Summary: Nokia has shovelled in functions at the expense of usability so much that we're surprised Apple doesn’t run, “I’m an N96, I’m an iPhone” ads. It’s the cutting-edge of mobile tech, for sure, but does it have to feel like quite such hard work?
Excerpt: The latest round of Nokia Nseries smartphones have hit the US. Fondly termed the -3 models, these are the Nokia N96-3, N85-3 and N79-3. The -3 means that these are US models with US 3G on AT&T's 850/1900MHz bands and they're sold by Nokia stores here in the US and by US retailers like Dell, Best Buy and Buy.com. They carry US warranties but are sold unlocked without a contract.
Excerpt: The Nokia N96 comes packed with every multimedia feature you could want on a mobile phone, starting off with Live TV, N-Gage gaming and much more. But how do all these features measure up? Read on and see what else is in store with the Nokia N96.
Summary: Steve Litchfield starts the All About Symbian review of Nokia's new Nseries flagship, the N96. Part 2 will be a walk through its applications and unique selling points and part 3 will look in detail at the N96's multimedia capabilities.
Summary: Unlike its predecessor, the N96 isn't revolutionary but it remains a reasonable upgrade to the N95. It’s expensive and the DVB-H feature is useless in Australia, but as a multimedia device it is one of the better mobile phones on the market.
