here in dubai, n96 is still not available, while samsung innov8 is already trading at around 2,850 dirhams or 35,000 pesos. looks like samsung is serious to mass market their best mobile phone!
Nokia N96 is sold at around $745 here in the Philippines at the moment and will go down to its intended price of $599 in the next few months.
no other phone can beat that in being the best value all-in-one device!
i think ram is too less. then need to check processor specs speed is slower.
Ah... but N96 has a 2.8 inch screen which is better for browsing, texting and watching videos. The bigger the screen, the better!
If I was a Nokia employee, I would commence making studies on just how big a screen they can get away with using this slide form factor: probably 3.2 inch widescreen.
Some people argued before about innov8 being 200 usd costlier. Just want to let you guys know that at plemix N96 is selling for $780 where as Innov8 is $760. $20 less. Anyways cheers!
Its not 256 mb build in memory. its 128 and half of it taken by the system. in total there is like 70 mb free.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2008In this N96 Navi wheel's option in the menu only has the light on and off, it's not a Navi whe... moren96 has no naviwheel! only the breathing light that blinks around the dpad. that's all! yes, n85 is a lot better than n96. n96 is made of poor cheap glossy plastic. n85 is made of a more durable matt plastic. n85 has better looks than n96. n96 is too wide, it's not ergonomically convenient. n85 is just right. n96 has a low capacity battery that no matter power consumption the ui and processor have, it still cannot beat n85's much longer battery life. n85 has better screen. n85 is more solid, no creaks. n85 has fm transmitter. what n96 has over n85 is dvb-h which is not widespread as of this moment, and 16gb internal memory, not a big deal because 16gb microsdhc is already available now! n85 has better camera with proper lens cover, larger lens and longer focal distance. now, which is better for you?
nokia n96 sucks
my friend hav it on asia
they said its sensitive
ill stick wit my nokia 95 n
im ganna buy nokia 85
n96 sucks it break easily
dats all i can say
In this N96 Navi wheel's option in the menu only has the light on and off, it's not a Navi wheel, it's just a light, wtf they called it navi wheel, they cancelled this option without telling anyone cos they wanted it as a feature in their farther release model n85.
After I knew that there's no naviwheel in n96, I decided not to buy it, and probably my n95 is the last nokia phone, cos they are sneaky.
btw, nokia pls keep doing these little tricks so I'll never pay big money for ur stupid design.

Unbelievably disappointed with this phone. Had a play with one in local Vodafone store today. My partner was thinking of getting it on upgrade but soon changed her mind. It feels so cheap, hard to believe it's a flagship handset. Glad I bought the Samsung i8510 three weeks ago, definitely made the right choice.
I just bought this handset 3days ago. I bought this in ebay.ph. It cost 35,300php.
