Some extracts from mobile-review:
"N96 is a sensible choice only if you really fancy Nokia-branded phones - on all other fronts it falls flat when compared to the Samsung INNOV8"
"It's simply THE most functional solution around"
"Samsung have finally managed to roll out a really top-notch phone that trumps literally every other handset we have ever seen as far as its feature pack goes."
"If you had bought the Nokia N95 8Gb to replace your old N95, and when the N96 got announced you pondered whether or not you would want to buy it too - now is the time to take a really close look at the Samsung i8510. If you are a tech leader, and can't stand compromises when it comes to functionality, then the INNOV8 is the only way to go."
"While some might argue that Nokia has some phones that can well take on the i8510, the truth is, they aren't as fashionable as Samsung's latest and greatest offering and their feature packs a bit thin on the ground compared to that of the INNOV8."
"It compares quite favorably to the ROKR E8 and beats Nokia's solutions hands down, let alone Sony Ericsson's Walkman handsets."
---INNOV8 has already raised the bar to a completely new level. Now all other manufacturers will be trying to reach it, while some won't be able to come up with a worthy rival to the INNOV8 even a year from now.
...and I don't think they are biased.

BTW Thanks for your input Usil, Matt & Anonymous
Oh, and Anonymous, you can tell your Orange customers to follow the steps below and their problems are solved.
I knew it couldnt be open apps as I'm familiar with Symbian and knew of this issue on the N95. So I cleared my running apps and the error messages kept on coming. It's text messages guys!!!!
You need to go into message settings, and change the memory in use to Mass Mamory, this then gives you the option to copy all messages to 8GB, then gives option to delete them from the phone memory.
It's solved all the problems, no more error messages, and I just had 8 texts come in at once that were waiting for me cos my mailbox/phone memory was full. Its even running quicker now too.
Back to 100% perfect operation guys, panic very much over!!!!!!
Striker, 08 Sep 2008Further to my post below - this also happens when I try and save a new contacty, even though I... moreHave you tried quitting all running applications? I know that can cause problems with people who are new to Simbian OS. Run out of memory because they still have running apps in active memory.
Just a thought.
