i should say, you cant afford to buy a new and expensive phone model (n96) that is worse and more outdated than its cheaper predecessor (n95 8gb).
n96 will hardly sell a lot because the cheaper n95 has everything this n96 has. when this phone gets launched, price of n95 8gb will go down and more people n95 8gb than this n96. you cant afford to buy a cell for premium amount that cant even last 4 hours of talktime and that is just a copy of the previous model. it's either people will pass and wait for the new nokia nseries model or buy instead samsung i8510 innov8 that has more to offer and has new features in it! i said and i will say it again, n96 is just a mere copy of n95, added the dvb-h & 16gb, but crippled the processor and 3d graphics accelerator. like dvb-h phones n92 & n77, n96 will go the same path, it will be a market flop. samsung i8510 innov8 is better a lot better than this n96!
N96 for smart and practical users
Samsung Innov8 dumb and impractical people, paying more for feature they don't need. 8MP? 5MP is enough unless your into photography business. Paying more for DIVX when they can enjoy total media entertainment with N96. Samsung will be sold for $1,200 against $699 of Nokia..
To people who say Samsung Innov8 is the king of mobile phone. A king cannot be called a king without followers, in mobile world, sales..
And for sure, Innov8 wont sell much, and the rightful King, now Nokia N95 8gb soon Nokia N96
n95 8gb is better than n96. n96 is a downgrade from n95 8gb. samsung i8510 innov8 is certainly a lot better than n96. just have a close inspection of what they are equip of and you'll know what i mean. n96 in some ways is a crippled n95. nokia didn't even put a good battery in it, knowing that battery is the main problem of n95. there's no excuse for that. anybody can see that samsung i8510 beats nokia n96 this time, unless you're blind.
nokia is the best, people in here talking about samsung this and whatever, but the bottom line is nokia is the market leader for cell phones. they will continue to revolutionize the industry. they sit and watch others rush their products and look for their mistakes. then nokia hits everyone with the good stuff. nokia will always be number one. half of the time why people complain about nokis is same reason some of you posters do, you cant handle the specs and the phone itself. so just get something else if you cant hang with nokia.
Nokia got a big decision to make now is it worth releasing the N96 or not,as they have not announced nothing yet to challenge the Samsung or Sony Ericsson 8 mega-pixel camera mobiles,i was really hucked on waiting for the N96 but now the Samsung mobile as really got excited as its released in August as the N96 might be late August early September or October so whats used waiting for the N96 if the i850 from Samsung is a much better mobile as i haven"t upgraded yet from my Black 8gb N95 an just using a sim monthly contract till something i like become available an the Samsung mobile looks like my Black 8gb N95 an is really worth getting before the N96,so lets see Nokias reaction soon an i bet there kicking themselves taking so long to release the N96, as the others are way ahead of them now an are trailing miles behind them as they like to be the leaders but now there stupid bleeders for there cock-up
its not good asking people to choose for yourself
its your choice.
1. What do I need in a phone that I'll used in my daily life?
2. Do I need 8MP camera or 5MP is enough
3. Do I need DVB-H receiver?
4. Do I need good games with dedicated buttons?
5. Do I need good music player with dedicated buttons?
7. Do I need good movie player with dedicated buttons?
8. Do I need Quick Office?
9. Do I need the best Product Support?
10. Do I need the best Customer Service?
11. Do I need tons of party software?
12. What do I think is the best and practical choice?
n96 has the same battery problem like simple n95.
but n95 8gb has much more good battery by both of them.
u can check the talk time and standby time of all these 3 sets.
N96 will be a huge flop. There's nothing new with this phone. I mean, even a 2-year old N95 is better than this. It doesn't even have a 3D graphics chip and the processor is going backwards, ARM 9?!? The only thing that it does that N95 cannot do is DVB-H. But even N95 8GB is better than this. Who will buy N96? People who will be misled! I'd rather buy a N95-1 and also buy 2 8Gb cards than buy N96 if I want 16Gb in a phone! Much better and much cheaper! Because I can't think of any reason why I should get the N96 rather than any of the N95 variants! Will I get this phone for DVB-H? No! Will I get it for 5Mp? Absolutely no! I'll go for N82 rather or even N95 or 6220c. Will I get N96 because of 16Gb? No way! I'd rather buy three 8Gb cards or a 16Gb card for my N95!

i just learned that nokia n96 does not have the 3D graphics accelerator which is used by fla... morecorrect, if you want to offer a device with a fare price, something has to gave in.
unfortunately with N96 being offered with the same price bracket that of N95 8gb, $480, they have to drop the 3D to gave way to DVB-H
quite fare thou
