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.
Can I enstalled mij tomtom6 software into the N95 ? Needed to know before buying it.
why is the phone big? use your common sense.
can anybody fit a bluetooth, gps, infrared, 5 megapixel camera w/ led flash, battery, OS into a k610i size? NO.
Lol reply to this please.
Um, if you read the specifications properly, it says a video w/ a resolution of VGA. THAT'S EXCELLENT. Most Sony Ericsson phones are QCIF and that's not soo good... And you've got Samsung, CIF. That's great. But the downfall I think for this phone (Using the information used in specifications) is the fact that when video calling, you can only use the max resolution of 352×288 but isn't the usual videocall camera's resolution at VGA (640×480)? BIG DOWNFALL IMO.
i have an n73 with me and all i can say about n95 is just..... AWESOME! 5 megapixel camera and all... really im gonna buy this cool gadgets when it is sold here in my country.. btw, where is it sold now? anyway, i have 1 critic, --> why is the phone sooooo big? isn't it heavy to carry?

I use N73, it has many software problems. Now it is in offline mode and dosent come out of this. fot me it is dead. I want to buy N95....I want to know if this fone also has some software problems?...Thanx in advance
N73 never will b cancled
and i got N93 and i got not a single bug wrong with it :) but my N90 had millions of bugs and the N80 i had was fine but had a few glitches
so i think im a heavy N series user i dont find many with bugs in
N95 will def b on contracts its the best phone out there
N93 isnt popular in uk coz no one here wants a big phone but me lol
N80 not really still here but N73 has kinda replaced it since its smaller and lil better cam and the N91 ppl want an ipod nano really than a lil 2 MP nokia 4 gb phone and it was soo late coming its not in
and N92 wont sell here since its late and out of fashion like who would go from a 3 mp cam to a 2 jus for tv not me
and N95 will boost the streets
Not at all discontined.
Fact is that it is not the OS that is full of bugs, BUT the carrier's own layer that they put ontop of the Symbian Series 60 OS.
Fact is that they haven't known to much about it and did you know that Symbian is the mobile OS that is most adopted by carriers all over the world for coming phones, so in the future there will be more and more phones based on the Symbian system.
tested prototype phone...double sided slider looks so cool...screen size even slightly larger than my N73...camera is clear enough even with no settings adjustment...but the price, i suppose is going to put off a lot of people til it drops drastically...maybe about the price, or even more than N93 when it's out, before coming down to more acceptable levels 3-6 mths later..
