nah, i don't quite agree..
nothing's perfect dude, that's what it's all about i think..
almost perfect, yes often that happens, but there has never been a perfect phone yet
w800i was good, but remember, it was missing 3G at that time, compare to N70 that came out around the same time? it has 3G..
so i reckon N96 is good enough, makes me drool enough to get it =P
Hi all. Every time I'm about to buy a nokia phone, some specs really set me off. Take the N96. It's sure a killer, just with a catch... or a handfull of. Take size for ex., it's v. bulky. 2nd, battary life :(. 3rd, great camera, but why not xenon flash?! 4th, DVB-H TV, not likely in my country before say 5,6 yrs, so why not also an ordinary local tv receiver?! it sure 'll be a cool feature. 5th, why not a doc editor?!.... I can go on forever.
Problem is other brands are no different. All are trading off one way or another! I miss the time of one-phone-got-it-all, speak about my good ol' w800i. Best camera, best music, highest internal memory at its time. Won't these days come back? who agrees?
On the internet there are the CNet N96s available an i have just bought one to get used to the N96 before it becomes available on the 31st July at a unbelieveable price £599 sim-free so this mobile will not be a much after mobile to everyone,after all the hype about the N96 it will not turn out to be good seller for Nokia
ya i agree
suppose it came out in August, i will wait until January i think, if no news announce of the next flagship, then i will buy this phone..
i envy those ppl who have lotsa money and can just get any phones they want, anytime, anywhere =(
If you're going to use the DVB-H feature here in the beautiful country of the Philippines, it's absolutely free. But I don't think the battery will last long in watching TV bearing in mind the large screen and other radios put into it. So for potential buyers, hold your breath. If you already have a N95, better stick with that for the moment. If you don't have a N95, better get one or a N95 8GB than N96. It's not impossible Nokia will release a revamped improved version of N96 later leaving early buyers regretting and miserable for their impatience. Nokia always do that! Well, unless you have a lot of money to waste, then buy this unpredictable phone as soon as it gets into the shelves.
any of u think that Nokia N96i or Nokia N96 music edition or maybe even Nokia N96-32gb edition will come out?
somehow i have a feeling, not long after it's released..the next gen of the phone will come out..
and we'll be like...ohhh sh*t damn u Nokia..i should have waited..bla bla bla...well kinda like the case with N95 then N95-8gb came out i guess, i know there's a gap around half a year, but still..isn't it frustrating to see Nokia releasing a better one when we just got our hands on their flagship phone?!
To tell everyone honestly, for sure the first released of this is will be loads of bugs. Just like the Nokia N95. This phone will be perfect only if Nokia give it a longer battery life. This phone has so many features that the battery will not be able to support it for a period of time.
Nokia N96 Expected To Ship In July

oh my god..this phone too bad..slow+bad lcd+heavy weight+micro hard disk have a bad sector & dmaged..nokia old lair..if you have samsung and nokia lend samsung truthfully
Does anyone know if this handset records videos? I know you can playback videos, but can't find any confirmation anywhere that you can record videos via the handsets camera...
Now If It Had Touchscreen And The Android Platform Installed, It Wouldve Been Perfect.
