N96, N85 and N79 are quite disappointing products from Nokia. These are just more or less exact replicas of N95 8GB, N95 and N82. They don't differ much in terms of functionality. They are created to give customers plenty of options to choose from. So, Samsung is taking the lead this time with their all-in-one multimedia powerhouse Samsung INNOV8 and their touchscreen flagship device, Samsung OMNIA. Nokia loses to Samsung this time. I think Nokia should fire the engineers and designers who developed N96, N85 and N79. Nokia is always behind other mobile phone companies when it comes to innovation. APPLE which is not even a mobile phone company was the first to revolutionize touch based screen devices. And it took 2 long years for Nokia to create their iPhone version! Nokia is stuck with 5MP camera phones. While all other mobile phone companies have their 8MP camera phones already released in the market. Nokia is paying attention to lousy innovations that don't matter like DVB-H. Nobody needs it since its not yet widespread and I think it will take at least 5 more years to become fully available globally. N96 was released too late. 16GB cards is now available. N96 should've been released a year ago when news about 16GB cards was not yet flourishing so people would be excited about it.
Anyways, don't get me wrong. These are just my opinions and I believe everybody is entitled to his/her own opinion. And Nokia should listen to my opinion because I believe my opinion is right!
And don't get me wrong again. My remarks are constructive criticisms unlike most opinions here which are purely rubbish! Hahaha!
Nevertheless, I still love Nokia. And I'm still going to buy an N85 because I'm a Nokia fangirl. Hahaha!

Bakekang , 18 Oct 2008279 euros + 21 euros TAX (minimum) = 300 euros x 66 pesos (forex rate) = 19,800 pesos SRP So ... morephp 20,000.00 is much cheaper than what is being sold(by globetelecoms) for the iphone3G.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008If u have the money wait for N98. 7.2Mpx camera 3.5 screen high resolution 5 optical zoom ... morebad joke you cant have optical zoom like 5x in a slim mobile i.e. you gotta have a mechanically peeping out lens for that.
Jonas, 23 Oct 2008How bad,, it looks very stylish and unique, but if it some sort of plastic,, ow what a waste...almost all phones are plastic nowadays.. also, this is a midrange phone. expect it to be affordable and imperfect. if they made this stainless or of another metal, then this will no longer be midrange but in the levels of Arte.
just be happy that it is feature packed.
Incorrect INFO this cell phone is already in stores, and i saw few girls using them.

The Nokia store in NYC actually had this phone, but not on display. They let me see it, although I could not turn it on and try using it.
I have to say, this phone is very plastiky and feels very cheap. It is also very bulky. The design is not good at all.
billions of nokia users were waiting for such technology to be introduced by nokia ,,, i really cant wait to touch this phone
