The Nokia N96 is big. That’s the first thing you notice when you hold this phone in your hand. Then you notice the slight UI lag, perhaps caused by all those features crammed into a phone. Less obvious is the available 16GB of onboard memory, which makes microSDs unnecessary. In any case, a full review to follow; more pics available over at Philippine affiliate Technograph.

This is old-hat, but Flickr is actually a great comparison tool for comparing cameras. Just visit Flickr’s camera finder, select the brand and model, and you’re instantly presented with a selection of photos taken with that particular camera.

Barring the obvious differences in picture quality (which also make clear the advantages of a dSLR working in good natural lighting), aren’t the similarities between the Nokia N96 and the N81 8GB as apparent?
Much better pics and a review to follow, in that order. For now, here’s another pic for your satisfaction:
Let’s hope the N96 isn’t as slow as its older counterpart. Dun dun dunnnn!!
Yikes, pity my Nokia N95. I may soon need to replace it since the bigger brother is out now and the Nokia N96 is getting a lot of attention. Just unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2008, the N96 sports GPS, an accelerometer, 16GB of storage, a 5MP camera, DVD-quality video, a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, Wi-Fi, and a handy kickstand for desktop viewing. Its got dual slider and scroll wheel functions just like the N81.
