Nokia N-96 a fantastic combination of style and power .


Most of the people are now comparing nokia N-96 with apple i-Phone 3G . But I'm sure N-96 will be the better choice.
A few weeks before I have posted something about i-Phone 3G (click here)
Let me say onething i- Phone is nothing infront of N-96. On seeing it first N-96 will look like an elder brother of i-Phone ! with stylish touch screen and buttons .


The N96, Nokia’s new flagship handset, is the N95 improved a step or two technologically. The body is an N81 with a dual-slide action. We copied the complete specifications from the Nokia site and pasted it below. The surprise is the built-in 16GB memory. The iPhone may have taken the first shot Nokia is not far behind. The DVB-H and GPS photo tagging are awesome additions to what the N95 has got. If Nokia can maintain this incremental feature improvements, these Nseries phones will literally be your “computer in your pocket” in a very short time. Realistically, I’ll give Nokia 2 years to do this.

Some people may think that there is not that much difference or there is nothing over n-95 .
Look the specifications keenly we can see a lot of difference . The major one is ' touch screen' and we have improved flash and memory . And also we have an inbuilt tv tuner !
But the only think that I found not good was it's battery life! we expected something more.

N96 is not a touch screen phone.
although it is very good phone but in the USA is useless because, you can't use the TV function neither the video phone, in addition the office version you have to buy a licenese which add to the very expensive price.
the GPS has a free navigation trial which also you have to renew and pay extrea.
