Nokia N95

I’m serious impressed with the new Nokia N95 that’s going to be announced later today.

It’s a little on the wide side for me (53mm), but I love almost everything else about it:

  • Series 60 smartphone
  • HSPDA 3.5G for high speed data and Wifi
  • Integrated GPS
  • 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and “near DVD quality” video
  • A slider with a d-pad instead of a tiny joystick (thank you Nokia)
  • 3.5 mm audio jack

I want this phone very badly indeed, but unfortunately I’m going to have to wait until Q1 2007 when it will be released.

    Nice. I’d like to see them use the GPS for more than just navigation though. Ideally with that internet connection it could tell you where your nearest restaurants, bars, cinemas etc are, when they close, what films are showing right now, your next train out of the nearest station… and automatic geotagging of photos of course.

    Well Nokia are going to offer city guides, and it will have builtin support for Flickr and Yahoo, so uploading geotagged photos should be possible if Yahoo or anyone else want to integrate the necessary software.

    It should also be pretty easy to write a small app that reads your GPS location from the phone, then uses it to open a Google Maps or Google Local page at your geographic location.
