Nokia N95 with HSDPA

Nokia is readying an update to the N95 that will up the smartphone's Internet access speeds in North America, says Sling Media head Blake Krikorian. While the N95 on sale in the continent supports 3G only on European HSDPA networks and forces the slower EDGE technology in Canada and the US, Krikorian has confirmed that he is currently using an early sample of an N95 with native HSDPA support for North America built-in. The upgrade would let the smartphone stream video as well as greatly improve its web browsing experience, and is widely believed to be a direct result of Nokia's unprecedented success with its device, particularly in a US market that rarely adopts the Finnish company's high-end phones.

Nokia itself has not confirmed launch details, but technology news journalist Om Malik has verified that the updated phone should be available in the US by September for an unknown price. The initial version of the phone, released almost a year ago in the country, began sales at $750 as an unlocked device that was compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile but has since dropped in price.
