Nokia N96 available on 3 for £30/month

Finally, the Nokia N96 is available for ordering from 3’s UK website. I’m not sure whether you can actually walk into a 3Store and pick up one of these yet. But I’m pleased to see they’re online and orderable.

Our very own James Whatley isn’t a fan because the N96 is missing a graphics chip present in the N95 8GB. Other than that, the N96 looks like a fairly decent handset. Big screen. Who’s getting one?

Me!

Was debating with myself to get the iPhone, Bold, E71 or N96. Looks like it’s the N96. I saw James Whatley’s Qik video but couldn’t see the difference between the two phones.

Btw Three are doing half price mobile broadband to existing customers at the moment.

Why sell it – can you name ONE thing that you can do today in UK with a N96 that you cannot do with a N95-8GB with updated firmware?

AND the N95-8GB has a faster video subsystem AND a bigger battery AND supports SIP VoIP – all of which the N96 does not!

Best that you save your money – looking forward to the arrival of the N79 or the N85….

well – the N96 doesnt need a bigger battery
it works with iplayer download. which seems to fail on the N95/8gig
its a slimer (more attractive?) design.
alot of people will just get it free on upgrade?
it handles video better with hardware codecs.

but its not a 'must have' upgrading to N96 form N95 8gb unless you want to.
