Nokia N95 Combines GPS with HSDPA

Nokia introduced its N95 , an all-in-one multimedia computer with a 2-way slide concept, integrated GPS functionality, a 5 megapixel camera and support for High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) mobile networks.

The 2-way slide concept makes it easier 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 integrated GPS application includes maps for more than 100 countries.

Other features include a large 2.6" QVGA 16 million color display, 3D graphics, built-in stereo speakers offering a 3D stereo effect, standard 3.5 mm audio jack, support for compatible microSD cards and mini USB for convenient data transfer.

The Nokia N95 is based on Symbian OS. It is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 at an estimated unsubsidized retail price of EUR 550.
