When this is released in the ... moreDo you have any idea what will be the price if all these features are included in a phone? No professional photographer will ever use a mobile phone insted a pro digital camera. And solar panel? What the hell you are talking about? Can you name any digital device which has it? It will never happen because the device will not be able to tolarate that much heat. I am sure someday mobile phones will have 80 or 160 gb flash memory. When prices will come down, it will happen. And everything else of your asking are already available in a device. Heard of laptops?

Some people on this forum continually amaze me. And when you think pointless "wishes" eventually come to an end, there comes another one that blows you away...
Yeah Hayabusa, the next thing you're going to ask for is a built-in cooker, and then a fire extinguisher, and then an electro-shocker, and then a built-in printer, etc... Something to say like "be reasonable" is truly... useless.
What I'm really concerned about is the battery performance, and how the body design is a finger print attractor D:
Otherwise, I'm considering this phone.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2008youre also from the philippines? how long will it take for its price to drop down to less than... moreaccording to our trend here, prices will go down a bit within a months after its original release date and sharp decline will be seen after 6 months if the device will not sell that much
N82 i believe will not go down yet because of increase in demand and popularity, as a matter of fact, it even increase. N95 remains at the same range for quite sometime now, thats because it still is the flagship device of Nokia and the most desired phone among Filipinos, but with the advent of N96, N95's price will drop but not that much. and will remain in that price for quite sometime as well.
slowing down of world economy have hendered mobile phone manufacturers from releasing new high end phones thus positioning N96, N95 and N82 on top of their product line for sometime so they will remain expensive for quite sometime as well

Anonymous, 10 Jul 2008Even if I was born rich I would never spend PHP42,000 for just a phone. If its price is PHP15,... moreits a dual processor of 264mhz, same to that of dual core in pc.. thats (264x2)mhz
it can do the following:
1.)boost multitasking power with improved performance for highly multithreaded and phone-intensive applications
2.)reduce costs and use less power with energy-efficiency
3.)enjoy flexibility and the performance to handle robust content creation or intense gaming with multimedia-enabling technologies built in
This the reason why they put only 950mAh on it.
ill wait for the price of this phone to go down before buying one, for now i'll enjoy my N82 first
Even if I was born rich I would never spend PHP42,000 for just a phone. If its price is PHP15,000 I'll definitely buy it.
There's a couple of odd things I've noticed in the N96:
a)The processor is going backwards. ARM 9 264Mhz? Why? Even the old N93 was equipped with ARM 11 330mhz.
b)950mah battery? There's 3.5G, wifi, gps, 5mp camera, dvd-like video, 16gb worth of music and now with DVB-H mobile tv! How long can you use one of those features with only small battery?

This model does not differ much from the N95-8GB (which I own). When this is released in the Philippines I see no reason for upgrading since my N95-8GB works perfectly fine. n96 battery is disappointing! But by the looks of it the casing aint as sturdy as a Samsung G800's steel body. If Nokia would like me to switch the new phone should be a lot better and offer something new! Like my wish list as follows:
1.> 12MP Carl Zeiss, 5x Optical zoom,
Face/Smile Detect w motorized lens cover
2.> Xenon Flash & Video (120fps) 3LED flash
(LED can be used as a flashlight)
3.> Steel or Titanium casing front and back
terminals (3.5mm,USB & etc.) are covered
making it dust & splash proof!
4.> 80GB internal memory
5.> microSD card support (16GB)
6.> 256MB DDR RAM w 512MB Storage
7.> Dedicated graphics chip 128MB DDR RAM
8.> Stereo speakers (LOUD but still crisp and
9.> 2200mah Li-po battery
11.>3.6" touch screen (16M)w stylus
but still has a dual slide keypad
12.>Universal audio & video format support
13.>Built-in complete office applications
15.>USB (not mini) charging & support
read/write on USB drive,gamepad or
16.>Outdoor functions (Thermometer,Altimeter,
Barometer,16 direction digital compass)
17.>SW1,SW2,AM Radio support (built in antena)
18.>Solar panel charger accessory
* I don't care if its going to be big and heavy (I love a sturdy feel) as long as it packs it all in there w perfect harmony. Chances are if you bring all the devices to perform all these functions it will weigh a whole lot more. Nokia! make it truly a phone that is all in one!
I am sure N96 is gonna be a great phone. If only it had more megapixels(at least 8 to compete with sony ericsson C905) and infrared, this would have been the leader of cellphones. But other than these, N96 is great im sure.
I love the Nokia N96! Everything:) Nokia i beg of you not to put xenon flash PLEASE:) i just lost my N91 in school. so i'd really love to get this one. im only 12 and i am going to starve in recess to buy this baby. :)
