26-04-2002, 03:04 PM
Since im working on a huge overhaul on <!-- BBCode u2 Start --><A HREF="http//loonyworld.homepage.dk/9200/" TARGET="_blank"><B>The skin department</B></A><!-- BBCode u2 End --> and the 7650 is so near you can smell it.I´d like to know about the GFX´s that can be altered on the 7650.
The wallpaper..YES..Witch size is it ??
I wanna throw up lots of 7650 wallspapers on The skin department as well..
That would be nice, right ?
But is there anything else...(Icons, Menubars, ect, ect)
You know me...IT HAS TO BE CUSTOM !! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif

I thought I'd throw my oar in too (C;
As the skin master has said you can't have a PDA without custom graphics, how about courtesy of symbian myself and Loonyworld are supplied free 7650s and P800s for skinning purposes. Perhaps we shoul start a poll and a campaign for it. Maybe a car boot fair and bingo night. Maybe I should have posted this in waffle (C;
Add me to that list, personally I'd like to size up the 7650 against the p800, don't you find it a bit strange that nokia did not implement the latest version of the symbian os on the 7650. As far as i understand it's running version 6 whilst version 7 is running on the p800. Needless to say that version 7 looks very very nice against ver 6 !!! i wonder if there will be an os update when the phone has been around for a while ????

You know, someone in the P800 forum said it will cost £450 sim free. Which means that the contract price will be very close to the 7650 price. Too close for comfort if you ask me. If everyone gets the P800, then I fear that third party support for our beloved 7650 will fade.......
I'm thinking about getting a P800, just for the Memory fact, the 7650 is a great phone, but the memory is a big issue for me. It limits the phone so much. With just a little bit more it could have been so much better.

No need to worry about 3rd party support for the 7650. The *FULL* development kit for the P800 still costs a small fortune, too much for small companies to buy. Especially with the 3650 around the corner (By that i mean next year) there will more support than ever for the 7650. The P800 is unlikely to sell anywhere near the numbers that the 3650 will. Another point is that £450 sounds far too cheap. People have a tendency to create 'information' when posting on forums, i'd expect it to be priced higher by SE but i'd LOVE to be proved wrong.
Man I concede the P800 looks like it has a few advantages over the 7650 but damn I hate the look and design of any sonyericsson phones they need to stop spending so much money on developing deaturees a put a cpl dollars away for comming up with better designs for their phones.

The upcoming 3650 does look UGLY with a capital U, with 120 pt font size. On paper the only advantage over 7650 is the video capture and maybe the express on cover. Let's just wait and see how much Nokia wants for one of those and what Early 2003 actually means....

The MMC slot is pretty big feature too, as is the tri-band opporation. Both are real features, unlike tacky plastic covers! :) Dear oh dear Nokia.

Hey its not just plastic covers
yes the P800 does have some nice sdvantage sbut gees the design sucks sooo much it looks so well shit.
and Nokia with the 3650 what were they thinking, did they get ericcson to desgin that phone or something. I mean whats the deal.
I think the 7650 and the 8910 or is it the 8950(the titannium) one are the only two phones which designs reflect a modern and futuristic look.
