Steve Garfield took pictures with his Nokia N95 under poor lighting conditions and concludes that the N95 takes better pictures than the Nokia N93. Although he had problems with the focus and shutter time, he says it may be because he has a pre-production version. He also writes,
the N95 will make you very popular at parties. The meeting I was at was all about new software solutions in technology. One attendee told me that seeing the N95 was the highlight of his evening.
Prototype Nokia N95 phones have been delivered to a few people who have influences within the Nokia blogosphere. A list of people who already received a Nokia N95:
The Nokia N93i is finally available to the market. The first price a seller on eBay offered USD $945. That is about USD $100 less than how much the Nokia N93 initially sold but stil expensive. Keep in mind the suggested price for the Nokia N93i is 600 Euros (USD $775), so expect the prices to drop as more sellers get their shipment. You can track the prices for the Nokia N93i here at the Nokia blog.
Mobile Today announces that the Nokia N95 will be available to dealers on March 7th, 2007. That means it should trickle slowly into the market by the second week of March. They also claim that the UK is expected to have a two week exclusive over the rest of Europe on the N95. But that won’t stop those UK dealers from putting them on eBay so the rest of the world can start buying! Read the source…
Phonescoop previews the Nokia 6131 NFC with a video that demonstrates the new information transfer technology. The Nokia 6131 NFC is the world’s first fully integrated, commercial NFC handset, which will soon allow swapping business cards, collecting product brochures and buying coffee and more with the simple tap of a phone.
Very unlikely, but CNet editor, Bonnie Cha, claims that the Nokia N95 will be available by the end of this January 2007. Bonnie writes,
The N95 is scheduled to be released to other parts of the world by the end of the month. The company did add that they could make modifications to the current model and re-release it here in the States but gave no time frame as to when that might happen.
Could it be true?
I will review the Vox application in my Nokia N93. The Nokia N93i will be the first Nseries device to have the application built in, but existing Nseries phone owners can use Vox now by running a configuration file. Vox members are able to upload videos and full size photos directly from the camera or Image Gallery application. However I can only think of one scenario when I’ll need to use this service.
I took the Nokia N93 to the mountains for some video. In the last three years my friends and I have gone skiing, we had digital cameras to take pictures. This year, I had my Nokia N93 to capture movies that pictures cannot fully show. I did not want to lose or break the phone, so I only took it out at the easier slopes. I managed to get a few action shots… including Nelson wiping out.
Mr. Brown from the WTF Show previews the Nokia N76 and Nokia N93i at CES. He notices the brilliance of the display on the N93i and likes the flat keypad differently designed from the Nokia N93. His first impression of the Nokia N76 is the similar form factor to the Motorola Razr, but his opinion is best described by saying, “WOW… that’s fierce!” Check out the video.
