Phone is currently available on pre-order at the carphone warehouse as handset only for £499.965, have not recieved any stock as of yet tho
all n-series phones give software problems. how can nokia launch a phone with gps if they cant even design a phone without software problems. if you want a good phone, buy a samsung - no software issues

no one can blame the battery life of this phone...this is a good performance phone so of cos the battery life will $ucks!...but think of a good performance car like ferrari or watever, do you think their fuel consumption is low???!!!...use ur brain to think instead of ur a$$
THis phone is taking waaaayyyyyyy to long to be released. I am tempted to just go and buy somethng else, like the o2 orbit or SE k800i.
But the thing is, no phone out at the moment is anywhere near as good as this thing. Looks like we are all just going to have to be extremely patient.
What I've been told at work (I work for Nokia Retail) is that the first batch have been shipped to UK as of 14th feb, and is likely to hit our stores (Nokia stores (ex Mobile Phones Direct)) on 20th of March, priced £499.99 (GP of which is about £60, so it's not likely to go down in price for a long while - I would even expect the price tag to go up but about £50 upon arrival, just because retailers CAN)...
...I have also been told Carphone Warehouse are scheduled for stock in their first delivery in April, O2 are due just after. I should imagine that Phones 4 U will follow suit, but I've not been told for sure on that one.
...But then the people at the top are ambiguous as ever, it wouldn't surprise anyone if it wasn't available 'til June!
can anyone tell me how the gps system works? if i were to buy this phone on ebay when it comes out, would i have a problem using the gps (considering i bought it from an over seas buyer, e.g. from hong kong and i am in australia)? please let me know! thanks!
Read your posting below on GSMArena.
I live in The OC and was wondering where exactly in Westminster you saw the N95 so I can go look at it too? What is the name and address of the store?
Also, do you know how much the store in Westminster will charge for the N95 once they get them in stock?
Please post the answer on GSMArena. Appreciate it.
Thank you very much
The phone will be sold out within the first month like every other hyped gadget.
The manufactorers do it on purpose, classic demand and need tactics. If they know the phone is in demand they underproduce then the hype for the phone becomes greater creating more demand for the product.
This has to be the most hyped and advanced phone in the last 5 years. Nokia havent released a decent phone for years, one thats got the technology but isnt a brick. They have surpassed themselves with this!
I have only seen it for sale at http://www.findamob.com in the UK but they have limited stock, O2 are releasing it on the 17th March. Whatever happens no one on here will be able to get it for months!
Apart from me who already has it!
ha ha ha
its wicked....but wen will it be launched...i think it would have been better if it was a touch screen! thats my opinion
Sim free price has been setup @ carphone £499.95 , Just waiting for stock now! ;0)
I held the display model nokia n95 in city of westminster california.
The phone is perfect!
I can't wait til i get mine...
They told me it will take couple of more days before they will actually have this awesome phone.
I just hope that all the functions in it will be flawless, coz I owned couple of smart phones before like palm treo and black berry pearl they both sucks when it comes in receiving incoming calls, somehow treo and blackberry phones are poor when it comes to receiving calls not sure why... maybe after they built the phone with too many features in it somehow it interrupts the signal of receiving phone calls.
I just hope this phone will be flawless coz I
will be the first to buy as soon as it releases on the market.
By the way, the blackberry phone I had before was made in mexico...
Would be nice if this phone is made in finland or made by nokia coz it would really suck to find out after spending $1400 and at the back of the phone it will say made in mexico or made in thailand or made in korea or made in china or made in hongkong or made in vietnam or made in antartica! lol
Ok I will sleep now maybe I need to rest can you guys sleep with me and dream about this phone...
(Before you start i am Australian) Why is Nokia taking so long to launch this phone? Because they want to release it making sure there are no bugs in the software and the GPS works good
Why is it so expensive? this is a simply math equation
1. GPS System = $500
2. 5MP Camera = $350
3. Water GPS System = $800
4. 2gig MP3 Player = $400
5. Nokia Mobile Phone With Symbian = $700
6. 5MP Digital Video Camera = $1500
7. DVD Player = $70
8. Pocket FM Player = $25
9. Handheld games System = $199
10. Personal Organizer = $90
11. CB Radio = $50
All this equals = $4634
ILL BE HAPPY TO PAY $1499
All you have to do is think about it and it makes sense, just cause you want it now doesn't mean its going to come out now, be patient its coming and when it does you will be happy that Nokia got all the bugs out first.
wow wow, Steve J,
well said....multimedia toy...hahaha....nokia usually launched devices 3-4 mths after announcement, and it has been close to 6 months now? and still not available, or only available in some places, obviously somethg is wrong.......
let's wait for the launch, reviews, and comments of users ( who are super dumb and super rich ) to be among the first to buy, to test out and let's see if it is really a device worth paying for.
Most likely reason Telstra rejected this phone on their NextG is that there are very few phones which ARE compatible with NextG, because of the network freq of 850. Even if they wanted it, they couldn't get it to work!
I think you people have to calm down and look at the facts. How can you have a phone of such complexity without a QWERTY keyboard? It means one cannot thumb type properly and take full advantage of the 2.6 inch screen in landscape mode. Secondly, would you buy a 5MP camera that had no optical zoom? You need OZ for modern photography. This is the 21st century and we know that digital zoom is rubbish. To add insult to injury there is no Xenon flash so low-light photography will be less than stellar. Remember that this "phone" is going to cost a fortune and the N95 is a multimedia device with phone capabilities. It should therefore have the aforementioned features. You people still think of the N95 as a phone with a few bonuses when it is in fact a multimedia device. It is ridiculous to have a 5MP camera without optical zoom. It is like having food without water. It is ridiculous to have a mini-computer without a QWERTY keyboard. It is like wanting to write but not having a pen. Nokia have to decide what they are giving us. Is it a multimedia computer or a multimedia toy???
ABSOLUTLY WRONG MARKETING ATTITUDE!!!!! I don't f***ing belive it. It's been over 6 months since they announced it and it's still unavailible!!! I would love to make some kind of an understanding with all you potential buyers not to purchase this stupid phone when on the market....this way maybe NOKIA people will learn their lesson not to hold that much with a lunch!! ABSOLUTLY WRONG MARKETING ATTITUDE!!!!!
