According to Nokia N95 is the world’s greatest multimedia computer. The new N95i has a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB onboard memory, 2.8” QVGA display, A-GPS, WLAN, HSDPA and Xenon flash. The phone has 30% better battery life then previous N95. The phone will be available in fourth quarter for Euro 560 ($750). The phone won’t support US HSDPA band. But don’t worry Nokia is releasing US N95 version also which will work on AT&T’s HSDPA. Main problem with the phone is it looks exactly like the old phone without lens cap for camera (not as sexy as the new black European version). The phone has better battery life, better cellular reception, double RAM and A-GPS.
