16gb of memory is nice but i'm not to impressed with the look's. I'll stay with my n95-1, but when the garmin nuvifone come's out i just might buy one!!
hey hey guys,dont you think tht nokia is the only phone company in this world,but sony have many advantage,they have the technologie of walkman,vaio,cybershot,playstation,bravia..can u imagine when they combine all tht tech. in a phone?!!!in will way better thn the N96,im sure tht every SE fan will think like tht..just wait..
950mAh battery. So...phone will last all of oooh 30mins or there abouts. If you are putting all these features in with the phone then at least up the mAh to over 1000. This may be the only disadvantage of the N96. Oh, and I hope they implement the same GPS module as the 6110 Navigator
HAHAHA!!! dream 0n, fanb0y! h0w can THIS b a "legacy" wen ur fav c0. RIPS 0FF its cust0mers every 3-4 m0s?!!! dream 0n, s0n! dream 0n...
oh.yes,nokia n96 can be a legacy for nokia company.very very excellent.its fascinating.i think sony ericsson or samsung company can't compete with this phone.its good to go out from competition for them.be sure.
Yeah i agree with you, bro.. they should give phone models to last up to 5-year duration before its depreciation.. like car models, example is a Mitsubishi Lancer, they change models every 5 years before another model is brought-in..
I could care less of design like most people here. Its like street racing, who cares how sleek your car looks if it gets smoked on the road? What bothers is these marginal improvements every few months. Every manufacturer should tone down the releases. Give phones a 2yr life cycle. Not just 3-6 months. Seasonal upgrades is too soon.
The N96 looks nice enough... just like the N81... concerns are that the keypad once again is dead flat... is this a sign that Nokia are sacrificing fundamental functional design features for the sake of looks? I hope the N96 will be more stable than the N95, but as a smartphone you have to expect some issues. As for size there's only so much you can fit into any chassis and make it affordable, if you want something smaller then get an N81 or N82 dependant on your feature focus, but don't expect EVERYTHING, because they simply CANNOT please everyone. I will never buy one because of my knowledge of the poor reliability of the N95... once bitten twice shy, and I'm in no way a Nokia fanboi, but if this is released it WILL be extremely popular.
oh yea and i think really did feel back when they released a 8GB version of their phones as people already bought the original, the 16GB is probly just a regualr feature like the 5mp camera becoming so common, i mean its doesn't even say 16GB next to N96 at the top left if the phone, in all other mass memory built in phones nokia writes the capacity
dam man 16GB memory, wow man this is something but never the less i still love my N95 8GB!!!!!
so you just wasted 1000 whatever currency on 2 Nokia's
this is why Nokia Sucks!
to many phones at 1 Time!
im staying with SE !!!!
So many people commenting are complaining about size and design. I'm a huge Nokia fan and honestly, no matter how bulky a Nokia phone is, I have been satisfied with the dependablity, designs, features, and durablity of the N Series nokias that I have owned. Stop complaining, or go get a motorola!! LOL!! I hate Motorola by the way...
the sliding is very much similar to the n95 but the looks is almost the same like n81... plus the size ahould be reduced now, its still big n bulky... well its almost official, i hope they dont make it official yet, something with better colour n design should be used for the coming n96.
still waithing for nokia s60 "touch" at the end of this year or for new produckts of htc based of new platform "snapdragon" whit 2new chips.n96 is same s... .
AHAHAHA!!! i th0ught as much!!! n0kias' started t0 c0me 0ut wit the 16GB FLASH mem0ry just like apple did a FEW DAYS BACK!!! wow... im so IMPRESSED wit n0kia just c0pying 0ther manuf. features, first the GB space, then the t0uchscreen functi0n ala iPh0ne(upc0ming s60 devices) heck, they even c0pied their 0WN design fer this 0ne(n81)!!!
