Nokia N96 images and specs leaked!

“Thanks to a possible mistake of web-masters some info on the Finnish giant’s new N96 smartphone leaked from his German site. The product’s dedicated page was posted at the site and then removed, however tons of Internet sources managed to grab all pieces of info they only could find. Reportedly, Nokia N96 specs resemble those of the N95. However it comes with larger storage (16GB) and Flash Lite 3 support. Curiously, the new N96 is more of the Nokia N81 in terms of design, being a glossy all-black slider, plus it has grown length- and width-wise, yet dropped some millimeters off its girth, as compared with the predecessor.According to IntoMobile, Nokia’s German page had the following specs of the N96 posted : Networks – GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 MHz and UMTS/HSDPA 850/2100 MHz Symbian S60 3rd Edition FP 2 Display – 2.8” QVGA, 16M colors Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) AGPS DVB-H Class C Camera – 5-megapixel, Carl Zeiss lens, video capture at VGA 30 fps (double LED flash at video shooting) Memory – 16 GB microSD-slot 3.5-mm jack microUSB port Battery – 950 mAh Dimensions – 103x55x18 mm Weight – 125 g” via

O2 Xda Orbit 2 Review at 4winmobile!

“When one removes the Xda Orbit 2 from the box the first impression is of sleekness and mirror finishes. The housing designed and specified by O2 serves to eliminate the ‘hard’ corners of the HTC Polaris and replaces them with gentle curves as seen on the original Orbit. These ensure a pleasing and comfortable position in the hand. The style of the main body is bright reflective silver which surrounds the edges of the Orbit 2 in a distinctive strip and holds within it the side mounted controls. This is set into a matte black casing which is almost velvety to the touch. This looks good in contrast to the polished silver and also serves to give a ‘tactile’ surface which means that when held grip slippage is reduced. I hate to say it but on an emotional level the Orbit 2 fairly screams to be picked up and fondled – I found myself picking it up over and over and moving it around in my grip – prior even to turning it on and charging it for review! I don’t believe in calling PDAs sexy – but the Xda Orbit 2 certainly is! Most of the front face of the Orbit 2 is taken up with a highly polished transparent touch sensitive screen which is pierced only by the second camera. The actual display screen in set centrally within this with the Xda and O2 logos printed immediately above and below this area.” Read more here:
