Now the review
Well the Nokia 8850 is the small, yet daddy, of the Nokia range. For top money, you get a top phone. With a small flip on the front, and cool titanium finish, it is easy to see why it’s better than the Nokia 8210. Using the same template as most Nokia phone, this take it a little further, tidying up the edges, polishing off an already tried and tested system.
Built in Infrared modem
Want to connect to the laptop, you can. Fast access via a seemingly wireless interface. A must for serious business users
In-built calendaring functions
You own personal daily planner built in to your phone. Chuck out that bulky filo-fax and have this little beauty storing your daily reports
Great for those business meeting, and simply reply to it using a SMS message. 100% discrete. Great features
The battery lasts for about 150 hours that is good for business trips where you must pack very little, i.e. No charger.
The software can be connected to most windows OS, but is designed for 2000.
The best Nokia phone around, supreme portability, and generally the phone for any business user who doesn’t want a brick.
PAY AS YOU GO – NOT AVAIVLBE
CONTRACT - £300
Expensive but worth it.
Please note that Nokia are bringing out a new model in the winter, this will be better than this one, and has advantages and disadvantages.
1. You will be able to get the 8850 cheaper, due to been end of line
2. The new phone will be better and the PX value of the 8850 will go down
Its up to you, but unless you are desperate for an upgrade, I would sit tight for a while.
