30 April 2006

Crave reviews the Nokia N80 and absolutely loves it – ‘This isn’t the perfect phone — although we’re prepared to say it’s very close. It’s still too big as a viable ‘mobile’ phone, measuring a chunky 50 by 95 by 26mm and the battery life is zapped by the Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. After only […]
