When the SE Xperia came out a lot of Nokia fans complained about the price but now who're overpricing their handsets? I agree with the guy saying he would'nt pay $900 for QVGA screen, 5mp camera and big market share. I still insist Asia is far better in technology than America and Europe. All the best Electronic companies are Asian. Japanese, Korean, even Chinese(though known as clones). WinMo is better for me because I have a PC, and so do a lot of WinMo hating Symbian lovers. I wonder why don't they develop their lovely Symbian OS to run computers.
2.8'' and Qvga screen!makes me blind i just bought by sharp 3'' wvga mobile from japan and i never buy this crapy overpriced nokia screen again
Here in the UK my mate phoned Vodafone to ask about a new phone, When he asked them about the new Nokia N96 they told him that 50% of the handsets they had sent out to customers had been returned with problems! Way to go Nokia! LOL.
i have a nokia e71...far far better phone than n96...half the price...better looking...nice features...n96 is all plastic...e71 is stainless steel...nice feel to the phone. n96 is junk!!
900$ for a phone that has nothing new to give and is an exact copy of Nokia N81? No Thanks. I thought Apple was ripping the users with his high price tags but this Nokia N96 takes the cake. I dont blame Nokia, its just that 900$ is too much for a price of this Phone.
Robert, 04 Nov 2008I bought the nokia n96 and hated it I sold it back on eBay the video camera future freezes and... morei do not get it, you had the n96 sold it now bought an i-phone its like refusing to ride in in a rolls royce and then take a ride on a horse cart
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2008first!!!!!!!!!!! nokia n96 sucksNokia sucks just like your childish ''first'' comments. You are a loser
This phone has a nice price tag compared to Motorola Aura (USD 2000).
Motorola is crazy.
Far worse than an arm and a leg with a cough.
$900 for a fat N81 on steroids?!? I rather buy Xperia...
Or maybe N85... Looks like a better value to me.
lol... this is not XPERIA X1 is NOKIA N96
don't mix up with those OVERPRICED PHONE such a shame
when N95 come to market, the whole world also buy at a very high price la
Man... that is absurd... $900??? For about $100 less you are wayyyyyy better off getting an HTC Touch HD!!! What is wrong with Nokia??? Maybe they should stick to selling low-end phones... that´s what they do best...
Seriously, what makes this phone cost so much? 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash? 3.5mm audio jack? symbian OS? Design? large internal memory and support external memory? or its uses the high tech processor? Or..... because Nokia have the biggest share in the mobile market?
Nothing new... probably Nokia got full of these devices crowding their warehouses before they notice that the real thing will be the N85, and now they're trying to make big money out of it. And indeed they're doing it really well. It's not really outdaded, it's just ridiculously overpriced if you take a look at the competitor's and Nokia's own portfolio.
i was shocked, i thought not many people will buy... but still got many people buy it
