can someone tell me does this phone has free gps with voice navigationa like nokia navigator?????
@All, who says NOKIA is useless.
Look NOKIA is giving people what they want and the way they want.
I have a N70 which is more than 30 months old.After having all the funs with it for two years now i am using it as a edge modem.
I gave my 18 month old N73 to my cousine and he is using it without any problems at all.
Now, 2 months ago i bought N82,it has everything i could ask for.
You guys say useless,hmmmm i wonder why?
Look guys i dont say NOKIA is the GOD of all manufecturers but i can surely admit that they are the most reliable one.
About N96 well if you see any other fon from samsung or se with that lot of features or superior please inform me.
I do not agree with Ying and his rhetoric on the N96. Dual high current LED flash is no match for Xenon. Compact digital cameras need to be conscious of size yet NO manufacturer has considered LED because it is an inferior solution. The fact is that Xenon produces more light power and only microseconds of illumination is needed. The fact is that to save space Nokia chose an inferior solution.
Another point is that Nokia overpacked this device with features. They already have TV phones in the N92 and N77. There was no need to add DVB-H to an already overburdened device. Anyway what is done is done but then they need to power up the battery. No amount of optimisation will make up for the weak battery. It is time Nokia sat down, meditated and improved lightweight high powered batteries instead of blitzing the public with a plethora of features that cannot be adequately powered.
I think people don't yet realize what incredible device is that! It may look like same old Nokia but the company itself has overdone! They could have done maybe a little bit better over the design and ergonomics, and not least the battery. 950 mAh will only offer frustrations for the owners. But anyway THIS IS A PIECE ART WORK! IT'S TOMORROW! IT'S THE FUTURE! IT IS "SF"! Just take a look at its specifications. There are no "NO"'s. It has everything and above.
im not to excited about n96. Samsungs g810 seems much more promising as far as symbian based mobile goes.
WOW...this one is making my current phone looks like an ancient discovery...stunning...
YING! YES YOU YING! FINALLY AN INTELLIGENT PERSON EXPLAINED EVERYTHING! I TOTALLY AGRRE WITH YOU!
Most people really don't know what they are talking about!
Most people are inconsiderate of a company's market strategy... consumers always want what they wanted and never consider the business of Nokia...
Some consumers are very UNREALISTIC AND ILOGICAL on the upgrades they wanted in a phone! of course a phone could not upgrade that fast... it needs to have transition... and this n96 is part of the transition... NOKIA will be bankrupt if they increment their features too much in a short span of time! it must take little by little...
NOKIA is original and logical in their decisions! it must be a balance of consumer and manufacturer! not only Consumers will be favored! that's all
just hate all of you people saying this phone is crap...must have xenon flash... blah blah blah...
Could u ever name a phone that has all this features in this compact size? Duh! u couldn't even name one!
DVBH + 16GB + HSDPA + VGA 30 FPS CAMCORDER ETC... NO phone matches all these FEATURES!
WAKE UP! WAKE UP! U DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT U ARE SAYING...
And for people who says this phone was not a worthy upgrade over n95 8gb - CLEARLY u dont know how to COMPUTE!
n95 8GB to N96 have MORE INCREMENTS or CHANGES than n95 to n95 8GB! see my comparison...
n95 ---> n95 8GB (changes)
8GB internal memory,
128 mb RAM
And the PAGING thing(forgot the exact term)
memory card slot and lens cover was even REMOVED!-what a pity! the Menu layout was changed too
n95 8GB ---> n96 (changes)
16GB internal memory
DUAL LED FLASH
PORTRAIT AND LANDSCAPE MODE GAMING PLUS DEDICATED CONTROLS (the n95 8gb has portrait only and dont have the comfortable gaming experience)
MEDIA KEYS in PORTRAIT MODE! (again this adds more ease while u are using the phone for music playing! opening the slider several times just to change track is really ANNOYING!)
3.5 MM JACK was moved at the top for easy access and handling while the phone is in the pocket
KICKSTAND (i know this is maybe a small thing but THIS REALLY MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE COMFORTABILITY IN WATCHING VIDEOS!)
Other changes include decrease in THICKNESS, and increase in height! - personally i would want a phone that is thinner but taller than a phone which is thicker and shorter - why? because it's much easier to hold in the hand!
to people who says "why is there no xenon fflash"- hig current dual led flash is actually better than xenon... need explanation? http://www.mobilehandsetdesign...N2JVN?pgno=1
And to all people who says NOKIA SUCKS!... u are simply HYPOCRITES! NOKIA has the largest market share! they hold about 40+ percent of the entire market! EVEN IF YOU COMBINE THE SHARES OF SAMSUNG, MOTOROLLA, AND SONYERICSSON THEY WOULD NOT EVEN BEAT NOKIA! THAT'S REALLY PATHETIC! THREE MANUFACTURERS(actually four because sony and ericsson merged) could not even beat NOKIA! I guess that would explain everything!
NOKIA is simply the BEST and LEADING cellphone manufacturer!
Good to see that Nokia hasn't given in to the flush touch screen keys for call/hang up etc.
Those things are annoying as hell.
Stick to the buttons please, thanks.
Why does everyone love the Nokia N Series phones? They are all useless with major recurring problems. I work for Vodafone and KNOW this. This phone will be no different.
