Well, its been some time since I’ve added any updates… my bad! To catch up I’m glad to share some of my Nokia N95 tales, tips, and otherwise interesting discoveries.. enjoy!
Rumors of the 8GB Nokia N95 are not exagerated. I have to admit, info about this device is tough to locate on the Nokia website although there are many images posted in the press area (no wonder people have a hard time buying this awesome device!) I wish I could tell you more about the availability on this elusive device, however, if you have a Nokia shop near you (New York, Chicago) you might see this cool device for sale. Like the traditional N95 its a quadband World phone, complete with integrated GPS, loads of cool apps to leverage you location information and memory - lots of it. With the supported 8GB card (supplied with this one) you can store all kinds of apps, videos, music and as of today you can try ALL the N-Gage games for free! N-Gage has matured from a device (mine got stolen from my car a couple of years ago - want some games??) to a platform. More on the 8GB N95 can be found (I think) at nseries.com or nokia.com (see also the N95 support site) - actually, nseries.com has a page devoted to this unit, however, it doesn’t appear to be available in the US yet… sorry! A tip.. Nokia, to sell even more of these units maybe bundle some integrated GPS supported apps on the deck that work without the need for doing loads of research, for example, send and MAP the photo to flickr, Google maps (like a MyMap) and try a couple of cool colors like Pink and maybe even a “Trimblish” yellow with a ruggedized, grippy shell.. that would sell! This device appeals to mobile field force workers and outdoor enthusiasts, maybe try marketing to them!
Moving forward, the Nokia N95 GPS-enabled multi-media computer (aka. smartphone) has been officially launched in the US - eventhough there’s quite a few already in use. What’s really weird is that North American users get the “lite” version.. think of it as the spanky device but with training wheels! While everyone else over the pond is being told about the 8GB N95 we get the 1GB standard version here… I guess North American’s don’t need the cooler looking version whith a whackin pant-load of memory… too bad! Nonetheless, if you want GPS-enabled mobile communication then Check out the N95. You get A-GPS, radio, awesome MP3 player, Nokia MAps app, a great web browsing experience, 5MP camera, video, loads of apps, and more.
