A poorly executed phone, sliding mechanism like N95 will get worn out in minutes if not seconds. Speaking from personal experience, the slider mechanism of E65 platform (on 2 stainless steel circular rails) is superb and smooth as compared with N96's plastic.
atleast a VGA screen would have been nice... not to mention touch screen could have been even better.
FM Transmitter to transmit music over local area would make it the ultimate killer phone (especially considering the iPhone)
oh... where is the xenon flash? and what about the battery... just 900 mAH!...
good on features, poor execution. yet still....
Performance 3 (poor battery life)
Nokia N96 will available on May 7th:
Nokia don´t like camera, because don´t improve camera with optical zoom and xenom flash. It´s very bad because this cel is almost perfect (wifi-tv-fm-gps). No have other cell completly.
"it's N81 in the shell of an N95 8G."
erm..... its supp0sd ta b d 0THER way ar0und, h0mes!!!
either way, 'tis all g00d..... the rest 0f yer p0st wuz "sp0t 0n", br0!!!
It's N81 in the shell of an N95 8G. Doesn't have the same impact as when N95 was first announced. The reason? It's the same old ****. Who needs TV on their phones when it is more convenient to watch on a normal TV? I don't know if this is a gaming machine or what. It does not appeal to me at all. I'd rather buy a PSP, a Nokia 1200, a Canon Ixus 75 with 7.1 megapixels. I don't need a phone which tries to squeeze in all the great features in one device because the result does not provide utmost performance to the device and satisfaction to consumers.
its an amazing fone.i have both a n95 and the 8gb version.but the 16gb plus external memory unlike the n95 8gb is appealing.the design inspired from the n81.bring it on nokia.
P.S. i would have liked atouchscreen interface
I just created a blog dedicated to Nokia N96.
I can't wait this great phone. It must be the next Nokia's masterpiece.
any advice for my blog?
This phone is fully packed of functions. It can do anything but how long does the battery last?? 1 hour.
i had this phone for a gift,when i just started to play with it,it was cool at first,but by times,it started to show its true colour,the screen intermittently on and off,we got it from an authorised dealer,it was not expected to be like that....guys try it for yourself,i gave mine as a gift after a few days later....
Hi guys so far N96 will be next ultimate phone from Nokia, everybody is excited to its release at the 3rd quarter of this year but I have only one question, when will be the N98 will be release? N98 will kill all the competation.
Q3 = 3rd Quater of the yr, therefore its September~
But that only applies to UK
Ha ha dis phone wats point of having all features wen it gona last long lol it wont even last a day da battery lol..
Nokia copied SE da Xeon Flash on da N82 wont be suprised if dey ditch symbian lol n put Windows Mobile 6. Nokia gona copy SE sooner or later...
Standard battery, Li-Ion 950 mAh ? not enough at all! well, all mobile phones are supposed to be charged every 2 days, but this will last less than 24 hours with normal usage...:(
