bcoz windows mobile is a hardware-hungry (processor, RAM, battery et al) operating system. IMHO, d windows OS (up to now) s not suitable for mobile phones but for laptops, so if u r goin to buy a winMo powered phone, better buy a great phone w/out dat OS and buy a laptop instead (UltraMobilePCs r becoming more affordable these days). jus my opinion..
N96 is a kind of attractive phone that i've never seen before. but normally Nokia always run with os symbian, why doesn't nokia try with "Window mobile"?
it says post your opinion so i will,,ok back to 950ma battery again no good nokia you no that...plus person on about touchscreen,,nokia will not launch this till they have got it working to their satisfaction..
Just cause its got 16gb thats not a reason to upgrade from n958gb or n82 neither is the dvb-h as its not available in uk plus you go back in reverse in battery power,,how long will that power the tele because out of dvb-h and usa mediaflo dvb-h is power intensive app..All nokia have done is matched the i-phone for memory but in return sacrificed battery which today is the complained about thing in portable devices? so not a good phone overall
why they didn't put touch screen on this phone.....if this phone was made with touch screen i could say that was perfect phone........but without touch scren is another s60 phone with new "thinks" and big screen.....waiting for samething new from nokia........
why they made it similar to n81? and i want to know how much it will cost? when it will be out in the market? coz dude i cant wait anymore to have it in my hand!!!!!!!!!!
well, all i cn say is that n96 is far more better and really this is the first time that i can watch my favorite tv show even away from my home. good work!!!!!!!!
The functions are good but similar to n95 with some extra,battery?why 950mAh? Oh come on,also i don't like the design
It is difficult to get my posts gazetted but let me keep trying! There has been a healthy debate on the SE X1 thread concerning the fact that although phones such as N96 and N82 camcord in VGA,30fps they are unable to display VGA res on their screens because they are QVGA. The result is that the user cannot fully enjoy device recorded videos.
Furthermore, graphs, tables and charts will not be as sharp on a QVGA screen compared to VGA or WVGA.
I respect Nokia for bringing acceptable camcording to mobile phones while other companies sat on their backsides!
It is time for Nokia to take the helm again and implement VGA res on their top large screen (ie 2.8 inch and over) models. The benefits of sharper videos, graphs, tables, charts, text and images are worth it. Nokia should not let SE steal their thunder. Afterall SE have not produced even one VGA,30fps phone before the X1. Now they want to take all the glory when it was Nokia who made it available in various devices.
Note that although the N96 has DVB-H, not everybody can enjoy it. DVB-H will not be coming to the UK until 2012.
Whereas a VGA screen can be enjoyed by all.
i want to know the price of it and i like nokia bcause it more functin and look cool i can do more thing than SE and MOTO
hi,i love to see this mobile in my hand i m waiting hardly for this when its coming just let me know pleas.I like Nokia mobile to much especially its gorgeous
want to get this phone and have seen ads for buying this phone now. Is there any way of telling if these people are for real or just a scam? Sent message to GSM with no response. Can any of you give me some advice on this?
id like somebody to name one noticeable difference between the sony erricson phones produced 5 years ago and the ones produced today.
they are exactly the same and do just as much!
the top of the range nokias compared to the top of the range SE's is just no competition!
sony erricsons have no features!
and lol at the phone blowing up story, nokia sell millions of phones over dinner and nobody ever has a problem with them
*n95 owner and very very happy*
The Ericksson I know was fired as coach. So how can SE be better than Nokia? No offence though, it's good to deam people! Nokia though is about reality. congrats Nokia good Job.
My apologies people. 3.2 inches touch sreen is way cool. thanks Nokia. I will get one soon
