now available to preorder on phones 4 u website for uk launch on october 1st.. Just goes to show how worried nokia are regarding sales of this phone as is only same price as n95 8gb free on £35 18 mth contracts with orange..i will stick with Up to date samsung innov8 best on the market
I have been playing with this more than 3 days here is my impressions
-n96 not good not bad.
Old creepy qvga screen same as n95 8gb
Speakers are loud in video and radio mode but not in music player. Via head phones sound is supperb but not good sonic experience as n91
Os is slow than n95 but if you do themes effects off than it is much faster
Web is better you can download any file via web browser like .rar .exe
Battery life is so so. I strongly advise those who want one that they wait some time for firmware update because it has lot bugs one more thing is camera is as good as n95 not good as n82
ultimate 3.5 generation handset . once u c it live u must be going to buy. awesummmmmmmm.

Got the phone this morning from local nokia shop in greece. This phone really rock. I've changed quite a few phone latly. HTC dimond, Sumsung inovv8 and etc, all high ends. N96 is the top og the top, 2nd come N96 8gb.
if we are talking about picture qulity then Nokia N82 is the answer. its a camera more than a cell phone.

I agree The materials used on N96 a much lower than the i8510...yet the fact remains the i8510 lacks the nessesary hardware 2 make it a multimedia device....

I had no intention to bring this topic. Why don't you ask that person first. N95 8gb cost around $595 now. There are a list of sites on the left to check. Everytime I think of keeping silence, someone pops in!!

And why are you bringing it into the picture? That phone is already a year old. Like the n96, it started selling at 550 euros and prices have come down since that time.
However, the issue is not the phones, since they are all good. The issue is you coming here to this forum and trying to force your solution down our throats. We tell you we are not interested, but you dont seem to listen.
Can someone share me where to get free 3rd party or plug-ins for video player? Standard real player in this ph doesn't play file like avi.And some wmv file only play sound. Pls help.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2008He he. Is that the best you've got? Its quite obvious you have nothing of use to say. Too bad.... moreOh really!! The price deference between N95 8gb and N96 is $355 as well. How do you justify that my dear. To get added memory and DVB-H TV with relatively poor battery and camera than N95? you guys are amazing.

What question you a... moreHe he. Is that the best you've got? Its quite obvious you have nothing of use to say. Too bad. I've already done my homework and made my point clear. Any way you go get that phone while i get this one. That way we shall both be happy. The price gap should be enough change to get an 8mp digital camera and stil remain with change. He he.
Kenzo, you have free dvb-h tv in your country? That rocks. I envy you. It seems this model is perfect for you. Enjoy. How much is it in SA at the moment. Here in kenya, its going for 550 euros. It wont drop until the next nokia multimedia monster comes out.

What question you are talking about? Where are you getting the price from if the unlocked version is not even out? Which model you are comparing with when you are doing a price difference of 200 euro? There is a huge gap between their previous offering with the new one, be it hardware or software implementation or materials used and added features. The price gap is well justified for what you get. Does EU restrictions makes it a looser?? How pathetic excuse that is.
