Nokia has announced that today the larger capacity 8GB N95 will start shipping worldwide, going for about $764. The release has been enhanced for some geographical areas with a little help from Sony and the new N95 will come loaded with a feature-length version of Spider-Man 3, a Siper-Man ringtone and games. Unfortunately for those of us in the U.S. this is only going to consumers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We new it was coming soon, and now the Nokia N95 that was released in Europe a couple weeks ago is available in the US. An unlocked version can be purchased through Nokia’s site for the N Series mobile phones or through select wireless retailers, but it will cost you.
As with many situations “cool” comes at a price, and in the case of the N95 it comes at a price of $750. In order to try and justify the price for this gadget, keep in mind that this is the smartphone that slides both directions; one way to expose a keypad and the other to expose some multimedia buttons. It has GPS built-in with associated navigation software, a 5 megapixel camera, supports WiFi and Bluetooth but no 3G.
The Nokia N95 seems to have the right stuff, but its hard to …
We first gave you a heads up last September about Nokia’s new revolutionary design for the N95 handheld multimedia computer/phone; now the company has informed us that it’s begun to ship to European, Asian and Middle Eastern stores and will roll out everywhere else in about two weeks time. The 22 mm thickness design of the N95 is different in that it slides open two different ways depending on what you want to do with it. One direction reveals the keys for making a call; slide the other direction and you get another set of keys for all your computer functions.
It’s also got a ton of cool features including GPS, Nokia Maps software good for 150 different countries, a 5.0 megapixel camera (2592 x 1944, 10x zoom), support for HSDPA, WLAN, EDGE and WCDMA networks, built-in stereo speaks and high-speed WiF, voice recorder/commands/dialing …
Here we go. I like to see a little innovation with some different designs in phones. The clam shell is overdone and the slide is so last month.
Nokia has come out with a new multimedia-centric mobile phone called the N95. This phone, although not real large, is not following the slim down trend of many of the other new phones. So what’s the innovation of this phone, you say? It’s the slide. Not only does the Nokia N95 slide open to expose a keypad for dialing, but it slided the opposite direction as well to expose multimedia keys on the other side. Finally a phone that goes both ways. Who would have thought?
Some other key points that makes this phone site large above the rest is it’s 5 megapixel camera, built in WiFi and integrated GPS with built in Map software with over 100 countries. …
