Nee, 29 Aug 2008well just 8mpx doest change any thing , i mean u seen Nokia... moreMobile-Review already has a hands-on with N96.
It doesn't offer anything extra that could possibly slash out other top models in the market as you claim. Nokia will need another N series to tackle INNOV8 imo.

What the hell is this talk about 8 megapixels or 5 megapixels. Even a layman knows picture quality does not solely depend upon megapixel count but on lens, ccd size and many other features. And my 6 years old, 2 megapixels canon powershot a60 gives better results than my 5mp nokia n82. So dont run after the megapixels but the picture quality and the major thing is the phone features which nokia has in abundance.

[deleted post]really QVGA is old age? yes i agree i'm bored of it too but its not completely bad it gets the job done, you can enjoying watch videos on the 2.8 or even 2.6 screen of QVGA, it would be cool to have VGA like the Diamond but at least QVGA has become a baseline for the phones, SE and others still release a couple of phone with res much lower than QVGA and in them you really can say that its old....i'm also hoping for a new basline that atleast half VGA but we can't have it all....lets see how the new OLED screen works!!!!! later homies keep chillin!!!!!!

People who run after megapixels go buy a real digicam instead !!! we admire nokias for its overall performance and features yes there is some fones superpass nokias in megapixel stupid count !! but can't beat nokias in the overall fone features ... nothing complete but nokias excel their fone .. go change ur fones every month running after megapixels as every 3 month a new 10 mp 12mp or even 20mp hits the market ... u ppl who run after that makes companies lives !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and sell!

Al, 29 Aug 2008Why does Nokia keep making their phones same design... i'm ... morebecause the phones belong to a series, they are supposed to share similar exterior so they can be defined as a n series phone. i mean you look at the new Volkswagen car range, the cars all share similar exterior yet cater to different peoples needs.

As everyone knows, Nokia's foot print in the US market is far from their best performance. But you may want to look into what you are paying for and who is pocketing that money. As for the software/firmware update fee of $15. This can be waved by doing the software yourself with Nokia NSU, free and when you want.
What ‘other brand’ are you meaning? I’m interested in a phone company that offers a no questions asked policy.
Can you please elaborate on the ‘charge and talk at the same time’ comment? It doesn’t make sense to me.

That explains it.. less people to take care of; less the amount of problems.

Firmware upgrade is free; maybe the center you're talkin' about should be reported to Nokia or something..

riddimbob, 29 Aug 2008I think the main thing that you HAVE to take notice of betw... moreConnetcted to Nokia's services? The market do not have the services that nokia have?

The Nokia provides the following "services" in the city I live in is "famous" for...
- having customers to wait somewhere between 1~2 drop off the phone for service
- not able to check through the phone's IMEI that the phone was sold through the official distributors, hence warranty should be provided. If there is any problem with the phone, sorry, either go home and get the sales receipt, or carry the receipt with you ALL the time!
- a charge of US$15 to upgrade the firmware...
- blame customers to "charge and talk at the same time" for faulty battery

The other brand, with sales being (much) less than 1/4 of Nokia, provides:

- waiting time of less than 10 mins to drop off phone for services
- no receipt is required because the company checks through the phones' IMEI's to ensure warranty should be provided
- free firmware update
- never blames customers
