N96 announced in Barcelona

Nokia N96 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE dual slide handset with dual-band HSDPA support for worldwide coverage. N96 runs on S60 3rd edition, FP2 and has a 2.8" QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) TFT display with 16M colors. The feature-packed Nokia N96 features GPS with A-GPS support and geo-tagging for photos, Wi-Fi, scorching 16GB of onboard memory, plus a microSD slot.

Nokia N96 has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics and powerful dual LED flash. It also records video in VGA resolution at 30 fps. The photos and videos can be watched at the TV screen thanks to the TV-out support.

The connectivity set sports Wi-Fi b/g with UPnP support, microUSB v2.0, DVB-H class C, a 3.5mm stereo headphone plug and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP stereo audio.

The multimedia gear is the same as in Nokia N95 8GB: FM radio with RDS, Internet radio, MP3 player, video playback in-phone, as well as on a TV, with up to VGA resolution. The Windows media and Flash Lite 3.0 support complete the set.

One of the obvious shortcomings is the feeble Li-Ion BF-5L battery with a capacity of 950mAh. Nokia N96 weighs 126g, and is a tag taller than Nokia N95 8GB, the other dimensions pretty much on par.

The phone is expected to start shipping during 3Q 2008 with an estimated retail price of 550 EUR before taxes and subsidies.
