I just bought this handset 3days ago. I bought this in ebay.ph. It cost 35,300php.
The N96 is a very disappointing phone. Was not a it seemed to be especially from what people have said. Phone felt flimsy and cheap, looked cheap also and very fidly to use. Not a phone I would reccoment to anyone. My friend and I have just changed our phones and got E series phones which will always be better that the N series stuff. The phone was very slow and and it did not do the functions well enough.
The N96 is a disappointing "upgrade" to the N95 8gb. Nokia really need to clean up their act and make sure that the N97 will be a monster like the N95 and N73 in their days.

The bottom line is
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2008 there is no cellphone retailer in the philippines that's stocking this phone because it's so ... morecheck Ebay.ph, its sold at around Php35,600. I have a strong feeling that the price will dig down to Php28,000 soon.
This phone is awesome i just had a trial from vodafone and its much the same as the n95 8gb but the style and performance is great also no stalling or freezing of programs like on the n95 8gb when loaded with music its a nice phone
vicdiaz, 28 Sep 2008why is it that this phone is not yet available in Nokia smnorth? i was looking for it last sep... more there is no cellphone retailer in the philippines that's stocking this phone because it's so pricey. you have to order it first and they will get a unit for you.
Nokia, you fu.....rz !!! the micro usb is not standard!!! for all the money i paid for it you could have at least put a standard micro usb to fit any micro usb cable. idiots!
( i mean, of course, I looked at it before i bought it, but anyway...)
otherwise this phone is a miracle. the gps and navigation actually work! The maps for eastern europe are far from complete however.
I'm going to be getting my N96 on Tuesday, and I'll be posting a review, experience blog and you can follow me on Twitter as well... I hope that this will be a good way of people getting a honest opinion of the phone and debunking/confirming some of the things that have been posted in this forum. There are more details at fluiddynamic.co.UK
