    Nokia 8 Sirocco, I believe was what you were looking for...

    ...when I was "a baby G in thought" the 8800 Sirocco was one of the sexiest sliders I ever saw...

    The initial point of Android One was Pixel like update support. We will see.
    Yeah that phone! Thank you. You're right, we will see for sure.
    I'll have to google that 8800 Sirocco you mentioned though, since I have never heard of it.

    Edit: Apparently you can buy it and have it in the US for possibly less than or equal to the XZ2C. Interesting. Welp, no band 12 or 17 so never mind...

    I don't know if I have been living under a rock or something but it seems to be that Amazon finally started selling the XZ2C with the US warranty. Full price though but I thought this started next week. Added to my list though to watch it.

    They used to sell those for between $800-$1000 back in the day. The equivalent now is Huawei's Porsche design phones from an exclusivity standpoint.

    I'm tempted to go on eBay hunting for a N86MP or a 8800 Sirocco. The N86 was more practical - camera was very good - and the Sirocco had sexy design but a weak camera. We'll see.

    When you are in grad school, living under a rock is common place.

    On eBay I see the N86MP for under $100 and the 8800 Sirocco still for $300+. I think I can use the N86MP as an iPod if I don't want to do music via the Pixel. It does have a 3.5mm jack too. We will see.

    Haha, I guess so. I was super tempted until I read the first review there. Good stuff but the front camera is worse over the last gen apparently so now I'm just crushed

    If I were smart I'd find a Pureview 808, but those cost money. Still, the N86 8MP is something I could travel with overseas in some unscrupulous place and not worry much. Same with a Blackberry 9550.

    That is true, but the latest rumors for it are all dumb. Thankfully, I watched a video of a guy who said that basically. I just hope that it is casually announced next month. I don't see it happening this month at all but what do I know? I might be wrong.

    I have upped my general saving goals in prep of me buying this phone or a phone that I can be loyal to. Saving goals not for the phone but for my life plans....

    What are N8s going for? They take amazing pics too.

    I believe that they do, I can only imagine. I can picture that being the case for sure with those phones.

    There are some phones I'd be happy to travel with overseas from the nostalgia camp. Moto X 2013, Nokia N86 8MP, Blackberry 9550, Blackberry Bold 9700. Well, maybe not the Moto X because that's something still worth stealing. But definitely the others as no one cares about those things. Sadly, last summer I threw away the box I had for the 9550...unused accessories, including a soft case, headphones, etc. Sad, really. Almost made me want to get one.

    No one is stealing those from you. Only experienced hands would want those.

    Quick update.
    My Eve V crashed spectacularly yesterday. Can't do anything with it. I guess it doesn't like 1803 April Update.
    Going to the Microsoft Store to see if they can restore it to the previous version of Windows.

    Oh no, I hope that they can. It seems like the April update is problematic for various computers. :/

    It is isn't it. I've been to Gotham a boatload of times but never in the spring or summer to see t-storms like that. Yes, I'm that Floridian that loves to go snow skiing when everybody is bailing for the Sunshine State.
