Nokia N95 lands on US shores

Nokia N95

Without much fanfare, the Nokia N95 multimedia computer (as Nokia calls the much anticipated N80 successor) went on sale in the US this weekend. Currently available at the Nokia flagship stores in New York and Chicago as well as some selected retailers in cities like New York, Los Angeles, Miami and San Fransisco, the launch comes ahead of the European one.

The N95 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE device. It supports 3G but only on the European 2100 MHz UMTS band and not the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands used in the US. It runs Symbian OS 9.1 S60 release 3.1 and packs 160MB of internal memory, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 5MP camera with a 20x zoom (capable of 480p video recording at 30 FPS) and a secondary VGA camera for video calls, a digital music player and an FM tuner, a GPS receiver, autodimming 2.6-inch QVGA screen and a microSD slot (128MB microSD card also included).

The N95 sells for $749.99 USD and, so far at least, is not available through any carriers.
