    hey,
    i just wanted to know that was the p800 based on the r380 world since the
    flippy keypand is on both. i like the keypad of the r380 w becuase it
    nicely fits in when closed to make it look like a normal phone while with
    the p800 its obvious and the keys arnt very attracting + wheres the joystick
    on the p800

    regards,
    BaluXP

    Hardware-wise, the P800 was derived from teh R380 design - however, in
    terms of software & OS, the P800 is version 7 of the Symbian operating
    system (versus a variant of v5 of the Symbian/EPOC OS on the R380) Also,
    P800 is an "open" system allowing for 3rd party applications to be
    installed on it. R380 was a closed system.

    As for the navigational keys, true that P800 do not have a joystick in
    the front but do have a 5-way jog dial (a la Sony's design) on the side.

    The design was based on that in terms of partially hiding a large screen
    behind a flip-keypad, but that's about as a far as the similarities go. The
    P800 is essentially a computer, capable of shedloads of things.

    Yeah, have to agree here. The P800 flip is ugly and not flush enough - I
    always use the phone with it removed.

    It has a 5way jog-dial on the side of the phone, which is an excellent piece
    of design pinched from the Sony Z5.
