8 GB North American Model N95 available: $779 online


Nokian95You’ll have to really like the 8 GB Nokia N95 because it’s going to cost you near $800, but the model that supports HSDPA in the U.S. and Canada is now shipping. Emptying your piggy-bank nets you the integrated 8 GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and 1200 mAh battery. Nokia USA offers it up for $779 online, just add your SIM card and go. Actually, what’s not to like, provided you can get along with Symbian S60 as your operating system?



8GB is nice, as well as the user interface. The Vodafone package I bought in Europe appears to have annoying bugs. The Bluetooth-functions cause the device to freeze frequently (more than once per day). Synchronization of contacts and agenda using native SyncML causes duplicate entries.
Compared to my previous QTEK 8310 with Windows Mobile 5, the N95 8GB is much faster but by far less stable.
