Itâ€™s touted as a multimedia computer that is set to become Nokiaâ€™s flagship device and after months of anticipation since its announcement last August, the Nokia N95 is now shipping in Europe, Asia and the Middle East (how â€˜bout the Americas?).
The N95 mobile phone has a load of pioneering features. It offers built-in GPS making it a very useful travel companion. Its 5-megapixel camera should give us plenty of resolution, but we still have to see whether its photos can indeed compare with photos taken with a regular 5-megapixel digital camera (because itâ€™s not just megapixels, kiddo, itâ€™s about how good its image sensor and optics are).
The N95 claims DVD-like quality video capture, and that too will have to be validated by real-world use. Wi-Fi connectivity is good and its support for HSDPA should mean broadband speeds for speedy browsing, emailing and downloading.
Its unique two-way slide design also offers a new way to use the device: slide the phone up and youâ€™re reading maps in GPS mode; slide it down and you can watch video or play music; no slide and you have a camera phone.
