wow this phone is horrible. N81 with 16gb memory and better camera? wtf? disgusting. N95 ftw!
To Steve J
Please rid yourself of this fixation of yours and that HTC of yours. If you really like that device, then go ahead and buy it. Again, that is a PocketPC, which, again, is pointless to compare with this multimedia device.
As a PocketPC, HTC S730 is designed for typing, because the aim was to carry mobile Office with you, as well as an Internet connection for email. And Windows Mobile manages these things very well. But Nokia N96 is optimized for multimedia. Battery performance optimized for longer playback time, hardware accelerated codecs (see H.264), dedicated DSP chip for audio quality, massive memory to store even DVDs, high performance camera and video recorder (best available), all of these tell us (beside Nokia themselves) that this device is made for something else. Now don't draw the wrong conclusion. Nokia N96 is still capable of managing Office and email and all other things that require typing. As a comparison, HTC S730 can (also) manage music and video players, but doesn't offer spectacular results like a dedicated multimedia device.
That is why, in my opinion, you'll never see an Nseries handset with QWERTY. If you want an Nseries device and still want to edit Office etc., get used to that T9. It seems that there are users who type pretty well with T9. On the other hand, if your aim is to get a phone that manages Office etc and still want some music/video/photos, go for a PocketPC (such as your HTC S730) or an Eseries device like E90.
If you're still unsatisfied of what the mobile phone market has to offer, all you can do is wait until something that satisfies you comes out.
very nice style.. very nice in features.. nice phone.. but i think its expensive..
I live in Iran and I have a N95 8G
please tell me is it good that I sell the N95 and buy a N96?or waiting for next products of NSeries?and who know what's the price of N96?...
Please send the answers to my mail..:)

I want this phone NOOOOOWW!!!!! in argentina
I can't wait :'(
If anybody know something please tellme
I read from a website saying that, there is also a N96i, is that true ? or i just reading rubbish...
You know, for a multimedia rich device like this phone, I am surprised to see a small capacity battery. Why the 950 mAh? Anything before 1100 mAh is totally not acceptable these days.

i want to own this phone at someday i live in egypt alex............
very very very veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy beautiful phone l hope that somday i can get one of these because ofcaurs nokia is number 1 in telephon world.thank you
i have been looking at this phoe as it look really cool and has so much.
the thing is y cant people put wot the think without some1 coming along and saying UR wrong. people put ur points a cross but dont say bad thing 2 each other.
This phone is the best phone for me, but with such a good phone its expected to be used alot regardless of the feature you wish to use, my point is the battery in my eyes would be the weak point, ah well move around with the charger just in case.
Oh yeah, and why do people keep harping on about Irda? surely people dont care about that when 90% of new releases have bluetooth, and those that dont arent worth sending large files to anyway, its like criticising it for not having a monochrome screen. I dont think people realise the full potential of some of these phones, yeah it may be roughly the same as the N95 but I'm pretty certain that the processor will be more powerful and energy efficient, its the same as PC's, different processors use different watts and therefore power i.e. battery! I can use a program on my N95 that lets me use it as a wireless webcam (3 floors up!), another that lets me browse my PC music and control it remotely, GPS software, fantastic 3D games, watch DIVX and AVI movies etc... For me, the people that are critical are the fanboys and the specification freaks.
