Nokia N96 is a perfect call for people who want loads of data on their cell phones. Explore this review & know about the features and specifications of Nokia N 96 mobile phone.

Nokia N96

Nokia has gone a step ahead with its latest model N96. A part of the N series, the model comes as a successor to N95. It has surpassed all the phones in the mobile arena with a capacity of 16 GB onboard phone memory and an option to expand it further, via a microSDHC slot, a capacity which no mobiles flaunt about right now. The cell phone has dimensions of 103 X 55 X 18mm and weighs 125 g. The only hitch in the phone is that its battery back up is not something exceptional.
 
Design/Looks
The all new, two-side slide phone, N96 is similar to N95 in its looks. The only difference between the two is that the former is an improved version. The large colored screen which occupies most of the front face of the cell phone is a delight to look at. A very thoughtful designing is shift of the 3.5 mm jack, which is placed at the side instead of the top and makes the phone easier to carry. The keys of N96 are quite simple and user friendly.
 
Features
While most of the features of N96 are the same as the other Nokia phones in the N-series, something that stands out is its high in-built memory capacity.  The camera has a display type of TFT, 16M colors and a 5MP camera, with auto focus, flash and video recording. A modest feature is the kick stand on the back of the handset that allows you to rest your phone upright on a table - useful if you're trying to watch a full-length film and don't fancy holding it for an hour. All the connectivity options that were there in Nokia N95 are also available in N 96, including GPS, HSDPA (3.5G) and Wi-Fi.
