Nokia N9 Announced: Packs MeeGo, 8 Megapixel Camera, and Swiping

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really worthwhile on this blog. Then again, it’s been a long time since there’s been any worthwhile Nokia news. And so, after a four-month hiatus, it’s time again to look at one of Nokia’s latest phones: the oft-rumored N9.

The Nokia N96 NAM Gets Unattractively Priced

If you’re looking for Nokia’s hottest smartphone right now, this ain’t it. That distinction goes to the N85, a device that looks and feels like a winner. But if you’re yearning for the plasticness that is the N96, you may be pleased to know that you can now preorder the North American version for $842.40 [...]

A New Round of Nokia Firmware Updates: N82, N96

Well, that was quick. The Nokia N96, fresh from being released mere (days? weeks?) ago, already has its own firmware update. While no one’s sure on what the firmware actually fixed, what’s more important is what the update actually broke: earpiece volume. Ouch.

Probably Not a Deal: N96 at Best Buy For $799 in Oct

Best Buy has been going crazy today. First, they inadvertently announced three HTC phones (Touch Dual, Touch Pro, Touch Diamond) slated to be released before carrier Telus themselves even announced them. Then, what looks to be a BB employee managed to grab this shot of the Nokia N96 tucked away in the retail chain’s computer [...]

The Nokia N85, N79, N96 In Pictures (An Evening With S60)

As expected, the Evening With S60 event was a blast even though I didn’t take home one of the two N95-3′s that were given away. There was the accelerometer-controlled RC truck, booths set up with Reset Generation and Maps 2.0, waiters serving up the hors d’oeuvres, and of course, phones.

The N96 Gets Reviewed

A user over at All About Symbian posted the first unofficial review of the Nokia N96 MonsterPhone, and it’s looking pretty good: other than a stiff camera shutter key and a couple of minor S60 app glitches, there’s a lot to like. Of interest might be the better-than-expected battery life (“the N96 lasted a full [...]

…And the Nokia N96 Starts Shipping

Nokia’s managed to spice up an otherwise uneventful day with some interesting news: the Nokia N96 has started shipping. To where, I have absolutely no idea. However, I DO know that for a mere 550 euros ($796 USD at last count), you too can feel the power of Nokia’s latest and greatest* device.

Nokia N96 To Hit North America in Q4

While the Nokia N96 is nothing new, its release in the USA and beyond certainly is. And it’s coming all right – sometime in the fourth quarter of 2008, and bringing with it support for North American 3G bands. That’s the good news.

First Hands-On Review of the Nokia N96 Phone Released!

Talk about ridiculousness. Mobile-Review managed to get hold of a prototype Nokia N96 (due out in Q3 2008) a couple of months early. What happens when you get a phone months ahead of release? A huge freakin’ review, that’s what.

More on the Nokia N96 Phone

It’s been a good week since the official announcement of the Nokia N96, and I didn’t have much to say about it considering Nokia.de’s little boo-boo/information leak pretty much cleared up most of the questions. But I’ll throw out some thoughts on it anyway… Nokia N96: A powerhouse of a phone.
