I’m sure you’ll be aware that we’ve been talking lots about the upcoming Nokia smartphone, N96. Here’s just a quick headsup to say that it’s been spotted (I mean the arriving date) on both UK mobile giants’ sites Phones4U and the Carphone Warehouse that the N96 will be arriving in about two weeks time in the beginning of October.
While the Carphone Warehouse have already placed the N96 into it’s already launched section, it remains under the coming soon heading on the Phones4U site. Nevertheless, both firms are now already accepting pre-orders!
Here’s just a quick sum up of the N96 to remind you of why we are so excited!
The Nokia N96 mobile phone takes the impressive N95 and makes it even smarter. It has the same clever two-way sliding mechanism as its predecessor, giving you the choice of a conventional keypad or music controls, but there are quite a few changes inside.
The 5 megapixel camera is now linked with the built-in GPS mapping, letting you ‘geotag’ your pictures with location data. You’re able to capture video clips in DVD-like quality at 30 frames per second – and there’s compatibility with a wide range of video playback formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media Video and Flash Video. The Nokia N96 even has a stand on the back for handsfree viewing. Music is also well catered for, with a massive 16GB of expandable storage, 3D stereo speakers and a standard 3.5mm headphone socket. With WiFi and 3G HSDPA connectivity rounding off the package, this is a true multimedia computer.
If you’re interested, you might like to know that the UK networks which will be offering mobile deals for the Nokia N96 will be O2 and Orange.
At the moment, for a minimum contract length of 18 months, we have noticed that O2 is offering the cheapest deal if cost per month is your first priority, and for just £35 a month you will be able to snatch the handset for free.
As for Orange, the cheapest deal they are currently offer is £45 a month in order to take home the handset for free, but of course as you will know with online offers on latest handsets these days, there are complicated discounts and cash redemptions. So we strongly advise you to take a look at our resource links below as there are plenty more deals available online where that came from and hopefully you will be able to find the package that best suits you.
