News of the new Nokia N95 have taken the blogsphere by storm. People like Justin who usually have long blog entries are simply left speechless. Incredible, incredible, incredible. A good intro with technical details can be found on AllAboutSymbian. And, likewise incredible: It took less than a day for at least half a dozen videos from the Open Studio Event in New York and from Nokia to show up on YouTube. Take a look here. I am amazed.
This will be my next phone, definitely! Things that stand out for me:
- It’s small size compared to other phones such as the N93.
- 5 mega pixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens.
- WLAN (o.k. already introduced in the N80, N91, N93…) but this is a must for my next phone. Let’s hope they’ve got a solid VoIP/SIP client in it this time.
- GPS inside. I’ve been waiting for this for a while. Endless possibilities. Also, see the N95 GPS video on YouTube.
- Category 6 3G UMTS HSDPA inside (according to AllAboutSymbian). That’s 3.6 MBit/s in downlink.
- Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) inside. Cool for wireless stereo headsets.
- All the usual multimedia features from previous models improved.
This one’s going to crush the competition!
