Serious issues with the battery of this phone compared to competition. Infact, even compared to N95 8GB thats a big differance.
Also no speaker phone. Thats going way backwards for a multimedia phone.
Only bonus is that is it is a little thinner than the 8GB.
Value wise, have to question this one.

WHAT IS DVB-H TV? Due an upgrade and hanging on for n96 but not sure if it is worth the wait? Just to throw a 'bone of contention' - one of the best phones for reception I have ever had was a cheap Alcatel. No gimmicks but brilliant reception and hands free speaker.

The Nokia N96 Mobile Phone looks amazing and i cant wait to get my hands on one , it will sell out just like the nokia n95

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hey nokia 96 is a better one n honestly its havin vry nice classi features n u cn send me mail on my id its firstname.lastname@example.org
m waitig dear...........t k
of course samsung innov8 is better than n96. even n95 8gb is better than n96. how much more is samsung innov8! even a lot of die hard nokia fans are moving over to samsung innov8 for a worthy upgrade from their current 5mp nseries phone. you don't call it an upgrade if you have a n95/8gb or n82, then you'll head over to n96... unlike n95 which ruled the world for 2 years, n96 will be short lived when it gets released because, not yet released, it's outdated already...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970yeah I totally agree with you I hade a samsung phone and it go so hot would not connect to the computer and it really bugged me and of course am back with nokia and am happy as the nokia n95 does what I want it to, and yes am really hanging out for the nokia n96 it will be an AWESOME phone.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970go for the nokia n96 it will be far better with all that memory it should go quite fast as it all depends on the memory, just like a computer if the computer has not got anough memory it will go slow (I know I go a friend who is in the computer buisness)more memory meads better performence.
go for the nokia 96 (16 gig is alot for a phone.
Nokia N96 release date confirmed!
"Today they've bumped their head and coughed up info on a proper UK release date: October 1st 2008 (which is this year)."
Yeah not what we expected...
Hey...for all you guys out there. This phone claims a dual ARM processor. You can imagine the video playback on a TV screen provided it uses both the processor for video playback :)
Hope it will be worth its waiting !!
The N96 will not be all that great, with all the wait, no touchscreen, the same camera as the n95, nothing really new and its resemblamce to the n81 8gb, I dont think that it's worth the money and the hype. I personally think the n82 is a better value.
I don't like this phone. N95 8GB looks a lot better than this in design.
The phone is sooooooo sick!!!! I like the screen and the memory. overall this can be the best nokia phone i'd seen, but, it's too expensive. I would rather get a Nokia 5310 or 6301. they're so cheap but the're awesome, excep the ca,eras aren't as good as the hd phones obviously and the screen is a little bit smaller. But they are still good phones, atleast their cameras give high quality with also video quality. But overall the Nokia n96 is a good phone that no one can not resist buying.
