The thing is the competitors who have sprung out from nowhere is trying to bring down Nokia by fitting better cameras to their phones. Thats really stupid. why would someone want an 8mpxl cam? i mean the normal regular person. just because some other manufacturer is throwing 8mpxl doesn't mean you have to buy it. the camera of the phone is not everything. for those who don't have any common sense at all should think about this for a minute. where i live, i can buy an 8.1mpxl camera (just the camera with blue tooth) for less money you spend on the SE's 8mpxl camera phone. (buy a proper camera if you're so keen on the camera of a phone)
I have the nokia n95 and like it the n96 will be alot better there are nothing wrong with these phones people just like to argue with each other, we should all wait till we get our hands on it and try it.
herman, 02 Aug 2008This mobile is almost the same compared to the SE c905, only SE has better design. (swedish).
... moreso don't play games then. you haven't got the point of this phone. very sad. SE will NEVER BE AS GOOD AS NOKIA.
you guys are capareing the n96 to a average phone. it all depends on what you want in a phone.
also this is a mutimeadia computer "diferent to you avarage phone" so it will use more battery power, allso lots of people on this site are wingers, GET OVER IT
and be happy ok.
I'm ready for a dream phone. I thought the N96 was what I was looking for it look very much like the i8510. After a closer look at the specs and features I realized that people into TV, pictures and music might choose this one or the i8510
But I will keep on looking because:
* It's dual band HSPDA 3.6 I prefer quadband HSDPA 7.2 Mbps
* I want touch screen.
* 240x320 is at the bottom of any phone
* 2.8" screen it's at the bottom of my wishes.
* No real querty keyboard
* 950ma Battery is really low
* I have no idea what apps are available.
* I'm not sure if it can sync Outlook
I love all the other wonderful features but missing the above specs and features makes it a no-no for me. Not my dream phone yet.
Nokia is playing a very good market strategy..
if theres anybody who were nervous right now, its the competitors. They will not catch up with competitors, there always ahead..
The megapixel battle is nothing but a nomer, competitors crap phones cannot even beat N96 in projected sales, how much more if Nokia will gunned its secret weapons on their arsenal. You know why it was a secret? because competitors will copy their specs which they dont want to happen.
Let the competitors fanatics take the bait..lol ;)
Good news for future n96 users. The 1200 mah battery of the n78 should be able to fit into the n96.
There is a review of the 6210 navigator at smape.com. (im unable 2 give the link at the moment) There is a section which talks about switching the 950mah battery (the same one used in the n96) with that of the n78. Battery problem is solved.
As for the nokia 8mp monster, it has been confirmed by mobilereview.com that it shall arrive around november-december. It has also been described as a pretty good phone. Lets see how the INNOV8 handles REAL competition.
have a look at Nokia N96 with Kang fu, it looks like a horror movie
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Read specifications, it says COMING SOON which means... it's coming soon, no one knows a release date.

Nokia Tube is Comming With 3.2 MP Autofocus Cam , but I m waiting for that Nokia Touch Cellphone Which Would have 8MP Cam!
Why are you people arguing over the 8MP's ?
just wait till Nokia make a 8MP Phone then start comparing, for Now N96 is in its own League with no competitor in its category!
Nokia has good specs, but bad battery life.. start thinking about THAT nokia!
Sony ericsson has always had better design then nokia. They look terrible... blegh
This mobile is almost the same compared to the SE c905, only SE has better design. (swedish).
And SE always gives your more phone for your $$.
This phone does have a better screen. But sony ericsson did this to get better standby and call hours. It's wayyy better. ( It's a phone right??? ) With this phone you internet and play games.. then the battery is empty. That would suck. You can't phone your girlfriend at such moment.
people, just think about this for a second.
no matter how good nokia phones are, if nokia don't fight back other competitors will take over the market. once nokia lose it will not be easy for them to get the top spot back.

life is full of surprises, you might not know that Nokia is coming with a big nag this christmas, just in time for competitors phone to come out, which is said to eat out the already thin income of competitors.. we love surprises dont we?
Reading the early review of the i8510 it will definetly put loads of pressure on Nokia, they have got to announce something Quick to stop alot of its Fanatics like me leaving them an switching to the samsung or even the Sony Ericsson mobile as they say the N96 is not much different from the Black 8gb N95 i have,an to stop the sales of the Samsung mobile out doing them because of the camera an quality of the Samsung mobile just proves Nokias got to release a really top class mobile to cut the sales down off Samsung
