Finally I got mine :-) The camera is absolutely stunning, althou the optical zoom is not perfect :-( The video recording is just as good. I will never carry my old sony handycam with me again (is just over 1 pound heavy ! ! !) After resampling the pictures to 5mp I can't see any difference to a 5mp dedicated camera ! Absolutely NONE :-)
Nokia will have to do something special to beat this one. As for the rest,they might just get out of the bussines. (LG, SE, ALCATEL, MOTOROLA and all the other insignificant manufacturers)

Guyz! For those of us who are not very technical, in the spec page GPRS and EDGE come in different classes, some come in 10, some in 12 and some in 32. What is the difference and whats better???

They don't do it sim-free yet (or at least thats... moreSo it was u I was in the Q behind 4 ages!!!
Seriously, I've looked at it in CWH and it seems very dull to me.
I did pre-order it with mobiles.co.uk and at last got an e-mail Fri pm saying it's going to their dispatch team!
I've lost interest in it, still won't get it until Tues pm, (and they pride themselves on next day!!)
Think I'll send it back and wait for both the LG and the 96.
i have 2 say this phone produces the best photos i have seen on a mobile phone but still not perfect it still does not like objects ie people moving when in 8 meg mode as 4 the flash people saying not good enough all my family says its too bright when u take there photo i have 2 say in my opinion this phone as a whole is mush better than the n95 & yes i owned a n95 since 2nd of april 2007 who knows if its better than the n96 i think it will be comparing specs but time will tell

They don't do it sim-free yet (or at least thats what I was told) and they put up the prices, it was 29.99 + orange £30 for 18mths. now its over 100 and they refuse to give a good deal.
The phone is dead good though, I had a few hours play with it today in cpw
