well yea, still no touchscreen, looks like nokia fans still must pray as they prayed for the xenon flas in N82 as sonyericsson phones, now we'll have to wait for any "N97" future model to come out with touchscreen for better NETbrowsing
I like old nok, but the battery is appalling for a multimedia device! yes the features seem great but 950mah is just no good! we must complain because whats the point in bringing out a new phone if it comes with so many compromises? i mean is there a true benefit to n96 over n95-8gb? do we see anything but a further 8gb inside? is THAT really needed? does it justify the larger casing? whats the point if you cant take full advantage because of a lowsey battery? This phone is pointless. Personally i'd prefer the n81-8gb or the n96-8gb, not a pinch of each and a battery that you find in most dumb-phones of today. This is a blatant marketing scheme that doesn't merit the trading in of any previous n-series device, or even cheap 90euro phone bought in this year, and you know why? 4 months down the line you will see a repetition of how the n95 was marketed....Behold ...the n96-2 a 32gb variant with fixed battery problem and probably a navi-wheel.. i hate to be blunt but it seems highly likely. you would be very sour to see this happen if you bought this piece of n81/95 concoction... Worse yet it is only due for 2008 Q3.
eeeeek! check 0ut the battery life!!!
As much as I love Nokia I'll have to go with Sony-Ericsson because of the battery life and touch screen.
I can't believe the poor battery life, this is ridiculous, I have to go everywhere with a charger in my pocket
For person who want something new:
It is something new ---->DVB-H TV broadcast receiver !
Wow, amazing. So they take the style of the N81 and apply it to the N95 8G and double the memory. Very lame output for the number one cell phone company in the world. how long before we start seeing something truly new from these guys. Why in the world would anyone with an N95 upgrade to an N96? Frankly i'm bored of nokia. I dont care how powerful the phone may be. I want something new!
Ahem, 7 MPx camera phone anyone? I know I haven't seen any - except in one leaked Nokia project.. but that's about it..
nice cell bad i thik that is better with touchcrem is more satisfactory
after 17 months they should have evolved to a better camera..27 april 2005 - 2 megapixel, december 2005 - 3,15 megapixel, 26 september 2006 (my birtday) - 5 megapixel
but..they stayed there,there was no february 2008 - 6,75 megapixel luw u all, live in peace
Oh please this is such a boring phone i've had my nokia n95 for a year come April, So after the n95's release over the past year they have come up with this what a load of shite...
Lets hope that those n98 rumors are true as no way i'm i upgrading to the n96, i'd rather have a sony and then nokias lost a customer...
Come on Nokia your boring us now!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what is this?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and the world Changed!!!!!!
but i prefer to buy HTC Shift.
Why is it with Nokia you have to choose between a chunky size or poor battery life? Everything else about their phones is phenomenal.
Nokia ran out of ideas so they came up with N81 design for their N96... How depressing!!! Ugly design for the N-series!!! No originality!!! So disappointing!
well nokia is having serious problem with they're design. Some of them are bricky (n95, n81, n96) and some of them have terrible keypad (n81, n78, 6220)
"Are you going mad, 4 slots"
Well either that or a good 64gb internal memory.
Why do you think the ipod classic has 160gb?
To be honest, you would never need that sort of storage, although in a few years time, mobile phones are going to be mobile computers.
Were probably going to be using Office and Adobe products on our mobile phones.
There will be loads of software out there for mobile phones, just like there is for computers today.
Check out how much phones have improved from 2005 to 2007 and see how they will further improve by 2009!
i own a touchscreen phone. They're overrated.
You have shitty games to play(a.k.a none) and the screen gets all messed unless you keep screen protector on...which makes touchscreen difficult.
I liked it at first...but now...I'm tired of the iphone.. now if the iphone had a touchscreen and a directional pad/home pad. and then 2 buttons at the top like ngage
It would be the ultimate multimedia phone.
i guess upping the anti on the camera and bluetooth would be nice too lol
