This phone is really nice and compares greatly with the sony ericssons in japan.
still not satisfied with the price.
this phone IS packed with features and u dont expect a high-end device for 300 dollars. common sense.
I agree with mT1X - If really the n95's battery life is same as n80's.. Than why should I or you buy this phone when it can't last for one full day in more frequent use of multimedia etc features in it?!
N73 has 1100, than why not N95 has 1100mah too?! Maybe some 2-3grams above the current weight?! I'm sure that 100% of the future owners will say "Much better is to be 4-5grams heavier, but with 200-300mah above!"
For such functionality the minimal battery capacity should be 1100mah, and not even a mah less!
I want to be wrong, and these 970mah to be enough, but I'm quite sure that phisically thats impossible.. Look Philips - they got just a liitle multimedia in the new models, and where is the 1moth standby?! In the pas, in the pas models - those who don't have such a features. The bigger capacity for those kind of features and a new energy tehnology for the phones! In the past 5 yers all the campanies did nothing about that! Shame..!
N95 is a great phone!! But i sure that most of us don make full use of all its function! We don need a 5M camera while 2M or 3M is good enough for 4R pictures! Further more,this phone is quite expensive!
you can buy this in e-bay! it is just joke:) just one man has got yhis phone. he is borat:)))))))))))))
The positive and innovative aspects of the N95 are out of question. But let us focus on a detail that will become a great issue when the initial enthusiasm of getting the phone is gone - the batery life. If the battery performance is like in N80 - it will be a shame. I got a N80 last summer and was very happy of all its features, but the battery was draining every day, and when using a bluetooth handset even couldn't last from morning to the eveneing without a recharge. I am afraid (hope I am wrong) that the situation with N95 will be close to its predecessor N80, a 970 mAh are obviuosly not enough for such device (compare with the Pocjet PCs, almost all of them have at least 1200 mAh and I wonder why Nokia did not take lesson from the N80). So please post your comments on the battery life of N95 if you already have it, it is very important, because it clear than everyday recharge will be quite annoying for phone costing well over 500 euro irrespective of all its features and merits.
i have the n80 for wi fi 3 mp symbian 3rd ed , not cuz it slides . if a n73 had wi fi , it s perfect for sports .
n95 non slider or use pore like a psp or N-Gage . NGAMES
Finally Nokia got it! Nokia has put all the best in this phone... it's so hot! Unfortunatly, it will also not have a reasonable price :P

Nokia is really starting to up the ante in the race to build the perfect multimedia phone, or "multimedia computer", as the company likes to call them. Their new N95, officially launched today at the Nokia Open Studio event in New York has a spec sheet that should make even the most die-hard pessimists drool a wee bit. The device looks much like the N80 slider that is currently on the market, but hidden inside that somewhat blocky shape is a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera, a GPS receiver, and HSDPA 3G and WiFi 802.11b/g data support - to name but a few of the highlights. One noteable physical difference between the N95 and the N80 that it looks so much like is the N95's dual-direction slider mechanism, which exposes an extra row of hardware buttons for controlling multimedia playback.
The new auto-focus, 5 megapixel camera unit, Nokia's first, makes use of Carl Zeiss optics, just like the N93 and N90 do. Images and videos can be uploaded to a number of different photo gallery and blogging systems. Videos can be recorded at VGA resolution at 30fps, and can be recorded with digital image stabilization. A TV out function on the N95 let users enjoy their works of art on a larger screen, too. The N95 also supports MP3, AAC, M4A, and WMA music playback through its built-in stereo speakers or headphones attached to its 3.5mm headset jack. An FM radio is also included in the N95.
Another new trick for Nokia is the built-in GPS capabilities found in the N95. The N95 comes pre-loaded with a mapping application that covers over 100 countries worldwide. Viewing the maps should be a pleasant experience thanks to the large 2.6" QVGA (240x320) display that can show 16 million different color shades.
Perhaps most amazing, considering all of the new capabilities, is the fact that the N95 is a few millimeters thinner than the N80, and weighs 15g less - coming in at 120g total. All of this multimedia power should be available to consumers in Q1 of 2007 at a price of around 550EUR before taxes and network subsidies. Nokia USA says that the N95 will not be released in the United States, but that they will offer "something similar" with the same technologies in 2007 for the North American market.
Wow! a wonderful phone, nokia do please keep it up. When would gsm arena post hand on review of nokia n95?
I just hope that the next N series will have an SSD drive built in, either 16 or 32 gb. - this assumes that price for SSD will drop A LOT.
Size and weight will considerably increase, but I can live with that!

I checked Nokia HQ in Finland on Google Earth and I couldnt see anybody coming out of the facility with an n95. I will continue to monitor the situation.
im sure that after a fer months nokia will release a new black edition for the n95.
nokia always does, but i srill prefer the normal white one.
noel.......u dont have this phone because it still has not been released stop saying u have used it because u own it
I've been using one of these for the last few weeks, the battery doesn't seem to last very long, having to charge every night with very light usage. The screen is great, very sharp and bright and has stood up well in my pocket with my keys. The camera is disappointing though, my pictures haven't been that sharp despite being taken in good lighting and it's no where near comparable to the photos taken with an old Kodak point and shoot 4MP digital camera.
