The N96 is coming

The N96 is coming and Nokia is going to make sure that its presence is felt. Its announcement was made on 19th in New Delhi and the device will be available in September. The timing is just right. Every one under the impression that the iPhone is going to cost just $200 (8000 Rs) will be utterly dissapointed , now that the actual prices have been announced i.e. 31K for 8Gb and 37K for the 16Gb. Even the ones who can afford it will now be having second thoughts.

- 2MP or 5MP camera
- 16Gb or 16Gb + 8Gb
- Is the touch screen that important?
- Go with Apple or Nokia (the most trusted brand in India)
- Will there be a good resell value for the iPhone?
- How easy is it to install applications on the iPhone?
- Why buy form Airtel or Vodafone, why not any store of my choice?

I do not hate the iPhone. I love its user interface and thats it. Will I pay 30K+ for a phone just because I like its user interface? NO WAY.

The N96 too i believe will be 30k+ but atleast it has all the features to justify the price.
