Nokia N96, the smartphone that might be the best thing from the Nseries family (for the moment, at least), is now on sale in the US, via Best Buy’s website.
The handset is available unlocked, for a price that won’t please too many of you: $899.99 – that’s with $240 more than the Best Buy price of RIM’s BlackBerry Bold.
Although announced by Nokia quite a long time ago, in February 2008, the Nseries flagship handset is only now available in North America. Even so, and even with this hefty price tag, the N96 is still bound for success.
When it comes to design, Nokia N96 is by no means a “spectacular phone”, but that’s somehow compensated by the smartphone’s features.
Quad band GSM and dual band HSDPA connectivity
2.8 inch TFT QVGA display, 16 million colors
Symbian 9.3, S60 3.2 Edition
5 MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, flash and video
16GB of internal memory
3.5mm headset jack
According to Boy Genius Report, the N96 might also be found in Best Buy’s stores, hence not only online, for a lower price: $799.99.
Well, we wish you luck in case you’re going out to buy it. Just don’t forget those 800 or 900 bucks!
