OK sim-free it is quite pricey, but on contract you can get it for free at just 30 quid a month.
As for the camera, it is similar to the n95 and you can hardly say the picture quality in that is poor.
i hate nokia, their prices are very high and they quickly fall after u buy them! plus they have a very bad camera! bad battery life, i charge my phone daily! N96 is nothing special, there is much better mobiles especially in this v high price! like samsung INNOV.. omnia.. SE C905!!
I am absolutley devasted, annoyed, upset and furious that Nokia are making huge profits by simply upgrading a phone and making the phone already purchased "out-of-date".
This is very cunning, who agrees?
But I do admire the N96 though. I work in a mobile phone shop and the N96 is quite descent.
v week, 06 Nov 2008looks good but bad battery life and software made me take mine back! sorry nokia but you have ... moreWas that with the latest firmware?

batman, 06 Nov 2008in sa its way 2 expensiveIn Australia it's $A1149, way too much.
Nokia should think of Africa to. Their products are very expensive.How many people can afford the 400euro per fone?
Kenzo, 06 Nov 2008You specul8ing that the Bl-6F bettery will fit in the N96 Bay with cover closed just becoz it ... moreI agree the battery in the N96 goes in sideways in the center of the phone for one thing, it's a totally different shape.
OMG! this phone is SO MUCH OVERHYPED. it's overhyped simply because of its name, "N96", just like why iPhone is overhyped because of its name! and it's oh so super expensive, 900 dollars for NOT the best mobile phone! i'd rather spend 1,000 dollars for the best mobile phone, INNOV8, than 900 dollars for the not-even-good N96! it's a waste of money! every site i come across is proclaiming, "Samsung INNOV8 is currently the best all-round multimedia device!" and this "N96 is the most overhyped!"
Dan, 06 Nov 2008It should. The n95 8gb 1200mah battery managed to fit in the n95 classic perfectly. N95 classi... moreYou specul8ing that the Bl-6F bettery will fit in the N96 Bay with cover closed just becoz it did in the N95-1.......pleas i need facts.......coz review sites all say the same thing....."it dose not fit wen tryng 2 close back cover..."..
pleas post a link 2 a video if u'v got both the N96 & N95 8GB.....
Why would people pay Around £400 for this Mobile, as its got More or Less the Same Features as the Old N95, Nokia just Cashing in on all the Punters. I rather spend the £400 on a Nice Laptop.
Kenzo, 05 Nov 2008Ok.....so u saying the BL-6F bettery fits in the Nokia N96 bay.... with the back cover closed?... moreIt should. The n95 8gb 1200mah battery managed to fit in the n95 classic perfectly. N95 classic uses the same battery as the n96.
