nokia_collector, 05 Oct 2008hi to all Nokia user, the price in saudia arabia for N96 is around 1000$,, why this hi price, ... moreu right...what pple dnt knw is that the input in Asian taigas(china,taiwan,korea,e.tc)is cheaper as compared to europe& americas hence the output should be cheap.,that should xplain why a finish, german made nokia is xpensive than one from china...
i have the fone its great apart from the battery the n95 8gig has a betta battery???? crazy and why bring out the same camera again wheres ure 8 mega??
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2008it does not have fm transmitter. it does not have naviwheel either, only the breathing effect ... moreu r wrong. It does have great vga video recording. But its true that my N96 doesnt have navi wheel features. But review clearly shows it has navi wheel. That means this N96 has so many things to touch up (may be diff countries got diff version too). And I hope everything will be settled very soon.

tom garcia, 06 Oct 2008does fm transmitter and fm radio the same?fm radio is actually a fm radio receiver. it receives audio signal from a fm transmitter. fm transmitter is the one that broadcasts the audio signal to the fm radio receiver.
Chandra, 06 Oct 2008I've had Nokia N96 for a week now. I had the set replaced after it froze while dialling. The ... morewoah!!!i'm now having a second thought of buying n96 with what chandra says.i'm weighing things off coz it's not easy to buy that thing with that kind of price, thats why i'm getting your views and opinions.
I've had Nokia N96 for a week now. I had the set replaced after it froze while dialling.
The replaced set too hangs while using certain featres such as wave secure or m-blog. You got to remove and slide in the battery again to restart.
Anyone else facing this issue?
He boys, I am not a real Nokia fan, but I do not understand people we breaking down this mobile to the bottom. N96 and Samsung inov8 are the best mobiles on this moment, and I expect they will be that during the next 6 months as well.
it does not have fm transmitter. it does not have naviwheel either, only the breathing effect but not the actual touch sensitive naviwheel. it records video in cif 352x288 pixels resolution at 15fps at maximum, not vga 640x480 px at 30fps. that is as of the current v10 firmware. let's see if the next firmware will enable the naviwheel, if there is a hardware for that one, and the vga @ 30fps video recording, if the processor can do that task. but this phone clearly has no fm transmitter because there's it lacks the necessary hardware for such function. but one thing is for sure, this phone ships with an unfinished firmware when you buy it!
don worry people this is the early fw, man i bought the N73 when it just came out and its fw was really buggy it would hang and crash like every other minute....look at it now, its great, samething with N95...the N95 became stable over time, its speed and picture quality where not that great when it came but now its almost perfect the same with N96 it will improve over time and hopefully nokia have learned alot form N73 and N95! later homies!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2008does this fone have fm transmitter.n96 has no fm transmitter. n78, n79 and n85 have fm transmitter.
This device is great solution for those who specifically require video and TV on a mobile. Otherwise, there are other excellent options within the Nokia N and E series depending on preferences. With such great choice and technology on board why anyone would spend over 50% more on a low spec device like the Carbon arte and some so called exclusive handsets is anyone's guess. As far as the Nokia N96 is concerned two models will be regarded as worthy alternatives: N85 and fellow Symbian based Samsumg i8515. However, I genuinely feel that the N96 will sell modestly well particularly after price corrections in Q2 2009.
well the uk have these now (carphoneWhouse) and the box says thay are made in finland and had a go with one and very nice but the battery was a downgrade from the n95 8gb version dont know why nokia have done this
Anonymous, 01 Jan 19705800 and N85 is not available yet. So, how can u buy them? We dun even know how expensive or cheap. N96 software is unstable. I dun knoe abt the other two. And I will stick with N96 untill nokia release touch base N series flag ship.
dude, 06 Oct 2008it is final. there is no n96 finland made. all units are made in china.Yup, everything is made in China, so, if you buy a product, you not only buy the good, but you also buy it's name. In Nokia case, the name "Nokia" that make this phone expensive. I guess, we all knew that.
