Nokia N96 Hands-On: Basically a Video Oriented N95

Illustration for article titled Nokia N96 Hands-On: Basically a Video Oriented N95

The N95 smartphone just does fine with its video playback. But the N96's 16GB of internal memory, slightly bigger 2.8-inch screen, DVB TV tuner, special video browsing UI and kickstand make it better than its pappy.

Note: The back of the phone has a new designer texture that we like a lot more than the now generic velvechron grip coating you see on a lot of handsets. We didn't get to play N-Gage on this phone to test out the gaming-specific button backlights (another upgrade from the N95) but we'll have some video of that next. I would not recommend it as an upgrade for existing N95 owners, but those interested should be reminded that the DVB and the non-US frequency 3G won't help you much.

@ARRGH406: the phone does have wifi, its practically standerd in Nokia high-end nowdays.

Its a brillient product and its going to sell even more than the 7million sold by the N95.

Cant waid till opera 9.6 with flash lite 3 is release: Youtube and flash video stright of the nokia n96.

Just have to avoid upgrading to Q3 and get it as possibly a free upgrade. U.K phone market rules (the phones that is... not the tarrifs)
