Iphone just got introduce...so who know.... N95 may Hot be as hot anymore
Kiran, for optical zoom, I'd rather get a camera than a cell phone.
The n93 has a considerable weight and size which makes it more alike a brick than a cell phone.
IMHO, phones are better suited to double as music devices replacing things like iPods than cameras. You can make a phone have as good of a sound quality as the best portable mp3 you can find, but no matter how much you try, a phone's camera will never ever be as good as a dedicated camera, at least not without hurting a phone's ability to keep a really portable size and weight.
Can Anybody tell me where I can get a Firmware update for both N91 and N80 ???
Many Thanks in advance
Some info anout this multimedia device is here:
all the features u guys put in the phones u should also have the battery in it to use it but it is very dissappointing.
but still nokia is the best.
i've been waiting for these phone for bout a year and a half and it's really testing my patience!
because of the early announcement of this phone many people who wanted to buy it bought other more practical phones or latest phones in the market. Also because of that early announcement the design looked boring and old.
In fact there had already been dummy phones sold here in the Philippines!
Now nokia already announced new phones for the n series lineup the n93i(evolution of the famous fat n93 with 3x optical zoom) and n76(following the trend phone), i wonder if they would all with the n95 and n75 available in the same time or those 2 might be released first.
because of the delayed release of this phone nokia should be ready for the raised expectations given by the users.
The phone should run fast and swift!
I am very disappointed about N 95 because it doesn't have optical zoom that is present in N 93 !
I think this phone is great! however, can this phone perform consistenly good even if its loaded with song, images, videos etc.? and also, will it be slow to view the pictures from the gallery since we have a huge file from the 5mp cam?
N95 is out in India for real price not fakes!!!!!!!!!!
i have it atlast.my uncle works in the firm and he got me the n95.its awesome phone people gr8 camera.loudspeaker is great.a nice phone,man gr8 any problms reagarding this phone feel free to ask
Nokia people should disclose speed of the processor in N95. This would further attract the people that are using expensive PDA phones having unmatched features like in N95. So Nokia tell the world what actually is the speed of processor of this phone. And in future the processor speed should also be on the face of specifications of phones like this one.
i m realy ipress for some of the latest fiunctions ,espacily 5 mega pixel camera & gps system ..summy
why did nokia announced this fone early and release it late ??
other fone brands will have an idea on what to build and they might make a fone greater than this !!
nokia didn't make a great step on this one !!!
It's really bad that Nokia is being so coy about the "actual" release date - in any market. It really makes it impossible for us, the consumers, to make an educated choice about whether to wait for this model or to buy a different model. Imagine Sony not actually saying the date for the PS3 release. Nokia's current poor treatment of the us consumers does leave a sour taste.
What's with all these funny prewiews and rewiews or whatever, please, stop all these and start posting your own comments AFTER its launch! These are very confusing and misleading, and they're not final product thus they're not 100% accurate!

27 September 2006 - Launching around the globe on the same day, Nokia has opted for one big hit rather than pacing the launch of its latest products over several weeks or months.
Pocket-lint managed to get a brief first look at its "Hero" phone, the Nokia N95 expected to be available in February 2007 at the UK launch event in Soho, London.
While even the Nokia spokesman keen to show us the phone professed that he had seen it for as long as we had, our initial first impressions are very good.
Quoting Simon Ainslie the new Managing Director of Nokia, who recently joined from operator T-Mobile "There isn't much that it doesn't do" and when you look at the phone's features we, like Nokia, are hard pressed to see what's missing; 5 megapixel camera, 3G, wireless connectivity, dedicated music buttons, HDSPA, even GPS and bar missing a QWERTY keyboard you're pretty much there. Nokia has even gone as far as using the slogan “It’s what computers have become".
Wanting to be more than just another phone, the device comes with a dedicated maps application that includes maps for more than 100 countries and covers more than 15 million points of interest on a separate CD that you load into the phone depending on what you need and where you are. In our brief encounter we weren't able to see the GPS element in action.
The more conventional, but far from ordinary, is the announcement that the phone packs in a 5 megapixel camera boasting a Carl Zeiss lens, but no zoom. Nokia isn't the first to announce a hike in megapixel count, LG and Samsung are already all over that one, but it's good to see that Nokia isn't prepared to be left behind.
Unfortunately we weren't able to take any images away with us to see the quality, but the interface looked similar to other Nokia camera handsets and the 2.6-inch QVGA 16 million colour display screen certainly gives you a camera feel.
Luckily Nokia seems to have resisted the urge to put a rather large lens cover a la the K800i from Sony Ericsson instead opting for a robust, but thin lens cover which does the job just as well.
Other features include HSDPA, or 3.5G, the N95 also supports WLAN, EDGE, and WCDMA networks, 3D graphics, built-in stereo speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD card slot, and mini USB socket.
So it must be a brick, like the N93 - "the size of a house" one Journalist next to us asked - well actually it's rather small, slightly bigger than the N71 but still very compact and bijou.
Bored with the clamshell, candy bar or regular slider, the N95 enlists a triple slide function - up for the numerical keypad, down for the dedicated music keys, which are, in the model we looked at, slightly hidden and rubbery to touch.
The main keypad itself is, thankfully, rather staid and boring and Nokia has resisted the temptation as with previous models to make you jump through a series of hoops to simply dial a number.
The front of the slider, aside from the large screen that dominates the design features call, hang up and select buttons as well as the menu button with its strange icon (now in its third year) and a multimedia button that zooms you to the multimedia features.
Nokia users will also be pleased to hear that the interface looks identical to current models and the Finnish company hasn't chosen this moment in time to do anything too drastic here either.
The form factor hasn't changed much over previous models (apart from the extra sliding function), however what has changed is Nokia's emphasis and embracement of every technology that you can manage to fit into a small device.
In the past, when phone manufacturers have mentioned convergence, it's normally that they've managed to get an camera or MP3 player into there phone and boosted the memory a bit.
Here Nokia has managed to not only cram that camera (all 5 megapixels) and MP3 player (with new accompanying music service) in to the phone, but it's gone one step further and added a plethora of connectivity features and GPS to boot making this a multimedia fan's ultimate fantasy.
What's even more impressive is, that unlike the N73, which looks like a Sony Ericsson Walkman rip off, or the N93, which with its built-in camcorder is bigger than you would perhaps want, the final design is small compact.
Will this replace all Sony Ericsson's handsets (the K800i, the M600i and the W810i) in one foul swoop? Time will tell come launch day, however based on our initial brief encounter, if the features perform under closer scrutiny, then Nokia might finally see themselves back on top once again.
