Updating nokia n96
The Nokia N79, a candy bar–styled smartphone, will come with three changeable back covers.The covers have an unusual ability: the contacts in the lower-left-hand corner of each cover will trigger the phone's software to change the phone's screen theme, matching the cover's color.The keypad is also a bit too wide for our liking, and on the whole we weren’t too crazy about tapping out messages on this thing.A downward slide changes the screen orientation to landscape and reveals four media keys- FF, Play/Pause, Stop and RW- that can also be used for gaming controls.
Like the N81 everything on the device is flush with the exception of the directional pad and Multimedia key, giving the N96 a much more modern and minimalist appearance than its predecessor.The menu and clear keys, which are on the corners, can be a bit cramped and awkward to press. The keys are all flush, and while they offer sufficient feedback navigating without looking is all but impossible.As is often the case with sliders, the overhang can interfere with the top row of keys.The Nokia N96 smartphone has a relatively big 2.8-inch, 320-by-240-pixel LCD display and runs the latest Symbian Series 60 Version 3, Feature Pack 2 software.
It's basically an incremental upgrade to the popular N95 video and music phone.
The power button is too small and travel too far, and you cannot hold the phone by the sides and press it with one finger, you have to brace it at the bottom.
