Nokia N96 now official – coming out in Q4 2008

By on


The Nokia N96 is now coming to American users in Q4 2008. The phone, the successor to the Nokia N95, features the same keyboard layout, but will come with a 16GB built-in memory with an microSD card, GPS and Wi-Fi Support. Is this a competitor to the iPhone – I think so, even though it lacks a touch screen.

No word if this will be make it to Australian hands, or what carrier will it be on. Full specs are below.
