Yes, the N85 will sell like hot cakes, I think, that screen is gorgeous. Though the N96 will do well enough on its own merits... eventually!
I don't think it will do that well in the UK, The networks will not be stocking it direct as it is too similar to the N96, Vodafone for example have no plans to stock it, Orange aren't stocking it, in fact no UK network currently lists it.

The only way to get it on contract in the UK is too go to a 3rd party dealer like Phones4U, or you can of course by it Sim-Free

That is the problem when Nokia release two phones with near identical features and looks at the same time, the N96 is looked on by the networks as the flagship device, the N85 is ignored.
