you cannot have a multimedia device that is a powerhouse in candy bar design.slider design allows more tech to be added to the phone while the size is decreased.
becool, 24 Aug 2008I don't talk about other new cool phone coming next or no 3D graphic chip, processor with fp2 ... morecould not agree more with your comment battery life is still low no matter what they have done with internals,, 4 hrs plus is considered minimun back when my gx10 was out,that passed with just over 4.5hrs talktime,,no way buying this i know nokia to well with bad battery its going to be worse than n95 original,,stuff that all over again
why nokia is not giving us a complete product at least one.Nokia should at least add a xenon flash as on N82 with a single led flash for video recording then it will be an almost complete camera phone.Plz say nokia to think.
damn, that looks ugly as sin. Features are nice, but I'll stick with my N95-8GB for now.
Kuldeep, 23 Aug 2008Yo dudes-----m waiting 4 this n desperately wana have hands on it as apple iphone in india is ... moreKuldeep mate i am sorry to tell you but i think the N96 will also be nearly the same price at the beginnig but prices will fall gradually.
That's what i was waiting for! It has wonderful features. Hats off to NOKIA!!!!
innovates reign was short live, now LG is the main phone with its superior specs and form factor compared to innov8. and its a touchscreen. And what more do they feared of, Nokia's very own 8MP touchscreen which will be annouce anytime from now, Innov8 will surely be left to dust.
N96 will be release by October, a sure thing compared to innov8 or LG or SE and will enjoy the best attention and sale together with Nokias iPhone counterpart, The Nokia Tube..
Eat all the dust.. Innov8 Fans
nokia n 96 is a great multimedia cum official fone. its have a great function of dvbh technology which 95 have'nt. but 1 extra feature which 95 have is irport which 96 have'nt. and battery backup is also less then compare to 95. So i give it some less point compare then 95.
it is simply amazing, nokia is getting it spot on
it is a piece of art

what are you talking about? apart from the n96, nokia have been a step ahead. the n95 when released was miles ahead of anyone. in fact most phones today dont come with as many features as the old n95.
look at the n82's camera, nothing beats it!
the n73 was miles ahead too and the N80. what are you on??
mohammad-IRI, 23 Aug 2008It is attractive and the best cell but it is 98% it cause infrared 1% and 1% touch screen Dear Mohammad , i checked a website for buying N96 from internet . When i was checking its features , it was IR there . Really , i promise !

In its package , N96 has a kit somehow like its battery (about size) that is charged with N96's charger . With this kit ,you can charge N96 completely 4 times . :-))
This phone great but one thing is why nokia company don't add xenon flash for this n96. It would be great if in got xenon flash

what is more concern is batery life.... if battery life is not up to mark to support the application for long time then Nokia needs to come up with stronger battery. Otherwise before you enjoy multiple application ur screen starts flashing "Battery LoW" which definatly none of us would like to see.Lets hope for the good battery performanc
Nokia N96 is based on Symbian OS 9.3 S60 3rd Edition FP2 platform and this platform does not support touch-based functionalities. Nokia will release their first ever touch-based device on Symbian OS 9.5 S60 5th Edition UI in the form of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, a midrange alternative to the Nseries, due to be out just before the year ends.
I don't talk about other new cool phone coming next or no 3D graphic chip, processor with fp2
It's seem a cool phone when N96 was announced in Feb, after half year later, NOW!? it is still not even ready... I think we should be calm to think about is it still WORTH waiting for?
We all known that this device's talk time is only about 220mins(not even 4 hours), no matter how big storage that nokia offered, after we browsing some website or youtube video, listening some songs or playing games, the battery light should be flashing, we don't really have enough time to enjoy those 16gb internal plus 8gb card slot, and beside, we have to worry and be carefully using those apps to save the energy, I haven't mention the GPS or TV usage so far, sigh...
The phone has been delay again and again, it must be something gone wrong, and when it is out in Oct, Nokia wants 550=800US from us, it's like they just too proud that people would still line-up for their brand because they have lots of fans not really care what nokia added on this device, these fans would still think it is charming.
Perhaps we have something better in Chrismas, be a crazy fan with no regret or to get something right and worthy is always your choice!
