Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i think your dreaming and you haven't read more enough
its just that this phone had something to offer, cutting edge in mobile phone technology, dual processor.. hmmm
lets see the real score when this comes out, keep posted, fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.. you might be left behind c",
hmm it is said in the nokia dev website...that this phone uses a single core processor clocked at 392 mhz....
they downgradsed from the n95's dual core processor to lessen the price....and it is said that this phone doesnt have a graphics accelerator chip...
but it seems the new processor will be handling all the graphics stuff...
how this affect the battery performance I guess we will soon see hehe^_^
LoveGod, 14 Jul 2008Just a n95 8gb with some tweaks and small addons. Go see Samsung i900 Omnia and dump this, you... moreThis phone is way better than Omnia, look closely on the specs. Facts don't lie c",
Anyways lets find out how the battery will perform on its final release versions, if dual processor have help this phone conserve energy thus making it last longer like that of laptops.

Just a n95 8gb with some tweaks and small addons. Go see Samsung i900 Omnia and dump this, you will regret buying it, aspecialy with this battery. Don't do it if you're smart
Good news ! I met one of my friends last week . He had bought N96 from 3 month ago . I asked him about the CPU . It was 550 mhz !!i don't know why gsmarena has written 264 mhz ! it didn't have any delay for opening folders , even 0.5 second ! But the battery is worse . 2h and 48min for talk time , 200h standby . All of these infos were written in its manual . i don't think Nokia is liar !!
Wow solar power devices! What an age we live in!
Hayabusa, 13 Jul 2008the electro shocker is a good idea. Actually i left that one out. thanks for reminding me. Bu... moreYeah, you're welcome. One last thing, you might add an atomic battery and forget about the solar panels. No hard feelings, I just thought that you asked too much. And the things I suggested adding to your wish list were because you *can* squeeze more out of it.
Now about the freedom of speech thing, I never had anything to do with that, and I couldn't forbid you to write all those things (*that* might be a violation of speech freedom) even if I wanted to. But making a comment about your wish list is just... my opinion, nothing more. My ironic statements were there just because you might have exaggerated a bit.
And you should think about that, too. That maybe that anonymous statement was right, that your dream phone might really cost a fortune, that nobody has tried adding solar panels to devices like the N96 etc.
Look, you might search for something that is closer to your wish list, even if you don't forget about it. Take the new 8 megapixel Samsung, or this device here. It is not us who make the phones, we only choose. So it is still a matter of choice.
iolo003, 14 Jul 2008This phone is not pressured by the presence of C905 or i850. This phone exist for itself, bein... moreyes it is. xperia and c905 is one of the most anticipated phones coming out this year. along with htc diamond. samsung not making final announcements about i8510.?
for sure even SE does not have good sales, n96 will be compared to those phones.
i don't need extra MP because with 5MP i could get great pictures already. thats good enough for me. what matters is i have a good feature to enjoy in this phone, Live TV thats not present among the competitors. a total multimedia phone
shadowed_angst, 14 Jul 2008I wonder when Nokia will make another surprise announcement to shock its competitors; you know... moreim sure there are many weapons coming out as a surprise from Nokia, thats what we call marketing strategy
I wonder when Nokia will make another surprise announcement to shock its competitors; you know, the same way they did with the N82. Announcing a new phone that is iMmEdIaTeLy available.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2008this phone is in intense pressure against samsung i(whatever) and sony ericsson c905.

Hhhhmmm?!? more of a mismatch..
Good Luck SE and Samsung Friends
