Lumia series is the way to go. Lumia 900 is reported to sold out in the US. Symbian is a dying platform. WIndows phone is the future.

Search google for how to get the OVI Maps for phones like N95 which aren't officially supported.

All you who are looking for update for the Maps app, well the update was already released couple of months ago. This feature is already available for Delhi and Mumbai ever since, all you require is to switch on the traffic update option. I have been using this on Nokia (Belle) 701 and Nokia (S60) X6. I dont know about Nokia-Lumia.

What is interesting about this feature in India is that unlike how it works in the 'Developed World', which relies on available infrastucture like street-cams or traffic sattelites or choppers. The technology used in India is based on 'Probes' which are that are part of GPS devices installed on Taxis, Office Cabs, Commercial trucks etc.

My personal experience, it is trustworthy though not 100% accurate. I use it regularly and have opted to be a 'probe' as well to help other fellow drivers on the streets.
