Don't get me wrong....Nokia are #1 when it comes to design & features in mobile phones, but sadly all their hard work is for nothing since their handsets lack solid build quality.
Why is every other mobile manufacturer capable of making top end phones out of metal & glass, but Nokia still insists on using cheap plastic with uneven lines, gaps, & creaks that make the phone worthless in a few months.
Why can't they make an S60 high-end device with the build quality of an 8800 series?
We are already shelling out $500.00+ for their phones, so what's an extra $75.00 for better materials?
C'mon Nokia.....it's not that difficult. Moto can do it, Samsung can do it, SE sometimes does it...hell, even LG can do it.
Why can't you Nokia??
this phone is a baby. sexy, 18GB, 5.0 Mega pixel, nokia is up. gotta feel the fun of havin one of these n96. but still need a n96i

A very powerful release from Nokia, they continue to turn out potent phones that excel in every department. What makes Nokia appealing to me is the ease and familiarity of the interface of all their phones. The menus/layouts are retained throughout the product range with only minor changes so they are easy phones to navigate and use...
hahah you can pre order it at www.plemix.com and its costing 600 euro. With 600 euro i can buy SE xperia x1 which is 1000 times better than this
*****Why Why Why... Nokia Symbian-30 & Symbian-40 can't show Call duration?it can show summary only.
i hate Symbian-30 @ Symbian-40 so much but i like Symbian-60 3rd OS9 because it's cool OS.
anyone should to choose a Symbian-60 3rd OS9 or OS9.3.
believe me.ok?because i'm a mobile phone seller about 10y ago.
Sorry for my english?
THEMAN, 15 Jun 2008whats the diference between...N95 8gb..and.n95 with a memory card 8 gb:|...its the same thing.... moreHi THEMAN,
There is a major difference. The SD Card would have slower access rates than the memory that is directly accessable by your phone.
It would not look like there's much of speed difference when playing music and the such but look at it from a computer perspective: Why do you have to install your games onto your computer hard drive when you can install it onto a USB Drive? The Hard Drive offers faster access/write speeds when the computer demands it when running games/applications.
THEMAN, 15 Jun 2008whats the diference between...N95 8gb..and.n95 with a memory card 8 gb:|...its the same thing.... moreIts almost the same thing. N95 8gb has a bigger screen. For me its nonsense to buy a N95 8gb if u have a N95 silver edition
whats the diference between...N95 8gb..and.n95 with a memory card 8 gb:|...its the same thing...if n95 8gb have been a card slot...it wasn't the same thing
I love Nokia phones and Im also a macintosh addicted. I like the Iphone 3G but Nokia N96 is MUCH better! No doubts! I would get an Iphone cause its going to be so cheap and its going to be released here in Portugal in the same operator that I already have an account so its easier for me. I wouldnt do a new contract on a new operator. If the Iphone 3G come out with the same price of the first generation Iphone I wouldnt buy it.
I used to have a N95 but I lost on a trip to the USA but if I still had it I wouldnt buy the N96 casue I dont see big differences between them but now that I dont have a high end cellphone Im waiting for the N96 release. Carphone warehouse had a realease date for July 31st but few days ago they changed to October!!! I hope thats not true!
I got this from wikipedia and I though would be nice to share.

Actually, my mistake, it HAS been reveiled. 8GB is max it will support. But meh, I'm not going to complain, 24GB will serve me well for a looooonnng time.
iGsm, 14 Jun 2008..well, i cant find any differnce from n95.
1.The dvbh is useless in most countries, plus you... moredude i don't know where you got the N95 with 8gb + 8gb SD card thing but that doesn't exist lol. do your research.
The original N95 has an expansion slot but that only has a small 160MB internal memory with an SD card reader that can read up to 8GB.
The N95 8GB only has 8GB and NO expansion slot. Why nokia removed it is beyond me. Stupid move nokia..STUPID. But it looks like they might redeem themselves this time with the N96 serving up to 16GB internal memory PLUS SD Card reader. The maximum capacity supported is not yet known but it could very well be at least another 16GB.
iGsm, 14 Jun 2008..well, i cant find any differnce from n95. 1.The dvbh is useless in most countries, plus you... moreogm since when the n95 has internal 8gb?? O_o you meant the n95 8gb version but then since when the n95 8gb has a expansion slot?? thats not even possible, yeah you will reach 16gb with the original n95 and a 16gb microsd card but the even that the n96 you can reach futher with his internal 16 gb, and a 8 or 16gb microsd card thats one diference the others can be a updated os an gui, geotagging, and a improve landscape mode, ahh yeah 2 led flash well then i hope you can se the diferences c ya
