Nokia N96 N-Gage gaming phone concept

The first Nokia N96 concept phone appeared on the Net last March. It was an interesting phone and stirred quite a lively discussion about possible future looks and specs.

Now, Nokia fans at French Spanish discussion board ToDoSymbian came up with another even more interesting Nokia N96 N-Gage gaming phone concept, that takes into account the latest developments in both S60 and N-Gage software/service platforms:

Nokia N96 is a really interesting concept combining all the best features from full touchscreen phone, numeric keypad, QWERTY keyboard and portable gaming console into one cool gadget.

The specs for this Nokia N96 would be:

  • Quadband GSM (850/900/1800/1900) WCDMA 2100, HSDPA
  • 6 mpx camera
  • 3.2″ 16M color display
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0
  • full QWERTY keyboard and numeric keypad
  • DMB TV, FM Radio
  • 4 audio speakers
  • built-in GPS
  • full touchscreen with motion sensor and joystick navigation
  • dimensions 102.5x56x17.6 mm
  • weight: 115g

My beef current Nokia N96 is – why settle for what would be a lame 6 mpx camera, when we already know that 8 megapixel/optical zoom phone cameras will appear in high end mobile phones next year? Will we even have 6 megapixel cameras?

And where’s HSUPA and 7.2 Mbps HSDPA data transfer support that will be incorporated into mobile phones next year as well? Again. Another interesting concept. And this one a bit closer to the real model. At least in size.

And to see what  N96 looks like in live pictures and video, check out our Nokia N96 review.

    What to say about Nokia’s new masterpiece N96, it’s simply a jewel embedded with cutting edge technology describing the finesse and expertise of the people behind this sophisticated marvel. It is packed with all those features needed to place it on the higher padestal than its contemporaries. It fulfils the needs of a wide range of people from amateurs to businessmen. It’s quite dear nevertheless, one can’t help get a hand over it or at least I can’t!

    hmm… its kind of “OK” there is no punch in this mobile. a ngage concept should be like sony psp design in a phone the qwert keyboard is a total mess.
