Nokia N79 and N96-3 official tech specs published on Forum Nokia

Forum Nokia has published the official tech specs for the upcoming Nokia N79 and Nokia N96-3 (which is a variant of the N96 for the Americas). Oddly they don't list free RAM for either device, but that's possibly because the release firmwares aren't finished yet. You can also see the tech specs for the original Nokia N96 too.

Read on in the full article.

This perhaps explains why the N96 was "launched" alongside the N79 and N85, it was the N96-3 which they were really announcing.

Dvb-h

Among the extra features of the N96-3: DVB-H 1.0.
Does this make any sense for a headset targeted for the Americas? They could have removed DVB-H, and maybe used the space left for a beefier battery.

May be worth noting the CPU difference between the N95. They need to release the specs for the N85 soon.

N96
CPU:
Dual CPU
CPU Type: ARM 9
CPU Clock Rate: 264 MHz

N95

I would wait for actual performance benchmarks rather than making judgements based on hardware alone.

I've got a 5320 and an N95, and the 5320 is a LOT faster to use despite having a similar/inferior CPU. The N95 takes time to launch its built-in apps, while the 5320 launches them instantly. I assume this is because of the 5320's newer OS version, and its much larger amount of RAM.

It may be a case of Nokia trying to jumpstart the Americas DVB-H market by providing compatible hardware, perhaps as part of some agreement with other companies.

Trying to create new broadcast standards is always a chicken-and-egg situation. HDTVs went on sale even in countries where there weren't any HD services yet, because both manufacturers and broadcasters wanted to jumpstart the market for HD technology and content. I'm sure it was the same when colour TV started too...

Incidentally, it seems that there are at least some DVB-H services and/or trials in both North and South America:

Actually the 5320 has a faster processor than the N95 - 369mhz vs 330mhz. So that's why the 5320 is quicker to respond. My 6120, with 369mhz processor and only 64mb RAM, is quicker than my N95-8GB which has a 330mhz and 128mb RAM. The RAM makes no difference to the speed - it's the processor that counts for it all.

Problem with the video recording

Hi, I just bought N79 yesterday and it seems to have some problem with the video recording at low light(not very low but quit decent).
The camera fluctuates in yellow and white color constantly while recording.
While recording the color would suddenly change to dark yellow and the a moment after back to white tone, that keeps happening constantly.
I even updates the firmware from 11.043 to 32.001 but the problem still remains... could it be a faulty set kindly suggest if someone had a similar problem.
Please Help!!
