SE's interface way worse, repetitive Interface, its just the same old W800i interface with minor facelift like changing the icons dude. while Symbian is dynamic, compare this Version 9.3 with N95's Version 9.1. hey man i bet you dont even use Nokia, so dont simply guess and say Nokia's Symbian OS Version 9.3 boring.
Im into technicalities in today's technologies, especially when it come to multimedia capable mobile phones..
About the battery thing, Im sure Nokia opted to implement a lower rated battery in terms of Amperes, which matters most, because newer chips like processors boost lower current rating to improve eficiency thus reducing heat. Nokia Nseries cellphones employ these chips as processors, video driver, audio driver etc. One good example is the Intel processors. For Nokia, they utilize ARM and QUALCOM chips etc. That is it. Thank you for the attention!
you got a point there..
and surely, HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro did catch my attention nicely..
however..nah, i'll go for Iphone if it's for a touch screen device =)
nokia are getting really boring with their handsets now, i mean there's nothing really interesting about their phones anymore. why should i buy this phone over anyone else? sure it's got 16gb mem and Tv Funtionality but the interface is still the same - boring. plus the tv function wont work well here until 2012. the only good thing about this is the mem but that's about it. its exactly the same as their other phones - a mean they havent even bothered to change the battery !! i would wait for the market to change and then nokia will start taking all the things consumers want today like a touchscreen and that. i'm going to have a look t HTC, they look like a real contender.=)
for those who doubt the 950mah battery..
dont take it to conclusions yet..
we have to try the phone ourself first, with your daily usage..then we can see if the 950mah battery is really a joke or not
i said this because Nokia said the 9.2 FP2 doesnt consume as much battery as FP1 does..
so i guess we'll see about that..
nah i doubt it dude..
i don't think SE's sales will beat Nokia..
SE focuses their market on teenagers with their W series, and Nokia focuses on N series i suppose? a more multimedia people are their target..like me =)
Well, the design is like N81 and not really nice , but just don understand why the battery is using 5F and not 6F
Sony Ericsson 13.3%
for only 4-5 years SE achieved all of this
until 2010 SE will have 27% of market and until 2014 they will have 50% of market
does any1 know d difference between a micro hard drive, flash drive & internal memory??
got this phone yesterday.
it's very cool.. watch tv with no subscription.. 5mp is great. sound is clear with bass. light weight. slider problem still exists and the n gage graphic is like playing a ps3!
Ive been with nokia for years but its time to change,,everytime i upgrade its just the same thing with no excitement and bored within a few days..
I have got palm treo 500v to start to learn windows again after having the spv range in past and its a great device you have to copy and paste the bluetoothed song from main memory to memory card its a refreshing new challenge..Landscape screen is wat should be on these smartfones like 500v and battery is good got 14hrs mp3 playback after 2nd charge..
I am hoping that my next fone is xperia but its a long way off yet,,,for me if i got n96 (got n82 at moment) its just going to be same again and dvb-h is not in uk till 2012 wen analogue switches off and n82 will take 32gb so the n96 is nowt special for anything..i had a go with samsung u900 today and even that is refreshingly different so nokia has gone stale for me with nowt different on horizon so time to change i am afraid,,but have nothing against nokia ive been with them since 3650 and had many models but a change is needed..
Spotted Viper, 05 Jun 2008I agree on the conclusion that we wait for an LG reply. As you'r seemingly not convinced by th... moreThe LG Secret achieved its objective, which I am glad to hear, because Nokia faces increasingly fierce competition.
If what the Secret does is what you're looking for at a phone, then you have every single reason to get your hands on it. I'll just wait to see what this can do. Until then...
After reading the spec data i was wondered.. Why didnt NOKIA put a better battery 4this baby..? It just doesnt feel right.. But hey who knows what will happen in the reallity world.?
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2008950 mah battery lollllllllllllI agree - 950 mAh battery is a joke!!!
What the hell Nokia was thinking - do they think we are total idiots? We can not read and understand specs!
Guys, anyone know how this DVB-H works? I mean, do I have to subscribe (pay) for the channels? Does anyone know what are the current list of DVB-H channels available in USA?
I heard that the N96 processor is the ARM 9 series and not the 11 series. Is that true? And that the processing speed is only 332MHz and a 128 MB RAM. Compared to its contenders SE X1 and the HTC Touch Pro, the N96 Ram is less and also the processing speed.
What do you say about this, guys?
The_nootz, 04 Jun 2008OK, I agree that LG does have the guts to pack in the power of this device into one similar. B... moreI agree on the conclusion that we wait for an LG reply. As you'r seemingly not convinced by the Secret as a contender for the N96, it's likely you'll be waiting for other LG future releases, only to prove the N96 is their better of course (just kidding) :). Me, on the other hand, will be very content with the Secret if it delivered what it promised, backed by good performance and good battery life.
Until then, have fun. And don't forget to post your impressions after buying the N96, hopefully.
I don't know if it's you, but as for me, i have also been thinking, which device i should get..
i also like Apple's Iphone, but i love N96 as well..
i was thinking, N96 isn't that much different compare to my N95 8gb, but then i'm too used to Nokia and i just can't change to another product other than Nokia..
So i have come to a conclusion..
why not save up a lot, and get all of the ones u want? well not all, but the most ones u want? maybe in ur case Xperia and N96?
doesn't matter if u purchase it like 6 months after it's released, as long as u can what u wanted, u'll be satisfied i presume? =)
