Nokia N95 8GB Gains DLNA

Nokia today said that the N95 8GB has been greenlit for the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) specification, making it the first cellphone to ever receive the status and the first to become a handheld media server. The approval allows the deluxe N95 to both share and receive media over a local Wi-Fi network between other DLNA devices; users can share music on the N95's 8GB of storage to a nearby notebook or browse the photos from a PlayStation 3. The feature lets phone owners be selective and share only some of their media with other devices in the area.

The Finnish handset maker has not said whether DLNA support is already available but notes that the upgraded media serving support should be free for existing owners of the device. Support is believed to extend to both the imminent North American Model and the original European version.
