I use MP3 Trimmer to create my ringtones for my Nokia N95 using a Mac. The latest phones now are capable of playing mp3′s as ringtones.

According to Om Malik, there is already someone out there with a Nokia N95 with US 3G. In simpler words, the new Nokia N95 will now have even faster data connection in the United States.

I just watched Bourne Ultimatum and noticed that the Nokia N93 made several appearances in the movie. The Nokia N93′s were used by the CIA agents to transmit live footage to headquarters.

Compare the pictures from my Nokia N95 and my sweetie’s Canon PowerShot SD30 used on our cruise vacation. Both are 5 megapixel cameras, but my N95 is also a phone, computer, and more. If you look at the combined pictures, it’s not easy to tell right away which camera was used. I split the set so you can see which pictures are taken by the Nokia N95 and the ones taken by the SD30. You can also check out 6 comparison pictures after the jump.
In a few hours, I’ll be stepping into my first cruise to the Caribbean. I haven’t packed yet, but I’m really excited. Don’t expect any posts in the next week. I’ll be bringing my Nokia N95 and the Nokia N93i (thank you WOMWorld and Nokia). I’ll upload pictures from my Nokia N95 to Flickr if the WiFi on the ship works as advertised. I’ll have videos edited and uploaded when I get back from the trip.

Try doing this with your iPhone… oops, the iPhone can’t even do videos! Check out the blooper at the end.
I’ll be reviewing Nokia Media Transfer for Mac. It lets you transfer pictures, videos, music, and more between your compatible Nokia device and Mac. I’ve been waiting for this software to come out since I started using Apple. I like the fact that now I don’t need to put my phone in Mass Storage mode just to transfer files and also the feature that lets me transfer random music with user-specified storage amount.
