i wish this fone has infrared port,camera lens like nokia n82 and xenon flash,CIF front camera,12.9 megapixel camera.only the difference between smamsung i850 is the 8mp camera and the optical mouse ehich make that more expensive than nokia n96.im wid nokia n96...............
when it comes to innovation samsung is the best. when it comes to marketing, nokia has the lead. i love nokia but i love samsung also. samsung does everything from appliances like flat irons, electric fans, television sets, lcd panels, home stereo system, dvd players, mp3 players, mobile phones, d8gital cameras, video camcorders, washing machine, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, airconditioners, computer hardware, memory chips, sound chips, lcd screens, processors... everything that involves man's activity, samsung has a part. imagine life without samsung! lolz!
this website says that n96 starts shippin frm 15th august.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970if you haven't known by now, sony has already been bankrupt by the late 1990's. they have been off for several years then they decided to merge with ericsson. they provide hardware for ericsson and ericsson is the one responsible for the software of sony ericsson phones. despite their team up, sony still did not manage to recover from its loss and bankruptcy. sony ericsson is at the 4th of market shares in mobile phone industry behind nokia, samsung and motorola. today, sony is now on producing small time and low volumes of electronic gadgets like mp3 players, digital cameras. samsung has overtaken its position as the number 1 electronics company in the world and it is still, up to now.
how many persons have us1000+ to spend on a phone.some dont even have us450.innov8 will not be a top seller.too expensive.the phone will get boring in a week or three.
who owns symbian now. nokia. that means they can make all the changes they need to stay on top.
are you serious? nokia went back to a BL-5F? this thing better have some serious battery power conservation
Samsung has durability issues not only with mobile phones but also with the rest of their products, tv, ref among others.
Its because their throwing low grade components and parts on their products and devices as part of their marketing strategy. This people in Samsung have sicked minds c", just thinking about profit without considering durability. thats why their not cathing up sales in every fileld their competing into.
They should be filled with worldwide case for maligning people c",
Buy any products except Samsung, you dont want to waste your hard earned money dont you?
I cant imagine putting out my Nokia N82 Black for Nokia N96 or Innov8 or C905 c", reality tells me that my N82 can do most of this coming phones does, good and quality pictures, 30fpm video recording, DIVX movies with just installing a 3rd party software, got everything I need, sweet!
My next upgrade will be a touchscreen, maybe next year when nokia releases its most awaited S60 touchscreen devices, not tube tough, I'm waiting for the flagship touchscreen. Trust me its very cool.
Its inevitable though that Nokia N96 will be the overall winner in sales between the innov8 and c905 because its more affordable than this two, $699 against $1200 from competitors. Added specs and feature means additional cost.
N82 rocks my world ;)
Can"t wait to read a Review of the Real N96 on any website as i was really looking forward to getting the N96 but with the Samsung i8510 being made available before the N96 an is made available before the N96 ,is this phone from Nokia phone better than my Black 8gb N95 as some reviews says not to much,an will we paying extra for certain features on the N96 as i am sure some cost will be added by networks for the tv function on it,i got the Cect N96 but the size of the phone was longer the my 8gb N95 an the screen size the same so hope the real N96 is alittle smaller in size
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2008Bottom line is: with the advent of 8mp camera phones from other manufacturers, and with N96 st... moreI dont think that the N96 wil be a flop, cum on wen has a Nokia phone becum a flop. Look at the N95 its a crappy phone with poor battrey power but still people want it even today. People still have the mentality that Nokia is still the best manufacture of mobiles, believe me the competition is on and tougher then before.
plwh888, 04 Aug 2008I speculate the delay behind N96 is the DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, DVB-H is not really ready... moreThers truth in wat u saying..........
i4 1 im thinking of geting this phone bt im impatiant......
i think il go 4 the n95 8GB insted
I speculate the delay behind N96 is the DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, DVB-H is not really ready for prime time and I believe not many countries support it either. Singapore does with the irritating MobileTV on her buses, noisy but am sure if its works with DVB-H or not.
If N96 comes without the DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, then it will become just N95-16GB.
I think Nokia makes a big mistake by naming it N96 when it should be named as N7X in response to the other DVB-H phone. Now most of us are getting mixed up that N96 is N95 replacement when it is actually not.
If Nokia dont release this soon, people will get impatient and switch to Samsung INNOV8, but if Nokia release it sooner, people will find themselves with a useless DVB-H receiver and yet paying for it.
Guess Nokia is facing with a Chicken and Egg situation now . . .
If INNOV8 comes along, I will just say goodbye to N96 . . .
Crystal, 04 Aug 2008which one is better....n95 8gb or n96...want to buy 1. but is it convineant to use?The N96 is definitely better. but the thing is it is yet to be released...
