Nokia today introduced the Nokia N95, an all-in-one multimedia computer with a pioneering 2-way slide concept, integrated GPS functionality, a 5 megapixel camera, and support for high-speed mobile networks.
Nokia reports that the N95’s 2-way slide concept makes it easy to switch between different modes, going from reading maps to watching a video with a simple slide. A numeric keypad slides out from one end of the device while dedicated media keys slide out from the opposite direction, converting the display into full-screen landscape mode.
The N95’s integrated GPS provides an application that includes maps for more than 100 countries, covering more than 15 million points of interest. Users can also purchase additional features, such as city guides and voice-guided navigation.
The company reports that the 5 megapixel camera enables users to capture print-quality photos and DVD-like quality video clips, which can be viewed on a compatible television thanks to the device's TV-out feature and support for Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) technology.
Designed for High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) networks and with support for WLAN, EDGE and WCDMA networks, the Nokia N95 is said to provide excellent coverage and speeds wherever the user may be. In HSDPA networks, browsing the internet, reading email, streaming video and downloading large files can be carried out up to 10 times faster than with 3G.
The Nokia N95 is based on the world's leading S60 software on Symbian OS, enabling users to personalize their device from a wide choice of compatible applications that can be downloaded to the Nokia N95, including games, navigation, entertainment, productivity and creativity.
The Nokia N95 is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 at an estimated unsubsidized retail price of around U.S. $700.
