Response to PDPg.
The overall concept of the tactical feedback is to provide the user with an unique experience. More specifically, when you press a key on the screen, it clicks under your finger with exactly the same sort of fingertip feedback as if you had pressed a conventional keyboard key.
Regards to it being "barely needed", that's an overstatement. Personally, tactile feedback is equivalent to devices' voice speech/recognition function in my opinion. I'll elaborate on that if needed (I'm sure I will be).
I'm pretty sure sufficient battery sources will not be an issue, especially with technological advances like this...
ever wonder why nokia cancelled its production?
that "physical pulse "you were saying
is barely needed because you're eyes are open when you use the phone right?
so that means with your eyes alone you can recognize if the device is responding properly.
that "physical pulse " will surely drain its battery much faster.
"some seriously research." seriously research???? lol
After reviewing many recent posts regarding Nokia's touchscreen, I can clearly say you all need to do some seriously research.
First of all, Nokia HAS BEEN introduced a mobile touchscreen handset. Year 2004 if I'm not mistaken.
How about you all google the Nokia 7700. This phone incorporated many features which you all are so amazingly impressed with in upcoming devices.
Unlike current and past touchscreen devices, Nokia confirmed the S60 touch user interface will support tactile feedback, which means that there is a physical pulse and feedback when the user taps on the screen. This will provide a better awareness of the device's response improving the user experience.
i'm a nokia fan as well as sony ericsson. i have used almost all nokia models. quite disappointing this time that nokia has still not introduced touch screen (atleast for this model). that is why nokia is loosing its market in few countries due to the absence of a touch screen. nokia please wake up???. to use gps touch screen is very convenient
good phone and this phone will be competitive at the market places!!! well done Nokia N-Series
i guess you should choose s500 for its feminity,simplicty and nice design.
its pretty awkward to see a woman using this bulky phone with a loser battery. so keep your poise and choose the sweet s500.
not bad, but i hope this cable flex / ribbon flex can stay longer (atleast 2 years)LOL... and the slider part hope it is durable. Good luck N96
nokia should have put XENON flash for the camera of n96, & LED flash for video recording. & why did they remove again the LENS COVER? The battery is the same as N95, poor...
"why do some people like touch screen so much?"
because its much comfortable for them.nokia's losing a significant population of phone users due to lack of touchscreen.
dont compare???? c'mon! but you already compared it did you????
did you see the battery profile????
n96 is the best phone in the market.. stop comparing it with the xperia because it's a pda while this is a smartphone.. even so n96 has every feature you can imagine, while xperia has some features missing(DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, 5mb pixels, 16gb,3.5 mm audio output jack, TV out)
why do some people like touch screen so much? they are really uncomfortable to use..nokia did the right thing by placing their money on ergonomics and well designed keypad..and since ergonomics is nokia's forte, i don't think they r very keen on touchscreens, but they'll still make them because of the modern trend where competition is churning out touchscreen products like crazy
your w960 is way better than this n96 but i suggest you upgrade it with an xperia.
lol nokia wid touchscreen? looooool. just look at how buggy these nseries are. imagine nokia releasing a touchscreen device it is gona be way to buggy n next fing u knw boom dey stop making firmare upgrades like dey did wid da expensive n93 n93i.
touchscreen new to nokia. its old news to se, samsung,lg. nokia behind lol.. se X1 amaing windows mobile 6.1 pro. ull see Nokia copying se ideas n implementing Microsoft OS into there touchscreen devices soon. SE X1 is gona be a hit just imagine all dem microsoft lovers who would want there hands on Windows Mobile 6.1.
the phone looks cool...the features too are exciting....but the battery back up is poor....
Whats SE team doing ??
All i have to say is: ''U500 Platform''
There are rumours that NOKIA will release a touchscreen phone after the N96...
You'll regret it if after 4-6 months buying N96, NOKIA releases a High-End touchscreen phone...
I would like to buy this phone, but i'll stick wit ma W960i till the end of this year.
Nice to see ya here..... lol
5mpixels again (n95 5megapixels since 2006)
no touchscreen since n95(2006), n95 8go(2007)
The more features you have the more power it drains to the battery. Sometimes its better to have a separate MP3 player, a camera and mobile phone.
