Following up on promises made this summer, Nokia officially gave word on Monday that its flagship N96 smart phone is available in the United States. Though American consumers who have been drooling over the hot Finnish phone will be able to get their hands on it without any import shenanigans, the price tag on the new phone will keep it in firmly in the hands of the elite.
Key features on the N96 include a 2.8-inch display, 16GB of internal memory, a 5-megapixel camera, GPS, and dual sliding design. It’s also compatible with American 3G HSDPA networks in the 850 and 1900 MHz range, such as AT&T.
The cost on the do-it-all phone makes the first-generation iPhone look cheap: $895. Nokia will offer it in its flagship stores in Chicago and New York, along with a handful of independent retailers, and online.
