Nokia ships first N96 smartphone units

The Nokia N96 smartphone has started shipping, the Finnish phone giant says.

It is available for an estimated retail price of €550 (US$792) before taxes and subsidies, according to Nokia, which isn't specifying which countries will get their hand on the first units.

But one thing is clear, Nokia fans in the U.S. will have to wait until the fourth quarter, when it will ship an Americanised version, which will be slightly more expensive at $895.

The phone is an incremental upgrade of the existing N95. It has a display that measures 2.8 inches, a 5-megapixel camera and support for navigation using A-GPS (Assisted Global Positioning System).

Data is stored on a 16 GB internal memory or and on a microSD card, and users can surf the Web using either Wi-Fi or HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) at 3.6M bps (bits per second).

Nokia is also hyping the phone's video capabilities -- it supports the most common video formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media Video and Flash Video.

All these specifications looked pretty good when the phone was announced back in February, but they have now been surpassed by the competition. The recently announced Samsung INNOV8 has an 8-megapixel camera and HSDPA at 7.2M bps.
