N96 is a phone to die for. it looks elegant, classy and comes with great features.
whatever the cost, its worth it.
Definitely Nokia should improve the quality of music player. No n series phones equals sound to series 40 phones other than N91. That too paying so much money on N95,N81 the quality and volume of the player when heard through headset is not at all satisfactory.
For all those that still debate on "xenon vs. dual LED"
See Ying's post on page 9.
I think it's off the chains, I've had an N series before and I'll never go back. Well done Nokia, just when I thought you couldn't do better you've outdone yourselves again. I can't wait to get myself one.
Oh Mah Gahhh!
Its like an N81, but BETTER! The N81 is my baby, it is the light of my life and now they are making a better one!!! Its like a dream come true, like if you have an ugly baby and want to trade it in for a cute one.
Go Team N Series!!!
Anyone know how much this will be outright?
To ali iftikhar
nokia already upgraded the feature pack of this phone From fp 1 to fp 2
what is the difference between this and n81? how lame can nokia get? atleast upgrade the features and add more to it. Monopolize on what the others sont have or cant think of.
@ person below
Prob'ly not gonna happen dude. If it does, then the phone's gonna be a rush job, filled with bugs. Oh, wait a minute - I'm sure that already happened with the original N95...
when is the exact release be announced......i need this phone to come out before the end of june!!!!!
To all those interested in "predictions on the future handsets"
Nokia will release touchscreen based phones, with an OS especially optimized for this (S60 Touch), probably towards the end of the year or the beginning of 2009. There is good chance that this will be one of the main aims in what concerns Nokia participation at MWC 2009.
Flash memory of 32 GB. Debatable. Some may still fell that 16 GB (which will become a standard sometime) aren't enough. Personally, I doubt about the release of a 32 GB phone soon.
VGA screens. This subject has already been discussed on this forum. We all know the benefits of VGA res. Probably Nokia will throw VGA into their handsets, but it may take some time.
Samsung has already produced a "small enough" 8 megapixel sensor to be introduced in mobile phones. An 8 megapixel phone available this year would not be a something of a surprise, and even less at MWC 2009.
And forget about those N97, N98, N99, N100 and whatever Photoshop crap may be posted on the Internet.
“Nokia N96 to get a xenon flash?” i've just get this info from intomobile com.
I'd love to know where you're getting your information. There's no way Nokia would release info on the N96's successor before the N96 is even released. It's simply not good business sense. So unless you have a buddy that works in Nokia's R&D department, my guess is that you're full of something. And I ain't talking about useful information here...
@SPK: what are you doing posting at a nokia phone?
i better carry 10 batteries at me and have symbian than to have windows mobile.
Keys vary from many models, and i can say n70, n73, n82 are phones with very good keys
Nokia's next big announcement for next flagship is jan 2009 at the GSM world mobile congress- expectVGA resoultions touchscreens , 7-8 megapixel cameras and 32gb storage flash!!!
I guess we have to satisfy our flagship hunger with this Nokia for 08.
NOKIA N95, N95-8GB, N82 and N96 are all da same apart from desigen and memory cant fight dis fact
How many times you guys talk about batteries and Xenon Flash?
Can't you just find something newer to say?
Or you guys have some "Battery/Xenon/Touch " timer in your head? Ring-on every 40 hours?
