Nokia Delays High-End Smartphone

by Reads (6,321)

Early this fall, Nokia took the wraps off the N95, a high-end S60 smartphone with cutting-edge features.

At the time of this announcement, Nokia said this model would launch during the first quarter of 2007. Now, however, a comparison chart on the Nokia web site shows that the N95 isn’t scheduled to debut until the second quarter of next year.

At this time, the reason for pushing back the release of this device isn’t known.

An Overview of the Nokia N95

The N95 will have Carl Zeiss optics on its 5 megapixel camera, allowing users to capture print quality photos and DVD-like quality video clips.  These can either be played on its 2.6-inch QVGA display or on a compatible television thanks to the device’s TV out feature and support for Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) technology.

This Symbian smartphone’s innovative 2-way slide concept will make it easy to switch between different modes. A numeric keypad will slides out from one end of the device while dedicated media keys can slide out from the opposite direction, converting the display into full screen landscape mode.

The N95 will be a GSM/GPRS phone with support for EDGE, WCDMA, and HSDPA networks. It will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

A GPS receiver, built-in stereo speakers, and a miniSD card slot will round out this model.

The Nokia N95 is expected to have an unsubsidized retail price of 550 euros.
