oled display on s60 is until just recently. n85 which has it is not yet even released. so understandbly, n96, which was in process of being developed into finished product months ago, does not have oled display. same holds true for fm transmitter. nokia has not yet acquired fm transmitter chips before n96 was created. naviwheel on n96 is deactivated in the firmware but n96 has the naviwheel hardware. maybe in the next major firmware update after the bugs are fixed they will activate the naviwheel. i've read also that n96 has 950mah battery because during the time n96 was being made, 1200mah or any larger battery was not yet available. it only means that n96 was first made before n95 8gb. it just took so long to develop this device into finished product. that's why n96 is kinda outdated right now.
guys & gals, pls! This is N85's page, can we have back to this topic...
no FM transmitter, OLED display and navi wheel for 96
N96 has all the features of all Nseries from N70 to N95 8Gb ?????
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970N96 has no FM transmitter because at the time when Nokia was developing this device, they hadn't acquired FM transmitters yet. N78 got released first but actually that device was developed later than N96. That also explains why N96 has 950mah battery only. N96 was developed prior to the release of N95 8GB. It took years for the development of N96 before it was released.
Mariah Carey has the greatest voice in music, has the most number 1 singles, is the sixth richest female celebrity. So don't diss her!
Marzuk,chennai, 08 Oct 2008Sony Ericsson w902 definately beat the update version of both N85 and N79..coz SE w902 is firs... moreNseries is for nokia fans and w90..whatever is for sony whatever fans...so stick ur w902 up ur a$$ cz thats where it belongs and thats what its worth. No offence to the engineers that designed it.. but We ent interested in w902
Sony Ericsson w902 definately beat the update version of both N85 and N79..coz SE w902 is first walkman phone comes with 5mp pixel camera and it has the same w980 walkman equalizers.w980 is recently got the Best audio Experience..its tested by german factory..and w902 provide 8gb m2 card..
i had an N80 and it was neither music or games. The N9x series do come with the 1st of every tech that comes out but it gets transfered to the N8x series when the technmology is developed and fully trusted. N8x is a jack of all trades but master of none and thats why im sticking to them.
Mariah Carey, 08 Oct 2008N96 is named N96 because:
1.N96 has all the features of all Nseries from N70 to N95 8Gb
2.N9... more1.N96 has all the features of all Nseries from N70 to N95 8Gb
n96 hasnt got fm transmitter has it? :-P
mariah carey still makes sense though :-)
N96 is named N96 because:
1.N96 has all the features of all Nseries from N70 to N95 8Gb
2.N96 covers all functions of Nseries:
3.N96 cost of production is much higher compared to other latest Nseries
4.N96's retail price is of premium amount
N85 is named N85 because N8x is just an improved version of an N9x, in the case of N85, it's an improved N95. N85 has a certain market niche - Music and Gaming, that is.
N9x are the revolutionary devices among all Nokia phones. They deliver the "FIRSTS" in the Nokia portfolio:
N90 - first phone equipped with 2 megapixel camera with autofocus
N91 - first phone equipped with multigigabyte hard drive with dedicated audio chip
N92 - first DVB-H mobile TV phone
N93 - first phone with DVD-quality video recording and TV-out
N95 - first phone with 5 megapixel camera, GPS, HSDPA, dual slider
N96 - first phone that combines all the features of all the Nseries including new advancements like 16Gb internal memory.
N8x is the mid-high-end version of the N9x.
N7x is the midrange version of N8x and N9x.
It takes 2 years for an N7x to have a 5MP camera - N79. It takes 1 year for an N8x to have a 5MP camera - N82.
many of my friends are waiting for N85 which will be available in malaysia very soon (should be available bout 2 weeks from now). We are so stuck into Nokia Nseries since we started off with N90 few years back. Heard that N85 will be selling below RM 3k. based on the info gathered, this will the highlight for Nokia in the closing of 2008! it's a re-sized N96 with better features a part from the 16GB build in memory. It's a 'great value' model with lots of expectation! cant wait to experience the 'OLED' display screen and the N-Gage games with it... My up coming champion phone!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I'm waiting for the price as well. If I don't get a price soon... I'm just going to go for the Nokia N95. Dropped to $391 on Provantage.com. Now that is a DEAL!
I have a question. why should aI worry about what number the phone is given? I can see Nokia's idea of naming N96 for the one with most tec model and N85 for the music tec phone.
al, 07 Oct 2008how can you say that N82 and N85 are the same?
Well N85 happened to have an OLED display. USB... morea agree with you.
if u have clear eyes. why don't you read and compare the specs of this two phones?
the bottom line is, Nokia N85 is the best amongts of all Nseries.
I think nokia did a big mistake, naming it Nokia N85. this one should be the Nokia N96. and Nokia's FLAGSHIP.

how can you say that N82 and N85 are the same?
Well N85 happened to have an OLED display. USB connectivity, FM transmitter. a camera lens cover, a blue tooth that will let you do phone book trnsfer with your car, and 8 gb card. Please don't tell people that they are the same.
littlebell, 07 Oct 2008monay,i've facing the same problem v u... wan to know among n82 n n85 which one is nicer n be... morein terms of features, the difference between n82 and n85 is not huge. but the difference in price between them, by the time n85 comes out, will be huge. n82 can do n85 does, and n85 does what n82 can do. only that n82 specializes on camera, while n85 specializes on music and gaming. n85 is newer so it will have the latest technology. choose n82 if you want better camera and more affordable price. or you may want to spend more bucks on n85 for extra media keys, higher battery capacity, latest os, better screen...
