Introducing the Nokia N96

Nokia got beat to the punch by the blogosphere in the past day or so with leaked photos of the soon to be announced N96. Details are somewhat limited but what has been leaked is very interesting. This product launch seems to be taking a swift kick at the upcoming Apple announcement regarding the update to the Jesus Phone. Nokia is seemingly meeting or beating all the updates that Apple has in store and this just might be the main reason this phone has been ‘leaked’ in the first place.

  • Large 2.8″ screen
  • 16 gigabytes
  • Supports 8GB microSDHC Cards
  • WLAN and HSDPA support
  • USB 2.0
  • 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera, 30 frames per second video
  • Integrated A-GPS
  • Nokia Maps including satellite views optional turn-by-turn mode and voice guided navigation
  • A unique feature is a built in stand that allows for table top viewing

As with every recent Smart Phone launch this model will focus on high quality video with on-board editing options for easy You Tube Video uploads. Of course it won’t include a journalism degree so don’t expect the quality of said videos to increase any time soon and one has to ask if You Tube really needs more mediocre videos.

Hopefully more specifics will come out in the next days about this update to incredibly popular Nokia N95.
