New Nokia N96

nokia-n-96The N96 is longer and a bit slimmer than N95 8GB though it gives a look of a bigger version of the N81. New Nokia N96 reminds one of the N95 8GB; however, unlike the 95, there are as many as 11 keys on the D-pad. You need to get used to smaller keys. The N96 2.8-inch is a treat of a screen and the excellent picture is a perfect complement to its generous size. The contrast too is commendable, remaining perfectly legible even in direct sunlight.

The 128MB of Ram of the N96 is a feat in Symbian terms but the CPU is a different story altogether. The dual ARM9 264 MHz CPU, though faster than most other devices, it is a downgrade from the dual ARM 11 332 MHz that were the highlight of the Nokia N95 versions.

Nokia N96 is equipped with a five-megapixel camera with a maximum image resolution of 2592×1944 pixels. It has auto-focus and is more a “video-focused device” since it sports dual-LED flash (instead of Xenon) and lets you shoot videos at VGA (640×480) 30fps.

Nokia N96 runs on the Symbian 9.3 OS with Series60 third edition user interface. Feature Pack 2 comes preinstalled, bringing both visual and performance improvements. One of the most important benefits of the new UI is the new active standby layout, which allows quick access to a lot more features. You can even assign shortcuts to websites of your choice for quicker access. As with any Symbian phone, there is also a built-in voice recognition system.
