Today the N96 has gone on sale for the rest of the UK, London had a separate launch date of September 24th where the device went on sale exclusively at Nokia's flagship stores on Regent Street and at Terminal 5 (Heathrow airport). Despite its name the phone many Nokia enthusiasts don’t conceder the phone an upgrade to the N95 as the phones hardware is a downgrade in several ways compared to the N95. The CPU in the N96 has been downgraded to ARM9 264MHz where as the N95 has a Dual 332Mhz ARM11 based CPU, The N96 also has no hardware 3D graphics accelerator where as the N95 does. The Infar-red port has also been removed on the N96 (who uses that anyway? ) The camera’s Digital zoom is only x10 on N96, while it's x20 on N95 8GB and the Camera Lens in the N96 is 2.8/5.2, and in the N95 2.8/5.6 which means the N95 has more aperture. Despite these hardware downgrades the phone still apparently plays N-gage games just as good as the N95. On a plus side the N96 has a built in Mobile TV DVB-H receiver, but as one of the only countrys in the world to broadcast DVH-H is Finland that’s pretty useless for the majority of people, that would have been a major selling point to me. As a little consolation the UK N96 does have the BBC I-player included but that will only work over Wifi and Not 3/3.5g... The N95 has been upgraded quite a bit on the software side however, Hardware acceleration for H.264 , WMV is now available as well as MPEG4. The phone also natively supports WMV without having to install a third-party application, I guess I could now stream live TV or recorded from my media center pc if I ever get an N96 The N96 looks a nice enough phone but I can’t help just feeling it’s more of an N95 with a little hardware change and a software upgrade. If i was looking for a new phone unless i lived in a country where DVB-H was broadcasted I would still go for the N95 as it would be a lot more cheaper. Read below for a feature list and comparison to the N95.
