the sliding mechanism is the one used by nokia 6280. The phone is available in Finland and Philipines. In usa and the rest of urope will be available before christmas.
Wasn't there a phone out a while ago before the N95 with a 5 megapixel camera?
I think there was...
Stop askin` about the collour ppl .. in won`t come in black .. it allready hai 2 variant .. deep plum and sand link kinda` collour .. the only thing is that the face of the fone is the same silverish collour ... only the back in a different collour !
Well, Owen.....the slider on the N95 isnt spring-assisted, but just like the mechanism on its sibling, the N80. But nevertheless, it holds up prety well....owing to Nokia's legendary build quality, and the grade of materials used. And anyway, the revolutionary 2-way slider has to be seen to be believed!!
This phone is amazing! I was at Nokia's head office in Sydney and had the chance to play around on a prototype and this phone is amazing!
The first decent sized phone to have GPS!
The first phone with a 5 megapixel camera!
and my I say, this camera is outstanding, its a carl zeiss lens and its prints are amazing.
The size of the phone is great, it fits in your hand perfectly, it looks great and the keypad is well spaced.
The multi-media key featured on all n series handsets has changed slightly as it gives a list of about 10 shortcuts that are fully programmable.
I can not wait for this phone! It is the be all and end all of phones! (and not just phones!) It will replace my digital camera, my N73, my ipod and my navman gps unit too!
this phone sounds real gud except for the price tag?? not any normal person can purchase a phone for $889 thats ridiculous.. can someone plse tell me wat the real price tag will be and if it comes in blackor any other color besides silver??
Hands on with the N95
Hey hi ppl....
I had the chance of playin wid an N95....!!!!!!! So here goes:
Well my first impressions of the build quality is that its very acceptable.... the only thing bad was the slide and the keypad, when under it making a lil movement... as in you could feel the space between the top and the keypad when the phone was closed... just a lil n minor though... may b because of the rough handling ppl might have given or what i aint sure but i'll give nokia the benefit of the doubt!
The slide is good both ways... really...!! It firmly clicks in place in both directions... The force u need to apply to open it is optimum.. neither too hard or soft... it wont open in ur pocket.. the feelin the slide gives u pushing it down is amazin !! The buttons there too are good... All in all very good build quality apart from the slight creaking which might b due to rough handling as i already said.
Screen & Illumination:
The screen gives u quite a wow feeling.. it does look big.. there was N91 8GB lying near it n the diffirence was huge! The pixels too aint much of an issue... of course it aint a N80 but it aint really less too! Giving up pixels for size is accepatble any day to me.
The keypad and the sides illuminate rather well.. the blue contrasts nicely.. The illumination of the side camera, review n vol. key is also pretty smart... Adds a fine touch...
Camera & Flash:
The camera as u ppl might have already seen on you tube takes a lil time to load and work around it... but it already is producing good pics... i tried clickin a few and sendin onto my phone but it rebooted often... So i wasnt sucessful there.. Damn!
The LED is indeed a powerful one!!!!!! It works like a normal flash used in cameras i.e. flashin multiple times while clickin one pic... This seemed to be one beautiful addition... N should give the SE Xenon flash junkies a kick... i aint sure of how it would b in the night as the area was brightly lit up... But way better that any existin nokia!
The audio from the loudspeakers is good! I beamed the tokyo drift song onto it from my phone to play n the stereo start is sexy! However it seemed to me that the output which is pretty loud, doesn't seem to support much bass... the sound was a lil sharp... But i may b mistaken as there were huge JBL speakers blasting music on the sides so compared to that bass......!
The output from the Bose headphones that were there too was amazin! A true music phone whose only folly is the micro sd!
The keypad is very usable n the key size is enough even for big fingers. Specially the way they come up is nice.. Fast T9 not a problem.
The camera open slide was pretty hard... really took an effort.. a lil crude i'd say.. hope it improves in the final product.
The camera, review & vol. keys are okay...
The software in its current state is buggy... a lot of frequent restarts... one think that they've changed is that the menu loads while booting n the press of the menu key after startup gives u instant access unlike the earlier phones... Menu workin is pretty fast too... applicatons start quickly...
The Maps application has a nice start to it.. kinda like google earth... But it wasnt workin here... alas!
Game (3D Acc.):
The reason ive made a special mention is because the feelin of playin that spaceship game is excellent... it works like a charm... no glitches, lags etc at all! PSP kinda stuff! 3D acceleration at its best!!!! Super Sexy!! Once programmers start using the music keys in games it'll just b great! N if they orient the display somehow that the keys come to the right it'll even b better!!!!! It was mighty impressive... !
Proto to Final:
The proto software is not really final yet owing to the reboots etc.. but its pretty close! 3rd party apps like adobe reader are up n running.... I dont think there should b anythin Nokia wont b able to fix within the next 3 months... Q1 2007 is realistic... Feb n wide availiability at a stable price shouldn't b a prob...!
Its a great device to hold... fits nicely in the hand... the highlight is the screen but there are others too specially the dual slide... the quality of the plastic could have been better for such a premiem device not that its bad now... a responsive UI exists... Awe inspiring if u aint the one holdin it... It'll blow over the non geeks too!!!
MY NEXT PHONE !!!
The phone will be one of the most advanced phones in the United States. However, phones in Japan have had GPS, mp3, and high resolution digital cameras--all in a clamshell.
Here is hoping something like the Toshibas (811T, 904T, etc.) make it over here to the U.S. While the Nokia N75 looks similar to those (and it IS nice), it lacks the GPS function. Sigh...
Maybe one day...
Wow, what an amazing product. I would like to be the first to own one and I am so glad that Nokia has come out with something so high tech and so kooooool. So tired of the stupid design of Blackberry plus my cell in the other pocket of my jacket. I hve been waiting to put my hand on a product that would give me the chance to empty the other pocket of my jacket with a Nokia N95 I can make amazing pics so clear, mind you Sony use the same lenses and also I love this product so I can have space in my jacket for my favorite candies to eat during my travelling. Buon viaggio.
why u say that this is an old tech?
It has 5MP camera, GPS... there is no smartphone in the world like this one...
BTW: I have a N93 and I will buy this one too.
Also I like the movie of N95...

Same question dude....does the slide mechanism really works or the stuffs like N80????.......
WAIT! nokia are bringing new phone soon after n95. codename is n100. has improved screen resolution, 5* optical zoom, 8gb hardrive,half thickness and in black!
"The Nokia N95 is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 at an estimated unsubsidized retail price of 550 euros."
Direct quote from Symbian website, so this phone may not be as expensive as everyone is predicting.
all the gadgets in the world couldn't save this phone if the software died, and this thing is too long for me to go through and see if anyone has actually used it.
so how is it functionally?
Eid mubarak. To Haider-
R U blind? The sound quality of N95 is far good than any SE PHONES. Because N95 provides 3D sound. Show us a singal phone of SE PHONE that provides 3D sound. Do U know n73's 3D sound is louder than any of SE PHONE (Even louder than k800). R U really blind? N95 scored 9.2 (Not 7.5) out of 10. Who said that Next SE PHONE Will come with 5/6 MP. U R really blind. Blind. Blind.
Just got this response from the Spanish website: "We dont know exactly when the nokia N95 will be available. Nokia dont said us the exactly time when they deliver in Spain this Nokia. In the last meeting they show the Nokia N95 but they don´t have time for delivery, but we supose that in december can be available."
