The N96 is a multimedia wizard, and it comes with the same five-meg camera and Zeiss lens that helped make the N95 our 2008 Gear of the Year winner. Unlike most phones, in which the camera feels like a gimmicky add-on, the N96 has the exposure and flash controls of a digicam. Built-in stabilization makes for easy video shooting, and with 16 gigs of internal memory (expandable to 32), the N96 can store tons of music, photos, and video. Plugged into a good set of headphones, the multimedia playercontrolled via a separate interfacedelivers the best sound of the bunch. 16GB, expandable; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, quad band; nokiausa.com
