SE Xperia X1 will beat all N-Series hands down.
1. Its smaller compared to most of N series.
2. Nokia is yet to release an N series with touchscreen.
3. Nokia's Symbian is a memory and battery hogger. I hav seen people frustrated with their N series mobiles, though they buy it only to show off.
4. The keys are relatively bigger, well spaced and stylish. Keys in N series are crap.
5. None of the N series are stylish enuf to compete against a SE phone.
6. The animations in X1 are far superior to the staid ones in N Series.
SE needs to maintain a high-end image for X1 by havin a high price. Else, all tom-dick-harry will buy it like N series, which hav becom phones for those who dunno how to use a multimedia phone.
It seems Nokia has run out of designs! And of features and battery too!
The N series models hav becom the mass market mobiles though most don know wat to do with it except to take a few pictures and send sms!
No fresh designs, same old models with just a slightly better features tat r useless without a gud long-lasting battery. No matter how many N series r released, only n70 and n73 sell well. Its time Nokia comes out of darkness and embraces touchscreen and WM OS. A gud battery and RAM too...
i think that it is the best mobile features
but i need to know what is the price of it
they placed a BL-5F(950mha)battery, which is the same one as the one in n95. Isn't the BL-6F(1200mha) battery in n95 8GB better. anyone knows what have made them change their mind of not using the BL-6F or even those better ones?
As previously stated by me, you cant expect Nokia or indeed any phone manufacturer to make the exact phone each individual customer wants. E series is for business and they will probably always produce a model every now and then with a QWERTY keyboard but the N range is for MULTIMEDIA!! Movies, web browsing, music, games etc not so you can brag about how your phone has everything including oooooooh a qwerty keyboard -_- also ,like i said before, devices can be more energy efficient according to the processor and other features. There are cars with fuel tanks half the size of others that can go twice as far so it's really not an argument, except from those who are too ignorant to check the facts. I'm sure that if it were to have a qwerty, it would actually be less appealing and probably sell 80% less than a standard numeric pad. IRDA is stone age now, bluetooth is better
Really n96 nokia no.1 phone with all features.n96 with symbian os9.3 version and it plays WMV files, tv broadcaster.i have used n93 at time. Its web is imaging.but i want to buy n96.its price is nearabout 35000.
I guess we already grasped what each of us was trying to convey but it just doesnt meet.no hard feeling though.
Nokia doesn't copied rom samsung, SamsuNg copied their design from n95 which is similar to N96.

I guess it's just that you and me have different opinions. That is, about the fact that Steve J's dream phone is or isn't "attainable". Or, more broadly saying, about the fact that people keep dreaming of all kinds of things (because they are unsatisfied of what they can gain access to), and just dreaming. And these dreams of theirs are or are not achievable.
Once again, that dream phone of Steve J's is achievable to some extent, but Nokia just don't do things just because they can. That's all I'm saying.
The Nokia N96 will be the best for me and I request to nokia please launch this product early...........
my "asus"eepc4g whit 16gb sdhc card class 6,2gb ram "kingston for 508$/including this extras/-7"display whit windows xp rocks.battery is 5200mah -3ahrs non stop in internet true wifi/.it's posible to by 7200mah,but 508$ is inough.no more usless mobile devieses for 1000$ and more.now i have skype,tv online and can put gps,bluetooth,dvb tv recievers and everething true 3 usb ports.at end is 900gr only-like old vhs cassete,but real pc whit 900mhz/700real/intel whit windows xp.i keep my old n73 nokia in pocket for phone funcktions,but for internet sorry "asus" 7".
the point is actually not me or you having a misinterpretation of what Steve J said. its you whose having a dilemma with my statements or me regarding yours, but im sure i have analyze your statements fairly and clearly as well i have done with Steve J.(you can also correct me if im mistaken)
i believe that you're thinking it is impossible to happen(Steve Js' dream phone) not to favor anyone in this forum but i also think its "attainable".im sorry but you remind me of the russians saying that americans cant land on the moon. should i call you The_Nootz or The_Regressive? LOL!!!!
"That is why you'll never (let's say a 1 in a million chance) see an Nseries device with QWERTY"
To "...." (PDPg)
I think you misunderstood. Steve J, correct me if I'm wrong or if I'm the one who has misunderstood. What Steve J wants is an Nseries device small enough (relative, which, as I see it, should be in the worst case the same size as N95) with all in it: QWERTY (maybe even adding a separate numeric keypad like that HTC S730), 5(+) mpx camera, state-of-the-art everything (music, games, screen - VGA res and larger, Internet connection, processing power + 3D, and last but not least, battery). Or maybe a HTC S730 with N96 features. It just doesn't work like that. Imagine a device, even this one, like Steve J dreams. It's just not realistic.
And Nokia is not Alienware, to throw anything the customer wants in the phone at his wish. That is why you'll never (let's say a 1 in a million chance) see an Nseries device with QWERTY, and that is because you'll see it elsewhere. Maybe they'll release a Communicator like E90 but with 5 mpx camera, who knows. Or HTC will release a TyTN III with 5 mpx camera. Of course, everything to suit Steve J's pocket (in size).
said before ill say it again
guys buy two batterys
by the way how bout instead of slider phones we make switchblades push a button it slides up or down but not on flips the spring motion would knock it out of your hand
still i think it would work
it iz the best cell ever!
it is a complete mobile with all the latest functions!
It seems someone have not see the review yet...
In the multi-media use, N96 can play longer than N95-8Gb.
You just want to damn this phone because you have no money to buy and want to find some reason to keep your eyes away from it.
I'll forgive you.
Interesting model with 16GB internal memory and 5mp camera BUT battery should be a mega disaster. (see N95 and then the N95 8GB with its 1200mAh...)
Mmm...The_Nootz, an interesting name! You have made some valid points and I feel that you reflect the mindset of contemporary Nokia policy. I guess I am a bit of a rebel! But you know multimedia is not just about pictures and images. What about text? Magazines and newspapers are all part of multimedia. You know and I know that for serious work T9 is inadequate. You wouldn't use it as your text input on a computer would you??
May I suggest that Nokia put it to the test. Make a variation of the N96. Call it, for instance, the N96Q. The "Q" would denote the presence of a QWERTY. Make it a two way slider but with a difference. If it slides in portrait orientation T9 keys are revealed. If it slides in landscape, a full QWERTY is seen. Nokia are brilliant at screen rotation and orientation. Look what they did with the 6260 and the N93. The N96Q would not be a problem to manufacture. A variation on this theme would be HTC S730 design. There are so many possibilities. Why rigidly stick to the N95 version of dual slide??
Others may ask well why not go for an E-series. The answer is that the E-series compromises top of the range N features and is too bulky. Hence the necessity of the N96Q. Nokia shouldn't knock it until they've tried it!!
