Nokia N96 Priced at
Update: Whoops, the N96 actually costs P40,650 as of launch time. As Nokia Philippines’ Nikka Abes states though: “the N96 also comes free with Smart Gold’s Plan 2500 if you subscribe to myTV.”
Well, the “official” launch of the Nokia N96 in the Philippines is really set for this Monday (October 27) at the Silvercity Mall. But there’s no doubting David’s first-hand experience with Nokia’s new “official flagship”, which happened during the first day of CEL! Manila 2008. Continue to see a great summary.
[P34,999] will give you 16GB of internal memory (with support for and additional microSD card up to 8GB), DVB-H mobile TV with two cable TV channels pre-installed (one is MTV Philippines), a 5 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 2.8-inch QVGA display and up to 2 days of heavy use on a single charge.
I’m still not sure about the last statement; the Nokia N96′s 950mAh BL-5F battery is quite honestly a bit lacking for a high-end model. All those features need lots of power to work, which is why I’m quite pleased with the Nokia E71′s 1500mAh battery.
In any case, thanks David! Now Filipinos with cash to burn can now make up their minds over this new high-end phone from Nokia, now that they know how much it costs. Personally, I still find Nokia’s “unofficial” flagship, the 5800 XpressMusic, more intriguing.
