Expected to be superior to every other phone out there, owners are saying otherwise
Mobile phones are more powerful today than ever, and even best some of the old computers of the early 90's. Nokia this week officially made its "superphone", the N95, available on U.S. shores. The N95 was
released in Europe earlier this year
, but reports suggested that Nokia was already giving out samples of the N95 to several U.S. publications.
The N95 lands first at Nokia stores in the U.S. carrying a price of $749.99. Although it's a steep price for a mobile phone, the N95 has been long in waiting among phone enthusiasts. Nokia first made waves with the much anticipated release of its N80, which came out last year. The N95 is a highly upgraded version of the N80, sporting a new double-sliding face that reveals the numeric keypad as well as audio playback controls at the top. Like the N80, the N95 supports 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi standards is is based on Symbian OS 9.1 S60 release 3.1 -- the N80 was release 3.0. Some quick specifications include:
Display: 240x320 pixels, 2.6-inches and 16M colors
Memory: 160MB internal memory
Memory expansion: up to 2GB microSD (128MB card included)
Communications: EDGE, 3G, WLAN, Bluetooth, Infrared, GPRS, HSC SD
Like its predecessor, the N95 is capable of real-time 3D graphics, but as previous user of the N80, much of the N95's interface is similar. That being said, often time's user interface elements would show lag on loading. Some N80 users complained that the phone often froze while ending a call, which I myself did experience. Nokia responded and mentioned that it would be ironing out the kinks in the N95. However, users who have N95's are already noting that music playback is poor as is battery life.

Someone forgot to mention that the N95 also sports a 330Mhz CPU, which is a lot faster than some of its predessors which have the ~220Mhz one.
I think its time to overclock!!
