Nokia N96 from 3 arrives in September

Uploaded - 21 Jul 2008-1

Weighing in at 125g with 16GB of memory and HSDPA brilliance, the Nokia N96 arrives on the 3UK network in September.

It’ll be available for around £15 per month on mix’n’match. I’ll take two, please.

I think I need this one.

Here’s the QIK video of it in action:

no point buying this phone its a limited edition model – true N95 successor will be OMAP3 powered with faster processor and graphics and new S60 v5 UI this phone is seriously lacking in the graphical and power departments nice video capabilties though!

“HSDPA brilliance”? er, doesn't just about every new handset have that? Like the new Skypephone at about 1/10th the cost to the MNO?

And 16GB of storage? Neither here nor there – literally. Serious musophiles have 80GB iPods, otherwise 8GB will do you for many days of listening.

Sorry, but having roughed one up for a while, I am singularly unimpressed with the N96. Not enough, too late.

As James Qik'd, the graphics is a backward step while Super Monkey Ball shows the way on the iPhone.

And don't get me started on the awful, awful keypad. When we KNOW tactile feedback is king, that in-the-pocket or under-the-desk entry is important for many, they go and make it completely FLAT..

N96 = a flaming great pile of meh.

Oh, and the plastic kickstand will last all of 6 minutes in real life.

its hard to get overly im pressed by the N96 – esp if you already have an N95 8gb.
I'm on an N95 old skool – so may well go this route – but I'm still wondering about the tube and its as yet unknown n-series big brother. oh and what ever android has to throw at us.

Hi Ewan,

Can you remember if there was any physical 3 branding on the devices that were on display? For example the N95 8GB has a small 3 logo above the camera.

Thanks.

brilliant.

you say 16gb is too much storage and it should have 8gb, which is one of the funniest things i have ever read on a technology website, then slate the keyboard after praising an iphone. do you read through your posts before you press the submit button?

or maybe you've either a) never really held a real life n96 but wish you had, or b) quite obviously never tried to “tactile feedback is king” under-the-desk txt msg on the iphone.

just hilarious. let the phone come out before you slate it.

I think you need to head your own advice – there is no useful tactile feedback on the slick face used for this and similar keypads.

The device has been in circulation for months – plenty of people have had hands-on pre-production.
