Mobile News is carrying an interesting article, and in the manner of giving a balanced view, I thought I would bring it up for our readers to comment on.
The gist of the article is that the N95 (and to a certain extent N95-8GB) was the first of a new breed of devices to cram in a superset of features, that was arguably not in any other devices at the time. However, that isn’t the case anymore, and there are some serious contenders out there, from Apple, Samsung, and the like:
…the N96, due next month, may find it harder with the heightened competition to make a mark in the same way.
Notably, O2 has already ruled the N96 out. It has the Apple iPhone of course, and a spokesperson said simply its move was a “portfolio decision”.
Of course, Vodafone and Three WILL be carrying the device (as I posted earlier), but, do you think there is an argument here to suggest that the N96 won’t sell as well? My perspective was that the N95 and variants sold exceptionally well, so it might be hard to live up to those figures just because they are so high! What say you, our IntoMobile readers?
