One of my blogging pals is a gadget fanatic. Just name any gadget and she can tell you a lot about the gadget, whether it is a smartphone, a digital camera, a laptop, an iPod or a playstation. Her 3G smartphone even has a built-in device which beeps each time there is an offer coming in through the advertiser’s RSS feed. That is why she always gets to grab whatever offers that appear in the advertiser’s website. This makes me want to change my mobile phone to a 3G smartphone too. If I have the money to splurge, I would love to get the Nokia N96 smartphone, the newest Nokia smartphone in the Nseries range of products.
The N96 was publicly announced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona 2008 and started selling in September 2008. The Nokia N96 has instant upload to Flickr, Yahoo, Google and Vox. It has 16 GB of internal flash memory, with the memory expandable to up to 48 GB with 32 GB micro SD/micro SDHC cards. Thus, there is plenty of space for applications, music, videos and maps. This handset has a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and Carl Zeiss optics. The N96 is a TV and video focused mobile device. It has the familiar dual slide design from the N95 but the screen is marginally longer and wider than the N95, measuring at 2.8 inch.
The Nokia N96 has the usual FM radio and it comes with a RDS (Radio Data System) which is typically used to display the radio station’s name and the current song or program name. The N96 has almost everything anyone could want from WiFi to GPS, camera, video, radio, etc. It is the perfect mobile phone and gadget anyone can ask for.
