*nokia n80 >> n80i
*nokia n95 >> n95 8GB
GUYS, Do u tink dat...
NOKIA n96 >> n96(improve version)?????
poor battery quality and NOKIA I suggest you built a SHOp for your batteries that will last long!!! period
oh i almost forgot....
the convenience of typing or texting using a normal keypad or a qwerty keyboard depends on the user.no need for further explanation.
HTC S710 however managed to give its user a choice of using qwerty or a normal keypad in one phone. if only this mechanism was applied on n96 i presume there will be more n96 potential buyers and a less population of unsatisfied consumers.
Oh and not to get fully into the qwerty debate with you all, because this is my own isolated experience, but I really type much faster on my n95 than I can on my samsung i600 (which is a normal qwerty setup). Qwerty becomes especially difficult to use during single-hand operation. I totally recognize the benefits for some, but personally, I'm much faster on a normal keypad with t9
anyone know if the slider is significantly different from the n95-1, 2, or 3? I currently have an n95-3 and I always think the slide could be improved upon. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
those few applications that runs on VGA resolution will make the difference.that alone, is "reasonable" enough.
how could you say or limit the purposes of N96? you mentioned its capabilities so why not maximize its capabilities with the help of qwerty? besides its a plus.
i will want n96 with or w/o qwerty if its for free. ^_^
THIS IS ONE AMAZING PHONE.
I cant wait to get it, iv held off for ages on getting the Nokia N95 thinking something better is around the corner.
Now they have done = Tv,+ n95 upgraded WAW Great, my ideal phone,
but Im guessing Freeview would also be an amazing idea on a phone like that then?
anyone else agree or would that be pushing it?
oh my gosh!what kind phone is that?is the best phone that i ever saw in my hole life.i have my nokia N95 but that is a (REVENGE)i wish i could have that tresure!very nice and complete!thx nokia...
I'm not saying that a 2.8 inch display is small. And I wasn't saying that a VGA res on such a screen and on such a device would be useless. But be reasonable. Most applications run on QVGA, including games.
And about the QWERTY keyboard, you said yourself that this phone is not bad without it. But this keyboard is needed for intensive typing (Office, email, messages), which is not N96's purpose (although it is capable). And who needs what? An N96 with QWERTY or a desktop keyboard connected to it ? :)) I guess neither of them.
Don't let my "regressive thinking" stand in the way of your "progress". It will come anyway. But I really want to see your N96 with QWERTY cover your whole face when you make a call.
unfortunately your thinking is regressive. Remember that the N96 has the ability to view AND edit office documents. Therefore typing with a QWERTY would be very useful; or are you telling us that Nokia put this feature in as a gimmick? There have been at least 25 N series phones. What is wrong with one of them having a QWERTY? As for the screen of course VGA is quintessential in a modern device. It shows four times the detail of QVGA therefore graphs, tables, charts and images will be much sharper. Do not be an enemy of progress with your regressive ideas.
so you're saying 2.8 is not big enough? i dont think so.
n96 with a qwerty is bad? guess you'll say no.though i get the idea that this is not a business phone. anyways,nowadays its not only professionals who desires for qwerty.qwerty is not only for professionals. n96 would be "more striking" with the qwerty but im not saying that is bad w/o it.
hope i see you outside your house with you stupid "desktop keyboard"
connected to your own n96(once you have it).how can you give a piece of an advice if you can hardly apply it to yourself?
" if you want an N96 with QWERTY, then take your desktop keyboard and connect your phone to it" ????
Q:who would want that????
it is stylish and its performance should be brilliant.....................it is a mobile with high price.........so dont buy this........
plz plz plz release it as soon as possible in pakistan.i will be waiting unconciously.thank you
In my childish opinion, I was saying that, IF the screen is big enough, a higher resolution is welcome. And you understand what that means.
And about the QWERTY keyboard, I meant that adding it on a device like N96 is needed IF the phone is dedicated to business environments (lots of typing etc.). Besides, this keyboard would make it a brick compared to its current size, and again, the same old story about the size of the device, blah, blah...
Congrats to Nokia for keeping the size of N96 reasonable, compared to is breathtaking features.
If you really want a VGA+ resolution on a 3+ inch device and a QWERTY keyboard, go for a UMPC or a PocketPC, or any other similar solution. This device is made for something else.
To Steve J.
About the high resolution screen... What do you want, to watch movies with a magnifying glass?:)) Cause you can't distinguish pixels on a 2.8 inch. How many phones have you seen with a VGA resolution and with a screen smaller than 3 inch?? For the multimedia purpose, the important thing is the SIZE of the screen, not the resolution (unless the screen is bog enough), that is, at least, in my humble opinion.
And now, to everyone obsessed with the QWERTY keyboard.
People, if you really want such a keyboard, buy an UMPC or a PocketPC that supports it. But if you want an N96 with QWERTY, then take your desktop keyboard and connect your phone to it, that would make you happy. Oh brother...
Like Ying said, "it's just amazing how people are never satisfied".
No lens cover again? I thought Nokia woulda learned already from N95 8GB. It does look nice. However there are two things that concerns me:
1. No lens cover for a very expensive phone
2. Batterylife. Is this going to be like the N95?
3. Bulkyness - The first N95 was pretty big. We all had to get used to it. Then the 8gig version came out, and that was even bigger. And now this? I may need bigger pockets from Nokia as well...
