When I look at the N96 I no longer see a phone. All I see is a mini-computer. How would you feel if you sat down at a desktop computer and were faced with T9 keys instead of the usual QWERTY? You would raise the alarm! So I cannot understand why a device that can view, edit and create word docs as well as e-mail is devoid of a QWERTY. HTC S730 is a phone with T9 and a QWERTY in a compact design. I wish N96 had this structure. If Nokia are imprisoned in their self imposed rigid N and E series then they should produce a hybrid series: call it NE!!!
The NOKIA Company should apply the following upgrades to their new NSERIES N96 model before its commercial launch:
1=> CPU Speed increased to above 550 MHz; RAM Size increased to 192MB; Builtin Program Storage Flash Memory increased to 2048MB; Builtin Mass Storage Flash Memory increased to 32GB; 8GB microSDHC Card provided
2=> TouchScreen with Full Stylus Input; OnScreen Full QWERTY Keyboard [Input via Stylus]; Highly Accurate and Fast Handwriting Recognition; High Quality Stylus provided
3=> Latest Professional Version of QuickOffice preinstalled [Document Creation and Editing allowed; Full Support for Microsoft Office 2007 Document Format; Scientific Programmable Calculator Application included]
4=> Dual Xenon Flash, 3x Optical Zoom, Image Stabilizer, Business Card Scanner and Lens Cover on the Five MegaPixels Camera
5=> Battery Power Rating increased to above 1500 mAh
6=> Heavy Improvement in the Sound Quality, Noise-Cancellation and Ergonomics of the provided Headset

People i think tnat this is the most beautiful phone i ever seen.I would like to know which is ths price and when will start sailling.I amfrom macedonia good bye
im waiting for this phone, there is no phone else in the market who has these features: 5mp camera, Gps, BVB-H tv, wlan and tv out ang gaminb, well whats more?! touch screen? i'll tell u something, i switched from nokia 6630 to Tytn2, which is a good phone.. but i miss a practical phone, i miss frendly rich featured Nokia phones..
Touch screens aren't even that great. I own an iPhone and compared to this phone, its a piece of $600 (when i bought it) crap. touch screen is the last thing i look for. i look for things like MMS and the 5 MP camera, and GPS. The iPhone has NONE of this features that should have come standard anyway. This phone is a really great looking and very beefed up phone. if it was out now, I'd would buy one right now, regardless of price. I really don't feel like waiting until Q3 of this year. COME ON NOKIA, PUT IT OUT ALREADY!!!
nice job nokia, nokia just got best over the mobile companies, can anyone tell me t hat is this mobile available in asia or not, and how much will be the price of this cute suite,
n95 2,6 inches display 950 mah battery.(very short life)..
n95 8gb 2,8 inches display 1200 mah battery.
N96 + TV 2,8 inches display 950 mah battery.
Is it reasonable battery for N96?
Wish it comes with touchscreen display capabilities..
then it's perfect..
will Nokia ever comes out with a high end touchscreen phone?
Its Flash can be used while recording video therefore it has LED flash instead of Xenon.
I'm shocked yaar its a miracle made by Nokia. I thanks Nokia to giving us that type of phone which can solve each and every problems of us once again thank you Nokia Hats Of to You.
Im a SE fanatic but this one is different, this is the ULTIMATE phone, the looks is stylish the features is great. I must have this phone. But im still hoping SE can make better phones like a phone with 5MP Cybershot, Walkman, WiFi, mass storage, GPS, a TV reciever and a Symbian or it would be better if it has Windows MS as an OS.
How is there a vote of 8.1 for performance, when this phone has not been released yet?
This is a nice phone, nokia just keeps getting better.other brands dont really have a phone in its league do they...
