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.
The port is a standard head phone one, but from trying it out it seems to only output through one earphone, hopefully our review unit is just broken though!
I am just wondering if interchangeable covers will be available for the n95. I really wish the face was black, and If I could eventually get the n95, I'd get a black metal cover, if available.
If money did nuff mi woulda buy tha fone yah fi all mi bregrin dem. Dah fone ya rule
I called samsstores.com and overseaselectronics.com and one said after the 15th of this month and the other said in 2 weeks and they both seem accurate

I wonder when n95 will come we wait for a long time it isnt good to make us wait too long time so we can change our minds i hope to tell us when it will come in emirates
hey guys check this web out...www.mobile88.com...it's a malaysian website and it contains ur lovely stylish N95...it's look a bit same with N80(i mean the back part)...by the way my stupid fren told me it costs around rm4000 plus in malaysia it's definitely,extremely stupid joke haha
This message is 4 R+L how can A phone 100 gms hav 160 gigabytes hardrive and 9500mAh battery impossible
Firstly the N95 ROCKS... ... ! ^^ But ...... unfortunately the poor battery life effects its overall score. A good phone would have about at least 1250mAh !!!^^ but ~ N95 only has 950mAh!!!~ And with the GPS navigation system ... it would last 4 about 10 mins on 950mAh battery. And by the way if any Nokia employee gets to read this giv your boss a suggestion........... Put optical zoom in it !!!!!!!!!!!! I saw these other batterys on the market (AA) they were 2000mAh each... ~ so Nokia ........~ improve. But .....(once again)....... Its other specifications r alright , whoever thought of the GPS navigator your a genius. Memory is o.k 164MB internal + a 128MB Memory Card comes with it so I'd giv it a 7-8/10......!!!!!! And By the way ......... don't make the prices toooooooo high. Thats a friendly sugestion.........!!!!~~~~~
