No manufacturer takes a phone out of the production line if it's still able to generate profit! The n96 was takes out of production mainly because of it's low selles rates! What part don't you understand? Nokia lost the smartphone segment in the n96,n97 period because n96 was not considered a worthy succesor of n95! The only improvement over the n95 was the extended memory storage and your "cherished" dvb-tunner! It's clear that your knoledge about phones is very limited since you don't know these facts!

Samsung Galaxy S is a nice phone but comparing a touch screen to a non-touch screen Nokia N96 is absurd.
I will just list some facts:
1. Nokia N96 is popular than Samsung Galaxy S
2. Nokia N96 price history was dropping at a slower pace than Samsung Galaxy S
3. Nokia N96( 2 years old) is in the same price group of Samsung Galaxy S(half a year old)
4. Nokia N96 has excellent call quality and 3d stereo sound than Samsung Galaxy S
5. Nokia N96 has inbuilt video and sound chip that converts video and sound straight away but Samsung Galaxy S lack this hardware.
Nokia N96 will always be remembered
you guys talk about phones and end up buying new ones, can get no satisfaction, you have a point, but its pointless
taiwo, 29 Nov 2010i just dont know reason the phone is very scarce in i've gone to various nokia outlets in nige... moreYou're having problemes finding one because it's production has been stopped and probably the Nokia shops in your country have finished their stock and they didn't receive a new one. Try buying it online,there are sites who still sell it.
James Mckeown, 30 Nov 2010Sun ignorance has made you defianted. I said name just one phone that has dvb feature and you ... moreYour lack of knoledge and limited understanding has made you unable to understand a simple thing! It doesn't matter in what way,it matters that there are plenty of phones frow whitch you can whatc Tv! For you information the n96 wasn't a glorious chapter in Nokia history that why it got discontinued after a year and a few months while succes phones like the n95,n73 were produces for a few years! Few costumers worldwide being interested in that feature! It's clear that your knoledge in mobile phones is limited and superficial since you only had a couple of middle end phones,except the sirocco! Supernova...9500 communicator...those are just junk phones! I used only high-end phones and I have now the best phone in the world, Galaxy S!!! Next time think before posting useless comments!
Never regretted using Nokia N96, is like supporting the best football club in the world Barcelona who scored Real Madrid 5 - 0 and had ball possession of 83% against 17%. Jose Mourinho self proclaimed 'special one' had the greatest defeat in his coaching career from his formal player Pep Guardiola.What a talented football team that has created the greatest footballer in the world Diego Maradona and most best footballers. Hope it creates the greatest coach.
Sun ignorance has made you defianted. I said name just one phone that has dvb feature and you said clone chinese phone. Something clone is fake and is not technology and point of correction chinese clone phone transmit analogue tv channels whilst dvb transmit digital tv channels. Nokia is pioneer of camera phone, bluetooth, gps, large storage memory phone, dvb feature etc. Nokia used dvb feature in 2004 on 7710 touchscreen. Learn technology well because Nokia is among the three largest patent owners with Intel and Qualcomm
i just dont know reason the phone is very scarce in i've gone to various nokia outlets in nigeria they normally told me is not available and i feel like having the phone already,it is the best phone i have lay my hands on,got one before it was stolen
James Mckeown, 28 Nov 2010Sun name the china phones that have dvb turner. I have toshiba 42 inch regza tv and samsung 32... moreSince you obviously don't know the chinese are very resourcefull people. Just Google it and you will find an infinity of cloned phones especially from Nokia and Apple who have a integrated tunner that allows watching TV! I have a Galaxy S and n96 can't compare with it neigher in terms of display,speed,user interface,number of apps etc. Still I haven't sold my n96 bec I still like it. As for the phones...I had or still have n73,n95,n96 n97 mini,i900 omnia,F480 tocco,lg prada, sirocco,8600 luna,8800 sapphire arte and the the jewel Galaxy S. I know more about technology since i had better phones then you! So next time before posting about things you think are unique try to do a little research!
Sun name the china phones that have dvb turner. I have toshiba 42 inch regza tv and samsung 32 inch led tv so respect people you don't know. I have used many phones like Nokia 7610, 7610 Supernova, 9500 Communicator, N75, 8800, 8800 Sirocco, 5800, Palm Pre and Nokia N96 etc and i don't thing you have knowledge in technology.
Nokia N96 is King of phones because no phone have all it's features even the current Nokia N8.

You keep praising the damn dvb tunner like it was something unique! I told you even chinese phones are equipped with that feature! You never help people by answering their questions,all you do is praise the dvb -tunner like it was something from another planet!
On 29th November, 2010 i will watch El clásico match between Barcelona versus Real Madrid on my Nokia N96 live and i hope Barcelona win.
