showdown between Sammy and Noky
this ph is slider!!! I'm extremely boring with slider phs as i use them for many years.
Here a great hands on video:
This is the right replacement for N95 rather than N96. Samsung is smart to get all the specs right and ditch the DVB-H in favor of multi-codec video playback.
I speculate the delay behind N96 is the DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, DVB-H is not really ready for prime time and I believe not many countries support it either. Singapore does with the irritating MobileTV on her buses, noisy but am sure if its works with DVB-H or not.
If N96 comes without the DVB-H TV broadcast receiver, then it will become just N95-16GB.
So I think Nokia makes a big mistake by naming it N96 when it should be named as N7X in response to the other DVB-H phone. Now most of us are getting mixed up that N96 is N95 replacement when it is actually not.
If Nokia dont release N96 soon, people will get impatient and switch to Samsung INNOV8, but if Nokia release it sooner, people will find themselves with a useless DVB-H receiver and yet paying for its functionality.
Guess Nokia is facing with a Chicken and Egg situation now . . .
If INNOV8 comes along soon enough, I will just say goodbye to N96, Hello INNOV8 =)
OH MY GOD .
very very good space .
i will buy this phone and yes ! this phone better than c905 and n96 .
thank you sammy .

The N96 can d... moreI wonder how you came to this conclusion that INNOV8 cant upload/download while charging? Any source?
Usually when you wish to upload/download or transfer files from you PC, the USB connector itself acts as a charger and the phone get charged from you PC. My ancient Samsung D720 even does that. Am quite sure this will do the same.
Kenzo, 04 Aug 2008Im a symbian freek!!!!and a Nokia Fan! think this phone sweet specs... Can Sammy make Symbian?... moreWhat do you mean by "Can Sammy make Symbian???"...Samsung has been making Symbian phones for quite sometime now. They are licenced from Nokia. So you wont notice much improvement in UI. Now that nokia plans to buy back all shares of symbian and creating a non-profit symbian foundation, it will be royality-free open-source for everyone to use. Then only we will see some major improvement.
Im a symbian freek!!!!and a Nokia Fan! think this phone sweet specs... Can Sammy make Symbian????????????

Anonymous, 02 Aug 2008Advantages of NOKIA N96 over SAMSUNG i8510 INNOV8:
-Hardware media keys
... moreThe INNOV8 charging over its microUSB is a huge downside compared to the N96.
The N96 can download/upload and charge at the same time.
But the INNOV8 cannot, because both the charger and USB are used by the same port.
And, the N96 still has a far, far better design than the INNOV8.
So, the INNOV8 does have stereo FM radio; why doesn't GSMArena say so?
