Anonymous, 24 Jul 2008I wouldn't totally define the INNOV8 as an N96 killer, because to be a 'killer', the phone wou... morewell INNOV8 has A2DP, FM radio with RDS. the only thing it does not have is DVB-H.
The true direct rival of Nokia N96 is Samsung INNOV8 i8510. It will kill the N96 hands down.
What Samsung INNOV8 i8510 has that Nokia N96 does not have:
-8 megapixel camera
-QVGA 120fps video recording (as well as VGA 30fps video record)
-available in 8Gb and 16Gb variants (w/ microsd expansion slot)
-DivX (& WMV) Player
-Dual speakers w/ 3D surround sound supported by DNse 2.0
-HSDPA 7.2 Mbps
-DLNA (Digitial Living Network Alliance)
All I can say is, it will take a customer so much brand loyalty to nokia to still prefer the N96 over Samsung INNOV8 i8510. Samsung INNOV8 i8510 is the new king now! Nokia's plans are not focused on 8MP camera phones. They are more inclined to developing touchscreen phones for the moment. See, Nokia's future devices are N79, N85 which are still on 5MP, and 5800, the first S60 touch UI.
well seem thy era of 8MP hp is at the middle of war now..after this one and thy sonyericsson slide 8mp soon looking for thy latest nokia to fight them.
this is where we wait for. all inside and symbian. Good job samsung
rofl its really funny reading the sony fans say "sony is best", the samsung guys "ur c905 is bullcrap" and the nokia dulls "oh yeah my n95/96 give me an orgasm" and nobody see the use for the phone, if u are not a business man (and a succefull one -_-") u dont need gps, 3d aceleator chip, 8mpx, divx and all the stuff.
I am a big Nokia fan but they are starting to fall behind. The N96 hasn't been released yet and there are a few better phones coming out from Sony Ericsson and Samsung. Nokia, get your act together and release the N96 within a month or scrap it and say goodbye to your big market share.
Nokia fans are getting tired of waiting 6 months+ for your premiere models to be released. It doesn't take 6 months to start shipping phones .
Michael Ropy, 24 Jul 2008Just wait for LG KC910 (8MP)!seriously i wont put too much hope for a LG 8mpx. i have a ku990 b4 and the camera is not so great compare to others 5mpx. for the i8510 i hope to see great camera samples and reviews
Michael Ropy, 24 Jul 2008Just wait for LG KC910 (8MP)!.. Who would wait for an LG when theres a Samsung and a Sony Ericsson with 8mp cameras already?
what's wrong with people chill....
Its a cool phone!
looks like a great phone. not even going to lie upon that. but you guys are comparing the n96/95 to this. this is 8mp which obviously blows n95 out of proportion. i have n95 gb and best phone ever in my taste. the c905 and this samsung phone does seem like a better phone than the n95 but i can assure you when nokia comes out with an 8mp phone. it will for sure be the number one phone. just take a look at the n82 that camera, nothing has come close. all i have to say is. nokia is waiting to blow our minds away after those phones come out. we are in for a sure surprise. and i am totally ready for it!
looks good & sounds good.im sure everyone would love to have it.....im one of them :o)
I wouldn't totally define the INNOV8 as an N96 killer, because to be a 'killer', the phone would have to be in the same class [the INNOV8 and N96 are, in fact, in the same class] but the 'killer' phone has to have mass features over the competition.
The INNOV8 has a better camera and 5.1 Surround Sound.
And, if the INNOV8's camera quality is poor, then it will not be the N96 killer, because then the N96 will have a better camera, and all the stuff it already has that is better: speaker placement, multimedia keys, HSCSD,
NGage, live TV, an RSS reader*, faster GPRS and EDGE, microUSB [which is better than the INNOV8's Samsung USB], the N96 is more compact [N96 is 92cc, but the INNOV8 is about 98cc], A2DP for Bluetooth** and stereo FM radio***.
*I'm not sure if the INNOV8 has an RSS reader in its browser or not.
**I'm not sure if the INNOV8 has A2DP or not.
***I'm not sure if the INNOV8 has stereo FM radio like the N96 or not, but I know it has FM radio.
All the INNOV8 has over the N96 is better camera features.
Any other features the INNOV8 has, the N96 has also, but the N96 has a bunch of features that the INNOV8 does not.
the samsung is the first company in the world introduced the 8MP camera kit for mobiles. After that The SE announced the c905. There is no greate of se. All the credit goes to samsung.this is the best mobile than which are the other symbian phones. accelerometer for rotating, this best feature in this i8510 INNOVATE. 16m colors, optical mouse are also good. Samsung is the leader in mobile. B coz its maintains the quality than other mobiles.this is the excellent phone. Its exactly n96 killer.
LoveGod, 24 Jul 2008I'm talking strictly to the n95's camera, it's picture quality, i don't care what it's built o... morei tested picture quality of n95,g800,g 600,lg 990,se 850,panasonic 905i and se 905ics,nokia shoots the worst ones my dear!
