the search the post above suggests. Then a trip for some hands on. Nothing beats 'hands on'.
