N96 at Best Buy for $800

The N96 smartphone from Nokia is now available for purchase at Best Buy Mobile, priced at a high $800. While the lofty price tag was expected for the company's flagship handset, it's nevertheless more than four times the price of an iPhone or T-Mobile G1, though the N96's price is contract-free. The online Best Buy listing for the Finnish-made smartphone is $100 dearer, at nearly $900. It is, however, back-ordered. Certain Best Buy Mobile stores will have working demonstration models of the handset on-hand for potential customers to play with.

The quad-band N96 supports 3G data networks, has a 5-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera capable of shooting video at 30fps, and a built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module with UPnP connection. Built-in memory is rated at 16GB and there is an integrated microSD memory card slot quickly adding AAC, eAAC+, MP3 and WMA digital audio files onto the handset. Navigation functionality comes thanks to eGPS support and Nokia Maps software. [via BGR]
