YING! YES YOU YING! FINALLY AN INTELLIGENT PERSON EXPLAINED EVERYTHING! I TOTALLY AGRRE WITH YOU!
Most people really don't know what they are talking about!
Most people are inconsiderate of a company's market strategy... consumers always want what they wanted and never consider the business of Nokia...
Some consumers are very UNREALISTIC AND ILOGICAL on the upgrades they wanted in a phone! of course a phone could not upgrade that fast... it needs to have transition... and this n96 is part of the transition... NOKIA will be bankrupt if they increment their features too much in a short span of time! it must take little by little...
NOKIA is original and logical in their decisions! it must be a balance of consumer and manufacturer! not only Consumers will be favored! that's all
just hate all of you people saying this phone is crap...must have xenon flash... blah blah blah...
Could u ever name a phone that has all this features in this compact size? Duh! u couldn't even name one!
DVBH + 16GB + HSDPA + VGA 30 FPS CAMCORDER ETC... NO phone matches all these FEATURES!
WAKE UP! WAKE UP! U DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT U ARE SAYING...
And for people who says this phone was not a worthy upgrade over n95 8gb - CLEARLY u dont know how to COMPUTE!
n95 8GB to N96 have MORE INCREMENTS or CHANGES than n95 to n95 8GB! see my comparison...
n95 ---> n95 8GB (changes)
8GB internal memory,
128 mb RAM
And the PAGING thing(forgot the exact term)
memory card slot and lens cover was even REMOVED!-what a pity! the Menu layout was changed too
n95 8GB ---> n96 (changes)
16GB internal memory
DUAL LED FLASH
PORTRAIT AND LANDSCAPE MODE GAMING PLUS DEDICATED CONTROLS (the n95 8gb has portrait only and dont have the comfortable gaming experience)
MEDIA KEYS in PORTRAIT MODE! (again this adds more ease while u are using the phone for music playing! opening the slider several times just to change track is really ANNOYING!)
3.5 MM JACK was moved at the top for easy access and handling while the phone is in the pocket
KICKSTAND (i know this is maybe a small thing but THIS REALLY MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE COMFORTABILITY IN WATCHING VIDEOS!)
Other changes include decrease in THICKNESS, and increase in height! - personally i would want a phone that is thinner but taller than a phone which is thicker and shorter - why? because it's much easier to hold in the hand!
to people who says "why is there no xenon fflash"- hig current dual led flash is actually better than xenon... need explanation? http://www.mobi lehandsetdesign...N2JVN?pgno=1
And to all people who says NOKIA SUCKS!... u are simply HYPOCRITES! NOKIA has the largest market share! they hold about 40+ percent of the entire market! EVEN IF YOU COMBINE THE SHARES OF SAMSUNG, MOTOROLLA, AND SONYERICSSON THEY WOULD NOT EVEN BEAT NOKIA! THAT'S REALLY PATHETIC! THREE MANUFACTURERS(actually four because sony and ericsson merged) could not even beat NOKIA! I guess that would explain everything!
NOKIA is simply the BEST and LEADING cellphone manufacturer!
Good to see that Nokia hasn't given in to the flush touch screen keys for call/hang up etc.
Those things are annoying as hell.
Stick to the buttons please, thanks.
Why does everyone love the Nokia N Series phones? They are all useless with major recurring problems. I work for Vodafone and KNOW this. This phone will be no different.
is there any pocket pc that support tally acconting programe i m in africa n it is not easy to carry laptop so i m loooking pocket pc that support tally so im can take my accounts with me thanks and is there any laptop smallest size that can fit in my pocket thanx
wow!, but can anyone tell me anything about the N98??
Here some reason why to buy the N96
Be waiting for the Nokia n96 triple xxx with symbian touch ui.
That would be the last phone you would ever buy.
That's why it will never be released.
se G900 looks more promising.
950 mAh battery for this phone? Nokia must be joking! I wonder it has solor power cell and the phone is pretty shine. Anyway, you can charge and talk. ha ha.
A power house from Nokia. Obviously am advanced version of N95. Hope the UI experience is still faster & better. An all in one machine.
i am lim the nokia supporter but i wan to know that n96 how much on it price and the camera nice than n82 mah?
2 things nokia should have added is xenon flash instead of led, wtf if its dual, and quickoffice editiong version
omg ..this phone is tha shizz
best phone, does anybody know how much it is?
hi! im just curious about this: DVB-H TV broadcast receiver. does it mean that we could watch real-time tv with this like the n77 phone? or its just an upgrade of their tv out? also, is it just flash? not xenon flash like in their n82 phones? geez nokia makes a lot of phone units but not all are packed with great features.. why are they doing this? is this their marketing strategy? i hope they could create a phone that has all the n series great fetures.. even it if would cost me a thousand bucks for it. lol.
