Nokia N95 hits US stores
Nokia has at last begun selling the N95, the latest in its self-styled series of "multimedia computers" (smartphones). One of its most interesting features is two-way sliding, giving quick access to music controls in one direction, or a standard keypad in the other.
The phone also comes equipped with GPS mapping, as well as a five-megapixel camera, and the option of EDGE or HSDPA broadband -- the latter being capable of speeds as fast as 3.6Mbps. Other connection options include Bluetooth, WiFi and USB 2.0. The N95 should be on sale for $749 in major cities such as New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
