N96: Nokia's new flagship
Nokia's new N96 provides a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, turn-by-turn voice navigation, up to 24GB of memory, sound and music, pre-loaded N-Gage gaming access and a big 2.8-inch display.
Available from December 1st, the N96 has a recommended retail price of $1599.
Nokia claims the N96 redefines mobile entertainment. This includes everything from taking a picture, location-tagging it to a specific place, to accessing YouTube videos using the fast internet browser and even watching live TV in countries where DVB-H is available.
Its 2.8-inch display, built-in 3D stereo speakers and integrated kick-stand make the N96 great for watching handsfree video, and there is also a TV-out cable to allow for media consumption on larger screens.
New Zealand consumers who purchase the Nokia N96 can download any one of four full series of leading BBC TV shows including Walking with Dinosaurs, Little Britain (series 1), The Catherine Tate Show (series 1) and Yes Minister (series 1) from www.nokia.co.nz/video/bbc.
The Nokia N96 has the ability to store up to 40 hours of video content either transferred from your computer or found online at the Nokia Video Centre via USB 2.0 connection with WLAN and HSDPA support. The video Centre offers access to video content ranging from movie trailers and comedy to news from content providers such as YouTube, Reuters, and Sony Pictures. The Nokia N96 supports common video formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media Video and Flash.
