Australian recommended retail prices:-
Samsung i8510i $949
Which one offers the best value?
nokia nseries phones are the phones that people love to discuss on the web. apple iphone is the type of phone that more people love to buy than discuss.
bottom line: web popularity doesn't determine the actual sales figure of a particular phone. in the case of nokia nseries, these are most popular and most talked about phones in the market BUT their sales are not even near iphone's sales figures.

and analyst predicted a rebound for nokia in the 4th quarter since anticipated phones like N96, N85, N79, E71 and 5800 was thrown in this quarter, it will bring a healthy boast in nokia that will be felt till the middle of 2009
the upcoming nokia event in feb will unveil new and cutting edge phone that will carry their phone sales mid 2009 til the last quarter 2009
samsung never predicted taking over nokia for the least 2020, apples target is only for smartphone market and they dont really have something cutting edge to offer as of the moment, so they cant grab the smartphone market either..so u will have to wait until then.. cheers!!
nokia is aleady losing its popularity and they are going down! go read the news! it's either samsung or apple that will take over nokia's spot. what a shame!
can u all pls shut up? iphone is the best selling phone of 2008. n95 8gb is the best selling nseries phone. n82 is not even in the top 10 of the best selling phones this year.

For Nokia not to be ready in the lead up to Christmas is a mistake, the same goes for the 5800, why is it taking so long to release?
Customers will only wait for so long before buying something else.
Emerging markets go for what people can afford, which are more the low end to mid-range phone's.
In the biggest market in the world (China) they just make their own.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2008Has N96 caught up to iPhone sales?in US nope but worldwide, yes it will catch up for sure, have u read d news that iPhone struggle to sell in emerging markets? their biggest selling point s US, lets wait for bold moves of Nokia to conquer US and they started by releasing 5800 and bringing N96, N85, E71 to them via AT&T and Best Buy, it will surely shake up the US mobile market
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970what n82 is cheap phone! it's most popular phone of 2008 if u dont belive then go and just ask 2 nokia about dat.
Considering this forum is more a hate forum as a technical forum, the value of the comments is almost zero. Samsung lovers try to let drop the quotation of Nokia, and Nokia lovers are doing the same to Samsung.
Some people even go so far to use many different IP addresses to vote as much as possible and make the score worthless.I have the N96 since a small 2 months and last week in Hongkong could play with the inov8.
Both are excellent phones, plenty of functionality and both suffer the same illness , Battery.
Which one to buy ? I bought Nokia because of the world wide service but follow your own feeling. Inov8 and N96 are almost perfect mobiles.
Voletina, 15 Nov 2008The best Nokia I ever had. The best Nokia I have is N82
(1)gr8 camera with brght xenon flash
(2)Best gps performance
(3)good quality sound in handset but little bit little bit disappointed in loudspeaker
(4)fast performance if compare to my sis n958gb
kuldeep kumar, 16 Nov 2008its good phone to useya it's gud phone for dat person who have lotz of money 2 waste. but if u dont wana 2 waste your money then go with n85,n79,n82 and n958gb.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2008Has N96 caught up to iPhone sales?if you try to base it in US sales, iPhone sold more there than N96 but iPhone is facing also stip competition there with Blackeberry, if iPhone doesnt offer somethng different in US next year, they are expected to loose against RIM..
if u based it on worldwide sales N96 feared better than iPhone, have u read the news about how iPhone struggled in India? was iPhone succesful in Asia and emerging markets? here in the Philippines alone, globe telecom is having a hard time selling the phone no matter what gimmicks they do and smart telecom, the biggest telecom in the philippines is preparing a big event for n96, there only waiting for the national telecommunications commisions approval. that would boost N96's sales here
besides apple only promotes 1 phone compared to Nokia which has to promote hundreds of devices
