definitely not worth upgrading from N82!
the price does not justify the extra features
Well I thought samsung i8510 was the only phone giving the n96 competition. Never saw the samsung i900 OMNIA. Thinking of upgrading to it in the future. but not too sure about games. And its cheaper than the n96!!!!! The N96 is the most expensive phone on the market but not the best. Go for the Omnia or wait until Nokia brings out some thing better.
nokia said they were going to announce the N79 an N85 today but not seen any news about the new phones at all,an hope Nokia don"t take as long releasing these two models,as i was really dying to get the N96 but its dragged on to long now so will wait an see if i8510 is worth getting or wait for Nokias 8 mega-pixel camera mobile an Nokia will release this one i bet on xmas time

2 low current high illuminating LED's......
1)They use multiple tyms less power
2)They much smaller
3)They much compact less space acupied
4)They Record video
5)Use as a torch....
So if u want Xenon go 4 the N82
does the camera have a xenon flash like the n82 (or one of the standard flashes that the n80 and n95 have)?
it has a little talk time because of the processor used. Faster processor means bigger power consumption, it would naturally mean that dual processor equals almost twice the power consumption of an ARM9 chip.
If nokia won't use a more powerful battery, actual talktime would be a nightmare!(considering that the usual talktime advertised is the "ideal" talk time gathered in theoretical situations, it would be worse if it would be used in real life situation)
Sadly though, unless nokia is also developing a new battery, there is none available in the market which has twice the capacity of the current battery used by N95 8G.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970We obviously know more than u coz we not falling 4 a feture that we dnt even need.....
Im hapy with 5mpx....
Don't forget that it has a bulit in DVB-H receiver for digital tv viewing cost free, getting rid of expensive streaming tv through your operators and giving 10 times the picture quality, and the first of few DBH-H compatible phones with an actual watchable screen, 2.8 inch!!
I agree the Interface of the Nseries is not pretty, but software wise it is the monster truck of this generation phones, 5Mp Carl Zeiss with double led, DvD like 30 f/sec in day filming, Ngage gaming application with beautiful graphic games unlike the java crap, DBH-H Digital TV receiver, 2.8 inch screen, Mp3, Mp4, DivX, Tv out, and all the thousands of symbian compatible software and applications making the possibillities endless, bluetooth and all the neccesary stuff + it´s a phone :), what the hell do u want? Its a phone, a camera, a videocamera, a jukebox, a movie player, a dvdplayer with the TV out, a digital tv receiver, a gaming device, a portable memory unit, a torch, what the hell do u want, the only thing left is making it into a remote control, a swiss army knife and microwave oven..
the best and unbeatable piece to be comin in for a few years now............
undoutedly da best...........
It would be awesome phone, if it would be available long time ago... is it hard to develope this mobile?... it's nothing new, all same with other design, those 128mb ram, processor(better/not better than old, nobody knows) and much more... htc touch diamond come, htc touch diamond pro come, and were announsed after n96, and they're available a lot of time(htc touch pro - not a lot, but it's new)... Come one nokia!We need new!Change that symbian, i didn't liked symbian on n82!Nice features, and NOT NICE interface... what about touch screens?qwerty keyboard?... all stuff is not new, we have same n96 in n95 8gb... i think nobody need those 16gb( had iphone 8gb and it didn't feeled of memory lack...) The one mobile that i liked n73( i have now n73me), not cheap, main functions, all symbian features that provide symbian(so all programs compactible to same n96).... and 8-series models, going to get se walkman w960 or 8800 arte or htc touch, maby xperia x1, but NOT N96 in cause of it's LATE release!
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2008whats even worse for nokia is that they allowed samsung to use the S60 platform!
what are t... moreNot only Samsung, but a recent joint venture in Symbian is planning to create an all new symbian open platform system.
SE and Moto are contributing UIQ assets
Ntt DoCoMo is contributing MOAP assets
Samsung and Panasonic own around 16% of symbian
Ericsson holds a stake in symbian
Nokia holds the outright majority of 56.3%
http://www.symbian.com/index.html Take a look, many hated manufactures that Nokia fanboys will see that many phones are becoming based on a merging symbian interface. S60 is porbably stil lthe best out of all the sysmbian interfaces.
As for Nokia's production, Samsung makes alot of TFT LCDS (Along with sony), Processors can be sourced from Ti all the way to Hyundai, RAM is usually Hyundai or Daewoo, The camera sensors are probably sourced from Sony, Memory can be made by hyundai or Toshiba. BOTTOM LINE: N96 is not COMPLETELY made by nokia
hsdpa frequencies network
n96 900/2100 hsdpa ??????
Damn this phone is hot. If it can be launched sooner it will be the bomb. cheers to the brain behind the makin of the phone
